The Frisky Fairy Reviews: Bandelettes

The Frisky Fairy Reviews favorite toys, books, blogs, and other fun sex education reviews!

It is holiday review time! I’m going to compile 4 reviews of 4 new (or new to me!) products that you might love! Welcome to day 2: Bandelettes, for the lingerie lover in your life!

I have a confession to make. I am absolutely obsessed with lace. I love the way the right lace feels under my fingers. I adore the way my skin peeks through a black or a white lace. I find it to be super sexy on me and I feel like skin through lace is just so incredibly erotic. I am also a wearer of scandalously short skirts. They show of my awesomely long legs (#humblebrag), and I love them, but I always worry about how short they are and whether or not I’m going to incur the wrath of loud mouthed assholes. 

And then I stumbled across Bandelettes, and now I am a little bit obsessed. I hope that with a couple changes in their next iterations, these will be absolutely perfect.

So! Bandelettes are bits of lace with two silicone strips on the insides to keep them from sliding down your legs. The silicone keeps them from slipping or sliding down your legs. They’re 5.5″ long, and come in a variety of colors and they size all the way up to a 32″ thigh! I found it really heartwarming that there is this excellent lingerie/accessory that makes sure to take into account plus sized wearers! They offer unisex options as well, but I really feel like the lace would work for anyone who wanted to wear it, regardless of sex, gender, or expression.

I love, Love, LOVE the way that the lace feels. I love soft lace. The kind of lace that you could sleep in. I love lace that feels like satin on my skin. I love lace that just feels like I could wear a robe made of it, and at this, Bandelettes excel. My goodness do they excel. I just love to touch them. They are soft and silky and feel incredible. The fabric is amazing and basically feels perfect. I can’t speak for the other designs, but these, the black onyx simply feels and look divine. I feel sexy just putting them on!

Because you know I'm all about that lace, 'bout that lace...

There are a couple things that were, unfortunately, a problem for me. I ordered the appropriate size, and measured multiple times, I even had my husband measure with me. I got the size that is supposed to work, but they were too big and slipped and fell down as I walked. I can fix that with a smaller size, or even a garter belt, but I kind of felt like the point was to not need a garter belt. Make sure you measure correctly. The other issues for me is that my legs are LONG. 5.5 inches of lace is not enough to cover my thighs and save against chafing. They have a 6″ one that would potentially be better, but I doubt it would be better by much. I wish that they had a version that were shorts. Sexy lacy shorts, or lace bands that were 8, 10, or even 12″ long

6 inches, not enough to protect against chafing, but more than enough to look FUCKING SEXY.

I like the Bandelettes as a lingerie piece, but in practice to protect against chafing they’re sort of a bummer for those of us with longer legs or wider thighs. However, even with that, they’re sexy as fuck. And so, Bandelettes get the Frisky Fairy seal of approval. Get frisky and get yours here!
