Selecting a strap-on harness can be intimidating especially if you are unable to try it on. As long as you have the right information and make a few key decisions, it should be easy.

Here are a few tips on how to choose a strap-on harness:

Style

A G-string or one strap harness are worn like a thong. People prefer G-string harnesses because they like the pressure from the strap on their genitals, while others find it uncomfortable. This harness gives you more control but the strap will be in the way if you will also be enjoying genital stimulation.

A double strap harness fits around the legs similar to a jock-strap. The leg straps fit around the tush for better control and adjustability. This dildo harness stays in place and allows for the genitals to be exposed. Many people find this harness more comfortable. However, it does take a little practice to use and might need adjustment if changing positions.

Luxury harnesses now come in a regular panty style. They look and feel like regular panties and are very comfortable. There are no buckles or adjusting necessary. This harnesses are usually machine washable. Not only are panty style harnesses easy to wear but they look beautiful as well and can be worn all day.

A double dildo compatible harness allows for the wearer to have a dildo inserted as well. It is designed with a backing that allows the user to unsnap the back from the front and insert 2 dildos or a double dildo.

If you prefer to have material between yourself and the dildo, some harnesses have an internal panel that offers the wearer a covered dildo base. However, some people enjoy the stimulation fo the dildo against their genitals, especially when using a vibrating dildo or bullet vibrator. Harnesses with internal panels are perfect for dildos with balls, as the balls fit in front of the panel (resulting in less pinching and pubic hair-pulling) and are less bulky than if they fit behind the harness.

For added stimulation, you may want to consider a harness that has a pocket that fits a small bullet vibrator. This increases stimulation for the wearer. 

Buckles vs. D-rings

Harness straps can be fastened with either buckles or D-rings. Buckles might take longer to fasten but they will never slip. D-rings often slip where the straps loosen, but they can be easily adjusted for a tighter fit by pulling on the strap with one hand. Harnesses with D-rings can also be put on and taken off quickly. Some harnesses have buckles around the waist and D-rings around the legs. This combination works great when you are in a hurry.

O-rings

The ring on the harness that the dildo goes through is called the O-ring. Some harnesses have permanent rings, while other have rings that can be interchanged for varying-sized toys. Larger dildos may not fit into a permanent O-ring, which generally measures 1 ¾". Be sure to check the diameter of the O-ring of a harness (if it is permanent) and the diameter of your favorite toy to make sure they are compatible. If the harness style allows for interchangeable O-rings, you can buy O-rings to fit your dildo and snap it into your harness.

Material

Leather harnesses get softer and and more comfortable, molding to your body over time. Although leather feels good against your body, it is hard to clean because it should not get wet. Therefore, it can be hard to maintain and disinfect.

Fabric and nylon harnesses are machine-washable, but they are not dryer-friendly. Some fabric harnesses are as comfortable as leather harnesses and can be worn in the shower or tub. These harnesses are lightweight, which makes travel easy.

Size

Most harnesses range in size from about 28" to 60" around the hips. Consider if you would like to wear your harness around your waist or low on your hips.
