How to buy a Bondage Collar

Bondage Collars are a symbol of submission & control, they are often worn in the bedroom, but are also worn by submissive partners at fetish clubs and events, illustrating the position of the submissive. Collars are also very practical and are usually designed to have other bondage equipment, like leads or restraints to be attached to them.

Buying a bondage collar can be a difficult experience, especially if you do not know much about collars, or the size you need. Our bondage experts here at Loving Joy have created a short guide to help you choose the right collar for any occasion!

Finding the right size:

Buying a bondage collar that fits depends on two things, the size of the collar and the fastening.

Before buying a collar, make sure that you find our your neck size. You can do this with a flexible tape measure to measure the circumference of your neck. Find out your neck size and then find a collar that you like the look of and take a look at the product page and information where you will be able to find the adjustable circumference of the collar.

Types of Collars

There are numerous different types of bondage collars available, and hear at Loving Joy all our bondage collars go through our vigorous selection process, so no matter what collar you choose, you’ll know that you will have chosen an extremely high quality one.

When buying a bondage collar the best place to start is to find out what type of collar you’re after. You may want a collar for role-play or maybe for a fetish event. Below is a brief overview of the different types of bondage collars available.

Slave Collar

Slave collars are straight forward and easy to use and are usually made from leather or a rubber material. Proper collars will have a buckle fastening with a pad-lockable buckle, giving the dominant complete control over their submissive. However, other slave collars may have a simple push-hole system or a Velcro fastening for easy use. The real purpose of a slave collar is to show that you are someone else’s property, so the type of fastening isn’t incredibly important. Slave collars will usually feature a D-Ring or O-Ring on the front to allow for other bondage gear to be attached. This may be a leash, clamps, or even wrist cuffs, giving you ultimate versatility in creating a submissive look and feel.

Collar and Leash

In general you can attach a leash to the majority of different collars. That is why some collars and leads are sold separately. However, we also sell collar and lead sets, which are usually better value then when you buy them separately. If you are planning on experiment with some puppy play, or other animal role play, then using a bondage collar and lead set would be perfect. The great thing about buying a collar and leash is that it you no longer want to use the lead you can simply remove it. Leads usually have a quick release trigger clip, so if you no longer want to use it you can easily take it off. This also means that you can add other types of bondage accessories to it.

Collar with Clamps

Clamps with collars really allow you to fully experiment with a more fetish side of collar play. We do not sell sets of clamps with collars, however if you have a collar with a D ring you will be able to attach some of our nipple clamps, or even a nipple and clit clamp to your bondage collar. Using nipple clamps with collars helps to restrict movement of the neck and body giving the dominant even more control over the submissive.

Remember when using a bondage collar or any other BDSM equipment to play safely with your partner. When using a bondage collar don’t pull tightly on or sharply, as this can damage your partner and your bondage equipment!
