This girl has decided to do a new (hopefully) weekly series of posts on various kink retail experiences she has had. This series of posts are based on personal experience and are not sponsored reviews. The main reason why she thought about doing was this because of the number of times she gets asked ‘where did that come from ?’ A lot of items are made of course by Grimly but quite a few items are bought as well.
This girl has not received any money/products for her comments and are based on her own opinions of places she has chosen to shop at and products she and Grimly have chosen to want.
Hopefully this series might introduce you to some new items and websites you might not have seen before or give you confidence to go ahead with a purchase. Anyway hopefully you will enjoy! The first review is of the shop where this girl here most recent purchase.

What this girl bought : Butterfly straight jacket
This girl chose to buy a leather butterfly straight jacket as she has lusted after one for a while and especially as she loves the latex one her friend TLC designs made for her very much.
Christopher is the first person this girl knows of to have designed a butterfly straight jacket and the ones he makes are absolutely stunning but this girl wanted one she could have this week, and whilst she’s on Christopher’s waiting list for a ‘project’ it might be some time before that comes to fruition. Needless to say when this girl gets her mind on something it’s very much ‘ooh i want that now’ lol. That and, she has so many ideas of other bondage items that she already has that will work so will with this.
Butterfly straight jackets are also available at the Church of Sinvention in Canada (approximately for double the price this girl spent at McHurt). Though, this girl has heard very good things about the quality of Church of Sinvention too (though not shopping there)
Since it only arrived on Friday, this girl has not had opportunity to play with the jacket much yet other than to try it on but the quality is very good. The sizing of this particular item is based on female dress sizes and this girl chose the 14-16 which is a good fit for her build though it comes in smaller sizes and also larger ones. The leather is really good quality and its an adaptable item since the ‘sleeves’ have zips so the arms can be released from the upright position without taking the whole jacket off and also the crotch straps can either be used or removed so it’s quite versatile. Handy breast zips too 😉
Overall this girl is really pleased with the purchase and can’t wait to try it out properly next week (photos of rigorous testing to follow soon!)
Here’s a picture for now though of McHurt’s model demonstrating it :
Here’s a picture now also of this girl demonstrating it, though there are now others to be found around the blog too 🙂
As a shopping experience overall it was very good and this girl would buy other things from them in the future. She has friends who have the bolero arm binder and that is also very good quality. Given they have a good range of hitty things and gags its possible this girl might also purchase some of those in the future but there are so many other things on her wish list first!
