Finding, selecting, and buying the best collar is an important step for every Dominant and submissive couple. We've outlined some of the most important steps to take, and things to keep in mind when going through this process written by experienced people in the BDSM community.

What is Plaything?

All our products are made by hand by expert artisans in South America, using only the finest materials like ethically sourced genuine leather.

What are BDSM collars?

Collars are items of clothing worn around the neck often with the intent of displaying that the wearing is in a submissive or slave role. Collars are often used as a symbol of the wearer's "owned" state by their Dominant, and in many ways play a similar role to that of a marriage ring. As such, collars come in a variety of styles and sizes, ranging from very subtle necklace like day collars to more intense locked slave collars. Collars and leashes are classic visuals that one associates with BDSM and other forms of kinky play but they often have much deeper meanings for the wearer's and their partners.

Whatever your intended uses for the collar, it is important that you search for the right option for you and your partner. Our collars at Plaything have been designed to look stunning while also provide years of playtime by using only the finest raw materials and ethical craftsmanship.

Collars in Fashion

It is also increasingly fashionable to use a BDSM collar as a fashion accessory, similar to a choker or necklace. These collars are more commonly made of softer materials and will prioritize aesthetics over their bondage capabilities. Goth and punk subcultures have accepted collars as part of their general fashion identities for decades and aren't necessarily linked with BDSM activities. You can also add little design details to your sub collar, especially if it comes with multiple rings with accessories such as a leash or bell.

What are collars made from?

Collars are often crafted from black leather, but can also be constructed from synthetic materials, rope, or even metal. Most readily available collars however tend to be of lower quality, using cheap textiles and weak bindings. Plaything collars however are designed specifically to be of the highest quality, produced in a way that makes them both visually stunning but also capable of enduring years of intense play.

What are collars used for?

Collars have a variety of uses, from acting as a fashion accessory to being an integral part of a Dominant/submissive relationship. At the end of the day, it's important that whatever collar you choose, and for whatever purpose, you have fun in the process. Whether you're looking for your first collar to go with an outfit or whether you're a kink veteran looking to add a cherished piece to your collection, Plaything has the best handcrafted BDSM collars for subs and their Partners that you can order online and ship worldwide, usually with free shipping!

How to find the right BDSM collar?

Choosing the right type of collar

The very first step to picking the right collar for you or Your submissive is understanding what exactly you are looking for. Are you looking for something that will be usually primarily as a visual accessory, a tool to be used in intense play, or is it a symbol ring to put around their neck? If you are looking for the former, any of our Plaything collars will work well and can be used for any of your creative outfits, just search through our handcrafted collars. If you are the type to enjoy the rougher kinks, make sure you select a bdsm collar with thicker materials and larger rings so that you can ensure that it'll be compatible with any other play gear that you may already have.

Here are some of the most common collar types: DDLG Collars, Eternity Collars, Leather Choker, Choker Collars, Petplay Collars, Metal Collars, Bondage Collars, Locking Collars, Leather BDSM Collars, Posture Collars, Sub Collars, and Day Collars.

Picking the right size for your neck

The second step to picking the right collar is understanding what size of the product you will need to find. Most collars come with adjustable straps, but it is important to make sure that whatever bdsm collar you choose has the option to be increased and decreased in size. If you are unsure of how to measure your neck for a collar, consider checking out this guide.

Selecting the perfect styles

Just like any other piece of gear, BDSM collars come in many different styles and visual aesthetics. It's entirely up to you and your partner to decide what makes the most sense for you to wear. Some people decide to have a couple of different collars at their disposal in various visual styles so that there is never a lack of variety for diverse outfits and occasions. Whether you're a sub looking for a cute black leather accessory to show your devotion or a Dominant looking for a memorable gift, there are no wrong choices when it comes to selecting a bdsm collar style.

Accessorizing with Leashes and other add-ons

Once you've found a collar or two that you really like, you should consider ordering some other add ons such as a leash to go with your BDSM collar. These little accessories can really take your experience to the next level by adding another layer of control. In this case, a leash can make it easy to lead your partner during playtime. A high-quality leather leash is an important tool in your bedroom toolset and can be ordered online from us at Plaything. You might also consider nipple clamp chains that can be attached to your collar if you and your partner enjoy that during play. DIY accessories for your collar include things like adding a locket to the ring, or a bell so that the little dings can be heard around the house, a subtle reminder of the power dynamic in your relationship.

Finding the right price

Collars are a great example of getting what you pay for, as prices can range from very cheap in the single-digit dollar ranges up into the hundreds for bespoke custom collars with jewels and precious metals. Finding a product that is the right price will come down to whether to how much you feel comfortable spending on a piece. Raw elements like genuine leather will also cost more than leather and plastic options which are regularly available on the big sites. Expect to pay anywhere between $40 and $90 for handmade higher quality leather collars.

BDSM Collars for Your Submissive

A BDSM collar can be a really important part of a D/s relationship, either used as a tool in the bedroom, as a symbol of ownership or any other importance that a couple gives it. Whatever your goals are for a collar, it's important that you understand what you want it to symbolize for you and Your submissive.

Your collar is your identity

Pick something that visually represents both of your styles and power dynamic, whether that be something really bold and obvious like a metal posture slave collar or something subtle like a dainty day collar that only the two of you know the meaning of. Shopping online for your collar can be a tricky task, especially with so many options out there but it's worth spending the time on to get right as it's likely something either you or your partner will wear for extended periods of time. It's important to take things like supplies, craftsmanship, and quality into consideration, especially if you want to feel proud of it when you go out to kink community events, or even in the privacy of your bedroom's bondage set up.

Different collars for various situations

Just like any other piece of clothing, it can be useful to have a variety of contrasting collar styles and types in your collection. Similar to how a watch enthusiast has an everyday watch and a going-out watch, consider ordering a couple of distinct collars that match the different types of activities that you enjoy partaking in, as well as how much variety you like in your or your partner's outfits.

Why does the right leather bdsm collar matter?

What is Plaything?

What are leather BDSM collars?

As discussed, leather collars can be used for a variety of things, ranging from simple fashion accessories to symbolic pieces of jewelry similar to that of a wedding ring. There is no right or wrong reason to wear a collar, as long as you are doing it safely.

The average leather collar is made up of a black band of leather, tightly fastened around the neck and secured with a buckle or similar locking mechanism. The majority of collars will also come with one or more rings on the front, primarily as a means of attaching bondage restraints or accessories like a bdsm leash. The product can come in a wide variety of styles, with varying colors and materials.

Collars in Fashion

Collars are common accessories in the fashion world, most commonly as a staple in the goth and emo cultures. Often accessorized with oversized rings, and adorned with spikes, the collar is a popular day-to-day fashion choice. Collars may also be seen on outfits from certain Japanese fashion subcultures, particularly during the 90s and early 2000s.

What are collars crafted from?

Collars can be produced from just about any material, but the most common options are black leather and metal for higher quality classic designs and pleather/plastic for modern mass-produced items. It's important to take your time when considering your first collar to ensure that you are getting the highest quality product made from the finest materials.

Your intended uses should also come into consideration when selecting product materials as something like cheap plastic and metals might work well for fashion purposes but not if you want to engage in intense play sessions. If you are looking for a really unique collar, consider putting in an order for a custom design. These will usually cost more but will ensure that you get exactly what you're looking for while also ensuring the highest quality outcome. When it comes to getting a truly great collar, you get what you pay for rings very true.

What are collars used for?

While collars have their uses in fashion, they were originally designed as means of restraint, and control. In modern times, they are popular tools in Dominant and submissive relationships. This tends to be a collar's primary use, acting as a bondage instrument as well as a visual symbol of love and affection. The ring attached to your average collar will usually be used for attaching secondary tools like leashes or nipple clamps when in private.

Many submissives and slaves choose to use discrete day collars as a means of displaying their "owned" status while in public without arousing too many strange looks. These collars aren't designed for intense play but rather more so like important jewelry to show their deviation to their partners. Some collars will also have intricate locking mechanisms with some having a lock that can't ever be opened without breaking the collar itself, usually referred to as eternity collars. These are popular options for wearing to public BDSM events.

How to find the right slave collar?

Beyond picking the right color and style, finding the right slave collar is an intricate process with a couple of steps. Not only is it essential to pick the right bdsm collar for your use case, but it's also paramount that you make sure that the producer you are shopping with is reputable, their products are of the best quality, and that they offer quick, free shipping so that you can get your product quickly. Take the time to read through the next steps during your search and make sure that you're happiest with what you buy.

Choosing the right type of collar

As you start your process of finding your new slave collar, think about what you will be using it for the day to day. Are you looking for something to add to your wardrobe or are you looking for something to keep under the bed during kinky play sessions, or are you looking to please your partner by wearing a day collar to visualize your submission to them.

Some people also decide to buy a number of collars for different purposes and will change them out for every different occasion. If you need help figuring out what is the correct kind of collar for you, take our short little quiz or reach out to us for help. We are always available to give you a hand with your collar or another play-gear-related journey.

Picking the right size for your neck

The first step is understanding what size collar you need to ensure that it is both comfortable and safe since collars need to worn be tightly around the throat. It's paramount that you select one that can be adjusted to your neck's size to ensure that your breathing isn't hindered and that it rests well on your skin. Before putting in your order, make sure you read through this neck measurement guide.

Selecting the perfect styles

By now you should know what kind of style you are looking for in your collar. If you plan on using a collar primarily for fashion purposes this is the most important step, and you can pick just about any that match your ideal look and feel. Now if you are planning on using the collar (s) for BDSM purposes, then it's important for you to research what makes the most sense for the type of play you want to engage in. For example, if you are looking for something to completely restrict your partner, then consider a full face posture collar and hood combination, or if you are looking for something that can endure long, intense bondage sessions, make sure that you are selecting something sufficiently thick.

Accessorizing with Leashes and other add-ons

Once you feel you're close to moving forward with a collar or two, consider ordering some accessories to go with your new gear, especially if you can find some on sale! The rings on your collar make it easy to attach things, most commonly a leather leash, or body chains. You can also consider adding some traditional jewelry or whatever else you want to act as a sign of your submission to your partner.

Finding the right price

Great, so you've selected your styles and the right sizes, now it's all about finding a product in your budget. Regardless of whether you've got a small sum to spend, or you're ready to pay whatever it takes, there are options out there ready to ship.

What are submissive collars?

First you must understand that submissive collars are made specifically for people engaging in Dominant/submissive relationships, and often act both as a visual display of one's status as a sub, as well as having rather practical uses during bondage sessions. A submissive neckpiece might look similar to any other collar that you might find at a local punk fashion store but it is the meaning that you and your partner give them that sets them apart. Whether you find yourself in a slave role, or as a Dominant looking for a gift full of symbolic love, a submissive collar is a great choice. Collars can play a similar role in a D/s relationship as can a wedding ring in traditional relationships. Dedicated lifestylers might even engage in collaring ceremonies, which are similar in their importance as weddings are to the rest of society.

Usually worn around the neck, submissive collars are usually made of beautiful black leather and have a single ring on the front, primarily used for attaching accessories like leashes or chains. Similar to a piece of jewelry, a collar can also play more of a visual role, with submissive chokers ranging in intensity, from simple leather chokers around the neck to large, imposing posture collars with hoods. Some submissives choose to show their devotion to their partners by wearing discreet day collars, which are often indistinguishable from a necklace or other jewelry. Whatever you choose to wear a bdsm collar for, you must search for one that matches your aesthetic and functional goals.

Collars and their place in fashion

Submissive and bondage collars have often found their way into various subcultures and their fashion styles. While in some cases people are also using the collars for the initial submissive purposes; the majority are just using it as a fashion accessory. The collar has been a popular part of punk and goth aesthetics for decades, with the 90s choker being a softer, more discreet version of that look. Wearing a collar has also been a staple in certain Japanese streetwear subcultures, often acting as a form of jewelry or as a means to attach other accessories to them, such as bells or other trinkets. If you are looking for a high-quality leather submissive collar to add to your fashion collection, consider browsing the Plaything collar shop.

How are collars made?

Collar production heavily depends on several factors, ranging from materials, manufacturing, style, and more. The standard BDSM collar in 2021 is made in a factory in China in large quantities, usually made out of cheap materials like plastic and brittle metals. These collars are often made in unethical work conditions, will break easily, and are just one of a million others. While these are perfectly valid for cosmetic purposes, they don't provide their wearers with much flexibility when it comes to intense play sessions or long term durability. When a collar can mean so much to submissives and their partners, they must order products that match their intended uses.

On the other hand of the spectrum, many custom and hand-assembled collars are available to buy online, however, this usually comes with large price tags, ranging into the hundreds of dollars for a single piece of gear. While these products are beautiful and well built, it's not always within the realms of affordability for everyday kink enthusiasts. That being said, it's much better to support these artisans than the mass-produced products that usually end up in landfills.

Plaything collars are different in that our products are produced by hand by expert artisans in South America with ethically sourced materials such as genuine leather and jewelry grade sterling silver. All our collars, leashes, and other leather goods are created in limited edition runs of 999 pieces each, meaning that once they sell out, they become highly valued products that can't be ordered from our shop ever again. If you want a piece of gear that will last years and is designed specifically to endure intense play sessions, then Plaything collars might be the right choice for you but at the end of the day, we want you to order something that you feel great about, whether that is from us or someone else.

What are some uses for a submissive collar in BDSM?

As mentioned above, bdsm collars can be used for several different uses ranging from acting as symbolic jewelry, fashion statements, and import tools during bondage play. As they were originally designed for the former use case, you will often find collars with at least one ring on the front or around the collar. This is because its purpose is to act as something that someone can latch onto with a leash or with their fingers to control the submissive wearer.

BDSM collars are also important parts of any rigging set up where a sub is suspended and tied up, with the collar being an important part of restraining their head and with it, much of their control over their bodies. Adding a couple of accessories to a collar is also a popular move for submissives and their partners as there are many options out there like nipple and clit clamps, chains, gags, and even full-face hoods that can cover the sub's entire head.
