Although not a new item or idea, I thought worth sharing this belt as another quality built item from Top To Bottom Leathers

There can be a lot of "bondage belt" variety these days so both core design intent and the small details can make quite a difference. When the average person hears bondage belt they might think of a fashion style punk belt, however for BDSM play usually one will want something a little more substantial for any sort of struggling fun. This particular belt design I think finds a good balance of being substantial while also not being overly tall coming in at about 3.25" / 8cm.  A traditional belt height around 1.5" feels more strap-like and taller designs that are 4"+ can feel like overkill and give a different body look and feel. Additionally there are some pretty belt designs out there on places like Etsy, however use mostly garment leather so are more just for fashion or light play. If unfamiliar with the general purpose of a bondage belt, they can be great to attach hands to, yet can also be helpful to attach as body weight support and torso restraint.

   

The design is a 2 piece construction which has a slight down side of more space being taken up by buckles, yet is a little more adjustable and symmetrical. Sporting 3 approx 1.25" slot D-rings on each side it gives great connection options to everywhere except the central sides. It changes the look a little, but one can rotate the belt 90 degrees to then shift priority to D-rings being on the sides. Notably the taper in the design adds to this consideration as when worn normally it makes leaning to the sides a little easier while leaning forward and back is easier if rotated. 

Like all Top To Bottom Leathers products, all the details are great on this belt design. The overall thickness is great balance of feeling substantial, but with some flexibility to aid in comfort. The strap edges are super clean, the main platform edges are leather wrapped and even the interior is covered in soft leather so don't have to worry about any metal parts contact. As usual quality hardware is also utilized; for a small personal preference note the design does come off a little rivet heavy which gives a bit of an 80s look in my view, however I think the middle rivets are replaced with stitching on larger waist sizes. On that note when ordering one gets to pick a specific waist size, the color of the platform trim, and buckle type so it feels quite custom-like.

As I was saying the belt design isn't necessarily ground breaking, however I felt the quality and size class stood out enough to make worthy to highlight. Not too slim and not too tall, with consistent quality construction throughout. For those who like the core features but want something a little different, Top To Bottom also offers a "heavyweight" belt using dual straps and a "large" belt option with even more shape contouring.
