The hype around vibrating panties is a naughty night on the town while your partner tries to make you moan in inappropriate places. Sadly, many of them just don’t live up to everyone’s expectations.

 

In this guide, we’ll look at

 

  • What to look for when buying
  • Cleaning and Care

  • DIY Vibrating Panties

 

 

WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING


 

First, understand that these are special sex toys with a special set of rules, problems, and benefits. You’ll also find that they fall into three categories: PANTIES, THONGS, or WEARABLES

 

 

1. PANTY VIBRATORS

 

Black lace panties with remote controlled vibratorMost products will be some form of underwear (usually lace, but other fabrics are possible) with a special pocket for a bullet vibrator to rest in so it can pleasure the clitoral area.

 

  • Beware of “one-size-fits-all” promises because, as we all know, something can “fit” everyone but that fit isn’t always good.

 

  • Check to see how much of stretch they have – too cutting or too loose won’t be fun to wear. Or if there are “ties” at the side (which is the best option if you’re not sure).

 

  • Panties are the #1 choice if you want to wear a skirt during your escapades because they stay up better.

 

  • If the pocket allows, you can exchange for a better bullet vibrator from another company.

 

 

2. THONG / C-STRING VIBRATORS

  • The fit is more inclusive for a wider range of users

 

  • They don’t stay in place as well as panties and better to pair with trousers or pantyhose (if you’re going to wear a skirt).

 

  • Can be uncomfortable for some wearers if they’re not used to G-string underwear.

 

  • The motor is part of the “thong” and often comes with two vibration points. If the motor isn’t strong enough, there’s nothing you can do.

 

  • If the fabric isn’t removable, you can’t clean the toy

 

 

3. HIP STRAP VIBRATORS      

 

Butterfly strap-on remote controlled panty vibratorThese are on the outskirts of vibrating panties – A hybrid that leans more towards pure sex toy, but still close enough that I’ll include it. Rather than a fabric or plastic form to hold things in place, it might have hip straps.

 

  • If you want to wear something secure to wear under a skirt (without pantyhose) the plastic hip/waist straps will keep things in place.

 

  • If aesthetics are important to you, the straps don’t look as elegant or sexy.

 

  • Not many (if any) high-quality options out there – many, cheap Amazon ones though.

 

  • Most designs have a vaginal insert part (pro or con depends on you).

 

  • Nigh impossible to find a great quality one

 

 

NOTE: I don’t count “wearable” sex toys in this category (things like Lovense Lush or WeVibe Jive). They focus mostly on insertion and involve no panties.

 

 

When you know what kind you prefer, then you can move on to the next steps…

 

 

BUDGET – As I mentioned before, there aren’t that many high-quality options out there, so do your research to make sure the material is body safe (like silicone or ABS plastic).

 

REMOTE – Some have one, some don’t. Try to get one WITH a remote. Trust me, you’ll thank me later if the toy starts acting weird and you have no place to pull down your pants and turn it off.

 

RETURN POLICIES – While the toy might have one warranty, the remote might have a different one (like 1 year for the toy, but two weeks for the remote). Check with the seller to see that the return policies are.

 

MOTOR – Understand that the smaller the device, the weaker the motor will be. Yes, the price will have an effect, but most toys that take AA or AAA batteries aren’t going to blow your socks off – it’s just the limitation of the available and affordable tech.

 

Also, the bigger the motor, the bigger device, and the more uncomfortable it is to wear it.

 

 

CLEANING AND CARE


 

These are special because most have some kind of fabric you’ll need to clean.

 

However, the basic hygiene rules still apply…

 

 

  • The panties only need to be washed after you wear them. But the vibrator needs to be wiped down before and after you use it.

 

  • Take out any batteries when not in use – otherwise, you’ll drain them and possibly destroy the battery housing (if there are any leaks).

 

  • Most components aren’t waterproof, so don’t submerge anything.

 

  • Store in a clean bag in a dry place.

 

 

REMEMBER: If it looks cheap, it probably is, and will probably not last that long.

VIBRATING PANTIES REVIEW


 

 

“WHITE LABEL” VIBRATING PANTIES

 

White label vibrating panties in pinkThey are the scourge of this sex toy category.

 

There is no brand name or company behind this product – just a manufacturer (most likely in China) that churns them out on a factory line as cheap as possible and then sells them in bulk to others, who, in turn, slap their own name/label on it then resell it in sex store or online.

 

This is a “white label”. There’s nothing wrong with it – it happens in other products all the time. However, it’s not something you want in a sex toy. Examples: LeLuv, Sex-Zone, Baile, Oceantree, etc. 
 

Not to mention they’re bulky and don’t always hit the right spot … and the motor is weak … and loud.

 

 

OhMiBod CLUB VIBE 2.Oh

 

OhMiBod Clube Vibe with remote controlMany cam models use these toys and they make it seem very powerful.

 

I was super excited to get this thing. It arrived... battery was dead. WTF? Why the hell does at $70 vibrator come with batteries and why are they dead?!

 

So, I had to wait a few more days... and it was not worth the wait.

 

I turned it on and held it in my hand- straight to the highest setting... barely felt anything. The motor was weak, buzzy, and LOUD. Not to mention uncomfortable and bulky. Even the “club” setting didn’t sync to the music properly.

 

Failed orgasms all around – according to MANY other users. Clearly, the models were faking it.

 

 

OhMiBod BLUEMOTION NEX1

 

OhMiBod Bluemotion Nex1 with blue laces pantiesI’m sometimes willing to give toys a second chance (especially if they’ve come out with a second generation).

 

So, after watching a few videos about the BlueMotion, I was willing to give it another go – hoping they had learned from their mistakes and made a better product that was worthy of the insane price tag.

 

Nope.

 

Still disappointing. Basically, it’s the Club Vibe with a poorly designed app.

 

 

LOCK-N-PLAY REMOTE PANTY VIBE

 

Lock-n-play magnent clip remote panty vibratorWhat we have here is a great idea. The side flaps are magnetic, which means you can change any underwear (that has a thin crotch section) with this toy – not to mention adjust the vibrator bump to wherever your sweet spot is.

 

Sadly, users have mentioned that the magnets aren’t as strong as they could/should be, the motor is anything but quiet, and the remote doesn’t have the best range. Also, upon further research, I found an identical model from a different company.

 

So, white-brand alert. It’s also 70+ dollars. And one has an “app” that I have zero idea if it’s any good.

 

Recommended? I really want to, but the price tag makes me say no. On a good sale? Sure!

 

 

FETISH FANTASY VIBRATING PANTY

 

Fetish Fantasy Vibrating panties in black with remote controlPipedream is a huge company that has been around quite awhile, so I had to try out their version.

 

The design is quite different than the others. Instead of an external vibrator, the panties come with a built-in, bumpy “nub” that you insert. And, inside that nub is where you fit the bullet vibrator.

 

Since it’s an internal toy, the noise levels are lower, which is good. However, the vibes were a bit weak and the plug itself is made from rubber (which might or might not be body safe and is definitely porous).

 

Thankfully, it’s one of the cheaper options, so nothing lost there. There are also several similar panties, like Love Rider Self Pleasurizer Boyshorts. Go ahead and them.

 

 

ASTREA REMOTE VIBRATING PANTY

 

Astrea remote vibrating panty i black laceDid you ever watch the movie “The Ugly Truth”? There’s the famous scene where the main character is wearing pantie vibes an the remote ends up lost in a restaurant. Well, these are those panties.

 

Buyer beware though, the panties are SMALL – reviews say that even a size 5-7 might not be able to fit into them.

 

There is only an on/off button with no power levels, so if it doesn’t rock your world, you’re stuck with a one-trick pony. The price tag can be on the affordable side, so they might be better if you’re on a budget or just want to play around.

 

 

MY BODY BLOOMS - FIFTY SHADES

 

You can’t walk five feet in the sex toy world without tripping over a Fifty Shades of Grey product.

 

My Body Blooms - Fifty Shades of Grey panty vibrator in dark purpleHowever, as much as I dislike like the movies or books, their sex toys (from my limited experience and user reviews) seem to be okay. Not utterly fantastic, but not terrible like some competing products.

 

The problem is, the set is over $100 from a line that hasn’t been tried/tested very much. There wasn’t much to go on, but I’m assuming it will suffer from similar problems as other similar vibes – short range control with remote etc.

 

If this one peaks your interest, I would suggest going to a sex shop that carries it and looking at it in person.

 

 

FIXSATION VIBRATING PANTY

 

 

Fixsation Vibrating Panty unboxed with black lace garter and silk bag holderA different design than most panties, so it immediately caught my eye – more of a garter belt with elastics that hold the vibe in place. Miss Ruby Reviews did a great overview of this one.

 

The gist of her article is that the vibe is around a 4/10 for strength, not quite enough to get to orgasm but pleasant if you like broad-targeting, buzzy sensations rather than rumbly. The entire thing sat snug enough against the body with nothing migrating out of place. There was, however, some hair pinching or pulling.

 

It’s water resistant, not waterproof and made from ABS plastic covered with a coating that isn’t silicone. There’s also no remote.

 

It might be better for at-home use during sex or fun times rather than public play.

 

 

HOT DATE BY LOVEHONEY

 

Hot Date by LoveHoeny brand, remote controlled vibrating panties in black lace and hot pink side tiesI like the splash of color with these – a nice alternative to the pure black. The side ribbons also make it easier to fit most users.  There weren’t that many complaints about the vibe motor or pleasure.

 

However, most of the dissatisfaction came from the odd sized battery and the short shelf life it has once you use it. That, and the vibe either slid around in the pocket or didn’t quite hit the right spot.

 

It has more positive comments that many other toys out there though.

 

 

THE BEST VIBRATING PANTIES?


 

With the options out there? I would just DIY it.

 

Seriously.

 

Shop for a high-quality bullet vibrator (remote preferable, just make sure it’s decent), find a pair of sexy panties you don’t mind altering (and that will keep things snug and pressed against your lady-bits), test where you want the toy to sit, then sew a fabric pocket in the crotch.

 

You’ll have something you KNOW will fit, sit in the right place, and deliver the vibes you love.

 

 

QUICK RECAP


 

  • Not many great-quality options out there, so shop carefully
  • Make sure there is a remote control (easier to turn on/off)
  • Check remote control range – usually not far
  • Check what type of battery it takes
  • Check what panty sizes are available
  • Make sure it’s body safe
  • See if the vibrator is rumbly or buzzy
  • Check if the motor is loud or quiet
  • If all else fails, make your own
