1. Seksme – 12 Pcs Deluxe Beginners’ Bondage Set

Seksme – The first and most expensive set on our list is the Seksme 12 Pcs Deluxe Beginners’ Bondage Set. One thing that I have to absolutely love about this set is that there are many features to help newbies get started. This is the only set we found on the market that came with video instructions of "Dos and Don’ts" for each item that introduce a few rules of beginners’ bondage - a total no brainer feature that should definitely come with all beginners' bondage sets.

Roleplay Scenarios
Additional to this, it also comes with many exclusive online roleplay scenarios providing endless ideas for instantly putting your new kits to use without the guesswork. But to find out more about how these will help you spice up your love life, visit their info page.

What’s Included
The set itself comes with a Luxury Storage Case, Luxury Padded Handcuffs, Ankle Cuffs, 2x10-meter Luxury Ropes, a Beautifully Crafted Flogger, a Hogtie Harness, a Luxury Face Contour Blindfold, a Stylish Soft Silicone Ball Gag, Sturdy Paddle, a Comfortable Stylish Collar, a Quality Chain Lead, and a host of various additional relationship enhancement features available online ​that comes included with your purchase.

On Quality
Every item contained in this set is of exceptional high quality, each one individually handcrafted from the best available materials. Some of the highlights of the kit are the Face Contour Blindfold that offer a true blackout experience with a convex design which exerts zero pressure on the eyes; the incredibly soft and comfortable cuffs, a soft ball gag, two beautiful silky textured ropes in different colors and an unbreakable steel chain used for the leash - and of course the additional online content.

​Available on Bomdage.net​.

Conclusion
Because these sets are handmade, they are difficult to obtain, so if you get your hands on one you can consider yourself one of the lucky ones.

​2. ​B​eing F​etish – ​​7 Pcs Couple Restraint Set

Being Fetish - The second set on our list is a lovely set from Being Fetish. This is a 7 piece couples restraints kit which offers a perfect entry level to beginners’ bondage.

What’s Included
This set includes a paddle, flogger, cuffs for ankles & wrists, a blindfold, a ball gag and a collar and chain. Additionally, although it doesn’t officially come with a storage box, if needed you can use its branded packaging that the items came supplied in to double up as a storage case. This is a sturdy, well-constructed product. The style and color may not be to everyone’s liking but most of the items are extremely well made. The collar and cuffs are also well stitched and have a soft foam where the material meets your skin.

On Quality
The flogger, paddle and blindfold are well made and are of equally decent quality, my only small complaint is with the ball gag. Because of its poor design it pinches the corners of your mouth as the ball can shift from side to side, but I found this to be the case with all ball gags made in this construction (i.e. strap and ball are not moulded in one piece). Also, the ball is made of hard plastic which tends to leave you with a jaw ache after a while, which makes it ​less than ideal for beginners. Other than that, this is a truly faultless set.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
If you want a quality entry level bondage set which should last you for years to come then the Being Fetish beginners’ bondage set is a good fit.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Quality construction
  • check
    Comfortable fit
  • check
    Can be stored in branded box

​Cons

  • Contains no instructions
  • Limited accessories
  • Uncomfortable ball gag
  • Collar and cuff foam not easily cleanable
  • Chain not built for strong pressure

3. Cuff Store – 10 Pcs Beginners' Bondage Kit

Cuff Store - The next set on our list is this great kit from Cuff Store, an elegant set with a style and color that is very appealing to the eye. The kit overall is of pretty good quality and also has a great price for the amount of items it comes with - you literally can't beat this price for the amount of gear you get.

What’s Included
This set includes a Collar, a Detachable Leash, a Ball Gag, a Pair of Nipple Clamps, a Pair of Heart Shaped Nipple Tassels, a Pair of Handcuffs, a Blindfold, a Flogger, a Feather Teaser and a Rope. The majority of items are nicely finished in a smooth and soft suede-like material, and it’s also worth mentioning that this is the only one of our reviewed sets that comes with a pair of nipple tassels providing a lovely novel touch. As mentioned, it also includes a set of nipple clamps that on first impressions you’d believe would clamp down on you pretty hard, however you will be pleased to know that the pressure is fully adjustable, with soft rubber on the clasping parts to avoid the feeling of direct metal on the skin.

On Quality

Only two small faults I found with this set were that the blindfold could have been much better, and that when wearing the ball gag, the suede-like material would leave wet stains - other than that this is overall a really nice set.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
A great quality all-round kit for those seeking a more mid-priced product to inject some new spice into the bedroom.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Great value for the price
  • check
    Nice assortment of items
  • check
    Makes a great beginners’ set

​Cons

  • Contains no instructions
  • Most items not easily cleanable
  • Issues with wet ball gag strap
  • Blindfold not very good
  • No storage accessory

4. Dalliance Adult – 4 Pcs Beginners' Bondage Set

Dalliance Adult - The next set on our review list is the Dalliance Adult 4 Pcs Beginners’ Bondage Set. This is a great set for those who would just like to get their feet wet without some of the more complex-looking accessories.

What’s Included
This set comes packaged in a small, nicely branded box which includes a pair of handcuffs, a feather tickler, a riding crop, a soft whip and a satin blindfold. Although it contains only four items, this set was far better quality than I had anticipated. The handcuffs were nicely styled and very comfortable, the flogger felt sturdy with a well-built and stylish design. At first I wasn’t sure about the satin blindfold, but it actually does a surprisingly good job of blocking out the light. The feather tickler is also made from real feathers which felt nice and soft to touch, and feels amazing on the skin, especially when blindfolded.

On Quality
The only tiny negative that I could find is that because the picture of the white box shown in the product image above was taken while angled on its side, on receipt of the item I expected this box to be much bigger, however because of the limited number of items that come in the set, the flatter, more rectangular box works just fine for storage purposes.

Available on Amazon.com. 

Conclusion
Overall this is a great set for anyone who would like to get started dabbling in some new saucy bedroom fun.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Nice quality items
  • check
    Stylish design
  • check
    Comes with a storage box

​Cons

  • White fur in cuffs may discolor over time
  • Contains no instructions
  • Limited number of accessories

5. CIRCYCO – 8 Pcs Bondage Restraints Kit

CIRCYCO – The next set we reviewed is the CIRCYCO 8 Pcs Bondage Restraints Kit. This is another nice quality set to get you started which comes with a decent number of accessories.

What’s Included
This stylish set includes a blindfold, a collar, a ball gag, a flogger, a chain leash, a hogtie and a pair of wrist and ankle cuffs. The leather on the items feels like it’s built to last. It's very thick, but feels soft and flexible with no rough edges and an incredibly soft "fur" lining. This makes the blindfold, cuffs and collar feel plush on the skin. The cuffs also have a good range of adjustment: on my petite wrists they tighten perfectly on the last hole. The collar also has enough holes to make it snug, and even if you’re of average build this would also work fine. But I would say that if you are a guy with a thicker neck, then this collar would probably not work so well.

On Quality

The only small qualms I have is that although quite comfortable, the blindfold sometimes slips up a bit allowing some vision, but this would probably be the case with all blindfolds of the same design. Also, the straps of the hogtie stretch a little under tension but not much. I also notice that the clasps seem to be a little weak, when stressed they started to bend which I presume will easily break under extreme pressure, but I did not test this to the limit.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
A great looking set for beginners that’s available in two colors, constructed in a quality that, as long as you’re not planning any hardcore activities, won’t disappoint.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Stylish design
  • check
    Fur feels nice on skin
  • check
    Made from soft materials

​Cons

  • Contains no instructions
  • Not easy to clean
  • Collar not suitable for larger necks
  • Leash chain and hogtie can break under force

6. GEBDSM – 7 Pcs Fetish Bondage Restraints

GEBDSM  Very similar to the set above is the GEBDSM 7 Pcs Fetish Bondage Restraints kit. This set's design is very similar to the previous kit and uses the exact same flogger design. However, there are some differences: this one has no hogtie included, it uses a different blindfold design and it also comes with four small padlocks used for the wrist and ankle cuffs.

What’s Included
All in all, this set comes with a set of hand and ankle cuffs, a collar, a chain leash, a silicone ball gag, a blindfold, a flogger and four small padlocks. The outer material used is also alike but not quite so soft, with the inner fur also being similar. On a positive note it does come with a silicone ball gag which are much more mouth friendly for beginners.

On Quality
On a slightly more negative note, although the blindfold does do a much better job of blocking out the light, sometimes if it's placed too low it can push a little hard on the bridge of the nose. Also because of its flat design, depending on its tightness, it exerts undue pressure on the eyelids making them a little uncomfortable when worn over longer periods, but apart from that this is a very decent kit.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
This kit would make an ideal starter kit for those couples that would like to experiment with some beginners’ bondage play.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Comes with a soft silicone ball gag
  • check
    Fur feels nice on skin

​Cons

  • Contains no instructions
  • Not easily cleanable
  • Collar not suitable for larger necks
  • Chain leash can break under force

7. Yiwa – 8 Pcs Beginners Leopard Print Restraints Set

Yiwa If it’s a little novelty you’re after you can take a look at the next 3 sets, starting with the Yiwa 8 Pcs Beginners Leopard Print Restraints Set. If you’re looking for something a little more decorative then this kit might be for you.

What’s Included
This kit comes with a hogtie, a blindfold, a ball gag, a collar and leash, a flogger, a pair of hand and ankle cuffs, a pair of nipple clamps and 5 padlocks for the cuffs and collar. Made of a more rigid PU leather it is fair to say that this set doesn’t feel as comfortable when worn, but as the cheapest of all the sets I reviewed, this is to be expected due to its price.

On Quality

A plus part is that the shackles for ankles and wrists fit well on both skinny wrists and ankles like mine, as well as bigger ankles and larger wrists like my partner’s. But now for the not so good parts, well, the collar is a little thick for a female neck, as when worn it's difficult to bend or tilt your head. The rigid blindfold also tends to ride up and needs to be readjusted continually; and the flogger feels cheaply made and lightweight, however it's not the worst, but again, this is no great surprise and is expected.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
Well, this sure isn't your 5-star leather bondage kit, but if it’s purely the novelty looks that you’re going for then this set may be a fit.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Fits both smaller and larger persons

​Cons

  • Contains no instructions
  • Rigid construction
  • Cheaply made
  • Not very comfortable to wear

8.VP Leather – ​7 Pcs Handmade Full Grain Leather Cuffs ​Collar ​& Leash Set

​VP Leather  The most expensive of the sets in our review is the VP Leather - Handmade Full Grain Leather Cuffs Collar & Leash Set. This is ​a truly lovely set ​more ​in line ​with what the pros ​are using, and if its real leather you are looking for then this kit might well be for you.

What’s Included
This set comes with a collar, one lead, two hand cuffs, two leg cuffs, two snap hook leather connectors, and one leather storage bag. ​

On Quality
​The ​Leather is pleasantly much softer than it looks, and is finished in a very high quality ​with a ​tidy black stitching design. The cuffs feel quite sturdy and actually feel very comfortable to wear. Lastly, even though the collar is quite wide, because it is made of a ​​deceivingly flexible leather material, your movement is surprisingly not so much restricted.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
​A small negative for me is that for the cost i would have ​​expected it to come with a few more additional accessories​, ​however its fair to say that this is the ​average price you should expect to pay for a pro leather set, and if its the smell of real leather that you’re really after then this set could be a fit for you.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • ​Comes with a leather storage bag
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Soft, durable ​leather
  • Easy to clean

​Cons

  • ​The ​most expensive of sets we reviewed
  • Contains no instructions
  • ​Minimum accessories included

9. RIMAO – 7 Pcs Silver Bondageromance Kit

RIMAO  The final novelty set we reviewed is the RIMAO 7 Pcs Silver Bondageromance Kit. If you were looking for something a little more modern, then you may like this choice. I must say that the photos don’t do the color of the set any justice as the silver coating actually looks really shiny and nice in real life.

What’s Included

With this set you will get a pair of wrist and ankle cuffs, two cuff separators, a collar, a chain leash, a hogtie, a ball gag, a flogger and a blindfold. All in all, it comes with just about all that you will need to inject some new spice into your love life. 

On Quality

The items are pleasantly far better than I expected and feels nice and comfortable to wear. Other than the usual before mentioned mouth pinching with this particular design of ball gags, there is nothing really bad to say about it.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
A nice-looking set that’s color won’t be to everyone’s taste but if you’re into silver, then you would be pleasantly happy with the look and quality of this set.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Easy to clean
  • check
    Good quality construction

​Cons

  • Contains no instructions
  • Color not for everyone

10. Bedmate – 10 Pcs Beginners' BDSM Bondage Set

Bedmate ​​ ​The last set in our review is the Bedmate – 10 Pcs Beginners’ BDSM Bondage Set. I specially added this one to the list because I wanted to make sure that you know what to look out for when choosing your kit. This is because there are many cheap quality and poorly constructed imports out there which, because of the use of clever product photography, can on first impression appear like a good value for money purchase.

What to look out for
This set from Bedmate is a prime example of what you should be looking out for when choosing your bedroom set. At first glance it will appear that this set comes with a little bit of everything, but it’s only when you get it home and you make a closer inspection you will realize that with even light usage, most of the items will likely fall apart in only days.

On Quality

In my review of this bondage set the main problems I discovered were that the flogger was much lighter than it appeared from the images, and its poor construction also made it easy for its strap to work itself loose, resulting in the whole flogger literally falling apart. The collar was also very wide and rigid, which severely restricted neck movement and also was unpleasant to wear. The feathers on the small tickler also easily worked themselves free, leaving tiny feathers everywhere. And lastly, the blindfold was by far the worst of all that I tested. It was crudely cut out of a stiff and rigid material that, as well as being very easy to see out of, also asserted lots of pressure on the eyes.

Available on Amazon.com.

Conclusion
A good way to spot these cheap imports is to look out for these particular crudely shaped blindfolds and eliminate these sets from your choice.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Can be very cheap to buy

​Cons

  • Too many to list

Popular online sex stores – The point of this buyers’ guide is to help you make the smartest choices when shopping for a beginners’ bondage set online, so we couldn’t end our guide without discussing buying from the most well-known online adult retailers. Now, before you decide to browse through these stores, here are some smart online shopping tips to keep you on the winning end when making your purchase.

What I found
From my research carried out on the top popular online sex stores, I found that because these stores are specializing in supplying a full range of sex products, and are not actually specialist in anything in particular, when it came to searching on them for a beginners’ bondage set, most stores either sold the items for the set individually, or in other cases, although being made of the same materials that I sourced in the reviews above, they supplied sets made up with less items but for much more money.

Hidden checkout costs
The second biggest problem I found with these online stores was that in most cases you did not know what the final cost would be until checkout due to your choice of delivery speed options.

Shop around
When shopping at these retailers you can use this review guide for a comparison to ensure that you are getting good value for money, or that you don’t end up falling for a cheaply made import.

Conclusion
When shopping online, don’t just buy from the first site you see. Make sure that you always shop around to ensure you’re getting the best value for money.

​Pro​​​​​s

  • check
    Sell other types of adult products

​Cons

  • Come with no instructions
  • Typically you need to put together your own set
