Product Review: The Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap
It was only yesterday that I was lamenting the restricting elements of being a plus-sized woman in a world that, for the most part, seems to want to ignore the existence of larger individuals. Clothes shopping can often make a plus-sized person feel like they’re not meant to have nice things, and yesterday I basically had to make a U-turn upon entering a lingerie shop that was clearly, from first glance, not for me.
Thankfully some companies in the world of adult products are much more welcoming, and Sportsheets is one such company—with a whole range dedicated plus-sized women.
The range is admittedly small at the moment but it includes some lovely harnesses as well as the object of review for today—the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap. And, I have to say, this strap makes me incredibly happy that the adult product world gets me a lot more than the ‘normal’ world does.
The Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap
On the surface the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap may not seem like much. Essentially this product is a padded belt with adjustable straps, designed to enhance pleasure during the ‘doggie style’ position.
Never underestimate the power of a well-designed strap.
Position enablers can often get an underwhelming reaction, as people wonder if they couldn’t just replicate the product themselves with a DIY or makeshift version. However, I can honestly say that the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap is excellently designed for the job at hand—to the point where jury rigging something instead of just buying this strap would be doing yourself a disservice.
The padded belt of the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap is made of polyethylene foam covered in a soft polyester fabric which feels like a hybrid between fleece and felt. The handles are made from polyethylene webbing, with adjustable buckles made from ABS plastic. All of this is body-safe and makes for a very comfortable ride.
The material used for the Plus Size Doggie Strap makes it incredibly comfy.

The polyester fabric felt soft and comfy on the stomach (with help from the padding) while the polyethylene straps make the Plus Size Doggie Strap feel sturdy and gives a sense of security. Mr. Peaches found that gripping this strapping was incredibly easy and at no point did either of us feel like we were going to break the Plus Size Doggie Strap, despite my larger figure.
The measurements of the Plus Size Doggie Strap have also been adjusted to fit larger users. The Plus Size Doggie Strap has been made 7 inches longer and 1 ½ inches wider than the original Sportsheets Doggie Style Strap. In total this makes the padded section of the Plus Size Doggie Strap about 21 inches in length and 5 ½ inches in width. For me the Plus Size Doggie Strap fit perfectly into position, so I was thankful for this added length and girth.
With plus-sized users in mind, Sportsheets added a bit of bulk to this wonderful product.
Now, while I wouldn’t say that the Sporthsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap has ‘revolutionized our love life’ (or anything so similarly over exaggerated) I do feel like the Plus Size Doggie Strap adds a very enjoyable new element into our doggie style escapades.
The Plus Size Doggie Strap makes it so that my partner can easily and confidently get a grip on something during doggie style and, subsequently, can get much more ‘in the moment’. As such the Plus Size Doggie Strap allows us both to be more vigorous and daring while in this position.
Sportsheets claims that the Plus Size Doggie Strap compresses the vaginal canal to create tighter sensations and allows for deeper penetration. Both Mr. Peaches and I can agree with these assertions. For me using the strap made Mr. Peaches’ penis a lot more prominent and I could feel him getting increasingly deeper through his spirited thrusts. Meanwhile Mr. Peaches found that the strap allowed him the freedom to lean back further, which let the head of his penis rub strongly against my vaginal walls. This feeling is something that we both thoroughly enjoy and it’s not as easy to achieve without the Plus Size Doggie Strap.
Mr. Peaches also commented that he was happy that he didn’t have to grab onto my sides and could, instead, use the strap for leverage. While this has never bothered me Mr. Peaches has had worries about leaving marks in the past, so the Plus Size Doggie Strap helps eliminate this worry. Anyone who is conscious of their figure might also find this beneficial—as you don’t have to worry about your partner grabbing hold of areas that you personally find undesirable.
Any issues my partner and I have with the Plus Size Doggie Strap feel more like nit-picks rather than actual downsides. Like any fabric item, the Plus Size Doggie Strap can pick up lint, hair, etc. so the strap needs a bit of a dust off before and after use (esp. if you own a pet). There also aren’t any cleaning care instructions provided with the Plus Size Doggie Strap, which is a bit of a downer.
Maybe these straps would cause discomfort for some, but it’s a stretch.
One thing my partner and I did consider is that the polyethylene webbing might feel a bit uncomfortable or rub for some users, but we didn’t personally experience any problems with this.
Overall I adore the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap. It’s a product that has sincerely added something to our sex life—providing deeper, closer, and more intense penetration while doing doggie style. The dimensions of the Plus Size Doggie Strap seemed to fit my larger frame perfectly and made for a comfortable experience.
If you’re a larger individual looking to get deep down and ‘ruff during a doggie style session then I can’t recommend this product enough.
Plus sized people wanting to explore doggie style.
People who want a deep feeling during.
People who are self-conscious.
Do Not Recommend to:
People who dislike doggie style.
People who have sensitive hands (for the strap holder).
People who aren’t plus-sized (instead, check out the original Doggie Strap).

Congrats to Mistress Kay of My Kinky World for winning best BDSM in our Valentine's Fantasy Contest. Her three-way poolside pegging fantasy definitely left us hot and bothered!
Clang! I pull the name badge off from around my neck and drop it unceremoniously onto the glass-topped table next to my chair. Enjoying the weekend at a kink conference with two of my play partners had been a fantastic idea. Both my submissives, we had enjoyed some spanking and orgasm torture scenes the night before, and we were looking forward to today's activities of relaxation. The room's humidity told me that something besides the leather dress I was wearing might have been more conducive to relaxation, though.
This afternoon, the three of us are enjoying one of the amazing features of this conference: a hotel swimming pool with no clothes required and no rules in place. Various people are strewn throughout the deep water including a couple that's having sex on one of the sides of the pool. A bit adverse to messing up our make-up and hair so early in the day, my female submissive and I sit, clothed, in the poolside chairs while we watch my male submissive swim leisurely around the pool without a strip of clothing on his body.
Congrats to Cheyenne, who packed an amazing amount of Sportsheets products in her sexy entry to our Valentine's Fantasy Contest. Not surprisingly, she won the "Best Use of sex toys award. Enjoy!
My fantasy starts out at home. I'm getting ready to take a shower and I think I heard something in the other room. I go to check it out but nothing is there.
I take my clothes off and jump in the shower. I reach for my Vibrating Mesh Sponge to pleasure myself. I put my foot on my Single Locking Suction Foot Rest, then I begin to feel the power of my sponge. Just as I'm about to shower all over the shower I hear someone again in the other room. Babe is that you? I call out but no one answers. Now I'm starting to get nervous! All my senses are high. I hurry and finish my shower so I can find out what's going on.
Congrats to Elena, winner of the most romantic entry in our Valentine's Fantasy Contest!
Elena was just getting home… thinking to herself – Oh, another Valentine’s Day! Henry probably forgot… being so busy with getting his car detailed and buffed. Hmpt! I wouldn’t mind by buffed myself!
She entered her home and it was dark… She thought: Yep, Henry forgot about our dinner tonight… oh well! Then she stopped – Wait… what was that noise? Did someone break into the house… no… that’s music. Burglers don’t usually put on romantic music!
