Bikini Harness

The Bikini Chest Harness builds upon the Basic Chest Harness. You will observe the same basic structure with only a minor addition when weaving the rope between the breasts. Taking careful note of these kind of differences is how you grow in Shibari.

Shinju Chest Harness

This harness is quite similar to the Basic Chest Harness and the Bikini Chest Harness. Its main difference lies in that all sections are locked into place. This means that the ropes will not move when tension is applied, making this chest harness safe for suspensions.

Loop-Chain Chest Harness

This beautiful harness turns the chain-stitch technique on its head by focusing on the clean, horizontal lines across the chest and leaving the actual chain in the back.

Star Chest Harness

I always get a giddy feeling when I do something that is clearly against social norms. Wearing an inverted star clearly falls into this category. This tie provides a refreshing feeling of freedom from convention that will help rest your mind.

Half Diamond Chest Harness

This tie is the first of a three-tie series that builds upon itself to create ties of increasing complexity. This simple beginning is not without beauty, following the less-is-more minimalist philosophy that permeates so many Shibari ties.

The second tie in a three-tie series. This Diamond Chest Harness builds upon the Half-Diamond Chest Harness and completes the diamond. This addition has the benefit of providing support to the breasts.

Cross Chest Box Tie

Unlike the chest harnesses above that only tie the wrists behind the back, this one also ties the arms. By tying both wrists and arms, the wearer is further restrained and is able to feel more comfort and security when tied.

Gote Shibari - Mount Fuji Decoration

This tie is a celebration of history and tradition in Shibari. Mount Fuji is an iconic volcano in Japan with deep cultural and spiritual significance. It's important to remember where things come from so we can full embrace the present with gratitude.

Gote Shibari - Flower Weave

Start with a Gote Shibari, but instead of tying the rope twice around your partner's upper chest, go three times around. This will give you enough horizontal ropes to weave the rope through and create weaved flowers as a decorative twist to the simple chest harness.

Hexagon Chest Harness

This is not a commonly used chest harness but I find it contours the breasts nicely. Hope we make it a Shibari mainstream!

Hishi Chest Harnes

Recall that hishi means diamond in Japanese. A hishi chest harness literally means a diamond chest harness. The large diamonds in between the breasts make the namesake obvious.

Straight Jacket

Even if you are not insane you can wear a straitjacket. In this case, by bringing Shibari into the mix, it might even be fun...

Hishi Karada

Hishi means diamond in Japanese. Karada means full body. So basically, this is a full body(torso) diamond harness. The "Hishi" technique is widely used in many different ties. This is its most basic application, and a beautiful one.

Hishi Karada 2.0

Now that you know how to tie a Hishi Karada, try out this novel take on a traditional tie. It takes about 10 minutes to fully tie and requires you to be comfortable handling the ropes for best results.

Large Diamond Karada

This large-diamond version of the Hishi Karada curiously uses no knots to hold the ropes in place! This makes tying it an absolute joy of flow.

Lightning Harness

This harness is one of my favorites. You start out with placing a slip-knot around your partner's neck. I know this goes against all safety rules, but you will make it safe in no time. It's also different from other ties we have gone over because you do not start by folding the rope in half. All in all, it's a great way to shake things up.
