This is a "Hand Cuff" (and it's a top seller, too)

This is a "Faux Nose Ring"

 

 

With the exception of the nose ring, I'm kinda loving the rest!

I wonder how that leg cuff stays on?

Probably Gorilla Glue!  On my thigh it wouldn't need anything.  I have such chunky ankles (cankles) that I can't even wear an ankle bracelet.

 

I guess I won't be wearing the latest or greatest.  Thanks for the heads up!

@depglass

 

I have no idea.

 

I'm wondering how you do anything practical with this kind of "hand" cuff!

I've seen some similar leg jewelry that had an elastic band  sort of like a garter that's higher on the leg beneath the clothes.  The jewelry hangs from the hidden band.

I wonder how long it would take me to put on/take off that body chain. 😜 Surely, there's an easy way.

The thigh "bracelet" made me laugh but only at myself. My thighs wisely stopped making public appearances years ago, joining my upper arms in retiring from world view (unless I'm taking my daily swim in the lake). In any case, I am old enough and wise enough to see that girls wearing crotch-high shorts may have been the look for a long time now but is not a good idea.

All fine for the younger crowd. The leg cuff is still a bit weird. Perhaps with a short dressy jumper??  I like the body chain lol. And I hate nose rings!
