LELO has been THE go-to brand for luxury sex toys for at least 4 years now. They constantly put out products that are innovative, beautiful, and most importantly, feel oh-so-amazing.
Naturally, I was elated to have the honor to receive and test their latest female sex toy – the LELO Ida Wave dual vibrator.
Without spoiling too much – this toy took me for a wild, surprising ride. How? Well, keep reading as I will give you an in-depth look at what this toy is all about. Of course, I will also be writing about my personal experiences with the IDA Wave. After all, what’s a sex toy review without a detailed overview of how I…erm…enjoy myself?
So, without further ado, here is my LELO IDA Wave review:
What is the LELO IDA Wave?
LELO IDA Wave is the latest app-connected dual vibrator from LELO, a company known for designing high-end sex toys both for men and women. Now, some of you newcomers (welcome to the club!) might be asking – what on earth is a dual vibrator? Allow me to explain.
In this context, a dual vibrator is a female sex toy that focuses on stimulating two spots at once – the G-spot and the clitoris. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? I mean, double the stimulation, double the pleasure. Right?
Unfortunately, things are not quite that simple. I do not want to be too harsh, which is why I will not name any names, but there are dual vibrators out there that are completely useless. Literally. If the design is off, you will simply not be able to hit the right points.
In addition, I have tried dual stimulators that have been too intense or too mild. Again, not good.
Back to the topic at hand, the LELO IDA Wave – you will not have to worry about this baby being too mild/intense or not fitting your body. On the surface, the IDA Wave looks like a simple (albeit beautiful!) toy, but LELO has really put in the effort to design something that EVERY woman can use.
These are some big words, but I sincerely believe that this is one of the few female sex toys that you can enjoy regardless of your previous experience with sex toys, your body type, or how you like to masturbate. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. In the next paragraph, we will look at the design and the main features of this dual vibrator and you will see exactly why I am so excited about this sex toy.
What’s in the box?
I suspect (and hope) that many women who order this toy will be first-timers to sex toys. Because of this, I want to point out that sex toy companies ship their products as plainly as possible. You will be shipped a boring brown box with no hints to what’s inside. You will not have to walk around the city carrying something that screams that you just bought a sex toy. 🙂
Now, once you are at the safe confines of your home and tear open your shipping box, things get a bit more luxurious and interesting. The IDA Wave sits inside a minimalistic, sleek box with an embossed golden LELO logo.
So, what will we find inside this cool box? Let’s see:
- The IDA Wave – The star of the show, packed neatly inside a satin storage pouch. For now, we will just say it looks beautiful and inviting. In the next part of this article, I will write more about how it looks (and feels!)
- A complimentary personal moisturizer – Lubes are awesome. Even if you technically do not “need” them, they should always still be staples in your bedroom. While the included package of LELO lube is small, it still feels like a sweet touch to get it as a small extra.
- An USB-charging cord – An important but not very interesting part of the package.
- A warranty registration card – I have many LELO toys, several of them more than 3 years old. All of them still work perfectly. Still, I suggest you register the IDA Wave just to be on the safe side. If something happens within a year of your purchase, you will get a replacement product.
- An instruction manual – Personally, I have a love and hate relationship with instruction manuals for sex toys. I appreciate them and understand why they are essential, but a big part of getting a new sex toy is going in blind and exploring all the features and how they play with your body. Especially when it comes to high-end toys like the IDA Wave. Still, for women completely new to sex toys, manuals are important. This one is very detailed and well-written, so rest assured that you will know how to play with this toy.
This is it. Looks like we have successfully unpacked this babe. Let’s see what exactly this toy is all about.
The design and the key features of the LELO IDA Wave
If you have been reading this blog for a while then you already know that I am a complete freak for beautiful sex toys. 90% of the time, the toys from LELO fit this criterion, so I was not surprised to see that the IDA wave is a beauty indeed. From the minimal yet luxurious packaging to the feel of the extra-soft silicone…everything about this product just screams sensuality.
As I already mentioned, the design of the IDA Wave is not just worth a mention for aesthetic reasons. You see, the brand of LELO is on a mission to bring screaming orgasms to every woman out there. They carefully analyzed the feedback that they received from women who use and have used LELO products. They then used this massive pool of feedback to create this unique knee-shaped vibe that plays very well with the female anatomy. Every vulva is unique, but the IDA Wave will fit like a glove!
The design of IDA Wave is obviously the first thing that catches your eye, but there are other noteworthy features to this toy. Let’s dive in:
• WaveMotion 2.0 Technology – WaveMotion technology? Sounds all fancy, but the key idea behind it is actually quite simple – to mimic finger-like motions. Many men and women know how well the “come hither” motion can work inside you if performed by someone good with their hands. The LELO Ida Wave is inspired by the same movement, but with an added twist.
You see, the clit stimulating part also vibrates. And, you better believe that some of this vibration carries over to the tail part of the IDA Wave. The result? Dual stimulation that feels entirely new. Even for someone who has tested a very generous number of female sex toys over the years.
• Hands-off control via the LELO app – App-controlled vibrators have been around for a while now, so nothing completely new here. However, I find that the LELO app is better to use than most of its alternatives. For one, the app feels very intuitive to use – I hate to admit it, but I get frustrated very easily. When I am in the mood for some solo action, I want to go right at it without spending time messing around with messily designed interfaces. The LELO app is not messy – in fact, it took me less than a minute to understand how to operate my IDA Wave.
My personal experience with the IDA Wave
When it comes to testing new sex toys, I always want to get the full experience. For this, I usually wait until I am in the mood before breaking out a new toy.
This is exactly what I did with the LELO Ida Wave. This baby sat in my closet for a good two weeks before I felt a sudden surge to get it on with myself. The reason? I was wearing a pair of my favorite leggings and happened to glimpse myself in the mirror…that ass was looking fabulous. I am not bragging, but I sincerely loved how my ass looked in those leggings. I loved it so much that I actually got considerably horny. I was also home, so this was the ideal time to give the IDA Wave the first try.
Now, when it comes to high-end sex toys like the IDA Wave, I go all the way – I start with what I like to call “self-foreplay.” I get into the mood by slowly watching something raunchy and caressing my inner thighs and breasts. I do this for a while and let my excitement build up. Once I am seriously ready for my key areas to get some action, I break out a toy – in this case, the LELO IDA Wave.
First impressions? When they say this thing is precisely sculpted for the body of a woman, they really mean it. The IDA Wave feels like it is tailor-made for my vagina. I mean, I know this sounds weird, but you will understand what I am talking about when you try it. Even some very good G-spot stimulators can feel intrusive upon first penetration, but this one slid into me like a knife through butter.
I went for a slower vibration at the start…and oh boy. Yet again, you immediately feel how body-friendly this toy is. This stimulation feels so gentle yet intense at the same time. As any woman will tell you, G-spot stimulation is not easy to get right. An accidental wrong move can derail the whole experience immediately. No wrong moves with this toy though. The rotating tail hit all the right spots without ever feeling overbearing.
Now, add the clit stimulation to the mix and you have quite the winning combination.
I had planned to try out many pattern variations, but I had to settle with one of the default “pleasure settings” because…well, let’s just say that I had too much fun to pay any attention to messing around with the app.
Oh, another thing worth mentioning – I tend to move a lot when I am getting close to a climax. I grab things, move my legs…I squirm around A LOT. During the entire time, the IDA Wave stayed inside me. Yet another example of how well-fitted this thing is for the female body.
This is also one of those products that I would gladly recommend to women completely new to sex toys.
Words like “dual stimulation” and “WaveMotion Technology” may seem intimidating to sex toy newbies, but in reality, this toy is as beginner-friendly as it gets. Here, you will get an opportunity to truly indulge in your body and really find out exactly what you like – this toy is about YOU and YOUR body.
A quick round-up of the pros and cons of LELO IDA Wave
I put together a quick list of the main advantages and disadvantages of this toy. So, feel free to use the following as a quick guide to what I like and dislike about the IDA Wave.
The shape of this toy
As already mentioned, the IDA Wave fits me like a glove. This is a smooooth ride right from the beginning to that glorious climax. Remember the hit song “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran? Yeah, this song should be used to market the IDA Wave.
“I’m in love with the shape of you.”
Suitable for beginners and sex toy fanatics alike
There are not many sex toys that would play well with both virgins and women who own tens of sex toys. The IDA Wave is one of the very, very few such toys. You can customize this thing to stimulate you exactly the way you want it to. First toy ever? Go super gentle and enjoy discovering your body. Twenty-second sex toy in your collection? Have fun feeling the ecstasy of dual stimulation done right.
As I already mentioned, when it comes to app-controlled sex toys, I want things to be easy. Nothing to kill a mood like a poorly designed app that takes half an hour to figure out. Well, LELO is in the clear with this one – everything feels super intuitive and you can concentrate on what your body wants instead of figuring out how to operate the little pleasure machine.
I love taking my toys to the bath. And I am pretty sure I am not alone. Considering how sophisticated the IDA Wave is, I was slightly surprised to see that this thing is 100% waterproof. Love it!
We are having a heatwave in Europe at the moment, so warm bath sessions are out of the question. Instead, I discovered a new, almost religious experience – an orgasm in an ice bath. Yup, just take this toy to an icy-cold bath and you will see exactly what I am talking about.
I mean, talking about apps, shapes, and other technical details is fun and all, but the ultimate success or failure comes of a sex toy comes down to how the toy feels. Well, the IDA Wave feels
Well, this beautiful toy feels f*cking good. It is the only female sex toy I have used this spring-summer period. And coming from someone who has A LOT of sex toys, this is a very, very big compliment.
None. Seriously, I have nothing to complain about when it comes to this toy. We will see how it holds up in the years to come, but as of now, I have literally nothing negative to write about.
Final verdict – is the LELO IDA Wave worth the purchase?
Absolutely. At first glance, this is a simple yet beautiful toy, but oh how much there is to discover beneath the surface!
From the design to how many different operating choices it offers – this is a pure, unadulterated celebration of the sexuality of ALL women.
Only one question remains. Where does LELO go from here? Is it the pinnacle of their female toys? We can’t wait to find out.
