I’m not really sure I get the purpose of these We-Vibe Bloom Kegel Balls if I’m completely honest. I don’t know if it is because I was expecting something completely different or they just don’t work for me.
Let’s go back a couple of steps though because they might be exactly what you want.
Like many of my other We-Vibe toys, the We-Vibe Bloom Kegel Balls arrives with a sachet of lube, a USB charger cable, instructions and firmly secured in foam to protect them from unwanted travel during shipping.
The We-Vibe Bloom Kegel Balls are designed to still give your kegels a workout but with a difference – these vibrate and have the option to change their weight as you progress through your training. They are designed to make kegel training more pleasurable but I do have a few issues with them.
The silicone used to make the Bloom is very soft but is quite draggy in use so you do need lashings of water-based lube before you insert them. The shape is quite comfortable to wear. The string acts as an aerial as well as a retrieval cord. The cord is quite strong and I don’t have any worries about it snapping under pressure. The middle of the Bloom is the part that can be unscrewed and add a difference weight as you see fit. The balls unscrew very easily but not to the point I’d worry about them becoming loose while in use. Here is where you also find the charging port of the Bloom, which is charged via the supplied USB cable.
I’ve written about my kegels in the past and thankfully months of exercise has helped and I certainly have my grip back better than it was. However, I am far from the kegel queen so I was hoping I’d have fun with these. I personally find they are far too light for me. Even the heaviest weight – 40g plus the 35g which the vibrating part weighs, still isn’t a work out for me. These are designed solely for a complete beginner in mind. You’ll also find a 10g and 30g weight too in the box – each of the weights is labelled 1, 2 and 3. 1 being the lightest and 3 the heaviest.
The Bloom does vibrate and the only real way of using this toy is via the We Connect app which can be downloaded via the play store or Apple store. I guess in this day and age, most folks have a smartphone but I’m sure not all do so you do need to keep in mind, the Bloom really isn’t much good from a vibrating perspective without being able to use the app. To power on/off you the toy, you need to press down on the domed intent which can be found on the side with the retrieval cord. In use, this is quite hard to do unless you slightly remove the Bloom and mix in lube and bodily fluids – it doesn’t make for a fun time.
The Bloom is easier controlled using the app and here you can connect a ‘Lover’, check how much battery is left in your toy and even create your own patterns. You can check out my other We-Vibe reviews to read more about how the app works. To connect the Bloom, you need to power on your Bluetooth on your smart device and hold the power button down for a couple of seconds until the toy vibrates twice to show a connection has been formed.
In my last We-Vibe review, I raved on about how impressed I was with the app update and unfortunately, in this review my feelings are the exact opposite.The Bloom kept disconnecting in use – I couldn’t power it off without reconnecting and then seconds later it would disconnect. My entire time using the Bloom it has never fully stayed fully connected. Which considering from a kegel point of view, it’s kinda pointless for me – I was hoping it would work from a vibrating side and I guess it does, just not as it should, in my opinion.
As this is a We-Vibe toy, of course, the Bloom is jam-packed with deep, rumbly vibrations however while these are felt holding them in your hand – they don’t transfer completely throughout the toy. They do sound loud in use even while inserted so I wouldn’t consider them to be the most discreet toy.
I personally feel if you are after a decent pair of kegel balls, then I wouldn’t buy these. They don’t jiggle about like regular kegels balls do, the vibrations aren’t great while inserted, the app keeps disconnecting and they aren’t heavy enough for me.
The Bloom is 100% waterproof so can be cleaned however you want – I opt to wah them using some mild soap and warm water.
The We-Vibe Bloom was sent to me from We-Vibe in exchange for an honest and impartial review – this however in no way changes my opinion on the item. What I honestly think, you read! All images displayed of We-Vibe Bloom are taken by myself.
