I admit, I haven’t been good at remembering to do my kegels lately. When I do think about it, I do them. One reason I love kegel exercise toys is that they make me remember to do my kegels. I have only had one kegel toy from years ago, at least until the awesome people at Good Vibes sent me the We-Vibe Bloom free in exchange for my honest review.
Like all We-Vibe products, the Bloom comes with a satin drawstring pouch, USB charging cord, instruction booklet, a sample We-Vibe lube packet by Pjur, and the toy itself. The Bloom has three different weight attachments (10 g, 30 g, and 45 g), meant for gradual training of the kegel muscles.
The We-Vibe Bloom is waterproof and rechargeable. A full 90 minute charge can give up to 90 minutes of vibration. The Bloom features a low power light, meaning it will blink when it needs a charge, preventing (most) mid use deaths. The Bloom can connect via Blue Tooth to the We-Connect app. The Bloom is made of silicone, making it pthalate free. There is only one button, and it controls the power, speed, and settings. There are four speeds and 6 different vibration patterns. One of my favorite things about We-Vibe products is that if you turn the toy off at one setting, it turns back on on that same setting. I prefer this, as I tend to prefer only one setting on vibrators (steady and fast). It is easy to remove from inside with the help of the silicone retrieval cord. The weights are labeled as “1, 2, and 3,” making it easy to change weights.
The app is great in theory, however lately I have been having connection issues. The connection problems have been happening with more than this toy though, so I think it needs a few bugs fixed. I found that I had to keep my phone next to the toy to keep the two connected, making it really hard for controlling via app. When functioning properly, the app can let you (or partner) control your toy. The app can change vibration modes, speeds, and pause/start vibration. Users of the app can create their own vibration settings. The app also features a text, voice, and video chat function to make communication with your partner easier.
Overall, I loved this toy, if not for the buggy app. While using, it was a great reminder to do my kegel exercises. Once fully inserted, I was able to go about my day while using the toy. I was disappointed by the fact that I was unable to fully test out the vibration features with the app. Every time I got the Bloom inside the app would disconnect from it. I used each weight for a week each. I will definitely continue using the We-Vibe Bloom, and hope that the app gets updated soon. Thank you so much Good Vibes for the chance to try this awesome toy.
