Our Verdict

4.6/5

The Lovense Lush 3 is the newest update to the Lush dynasty. While only slightly more stimulating than the previous version, I find the new antenna design makes the Lush 3 much more comfortable than the old Lush 2.

The Lush 3 delivers stronger G-spot stimulation than other wearable vibrators. And you can control the vibrations with your phone from anywhere in the world. My partner and I have enjoyed a lot of sneaky fun at restaurants and bars with the Lush 3 hidden away pressing its vibes into my G-spot. We’ve also found Lovense toys maintain much better connection with the app than other brands we’ve tried.

If you need clit stimulation the Lovense Ferri is a better choice (or they can be used together). But for strong G-spot vibrations for discreet public play or as you go about your day, I haven’t found a better toy than the Lush 3. And I’ve tried quite a few other egg vibrators!

The Lush dynasty launched 2021 by announcing their third-generation egg vibrator

I’m proud to have spent some time with the newest sister after some pretty swell times with her predecessor – the Lush 2 (review here). And I’m ready to talk about it.

Lush 3 Packaging

Here’s what I wanted to know and what I’ll answer in this Lovense Lush 3 review:

  • How strong are the Lush 3’s vibes?
  • What’s different about this new version?
  • Just how “discreet” is it?
  • What does the new curved antenna do for you?
  • Will it provide any sort of external stimulation?
  • Is it worth the extra price to splurge on the Lush 3 over the Lush 2?
  • How does the Lush 3 compare to other egg vibrators?

Lush 3 Vibrations

With a hands-free toy like the Lush 3, you can’t maneuver and direct the vibes like you can with a handheld vibrator. So good, strong vibrations are especially important for hands-free toys.

Now, to clarify – this remote controlled vibrator stimulates your G-spot. Not your clit. I like to make that real clear because before I bought my first Lush, I remember assuming it stimulates clitorally as well. 

Not so. The external arm is just an antenna and doesn’t vibrate. So if you don’t enjoy internal vibes without a lot of clit stimulation, the Lush won’t be a great toy for you. 

Lovense Lush 3 next to Lovense Ferri highlighting difference in stimulation

You may prefer clitoral vibrating panties like the Lovense Ferri. It’s my favorite wearable clit vibrator. And it’s a huge improvement over its main competitor, the We-Vibe Moxie.

But if you’re looking for wearable G-spot stimulation, the Lush 3 is one of the best. 

Lush 3 In Hand

Now let’s talk G-spot vibes. We have to consider the vibe FEEL and the vibe POWER. So let’s see what lady Lush 3 has to offer.

Lush 3 Vibration Power

The Lush 3 (and Lush 2) are two of the most powerful wearable vibrators I’ve tried. The only other wearable G-spot vibrator that compares is the VeDO Kiwi.

Vibration Power Chart - Lush 3 Rating Compared to Other Egg Vibrators - Graphic
The power scale is defined compared to all other wearable vibrators. The Lush and Kiwi are my strongest wearable vibes, so I rated them a 10. A wearable vibrator that scores a 5 feels half as strong as a wearable vibrator that scores a 10 

The Lush 3 is more powerful than other egg vibrators I tested as you can see in my graph above. And it’s stronger than my other wearable vibrators like the C-shaped We-Vibe Chorus

Lovense Lush 3 and VeDO Kiwi next to other wearable vibrators highlighting them as my most powerful wearable vibrators

The Lush 3 is also much stronger than the recently released Lovense Vulse thrusting egg vibrator. But while the Vulse's vibrations are weaker, its thrusting stimulation feels great. So the Vulse is also worth considering if you just want a toy to use in the bedroom. I compare the Lovense Vulse vs Lush 3 here.

While wearable vibrators like the Lush 3 are not going to replicate the overwhelming strength of wand vibrators like the Lovense Domi 2 – it’s right up there in the running with several other handheld G-spot vibrators I’ve used.

If you typically like toys with a lot of power, the Lush 3 is one of the best wearable vibrators for you to consider. Even if you’re worried about overstimulation, the Lush has a pretty wide range of power. So you’ll have some lower powers to play with if that’s more of your jam.

Lush 3 Rumbly or Buzzy

A toy can deliver deep rumbly vibes or more buzzy vibes. Which is better is largely a personal preference. 

I tend to appreciate both for their various abilities. 

I personally like more rumbly vibrations for G-spot stimulation. This is because the vibrations feel “bigger” and seem to mimic motion against my G-spot. Whereas buzzy vibrations feel less noticeable to me during internal use.

Buzzy vs Rumbly Vibrators Infographic

Rumbly vibes tend to sink deeper into your body. So they affect a wider area. If you listen to a rumbly toy, it sounds deeper than a buzzy one.

On the other hand, buzzy vibes are more surface-level. They’re good for local stimulation, but don’t travel as deep. I prefer my clitoral vibrators to have some amount of buzziness in them.

The Lush 3 is a pretty even mix between rumbly and buzzy. The lower levels are more rumbly, but start to get buzzier as the power increases. But it never becomes extremely buzzy like the Lovense Flexer.

Compared to other egg vibrators, only the We-Vibe Jive and VeDO Kiwi are more rumbly than the Lovense Lush 3. So if extreme rumbliness is important to you, they could be worth considering.

Egg Vibrators Ordered from Most Buzzy to Most Rumbly

But the We-Vibe Jive is less powerful and the VeDO Kiwi is only remote-controlled (not app controlled).

I think most people will enjoy the Lush 3’s mix of rumbliness and buzziness. And the superior app control and vibration strength will be worthwhile benefits of the Lush even if it’s not quite as rumbly as the Kiwi or Jive.

Bottom Line: Lush 3 Vibrations 

The Lush 3 is one of the strongest wearable vibrators you’ll find. And it’s a nice even mix between rumbly and buzzy too. If you need extremely rumbly vibrations, the VeDO Kiwi is a great alternative as long as you don’t mind a remote-controlled toy instead of app-controlled. 

But the Lovense Lush 3’s vibration power greatly outperforms its main app-controlled competitors - the We-Vibe Jive and OhMiBod Esca 2. (Not to mention Lovense’s app is better.)

If you’re looking for powerful G-spot vibes and a great user experience, the Lush 3 is an excellent toy!

If you need clitoral stimulation to enjoy the vibes, the Lovense Ferri would be better for you. It magnetically secures to your underwear to vibrate on your clit.

Lush 3 Sound Level – How Is It For Discreet Public Play?

Typically the more powerful the toy, the louder it is. So the fact that the Lush boasts such strong vibes, but is also considered “discreet” was one of those things I had to try for myself to believe. 

And while there are even quieter egg vibrators like the We-Vibe Jive or VeDO Kiwi, I found the Lush 3 is pretty dang quiet. It’s discreet enough for public play in most settings. 

It's also much quieter than the new Lovense Vulse thrusting egg, so the Lush 3 is a better choice if you want to play outside the bedroom.

Since egg vibrators are also worn internally your body helps dampen the sound too. So the Lush 3 is also quieter than external vibrators like the Lovense Ferri.

Now let’s get into some specifics on how I tested sound levels. 

First, I measured all of my egg vibrators decibel levels while wearing them. The Lush started at 40 dB on the lowest power, and went up to about 47 dB.

Decibel Reading Chart - Lush 3 Noise Rating Compared to Other Egg Vibrators - Graphic

Looking at those numbers, it is a touch higher than others. But let’s get into the important details - where can you actually wear these discreetly?

For this, I wanted uber-accurate sound measures, so I brought along a pal (my partner actually… so far none of my friends have volunteered to be my sex-toy sound gauge). 

Here’s a few scenarios we tested:

Lush 3 Sound Level In The Car

Age-old proverbs tell us that “getting there is half the fun.” And I would say it’s very likely that this was written about sex toys. Who doesn’t love a little on-the-way foreplay? 

I like to buzz around while I’m in the car on the way to various sexy destinations. To be clear – I’m in the passenger’s seat while my partner’s driving. No texting (or vibe-controlling) while driving.

Lovense Remote app pulled up in car

With the Lush 3, I’ve found that just the sound of the engine and the road is enough to drown out the sound. No need for music even as long as we were moving! Stopped at a light, it’d become audible. But neither my partner nor I could detect any sounds from the Lush 3 while driving together in our music-less car.

So the car test – 100% IN THE CLEAR. 

Lush 3 Sound Level in Quiet Restaurants

Here it is – the big kahuna of wearable vibe sound questions: Can you wear it in a restaurant? 

I always start out cautious when I wear a sex toy in a public place. So I always control the toy myself in the beginning. So that’s how it went with the Lush 3.

Lovense Lush and app showing a low power level

We took this toy out to a quiet restaurant with wooden chairs. I always like to mention seat type because I feel like it matters. Wood seems pretty echo-y to me, so testing on wood feels like it heightens my sound-detection accuracy.

Low levels with the Lush 3 gave no hint of a sound to me or my partner. Gradual increases didn’t register anything in my ears, and I confirmed with my partner. Even at the very top levels – both continuous vibrations and patterns – we couldn’t hear the Lush 3 at all.

I made sure to strip down to the minimum acceptable layers of clothing for extra certainty that I wasn’t getting extra help from puffy noise-dampening coats either.

Quiet Restaurant Test – 100% IN THE CLEAR!

Lush 3 Sound Level At Home

The most daring location of all wearable vibrators is in a silent house, on a couch next to a pal. I have yet to find a toy that will be unheard in such a situation. Results differ a bit if there’s more or less ambient sound. But here are my findings:

In a silent house:

  • Seated next to my partner on a couch, they could both hear and feel the vibrations.
  • Sitting in different chairs 5 feet apart - they could still hear the Lush 3.
  • Finally sitting in a chair 10 feet away from me in our silent house - yup, they still heard it.

Next, we wanted to see if the Lush 3 would be inaudible if we turned on some light music. So we put on some tunes and tested again:

  • Next to my partner on a couch, they could not hear, even on the highest power level. But they could still feel it.
  • Different chairs, 5 feet away, they could not hear anything on the highest level.
  • Different chairs 10 feet away, still nothing!

I’ve also had people ask if they’ll be able to use the toy with a roommate next door. From my experience, a closed-door keeps the vibes all to yourself! No noise from the other side of the door.

Just a quick note on Lush 3 sound levels outside your body. If you turn the toy on before it’s safely nestled by its pal, your G-spot – you may just be scared away from wearing this toy out.

It honestly sounds so loud when it’s sitting out in the cold, fresh air. But human bodies and even small amounts of ambient noise around you are so great at muffling noise. 

Body muffles sound of the Lush 3

I’ve found most public settings work wonders at silencing Lady Lush between my legs.

Bottom Line: Lush 3 Noise 

The Lush 3 will not be heard in most places with a small amount of ambient noise. If you’re in a dead silent room – I’d recommend keeping this toy off. But once you’re in an environment with even a little background noise, you can start to play with your Lush 3 more freely. 

I’m able to use the Lush 3’s highest power levels in coffee shops, restaurants, and bars without issue. 

Lush 3 App Quality: Close Range Control

Lovense Lush 3 video demo

The Lovense Remote app used to control the Lush offers the most customizable control of any app-controlled vibrator brand. You can see how I rate the Lush’s app features compared to other egg vibrators below.

App Control Close Range Features Chart - Lush 3 Rating Compared to Other Egg Vibrators - Graphic

The Lovense app is simply more versatile, provides more helpful visuals, is more intuitive, and most importantly - it’s more reliable than others I’ve tested and used. 

Now here’s a little glimpse at what your experience will be like. Starting with the main control screen:

Updated Lovense Remote App Homescreen Screenshot

First is the main Remote feature, which gives you the ability to easily customize your experience completely in the moment. You pull the little pink dot up and down to increase or decrease power. 

Loop and Float on the Lovense Lush Screens

Click “Loop” and move the dot around to instantly create a repeating pattern. Or hit “Float” which lets you set a constant vibration power.

This function is one of my favorites. It provides easy, instant pattern creation better than any other app. You can feel the vibrations as you’re creating them. And you can see them. So if your partner is designing the pattern for you, they have a good idea of what you’re feeling.

Pattern creation in other apps like We-Vibe and OhMiBod’s is much clunkier and more difficult to use.

Screenshots comparing pattern creation in OhMiBod, We-Vibe, and Lovense apps

“My Patterns” provides preset patterns for you to select if you don’t want to create your own. It is also where you’ll store any of your favorite custom patterns that you make or come across! To make your own and save it for future use, you’ll just click the “Create Your Own” option and design it on the touch panel.

Lush 3 Pattern Options

Oh, and in case you missed it, I mentioned some patterns you might “come across” – there are some AWESOME patterns that other people have made and shared for you to use. 

I have found some of my favorites this way. You can see how many other people have saved that pattern so you can easily find the most popular patterns.

You can find these by navigating to the Discover Mode and heading to “Patterns.” Test through the ENDLESS creations here and then tap “download” to save your favorites to “My Patterns”

Using Lovense Discover Mode to Find Othe User's Patterns

The option to explore other people’s patterns and save them is a huge asset and helps set the Lovense app apart from others in my opinion. It’s just so easy to find something you enjoy with such a broad range of vibration patterns to explore. I’m ALL for letting someone else do the work for me.

Another feature of the app is “Music” control. This one lets you pick a song that you have saved on your phone or through one of your music streaming apps. It responds to the beats and sound changes of the song you’re playing. 

Lovense Lush Music Control Screens

One neat thing is that you can actually choose a song, turn the volume all the way down, and the vibes will keep going! I like to do this when I want an always changing and unpredictable vibration pattern.

The sort of “opposite” of this Music option is the Sound feature. This feature vibrates your Lush 3 from the sounds around you picked up by your phone’s mic. So it’s ideal for a club or other place with lots of changing sounds.

Lush 3 Sound Sensitivity

You can also increase the sensitivity of your toy to the sounds in your environment. 

AND last but not least – (well… actually I think it IS the least) the ALARM feature. Honestly, I’ve only tested this out once so I could mention it. It’s not my preferred way to play, but it could be your new favorite way to wake up.

Screenshot of using the Alarm Feature in Lovense Remote app

Set your time and days of the week just like any other phone alarm, and wake up happy.

Bottom Line: App Quality in Close Range Bluetooth Control

There are A LOT of control options for the Lush 3 and they’re all pretty intuitive. I’d say you’re very likely to find at least something you like. Lovense offers more complete control of your vibrator than any other app-controlled brand. My husband and I have had a lot of fun easily creating vibes and controlling each other’s Lovense toys from near and far.

Long Distance App Quality

Alright, we’ve talked about all the ways to control the Lush 3 in Close Range Bluetooth mode, but let’s chat long-distance! 

So actually, most of the same features and control options are available to you and your partner when you’re in long-distance mode. And you can video chat directly in the Lovense app while you play!

Note: I had the Lovense Ambi connected here, but the screen is the exact same for the Lush 3

Compared to my others, Lovense provides the most intuitive and feature-rich long-distance experience.

App Control Long Distance Features Chart - Lush 3 Rating Compared to Other Egg Vibrators - Graphic

To connect with a new partner, you can either select “Add People” or you can accept someone else’s request. Then the next time you play, just reach out from your saved list of people. This can be for long-term partners, or just someone you want to have in your available connections for multiple chats. 

Lush 3 Add Partner

There’s also an option to get a “Control Link” to share. This option allows you to enjoy anonymous, one-time sharing for some sneaky fun online - it keeps your account name a secret. A lot of cam models also use this feature for one-off sessions. 

You simply send the partner your control link and they can only control your toy for as long as you select – once the time is up, it’ll just disconnect you two! The link you generate will be new every time.

Screenshots showing how to generate an anonymous control link in the Lovense remote app

Once your partner has successfully connected to you, and whenever they have their app opened, you’ll have lots of different chat features available. Click on their account and then select the little “+” button in the lower right corner to view them all.

Here’s a visual of everything you can do, but let’s cover some of the main ones.

Lovense Long Distance Options

Text and send voice-memos like you would on a normal phone, or even send some teasy pics. For more live interaction, you can voice call or video-chat while you control each other’s toy. You can also send a pre-made pattern to your partner. 

Then, there’s the main event – giving live control of your toy.

Giving live control will send your partner an invite that they’ll need to accept. And vice-versa if your partner is the one to send a request to take control of your toy.

Lovense Waiting Screen

Once you’ve given your partner control of your toy, you won’t have any control abilities of your own unless you end their control. If you’re using Live Control without video chat, your partner’s screen will look like this:

Loop and Float on the Lovense Lush Screens

They’ll have the full Remote screen available to them with the Loop and Float functions. So your partner can easily create looping patterns for your Lush 3 or set its power to a constant level.

Your partner can also send you predesigned patterns that they’ve got saved. They’ll have to exit live control mode first. At first you’ll still have to accept the patterns they send you. But you can change your settings to automatically accept vibrations sent from that partner.

Lovense Accept a Pattern

Lovense’s app is the only one I’ve found that allows you to update a partner’s settings so you don’t need to accept their request every time. So they can surprise you throughout the day by sending you patterns or even taking full control of your Lush 3. 

If you’re video chatting the control panel will overlay on top of the video. You can minimize it so the video chat is clean if you prefer. The little square with arrows will shrink or expand the video screen too if you want to play around in the app more.

Screenshots showing how you can maximize or minimize the control panel during a Lovense Video Chat

You have all sorts of camera options too – front face or reverse the camera view. Feel free to turn off your camera, mic, or both at any point during the call. The toy owner also has a built-in screen-record feature, while the other partner does NOT (unless they are using another sort of screen-recording app).

If you miss each other and are not online at the same time, you can still send chat messages, pics, or voice memos.

Message in Lovense App Screenshot

Bottom Line: Long Distance Control

There are some great ways to connect on this app. Video and chat features are all very easy. The live control-sharing can take a little bit to figure out, just since there are so many options – but once you’ve played a bit, it’s quite easy. 

The Lush 3 is a great fit for someone looking for very customized control options. Lovense’s app offers a better long-distance experience than any other I’ve used.

Lush 3 Connectivity

One of the things that has made me an enthusiastic return customer with Lovense toys is the connectivity. We’ve found Lovense toys to be the best brand at connecting easily and maintaining a reliable connection. 

Lush 3 Connectivity Rating Chart compared to other egg vibrators - graphic

This is really important to me because disrupting the stimulation and having to reconnect toys is one of the most frustrating things to me. 

We’ve found the Lush maintains a more reliable connection with the app than its competitors - the We-Vibe Jive, OhMiBod Esca 2, and Svakom Ella.

It’s also incredibly fast and easy to pair.

For those who want a little across-the-room action, I run another test. I take all my toys outside with my partner and measure several times to see how far we can separate the app or remote from the toy before they disconnect. 

On average, the Lush 3 maintained a reliable Bluetooth connection up to 130 feet away from the front, which exceeded Lush’s promise. I did find that it didn’t seem very reliable after 20 feet from behind though, which falls a little short of Lovense’s promise.

Connectivity Distance in Feet Chart - Lush 3 Rating Compared to Other Egg Vibrators - Graphic

I did notice that the pattern seems to stutter or differ slightly once you lock your phone though. When you re-open your screen, it immediately goes back to normal. But for some reason, locking seems to just throw it a little off. 

As for LONG DISTANCE, I’ve also never had any issues with disconnections or glitches!

I’ve found other brands’ toys to be more inconsistent. They’ll disconnect more frequently especially when I open another app or lock my phone. 

Long distance disconnections tend to be a regular occurrence with other toys, but I’ve maybe only encountered this once or twice in my entire Lush experience. And from my experience, that’s just hard to come by. 

One of the other things I LOVE about the Lush 3 and other Lovense toys is that the initial pairing with the app is so quick and easy to do. 

Video showing pairing the Lush 3 to the app

I have to sit and master just the right button click/hold routine to get my We-Vibe toys to pair. 

But the Lush 3 and Lovense app pair instantly. 

I just toggle a button on my phone and my Lush 3 is connected.

The new PCB (Printed Circuit Board) on the Lush 3 is specifically designed for better connectivity. But I never had any problems with the Lush 2 either, so I haven’t been able to tell a difference.

Bottom Line: Lush 3 Connectivity

The Lush 3 is going to have one of the strongest connections out of any of the app-controlled options out there. If a reliable connection is a MUST for you, I honestly don’t know that you’ll find something better. I’ve had great experiences in close-range Bluetooth mode and in long-distance mode - better than any other brand.

Lush 3 Comfort

Ok, HOW have we not talked about this sooner? (The real truth is that I’m not sure other people value comfort as much as me).

If you have read any of my other reviews, you KNOW that comfort is a HUGE MUST for me. I can guarantee you that I will have no fun in any situation where I am not comfy. That’s the same reason my husband and I are sure to set the thermostat just right before we get down to business – sexy business.

Egg vibrators provide internal feeling of fullness

So, the Lush trilogy are all insertable vibrators – and they’re not SMALL. One of these babies really takes up quite a bit of real estate in there. So people who enjoy a decent amount of girth and pressure on the vaginal walls are going to get the most fun out of this.

That extra pressure really allows it to press into your G-spot. But you should definitely have your favorite water-based lube on hand before you attempt to situate this baby.

Being a fairly tight person who typically prefers external stimulation, I will say that it can be a bit much sometimes. The Lovehoney Desire Egg and Lelo Lyla are the most comfortable egg vibrators to me since they’re smaller. 

Lovense Lush 3 Next to Lelo Lyla 2 to visually compare their width

But I rated the Lush 3 on the mid-level of comfort. Even though it does give a stretch, many people are looking for that full feeling! 

And the form-fitting and flexible antenna sits very comfortably. 

Lush 2 vs Lush 3 antenna shape

The Lush 3’s form-fitting antenna is noticeably more comfortable than the more rigid, straighter antenna of the Lush 2. The new antenna also doesn’t jostle around uncomfortably when you move like the old antenna did.

Some of the Lush’s competitors like the OhMiBod Esca 2 and Svakom Ella have antennas that move around uncomfortably - so I find the Lush more comfortable than those egg vibrators.

The button on this toy is also on the other side of the antenna from the Lush 2. The Lush 3’s button placement is easier to press, AND the little flashing light is not really noticeable (you can turn it off anyway). 

Really, the whole antenna just lays flatter – which also LOOKS better. I can pretty much wear whatever I want while this toy is in without it being noticeable.

One bummer that really can’t be avoided with G-spot egg vibrators – it does press on your bladder too. My bathroom trips are more frequent when I’m wearing this toy for a long night, so I don’t love wearing it for TOO long. Side note: you CAN pee with this toy in though which helps if you want to wear it out and not remove/replace every time you take a bathroom trip!  

Bottom Line: Lush 3 Comfort

You’ll know this toy is in – it can take adjusting to find the most comfortable position. It’s not quite as comfortable to me as a purely external toy – or toys where the internal arm is small like the We-Vibe Chorus (review)

But the newest updates make it more comfortable than its predecessor for just about any activity. 

We-Vibe Chorus, Lovehoney Desire Egg, Lelo Lyla 2 - smaller insertable vibrators for people who prefer thinner toys

If you don’t like a bit of fullness, you could try one of the smaller egg vibrators like the Lovehoney Desire Love Egg or Lelo Lyla. But if you enjoy some G-spot pressure, the Lush 3 should do the trick and the antenna is really comfortable now!

Lush 3 Battery Life

The Lush 3 claims 5 hours of battery life! I have always had more than enough battery life for my nights out. And that’s saying something because I tend to buzz the WHOLE time. I am also terrible at charging things, and I’ve had multiple sessions, each time coming back to find that it still has lots of life left.

But I took this a step further and tested all my egg vibrators compared to one another. I set them all up with a full charge, and put them on their highest power. 

Then I let them run until they were out!

I checked on them every ten minutes until there was the last (wo)man standing.

Here were my results:

The Lush lasted a little over 2 hours when it was blasting on maximum power 100% of the time. You can extend the time quite a bit if you also use lower power levels. 

There were toys that beat the Lush out, but these toys have much lower power levels than the Lush. So the Lush has a better battery-to-power ratio.

The charging port on this toy is also much better than the Lush 2’s design. The Lush 3 has a magnetic charging port which I like more than the old method of stabbing through the silicone with a plug and feeling like you may be breaking your toy.

Bottom Line: Battery Life

The Lush 3 claims one of the longest battery lives I’ve seen for its high power. Even if you use the max power the entire time, you can play for over 2 hours. And that can be extended greatly by incorporating lower and mid-levels in your play as well.

Lovense Lush 3 Review Results

Lovense Lush 3 Wearable G-spot Vibrator and App

I think the Lush 3 is a great toy if you:

  • Want the most powerful G-spot vibrations from a wearable vibe
  • Really value quick and reliable connectivity
  • Are looking for an even mix between rumbly and buzzy vibrations 
  • Want a more comfortable version of the Lush compared to the Lush 2 and enjoy feeling some G-spot pressure
  • Want a toy that can remain discreet in places with some ambient noise like cafes, restaurants, bars, and the outdoors
  • Don’t need external/clitoral stimulation to enjoy the vibrations
  • Want something to use with a long-distance partner
  • Want to give control of your toy to someone anonymously

I think an alternative wearable vibrator might be better for you if you:

  • Are looking for more external/clitoral stimulation
  • Tend to prefer lower-powered or extremely rumbly vibrations
  • Want a toy that isn’t very filling to provide better comfort
  • Are looking for something very inexpensive

Lush 2 Vs Lush 3: Is It Worth Upgrading

Lush 2 vs Lush 3 Products

Lush 2 vs Lush 3 Vibrations

The Lush 3 vibrations definitely START OUT more rumbly than the Lush 2. On the lowest levels you can feel and hear the difference. As you increase the power, the “rumble gap” starts to decrease though. By the time you reach the highest setting, I would say there’s really no noticeable difference in rumbliness/buzziness.

When it comes to POWER, I would say the LOWER settings on the Lush 3 are a bit more powerful than the Lush 2. But when it comes to the highest level, I did not notice a difference between the two vibrators. 

I do get slightly better G-spot stimulation from the Lush 3, but it’s so subtle I wouldn’t upgrade if I already owned the second version just for that.

Lush 2 vs Lush 3 Sound

When these toys are on the outside, I noticed that the Lush 3 seemed to be a little quieter on the low-levels from the deeper rumbliness. Once I’m wearing these, I don’t think there’s really a difference in sound level. 

Both are pretty dang quiet and can be worn just about anywhere with slight background noise. I wouldn’t wear either in the same room of a quiet house as someone else. But I’ve worn both to coffee shops, restaurants, and bars just fine. They even remained discreet in a car with my partner with just the sounds of the road to hide the Lush’s vibrations.

Lush 2 vs Lush 3 Connectivity

Lovense is always improving on connectivity as they roll out new versions of their toys. 

This one is hard for me to gauge from experience because I don’t have issues with either my Lush 2 or my Lush 3 connecting easily and remaining connected. My husband and I have found Lovense toys to be the best for connectivity.

But if you did experience some issues with your Lush 2, the newer version does have improved tech, so could help fix connectivity issues if you had them.

Lush 2 vs Lush 3 Comfort

The Lush 2 and Lush 3 have the same size and shape of insertable bulb, but the wrap-around antenna is different. The Lush 3 has a more permanent C-shape with a nice form-fitting and flexible antenna which really helps the toy stay in place better. It also means that the antenna won’t stick out as much or feel too rigid for comfort.

I found the antenna of the Lush 3 to be much more comfortable than the second version while the comfort of the interior bulb stayed the same. I value comfort a lot, so to me the substantial increase in comfort is the main reason to choose the Lush 3.

Lush 2 vs Lush 3 Battery Life

The Lush 2 claimed three hours of battery life, while the Lush 3 claims five hours (though it varies with what power you’re using). The three-hour charge seemed to last way more than I needed, and this five-hour vibrator has worked out even better.

So Is It Worth Upgrading from the Lush 2 to the Lush 3

If you already have the Lush 2, I think it’s only worth upgrading to the Lush 3 if:

  • The antenna on the Lush 2 felt uncomfortable to you. I found the flexible, form-fitting antenna of the Lush 3 much comfier.
  • If you DID experience connectivity issues with the Lush 2. Again, I haven’t had issues with either, but the tech in the third version is improved. 
  • You want 2 additional hours of use for longer public play sessions. 
  • You really value RUMBLY vibrations – but keep in mind that the increased rumbliness only applies to the lower power levels. Higher power levels get buzzier on both toys.

Though you do get slightly better G-spot stimulation it’s not hugely noticeable that it’s worth upgrading just for that if you already own the Lush 2. For me, the main worthwhile improvement was better comfort.

Lush 3 Alternatives

Clitoral Vibrator for Public and Long Distance Play – Lovense Ferri

The Lovense Ferri is a great wearable vibrator that focuses ONLY on clitoral stimulation

It’s actually my personal favorite vibrator for public play! After one trip with my husband out to a restaurant with the Ferri humming away between my legs, I knew it’d quickly be getting a LOT of use from me!

Lovense Lush 3 next to Lovense Ferri highlighting difference in stimulation

It’s also by Lovense, and uses the same app, so all the same app-control features apply to this one. Same great connectivity too.

One of the reasons this little vibe is at the TOP of my list is because it’s SO comfortable. And really easy to wear. There’s nothing insertable about it – just a magnet straight onto your panties. 

Ferri Secured to Panties

But the main reason it’s my favorite – the strong clit vibes secured in place exactly where I need them!

I personally need clitoral stimulation to orgasm so this pal quickly became my go-to for public outings. While a touch less powerful than the Lush, it’s REALLY powerful for how small it is. Plus the vibrations are more impactful since they’re on my clit rather than my G-spot.

The Ferri is the wearable vibrator I orgasm with most easily.

It’s a little louder than the Lush 3, especially since it’s external. But I’m still able to play in most settings. It does take a bit more awareness of your surroundings than the Lush though

You can also easily control both the Lovense Lush 3 and the Ferri in the Lovense app. I’ve enjoyed wearing them together for excellent dual stimulation.

Lovense Ferri and Lush Together

We’d Recommend the Lovense Ferri over the Lovense Lush 3 if:

  • You’re looking for a wearable vibe with powerful clitoral stimulation
  • Comfort is your top priority
  • You don’t care to have G-spot stimulation
  • You’re ok with slightly buzzier vibrations

If I’ve piqued your interest, you can read all about the Lovense Ferri in my full review.

Cheaper Lovense Alternative – Lush 2

The Lush 2 has almost identical features. The main difference is the shape of the antenna – which is not a compact C-shape and is more rigid. The Lush 2 (review) can be slightly less comfortable, but I’ve found it to be extremely reliable and just as powerful as the Lush 3.

Lovense Lush 2 next to Lovense Lush 3 for visual comparison

The cost is a bit lower, so this is just about as similar as you can get while keeping the cost down.

We’d Recommend the Lovense Lush 2 over the Lush 3 if:

  • You’re on a tighter budget
  • You don’t mind a bit less comfort from the old antenna design

Other Budget-Friendly Lush 3 Alternatives - VeDO Kiwi and Svakom Ella Neo

The Kiwi is my other favorite egg vibrator. It is just as strong as the Lush 3, and the vibrations feel exceptionally rumbly

More Budget-Friendly Lush 3 Alternatives - the Svakom Ella Neo and VeDO Kiwi

The main reason it has a worse overall score than the Lush is because it is only remote-controlled instead of app-controlled. So no long distance play, and you have less versatile control.

Showing the VeDO Kiwi's remote control

But because it’s remote-controlled, it’s much cheaper than app controlled egg vibrators! So it’s a great budget option. It’s quieter than the Lush, and has a similar comfort-level too. Check out my full VeDO Kiwi Review if you think this might be a better fit for you and your budget!

The Svakom Ella Neo is a great budget app-controlled option. 

Svakom Ella Neo as a cheaper app controlled alternative to the Lush 3

There’s two main tradeoffs you’re making with this lower-priced option in comparison to the Lush 3. 

  1. The Svakom Ella Neo’s app is less in-depth than Lovense’s. It provides more basic control. 
  2. The vibrations are less power (about 60% as strong).

But for almost half the cost, it might be worth it.

Ella Svakom and FeelConnect Features are Limited

You can still connect with a long distance partner and let them control your vibrations. There are still a variety of control features. They just are not as developed as some bigger brands’ apps.

OhMiBod Esca 2

The Esca 2 is another well known option within the egg vibrator world. But I don’t necessarily recommend this toy because it underperforms in several key areas.

The fit of this toy was pretty uncomfortable for me. The antenna can bump around uncomfortably and sort of shifts the toy out of place. So it doesn’t give as good of stimulation as others. 

Lovense Lush and OhMiBod Esca antennas showing the more comfortable form-fitting shape of the Lush

And the vibration power only reaches about 60% of the Lush 3’s strength. It’s still teasy and fun, but I get less stimulation from it. 

It was a tiny bit quieter than the Lush. But it’s such a slight difference that it didn’t have much of an impact on where you can actually wear it.

Lush 3 vs Esca 2

The main reason someone might choose the Esca over the Lush is if they just prefer the app. The Esca app did score a bit lower than the Lush and I personally prefer Lovense’s. OhMiBod’s app is slightly less customizable. But it’s simpler and some people may enjoy the setup better.

We’d Recommend the OhMiBod Esca 2 over the Lush 3 if:

  • You want an app that is very simple to use, but doesn’t give quite as much complete control of your toy

External and Internal Stimulation while Being Even More Comfortable: We-Vibe Chorus

This is a great pick if you want simultaneous G-spot and clitoral stimulation!

We-Vibe Chorus Remote and App Sitting on Pillow

The We-Vibe Chorus has a much slimmer internal arm than egg vibrators like the Lush 3. So I found it to be comfier than the Lush 3. It can also be worn during sex which is my favorite use of the Chorus!

The G-spot stimulation is not nearly as strong as the Lush 3 which is a bit of a bummer, but there is a clitoral motor on this toy. And the clit motor is much stronger than the Chorus’ G-spot motor.

I found it to be exceptionally quiet and rumbly. And I've found the Chorus maintains a good connection, but it does take a little more time to get connected initially.

The We-Vibe app doesn’t give quite as complete control as Lovense’s though. I like Lovense’s app the most.

But damn – the Chorus just LOOKS beautiful. And its silky, super rumbly vibrations feel lovely too – especially during sex. 

We-Vibe Chorus next to Lovense Lush 3

We’d Recommend the We-Vibe Chorus over the Lovense Lush 3 if:

  • You want external and internal vibrations
  • You want the quietest vibrator
  • You’re okay with a bit more disconnections than with a Lovense toy
  • You don’t like too much power in your toys
  • You prefer very rumbly vibrations
  • You want a vibrator you can wear during partnered sex

I review the We-Vibe Chorus in detail here if you want more info.

Lovense Lush 3 Vs Dolce (Previously Quake)

You may have seen that Lovense has also released their Lovense Dolce (originally named the Lovense Quake) a dual stimulation vibrator that looks strikingly like the Lush 3 – but also has a clitoral motor!

Lovense Dolce showing clit and G-spot motor

Well that seems like the best of both worlds!

The Dolce is fun and has a lot of positives going for it – strong clit vibes, strong G-spot vibes, and a reasonable price. But I think this first version misses the mark a lot on comfort. If you’re looking for a vibrator for public play, you may intend to be out for several hours – you need a toy that fits comfortably. And the Dolce is not it.

At least for me, discomfort can quickly become a major distraction for my arousal.

Since both the clit arm and the G-spot arm of the Dolce need to align correctly (and both are rather large), I find the Dolce much less comfortable to wear out than the Lush 3. 

Lovense Quake Beneath Pants

Instead, you might try the Lovense Ferri and Lush 3 used at the same time.

When using the Lush 3 and Ferri separately or together you have complete control to position each toy exactly where it fits best for comfort and stimulation. With the Dolce, adjusting one part affects the other, so it’s harder to get a comfortable fit.

Ferri and Lush combo is my preferred dual-stimulation over the Dolce

Unless you really want strong clit and G-spot stimulation in just one toy, I’d stick with the Lush 3 or the Ferri (or both) for your public fun. They also have longer battery life to extend your fun!

Lovense Lush 3 Vs Flexer

Lovense recently released another dual-stimulation wearable vibrator - the Lovense Flexer. However, the Lovense Lush 3 remains the better choice.

Lovense Flexer next to pillow

In addition to the vibrating motors in the Flexer's clitoral and G-spot arms, the Flexer has a third motor that makes it flex back-and-forth in a come hither motion. This motor is supposed to make the internal arm press on your G-spot and feel like fingering.

Unfortunately, the Lovense Flexer doesn't work as intended for me. When it flexes, the clitoral arm moves more than the G-spot arm. So the Flexer's G-spot arm does not press much on my G-spot, and the external arm shifts off my clit and pinches me uncomfortably.

It could work better for your anatomy, but the Flexer is not adjustable so it is a coin toss whether it will fit you well.

The Lush 3's vibrations are also much better than the Flexer's. The Lush 3 is about 5 times stronger than the Flexer. The Flexer is also much buzzier than the Lush 3, which most people will find distracting. And even though the Flexer is weaker than the Lush 3, the Flexer is somehow louder.

Due to the Flexer's poor stimulation and uncomfortable design, most people will prefer the Lovense Lush 3.

Lovense Lush 3 vs Vulse

The Lovense Vulse is a new egg vibrator from Lovense that's like the Lush 3. But the main stimulation comes from hands-free thrusting instead of powerful vibrations. Which egg vibrator is better for you depends on your priorities.

Lovense Vulse vs Lush 3

The Vulse also vibrates, but the vibrations are much weaker than the Lush 3's. The Vulse maxes out at just 40% of the Lush 3's vibration strength. However, the thrusting feels really good. I actually find internal movement feels better than G-spot vibrations. So I enjoy the Vulse's stimulation more, despite its weaker vibes.

However, the Lush 3 is better for play outside the bedroom. Since it doesn't move, the Lush will fit more securely for most people. The Lovense Vulse is also substantially louder than the Lovense Lush 3, and has a much shorter battery life.

The Lovense Vulse's sound compared to the Lovense Lush 3.

In general, I like the Vulse more for play inside the bedroom. I like using another vibrator on my clit while the Vulse provides an effortless thrusting motion internally. But for play outside the bedroom, the Lush 3 is the better choice.

Read more about my experience in my Lovense Vulse review

Final Thoughts

The power on this toy is really the highest I’ve experienced in a wearable toy. I’m pretty noise-conscious too, but this toy definitely earns the title of “sneaky”. 

The app has become my absolute favorite because it’s the most reliable I’ve seen in connectivity. I also love the control features available and have now developed my hub of vibe-patterns that REALLY do the trick.

If I’m not taking this toy out to dinner, the video-feature makes any long-distance weekends extra spicy.
