Only Silk and Satin offers sophisticated english ladies, posing seductively in evening wear made out of all your favorite fabrics. The tour shows fully clothed, nude, and semi-nude shots. It also promises 208 models, 155,000+ images, and just under 400 videos, all of which, I might add, are 100% exclusive to the site. The site has an elegant look, from its classy magazine style covers to the garments the babes are wearing.

At first glance, the main page at Only Silk and Satin looks like it might be too busy for its own good. At first, I, myself, thought it might be a little stretched, but after closer examination, I realized they'd actually done a commendable job of organizing it all. The main menu, in spite of being fully-loaded, is pretty slim and, navigationally speaking, pretty fool proof. The site's quite interactive, too. There are podcasts and a forum, as well as a regularly updated newsfeed. In addition, videos can also be rated and commented, and often are. And upon logging in, you're greeted with a message from the admin, welcoming you and giving tidbits about upcoming material, and asking members to give feedback on anyway the site can be improved. So far, so good.
One might assume this site's content would have a limited scope. But, in spite of catering to a very specific niche, they've show you can be versatile and stil stay on target. They're really quite subtle, but if you pay attention, you'll notice they cater to a number of very popular side-fetishes. The search engine makes it a lot easier to appreciate the sheer variety you have at your disposal; it allows you to filter content by fabric type, nudity or non-nudity, video quality, and one I hadn't seen before: music or no music. Very nice. There's nearly 200 keywords to filter by in total. You can also sort content by model, date, or click the "random" button if you like a surprise.
Another great thing is that under "My OSS" you can setup a number of preferences that, by default, will be the way you view the site. A lot of them have to do with the number of items on a page, e.g., the number of thumbnails in a gallery, the number of models displayed per page in the index. You can also choose default video quality for the embedded player. They've done a great job of allowing the user to tailor the site to his specific tastes, particularly in regards to their photo galleries.
There's an impressive 1778 photo galleries here at Silk and Satin. Before you've even entered your chosen set, you're provided loads of crucial information, such as the main model involved, the date, number of images in the set, and an option to download the entire thing compressed in 3 separate resolutions before even entering the actual gallery. The actual gallery is pretty much your standard setup, i.e., row of thumbnails, but clicking a thumb, you're taken to a high-res image with a nice little viewer at the top that allows you to shift through the three different resolution sizes: Small (711 × 1,066px), medium(1365px × 2,048), and large(3,000 1,365px). There's 3 different sized, pin-up girl style silhouettes used as a reference. Cute.
I can't praise these images enough. It seems like they're aiming for an almost magazine kind of quality, and they're definitely getting there. The photos are professionally shot and it shows. There's a variety of poses delivered by real dolls decked out in shimmery lingerie and fancy dresses -- which are inevitably stripped off as the set progresses. And none of those pesky watermarks, either. Pro quality lighting, models, and a heck of a photographer capturing the magic. What more could you want?
As with the galleries, the outside of the video page has direct links for downloading in two separate resolutions. And, if the content happens to be in high-definition, there'll be a little HD tag to indicate it. You also get a few thumbnails from various parts of the scene. To get the real information, though, you'll want to go to the videos page. Here you'll get two HD download options and two options for streaming in High-Def, as well as a mobile file. Each video page also has its own screen cap gallery. The images aren't that big(768px × 432px) and have watermark. But who cares? They're screen grabs.
The older updates only offered low-res, poor quality DiVX files, which is perfectly understandable considering the site's ages. Thankfully the latest updates offer a HD quality Windows Media file, as well as a lower res but still crystal clear "medium quality" file. All in all I was happy with the video section of the site, aside from a few minor issues. I had some buffering problems with the embedded player once or twice. I also noticed download speeds weren't quite that fast. On a more positive note, the average download rate was hovering around 666 kilobytes-per-second, last I checked, anyway.
The scenes were very well shot, and I think the added element of being able to hear the silk and satin brushing against the girls skin as she takes off her garments really added to the whole thing. It's just not the same with the photos. The way some of these outfits shimmer in the light or cling to a gal's skin. You sould have to see it in motion to even begin to do it justice. Which is why it saddens me there's such a large gap between the video and photo count. In my humble opinion, they might want to focus a litte more on the videos in the future, because they're very hot.
As far as extras go, aside from the sites, they've also got a nice discussion forum that covers the whole network. There are three main forums: General Discussion, Models, and Technical Support. Most of these forums have 3 sub-forums(aside from the latter). I was impressed with the level of activity. The main forum has over 100,000 threads, and only one sub-forum is below 1,500 posts. Also, the last post in every forum has been from the same day I checked it every single time.
A perk of signing up is that you get a package deal. That's 5 additional "Only" sites for one reasonable price: Only Tease, Only Opaques, Only Secretaries, Only Melanie, Only Carla.
Only Silk and Satin is a cut above the rest in its particular field of expertise, but also has an appeal for anyone into fancy lingerie or just a penchant for elegant erotica in general. The site's been around a while and has a good reputation, with a consistent track record for frequent updates, varied content, and constant site-wide improvements. Although there are a few minor areas I'd, personally, change, especially in regards to the frequency of their video updates, there's really not much else to complain about here. This site's as solid as it gets.
