    So many of Lovehoney's leather items are tempting as heck but won't fit me.

    If I were to drill a hole into the leather, would that damage it and cause the surrounding material to break ?
    Could anyone recommend other methods of adjusting too-big leather harnesses/etc. ?

    Lovehoney has a great returns policy but I doubt they'd be okay with me technically damaging goods on purpose, so I don't want to buy something without knowing I can actually adjust it to fit me first. :s

    Leather punches are the way to go, and not expensive, better spending few quid on the proper thing than start drilling holes

    It's so comforting just to know it's a possibility !
    I'll look into leather punches, thank you. :D

    Exactly right, a leather punch is what you need, super simple to use and not expensive either. Even stitching leather is relatively easy if it were ever necessary.

    You can buy a leather hole punch. I have one that I use for when I buy belts and need an extra whole. It won't damage or split the harness as it literally just punches a hole

    There are simple hand held tools for both making holes and putting rings around them. Relatively cheap and found in stores that sell material. Also some diy stores.
