Review | Champagne Coloured Lace Stockings? Oh My!

When it comes to lingerie, I love  vintage inspired pieces and anything that gives a nod to the days of Old Hollywood glamor. That’s why I was super excited when Katrina from Ohhh Canada offered to send me a pair of Baci’s Champagne Floral Lace Thigh Highs. 

These gorgeous lace thigh highs are the second piece by Baci that I have received from Katrina to review. Back in November, I reviewed their red mesh chemise with attached garters and was really impressed by the quality of the outfit, especially given the ultra budget conscious price tag. As I like to joke, Baci is a great lingerie brand for those of us “with Agent Provocateur taste & a Costco budget.”

Once again, these Baci thigh highs didn’t disappoint. The delicate champagne coloured lace is luxuriously soft but still feels substantial enough to hold up to multiple wears. The thigh highs feature a seductive seam up the back and a thick band at the top that helps keep them in place. You can wear these with garters however, the elastic band is actually secure enough (without being uncomfortable and digging in to your skin) that these will stay up on their own. I don’t know if I’d actually leave the house without the security of having them attached to a garter, but I managed to lounge around the house in them for several hours without once having to pull them up or re-adjust them. What I love about these thigh highs:

1) The fit: As someone who loves to wear skirts but hates the elastic waistband of tights, I love the idea of thigh highs. However, more often than not they never fit my thighs properly and I end up spending the whole day yanking them up or worrying that they are going to fall down, which defeats the purpose of wearing them in the first place. Baci stockings are the only thigh-highs I’ve never had this experience with.

2) The style: These champagne coloured stockings are simply gorgeous. These would be perfect to wear in the bedroom with a nice lingerie set. However, as a fan of funky, printed tights, I like these so much I wouldn’t think twice of wearing them outside of the house with a nice dress. At $14.99 a pair, they are very reasonably priced for what you get.

3) Sex appeal: When it comes to what makes you feel sexy, everyone is different. These stockings make me think of the days of Old Hollywood and like something you might find in Mae West’s boudoir. When I put them on I feel like a sexy starlet ready to seduce her leading man (Um, I just need a suitable leading man for this scenario.)

Contrary to what the photo may suggest, you don’t have to be a skinny Asian girl with hair long enough to cover your boobs to pull these off. To prove this, I’ve snapped a few photos of myself in the thigh highs:

(Please ignore the lowly lit iPhone photography. I just got a new lap top and haven’t installed photoshop on it yet!)

The only thing you should be aware of when purchasing these stockings is that they come in “one size fits most.” They are super stretchy so I definitely think they could fit multiple sizes. However, Baci products tend to run on the small side, so Ohhh Canada advises that the stockings fit best on sizes 2-8. Also, since they are delicate – make sure to hand wash them in cold water & line dry to keep them looking their best 🙂

These gorgeous babies are available at Ohhh Canada  & Vixen Burlesque Boutique. Thanks for the lovely gift guys!

I received the Baci Champagne Floral Lace Thigh Highs free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion of the product. All views are my own.
