Satin and lace disappointment

I was disappointed by the color and cheapness of this negligee. The lace accents are beautiful and I like that the straps are adjustable, but this is not a piece that is made to last. It holds wrinkles terribly and hangs unflatteringly on the body.

extremely useful review
I am a huge fan of Baci and own many of their other lingerie sets, but this negligee was a disappointment all around. If you are on the smaller end of your size, it will be baggy and wrinkled, hanging awkwardly and hiding your breasts. If you are on the larger end, you may not even get it on - the material has virtually no give! The lace accents are beautiful and I like that the straps are adjustable, but this is not a piece that is made to last. Also, the color in the promo pictures is very misleading - the real color is more of a yellowy peach. My pictures are truer to the real color than the promo pictures, but it is still a bit yellower than it appears.

Fabric
The gold fabric is 100% polyester. It is ever-so-slightly see-through, but not more than your average white shirt. It would be appropriate for wearing as a top as long as you have a bra or something else covering your nipples. This negligee has no padding and no breast support whatsoever. I found that with my slim body and small breasts, the cups hung out in front of my breasts, making them look even smaller.

There is no stretch to the fabric at all, so beware ordering a size that may be slightly small on you! You may have trouble getting it on. The fabric is very light, which makes it comfortable and breathable. However, I found it a bit stiff - it doesn't give the lovely drape/hang you'd expect from a silk piece. It holds wrinkles terribly, and unfortunately the tag indicates that it should not be ironed. It lost a bit of the wrinkles after washing, but they were still clearly visible.

I was hoping for a deep gold color, as shown in the pictures on the product page, but what I got was more of a yellowy peach.


Lace
Like the gold fabric, the lace has pretty much no give. The broad lace accents were initially what attracted me to this negligee, and they are beautiful indeed. The lace is remarkably sturdy - it can be pulled on with no signs of ripping or wearing out, and holds its shape very well. This was my favorite part about the piece.


Straps
The straps are stretchy and adjust with the same mechanism as normal bra straps. They are the same yellow-peach color as the main body of the negligee. The ring and adjuster are gold-painted plastic, a little more yellow than the straps themselves.
straps
The straps can adjust to a very large range of lengths. On the SM size, they go from 13" to 18" long. Their stretchiness is really quite meaningless, because unless your boobs are MUCH wider than your torso, attempting to tighten the straps too much will just pull the cups over them.


Seams
The seams were my least favorite part about this set. They are just not built to last. There is no seam at the base of the gold fabric - it is simply sewn to the lace with a single line of black thread. The straps are attached in a similar fashion.
lace seams
Now, I don't expect the seams on mine to see much stress, especially as this piece is rather large on me, but if you accidentally catch it the wrong way or attempt to stretch it while putting it on, you could probably rip the stitching.

On the other hand, the seams connecting the two panels of the negligee and those connecting the body and the cups are just fine. They are sturdy and will hold up even if a string or two goes loose.

Measurements (size SM)
Base seam: 19.5" laid flat (double that to get the circumference)
Back/base of cups seam laid flat: 15.5"
Base of cups (with lace): 8"
Base of cups (without lace): 4.5"
Straps: 13" - 18" adjustable


Care & Washing
The icons on the tag are a bit confusing, but they indicate that this negligee should be hand-washed and hung to dry. Do not iron, dry clean, wash in a machine, or tumble dry.
Follow-up commentary
I tossed this piece out shortly after reviewing it. I really wanted to like it, but it was just an unflattering mess.
