Sexy...but they hurt me!!!

These well made fishnet thigh highs are the sexiest hosiery I have worn. Unfortunately, they have wire trim and dig into my legs. They can not be worn for dancing without garters and garters hide the feathery tops, which is what makes these so sexy. If they were comfortable and could stay up for vigorous activity, I'd give these a 12 star rating and wear them every day! Go with a plain pair of fishnet thigh highs at less than half the price.

extremely useful review
The "maribou top fishnet thigh high" stockings are my first pair of thigh highs from Baci Lingerie. While they are beautiful and sexy, they are very uncomfortable to wear, which is too bad because I would wear these every day if I could.

The good news: these are a high quality item. They are packaged on a white card in a clear plastic bag and then placed in a hosiery box with a picture of a model on each side--front and rear views. It is quite an elegantly designed package for stockings. The fishnet is quite "dainty" yet very durable--even with lots of stretching and twisting I was unable to damage the fishnet. There is a 1.5" band of elastic that adheres to your thighs and holds the stockings up without the need for any garters. The "tackiness" of the band is not very strong and with vigorous movement the stockings will fall. If you are wearing them around the bedroom for some teasing and fun, they are fine. If you are wearing them on the dancefloor, you will want to use garters to hold them up. It would not be a pretty view if they were to fall down while dancing.

Now, the bad news: at the top of the fishnet thigh highs there is a narrow band of soft feathers. The feathers (actually fearthery pieces and not full feathers) are attached to a stiff thin felt covered wire. There is no stretch to the wire so it is only attached to the stockings in 3 places. This can leave a gap when they are in place. I find that where the wires are twisted together and attached to the top of the stockings, the edges dig into my legs. To fix this, I cut off the extra edges of wire and wrapped a small piece of adhesive tape around the remaining edge. This made the stockings much more comfortable, but less attractive. The white tape is very obvious against the black stockings. My partner suggested using electrical tape because that is black but we didn't have any on hand. Either way, the addition of any tape is a distraction.

I have pretty slender, but short, legs so these fit me "OK". They reach about 4" above my knees where my leg measures 15" around. The fishnet would go higher but the "maribou feathering" does not stretch any more. Without stretching, and laying flat, the maribou trim measures 7" (14") so you can see that there is very little wiggle room. If you have longer legs or larger thighs these probably won't work for you.

These stockings were "...designed in Miami..." and "...made in Taiwan...". The printing on the package is so tiny, tiny, tiny that none of us could read most of the information (of which there is very little). The material is 100% nylon, which strikes me as odd because of the amount of stretch. I would have guessed that there is some spandex mixed in, but it is not listed. The washing instructions are to hand wash these in cold water (separately), no bleach and line dry. I do not "line dry" but rather dry these flat on a terry cloth towel. It just seems to me that if you were to hang these on a line there would be marks (creases) left behind in the stockings. They are very light weight and dry quickly.
Experience
I love the way these look, but would like them to fit higher on my thighs. I also wish that the maribou feather trim was not attached to a wire but an elastic band so that they would be more comfortable and fit a wider range of leg sizes and shapes. They are only available in one size and one color (black). I tried them on with a pair of heels (4" so not too, too high--I don't do high or I would fall and no one wants that!!) and a short skirt. They looked amazing--when I walked the tops of the stockings kept peeking out from the skirt and I was told that it was a very sexy look (I am trying to be humble here....) and I do agree. BUT, although I would like to wear them when we go out clubbing, I am unable to do so. They would not look good with garters so the sex appeal factor would be lost.

In the bedroom I have worn these with a black bustier and thong; a red corset with black lace trim and a black babydoll. I also have the "midnight oasis corset" which is a bright medium blue with black trim. My favorite looks are the red/black corset and a pair of lace panties and a black bra--simple, but really HOT!
Follow-up commentary
I was on the fence when I wrote the original review because these are really pretty stockings but they have too many problems. They snagged easily and the feathery trim is really uncomfortable and not worth wearing. I ended up removing the trim altogether, but after another 2 wearings (and not for very long) they were in such bad shape I ended up tossing them. For $20 I expected more. Because of the discomfort, I would say they get 2 stars. If they were more sturdy and more comfortable, I would give them 5 stars because they really are attractive.
