Control Top? Not So Much.

The Control Top Pantyhose by Baci have a unique pattern on them, stretch enough to fit my XL body, and are very comfortable. They pattern does not end up looking awkward when stretched on my thicker legs. I'd recommend these pantyhose to anyone, as long as you're not looking for control top. The top of these pantyhose control nothing.

extremely useful review
The Control Top Pantyhose by Baci is available in one-size-fits-most only. I wear a size XL but the majority of the pantyhose that I’ve purchased in the past by the Baci brand have fit me well.

The pantyhose arrive packaged in a thin, rectangular box. The front of the box states the company website and has a front view of a model wearing the stockings. The back of the packaging has a back view of the model in the stockings and states the product name, size, material composition, and care instructions. I keep my pantyhose in my stockings/sock drawer. The packaging can be recycled.

Inside of the box, the pantyhose are wrapped around a thin piece of cardboard and surrounded by plastic. The pantyhose are 100% nylon. The material to the stockings is stretchy in both width and length. I’ve taken a few measurements but if you need additional measurements, let me know and I can get them for you.

Waistband unstretched: 8 ½ inches
Waistband stretched as much as I could: 24 inches
Length of pantyhose unstretched: 35 inches
Length of pantyhose stretched: well past 60 inches

The waistband to the pantyhose is a thick, black elastic band (just under ¾ inches in length) and is very stretchy. The stockings have a netted design of lines and leafs. The reason why I purchased these pantyhose is because of the design. I purchased them to wear beneath a skirt while out in public. I’ve received many compliments on other pairs of Baci pantyhose that I’ve worn out and I’m sure I’ll receive them on these as well.

The stockings are considered to be control-top pantyhose. Control top pantyhose are supposed to support your belly and your bum while wearing them. When I wear a form-fitting dress, I’ll wear control-top pantyhose with the outfit to make my chubby belly appear smoother. Typically with control top pantyhose, the top part of the pantyhose is a thicker material.

Personally, I don’t find these pantyhose to be “control-top” at all. The top 8 inches (length, unstretched) of the pantyhose is not any thicker than the rest. The only difference between the top of these pantyhose and the bottom is that the netting is closer together at the top. If you’re main interest in these pantyhose is the control-top, you’ll be very disappointed.

The length of the pantyhose fit me well. I’m 5’6 in height and am able to pull the pantyhose an inch or two above my belly button. The width of the pantyhose also worked well for my thicker legs because they are so incredibly stretchy. The waistband stretches to fit and does not feel restricting in any way. The toes are reinforced and there is no lining in the crotch of the pantyhose.

If you look at the stock photo on the product page, you’ll see that there is a netted design on the bum of the pantyhose. The pantyhose could be worn so that the design sits at the front rather than the back. For myself, I don’t really care about the design on the bum because I only plan on wearing these while out in public. The design is cute but when I looked in the mirror at the design, it was really stretched because of my larger bum.

The pantyhose were really comfortable and I have no complaints of skin irritation while wearing them. The packaging states that the pantyhose should be hand washed separately in cold water and line dried. The pantyhose should not be bleached. Below is a photo of the pantyhose worn by me.

Overall, I really like the pantyhose. They fit me nicely and the design doesn’t look awkward when it’s stretched out like some other patterned pantyhose I’ve tried in the past. I’ve deducted one star from the rating because they’re advertised as “control top” pantyhose but they really shouldn’t be. As long as you’re not looking for control top, you’ll love them.

    Ms.N, Baci doesn't list a weight bracket for their OSFM items : ( Sorry love
