How to Recognize Cheap Lace Lingerie

Lace lingerie is something that a lot of women keep in their drawers for special nights with their significant others. Or, alternatively, when they just want to feel an extra bit of sexy. However, if you’re going to buy lace lingerie, especially if it’s expensive lace lingerie, it’s important to be able to recognize the signs of cheap construction. After all, just because something’s expensive, that doesn’t mean it’s good quality.

How to Recognize Cheap Lace Lingerie

Cheap lace has some very obvious tell tales if you know precisely what it is you’re looking for. Whether it’s a cheap lace bra, or some poorly made frills on a corset, the signs are always the same.

First and foremost, you need to look at the weave of the pattern. If you were looking at a pair of best quality lace panties, for instance, you would see that the weave is very tight and very smooth. Cheap lace, on the other hand, will have a lot of holes in it, and it won’t be very tight at all. If you look close at cheap lace it’s actually rather easy to see the individual loops of the weave, often because they’re made by a machine which simply cannot duplicate the quality of handmade lace put together by an experienced craftsperson.sheer lace bra set

Another sign is that cheap lace is very blocky when compared to quality lace. Think about the images in the lace like you would resolution on a computer screen. Quality lace is smooth and lovely, with a great amount of detail. Cheap lace, by contrast, will have very simple patterns that are blocky and which would look out of focus if they were put up on a screen somewhere. Also, and this is really the easier one, if the price is too good to be true, look very carefully at the lace itself. Chances are it won’t pass a vision test.

Dealing With Cheap Lace

If it turns out that you have cheap lace on your lingerie, all hope isn’t lost. Just because lace is cheap doesn’t mean that you should get rid of it; it just means you’ll have to be careful. Any kind of lace should be hand washed, and it should be washed in cool water. It should also be left to air dry. Machine drying can destroy any kind of lace, leaving you with a crumbling piece of fabric.
