Oh La La Cheri Suspender Basque Set

I’ve developed an obsession for gorgeous lingerie, and I was delighted when Lovehoney chose me to test the gorgeous Lovehoney Sheer Cuban Heel Stockings.  Thanks, LH team!

Packaging & Looks

The packaging is simple with the stockings being displayed in a plastic sleeve with a cardboard insert.  The stockings are marked as one size, which instantly makes me nervous as I’m only 5’1 so a touch on the short side, but I remain open-minded as I take them out of the packaging.  They look absolutely gorgeous and feel super smooth!

Lovehoney Sheer Cuban Heel StockingsThe sheer black stockings are thin enough to be able to peek a glimpse of your skin through them, but they aren’t so fine that you slip a fingernail through them easily.  I’m sadly a little clumsy so if an item is too fine, it’s destined for lingerie heaven once I’ve got my clumsy fingers onto it!

The tops of the stockings are double layered, deep and bright red, with a stunning red back seam running right the way down to the ankles.  The Cuban heel design is stunning; I must admit I didn’t even know what a Cuban heel was so I had to google it, so this design is a first for me!  The soles of the stockings are bright red, which comes up and around the back of my heel.  The black parts of the stockings are matte.

The Fit

Lovehoney Sheer Cuban Heel StockingsI was apprehensive the first time I tried on the cuban heel stockings that they might not fit, but I needn’t have been… they finish in exactly the right place.  I like to wear my stockings relatively high, but not so high that I look too short (I don’t need any help!!).  As you can see from the photos, they cover enough of my legs for me to be able to wear a relatively short dress.

I like to wear these with a red or black basque, and I have a beautiful red and black basque that I wore in the photos which go with them perfectly.  The stockings stay up well once attached to my suspenders

Lovehoney Sheer Cuban Heel StockingsMy only minor gripe is that the stocking tops are quite tight, which makes my thighs bulge a little over the tops.  It’s nothing I intend to worry about as they still look great, but if you are particularly heavy around the thigh area then you may find these a little tight.

I feel gorgeous in the cuban heel stockings, a real temptress, and my legs feel lovely and smooth.

 

Recommendations

Lovehoney Sheer Cuban Heel StockingsAs a short human with slender legs and larger thighs, these fit me really well.  I would therefore recommend these to other short humans, and people of normal height!  However, for anyone with very large thighs, you may find the tops a little tight.
