    Default Skin or Lace...whats your favourite?

    I have been wearing lace for a few years now. I started with French lace, but now Im on Swiss Lace.

    I have had one skin piece before.

    I was just wondering whether people preferred lace or skin or if you have both?

    sorry I should have been clearer. I was wondering which you ultimately you preferred between the french lace, swiss lace and skin piece?

    I have tried both swiss lace and skin. each has their merits depending on the occasion. as a first piece try swiss lace. if you want to go short or have you hair under close scrutiny then skin is almost invisible, but more fragile

    I prefer Swiss lace over French one. It is more natural looking to match the skin. My friend, who wears Swiss lace, also ranks it better as she find it softer and finer.
    I find it difficult to apply and I constantly need someone else to do it for me in initial days. You can make it by yourself with little practice though. But may be durability wise French one is more preferable. Also applying them is quite easy compared to Swiss one. What is your opinion about silk tops?

    I find Swiss Lace (or at least the ones I have) are as durable as French lace. In fact, I can make a piece last 12-months.

    Silk tops are supposed to give the most natural looking appearance by making the knots invisible. The ones I have seen are very convincing. Worth a try.
