Can someone please help me understand lace quality?

 So, I read this article from "F" Yeah Lolita about lace quality - http://www.fyeahlolita.com/2010/04/how-to-tell-bad-lace-from-good-lace.html

So I thought I understood what good lace and bad lace was, because you could tell bad lace by the scratchiness and cheap netting, right? But.. I don't understand. I've seen a lot of brand things with lace with netting that this guide says is bad.. like the lace on these - http://pics.livejournal.com/carebearplur/pic/0000194z

Please note that I don't own any of these pictures, I'm just using them as examples.

So I don't understand, I thought lace with netting like these was bad lace, but if brand is using them then I guess not.. so how exactly can you tell?? Just if it's scratchy or ugly?
