EF6 using Lazy Loading

I am working with a pretty large data set as a test for a really late data set. After instantiating the context I set LazyLoading property to true. This seems to be working.

Am I wrong? Do I need to use Lazy<T>?

Maybe this will help.

the prerequisites for lazy loading:

    your entity class must be public and not sealed
    the navigation property (related entity) that you want to be lazy loaded has to be a virtual property
    two things need to be configured as true on the context :
        lazy loading (context.Configuration.LazyLoadingEnabled = true;)
        proxy creation (context.Configuration.ProxyCreationEnabled = true;)
