The material is super soft. I have a very expensive dress that feels like it is made out of the same material as the top portion and the lace is really lovely. I love the feel of it against my body. It wicks away sweat and is so comfortable I could literally sleep in it. The fit is comfortable and it feels great on. The lace trim is a great length. It gives those few extra inches of coverage so that if my shirt rides up, I don't show anything unsightly. It is really beautiful. I wear it as both a layering piece and by itself. I highly recommend this!
