This bralette has lace and its padded, what more can you ask for?? It's style and comfort all in one! I've worn this twice after purchasing a size m/l and I found the elastic under the bust to be a bit too snug, but the straps are the perfect length and the pads stay where they need to! It feels supportive and I love when the lace straps peek out from the neckline of a top. 10/10 better than a bra with underwire.
