The Norse goddess Frigga/Frig/Frija is the queen of Asgard, wife of Odin and mother of Thor. Her character in Marvel comics first appeared in the 1960s. She was played by Renee Russo in the 2011 film “Thor”, wearing an elegant breastplate. This piece is based in part on that armor.

The piece ties on in a criss-cross style at the back. This is not a bra so it can be cinched to fit a range of sizes, from about 36C to 40D. It is 17″ wide at the base and 9″ wide just below the straps. Can be worn alone or over another garment.

It’s painted a bronze gold and ornamented with celtic knotwork and a budding tree design, inspired by the fairy drawings of Brian Froud.
