The original purpose of the sloping top tube was to allow clearance for a long skirt. These days, it provides extra clearance for those of us who are short or not as athletic getting on the bike. ) If your wife is young, limber and tall, she may as well go with a diamond frame.

As for seats, I have a Selle Italia women's Octavia, and find it a very comfortable seat.
