No shiny lycra, no bulky pads. No pink butterflies. Just simple lines & style that let you get on with your sport. Harlot Clothing Company makes its apparel one small batch at a time right here in the USA. About the name: back in the late 1800's, critics warned that the "unfettered liberty of bicycling would intoxicate women to immoral acts". Women who wore bloomers or other forms of altered dress while riding their bikes were fined and treated like prostitutes. Women just put their chins up and pedaled on, and in 1896 Susan B. Anthony said "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than any single other thing in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood."
