The Victorain Bicycle Suit ~ Why Dress a Character in THAT? by Gail Carriger

In my novella, How To Marry A Werewolf (In 10 Easy Steps), Faith the main character (an upstart American girl) is a proponent of the great freedom and joy in the bicycle suit.

The main character in Reticence, Arsenic, also enjoys this item of clothing.

Possibly, just possibly, there is a bit of rebellion in this choice, but I can imagine no matter what that she would love the freedom of movement.
