You've just got to look around the VeloVixen office to realise that women come in all shapes and sizes, and that size is not often a true reflection on athletic ability. Fat Lass At the Back bring a range of flattering cycling clothing for women up to a UK size 26, including the Fat Lass at the Back Lanterne Rouge women's cycling jersey - a simple, chic long sleeve jersey suitable for all styles of cycling.
As with the branding, plenty of thought has been put into the Fat Lass at the Back Lanterne Rouge long sleeve women's cycling jersey. This striking red model has been designed as a result of listening to what customers really want. Fat Lass At the Back have re-designed the standard women’s cycling jersey template to create a curve friendly jersey. It's longer than most jerseys to make sure you're not left feeling exposed, and offers a graduated black body and side panels to lead the eye away from the lower torse and towards the head and shoulders.
Made from a super soft, fleece lined, technical fabric, the Lanterne Rouge jersey is perfect for all but the hottest days, and can double on cooler days as a top layer. It's fully breathable, sweat wicking and quick drying. And every detail has been thought of, from the full length zip for ease of access to the 3 pockets with a Smart Phone friendly, zip pocket on the rear to stash your valuables.

Fat Lad At the Back was conceived when three 'large framed lads' including founder Richard Bye, rode to the Alps. After years of squeezing into ill-fitting and often unflattering kit, Bye decided to create a range of easy to wear, high quality garments using the best technical fabrics available.
Yorkshire-based Fat Lad At the Back ('F.L.A.B.'!) caters for cyclists who, like the founders, are fighting flab for a fitter body through cycling (their words, not ours!). Inundated by requests from female cyclists following the press and proven popularity of their male collection (including an impressive showing on the BBC's Dragons' Den), Fat Lad At the Back launched a women's specific range of plus-sized cycling clothing in response to the demand.
Launched in 2013 by Richard and his wife Lynn, Fat Lad At The Back and Fat Lass at the Back have gone from strength to strength. They design their garments in the UK and manufacture them primarily in Italy. Their focus on fit and quality is fast becoming legendary, with exceptional attention to detail in their tailoring.
*Although we already suspected it, we took guidance both from our customers and from the Fat Lass at the Back themselves as to whether overt use of the brand would appeal to women as much as to men. We quickly realised that demand was strong and that many women have been hankering after plus sized women-specific cycling kit!*
