Breeches for Dressage

Cross-Over Fullseat Breech - Kerrits

Would the white breeches be okay to ride in anything higher than introductory levels? I really like the darker underprint (I'm sure all other female equestrians will know what I mean). I like these, but I'm not sure if the darker pockets will look awkward in Dressage.

if you wear a jacket, won't it cover those pockets? Our schooling shows are so casual that most folks don't wear jackets (often pretty hot, too) . Even a vest would cover them, wouldn't it?

I am glad they are not using the same materials as the "sit tight" line. Those were icky, IMO, as they were too sticky and made a lot of noise as they rubbed on your saddle.

Those are totally fine for competition. I myself am not partial to the "tights" fabric as IMO it reveals a bit too much, especially in white. So commando or white no line panties are in order. I have two nice thick pairs of real breeches that I compete in and they are great. Definitely worth the extra $$ to have everything covered IMO.

Just an aside here, but I wonder where that expression (commando) came from.

If these are the same ones I saw, I actually quite liked these breeches in the store. The material isn't that thin spandex-y material which is nice even though they're still thin. I'm not sure exactly what they're made of but it feels pretty nice. I'm considering a pair of the white/grey ones for showing as well as I think they're quite good looking. I've seen many dressage riders in the white & black seated breeches at shows so these are definitely okay :)
