Question Coat?

I am looking for a show coat. More dressage like..

But I don't know what size I would be???

The best thing is to go try some on at a local store and figure out what size you are in different brands.
I've always lucked out and bought mine used...

Unfortunately we have a very small english group around here, so our only store doesn't have any that I could try on :(

I got one from Dover (on cheaper side). Love it. Ladies' Devon-Aire® Dressage Coat < Dressage Show Coats < Riding Apparel|Dover Saddlery. However I'm not sure how you go with sizes: I tried mine on in store.

You can always get them tailored and most sites have a sizing chart as well. Buying used means I've had all my coats tailored, so they look custom.

That's a nice one Kitten!
Yeah, getting it tailored isn't a problem, but I want to get one that will fit the best right when I buy it.

I saw a RJ Classics one for sale on ebay, it was a 2R. What does that mean?

Size 2 (pretty small, I think, but google RJ classics for a size chart) and the "R" stands for regular length. I wear a long (L), as I am 5'9.

I thought I would try riding an English class so went & got myself most what I need saddle,clothes,boots etc. I'm taller & have long arms so The RJ classics came recommended as one that would probably fit. Well I went & tried on a bunch& I did end up with an RJ jacket only one that fit decent.Well I have the outfit, now to try it out... it is still hanging in my closet...
