Cool Breeches that are more flattering?

I have been blessed with my bottom being out of proportion with my legs and waist. My current breeches (bargain value- $32 tough rider) make my butt look massive. Anyone aware of breeches that would be show appropriate and disguise my booty? I was checking out taylored sportsman breeches, which have a wider belt which would be slimming, but am not sure how they look from the back.

I know it seems silly, but I am a fashionista outside of the show ring, and would like to look my best in it.

I love my toughriders, but I have also been into the 2-tone color breeches! I think they would help you out, as I find they did for me :) just my opinion though!

Don't call yourself a country gurl if your afraid to get a li'l down and dirty!

Tailored Sportsmans make anyone look amazing. Mine have thicker fabric, which seems to be more supportive than the spandex-like cheaper breeches. They are a great investment.

I'd try a few pants from the Kerrits line. When fitted correctly many if the comftorable squeeze your body to get rid of any unflattering lines.

Tailored Sportsmans might work for you, I would also check out some of Ariats different styles. I have a few pairs of Equine Couture breeches too and have been pleased with them as well.

The most flattering riding pants are riding tights as they are very tight :) Lol. But as for breeches I really love the Tailored Sportsmans they are very very good looking :) but if you want to go with riding tights I would go with the performance tights from Kerrits or Irideon Issential Riding Tights. Also the Ariat Heritage Knee Patch breeches are awesome :) hope this helps!

tailored sportsmen tailored sportsmen tailored sportsmen! love love love love love them. They make me look the best out of all the pants I own! They are pricey but hold up well, so if you find a pair used, they will still last a long time! I wish I could wear them to work but my boss has a horse and he knows what breeches are. ha!

Tailored Sportsman make great breeches, but can be costly. I have a really nice pair of full seat tough riders that I got 1 size too small (on purpose) and my bottom looks half decent in them! They are also very comfortable.
