    Do mens breeches fit like womens breeches?

    I am looking to buy some breeches just for riding in and for lessons. I have an option to buy a pair of mens 38 breeches. I need either a 38 or 40 in womens breeches according to the sizing charts but I can't find a sizing chart for mens breeches.

    So my question is: Do mens breeches fit like the womens breeches?
    The person selling them says they do but I am not sure I believe that.
    I am buying them online so I can't try them on.

    Thanks in advance!

    BIG no, but they might fit if you don't have heavy upper legs.

    I didn't really think they would work. I will stick with womens.

    I think you'd find that the mens breeches don't fit a womans shape very well - so best to stick with something designed specifically for us - there are some good low priced ones if you look online at the various horse sites - Dover Saddlery, Smartpak, Equestrian Collections etc all have closeout sales on

    I think it depends greatly on your body type. I know a female person who used to wear men's breeches but she has a body type that is narrower in the hip/pelvis than most women and could make it work. Also, if men's breeches are sized anything like men's jeans, you may have to go larger in size - eg if you wear a 32" waist women's jean, you'll probably have to buy a 34" waist in men's jeans as men's patterns tend to be straighter between waist and hip rather than fitted (or curved) as are women's patterns.
