Angry Breeches are so frustrating

Why is it that it's almost impossible to find show breeches that are either 38L or XL and are not low rise and not expensive. I wish I could wear a 34. There are 34's all over the place. I may just have to end up wearing Devon Aire schooling tights to shows. Those fit me perfectly and are not low rise. I just have to buy a ton of them because the crotch seams rip so easily.

You know what really sucks? I've been wearing 38L and XL for two years. Last summer I lost 25lbs and went down from size 16 jeans to a size 12. I didn't go down one size in breeches. Yet somehow my 38L Sigma fullseats, which fit a little loose before, are baggy on me now. All my knee patch breeches are Devon-Aire's. Does that company just run smaller? Or do Sigma's run larger?

Try Horse Supplies & Horse Tack HorseLoverZ.com. I just got 2 pairs of breeches from them at only $18.95 a pair. I believe they have up to size 40L. Good luck! I'm having the same problem with show shirts! Apparently if you ride horses, you're not supposed to have boobs, lmao??????

Not to butt in or anything but I have a some what similar issue. I have NO CLUE what size Breeches I wear (mainly because the four I own were hand-me downs and I just tried them on and if they fit they fit, I have to hunt down the size tag location) but I know they have to be at lest a XL since I wear a size 18in Jeans. I've come to the point where the four pairs of jodsd I own are ripping holes at the knee patches, or else the zipper is tearing away from the material and I can't get away with jods like that in the show ring. I don't care about riding in them at home but how do I know if a size "XL" will fit me? I am also assuming that since blossom856 is a size 16 and wears 38L's I will probably need 40L's?? Of they even have that size??

Finding the right size breeches and riding tights? - Yahoo! Answers

I don't know if this helps, but it's worth a try. I wear a size 10-14 jean, depending on brand, and wear a 32 or 34 in breeches.

Ah Ha! Thank you *goes to look for tape measure*

Looks like I am a 42... I am never going to find any breeches.

Ya know the same thing goes for hunt coats, I have one 18 that fits ok but tight, then tried on another 18 and couldn't even fit my arm in it. I guess we'll all have to learn now to not judge ourselves on a #, lol

That's probably because hunt coats are done in two completely different sizing systems depending which brand you get. There are some (ie. RJ Classics) that match up with North American Street sizing, while others use a British type sizing, which makes it about +4-6 (so like if I am a 10-12 in street sizes, I wear a 14-16 hunt coat). Good info to know, especially if you are buying online :)


With breeches it is probably just typical brand to brand small variations. So for example where I'm a size 32, some 30s are fine, but the odd brand I need a 34. Same as street shoes...can go up or down a size, just depends. For those having trouble with fit, I think your best bet is to try some different brands, as they will vary in fit.
