Exclamation Good breeches that aren't v/ expensive

I recently ordered some Tuffrider schooling breeches in size 26 (they didnt have 24) and when they got here they were baggy but the waist fit fine
So i was wondering what breeches you could recommend for someone who's small (I'm 5'2) I only have 30 days to return or exchange them for something else so please help me!!
I was thinking of ordering the Devon-Aire All Pro Max Hipster Breeches because people say it runs small also I ride english if that changes anything aha
If you have thin legs or are small like me, what breeches do you use? What are some breeches that are a really great deal? (last long, not like $100)
Thanks! :)

Are you able to go into a store and try on some different brands and sizes to find your size and then have a look online to see if you can find good deals?

Where about are you located?

I recommend Devon-Aires. I have a few pair that I've used for four years to school and show in, and I would still wear them in the show ring. Only this year did I upgrade to Tredstep Symphony breeches for showing.

I'm a die-hard SmartPak shopper. Free returns on all sized items, free shipping over $75, and they take returns, no questions asked. It would be really beneficial to order a few different brands from SmartPak and return the ones that don't fit.

I'm in southern Florida, the closest place to me is kinda limited but there is a better place about an hour away from me. (Those are the ones I know of)

What size would you recommend if the size 26 tuffriders were baggy?
I'm thinking of getting these: Devon-Aire All-Pro Hipster Breech -

I second Devon Aires. I just bought a great pair for $40 brand new on eBay. eBay is a great source.

I love my Devon Aires! My brain cant remember which one I got, but I got the one you can get in longs for my long thin legs. I have a friend who is 5.11, and has very thin long legs as well and she wears Devon Aires in long. I have two pairs of On Course jodpurs from when I was 10, but needless to say they are a little short on me, but if I need to I use them- yes, I still (rarely) use jodpurs They are great for thin legs, but a little thick for my taste. My legs don't get cold/hot when I ride, although I get hot sometimes at the stable down south where it gets up to 105. Anyways, I also love the Irideon Issential tights.

Im from South Florida too, there are no good places to get horse stuff around there have to make the trek up to Wellington to get the good stuff. I just ordered a pair of SmartPak's Piper breeches, they are around $80, any order over $75 qualifies for free shipping, and they do free returns/exchanges.

I love Horze Ladies Active Knee Breeches! They have a variety of sizes and colors. Also, look into the Grand Prix a bit more pricey but definitely worth it!
