Quick question about pant size

Okay so my only pair of riding pants are a size 26. They are a bit tight to get on because I have wide hips but they're comfortable once their on.

The pants I want to buy are either 24-26 or 28-30. I'm wondering if the 24-26 would be too tight to get on or if the 28-30 would just be baggy and too loose?

The 26 or 28 would be fine its the 24 or 30 I'm wondering about. LOL

What do you think?

I think all pants should have a universal size.

Ummmmm... it's going to depend on the brand and how tight the 26's are. I, being me, not that I could be anyone else, would go for the 28-30's and make sure that the place you're getting them from has a good return policy.

Hip hugger breeches tend to run small. That said, if you can swing it, I'd buy both pair and just send the pair back that doesn't fit .

^^^ that's a pretty smart idea

I think a 28-30 is a good size. :) I would try them- bigger is better!

I actually have those! 2 pairs actually!

I'm really a size 30, but those fit pretty well. They're not to tight, and they do have stretch in them. I have no trouble getting them on or anything.

Sorry for stupid question, but what means those 28-30 and so on? When I buy pants in store they go by 8 - 10 - 12... And if you too tall and slim or, hm-hm, too short and heavy then what is the right size? I was thinking about getting pair too (as my jeans slips off the boots all the time when I'm taking lessons), but really confused with the sizes.

I do believe (dependind on the manufactorer) that the 28-30 is your waist measurement.

I'm a size 30 for horse pants, but for regular pants, I'm a size 5/6.

Do you know if they have the ability to be taken in or let out? The Tailoreds that I have have this section in the back that is there so if they fit perfectly everywhere else, but are just a little tight/loose for your taste, you can have them adjusted. Dover has that online chat option where you can connect directly with a customer service agent live. It's a great feature and they should be able to tell you if they have that feature.
