Good place to find plus sized riding clothes?

Hey everyone! So, I work at an equestrian center and am on the hunt for some new riding clothes. I weigh 175, so I'm not huge but I have had issues finding breaches that fit well in the past. Although that might be due to the fact that I always bought the cheapest ones. So I thought before buying anything new I would see what suggestions you guys might have. I am looking for both breaches and shirts. Shirts away tend to be hard for me to find also, not because they don't make them big enough necessarily but for someone like me who is top heavy the always seam to short... so any help would be great! I have been working lots so looking for well made items. Trying to get away from the super cheap stuff.

Ugh I know the feeling...

Smartpak, Horseloverz and a few others carry "Fullier Fillies" stuff, which favors us with curves. I bought tall boots from and was pleased with the quality (though they didn't fit due to my error).

http://www.eighteenhands.com has some resources you may be able to find some equipment :)

In addition to being plus sized, I have enourmous man calves. I like Kerrits and Irirdeon for chaps/tights/breeches.

I understand the calf issue. I also have an issue as my right calf is a full inch larger than the left. Even at my thinnest when I was in the military, finding boots to fit was agony as I also have a wide foot and a high instep. The Fuller Filly boot fit great even though I still have to struggle a little in zipping up the right boot.

I think most of my show clothes came either from SmartPak or from the Fuller Filly line although my riding tights are from Dover.
