What is your favorite riding apparel?

Let's get some plus size riding apparel reviews/ recommendations going!

What is your favorite, comfiest, most dependable, best fitting riding apparel? If you don't mind getting super personal, what size do you wear?

I'll go first!

Kerrits Performance Riding Tights are my go-to choice. I wear them almost everytime I ride because they are soft, stretchy, comfy, and they don't gove me the dreaded muffin top <shudder>. These tights go up to 2X. I wear a size 20 bottom and the 1X fits me perfect! I have a pair of these in XL and I can get away with the smaller size but I have them in tan and you can see my undies right through because they are a little snug. LOL. That would be my only complaint about this product. hahaha.

I have heard good things about those. I might have to try them.

I have two pairs of the Fuller Fillies full seat breeches. I do not agree with their sizing structure that says measure and buy the size that is 6" down from your waist size. That might be because I HATE things that are tight around my middle. I bought one size down from what I would normally buy and they fit amazing. Nice fabric that hides the bumps well.

I have the fuller fillies show boots and 2 pairs of chaps suede effect and leather effect I would highly reccomend them.

I wear Dublin breeches size 16- 18 and Blousans size 18-20.

All my show gear is also fuller fillies.Jackets and shirts size 18-20.

I usually...ok, always ride in jeans and a t-shirt! lol I don't show, jump (unless it's an accident) or anything like that I just ride where I can, when I can.

But thank God for stretchy jean material!

I absolutely love FITS breeches. They are so comfortable they are almost obscene. Sadly, they are too expensive to have a wardrobe of them. I am a bit shy when going out in public with breeches on and these don't help. They look like they are painted on.

I pretty much live in Wrangler's ultimate riding jeans (sz 12) most of the year and in winter Under Armor cold gear tights (L) though I don't venture out in public in them lol!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Allison, those are rather interesting looking breeches. Why didn't they just do a fullseat instead of making the rider look like they're wearing a thong?

The reason for the split seat is to allow more stretch and flexibility. Full seat breeches offer a large area of no stretch which make mounting a 17 hand horse from the ground SOOO much fun.

I live in my jeans and ariat boots. I buy most of my jeans from catos, and I wear the fat baby line of Ariats. Although, half the time I ride in scrubs and tennis shoes cause I come straight from work lol

I found jeans at cabelas, MTD's. that are rainproof, they are a little warmer than regular jeans, probably cause they dont breath as much but they are great for drizzly days, Don t have to change back and my butt stays dry. I wish thier was a product like the utlimate riding jeans for men. Most riding stuff is for chicks,,
