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.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

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 .

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

Ride more, worry less.

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.
