03TH Dec, 2019
Feeling confident and at ease in your riding clothes effects your enjoyment of the sport and your performance in competition. Whether you’re top-heavy, bottom-heavy or more up-and-down, enhance your equestrian journey by simply dressing in breeches and jodhpurs that compliment your body shape.
POINTERS FOR EVERYONE
*Don’t underestimate the power of a tucked-in shirt. Regardless of your unique body shape, an untucked shirt will make you appear shabby.
*Pay attention to the fabric. Breeches and jodhpurs made from good quality material will help hide imperfections and provide a more structured silhouette.
*Wear a belt. Always.
*If wearing full-seat breeches or jodhpurs, ensure the seat is a darker colour than the pant. This has a magical slimming effect.
*It can be a struggle to find well-fitting breeches if you have thinner legs and a larger waist. Try pull-on breeches and jodhpurs. The extra stretch in the waistband will allow the pants to fit your midsection without being baggy in the legs.
*Denim breeches and riding jeans are a great alternative. The material provides structure and shape, keeping everything where it should be.
*Try Peter Williams Ladies Denim Breeches - Roses.
*Purchase breeches and jodhpurs with a side seam. The long, vertical line of a side seam make legs appear thinner and longer.
*Splurge on more expensive breeches and jodhpurs, as cheaper brands tend to stretch out of shape and go saggy.
*Go for contrasting full seat breeches as they’re more slimming than knee-patch breeches.
*Avoid low-rise waists which are prone to sag. Instead, go for a mid-rise fit. These breeches draw the eye upwards.
*Brighter colours on larger sizes can look amazing.
*Try Peter Williams Gel Seat Pull On Jodhpurs.
*Breeches and jodhpurs with pockets add more shape to your seat.
*You may find pull-on tights are a great alternative.
*High-waisted breeches will create the illusion of curves.
*Try Peter Williams Dressage Breeches.
