HOW TO LOOK YOUR BEST IN BREECHES & JODHPURS
As riders, we spend a significant amount of time, energy and money ensuring our horses are comfortable and beautifully turned out. We go to great lengths to find perfectly fitting tack and gear for our equine partners, but what about ourselves?

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.


TOP-HEAVEY RIDERS

*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.

BOTTOM-HEAVY RIDERS

*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.

UP-&-DOWN RIDERS

*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.
