    Default Irideon full-seat breeches: experience with Passeio, Bellisima or Cordelay models?

    I love the Irideon Cadence full seats and wear nothing else, including a white pair for dressage shows. I need a new pair of show breeches. Has anyone tried the Irideon Passeio, Bellisima or Cordelay full-seat breeches? How do they fit compared with the Cadence? The Cadence are super comfy and have a lot of stretch and wiggle room and I was wondering if the others are similar in this respect.

    The second question is which of the three--Passeio, Bellisima, Cordelay--do you prefer?

    Well, for future reference and since apparently no one else wears these breeches , I went to my tack store and looked at the three different models and tried on two of them in knee-patch (they didn't have full seats in my size). I liked the way the Courdelay looked best on the hanger (a smooth but corded looking fabric). However, the Passeio, which are a combination of the Cadence fabric and the Bellisima fabric and are size zip, fit me best since the Cadence fabric gave me the stretch neccessary to fit my large calves. I ordered them in two sizes, since the bottom size just fits me in knee patch.
