    I second Kerrits. I have their ribbed breeches too, which are my favorite. They don't show any lumps or bumps and I can wear them in pretty much any weather and be comfortable. Not all of their sizes are created equal though.

    I'm personally a fan of the new trend in low rise breeches, given that I have a super short waist. Therefore "low rise" breeches sit comfortable at/just above my natural waist which is wonderful as "regular rise" breeches could serve as breeches and sports bra for my body type!

    It sounds like what more people really need is for manufacturers to note the actual measurement of the rise, instead of a semi-arbitrary classification.

    Totally OT, but I've always wondered why men's pants come in waist/inseam sizes, while women's come in a numerical size -- considering that there's probably more waist/ hip/ buttock/ inseam variation in women's bodies than in men's. At least (some) breeches come in a waist size!!

The effect has caused me and and my friend to call them "The colostomy breeches" as the fit at the waist but then go slack around the stomach- it's like you've got as much room for your belly as your butt! Seriously ill concieved. I use them because you cant' really see it when my jacket is on, but I won't even walk around in them at shows- I untack the horse quick and then go directly to the tack stall to change ASAP. they are THAT bad. But I do like the weight of the fabric at least.
    This is EXACTLY the way my Ariat Pro Circuits fit. I thought they such a great score on ebay for $70...then they arrived, and I tried them on...
