    Default Tuffrider Piaffe Fullseat Breeches, any thoughts?

    I am interested in the white ones with the grey full seat for showing.
    I like the idea, since my white breeches end up with a black- ish seat anyway. Read somewhere that the grey will bleed into the white during washing.
    Has anybody here experienced that??

    I have the tan ones, not the white, so I don't know about the bleeding. My take on these breeches is that they are OK but not great.

    Not bad for the price, but the fabric is a little strange - kind of stiff-, the full seat isn't grippy, and they aren't flattering. I do like the wide waistband and the price though. Wouldn't buy another pair.

    they don't bleed. the fabric does feel like a well starched shirt (not in a good way)
    oh, and they're see through.

    I have them and mine bled horribly after the first washing. I can't show in them now, and find the rough fabric isn't super comfortable for schooling, either. I loved the concept of the white with grey seat (mine have an almost black seat so maybe that's why they bled?) but was sadly disappointed.

    The fabric is really thin and they run small. Glad I was able to try them on before I made a bad purchasing decision.

    Thanks for all the feedback! Looks like I will stay away from them
