Does anyone have any suggestions for relatively inexpensive full-seat breeches that aren’t so low-rise that I embarrass myself? I’m 5’9″, wear a 32L in breeches, with a 34″ inseam and a waist that’s so high it’s almost at my armpits. Let’s just say that this whole low-rise thing is… not flattering, to say the least. I need at least a 10″ rise, and I can’t seem to find any online that list what the rise is, unless it says “low-rise.”
Anyone have any first-hand experience to share? 🙂 I absolutely adore the look of the Pipers (especially that purply merlot color, drooooool), but they’re low-rise! 🙁
Kerritts has a decent rise to hide the tummy, not feel that they are in the armpits and a decent price point. Mine are knee patch since I’m a hunter rider but I’m sure you can find them in full seat also. I do like the smartpak piper breeches, as they are cute and fun, a good fit and a great price (especially if you get them on sale). They are a little lower than the Kerritts but still keep the tummy under control.
I would suggest that you call the seller, and explain your dilemma. Most of them will bend over backwards to help. Some have size charts on their websites with more detail than is provided in the catalog description.
