SECTION A: Full Hour Glass & Pear Shape

You need breeches that allow for the hips but also come in at the waist. Some brands (like Equetech) have this kind of shaping built into their breeches. If you are average-short in height these will be a good length too. For the taller rider you may find the Shaper & denim breeches from Equetech too short. However the HKM & Montar breeches are a great length for the average-taller rider.

If you like a pull on legging then these can be good too as the stretch in most legging material gives around your hip/bum area but still comes back at the waist. Equetech’s new Inspire Riding Tights are becoming a firm favourite at Boudica HQ thanks to thier high quality and non-see-through fabric which is really stretchy and comfortable. If you like the denim look then the new HKM Limoni full seat leggings are really great.

Montar breeches are really great quality and certainly worth the slightly higher price tag. They feature a flattering high waist as well as lovely soft and stretchy material for comfort and a good fit. They have a nice long leg which is great for the taller rider.

HKM breeches again are really great quality and sure to last a long time. They have a lovely stretchy material as well as a good length of leg for the average-taller rider. They also have some lovely features on the pockets for that extra bit of glamour in your outfit! Go for a size up for HKM>
