How are breeches supposed to fit?

Breeches should fit comfortably without wrinkles or areas of baggy fabric that would detract from the appearance of the pant or cause friction for your skin. The legs should be snug but not so tight that they constrain. Men’s breeches are typically sold by waist size and inseam length.

How are riding pants supposed to fit?

Keep in mind: Breeches that come too low can bunch up uncomfortably and breeches that end too high can cause rubbing from the end seam. Ideally, you should measure your inseam to make sure your riding pants end below your boots, around ankle length. This will help reduce friction while in the saddle.

How can I stretch my breeches?

Lay your pants on a flat surface. Pour warm water into a sprayer and spray the water lightly on both sides of your pants. Carefully stretch out the pants by hand, and then put them on. Do some stretches while wearing the damp pants to stretch them out.

How do you shrink breeches?

The easiest way to shrink most types of pants is to put them in the dryer! You can also use a pot of boiling water, hot water in your washing machine, or a warm overnight soak to shrink your pants. If you need to shrink only a select area of your jeans, try using a hairdryer or an iron through a damp sheet.

Horse riding breeches are designed to stretch to allow for more freedom of movement. This allows riders to sit and ride more comfortably. Riders can now concentrate on performing and riding instead of pinching, chafing and sliding in the saddle.

Do breeches stretch over time?

Most breeches just can’t stretch this much and so they put a button/zip in the design to solve the problem. This amount of stretch is nothing for the fabrics that are used in riding tights and so the button/zip just isn’t needed.
