Plus Sized Products

14 Mar
The array of rider wear previously available in plus sizes has been very limited. We have hunted down a few options of shirts, breeches, and even coats to fit riders of all shapes and sizes. 
Shirts
Finding a shirt that is both comfy and flattering can be tough.  Below we have listed a few of our favorite shirts that we think you will find check both of those boxes!

royalmockThe Royal Highness Short Sleeve Zip Mock Neck Shirt   is a such a perfect for schooling, cross country, clinics, and even showing and it comes in Extra Large, 1X, 2X and 3X! It is great for summer riding because it is lightweight and breathable. Since it is made from microfiber polyester it wicks away moisture keeping you both dry and comfortable. It also features a stock tie loop in the back and a longer tail to tuck it in. Quarter zip closure can be worn zipped all the way for a clean show look or open for maximum cooling.

Noble Outfitters Ashley  Performance Shirt is the ultimate in breathability and comfort with an added bonus of being offered from size small to 2 XL! This shirt keeps you cool yet protected from the sun’s harmful rays with UPF rated fabric (50+). It is ultra-breathable with a stretch mesh back panel and powermesh under the arms to keep you comfortable without impeding your movement. The moisture-wicking Opti-Dry Technology keeps you even cooler by pulling moisture away from your skin.

From princess seam side panels for a slimming fit, to flat seams to reduce chaffing, you will enjoy every minute in this athletic shirt. A dropped back hem and reverse coil zipper on the front placket provides additional coverage. The reflective logo details add subtle touches to this sporty top. The white version features a stock tie loop at the back of the neck.


Breeches
Most breeches come in either S-XL or sizes 24-34. Those that come in 1x-3x or 36-38 are included below.

ovationslimSome of our favorite breeches for anyone needing a larger fit is the Ovation Celebrity Slim Secret Euroweave DX. These breeches are a fashion forward breech with a flattering fit and pocket design which make these a great value! These breeches are offered in sizes 38 to 42 featuring a secret tummy-flattening panel to give a smooth, flat look to hips and stomach! They come in both a full seat and knee patch option!

These super comfy breeches are made in Ovation’s most stretchy easy-to-wear woven fabric with Syn-Tec Stretch Suede seat. The Syn-Tec Suede seat is an easy to care for, stretch and grippy fabric. DX models are enhanced with Dri-Lex to keep you dry and comfortable by transporting moisture away from our body to the surface of the breech where it can easily evaporate. Features the Dri-Lex Tec-1 comfort bottom to help you stay cool & dry under your tall boots, two stylized side pockets, and belt loops.

KerritsflextightKerrits Flex Tight II Full Seat Tight is another great option!  The slimming design lines have the ability to make your butt look amazing. Who doesn’t want that?! They are available in sizes up to 2XL and the flat, wide waistband sits comfortably by the hips. Whether the saddle is wet, dry, hard or soft, Flex Tights never lose their traction. Besides the performance, the Durabreathe fabric provides lightweight coverage; paneled with needle-punched GripStretch. The flat seam construction makes these tights that much more comfortable to wear and won’t leave you worrying about chafing.

 

tcjackiecfsThe Trainer’s Choice Jackie are a super nice pair of breeches and are amongst the most comfortable breeches we’ve ever tried. We know you’ll love them too.

Crafted of fine-grade woven cotten. This super-comfortable sportswear fabric is perfect for riding. The lengthwise and sidewise elasticity of the fabric ensures a high degree of freedom of movement and an excellent fit.  They also allow plenty of room for hips!  Yay! Other great features of the fabric include:

  • permanent stretch
  • shape retention
  • durability
  • breathes actively
  • easy care-machine washable cold

Attractive and functional, these breeches feature a single straight zip pocket with concealed zipper, front zip with hook waist closure, five belt loops, Clarino full seat, and Velcro ankle closure.

Designed to provide European quality at U.S. prices. The relaxed fit and expert tailoring ensure your comfort whether you’re working around the barn or riding in the saddle. If you are used to paying $300+ for a superior pair of breeches, we encourage you to give these a try! These would be perfect for your next pair of dressage show breeches!


Show Coats
Most show coats are typically available in sizes up through 20, which use European sizing (you would go up two sizes from your typical dress size). We have picked out a coat that we think you will find both flattering and comfortable!

devon aire hunt

Devon Aire has both a Dressage Coat and a Hunt Coat that are economically priced and feature a very forgiving stretch. What really sets these coats apart is the s-t-r-e-t-c-h! It’s not a clingy or loose stretch like you’d see in some breeches. Instead, it’s a subtle, forgiving stretch that moves with you, but only when and where you need it. You won’t have to sacrifice comfort for a correct look any more. Even the full lining stretches!

 


 

Support
We get by with a little support from our friends!!  These guys are some of our favorite support products that we highly recommend everyone have under their riding apparel.

fitswunderbreechFITS Wunderbreech is a shape flattering blend of cotton, poly and Lycra in a capri length that smooths and hides what you’d prefer not be seen. FITS’ highly opaque blend helps fill cellulite lines and cover skin blemishes. Wunderbreech incorporates a seamless, gusseted crotch for maximum comfort. The capri style is cooler than full length designs that bulk under boots. And the longer length eliminates unsightly and uncomfortable panty and hem lines visible with traditional and knee length underwear.

Simply fit them into your breech like a hand into a glove, and pull both garments on at once – the difference will be remarkably apparent, but not transparent!wunderbreechresults

You’ll like them so much that you’ll want to wear them every time you ride. And they work with any breech, not just FITS. You’ll love the way breathable Wunderbreeches feel next to your skin, whether you’re wearing white breeches or not!
