Super cute but run VERY large!
I just received these in the mail and was SO excited to try them on; I love high-waist breeches and finding knee-patch ones in fun colors that aren’t several hundred dollars a pair is a bit challenging. Unfortunately these seem to run several sizes larger than most breeches and a next size down isn’t available for me— so sad!! I’m a petite but curvy 5’4 (approx 115/120 lb atm) and wear 26’s in most low-rise breeches (tailoreds, smartpak) but have an issue with the thighs and seat being a bit snug or fitting nicely while the waist is too big especially when I sit; thus the need for high-waist breeches, they just fit my shape better!
I just got a pair of high-waist Hadleys that fit ok (size 24 with a bit of gapping in the waist still but probably not big enough elsewhere to size down) and have several pair of high-waist Dada Sport breeches in size 24 that fit perfectly (but are $300 a pair, ouch!). These Horze breeches in a 24 were too big EVERYWHERE; probably 2 sizes too large in the waist and 1 to maybe 2 sizes in the seat/thighs. I was going to exchange them but alas… the smallest size available is the 24. I think they will work better for riders with a different body shape than my hourglass one— those of you who they fit well please enjoy them! They’re super cute and seem well-made.
