    Piper Plus Full Seat Breeches by SmartPak is rated 3.9559 out of 5 by 68.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I love these breeches! I'm so glad I tried one more time! It has been so hard to find breeches that fit my older, apple-shaped, plus-size figure. I have tried so many breeches and settled for too tight in the leg, or too baggy in the seat or, too low a rise, or Ack! just send them back! I wanted to be able to wear something cute and fashionable, sturdy and practical. I ordered the military green in a 40, just to be a bit conservative to start. I may try the 38 next, but these fit well if just a squinch loose in the waist. If you have an small waist-to-hip ratio, these probably won't work. The material has a substantial feel, which I love, and finally! a decent mid-rise that doesn't feel like it's going to fall off, show a plumber's crack, or have unsightly bulges. I can see me ordering a new color, one every month. Finally, cute, cute, cute breeches that don't cost a fortune and fit ME!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the fabric, hate the fit. I ordered these breeches and loved the fabric. Unfortunately the fit is very strange. They are really low rise in the back, since they are plus sized, one would think they would need to put more length in the butt area but it barely covers my butt. If I bent over, I would definitely have an plumbers butt issue. If you order these breeches make sure you have a supply of low rise thong underwear because you are going to need to wear them with these breeches. I wished they would have fit better because I would have ordered a bunch in different colors. The front of the breeches fit fine it was just too low cut in the back.. Smartpak please change the fit of these breeches and I would buy several in each color !!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Low Rise for a Plus Size I bought these and sent them back. They were great quality and super cute! But they were just to low in the back. I'd read the reviews saying as much but thought I'd give them a shot. I'm a 2X in street clothes and the rise was just too low for me. Very disappointed because I really wanted to keep them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elegant Breeches, but not for me. I ordered these in taupe/mint and they arrived yesterday. I selected the size 38 based on the fitting chart. Make no mistake, these breeches have a very elegant look with the double closure and the wide waistband. The quality is excellent. However, much to my dismay, the rise is too low. I had difficulty closing the front, yet there was a big gap in back. I did not expect this result. Given that my other breeches are size 36 but with a higher rise and they fit me perfectly, I suppose the fault is with my body and not the breeches. Sadly, I returned them today.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Colors! I ordered a pair if these in taupe/mint. They got here yesterday and they are beautiful. I will say this though, I feel that they run very true to size. I know some state that they run larger but I have to say for a plus size breech that the size chart they provide on here is accurate. I thought they fit well. Anyway.... the fabric is fantastic and seems really breathable but still durable. I'll review again after I ride in them. I definitely recommend!**I will note though, if you really want to hide certain areas, go with a darker color!**

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breech These are quite possibly the most comfortable full seat breech I've purchased. The lower leg feels like a sock, and theres NO bunching inside your boot! I highly recommend these breeches, I'm going to go purchase another pair now!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product Nice product, great material and seems like it would have lasted long, HOWEVER- the waist was enormous in proportion to the hips. Had to send it back, and I was sad to do it! Any smaller would be too small in the hips and calves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wsnted It took a couple of tries to get the size right, but these pants look great, are full seat, and have the mesh calves that fit better in tall boots. The price is reasonable, and shipping and returns are always FREE!I'll be a returning customer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stylish look! I bought these a few weeks ago and really love the look . It is very difficult to find plus sized riders clothing and I appreciate Smartpak for recognizing us. The breeches fit great. Thanks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great waistline for plus size! I have several pair, and my only complaint for the full seat is that they get a bit saggy in the bottom.Fit is accurate, quality is spot on swith surprisingly strong seams.Love the colors, but plaid should be offered. I don't see why not!Great price for a great full seat, plus size riders give it a go!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE,LOVE Super comfy!!!!! Love all the different colors.... My only request would be to run the pipping down the side of the leg and make them in white with black pipping (for showing dressage)..... They do run big according to the size chart.... Love the price too... Fixing to order me some more....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features I purchased these a couple of weeks ago, and while I had to return them due to size, the overall breech is great. The material is very nice and the piping on them is looks great on the material. If I can find the right size, these will be a breech I will own in several colors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these breeches!! best fitting breeches I've found in a long time. Fits curves perfectly. My only wish is that rise was a little lower. Otherwise they are a great purchase

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Breeches I have a hard time finding attractive breeches in my size. These breeches are well made and make me feel good riding in them. I do think they run large though, but I am happy to find them and will order again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these breeches! I bought these breeches about a month ago. I wear a size 10-12 jean and I ordered these in a 38 because I'm paranoid of my pants being too small and unflattering. They are probably 2 sizes too big but I kept them anyway and just recently ordered a 34. The pants are true to size, I'm just terrible at ordering. I love riding in these, they are so comfortable! The fabric is a good weight, a medium weight. We had some hot summer days here last month and they are a little warm when it's 95 degrees, but wearing any pants in that heat is. I haven't worn them in the cold yet but I'm excited to see how they feel when it gets into the 20's. Since mine are so big, I'm constantly pulling them up so these would benefit from a belt, but they stay put when riding just above my belly button. They also wash well, I hung them to dry and needed to wear them the next morning as well so I stuck them in the dryer for 10 minutes to dry out the suede and they were good to go. Love the army green (really a brown color, as shown in the picture description) and black that I got and am excited for my new merlot pair to come. I will continue to order more pairs as I continue to lose weight from dieting and riding again. Definitely recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best breeches around! Love the low rise! I have to say that I'm obsessed with these breeches! I have 6 pair in total and just ordered number 7. I school, show, and work around the barn in them and I haven't found a better fit or more comfortable pair. Reading through the comments about the fit...I have to say that I would NOT buy these if they were midrise. Smartpak offers other breeches that are midrise (the Bradley) and the piper is the only one that come in low rise. I am very much a plus size rider and am so grateful that smartpak offers great apparel for my shape. I show dressage and hunters and love the versatility of these pants. If smartpak decides to take some of these comments under consideration, maybe offer a mid and low rise of these breeches? But please do not get rid of the low rise! It's taken me YEARS to find riding pants that I feel this comfortable in! Thank you smartpak for having so many great options available, keep em coming!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird fit I made a previous review of a pair of these breeches that were a size too big. I ordered a size down and they still don't fit at all. They fit my waist, but are baggy in the leg, especially my knees. And like pretty much everyone else has said...the rise is horrible. The back of my undies hang out and the full seat doesn't even come half way up my backside. Very unfortunate because the quality is there, and I bet if they fit me they'd be really comfy. I love the lining in the pockets! Overall...they're super cute, but after two tries...they don't fit me. :( and I wasted my $10 off coupon on these. Double sad face.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches!! These are my fourth pair of the full seats. I loove them! They are very comfortable and flattering. I'm looking forward to buying more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great breeches. Rise needs work though! I absolutely love these breeches, Thank you SmartPak to catering to the fuller fillies! Great colors and seat. Great material. Love the soft lower leg. Huge downfall is the rise. Even with a belt these gape in the back really bad. I higher rise would be wonderful and I wouldn't have to keep adjusting myself while mounted.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice breeches, but... I've had these breeches for a few months now.Here are what I love about them:-Grippy seat (almost comparable to my deerskin seat breeches)-Nice stretchy fabric-Sock bottom-Look - love the front pocket style and contrast seat and stitching-I don't find them to be too low rise, in fact I love the fitHere are the things that make me not so crazy for them-Fabric pills and fuzzes easily. Where my jacket hits my breeches it's caused pilling, and this is starting to happen to the rest of the fabric. I wash these on delicates in cold water and hang to dry. I'm not hard on breeches-Because the leg doesn't narrow immediately from the hips they look sloppy since there are wrinkles all around the back bottom of my thighs and at my knees. I want a breech to skim my leg smoothly. I would not show in these b/c of this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great breech I've ridden in these twice and I have to say they are my new favorite pants. Will be ordering many more colors. I have breeches from just about every manufacturer out there, many double this price and I like these way better!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic quality, low-rise ruins it. Is SmartPak listening? Scrolling through these reviews, I see a common thread..."great breeches, hate the low rise." These breeches have so many AMAZING features (color choices, fit through leg/thigh/seat, quality), it seems such a shame that they gap so horribly in the waist and sit so low. They fit beautifully and I love them until I get in the saddle. I've tried a number of belts, but always have a bulge in the back where the pants gap. It's not fun to worry whether everyone can see your underwear! I really love these breeches, or I wouldn't be so passionate. I've just bought my 4th pair for schooling, makes me sad that I'd think twice about wearing these in a show or at an event. For the price, they are terrific...please rethink the low rise option. Argh!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love these breeches, but... I am now on my second pair of Piper full seat breeches. I love, love, love (and am slightly obsessed with) my Piper Knee Patch breeches but try as I might I just cannot love the full seats the same. The seat is grippy, the rise is perfect for me, love the pockets, the material, everything EXCEPT- both pairs I have ordered the first time I rode in them the crotch seam split, both Charcoal w/ Light Grey. I can not go up another size, they would be baggy and wad up around my waist, so it must be a manufacturing defect, right? Buyer beware, I really wish these would work for me, but I can't keep on paying so much for breeches that don't last more than 1 ride!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't take the bad reviews to heart! I seriously got obsessed with getting a pair of these breeches. I spent months browsing them, staring at them, fantasy carting them. And in that time, I went through and really read all the reviews and responses on fit and whatnot.I have to tell you, I took the reviews too seriously. I wound up buying a pair 3 sizes too large, bought and returned sizes until the right ones came along. The reviews made me all paranoid. Thank goodness for SmartPak's return policy!I'm not really sure why there are so many negative reviews for these breeches. If you mosey over to the reviews for the non-plus size Piper f/s breeches, everything is 4 and 5 star. Fit runs a little large (as opposed to the plus-size where fit runs a little small). So maybe what Smartpak did was not fully account for the "average" plus size person's body type? I don't have the problems described in the reviews, but I'm also taller and larger build with less of the "plus" to my "plus size"-edness.Anyway, my only recommendations for those interested in these breeches is to make sure you measure yourself and check their size chart. And if you live in a warmer climate area (such as I do), don't expect these to be the coolest summer riding. I can still wear them in the summer weather but they seriously are not cooling. Also, you probably do want to wear them with a belt.Quality is awesome!. Love the pockets. Love the suede. Look the style. I seriously want 2 or 3 more colors. They seriously will plant your butt in the saddle too. Some f/s are only f/s by look, not by function- not these breeches. I wish they came in white so I could use them for shows (hint, hint - with med. grey seat - hint, hint).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best breeches I have ever had! These breeches fit perfectly! I have never found a pair that have fit so good and have come in so many colors. I wear a size 20 in jeans and wear a size 42 in these breeches (they run a little small). I personally like the lower rise of these breeches (just bellow the belly button). Smartpak: Please make a show version of these breeches (white please!).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Full Seat Breeches Great quality but very stiff and material too warm for the summertime. I think I will enjoy more in the summer. Colors are great!
