    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great piper breech! Wonderful as usual! Comfortable, true to size, and adorable colors to boot!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Love them! They don't rise all the way up my ribs, they sit just right on my waist
    Date published: 2016-10-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love with these breeches. Seriously. These breeches are awesome. A great buy for the price and so very very comfortable. My only tiny complaint is that the rise is just a touch low for me. Gaps in the back a bit for those of us with a little junk in the truck if you get my drift :). BUT, these are well worth it and a great breech.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favorite riding pants Recently purchased these breeches as a birthday gift to myself and I must say as someone who absolutely hates riding pants, I love them! I ride only western but have bad back problems, the constriction and pressure points of jeans when riding would always causes the nerves in my back to swell up. With these breeches I don't have that problem. They give you the comfort and flexibility of riding pants but to me are much more stylish, especially as someone who rides western, I bought a navy pair and you would almost think they are jeans. Only problem I had were that the sizes run big in my opinion, measured myself the way they said to and ended up getting a pair 4 sizes too big, even now with my correct size I feel like the waist is a little loose even though the leg area fits great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These didn't fit my shape properly, too low in the crotch, possibly because of lack of room for my booty. ha. The quality of these breeches is really nice though and I loved the fabric. Unfortunately I'm just the wrong shape for them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Breeches! I LOVE these breeches! I now own seven pairs of the Piper Plus breeches-- they're just that great! The cut is excellent for plus size breeches; I've found that other breeches I've tried are really straight cut, and these are definitely meant to fit curves. The colors are cute, the material is a nice, heavy weight and holds up pretty well, and I love the back pockets! They're the best schooling breeches I've ever had and they're a fantastic value. (Now I'm just waiting for them to make Piper Plus show breeches...)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In deep Piper Love This is my 3rd pair of pipers and I am in mad love with them :) I actually like my Pipers better than my Tailored Sportsmans. I bought this pair to be part of my cross country wardrobe. They are comfortable, wear extremely well ,are flattering to my post partum body shape ( 2 two legged foals back to back did me in !) They clean up very nicely even after a mud run. you can't go wrong with Pipers!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't love styling I really, really wanted to love these breeches, but the front zipper is unflattering on me, a size 16 rider. Also, the contrast piping is very distracting and brings attention to the back pockets, which isn't an area that all of us want to highlight. That being said, the fabric and fit (other than the front zipper) is quite nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, slow shipping The breeches are awesome. I had to return them to get a smaller pair and it took much longer than I wanted it to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great colors It is nice someone is carrying plus size breeches in lighter colors other than black. I could live without the pockets though.
    Date published: 2016-07-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the look of them. I had to take them in at the waist. Big around waist and almost too tight in the legs. They are very comfortable, but fall down. I'm constantly pulling them up my legs and then pulling up around my waist.
    Date published: 2016-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for schooling shows! I bought the tan & black breeches to use as show breeches, & I totally love them! Not to mention SmartPak was AMAZING in customer service! They were on back order & weren't expected to be in before my show. However, they were shipped a week before my show & I was able to have peace of mind! This was not my first pair of Pipers, however. I just keep coming back for more!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality, bad fit. If these breeches fit better, I would buy a dozen! The material is comfortable and the overall quality is very good. I love that they have nice deep pockets and the Euroseat is really comfortable. Unfortunately, they don't fit me very well. I have a relatively small waist and larger hips and thighs, and these fit great up to my hips. But there's a huge gap at the waist which makes them sag terribly! If you are pear or hour-glass shaped, plan on getting these breeches altered. If you have a good tailor, it's worth it.

    Date published: 2016-05-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found my new go-to breech! I absolutely love these breeches! The fabric is thick enough that it hides the unsightly bumps in my legs, but they are cool in warm weather too. The fit is fantastic; I am a typical hourglass shape, and they fit through my waist, hips, and thighs. I'd say these are true to size; I have another brand of breeches in the same size that fit identically. I love the colors they come in; I got them in the charcoal/lt. grey and they are so versatile! The euroseat took a little getting used to, but it is very flattering and now I find it comfortable. I'll definitely be ordering more of these! :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rise Too Low at Rear, Even for a Short Girl Let's face it, Short + Round = a tough fit in equestrian wear. I am five feet tall, and wear street size jeans in a 14 or 16 currently. The size 38 Piper Plus Knee Patch Breech fit wonderfully around my hips and thighs. Sadly, even though I am so short, the rise was too short in the rear. Perhaps part of it is that I have a pear-shaped figure, and the breeches gap in the rear. I didn't want to wear them with a belt, but I found a stretchy one that keeps the breeches mostly from sliding down. Sometimes the crotch falls down a few inches when I am walking. It's OK in the saddle. The pockets are generously sized. There is a piece of elastic sewn into the center seam. I was worried the elastic might be irritating or rub but I don't even notice it. The fabric feels nice against my skin, looks flattering, and stretches really well for riding. The knee patches are slightly grippy. Of course the legs are too long for my height, but the soft stretchy material below the knee doesn't feel too bad inside a boot, even bunched up to make the leg shorter. If these had a waist in them, and were higher rise in the rear, I would have loved them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute breeches This is my second pair of pipers. They are great in the saddle and I love the color options. I didn't give them 5 stars because the crotch does sag some on me. I wish smart pal would widen the legs or shorten the rise. Overall cute breeches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need them in white! I have 6 pairs of piper breeches (4 pairs knee patch, 2 full seat) and am dying to have them in white! any chance you guys could make that happen!?
    Date published: 2016-02-24
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Look but Fit Needs a Re-Design I ordered these in Black with White Piping in a size 36.....I love the look and fabric however the fit needs some work. They keep falling down as the waist is extremely big and mis-proportioned to the rest of the breeches. This non-curvy design sort of defeats the purpose of the Plus offering. I am going to have them tailored with 2 pleats in the back but hopefully the designers will rework the fit. If so, I would definitely purchase additional pairs.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the right fit for me Well to be fair these pants are great. Nice quality, great colors, They are just not the right fit for my SHORT self. I wish they had. I loved them as soon as a way them.
    Date published: 2016-02-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Riding Pants Ever! I needed a pair of riding pants so I purchased 1 pair and liked that the Piper Plus Breeches came in my size and looked really nice. I loved them so much that later I purchased 2 more pair and have loved them so much that I wear them around town, to school, not just for riding. They are warm, durable, stretchy and are cut generously to fit the curvy equestrian lady. I highly recommend these - they are reasonably priced and are a great value.
    Date published: 2016-01-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The fit is comfortable and easy to ride in. This is my second pair, I find I go to my Pipers more than my other breeches. They wash well, dry in no time and are comfortable to ride in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breeches for us Fuller Fillies I love my new breeches. I had to return for a smaller size. They run a little big which is great, because not all of us ladies are the same.
