Dri-Lex Lowrise Full Seat Breeches
English Casual Apparel



Manufacturer: Ovation
Model: Dri-Lex Lowrise Full Seat Breeches
Category: English Casual Apparel

Purchase: I purchased these NWOT on ebay for 25.99. I bought them for schooling dressage in.

Likes: These are a mocha color which is very nice, but a little hard to match anything to. They are very well constructed. Stitching seems good, seems are tight, wearing well so far. Material seems to repel dirt, hay and hair. The dri-lex lining seems to do it's job, I have not had any problems with it.

Dislikes: They are too low rise for me. I am a mom of two and although I am in good shape without extra fat I just don't want my mid section showing. These ride right on the hip bones and are at least 2.5 inches below my belly button. When you ride the front comes up more due to the position but when you get off you have a front wedgy until you readjust. Also the material is not especially stretchy. I have a pair of ribbed Irideon and Kerrits which are much stretchier and more comfortable. When I get on I find that I have to pull the legs up to give me enough material in the hip and thigh area. There is a seam up the front of the leg that is irritating (although attractive). I have worn them half a dozen times and they have bagged out quite a bit. In my case this was good because I thought they were too tight when I got them. I probably needed the next size up. I wear a size 6 pants and ordered the 26R, maybe the 28 would not have been so low.

Quality: Very well constructed. Like I said the material is resistant to hair, hay and dirt. Seams are tight and well sewn. good quality workmanship.

Summary: I would not buy these again. I got a great deal on them and they will work for schooling. They are more comfortable now that they are bagging out and conforming to my shape, but they are too low rise and not very comfortable, seems are irritating and not enough stretch in the right spots.
