Just wondering if anyone knows how the sizing of jods compares to dress sizes? Been a while since I bought a pair
and a I'm bit out of touch


Been on one website which reckons a 32 inch waist = a size 18. Does that seem about right?

Well...I am a size 8 normally and I have to have a 10 in jods/breeches. I usually have Dublin but their newer styles are a bit big around the waist on me so need a belt with them. Perfect on the bum and thighs though...which means I've clearly got a fat arse since I last bought a pair


Mine are a 24 and that's supposed to be a size 10.

lol Scotsmare. That would be the obvious thing wouldn't it
I'm at work though, so no tape measure to hand. And I'm bored, so I'm internet shopping


Thanks both, looks like the range of sizes available has increased a bit since I last looked!

Should be working.....
As usual it isn't easy - they all seem to come up in different sizes depending on the make! My Dublin are definatley on the more generous side - I don't undo them to get on and off where as my Shires (same size) are on the snug side (especially after washing!)

AARGH! Why??? It drives me mad (I could do a whole rant on how much clothes sizing annoys me).

I'm losing weight at the moment, so I think I'm going to get some £10-ish ones from Robinsons - at least if they don't fit well, I won't have wasted much money, and I'll shrink out of them before I wear them out anyway lol.

There is a great shop on ebay that I get mine from - about £10 - 15 if you don't mind last years colours etc! They are shires etc so good makes. I get them for hacking etc I'll find the link if you want it.

I'm a 12 in trousers, and seem to be a 28 in jodhs at the moment. My usual problem is loose around the waist, tight on the bum, and loose on the legs...big booty, I guess!

Oooh, yes please, can I have the link


Spookypony - I have the opposite problem - "normal" waist + bum, small legs, massive hips. If I buy them to fit my waist/bum and end up straining the zips. Or if I buy them to fit my hips, they're loose everywhere else!

I have the same problem with jeans *sigh*
