Delzani Breeches, StyleFIT design...

You will love the consistent fit of our StyleFIT breeches design. We use this same design fit across all our breeches, so you can rest assured there should be minimal difference between the same size in any of our styles, considering standard manufacturing allowance.

We offer two different waist band heights across our breeches range:

Mid-Rise Waist. These are a standard rise design, which means the waistband is not sitting too low on your hips, or sitting too high.... they are just right :)

Dressage Waistband. Our Dressage style breeches have a higher waistband around the hips and back for added support and the waistband then reduces down to a standard rise waistband at the front.

Delzani Breeches, how do they compare in sizing?

Delzani breeches & jodhpurs use standard "Australian" sizing and the feedback from our customers is that they are in-line with the sizing used in many traditional brands. 

We are all noticing a trend in clothing labels to suddenly downsize sizing, pairs of jeans that used to be size 12, start being labelled as size 10 to boost our self confidence! Accordingly, we recommend using our size guides as your best reference.

If you are an in-between size or at the top end of your size, we always suggest going up a size for better fit and comfort.

Size Guide: Breeches/Jodhpurs

At Delzani, we have taken a very simple approach to help you get the right size. We think the best approach is to measure a pair of breeches that fits you perfectly already - then cross-reference that to our size chart. Ignore the size label on any breeches you already have, use it as a guide only - its probably not much help if its an imported brand!!

Step 1: Pick out a nice pair of riding breeches that already fits you. 

Find an existing pair of breeches that currently fits you nicely (ideally find two pairs of breeches as a comparison), lay the breeches out on a flat surface. We use standrard rise in our breeches, so please ensure you are measuring a similar standard/mid rise in your own breeches. 

Step 2: Measure the waist

Lay the breeches flat and measure in a straight line across the waistband as shown below.  Refer to this as Measurement 'A'

Step 3: Measure the hips

Measure your breeches at the widest point across the hips as shown below. Refer to this as Measurement 'B'

Sizing information is provided by manufacturer and does not guarantee a perfect fit - no two bodies are the same. If you are in-between sizes on our size chart, we always recommend going up a size with breeches, rather than going down.  

If you have any questions - just drop us an email with your 'A' and 'B' measurements (and height).

Size Guide: Tights

At Delzani, we have taken a very simple approach to help you get the right size. We think the best approach is to measure a pair of stretch tights that fits you perfectly already - then cross-reference that to our size chart. Ignore the size label on any tights you already have, use it as a guide, but its probably not much help if its an imported brand!!

Step 1: Pick out a nice pair of stretch tights that fits you. 

Find an existing pair of tights that currently fits you nicely (ideally measure two pairs of tights as a comparison), lay the tights out on a flat surface. 

Step 2: Measure the waist width
