Hi all,
Not sure if I am posting this in the correct forum but couldnt see a more appropriate one!!

Having returned to riding after a long break, I managed to squeeze myself into a pair of jodhpurs but I am finding it hard to find longer length t-shirts/sweat tops suitable for riding because I like the tops longer length to hide my belly & bum!!
Can anyone recommend any good equestrian shops/websites to try that cater for taller women? Or is it just a case of high street shops and making do!!

I particularly like the rugby top style.

If you are a fan of pink/blue, then have a look at Katie Price's range (ha, never thought I'd be writing this), they do items in very long length.

I just buy over sized polo shirts or long length tops from primark. In winter my coat covers everything anyway :)

H&M and Primark supply all my upper body day to day riding clothes!

I refuse to spend money on something that will soon be stained grey or brown with who knows what!!

I just bought some "Fat Face" surf ware tank tops in the sale in the Manchester shop, which are long and ideal for riding. I know exactly what you mean though, I am constantly on the lookout for stomach covering tops. Most horsey ones esp polo styles are too short therefore very unflattering. Lands End make are also cut longer and i have asome of theirs.

Ditto this - i got some 3/4 length sleeved tops in really nice colours from H&M all long in length. Cheap but fit the job well. I love rugby tops but all the riding ones are about £30!!! I'd wait for a sale or see if some turn up in H&M/Primark/Dunnes/Tesco/Asda etc ;)

Splash have some fantastic rugger shirts in their clearance section - apparently that are labelled as extra large and are infact size 12 - but as a result they are half price at £14.99. I've brought two and they are great I like them cus they cover my bum, they are well made and wash brilliantly.:D

I'm exactly the same, it's not my tummy I'm concerned with covering, more my ever expanding backside! Most of my polo t-shirts, fleeces and sweatshirts come from the men's department because they are a lot more generous with the length. Unfortunately that makes them quite baggy and shapeless.

Occasionally I'll find the odd women's tops in shops like H & M and Primark that fit my criteria of covering my *rse!

There is a company called Fuller Fillies that does caters for larger riders, they might have some nice tops.

I have found the gents polo shirts at Tesco are good wobbly bit cover'ers and still cover when sitting.
Cheap too they were doing 2 for £10 a while back, and they are very comfortable too..

Same, I have some of the tesco mens t-shirts think they were 2 for £5. They do also often have rugby shirts too. The quality is very good too :)
