I am in dire need of a backup pair of showmanship pants. I've never had much luck with the Hobby Horse pants fitting me so I went to Rods specifically to try on the BerryFit pants. They. Are. Awful. As another reviewer noted, the material on the chocolate brown pants is so thin it is almost see-through. It is a scratchy 100% polyester with no stretch, so the fit is very unforgiving...which is compounded by how thin the fabric is. Be prepared to see very lump and bump, even wearing spanx or pantyhose underneath...and even every wrinkle of the seam allowances in the pants. These pants are also VERY high waisted. Not the "normal" high waist you expect in show pants. If you're familiar with the Hobby Horse PMS show pant, these sit a good 2 inches higher than those. I'm short-waisted to begin with so, no joke, these nearly came up to my bra strap. Maybe they'd work for a 6 foot tall girl who wears a size 0 and doesn't mind going commando to avoid VPL, but these pants sure didn't work for me - 5'6", size 6 or 8, athletic build, and definitely NOT going commando at the horse show. Given how high quality BerryFit's custom work is, I was shocked at the poor quality of these pants.

I had to buy two pairs of these pants because the first pair was my regular size it did not fit. The second pair I bought word gigantic hug for me I had to have them altered severely. Sizes do not run close to normal pants. I do not like these at all.

Very disappointed. I had high hopes from the Berry Fit name. But the pants that arrived were very thin, when I held them up to look at them I could see right through them, and they were dark brown. Also had defects. The fit was good except the waistband nearly came to armpits LOL seems all showmanship pants are made super high waisted,. If someone could just mass produce a nice fitting, high quality showmanship pant with some stretch they would have a goldmine!
