Do you remember the old horse show shirts? Those 100% cotton, stiff, un-ironable, boxy, bunchy shirts you wore as a kid? Tuck them into your breeches? Sure, and get that bunched up look around your hips.
Thank God for modern fabrics.
Check out the HorzeTM women's technical show shirt! I got a size Medium that I'm giving away courtesy of Horze.com. I have not tried it on, since it will be a giveaway, but I can tell you it runs standard size, about an 8-10 ladies.
Read to the bottom -- and you'll see the giveaway signup instructions (they're easy).
Here is my assessment of the shirt...
- It's nicely fitted -- you'll see in one of the photos below that it has a seam on each side and a "fit and flair" look. I think it will be very flattering.
- The fabric is a great weight -- substantive enough to keep a shape and hide figure imperfections, but light enough and "high-tech" enough to keep you cool.
- Short sleeves! It'll be fine when coats are waived.
- The logo. I'm not big on logos, and while I love Pikeur they are so overpriced! I like the fact that Horze has a cool logo, and this crisp and sleek embroidery running on the side is both cool and smart -- you didn't pay $179 for an elegant white show shirt, you paid $39.99!
- Oh. It's 39.99!
|You can't see it in this photo but the shirt is fitted slightly and I think it will flatter.|

- Your funniest, most noteworthy, or most embarrassing show clothing memory. My worst show clothing memory (as an example) is having to buy a men's showjacket in high school because ladies/girls jackets did not really come big enough to fit me (I was heavier then) and I had/have loooong arms. The only jacket that worked was an ugly plaid, and it made me look like a boy.
