Lately I have been reminded that it is near impossible for tall girls like me to find pants! Especially jeans. I am 6 feet tall and have always had trouble finding pants that fit right. It’s gotten even harder as I’ve grown older and am no longer a size 2! At one point I really was a size 2 tall. Get it? Too Tall? [bah!]
Many stores don’t even offer their pants with extra length, which makes me super sad considering stores have petite sizes much more often! There’s some stores that have long’s which are STILL too short for me! Over the years I’ve had to find places that I rely on to find good quality pants that are long enough for me. So this is for all you tall ladies out there! The search is over because I will give you my top 4 favorite places to find long pants!
1. New York & Company
First up is New York and Company. I tend to find some great staple pieces here that I can really build with. Two of my favorite jeans I’ve ever had are NY&C and they were both SUPER long!!! I also like their high wasted jeans because they seem to tuck everything in. A great thing about this store is that often times they actually have the long’s in store, which is SO rare. I just ordered two pairs of dress pants from here and they should be arriving next week! They even have long yoga pants which my mom loves! The price point is usually very affordable because there always seems to be a sale going on. The jeans here are definitely my recommendation for my tall sistahs out there.
In previous posts I’ve shared my love for ASOS. It is THE best! This is an online store, which is a bummer since you can’t try stuff on before you buy it, but they have a great return policy. I love ASOS because they have an entire Tall Collection. This isn’t just pants either, they have dresses, shirts, everything in tall’s! The prices are pretty affordable for the most part. I really appreciate their dresses that are made extra long, rather than buying a dress that looks cute online but then makes me look like a hoochie mama in real life. That’s no fun. So check out ASOS and their amazing Tall Collection.
I have been shopping at EXPRESS ever since I was like 12! I used to always buy my dress clothes from here. The best thing to get here in long’s is their dress pants and jeans. They fit really well without having weird pulling and creases that seems to always happen with dress pants. The only bummer with EXPRESS is that they don’t keep any pant sizes above 12 in the store usually. Their longs are the perfect length, usually just hitting the bottom of my heel. Sometimes they tend to be bit pricey, but I have found that their clothes are good quality. I had my dress pants and skirts from them for years!
4. Long Tall Sally
My friend Kellie (who is also 6 feet) introduced me to Long Tall Sally. They only have four stores in the U.S. and more in the UK, Canada and Spain. So online is where to shop with them. Everything they sell is for women 5’8″ and taller, and shoe sizes 10-15. It’s nice to know that someone out there is making clothes specifically for ME! I would say their prices aren’t too bad, but pants and dresses tend to be a little more. There’s a ton to choose from and their size selection is awesome! I feel like anyone that is tall could find something that will work for them, they seem to have everything a tall girl could want.
Hopefully I’ve given hope to all you tall gals out there in need of some clothes. Go on a shopping spree and get some clothes that are actually long enough for once!
Anyone else that’s tall have some recommendations for the rest of us giants?
