Yes!! I need a 37″ inseam so I can find those in exactly one store. Which usually dedicates most its space to ugly clothes and what basically amounts to a Mrs Big & Tall. I usually just order my pants from their website because at least they have more selection!

My MOH is 5’9″, slender and busty. She has trouble finding clothes that fit.

Yes. I can only buy pants at NY&Co cuz their tall pants fit perfectly. I love high boots & just ignore how there’s so much room and that you can actually see my socks looking down at them from my angle. I’m happy tall and thin.

Im nearly 6 foot and have trouble buying long enough trousers and tops. In the UK we have topshop tall section….the best ever!! I can get lovely fashionable clothes in my size!! And topshop usually are a bit more aimed towards thinner girls anyway.

Oh, definitely! I’m pear shaped, so I need something that comes in quite tight at the waist and covers the butt and thigh area, but most dresses I find for pear-shaped women are also designed for shorter women, so the waist doesn’t fall at my waistline and they end up being really short. All of my dressy work pants are too big in the waist because I buy the ‘tall’ ones and they also seem to run a bit big in the waist area.

My main problem is shoes though – I wear a narrow size 11 shoe. I have to order most of my shoes online!

I’m tall, but not super tall so I am usually okay finding pants(though after a few washes they all seem to look stupidly short on me). It’s the shirts I have problems with! I am very skinny so usually a small will work, except they are always too short in the torso and the sleeves are always too tiny also. It is a huge pain! Attempting to go up a size doesn’t help. It just makes the shirt look baggier.

I always have to wear shirts under my shirt because everything is cut too short. If I reach up or bend over, you can see everything!

Skirts and dresses are usually cut too short also. I didn’t even think I was all that tall.

@FoxyBride14:  The boots thing!!! Yes I have the exact same problem!!! My calves are way too small – but 2 years ago I found a pair of Sketchers boots – and they are the zip up on the side and then string ties around the back and top. They are the perfect boots! I am sure I will keep them forever and wish I had more than 1 pair. I will see if I can find a link.

HERE are my boots that I posted about!!! They are awesome! No need to worry about them falling down on my calves – which is super annoying – great winter boot with the tread. Stylish to wear with jeans in the fall and spring and super comfortable and affordable – now if I could find you a link to buy them….

Okay – you can get them on e-bay around $80-90 and are called Grand Jams Unlimited Boots by Skechers.

@FoxyBride14:  Yeah, finding jeans in a size 2 long or 2 extra long is not fun (except for celebrating that I wore a size 2 pre-pregnancy!)

I like AE jeans (though sometimes their longs are too short), and Charlotte Russe has the best selection of extra-long length, IMHO.

@FoxyBride14:  

I get all of my jeans from The Buckle because Miss Me’s have inseams up to 37” which is perfect for me because I’m 5’9” and a size 3 in jeans. It’s hard to find something small enough that isn’t like capris! For dress pants, Maurices has awesome lengths but they run a little big. I usually wear a 0 there which seems really weird to me.  As far as boots go, I’ve had a lot of luck with Not Rated and Fergie boots. They don’t leave the awkward space on your calves. Hope this helps!
