Any fellow tall ladies out there?
i am 5 months pregnant and have come to terms with the fact that I need maternity clothes. 🙂
The problem is I am 5’11 need a 36″ inseam. Most stores I found that feature tall/long maternity sizes are still not long enough – around 32″ – 34″. I found RG Maternity and Long Tall Sally but they don’t have much and seem to be pretty much out of stock in anything that will fit me.
Any secret sources I don’t know about? I live in Chicago and with winter coming, I’ll need full length pants/leggings/tights.

Have you tried old navy I’m rather short but always were regular length pants. But their maternity pants are way long on me in regular. It might be worth a try. Returns by mail are free too.

Have you tried Gap? I’m 5’8 and their regular length is actually too long on me, I had to hem it. Their pants tend to run long and I know they make a tall length, I think in the long and lean styles the inseam is somewhere around 36-37″

LTS is the only one i’ve really seen :-(. I have a 36″ inseam, too, so it’s something i’ve been paying attention to as we get closer to TTC. Maybe talk to a seamstress about adding in panels to regular LTS pants? Other than that, i’d go the pencil skirt route myself. I’m so so so so glad I only have to wear casual clothes to work and won’t have to find maternity suits for my 6’1″ self!!!
Old Navy/Gap only have up to 34, verrrrrrry occasionally a 35 inch inseam. Which isn’t going to look good on a 36 inch leg!There’s tall, and then there’s tall with extra long legs. Most women have a 30-31″ inseam, and most pants are 32″, so you may just have average to slightly below average length legs. Kind of apples to oranges here, sorry…! I’m talller than 99.9% of all women on Earth, for example, so I find it especially annoying when girls who are like 5’7″/5’8″ are like “Hey, i’m sort of tall and this is too long on me, so I don’t understand what the problem is!”

I have a 35″ inseam, and have given up. I have Old Navy maternity jeans, and they’re just an inch too short.
I think Destination Maternity has a line of jeans that goes up to 35″, but they’re SUPER expensive!

@crayfish: I know my inseam is 32″ and these were long, I’m thinking regular length around 33″ probably, usually tall/petite are +- 2″ and I know in their non maternity long and lean jeans they used to go up to a 37″ inseam, not sure if that transferred to maternity. There current sizing also says that as well. So please don’t tell me I don’t know anything, thanks 🙂
@bigfatgrace: Mommy long legs also carries I think up to a 37″ inseam.

@crayfish: JFC they’re just trying to help!
OP- I sadly have no good advice but i have my own maternity clothing woes so I feel your pain! Any way you can get away with skinnys in boots and tunics with leggings all winter?!

No clue, but I’m looking for advice on this too. Most of my height is in my torso, and my maternity tops are not covering the bump anymore! 5’10 and 31 weeks.

I’ve had luck with the Gap Maternity Jeans so I think I’m going to stick with that. I have a 35 inch inseam and get the longs or extra longs if they are available and that works quite well! As for work, I just do dresses all the time because I don’t like the way work appropriate pants look on me.
ETA: I’m 6 feet tall.

5’11.5″ here, with 35-36 inch inseam, depending on the shoes I want to wear.
I’d heard that JCPenney maternity had longer lengths, so I ordered some of those. Not quite right, probably coming out around 33 to 34 inches. Just not good enough, so they’re going back.
Motherhood Maternity has long length, which I just got last week. They’re good enough for flats, so I’d say 35 inch. I bought two pairs and only tried one on–I’m kinda hoping they’re inconsistent with sizing/length so the other pair is better for boots/heels!
Anyway, I have the additional pleasure of having to find plus–size maternity in tall, which hasn’t been easy. My JCPenney plus maternity leggings seem long enough, so I’ll be living in those plus boots plus dresses-as-tunics-since-most-dresses-are-too-short until December/January.
@GreenDream: Ugh, I know the pain. I’m kinda tall/long all over, and when I order a tunic, it’s usually “long-ish shirt” length on me, not TUNIC.

@bigfatgrace: J. Crew just came out with some maternity pants, and I know they have tall sizes. Really limited selection for right now, though…they only have a couple of styles. :-/

I have to have a chuckle at all these 5’11 mamas posting about how they have had no luck finding clothes to wear. :o)
I’m 6’1 with a 38″ inseam. There are a few ways to style a fall/winter maternity wardrobe: Be thankful for leggings and cropped jeans. I purchased three pairs of cropped jeans from Motherhood Maternity. They were definitely more ‘capri’ length on me than they were supposed to be, but I always had compliments on them! I wore them all this summer and yesterday, it was 60 degrees, so I paired them with a really cute tall riding boot! Leggings, as long as you wear a longer, bun-covering top (and as you near the end of your pregnancy, who really cares if it covers your bum or not?! As long as your leggings aren’t see-through, go for it.) also look SO cute with tall boots.
The great thing about current trends is that it seems like longer-length shirts are very popular right now! I would definitely invest in a few!
I wish you luck in styling a rockin’ maternity wardrobe!
I will tell you; stay away from Old Navy if you have anything longer than a 35″ inseam. That’s their “LONG” length! YIKES!
