You may or may not know this, but I'm tall - like really tall - like pushing six feet tall. Everyone comments on how fun it must be being tall but I don't necessarily agree. While I've come to accept my height it was not fun at all growing up. All the boys were shorter than me {don't worry - I ended up finding an over six foot lad}, "long" pants didn't exist at my favorite teeney bopper stores and I just felt plain awkward.

Luckily around my college years it seemed like companies started realizing that there was a market for tall people too - not only the short people needed special lengths in their pants and dresses - not to mention sleeves! While it is still hard to shop at a lot of stores, and sometimes I just put up with awkward length pants because I can't find anything else, there are some favorites that I have come to rely on. All the stores in the Gap family {Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic} have tall sizes and another new favorite is LOFT. You pretty much always have to shop online for tall lengths still and I sure hope that changes in the years to come cause I'm not getting any shorter. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite {tall-sized} fashion picks.

Tall girls unite :) Are you tall? Have any favorite places to shop? Do share!

  1. Great blog post. I'm almost 6 feet myself and had the exact same experience growing up. Most of my clothes are from the Gap Family (bought online obviously) but I haven't tried Loft and am excited to do so. I occasionally buy tall clothing from J.Crew (online) but I am in between sizes and I find the prices to be way too expensive. Though, I have purchased a few J.Crew long torso swimsuits and they fit and wash really well.

    Thanks again for the "tall" blog post.

    1. Good call on the J.crew swimsuits. Thanks Molly!!
