I am 5 feet 9 inches tall and find it so hard to buy nice clothes. Alot of shops have brought in tall ranges but here in Ireland Topshop, for example, might have 5 items in their tall section; So very little selection. Long Tall Sally are about the only real tall shop, however I find alot of their clothes old fashioned. Im 30 and my Mam who is 60 thinks their cloths are a bit old fashioned.
Take dresses; If you search any of the high street shops, Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, ASOS etc they have loads of beautiful dresses. However look at their tall section and they might have 3 and they are never any of the nice ones from the 'normal' range.
My bug bear is why cant clothes be made for tall girls that are fashionable and are just 'longer' versions of the stylist ones. I have bought and tried on dresses many times that are too short not only in the length above the knee but the proportions of the sleeves, the length between the shoulder to waist etc.
Can we not have more tall clothes and literally tall versions of all the hundreds of regular ones.
I give you Dorothy Perkins as an example. They have 751 dresses. 4 Tall ones and lets face it they are all gic. I dread have events and parties and weddings as maxi dresses are about all we can wear!!
I have been lucky to stumble across a accidently long dress and have a few but I have a couple of weddings coming up and it is just a nightmare!!
Help any advice??
