Yup, back in the days a Tall Women Clothing store meant wide loose silky shirts – you could find shoulder padded ones if you were being really luck – crazy patterned long pleated skirts with psychotic associations of colors and ugly shoes. Long live the 21st century.
There’s still room for improvement – especially in SHOES – but at least we tallies don’t have to dress like twice our age and twice our weight and twice our bad taste anymore, which is an appreciable increase after all. ;)
A few tall women clothing stores around the web :
Although selling their products as “perfectly proportioned for those who are 5’9″/1.75m and over”, which is far from ideal to me – speak directly to my almost 6′ or I don’t really feel concerned – ASOS Tall collection has some pretty nice clothes. Then of course there’s Alloy (link on the left) which I like A LOT, with all their jeans and pants and extra long maxi skirts, they really have everything you need. Also I recently found that Victoria’s Secret have several pants with 34″ and 36″ inseams. Good news, isn’t it?
I so wish they were around when I was 14.
