Happy Boxing Day everyone!

I ventured out to the sales briefly today to try and hunt out a few things, but despite looking it shops I wouldn't normally touch, I can't find what I'm after.

Does anyone have any tried and tested shops to buy longer length woman's fitted v-next jumpers? Similarly, longer vest tops? I'm not fussed about price, I just want to get a few that will last so would be happy to pay a decent amount for them.

I'm 5"7 and a size 12, but my torso is fairly long in proportion to my legs. I seem to always end up pulling down jumpers because they are too short, hence my hunt.

I've tried m&s, debenhams, laura ashley, monsoon, etc - all of my regular haunts.

Does anyone have any suggestions please? Any colours/patterns welcome!
Thanks!

I should have said, sorry. I am looking for jumpers that sit at about hip length or slightly shorter, to wear with jeans and trousers. Not long dress type jumpers. Thanks!

Try gap, I have just bought some tops from there and they cover my bum so should be good for you, I am 5.4.

When I was pregnant I found that the plain white and black h&m maternity tops were really long, and have continued to buy them as basics, as I really hate tops which are too short. They aren't ruched and don't look like maternity clothes, but just have to size down.

I am not a size 12, but am also long in the body (5'7" but 31" leg) I bought a couple of nice v-neck jumpers in Matalan in November, a colleague was wearing one from Zara.

Try GAP here If you buy in the Tall size they finish low hip and the regular size probably mid hip. I speak from experience as same height as you and also have long torso. Incredibly hard to get long tops sometimes so I feel your pain!!

I find the h&m vests pretty long (I have big boobs so need longer tops too) also have you tried any of the 'tall' ranges? I know next do one x

Can't help with jumpers but Dunnes sell super long vests (mid thigh on me). The quality is great too.

I have never tried any tall ranges because the height is always taller than my height and I seem to end up in petite skirts/jeans half the time as my legs are short... I had never thought of trying the tall ranges for tops. What a simple idea that has just never entered my head! Thank you everyone, that is a brilliant idea!

Similarly, I don't often look in gap and h&m but remember they used to have longer tops when I shopped their a few years ago. Thank you, a few old haunts to be found. I need to hunt out Dunnes as well. Thanks!

Gap tall range as others have said. I've also found that some uniqlo jumpers are long (not all), and some from banana republic as well (trial and error!)...

Sainsbury's and Tesco's do long length t shirts and vest tops. Not sure on jumpers.

For vests try joules/rampant sporting, I'm 5'10 with a long torso too

I am similar height and proportions to you OP. Land's End is my friend - plenty of plain tops and jumpers through the frumpy stuff. Good lengths, but size down!

I was going to say H & M for long vests too smile

New look often do long knitwear and White Stuff/Crew Clothing also have some nice longer line tops.

I bought a Zara v neck cashmere jumper this season. Long and I have lived in it. I am 5 9 and a 10/12.

I have along length v neck jumper from pure collection (online). 5'10" here with a long torso too. Best vest I have had is from jack wills.

H&M are cheap and great for long torsoed folk

Me+em do lovely longer stroppy vest tops in the most lovely long lasting jersey. (Caveat, I am obsessed with Me+Em)
