My dm does. I think its really expensive too. Last time I looked I couldn't see anything at all I remotely liked.

I didn't realize they still existed! About 30 years ago they were constantly promoted in fashion magazies as complete trendsville. I guess they've just stayed there, thirty years ago.

As a tall woman I think its frumpy as hell. I do grt my pj's from there its the only place I can get proper long jammies.

Gave up shopping there! Instead- next & new look.
Mrsbucket- next do tall pjs!

yeh, there's some bad stuff in there! it's like petite ranges (I'm 5'1") they're not trying to appeal to young people, or rich people, or professionals, or bohemian types, they're trying to appeal to as many tall people as possible (or short people) so it comes up really bland.

The main issue I have with it is the poor quality of the fabrics. Several things I've bought there have been washed a few times and then are never the same.

I only buy basics eg jeans because I can't buy them elsewhere. I agree the stuff is not on trend.

I saw Phil Jupitus the other day with a 'High and Mighty' bag.

Awful shop.

They used to have great basics that I didn't mind paying over the odds for. But now it is boring/tacky/poor quality and expensive.
I like Next tall, and ASOS tall have some nice stuff

since responding to this thread, I've been bombarded with LTS adverts on FB. where do FB get this info?

ILoveYouBaby Tue 29-Jul-14 13:58:58

I like that skirt! I do get a few things from their sale, I wouldn't pay full price though.

I'm not tall enough at 5'8 for LTS, but I'm not sure what is wrong with the skirt?

If your using crome or firefox the cookies are saved if you looked at links or sites which fb or here uses. It happens to me to.

ChanelNumber19 Tue 29-Jul-14 20:30:01

same here alltoomuchrightnow, which is funny really as I'd need to stand on a box to get a shop assistant's attention in LTS!

ThrowAChickenInTheAir Tue 29-Jul-14 20:38:47

I gave up on them ages ago too. Often overpriced. I just had a look at the sale - not many bargains there.

I always think a long skirt or maxi dress on a tall woman like myself makes them look like an exclamation mark. It accentuates their height and length in an unflattering, frumpy way.

Download ad blocker for Firefox. It's not till I don't have it I realise how many ads we are being bombarded with

Winky I love my maxi's. But being curvy I think helps im not straight up and down.

MrsDavidBowie Wed 30-Jul-14 16:58:07

I am six feet tall and love maxis but they have to be very slim fitting. Have a lovely black skirt from Top Shop and a dress from Tall Girls which is a favourite.
I am in Chiltern St tomorrow looking at shows so will see what monstrosities LTS have in.
