Can anyone recommend where I can get some vest/cami's that would suit the long of body? I am looking for ones that are made of stretchy material rather than cotton so are figure hugging and preferably don't stop at my midriff.

I am 5'8 and quite long in the body so find it quite a struggle. Your help would be appreciated!

What's your budget? Baukjen ones are very nice and really long, but bit on pricey side. www.baukjen.com/eu/baukjen-sale/sale-tees/essential-extra-long-tank-seafoam-green.htm

Matalan do some really good ones.

Yes Matalan, and they are £4 each. I have loads.

I have exactly the same problem. I've bought from h&m in previous years and will be having a look there later in the week as I need to replenish mine.

I bought some from Matalan this week. They usually have a range of colours but only had black and white yesterday. I love how they come down to my hips and past if I buy a size up. I'm 5'7.

If anyone sees any long line ribbed stretchy vests, I'd love to know. I have one that I bought years ago in New Look and have dyed it black again as it had got so faded!

Hush do longer vest tops and long sleeve versions.

i love H&M long vests. They are stretchy material. Double check aa they have some cheaper ones. Think the ones i get are £6 and only come in basic colours. Oh they might be on the website under their basic range.

Next! I never shop there but they have some long ones.

I'm tall and I like Primark vests.

They do stretchy camisoles which are nice and long, either with spaghetti straps or thick straps. I have tried other more expensive vests, but come back to these because they keep their shape and wash well.

I have got long line vests from M&S and Boden. Am glad to read some other suggestions though.

I am not particularly tall but have a long body in proportion to my height. I've finally realised that a long line vest under tops saves a world of tummy flashing and the dreaded builders bum (I also have a curvy arse!)

Primary is your friend.

I'm 5'10 and their long vests (I think they call them cami dress) cover my bum if I go a size up. They wash well, come in several colours and are cheap

ClockMaker I just got some ribbed vests from Uniqlo - I'm 5'7 and long in the body and they reach my hips. Good quality and some nice colours too www.uniqlo.com/uk/store/goods/188014

Thanks :-) will have a look now!

I like the Primark cami dresses as well - lovely and long as a vest!

Matalan here too - £4 for the longer ones that go past your bottom or £3 for slightly shorter, hip length

I have loads too!
