as a lanky bird 5'11 I am always on the look out for new tall web sites fashion blogs etc.

my current faves being http://allthetallthings.com (blog)

and clothes from http://tallerthanyouraverage.com/

any other recommendations, tips woukd be great too.

after all petite ranges are everywhere, tall ones should be too.

Ooh I'm marking my place! I'm 5'11 and I am a New Look tall range shopper, I've recently found some jeans in Primark that are perfect in the leg too!

The ATTT blog is amazing, unfortunately I do not have her body but I love the links to tall clothes, it makes me feel normal. smile

MrsBucketxx Tue 25-Jun-13 20:36:19

she looks about a size ten, but lots of the dresses etc are yummy, and she even mentions non tall stuff that could be tall.

Oh no, I wish you hadn't started this...I can tell it's going to cost me money.... smile Another 5'11" -er here...

Lioninthesun Tue 25-Jun-13 20:41:36

Ooooh thanks! I'm only a mini 5'10 but have monkey arms and every year one wash of any jumper sees my wrists peeking out. Also am a 33inch leg which seems to be the hardest to find!

mummy1973 Tue 25-Jun-13 20:46:12

Marking place too. I'm 5'10 but have a long body so struggle to get dresses to fit. Got a nice one in Next in tall.

DramaAlpaca Tue 25-Jun-13 20:46:23

I'm marking my place too. I'm 5'10 with long arms & have 34" legs.

Thanks for those links, I'm going to take a look.

The only tall clothing sites I know are www.tallgirls.co.uk which is usually too young for me, and www.longtallsally.co.uk which is too staid & boring.

MrsBucketxx Tue 25-Jun-13 20:49:26

lion all my jumpers are "three quarter" length I mean full length shrunk and turned up to look that way.

the only ones that arent are my bench tops although the thumb holes look odd on my wrists blush

MrsBucketxx Tue 25-Jun-13 20:51:16

I like tall girls stuff but tone it down with more classic ( frumpy) stuff.

Salbertina Tue 25-Jun-13 20:51:33

Marking place- you lot make me feel nice and average for a change grin

Marking place for when I save up my pennies grin

LetUsPrey Tue 25-Jun-13 20:57:28

Don't think I've ever clicked on a thread so quickly!

Another 5'11 here with 33/34" inside leg and monkey arms.

I used to be able to rely on Next for my basic work clothes, particularly trousers. Flipping awful fit these last couple of years though.

I'm going to regret clicking on these links aren't I?

auntpetunia Tue 25-Jun-13 21:05:40

Another here 5ft 11 with 32" inside leg and monkey arms! I'm being so restrained and haven't clicked on an any links yet!

OnTheNingNangNong Tue 25-Jun-13 21:16:07

I use these midi skirts as knee length skirts, reasonably priced and wash really well.

MrsBucketxx Tue 25-Jun-13 21:18:36

just been looking at top shop tall range and they have lots of crop tops, surely you just need to wear a normal top and voila grin

WouldBeHarrietVane Tue 25-Jun-13 21:20:55

Oooh a tall blog - thank you for posting grin

feetheart Tue 25-Jun-13 21:22:58

Marking place and keeping hands in pockets smile

QuiteOldGal Tue 25-Jun-13 21:31:08

Marking place also

5'10 here, also with monkey arms and 33" leg, size 14. Hardest thing to get I find is coats or even worse jackets, though I have had a couple from Next tall.

My Merrell Wakefield coat is an excellent fit though.

GibberTheMonkey Tue 25-Jun-13 21:35:14

Marking place
I was 5 11
But I suspect I'm shrinking (worn down) and am nearer 5 10 now

womblesmissus Tue 25-Jun-13 21:37:02

Brilliant, in need of inspiration and to get away from relying on LTS. 5ft 11 here with 35 in legs

GibberTheMonkey Tue 25-Jun-13 21:37:34

My biggest problem at the moment is stuff for hiking etc
All the women's stuff is too short and all the men's the wrong shape

Northey Tue 25-Jun-13 21:50:03

Ooh! 5'11" , a 33" leg and monkey arms too. Also broad-shouldered...

WouldBeHarrietVane Tue 25-Jun-13 21:52:49

I'm 6ft, size 12/14 and pretty much a pear smile

ellangirl Tue 25-Jun-13 22:02:37

I'm positively tiny at 5'9" grin but dresses drive me mad. Everything ends up empire line as I'm long bodied.
