Longer length Tops for running (preferably long sleeved)

hello all - i've recently started running (done C25k) and am struggling to find decent running tops. I'm a size 18-20 (the running is helping to shift this thank goodness!!) and I'd like a decent performance top, preferably long sleeves, that is longer length, ideally covering my hips and bum.

Probably because of my size, tops of normal length tend to ride up so i expend precious energy yanking them down every few mins.

Any tips?

When I rang them (after something fairly specific for DD) the staff were really helpful and knew their stock. And we were happy with what they recommended.

The fat lass at the back running top is cut properly so it doesn't ride up. You could wear a tight base layer, or use arm warmers with it (I love arm warmers as I get so hot)

Its really hard to get tunic length tops in performance fabrics. When its cold I do run in my fleece parka which works really well.

For the warmer weather, I love a skapri for the coverage

Sports Direct or JD sports?

I order a German brand called gregstar (think amazon sells them) and I find them quite long.

I'm a similar size and have got a great long sleeved top from Decathlon, in the mens section though.

These Under Armour tops are amazing. There is a band of a fabric round the bottom that stops them riding up. I totally LOVE mine.
