My dd is 3 and quite tall. She has a long slim torso and I struggle to buy tops/tshirts/jumpers/hoodies that fit. Age 3-4 is too short on the body and she looks like she's wearing cropped tops but age 4-5 is huge and baggy around the neck and shoulders and looks ridiculous. Usually to avoid the problem i put her in dresses and tights/leggings but this isnt always practical. Where can I buy clothes which are long enough on the body? Any ideas?

Tesco - used to good for long and thin - I'm a bit out of touch though and avoid Asda was what I found which were wide and short.

Maybe Gap? Or some styles at H&M.

Org of my kids are long and skinny, tesco, H&M and next tend to be ok (next sizes very variable though)

For when she starts school I find M&S slim fit polo shirts good in a larger size they don't look baggy IMO.

Tops from boden seem longer than most too.

Thank you I'll check those out. I had no idea there is a 'slim fit' range for school uniform either, that sounds like it'll be very useful!

H&M are good for tall slim children. They were a life saver for my DC for years.
