Hi. I'm also 5'11 and found that Next long maternity trousers fitted really well. Congratulations on your pregnancy.

Topshop do a longer length
Long Tall Sally (but pricey)
Next extra long maternity are good
H & M maternity wear is quite generous in length.

thankyou, will try next i think. the one here is next to mothercare so good excuse for another look at baby stuff. (it's our first so both annoyingly excited!)

Long Tall Sally have a sale on this week end if that helps.

I am 6ft with a 36" inside leg and get so fed up with the lack of choice. Only ones I could find long enough were the LTS ones, so I have had a choice of two pairs of trousers for the last 8 months.

I did find some in Mothercare that were almost long enough but they were under the bump ones and kept falling down so I took them back. Next do do nice ones but think they only go up to 34" legs.

All depends how long your leg is. Most 'tall' maternity is 33", which is not tall in my book!

I also got this really nice skirt from Funmum. They do a tall range but think it only goes up to 33"

I got a pair of XL trousers from Next which were fine. A friend of mine who is 6'1 got all her trousers in H&M

Isabella Olivier cut REALLY long. I had a dress from there last year, and even in 5" heels, at 5'8" it trailed the floor!

after much deliberatling I ordered some jeans from tall maternity store for my friend Jo tonight who has 36 inch pins! The OWNER even rang me to check the sizing and tell me the order woule be sent out tomorrow morning, how canny is that! I wouldnt expect that from the huge retailers! Will post some feedback when they arrive (jo's feedback) x

Tall maternity store is great and great service. I ordered a size bigger because I found them a bit on small side
