5'10" with 34" legs, and another fan of the Merrell Wakefield here. Hooray for a coat that is properly bum covering and with long arms!

ShirleySharpeyes Tue 25-Jun-13 22:27:29

Marking place. I'm 6' and size 12/14. I find a lot of the Scandi brands good for the long of limb.

ShirleySharpeyes Tue 25-Jun-13 22:30:46

IsletsOfLangerhans Wed 26-Jun-13 07:46:27

Marking place too - I'm 5'11" and struggling to find strappy vests that are long enough at the moment!

LetUsPrey Wed 26-Jun-13 07:51:23

I will not go to New Look today. I will not.

I'll go tomorrow or Friday instead

EeyoreIsh Wed 26-Jun-13 07:52:07

oooh I'm checking in as a tall person with 36"legs.

What I really want to know is where I can find dresses with the boob darts in the right place. <stares at my gorgeous blue dress with stupidly high darts>

* Islets* Primark have strappy vests that are below the bum on me (5'11). Primark is actually winning on the tall clothing. They sell jeans and trousers at a 34" leg.

Dorothy Perkins once had a fine tall range. Now there's next to nothing and it's crap.

LetUsPrey Wed 26-Jun-13 08:02:00

The Primark near me is a bit rubbish re their stock of jeans. I got some coloured skinny jeans a couple of months ago (and did a little happy dance in the changing cubicle when I saw how long they were grin) but they don't seem to have a decent selection of non-skinny jeans at the moment.

MumnGran Wed 26-Jun-13 08:04:11

Next have (or at least 'had' at the start of season) long strappy vests.
A rare find smile
So far washing & wearing well, without shrinkage - which was a bit of a shock because at £4 I expected cheap rubbish, so bought one (to go under a specific coloured overshirt) and had to go back and get more

Northumberlandlass Wed 26-Jun-13 08:12:40

Checking in.
6ft, size 14, 35" inside leg.

Have just ordered some straight jeans from GAP - Long (35") whoop.

Northumberlandlass Wed 26-Jun-13 08:13:49

With regards to vests. I go to H&M and buy their 'dress' vests....They just about cover my bum !!

OnTheNingNangNong Wed 26-Jun-13 08:15:23

Primark is a bit pants for non skinny jeans, atm, but I think I saw some in my local one, will check when I head over there on Friday.

Primark are also on ASOS so it might be worth a look on there too. smile

Marking my place for DD who is destined to be 5' 10".

What size feet do you all have? DD is 8.5 already and she is only 13.

AnyFucker Wed 26-Jun-13 08:18:48

Size 6 feet

ExitPursuedByABear Wed 26-Jun-13 08:21:24

So tall and big feet do not necessarily go hand in hand? <confuses self >

LetUsPrey Wed 26-Jun-13 08:23:26

Thanks for the Primark info. Will have a look later.

Size 6 feet here too, have a pair from M&S that are 5.5 and fit nicely. My mum always says she doesn't know how I don't blow over in a strong wind grin

MrsBucketxx Wed 26-Jun-13 08:24:18

primark have really long vests I have a few, super cheap too.

MrsBucketxx Wed 26-Jun-13 08:30:37

I'm a 7 so not that massive.

GibberTheMonkey Wed 26-Jun-13 08:30:39

I'm a 7
Was a 5 pre children
I have long toes and fingers. I like my hands actually

AnythingNotEverything Wed 26-Jun-13 08:31:53

Wow - a captive group of tall women ... Maybe you can help me find my holy grail?

Long leg maternity jeans.

Do tall women not get pregnant?! Next only do "long", which aren't long enough!

Any suggestions?

And for long line vests, try H&M. They do hip length and thigh length, and the wash fine too.

MrsBucketxx Wed 26-Jun-13 08:32:09

dh hates my long toes he calls them finger toes but I like them.
