Sainsburys ones are only a tenner.

I do like the floral tall girls ones , although I'm thinking I'm a bit too old for them

Try ASOS tall for jumpsuits, not sure I've seen play suits anywhere, maybe Next?

hi all, 5'10" and 34" Leggies.

Rampant sporting (sold by joules) does very longline vests, large fit too.

have recently bought some jeggings from sainsbury's - it's a good thing the turned up leg is in now it's springhmm I did notice they do have some tall jeans, not sure on quality though

dizhin79 Mon 12-May-14 23:18:13

I'm 5ft 10, size 9 (10 in athletic shoes), 33" size 16/18 mostly thanks to having 36Js. So I'm pretty much outsize in everything. The hardest thing is swimming costumes - it has to be a one piece (I don't feel comfortable in a tankini), fit my boobs, and not pull at the crotch. Panache are the only ones who do HH/J cup swimsuits.

Uniqlo are surprisingly long. I take an XL there but was a large when I was a GG cup. I've been wearing Monsoon's Paloma jeans which are slightly too long for me. Mostly I'm sick of dresses/skirts that are so short that everyone can see tomorrow's washing when I bend down...

Jamdoughnutfiend Tue 13-May-14 18:35:22

I am 6,1 but size 14/16 with an area you can balance a pint on which makes shopping tricky - also have huge size 44 feet - am a fashion disaster so this thread is really helpful!

Sunnyfeet Tue 13-May-14 18:35:42

I'm 5' 6" and a half (can't do a 'half' symbol on my phone) and I thought I was tall? But clearly not? Everyone around me tells me I'm really tall, makes me feel a bit weird sometimes. Yet I was recently measured by the nurse, and I definitely haven't grown. Maybe everyone around me is a dwarf?

However, I often find 'regular' length fitting too short, and the 'long' fitting too long. But I'm not tall apparently, so sorry to have butted in!!!

Jamdoughnutfiend Tue 13-May-14 18:39:00

Area = arse - bloody ipad

mrsbucketxx Tue 13-May-14 19:44:30

That's ok sunny. Its hard not getting stuff to fit however tall you are.

SpecialCircumstances Tue 13-May-14 19:53:56

Ooh, I had to come straight onto this! I'm only 5'10 (never thought I'd say that!) Size 14 but with big hips and shoulders. What my mum calls 'farmers wife' style (which is not an insult to farmers wives, and we do come from generations of farming families!) I find tops the hardest- I dread the trouser/top gap and tend to wear tunics as tops with jeans. I just feel to big to be feminine if you know what I mean.

madrigals yes, I've got fairly long legs, I think this makes me look taller than I really am. My husband is 5' 11", and I've got longer legs than him!
