I am 5' 8" and fed up of short tops!
I have seen Uniqlo praised on here for being good quality. Does any one know if the tops are long though? I mean properly long.

They're all so short at the minute sad (5ft 10 here)
Have resorted to long tall sally

I got some vests and tees in the recent UT sale at Uniqlo, they are all very long, almost arse covering and I am 5'10".

Lots of long vests from ASOS and Primark always have some stuff that is really long.

Sweaty Betty do a vest called Mantra which is nice and long, hip length, and I'm the same height as you.

I'm the same height as you OP, and I've found Uniqlo tops to be too short. I have found long ones this year at White Company, but colours are limited (I've got navy and white), and found some good ones in Banana Republic in the past (not looked this year though, as I don't have one near me). Bought a couple in Next last year which were long enough, but didn't keep their shape - tended to go baggy too quickly.

Fat Face do long t-shirts, though you need to try them on as I found that this year's stripy ones here looked a bit frumpy on (but maybe that's just me!). Gap used to be long enough, but the quality of their cotton has become so poor in the past few years, that I don't bother going there any more. I bought some fabulous long vests in Mint Velvet about five years ago, lovely and long, thick cotton, keep their shape beautifully - but now their stuff is all floaty and see-through....

I agree it's a problem. I just want a few tops which don't display my midriff if I lift my arms above my head, How hard can it be?

Thank you for all the examples.
I don't think stripes look good on me.
I have ordered the long line vests from Boden, it is t shirts I'm after atm.
I'll have a look at the UT ones.
Thank you all.
