If anyone needs longer length tops

they have got some great ones in H&M.

Nice muted mauve, grey, teal marl type colours, really soft knit, like a long sleeved t shirt but soft like a thin sweater.

They are LONG! Which I need as short ones are just wrong on me.

£7.99 and I was handed a 20% off card today when I went in. I think I will go and get a couple more tomorrow, they fit so nicely.

Ooh nice, thanks HBC, what is the neckline like?

HelenaBonhamCarter Tue 08-Sep-09 18:55:35

Oh yes crucial point. It's like the usual long sleeved tops are in there - kind of normal crew neck shape, not low or anything.

I couldn't believe it when I found them. I/'m so used to the wrong sort of top grin

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 08-Sep-09 18:56:33

do they do them in fat girl size? or only teeny skinny girl size?

IrishDraught Tue 08-Sep-09 18:57:01

oh excellent, thankyou!

HelenaBonhamCarter Tue 08-Sep-09 18:58:02

This shape but without the lining obv. and in a very soft knit rather than cotton. Hold on will just check label.

Ooh 55 cotton, 45 polyester - hope they don't bobble. So nice and soft though smile

I think all sizes, they're on the cheapo rails iyswim, which seem universal sizewise. They ahd teeny sizes though so not entirely sure - it was in teens dept.

ooh thanks HBC
Are you tall, or do you just like long tops? I really need some new jeans and don't want to pay Long Tall Sally prices. Are H&M jeans any good? I have never been in one.

Dont suppose htey have v neck? <hopeful face> They sound just what I need, but I feel too claustrophobic in anything not v necked!

HelenaBonhamCarter Tue 08-Sep-09 19:31:05

Well I didn't see any v neck I'm afraid...they ahd several types of round neck on the same rail, had to hunt for these...but always worth a look in there.

Lanky I'm 5 7ish and have quite a long body iyswim, my legs are only a 30 for jeans. So I struggle with top lenghth!


HelenaBonhamCarter Tue 08-Sep-09 19:32:01

that makes me sound v odd shape indeed grin

tvaerialmagpiebin Tue 08-Sep-09 19:35:31

well I'm practically 6ft and size 10 and want a 34" leg jeans at least. LTS jeans are £40 shock and the quality of all their stuff has deteriorated over the years imo.

Think I had better have a mooch in H&M

southeastastra Tue 08-Sep-09 19:38:42

i started a similar thread, about v necks in h & m though. really good, quite thin but covers bum (i'm 5ft 6)

american apparel have long vnecks too lanky

HelenaBonhamCarter Tue 08-Sep-09 19:41:58

Ooh really SEA? They sound nice too. I don't suit a v nec but I like long stuff whatever it is really smile

Lanky I hope you find something...Killah jeans are often really really long, they do them in places like littlewoods/additions I think. Also had some second hand abercrombies that are really long but I think they might be dear new.

I got too fat for them or maybe they shrank...hmm

HelenaBonhamCarter Tue 08-Sep-09 19:44:59

Loads here

I ordered some 30" ones from additions a while back and they were at least 34", the reviews all said the same! Not sure how the different styles come up though.

missmelly Tue 08-Sep-09 19:48:09

lanky try New Look tall range as well, I got skinnys there for £20 on the weekend (I'm 6ft)

gibba8 Tue 08-Sep-09 19:54:26

Lankyalto-also try Next tall range-available on line and in some stores. I need 35" leg and these are really long for me-I have to get them taken up!! More reasonably priced than LTS too!

tvaerialmagpiebin Tue 08-Sep-09 20:24:59

Thanks everyone - will get shopping hat on (HATE shopping but have holes in all jeans and tops all shrunk...grr... am bag lady)

CMOTdibbler Tue 08-Sep-09 20:34:43

I bought some M&S tops V neck and slash neck and they are really long, very fine so great for layering, and their modal tops don't bobble and seem to keep their colour.

I buy jeans from Top Shop mostly - they do 32, 34 and 36" legs and seem to last well

KristinaM Tue 08-Sep-09 23:52:24

lanky - i normally buy a 10/ 32'' leg and ALL the trousers in Zara are way too long for me.

TK Maxx often have long jeans

Just reporting abck to say that they definitely had a 16 in our shop this morning, I didn't have time for a proper rifle through but I saw a 16 in there, deffo grin

so looks like they do bigger sizes folks. I have got two grey and one mauve now.

GirlsAreLOud Wed 09-Sep-09 12:02:26

Just to say the boyfriend style cashmere mix jumpers in Gap that were (are?) on offer for £19.50 were plenty long enough for me. They are a v neck and they have lots of different coulours and also stripey ones.

I've now got four of them grin

tvaerialmagpiebin Thu 10-Sep-09 19:06:09

I have bought these LTS jeans today (actually my mum paid for them) but I am not sure. They are a bit gapey at the back and I like to be able to tuck my vest in well (sad I know). Was too scared of Top Shop and New Look as they were full of trendy girls not in fleeces like me!!
