I have to say since I’ve been writing this blog the question I see from my readers over and over again is where to find tall tights that don’t wriggle down to your knees nor cost the earth. I have been researching and am going to share with you my 3 favourites.
Highstreet – When you’re in a hurry or you’re not an online shopper the best of the highstreet brands in my opinion is Marks and Spencer. I have also tried H&M and Next but these are my favourite. I usually buy an XL and hope the extra elastic will stretch, they take a little maneuvering and I dread going for a wee and having to re position them but at £8 for 3 pairs they are great for everyday wear.

As the cold winter has set in I have been looking at cosy slippers to keep our big feet warm :-). They make a great Christmas present for your big footed loved ones too. I used to wear the ugliest mens slippers to keep my feet warm, but in recent years the retailers have seen the gap in the market and are finally making lovely warm girly slippers in bigger sizes. Don’t forget to check out the latest offers and sales on my Latest Retailers page before you make your purchase.
Evans have these lovely Fairisle boots with a fluffy lining for just £16, they go up to a UK10. – NO LONGER IN STOCK
Tall Girls UK are great for those of you with bigger feet, they go up to a UK12 / US14 They have these lovely boots for £29.
With the warm autumn we are having, the short biker jacket is a must-have item this year. In the time I have been researching this blog I have realised there is a huge selection of short jackets in the tall ranges this year which is great. To make things a little easier for you I have selected my favourites ranging in price, style and quality. Don’t forget to check out the latest offers before you buy.
New Look have in my opinion the best jacket for less than £50. This jacket is not real leather but looks great and I love the collarless simple style.
I love the festive season but I hate short sleeves! So I have put together my top picks when it comes to Christmas jumpers this year. If you find any great ones please let me know so I can add them in.
Number 5 – Long Tall Sally
I love this jumper but at £55 i feel it is overpriced.
I guess there is only so much in life we can expect the tall retailers to cater for. So far I am yet to find helpful information on bridesmaid dresses or any specialist retailers. Having been through this journey recently I thought I would share with you my experiences. My sister is getting married in May and for the last 6 months we have been searching for full length dresses for my other sister and I that will be long enough. Don’t worry there is a happy ending.

Im of an age now (27) where wedding invitations in my letterbox are as common as bills, and quite often cost me more in outfits alone. I love a good wedding but shudder at the thought of having to piece together a matching outfit that’s long enough. I’ve put together 3 top tips for wedding outfits for tall girls, stick with these and the process should be a lot less painful.
Shoes are key. So many times now I have focused on buying the perfect dress only to discover I cannot find shoes that go in my size. These days I try to find a dress in a solid colour that will go with the basic shoes colours (black white tan) alternatively a pattern with one of these colours in the mix.
2. Midi dresses are the way to go. A midi dress from pretty much any shop will fall at a lovely length on long legs. Recently I have bought several midi dresses from Asos that sit just below the knee on me, the key thing to look out for is that the waist line isn’t too defined as this is where you may struggle with fit.
3. Wear a big hat. Like bags us tall girls can pull off any sort of hat in fact the bigger the better. Personally I hire mine from the local millinery but you can also pick up bargain hats at charity shops
