I’m almost 1m 80, and have very long legs. all of this is absolutely fine, but when in comes to clothing, it’s hard for me to find things that fit perfectly, as I’m also very thin. pants are always too short, and the worst in winter are the jackets. the sleeves are never long enough to cover my wrists and I have to wear long gloves. but it looks a bit ridiculous. Do you guys know any brand for tall girls? have you the same issue?

i don’t think that wearing long gloves looks ridiculous, but i do think it is uncomfortable or unpleasant.
i have a friend with a similar issue – she solved by taking a looks in the guy’s section in the stores…or by buying clothes that are bigger in size.

I went once to the men’s section; but I couldn’t find anything that pleased me… and as I’m skinny, taking a bigger size makes me look like I’m drowning in my clothes…

men’s clothes are made to fit the shape of a man’s body. women’s bodies have curves (even skinny girls have some!) I went to Levi’s once, they have different sizes for the legs, but I don’t have enough money to buy one of those jeans! I wish some brand could do the same for the sleeves, but I imagine this would be luxury as well…

One of my cousins, who is 1m85, has a trick for the pants: she wears ankle booties, no one remarks that her pants are too short. but she still has frozen wrists in winter :p

I feel your pain-I’m around 1m78-1m80 as well.

For jeans I normally buy Cheap Monday or the longer inseam jeans from Urban Outfitters. Uniqlo jeans are also long enough for me, but I find the rise is too low, so I normally go for high rise styles that cover enough of my long torso. If you are thinner than me though (I’m XS on top, M on bottom) and don’t need to cover a muffin top they would probably work for you-and they’re under $50US.

The only brand of wool coat I’ve found long enough for me so far has been Mackage and Soia&Kyo (same company)-sometimes the coats at Zara are also long enough even in XS/S-but it depends on the style.

Topshop has a tall section as well-the stock is a bit limited but it’s a good option for pants and jeans.

Dress pants for work have been the worst challenge for me….I’ve splurged and bought Theory ones which I actually need to hem, and Gap makes a long inseam too which I have to hem as well.

Wish I could be more help! I know a couple of other good sources but I believe they are American brands that I’m unsure you have in France.

Many designers have additional sizes online. For example, many Free People pants are made and available with an extra long inseam.

Actually, I have almost the same height as you, but I don’t have this problem.I always find clothes for me in Bershka, ZARA, H&M or New Yorker. Maybe I’m just lucky!
Cheers.

yes I find sometimes pants at Zara, but some models fit, some don’t… weird. And it’s the same for the sleeves. I found that many British or American jeans brands had different leg sizes, I bought one at Hollister and I’m pretty happy with it, sadly is doesn’t seem to exist for more formal pants.
