Are you fed up with tops coming up short? Here at Long Tall Sally, we understand how frustrating it can be to not find tops that both fit and flatter your longer body. A problem faced by many tall women! So to try and help we’ve rounded up 5 types of tall tops that suit ladies with long torsos.
Our 3 Long Torso Style Tips:
- AVOID low waisted jeans and trousers at all costs. This fit will only lengthen your body and make your legs look shorter. High rise fits elongate your legs, and give you the illusion of a high waistline.
- Opt for wider belts. Wide belts help to create a balanced finish by breaking up the space on your torso. A wide belt paired with high-waisted slim fit jeans is a must-have look.
- Create the illusion of a high waist. This can be done with… you guessed it, tops! Longline, tie waist, and striped tops are ideal for drawing attention to the smallest part of your waist and making your body appear more balanced.
Long Length Tunic Tops
Tunics are a wardrobe essential for our girls with longer waists. Naturally designed with longer lengths, tunic tops are ideal for balancing and flattering your overall frame.
The tie waist on this Berry Red Ribbed Lounge Tunic is not only bang on-trend but helps to cinch you in at the waist and flatter your body. Try styling this tunic with matching wide-leg trousers or leggings for effortless style and comfort.
Our Cotton Shirt Tunics come in smock style loose, lightweight, and incredibly flattering in a relaxed fit. Falling between your hips and knees, they draw the focus to your waist and make your legs look longer. Wear it on its own as a dress, or pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans. Smarten up your work wardrobe with a pair of skinny tailored trousers.

Tall t-shirts are designed for taller frames in mind with flattering longer lengths you’ll find a selection of styles to work into your casual collection. These t-shirts are also perfect when it comes to layering, so don’t be scared to layer up with your favourite leather jackets or blazers.
Horizontal stripes are a saviour for longer waisted ladies. Stripes on your top half help create balance with your body shape. The wider the stripes, the better! They help to break up the space on your longer torso. Pair with high waisted jeans as they help to give the illusion of a higher waistline, and draw the eyes up, rather than down.

Long Length Blouses

The longline fit of this Pink Frill Button Through Blouse is ideal for flattering your figure.

Style with a pair of leather-look leggings and heeled boots for a head-turning look.
Long Length Bodysuits
Bodysuits are perfect for comfort and easy styling. With no need to tuck in, tall bodysuits are made to hug your figure whilst supporting your curves in a figure smoothing way. They are also great to add an edge to your look.

When tops come up short, this naturally makes the body look longer – not what we want! We’ve got a range of peplum tops with longer lengths that are perfect for flattering your longer torso.
Peplum tops draw the eye inwards and cinch in at the waist, flattering your figure and lengthening your legs. Play with patterns like our Pink Gingham Square Neck Milkmaid top or our Yellow Floral Shirred Sleeveless Top for easy everyday styling or evening-worthy styles.
