Best Dress Length For Tall Women


back to blog

Are you on the lookout for super-flattering dresses for tall women? Then look no further! Here at Long Tall Sally we are all about empowering taller women and providing them with clothing that they can feel confident in!

Dresses for taller women can be difficult to find, but we have a great selection specifically designed for women 5″8 and up. No need to tuck in, cinch in with a belt, or worry about the hemline being too short! Our dresses are available in UK sizes 8-28, so you’ll be guaranteed to find the perfect fit.

Whatever style you’re looking for, we’ve created the ultimate guide to understanding dress lengths for taller women!

Getting the Right Fit

  • Style of dress: A skater skirt and a maxi skirt are going to sit very differently on your frame, something to keep an eye on when trying on dresses.
  • Shoulders & Bust: Shoulder seams should sit neatly at your shoulder blade, if it doesn’t, you know you have the wrong size.
  • Hemline: If the hem of your dress is long enough to touch the floor or short enough that you’re constantly pulling at it, then you know you have the wrong size.
