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

  • Shoulders & Bust: It’s important that the shoulder seams, (if present) rest smoothly on your shoulder blades. When it’s overly tight, the seams tend to shift towards your neck, leading to discomfort in the shoulders, back, and bust. On the other hand, if it’s too loose, it’s a clear sign that the dress is not the right size.
  • Hemline: There are various hemline styles to choose from, it’s crucial to avoid a dress that either trails on the ground or is too short and makes you feel uncomfortable. It’s worth considering the type of footwear you plan to wear, such as heels or flats, before making a final decision.
