back to blog

Are you on the lookout for the ideal pair of jeans? We know what it’s like they’re either barely reaching your waist or falling short at the ankles. Shopping doesn’t always come easy when you’re a taller woman, especially when you’re shopping for jeans – that’s where we come in!

At Long Tally Sally, we understand the challenges of finding well-fitting jeans for tall women. That’s why we’ve created a collection of trend-led and classic denim styles to suit every need. Knowing what to look for and the measurements you need to take makes finding that perfect-fitting pair a lot easier. Therefore, we have pulled together the ultimate guide on how to find the perfect fit for tall jeans.

Measurements for Jeans

  • Waist– Measuring your waist is simple! Just find the narrowest point on your lower torso and measure across from one side to the other.
  • Rise – This is the distance between the crotch seam and the bottom of the waistband – tall women have a longer torso, so these need to be longer. Low rise – sits 2″ below the navel, mid-rise sits just below the navel, and high rise sits at or above the navel.
  • Hips – Simply put, this is the measurement from the widest point of your lower torso. Essentially an inch or two below the zip.
  • Inseam – Measure your leg inseam from the top of your inner thigh to the bottom of the ankle. Here at LTS we have a range of inseams up to 38″.

Top Tips

  • Look out for jeans with a small amount of stretch material – elastane will help to flatter your silhouette and keep you comfortable.
  • When buying jeans, always make sure you sit down in them beforehand, as they should be snug but not uncomfortable.
