If you are a woman who needs your jeans in tall lengths and you are frustrated because you cannot find the correct fit at a fair price, we probably have similar shopping experiences but recently my experience is improving! I have a friend who is tall and for years we wore the same size but had to buy opposite shapes to get the right fitting jeans. The toughest part of finding the right jeans is knowing what style fits your shape best-knowing your size and length is not enough-then discovering companies that offer enough choices.
I need jeans with a 36-inch inseam and for years I had to travel hours from my home to look for jeans at tall shops. If I found the jeans fit, I bought at least two colors in my size and length. More than once however, the next time I needed jeans, the store was out of business or the manufacturer that made the ones that fit me well had quit making talls.
Lately, I find many more stores carry various styles of tall jeans in up to 34 inch inseams and some are longer; large store catalogs have more than one style and length available; and some large company outlet stores carry tall jeans in misses and ultra tall sizes. If I still cannot find tall jeans that fit properly at a store nearby, there are more available to order online and some can be returned to the store if you do not like them once you try them on for fit.
I found that I need jeans that are looser at the waist, tighter in the rear and thighs and never baggy. They can be straight legs or boot cut. My friend wears jeans that fit long-waisted and long enough from waistband to crotch and are baggy in the thighs and knee area even though she wears a size 12. Those styles and fits are available now at a variety of stores and online for approximately $45 – $70 retail:
Lerner New York is one mall store that carries various styles of tall jeans in sizes 2 – 18.
Lane Bryant carries them in sizes 1T – 8T (1T fits a 34 inch waist) at the stores.
Online, Lane Bryant carries the tall jeans to a size 10T.
Old Navy carries tall boot cut jeans for $34.50 in four colors.
Long Elegant Legs online or by catalog has four styles of jeans in sizes 4 – 24
Enjoy shopping for the new jeans and finding the ones you can enjoy wearing!
