Dresses for Women Over 5’9’’

It can be difficult to find clothing that fits properly when you’re tall. Any time I purchase a dress, pair of shorts, or skirt online, I’m worried that when it arrives in the mail I’ll be bitterly disappointed by the length of the item. When I was 20, I liked it when my skirt came just below my butt cheeks. Now, at 27, I want clothing that’s age-appropriate―but still youthful and stylish. Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time shopping online, so I thought now was a good time to share the stores and shops I’ve had luck finding dresses for women over 5’9’’.

Places to shop for dresses for women over 5’9’’:

ASOS

I can’t say enough good things about ASOS. Not only is this my favorite place to shop for clothing that will work with my height, but the prices are excellent, they get new inventory all the time, and all of the clothes, accessories, and shoes are always in style.

Plus, the ASOS TALL brand is specifically made for women over 5’9’’. What this means is they don’t just add an inch to the hemline of your new dress or skirt. With this brand, everything is proportioned to fit ladies with a taller frame. Victory!

Banana Republic

Needing a more polished look? Banana Republic is a great resource for professional clothing for tall women. Killer slacks, versatile skirts, and flattering tops will fit you properly and be perfect for the office.

If you’ve ever put on a “knee-length” skirt that actually hit you mid-thigh, you’ll appreciate all of the incredible tall pieces Banana Republic has to offer.

Boohoo

If you love all things fashion-forward, look no further than Boohoo. I love shopping at Boohoo for trendy pieces, and, you guessed it, they have a fantastic selection of dresses for women between 5’7” and 5’11”. But it’s not just limited to dresses! You’ll find bodysuits, crop tops, jeans, sweaters, and blouses for tall women at Boohoo.

Missguided

Missguided is another great resource if you’re on the hunt for places to shop for clothes for tall women. Similar to Boohoo, Missguided is known for its on-trend styling options. Think off-the-shoulder dresses, lace overlays, and suede jackets. You won’t have to worry about your chic maxi dress touching the floor with Missguided’s incredible tall options.

Full disclosure, I want to note that on the Missguided website, it says their tall pieces are made for women over 5’7’’, so check the length details before purchasing.

J.Crew

J.Crew is another favorite place of mine to shop for tall clothing and dresses for women over 5’9’’. What’s great about J.Crew is they have a ton of options, in addition to dresses, that come in sizing made for tall women. Work skirts, colorful blazers, and even pajamas all come in sizing made for women with tall frames. Hooray!

Gap

Gap is a one-stop-shop for all things tall. They have a little bit of everything! I know as a tall woman, jeans can be incredibly difficult to find in tall sizes, and Gap has a great selection of denim. Whether you’re looking for something classic, distressed, edgy, or high-waisted, head to the Gap to find the jeans you’re looking for in a tall size.

Gap also has tops, dresses, shorts, and sweaters made for tall women. Like I said, a little bit of everything!

Athleta

Last but not least, I wanted to make sure you had a place to go if you’re looking for activewear in a tall size. Look no further than Athleta! Nothing drives me crazier than workout pants that don’t reach my ankles, and I don’t have that problem with Athleta. Plus, everything at Athleta is incredibly cute and ALMOST makes me look forward to my Orangetheory classes. 🙂

I hope this list helps all of you tall ladies out there find clothing that’s made to fit YOUR body. I know it can be tough, and it’s easy to feel discouraged when nothing fits right, but hold strong! There are brands looking out for you and your gorgeous long legs.

    Hi Cameron!

    I appreciate the list you’ve compiled for clothing for tall women. I’m rather surprised there aren’t more online shops to list. Do you have an idea why some of the online tall shops have closed? I use to shop with Tall Girl online and can’t find them anywhere.

    Thank You!
