Summer Dresses at Affordable Prices
When you are a woman on the taller side, people may assume dressing your frame is a breeze. You’re of “model height,” so everything should only fit like you are on the runway, right? Nope. As any girl of elevated stature can attest, the purchasing experience can yield any number of too-short sleeves, casual clamdigger pants and maxi dress hems that just are not long enough. The struggle is very real.
Thankfully, in this age of human anatomy diversity and positivity, more and more manufacturers have wised up to the needs of a varied population and are offering their products at “long” and “tall” lengths. Stores like ASOS, Boohoo, Dorothy Perkins and Banana Republic all carry ranges specifically for vertically lucky women. Long Tall Sally provides said women with a one-stop shop of multiple brands with pieces sized especially for them. What a time to be alive (and tall)!
With summer, aka maxi dress season, quickly approaching, you’ll want to make sure that your closet is stocked with easy, breezy style for every kind of occasion. And yes, you’ll want the option of wearing heels. You might be 5 feet 9 inches or over, but it doesn’t mean you must be a captive to flat shoes.
