What Our Tall Ladies Love (5'9+)


The too-short hemlines. The sleeves that don't reach your wrists. Tight torsos. It's not easy buying clothes when you're tall! 

Here's what some of our (tall) reviewers are buying:

1. La Femme Apero - Apero Dress Midi

Designer Tidbits: founded by two Parisiennes in New York City, making ultra-sophisticated dresses with the French je-ne-sais-quoi. Doesn't everyone want to dress like the French?

"The fabric of this dress is so soft and luxurious! I wear it in the summer when I have an occasion, wedding, bachelorette party, or a date, it makes me feel beautiful. On this picture, I’m wearing it to a brunch date! It’s as easy and comfortable to wear as a slip dress, but the seaming and waist panel make it more flattering and also much more supportive at the bust."

2. Ava James NYC - Madrid Dress in Blood Orange

Designer Tidbits: a size-inclusive brand (everything is available in sizes 8-18) that makes beautifully tailored dresses for those dressier moments - yes, they're coming back! 

"The dress fits perfectly! It hides what I need it to hide and accentuates exactly what is most flattering for my figure. Also the back is so elegant with the deep V! I love this dress."
5'9-5'10, 175lbs, Size 12

3. Seventy One Swim - Reversible Bandeau Top in Black / Teal

Designer Tidbits: a relative newcomer to Revvie, Seventy One Swim's signature is the innovative hand-embroidery on their pieces that was pioneered by two designers themselves. We also the striking and bold colors that hold up in selfies!

"I absolutely LOVE this product. I haven’t been able to stop wearing it since it arrived. The best part is not only that it is reversible so I can change the styles whenever I want but the fact that it holds me in and complements my body. I am a taller and curvier lady and have a hard time finding bikinis that fit me. I will hands down be buying more products from Seventy One Swim. Also, I have received more compliments both in person and on IG than I have before from any bikini I own. That’s saying a lot considering I am from Hawaii, where my day to day outfit consists of wearing a bikini. Looking forward to seeing this brand grow. Thank you!"

4. Thirteen-Seven - Hand-Dipped Shirt in Crisp White / Jet Green

Designer Tidbits: this brand's for the ladies with bigger busts. If your shirts gape at the chest (also known as "boob gape"), this the brand for you. Founded by Mya Goldberg, 13-7 was made for the ladies with sizeable girls.

"I love my thirteen seven shirt! I don't have to worry about boob gape at all and I get tons of compliments on the hand-dipped style. The shirt is comfortable and fashionable."
5'11-6'0, 200lbs, Size XL

5. Ava James NYC - Chicago Dress in Green

Designer Tidbits: another one from Ava James NYC for the tall ladies. 

"The dress is well-made. The fabric is pretty thick and the silhouette is cut to fit your figure well. I got a size 10 and it fit me well. The slit is high if you're tall but works if you're aren't 5'11 like me! The long sleeves makes it feel super fancy and a good fit for work and evenings out."

5'11-6'0, 168lbs, Size 10
