The 5 Most Important Measurements Every Tall Woman Should Know

As a tall woman, finding clothes that fit and flatter can be a challenge. But, by understanding your key measurements, you can make the shopping experience easier and more enjoyable. Here are the 5 most important clothing measurements every tall woman should know:

  1. Inseam: This is the measurement from the crotch to the bottom of the pant leg. For tall women, finding pants with a longer inseam can be a struggle. However, by knowing your inseam measurement, you can easily search for pants that will fit your legs. If you plan to wear heels and want the pants to come to the floor while in heels, make sure you measure your inseam from the crotch to the floor. Knowing both your ankle and floor length inseams are very important when shopping online for tall clothing.

  2. Torso Length: This measurement is taken from the top of your shoulder, down to your crotch. For tall women, it's not uncommon to find one-piece swimsuits, bodysuits, rompers or jumpsuits that are too short in the torso. Knowing your torso length can help you find one-piece items that will fit comfortably and not ride up.

  3. Sleeve Length: This is the measurement from the top of your shoulder to the wrist. Longer sleeves are a common problem for tall women, so it's important to know your sleeve length in order to find shirts that fit well.

  4. Neck size: This is the measurement around the base of the neck. Finding shirts with a collar that fits well can be difficult for tall women, especially if you have a larger neck. Knowing your neck size will help you find shirts that fit comfortably.

  5. Dress Length: This measurement is taken from the top of your shoulder to the desired length of your dress. For tall women, dresses that are too short can be a common problem. Knowing your dress length can help you find dresses that fit comfortably and flatter your figure.

By understanding your key measurements, you can take the guesswork out of shopping and find clothing that fits you perfectly. It's also a great idea to keep these measurements written down in your phone or on a piece of paper in your wallet, that way you have them on hand when you're shopping in-store or online. You'll save yourself a lot of hassles when it comes to returns.

Furthermore, it's also important to remember that everyone's body shape is unique, so it's good to have a tailor on speed dial in case you need to make any minor adjustments. With the right measurements and a good tailor, you can find clothes that fit and flatter your body, and make you feel confident and stylish.
