I'm in no way tall, I am about average. I am almost 5'6", but every time I go to a clothing store everything seems so short. For instance, dresses are like shirts on me. There is no way I can wear a lot of dresses without pants or leggings underneath. Skirts are way too short, exposing my bum or close too it, so I wouldn't even be able to sit in it :S
Or shirt are just too short too. I don't get it :S Anyone else notice this?
I feel as though the majority of womens clothes these days are made by men. If this is true you might want to go to the complaint department and tell them about large chested women not having much to wear without feeling objectified.
I do NOT mean this derogatorily, but...do you have...a large bosom? I only ask, because, I'm also just over 5'6", and the the trends right now, seem to gear towards flatter chests.,large chests kind of...lift them a few inches...
I gave in and bought lots of leggings. Also, there are those of us who...just don't care to have our butt hanging out...apparently though, it's trendy. If I wear a skirt, I prefer to add leggings. The only time I don't wear leggings is with pants and shorts...(though I have seen people work shorts with leggings in some right ways.)
Go with it! Get lots of cute legging colors! I have grey, a few black pairs, and teal and plan to get more...I love layers personally, they're really playful and really expand your wardrobe!
They need a "I have a chest, thank you very much." section at stores...like "Hello, don't forget about us! We also like to buy clothing!"
I've been having the same problem for years. I've always been tall and had trouble finding clothing that fit me. It doesn't help that I have curves. Right now I'm 5' 8" and finding pants and long sleeves are even more difficult. So you're not alone.
