I find the shirts with the outlined bust area (like a built in bra) always look like no one above a B-cup could fit into them.
Most pants are tight in the thighs and loose at the waist.
With leggings, the inseam is generally a standard 29"! They should at least offer more choices. What about us tall chicks? I have a 33" inseam and don't want to walk with cold ankles.
It's like if you're tall and curvy with a slim waist, you're screwed.

As far as inseams go the average height for a woman in North America is 5'4" so that's the reason most inseams are made to fit that size. Lots of stores carry long, short and regular inseams. It wouldn't make sense to make a regular inseam 33" because then it would be way too long on most women. It sucks but you just have to find stores that make jeans for a long inseam. It also depends on the store because if you are shopping in a more low end clothing store then they are not going to offer variety in the inseams because is is much cheaper to just manufacture one standard length. Here are some stores that offer jeans with long inseams-
As far as the sizing in the shirts go I think it also depends on the store you are shopping in. Sizing in sores are crazy nowadays with vanity sizing. I can fit into a 00 at some stores and a 4 at another, so I find that you just have to find a store that has a fit that suits you. Some stores have a fit that suits a shorter frame and some have a fit that suits a longer frame, its all about finding the right one for you. It's unfair but a lot of places just cater to short and skinny women. By reinforcing the whole 'skinny ideal' they make consumers feel bad about themselves which feeds the diet market and makes consumers more likely to buy vanity sized clothing. It also makes consumers more likely to buy 'slimming' clothing and to shop more as a way to make themselves feel better.1
