I didn’t realize how many independent tall fashion brands are out there that have been created by other tall women until last year when I started doing market research in this area. What is frustrating is when you try to Google tall fashion brands it is really hard to find these brands because all of the big brands rank first in the Internet searches. Therefore, the main purpose of this blog is to build awareness about these wonderful brands that are bringing changes to the tall women’s clothing market.
No One Knows a Tall Woman More than Another Tall Woman
As many of you may already know, I am in the process of starting my own fashion brand called Longings Clothes for Tall Women that will focus on Coats and Jackets for tall women. I was inspired to do this mostly due to lack of stylish coats and jackets that I could find. I would buy from a big brand offering tall sizes but not specializing in them. Whenever I bought from these brands I was constantly faced with disappointment. For example, the jacket sleeves would not be long enough or the overall portion was off. The nice thing about buying from one of these brands is that nobody knows our clothing needs and challenges better than another tall woman. They are not just adding inches to patterns, they are using actual tall fit models during their development process.
Filling Gaps in the Market
From coats, plus sizes, lingerie, casual wear, sexy dresses and jumpsuits, luxury dresses, pants, jeans to professional work wear these women started these brands to provide unique shopping experiences to fill the gaps that we have in the tall women’s clothing market. We no longer are subject to non-stylish, unimpressive and ill-fitting clothing.
Tall Women Supporting Tall Women
I am big believer of women supporting women and it is needed now more than ever. These women are taking major risks to bring needed changes to the tall women’s clothing market. Please see the brands below for yourself and help spread the word!
