Tall, Plus Size Jeans with 36" Inseam

It’s time to dress for Summer weather with this pair of white, tall, plus size jeans with a 36″ inseam. Made by Svoboda Premium Jeans, they have a trendy back flap pocket. They also have a tiny touch of spandex, so they will move with you, but will hold their shape. They are finished off with gold and silver stitching and gold hardware. When choosing your size, keep in mind that they run a half size too big. Sizes 12T-24T. These jeans were at Kiyonna but are since sold out.

Tall Clothing Mall’s New Feedback Friday

We get quite a few emails of suggestions for tall stores, and various other products. So starting once a week we will have Feedback Friday -featuring some of the top emails we have received. As always, you can leave comments below blog posts or send us an email at admin@tallclothingmall.com.

From Jheri- regarding Ginormica
“I was very shy in school being too tall, too thin, too pale and too hard of hearing. I used it as an excuse to go into my own shell and felt sorry for myself. The fact that I was the tallest in my family by the time I was 12 didn’t help much. But I did improve and by the time I was 20 or so, I found that I was proud of what I looked like and my height.”
“When I run into a teenager who is tall I tell them to get involved in some activity in school. It can be anything, but something where others will recognize and value their efforts. It gives them a better sense of value.”
Thanks Jheri for your great suggestions and words of wisdom.

Judy suggested a few tall stores:
“Like your site – very informative. Looking forward to exploring it further. I would like to tell you about my favorite store (I didnt see it on your site yet – you should really get it on) it is called Long Legs Fashions For Tall Women www.longlegs.ca . I have bought so much stuff from them and the shipping and customer service is wonderful. The quality of the garments exceeded my expectations. You should look into them and www.simplytall.net. I have purchased a few things from them too that i have been happy with. I’ll let you know if i think of any more things that are good for the tall woman.”
Thanks Judy!

What do you think of "Ginormica"?

I went to see the movie “Monsters vs. Aliens”. Overall I thought it was pretty cute. For those who haven’t seen it, the premise is that Susan is hit by a meteor and is transformed into a giant woman called “Ginormica”. At first she detests her height, but then learns to tolerate it and then finally she grows to love it!
I think it’s a pretty good message for us tall women as most of us have gone through the same cycle. When I was a jr. high age, I hated being taller than everyone. In high school I learned to tolerate it and began to feel comfortable in my own skin. Now it seems the older I get, the less I care what people think about me. I have embraced my height by creating Tall Clothing Mall and I hope to inspire other tall teens and tall women to make the best of the assets they have inherited! If you have seen the movie, what did you think of Ginormica?

Hotel Rooms for Tall People

I have never thought about searching for hotel rooms for tall people as most beds are made long enough for me. However, this could be an uncomfortable problem for extra tall people. I have heard of some people pulling up a chest or table at the end of the bed to accommodate long legs that are hanging off of the bed. What a pain!

I was looking through a blog called, “Tales of a Tall Girl” and noticed that she had a link to Kimpton Hotels. They have specially made 96 inch long beds made for tall travelers. You have to ask for “a tall room” when making your reservation. View more info and cities that have hotel rooms for tall people.
