Oh, the eternal struggle for tall women - finding a pair of jeans that actually fits! Chance are, even if you find a pair with a long enough inseam, you'll end up with a rise that's too low or a pair that pulls funny around your thighs and hips. The fact is, tall women are built differently than shorter women. It's not just a difference in height - it's a difference in body size and shape. If you've ever thought to yourself, "I wish a designer really understood how to fit clothes for my body," then you're in for a treat.
A few years ago, twin sisters Lynn and Kate decided they were tired of trying to find a pair of jeans to fit their 6'2" and 6'3" frames, and set out to make a line of jeans themselves. After a lot of hard work, TallWater Jeans was born. Their current collection includes the Elle Bootcut jean, the Kat Flare jean and the Brooke Yoga Pant. Not only do the jeans sport a 38" inseam and the yoga pants a 37.5" inseam, the entire fit is perfected for a tall woman's body. Here are a few of the highlights:
- More room at the hips and thighs to account for an hourglass figure
- Higher rise in the front and back to help prevent unseemly muffin tops and plumber's cracks
- An inseam long enough to wear your jeans with heels
- Wider leg openings so the flare can balance out a taller frame
Personally, I'm pumped about the extra-long yoga pants. I practically live in workout gear and finding pants that I can comfortably move around in has been a nightmare. Not only does the TallWater pair have a long inseam, but they have a V-cut waistline, a cute flare and nice seam placement. Definitely the type of pants a tall woman should wear to the gym.
Other features to love about TallWater? The jeans are made in the great U.S. of A., so you can feel good about supporting our national economy. Also, the stitching blends right into the fabric giving you the flexibility to dress them up for the office.
