Size & Length Guides


At Tall by Design we have designed our garments based on the extra requirements of a tall woman, they are made longer in the leg, arm, body and rise. All Tall by Design garments have been fitted around our model and proportionately adjusted to ensure they fit most women that are 5' 10” / 1.78m and taller.

The following charts are a useful guide to help you select the closest size that will suit your shape and height.

It pays to check the body measurements initially to get an idea of our sizing.

How to measure your body

Bust – Place tape measure around the fullest part of the bust and record the measurement.
Waist – Place tape around your natural waistline and record this measurement.
Hips – Measure the fullest part of your hips and record this measurement.

Leg Lengths

We offer 2 leg lengths, an inside leg seam of either:
- 90cm (35.50 inches)
- 95cm (37.50 inches)
The best way to measure this, and to determine the most suitable length for you, is to lay flat a pair of trousers that you currently own that are a good length and then measure the inside leg length from the crotch seam to the finished hem. If you do not have a pair of long pants, measure from your crotch to the floor, you should be close to one of the above measurements.
As you know, garments can be shortened but not lengthened so choose longer rather than shorter!
* Imported Jeans are in varying lengths – see individual product for length.

Top Lengths

Our tops are all long in the body and sleeve and are made the same in length from size XS – XXL. They do however vary in length from style to style. Lengths provided are measured from the back neckline to the end of the garment.

Skirts/Dress Lengths

Our skirts and dresses are all made extra long. Lengths provided are measured from the back neckline or waist, to the end of the garment.
