Happy Earth Week! I thought this was the perfect time to do a post about tall sustainable clothing. Did you know that bamboo is one of the fastest-growing and most sustainable plants on Earth? Bamboo is more eco-friendly to grow than cotton because it requires less water and less space, and it also doesn’t require the use of pesticides, insecticides, or even fertilizer. Whereas cotton crops use 25% of the insecticides and 11% of all pesticides used in the world! Amazing, right? I also think bamboo is super cool because it naturally absorbs moisture, is very breathable, and is totally anti-microbial! It’s also very soft to wear, which I love. 🙂
I was browsing around on Facebook last month and happened upon a new small business for tall clothing that I hadn’t heard of before: Sassy n Tall. This company was started by another tall female entrepreneur like me, who happens to have a similar name to me, too: Corina! 🙂 We hit it off on a Facebook video call and I just had to order some of her tall t-shirts. I’m not someone with an extremely long torso, but I’m definitely not into the crop top shirt trend, either. 😉 I do usually order tall size t-shirts from Eddie Bauer, Old Navy, Gap, and Lands’ End. Sometimes I find that Nordstrom and Shopbop will have shirts that are long enough for me, too, even though they are not technically tall clothing. But all of Sassy n Tall‘s t-shirts are made by and for tall women, which makes it easy.
I also read a review of someone who’s not tall, but just wanted a shirt to cover her backside, so you don’t need to be tall to appreciate these shirts. 🙂 As you’ll see in these pictures that Bellevue, WA Photographer Ling Ling Zheng took, the shirts are great coverage for yoga poses. I don’t always care about covering my rear end, but I do when I’m in leggings of any kind. 🙂 We took these photos at the Bellevue Botanical Garden at the end of March.
I often wear t-shirts with straight hems, but I like how the rounded hem looks, especially from the side. These tees are longer in the front and back, but shorter on the sides. They are tall sustainable clothing because they are made from Oeko-Tex certified bamboo. Every shirt is designed and manufactured in Canada.
In both of the above photos, I’m wearing the Sassy n Tall Scoop Neck – Still Got It Tee in Mid Heather Grey. It’s a nice light grey for a light summer like me. But I really love these next t-shirts in pink and blue, because I just feel more “me” in color. 🙂 Here’s Ling Ling getting a fun shot of me through some of the only flowers that were blooming at the time. I’m wearing the Sassy n Tall VaVaVa Voom V-Neck T-Shirt in Fandango Pink. These tall dark wash jeans have a 34.5″ inseam and are Joe’s Honey Bootcut Jeans in Rikki and were bought at SearchByInseam.com.
I really prefer to tuck in the front of my shirt because I have a pear shape (which I learned through an awesome Adore Your Wardrobe class) and it’s more flattering for my body type. I just look frumpy when my clothes hide my waist. So I was very happy to see that these Sassy n Tall shirts actually stay tucked in! Here’s another shot of me with a tucked in tee and jeans:
This is the Sassy n Tall Scoop Neck Still Got It Tee in Stellar Blue. I think this color is my favorite, but the pink is a close second. I asked Corina if she’d have other colors like white available, and she said if she gets enough orders, she’ll run another color. These bamboo shirts are all soft and you can tell they are well made. I love a high quality t-shirt! All the Sassy n Tall shirts are designed and manufactured in Canada. I had a great ordering experience, and Corina got my shirts in the mail within hours of receiving my order of these three shirts. (Order 3 shirts for free shipping.) I am wearing a size small in all these t-shirts. I’m 6′ tall and 160 lbs. This is not a sponsored post; I paid for the shirts with my own money.

These shirts look SO good on you!
Thanks Ling Ling! I love the photos you took! 🙂
Sustainability is becoming more and more important and our earths resources are depleting. This is my small contribution to reducing the amount of garbage in the landfill from fast, fad fashion having designed these long T shirt for tall women. By purchasing fewer clothing items we are able to become more eco friendly effortlessly. Thanks for your wonderful blog and for Ling Ling’s gorgeous photography. 💜
You’re so welcome! Thank YOU for making such a great product for me to purchase and review! 🙂
