Women’s Tall Sweatpants: Winter Edition

This has been one cold month so far! Usually we are selling more yoga pants than anything else in January, because lots of people make health resolutions in the new year. But so far, women’s tall sweatpants with super warm linings have been the best sellers by far. It’s also clear I’m not the only one who’s been cold! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Read further to see the top picks in women’s tall sweatpants this season:

1. These Inno Sherpa Polar Fleece Lined Jogger Pants have been our top seller so far in January. Prime eligible and under $40, they also have great reviews and will keep your long legs warm all winter. Available in 8 colors and up to a size 4X, their tall inseam is 34″ and their extra tall inseam length is 36″. There’s also a handy phone pocket and drawstring, too. But the real selling point is the sherpa polar fleece lining.

2. For right around $40, these Yogipace Fleece Lined Thermal Straight Leg Pants come in tall inseam lengths of 33″, 35″ and 37″. They are available in black, navy and grey, and have two different pocket options. These are also Prime eligible and have been popular with Search By Inseam customers. The outside fabric is water resistant and the inside is fleece lined for warmth. Sizes range from XS to XXL.

3. The Athleta Altitude Pant in Polartec is what I personally wear for most of winter. And fall and spring, too, actually. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The quality is high and the price is higher than the first two options, with a price tag around $119. But if your size is still available after Christmas, you can often snag a great deal. These are currently on sale for $69.97 and the tall inseam length is 35.5″. I’ve been buying these pants for close to 10 years now. They wash up well and hold their shape. I love them for walks outside, underneath ski pants, and hanging out around the house, too. They are really versatile. Sizes are XXS-3X and they come in 3 colors. I usually get black or navy, but they also come in grey and maroon.

4. These LTS Tall Black Cord Kick Flare Leggings are a triple threat: comfy, cozy and cute! Made of comfortable stretch corduroy fabric, they have an elastic waistband and flared legs that pair great with sneakers. Available in sizes 4-20 and inseam lengths of 34″ and 36″, these ship from the UK and currently cost $50 USD. These are unique women’s tall sweatpants because it’s not hard to dress them up with a pair of heels and playful top.

5. With an extra high waist, these PowerChill Slim Bootcut Pants from Old Navy promise to keep you warm during your chilliest activities. There’s an interior back pocket that fits your keys and cards, while the omission of front pockets gives you a sleek silhouette. The women’s tall inseam length is 35″ and these are under $20.

7. Yes, these tall yoga pants say they are men’s, but they were highly reviewed by lots of women in the “Tall Girl Approved” Facebook group. They say these Idtswch Tall Yoga Pants fit really well, even in the crotch area. The pants have pockets and a drawstring waist, and come in lots of colors and inseam lengths. Tall inseam lengths are available in 34″, 36″, 38″ and even 40″! They are around $40, depending on color and inseam length, and are Prime eligible.

8. Finally, I’m including the TJL Tall Corduroy Pant in this post because it is a heavier weight fabric and has an oversized, relaxed, casual fit. These pants can be worn in place of sweatpants, and can elevate your look while still keeping you warm and cozy. They are made in the USA, are under $45, and have a super long 37″ inseam length! These tall women’s pants have pockets and an elastic waistband.

Best Maternity Jeans for Tall Women

Before I was even pregnant, I remember thinking it would be impossible to find tall maternity jeans for my 35″ inseam. But by the time came, there was one pair on the market that fit me wonderfully: a dark wash Citizen’s of Humanity boot cut maternity jean in a 35″ inseam. They were perfect! I did pay almost $200 for them, but they served me so well through not one, but two pregnancies, that I thought the price per wear was worth it. So what are the best maternity jeans for tall women available today? I’m so glad you asked! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are my top 10 picks (this post contains affiliate links):

  1. Tall Straight Leg Maternity Jeans from The Elevated Closet. These dark blue maternity jeans are soft and stretchy and have an adjustable belly panel. In a super long 37″ inseam length, these are the longest tall maternity jeans I can find on the market right now. They are available in sizes 2-20, making these not only the tallest maternity jean out there, but also the tallest plus size maternity jean out there as well.ย  I love that these are made by a small woman-owned business (featured in my post about Tall Women-owned Businesses) and you can get 10% off your first order when you use the code SEARCHBYINSEAM at checkout.

Not just for cowgirls, these tall maternity jeans make the list for their 34″ and 36″ inseam lengths (petite pregnant women can take advantage of the 30″ and 32″ inseam options). Available on Amazon in a dark wash and a medium wash, and in sizes 0-19. These jeans have a lower rise panel that sits under the belly for a low to mid rise, depending on how you’re carrying your precious little one.

  3. LTS Tall Maternity Mid Blue Skinny AVA Jeans. Looking for some tall skinny maternity jeans?ย  Usually skinny jeans have a shorter inseam length that stop at the ankle. These 36″ inseam maternity jeans come in sizes 8-20 and feature an over-the-belly panel.

  4. Maternal America Maternity Skinny Jeans. These jeans are not super long, but still make the list for tall maternity jeans at a 33.5″ inseam length. Tall reviewers who need a slightly longer than normal inseam length say they are perfect. Shorter reviewers say they are too long. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They have 5 pockets, a good amount of stretch, and gentle distressing. The under belly panel is stretch knit and gets good reviews for staying in place. You’ll get free shipping and returns on these from Nordstrom.

These have a tall inseam length of 34″ and a full panel. They are under $65 and are available at Buckle, where you’ll pay $6.99 for shipping within the US, or get free shipping if you live near a Buckle store.

If you aren’t pregnant in the winter, live in a warmer locale, or don’t care about covering your ankles, you might like these skinny maternity jeans.

7 Best Corduroy Pants in Every Length

Corduroy season comes but once a year. Don’t miss out on these classic wardrobe staples, because you won’t see them again until next fall! Here’s the roundup of the best corduroy pants in every length. This post contains affiliate links.

  1. Gap High Rise Corduroy ’70s Flare Pants with Washwell. These cords come in ivory and brown and in a ton of inseam lengths: 30″ and 31″ for petites,ย  32″ for regular length, and 34.5″ and 36.5″ for tall women. I love that Gap added .5″ to the tall sizes for just a little extra length for heeled boots. Brown corduroys are quintessential fall, but ivory is unexpected and stylish. Yes, you can wear white after Labor Day, and an all-white winter outfit is so chic!

  2. Banana Republic The Relaxed Flare Corduroy Pant. In black, navy, and beige, these cords have a luxurious sheen that is akin to velvet. I love the shape of this relaxed flare leg because it gives the pants a classic and dressy trouser look that will never go out of style. Inseam lengths come in 31.5″ for petites, 33.5″ for regular length (which is actually on the taller end of regular length) and 36.5″ for long length (more of an extra long length, if you ask me ;)).

    3. UpWest Wide-Leg Cord Pant made from Mindful Materials. These soft corduroy pants are made in a 31.5″ inseam length and have super cute front patch pockets. They come in a beautiful ash grey and a redish brown. Wide leg pants look great with chunky fall boots, and I love how easy they are to pull on and take off. Skinny leg jeans and pants are so clingy, and I just love a relaxed leg for comfort and ease.

    4. Old Navy Higher High-Waisted Wide-Leg Corduroy Pants. In heritage green and a beautiful rusty umbria, these cords certainly highlight two beautiful colors of fall. The pants are available in regular and plus sizes, as well as a 29″ petite inseam length, 31″ regular inseam length, and 34″ tall inseam length. The regular 31″ inseam length goes up to a size 30, while the petite and tall lengths go up to a size 18.

    5. Lands’ End Sport Knit High Rise Corduroy Elastic Waist Pants. If you want comfort as well as style, these are the pants for you! An elastic waist is such a gift this time of year. Who doesn’t want to have a little room to expand at the dinner table on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day? ๐Ÿ˜‰ These cords feel soft and supple and have a tapered leg. Available in sizes up to 18, the petite inseam is 27.5″, the regular inseam is 30.5″ and the tall inseam length is 32.5″.

Jeans and Pants for the Fall Season

Evidently, it’s officially autumn! It’s sweater weather! I’m putting away my shorts and sizing up jeans and pants for the fall season. The weather changed quite suddenly here in the Pacific Northwest, and we’ve certainly plunged into cooler temperatures and rain. I don’t know about you, but after I’m done back to school shopping for my kids, I feel like it’s my turn for a closet refresh! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Fall is such a great time for new clothes. The rich colors of these pants remind me of fall’s changing leaves: yellows, reds, browns and greens. As a matter of fact, we have all of these pants and jeans (and more!) at SearchByInseam.com, where you’ll find short and tall inseams – and everything in-between for men and women of all sizes. Not sure what inseam length you need? Watch our new video on how to measure your inseam.

Firstly, these Tall Alina Wide Pants are a beautiful mustard yellow, which is a great color for fall. They have an extra long inseam length of 37″ and come in women’s sizes S-XXL. More colors are also available.

Corduroy is a classic fall fabric, and these men’s Cooper Straight Leg Corduroy Pants in Curry are going fast! They would be perfect men’s attire for a fall family photoshoot because of their rich curry color.

More colors are also available.

Another great color for fall is dark green, as can be seen in these men’s Obey Easy Cord Pants in Dark Cedar.ย  They have a comfortable elastic waist and an inseam length of 29.25″.

Next to corduroy, leather is also a popular fabric for fall. And if you’re trying to be animal-friendly, want a low-maintenance fabric, or just on a budget, faux leather is the way to go! These Tall Khaki Green Stretch Leather Look Leggings are fun, unique and come in 34″ and 36″ inseam lengths.

Rust is another great color for fall and I love it in these ribbed flare stretch pants! These come in a 33″ inseam and can be dressed up or down; they’re super versatile.

Brown can be such a warm and rich color. It’s softer than black and is perfect for fall. These Tall High Waist Flare Dress Pants in Brown have an extra long inseam length of 37″. More colors available in sizes XS-XXL.

As far as jeans go, I love dark wash denim and fun colors for fall. These men’s Skinny Caramel Brown Hyper Stretch Jeans are an unexpected shade of brown. They would be great for a causal office, dinner date, football game or family photoshoot. Men’s inseam lengths come in 30″, 32″ and 34″.

Dark wash denim is classic and classy. Furthermore, a pair of straight leg or bootcut jeans in a great navy hue will never go out of style. These Wrangler Women’s Retro Mae Mid Rise Stretch Boot Cut Jeans come in over 20 shades of blue, inseam lengths of 30″, 32″, 34″ and 36″ and regular and plus sizes.

How to Measure Inseam Video

I’ve been wanting to make a how to measure inseam video for months now, and finally got around to it! Since it’s summer, both my kids are around during the day and I needed their extra hands to film and edit this video. My husband also helped with the editing, so it was a whole family project. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, why does inseam matter? Knowing the length of your legs is one of the most important measurements that will help you find a great fit. Just like waist and hip measurements, inseam length determines whether you’ll wind up with highwater pants, hemlines that drag on the ground, or a perfect fit. While you can buy jeans and pants that are too long and take them to the tailor for professional hemming, shopping for your exact inseam length will save you time, energy and money. Who doesn’t want that?! If you’d like more information about tailoring, check out this post about how to find a good and inexpensive tailor. But if you’d like to find the perfect length for you without dealing with a tailor, keep reading.

As this how to measure inseam video shows, you want to start with a pair of jeans or pants that fit you well in length. You’ll also need a measuring tape. Any kind will work, but the flexible sewing measuring tapes are easiest for this task. Here’s a cute pink sewing measuring tape on Amazon, if you don’t already have one. Now take the jeans and lay them flat on a table or the floor. Smooth them out and turn them so you can see the inside seam on one of the legs. Use the measuring tape to carefully measure from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg. This number (in inches) is your inseam length. After you know this important number, use it to shop for your exact inseam length at SearchByInseam.com.

Thirdly, Sassy n Tall is a tall woman-owned small business started by Canadian Corina Taylor that specializes in tall women’s t-shirts made of sustainable eco-friendly bamboo and cotton. These shirts are designed for long tall women, but lots of women who aren’t tall and are just looking for a long shirt to cover their rear ends are also fans of these. They are soft and luxurious and I own three of them in different styles and colors. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can check out my full review here. Corina has designed and manufactured them in Canada and ships worldwide. When I ordered mine, she put them in the mail on the same day!

Fifth on the list is Gi Wear, a Black woman-owned small business specializing in tall girl approved athleisure wear. ย Gi Wear was founded by 5’10” Sheree Hudson. Sheree had a hard time finding activewear leggings that were long enough for her legs, so she decided to create her own! Gi Wear carries 36″ inseam leggings, athletic skirts, crop tees, gym bag and more. Leggings and skirts come in sizes small to 2XL.

Before and After Jeans Makeover

I love a good before and after makeover, don’t you? It’s so fun to see the comparison pictures and see how much better the after photo looks – at least most of the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Well here is a before and after jeans makeover that I’m excited to share with you!

Dale contacted me recently and said, โ€œEven though 30 inch inseam is not an unusual size, it is hard to find none the less. Lately I have had to buy long ones and feel like a 1950s kid with cuffs.” He included this picture of his jeans that were too long and had to be cuffed:

Dale's jeans are so long, he had to cuff them.

He went on to say, “Looked at your business web site. Easy to navigateโ€ฆ Went to menโ€™s pants and could not find 30 inch inseam carpenter pants.โ€ I always love to help people find exactly what they are looking for. It’s the reason I started Search By Inseam! ๐Ÿ™‚ So I searched online and found these Leviโ€™s Gold Label Carpenter Jeans for him that I thought would be perfect. I sent him the link and I got this โ€œafterโ€ photo a few days later with the words โ€œSatisfied customer.โ€ That was music to my ears!

Are you looking for a pair of jeans or pants that are hard to find? Let me know! I’m happy to provide extra personal service and Iโ€™d love to help you find the perfect fit.ย  Everyone deserves to look and feel good in clothes that fit them well. Would you like a before and after jeans makeover?

Shop Search By Inseam for the exact inseam length you need. And check out this related blog post on Best Stores for Men’s Shorter Inseam Lengths.

Our New Website is Live!

After months of hard work and lots of late nights, our new website is live! Hooray! The last major update to the site was all the way back in 2014, so it was time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Since over half of our customers are shopping on their phones now, I talked to the graphic designer I worked with on the last update and told him I wanted the new site to be way more mobile-friendly. He suggested I look at Shopify because it can automatically resize the website to any phone, tablet, or laptop. And anytime a new size of phone comes out, it will incorporate that as well. So Search By Inseam is now running on Shopify and so far, so good. This blog is still on a WordPress platform, in case that is interesting to anyone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The new header image is a compilation of models from our different sellers. I looked for happy, smiling models that were more representative of our customer base. It was really hard to find any models who were smiling! Why do most models look so serious?? This is the first time we’ve had a male model on the homepage, too, so that’s fun. Search By Inseam is the best place for women and men to find jeans and pants in their exact inseam length, and I wanted the main photo to convey that. It was a fun treasure hunt for me to search for models of different genders and backgrounds wearing a mix of jeans and pants.

Also new and super cool in this build of Search By Inseam is the addition of women-owned small businesses in our product offering. In the past, we’ve only had jeans and pants from major brands, so this is really exciting! One of our new sellers is both woman-owned and Black-owned, which is doubly special. TJL Collection is “where fashion, fit and length meet.” Run by Tiffany Jones-Lewis, who stands 6’1″ tall, you’ll find extra long inseam lengths of 37″ and 38″. Her creations are colorful, fresh, and fun, and even include tall jumpsuits! How hard are those to find anywhere else?

Another woman-own small business we’re now featuring is The Elevated Closet. Owned and operated by Jordan Smith, a 6’4″ former WNBA player, the mission of The Elevated Closet is “to empower all women to follow their dreams with confidence and style!” For 10% off your first order, use the link above (or any Elevated Closet product link on Search By Inseam) and use the code SEARCHBYINSEAM at checkout.

These great changes make me super excited about our new website! Our goal remains the same: to help women and men of all sizes quickly and easily find jeans and pants that fit well. We’ve already helped thousands of customers find tall, petite, short, average, maternity, and plus-size bottoms, and our new website will enable us to help even more people.

Tall Sustainable Clothing – Review of Sassy n Tall T-shirts

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.ย (Order 3 shirts for free shipping.)ย 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.
