In high school, I finally discovered pants that came in ‘tall’ or ‘long’ sizes, which saved me from wearing what had looked like high-water pants. Since then, I’ve tried out numerous brands that offer longer sizes such as Gap, Express and Banana Republic, to name a few.

A recent find for me came from Ann Taylor―the Tall Compact Doubleweave Pants. These pants are so long that even in heels, they almost hit the ground! According to Ann Taylor, here’s the difference between regular and long pants:

  • Waist placement is lowered 3/4″
  • Inseam is 35″ (my inseam is 33″ for context)

I rarely find long sizes in the store, but anntaylor.com has a great selection of long sizes for tall women.
