Tall Purchases: A Tall Woman’s Perspective on the Lululemon Wunder Under Pant

Elevated Style | Lululemon Wunder Under Pant

I’ve been meaning to post about these WUNDERful pants for months now!

I received the Lululemon Wunder Under Pant as a gift (thanks Clint!) and have been wearing them happily ever since.  I know what you’re thinking: aren’t these pants see-through? The truth is that I haven’t found them to be see-through at all. The trick? Size up and do some impromptu yoga in the fitting room! I did a downward-facing dog in front of the mirror,  just to make sure!

The Wunder Under Pant is not available in tall sizes, but the 30.5″ inseam is long enough for me; these pants are so stretchy that even at 5’10” I end up with a pool of fabric around my ankles. If you do need a longer length, the Groove Pant, Still Pant, Astro Pant, and Studio Pant II from Lululemon are available in 35 – 35.5″ inseams.

Stay tuned for a full review, complete with photos!

Tall Purchases: Finds from J.Crew

Elevated Style | J.Crew Tall Purchases

Above are two of my most recent tall purchases from J.Crew. I had to order them online since J.Crew rarely carries tall sizes in store (so lame!). I’m still waiting for them to arrive. Hopefully both items fit—fingers crossed!

  1. The J.Crew Tall Midrise Toothpick Jean in Carbon. After having much success with the J.Crew Midrise Toothpick Jean in Distressed Indigo (as seen in this post), I decided to invest in another pair of tall J.Crew jeans. These jeans have a 33″ inseam, so I’m expecting them to just graze my ankles. I ordered them in size 29T. 
  2. The J.Crew Tall Blythe Blouse in Silk. I needed a simple blouse that was versatile enough to tuck into skirts and wear over pants. At 29″ long, this tall blouse is about 2″ longer than the regular size. I ordered a size 6T.

Look for a full review on these tall items in the coming weeks!

Tall Purchases: J.Crew Work Dresses

J.Crew Tall Dresses

Above are two of my most recent office-approriate tall purchases from J.Crew. I had to order them online since J.Crew does not carry tall dress sizes in store (so lame!) and I’m still waiting for them to arrive. I ordered size 4T after trying on the regular sizes in store. Hopefully they fit—fingers crossed!

  1. The Tall Memo Dress in Super 120s in heather flannel (on sale). This dress is perfect for fall and I’m in love with the pretty heather gray color.
  2. The Tall Emmaleigh dress in Super 120s in black. I’ve had my eye on this dress for quite a while. It’s the perfect black office dress that I never had. It’s such a classic style and I’m hoping that the tall size will be flattering on me. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

Readers: Have you tried on either of these tall dresses?
