Leggings, tanks, zip-ups & more exclusively designed for the leggy set – finally!
There a lot of perks to being an amazon, but finding clothes that fit? Not one of them. And when it comes to activewear, the struggle is even more real. Case in point: leggings that fit like capris and/or never reach your actual waist, long sleeve tops that in torturous fashion always manage to stop just short of your wrists and tank tops that never cover your bum…not to mention your camel toe. All leading you to opt for the next size up to fit in length, but ultimately leaving you fixated on your falling, oversized or otherwise ill-fitting workout attire instead of your workout itself. Present company included, we can’t even count how many times we’ve had to hike up our leggings mid-run because they fit in length but are swimming – and therefore slipping – at the waist.
Which is why we were happier than a tall girl on a date with someone even taller to discover the #TALLERANDSTRONGER campaign from leggy girl retailer Long Tall Sally. Anchored by a genius collection of active and athleisure wear specifically designed for women 5’8″ and above, the campaign also features an online fitness destination chock-full of exercise videos, fit tips, nutrition advice and more exclusively for tall women. Expect fitness fuel like these four workout videos designed to target and strengthen tall ‘hotspots,’ complemented by 5 Ultimate Tall Girl Exercises and 16 Gym Hacks For Tall Girls – all designed by three, 5’10” and above amazon fitfluencers.
The workout gear? Think leggings, tanks, zip-ups, sweats even swimwear all crafted to fit and flatter the tall girl figure, properly and proportionally. Alongside the Long Tall Sally range you’ll also find a capsule collection from fashion-forward fitness label MPG (Mondetta Performance Gear), who’s teamed up with the leggy leaders to offer pieces fusing their signature fashion-meets-function aesthetic with the perfect tall girl fit. In short, MPG x LTS is designed to work out as hard as you: leggings with a longer rise and longer inseam, tall-fit tanks, and jackets that cover your wrists – all with leading performance fabrics and technology.
