Hi, I am looking for a couple of long tops suitable for wearing with leggings. I am curvy and want them to fall below the crotch for sure (despite what other people might be wearing these days).


Any suggestions?


Thanks!

These tops are best described as 'tunic' or tunic-length and as they are the style now, whether for curvy or slender, you can find them almost anywhere. Just google.

I can't recommend specific brands but personally everything I find (I'm petite) seems to be cut much longer than the old days so I can't find anything for me - have you looked at places such as TJMaxx, Marshall's, etc.? The majority seem to be long (unfortunately, they are also thin, cheap material - good luck.

Tunics are everywhere. If for some reason you can't find them in a store near you, go online to Macy's, Nordstrom's, etc. The women's catalogue "Soft Surroundings" seems to specialize in tunics. They carry all sizes, from petite through "women's", i.e. X-sizes.

Have you checked J Jill? They are kind of pricy, but I've always been happy with their clothes.

You have to got in to the store and try stuff on. Tops fall differently on different people based on body shape. I personally prefer tops that cover the crotch area ... but is always depends on the pants being worn with the top. If you are taller or are large chested this can be a little trickier as the space the chest takes up makes the front of the top fall at a higher point. Good luck.

Thanks, I am 5'5" and very long bodied. I also live in an area without those stores so I either have to travel or order online.


I definitely don't want thin material!

Thanks I will try Soft Surroundings...I'm in an area with few clothing stores, unless I drive a few hours.

I buy from them often but their style in winter isn't so much me. I will check them out though.
