Just wanted some recommendations on some good, modern jeans, 34 inch inseam in size 16 or 18. I don't like the way the Lane Bryant's fit me at all. NY&Co jeans are OK. Old Navy's are OK but they seem to be more bumming around the house kind of jeans vs. nice going out jeans.

Tall Women's Clothes by Long Elegant Legs - Clothing for Tall Women and Tall Womens Clothes

Hope this helps. Just got a catalog from them. Havent ordered anything yet so I cant vouch for them.

Sizes go up to size 18. Sometimes tall sizes can be way oversize tho.. They have 36"inseam and even some 39" inseam jeans. Also regular clothes tops dresses etc. .


Edit: Click on "site map" to find jeans etc.

I've ordered pants from LEL, but I was disappointed in the quality.

For jeans, you might want to check out Eddie Bauer's tall jeans. They carry up to size 20.

Have you tried Gap? I know they carry Extra Long online (they're not available in store), but I'm not sure what size they go up to. You can always order from online and return to the store if you aren't happy with the fit.

Also try Lands End or LLBean. How about mens jeans that are sized by waist and inseam?

Torrid?
I love their clothes, I wish I could fit into them.
My best friend used to be absolutely crazy about them.

Jenn, I feel your pain. Just a soon as I found the perfect jeans for me at Lane Bryant, they discontinued the line...story of my life.
I have gotten some at Eddie Bauer, but their sizes run small, so go up a size or two. Also, my last pair was Lee, relaxed fit straight leg, from JC Penny. Not only do they fit well, but they were only about $25. The long is 33" which is just long enough for me.

Express has really nice jeans that may work. Their sizes run big too.

I am NOT a fashion guru nor up on the latest fad. but I kind of like the St Johns Bay jeans at Pennys. I have seen tall in those sizes. Now I don't care for those really low waisted, but they do have some that are comfortably right below the waist. And have a nice little flare at the bottom, and legs not too skinny nor wide
Good luck!
