This Brand Perfected One-Piece Swimsuits for Tall Women

Finding a swimsuit that makes you feel comfortable, in a style that fits your body and your vibe can be totally daunting. And with the return of one-piece swimwear, a particular set of ladies are experiencing more difficulty than most. Yes, tall girls — we’re talking to you. So why is this trend so tricky? From torso to leg openings, we’re breaking it down and solving the problem at long last, thanks to the experts at Long Tall Sally.


The body of the suit has a tendency to be too short as well, because, of course, not every tall woman has model-length legs. If you do have super long stems, you still want to look well-proportioned, and the high-cut 90’s redux swimsuits out today can feel problematic (and leave you looking like you’re all legs). The struggle for a great-fitting maillot? It’s very real.

The folks at tall women’s e-tailer Long Tall Sally feel your pain. They know that making pieces that work for women 5’8″ and above isn’t just about adding inches. In addition to clothing, shoes, and accessories that are all designed proportionally (that includes pocket placement, hems, and hip placement), they offer swimsuits built perfectly for the tall woman’s body, just in time for beach/pool/lake season. So yes, you can wear a one-piece this summer, like this Illusion Swimsuit ($88).

What makes the swimwear, like this Monochrome Swimsuit ($78), so great? Aside from retailing under $100, Long Tall Sally’s offerings come with extended shoulder to underarm proportions and a longer body length.

Each one-piece, including this Printed Illusion Swimsuit ($88), also boasts a leg rise cut lower for longer legs, as well as tummy control.

All of that translates into a bathing suit (like the Multi Strap Swimsuit [$78]) that fits well, looks chic, and feels comfortable. Stylish swim that democratizes a trend? Yes. Please.
