I was so excited to discover that Boohoo has a tall range, and as I had a 20% off code I had to order a few bits and see what it was like! Now Boohoo do state that their tall range is for people 5'7" to 5'11" and as I am on the top end of that at 5'11" I wasn't holding my breath that the lengths would be any good, but as returns are free and I was ordering a standard size top anyway I thought it was worth taking a chance.
To get an idea of how they fair I picked out some jeans (for leg length), a long sleeve top (for sleeve length) and a dress (for length in general). Here's how I got on...
First up, the jeans. (I cut my head out of most of these photos as I was getting sick when I took them and was pulling some kind of weird derp face in most of them.) These are the Tall Hara Ripped Knee Skinny Jeans and I ordered a size 12. I am a 10/12 depending on the store/fit and the 12 was fine in these and they do have some stretch in them. As you can see, they are high waisted and the length is great. I need at least a 34" leg in skinny jeans for them to be ankle length, longer for flares or bootcut styles. I didn't measure the leg but I would say they are 34.5" or 35" inside legs. I did end up sending these back as I felt like the knee rips were cut slightly too high, although looking at these pictures they look OK. And secondly I am trying to be more picky about pocket placement on my jeans and the back pockets on this pair seemed slightly too high, but that just a personal preference for me. The jeans are £22.
Secondly, the long sleeve top. It's the Tall Lora Long Sleeve Basic Swing Top and comes in black and white as well as this burgundy/wine colour. As your can see see the sleeve length is great. The fabric is super soft and hangs really nicely. It is £12. I'm wearing the 10 here.
Finally, the dress. I find that a lot of 'tall' brands still insist on making their dresses far too short so my test for this one was whether I would feel comfortable wearing it with bare legs if the weather ever warms up. Well yes, yes I would. Again, it's a soft fabric and hangs nicely and could we have some warm weather now so I can wear it styled with white pumps exactly like this please? This is the Tall Haidee Oversized T Shirt Dress and comes in black, mocha and grey marl in addition to this khaki/army green. It's just £12 so I'd quite like the grey one too I think. This is a size 12.
And that concludes my round up. This is not a sponsored post, I just think that the tall range is quite new to Boohoo so if I didn't know about it then it's possible other tall ladies out there don't know either. Would I order from it again? Yes I would, as the prices are cheap to begin with and there is almost always some sort of offer on for a discount or free shipping. The quality is comparable to that of much of the high street and shipping is fast: my order arrived a day before they said it would, even on standard delivery.
