Why you should shop small (but TALL) this year

First & most importantly, we get you.

Believe us when we say, we completely understand your shopping frustrations as a tall woman. Unfortunately the “normal” clothing market is not at all catered to your needs. The average national height is 5’4″, and that is reflected in the apparel industry today. We are two tall sisters, Amy & Alli, who launched this company in 2014 to fill a void that we had always experienced personally.

We understand “tall” from both sides of the spectrum.

At 5’10”, Alli had always struggled to find stylish, trendy & well-fitting pieces in traditional stores but yet had never been able to walk into another shop for tall women and have success, where she felt they always catered to women well above 6′.

At 6’3.5″, Amy has always wanted more variety in the selections and styles available to her at tall girl shops.

Between the two of us, there are over 5″ in height, plus extremely different proportions (more on that below), so we take all of that into consideration when curating and designing our clothes for tall women.

You don’t have to be a certain height to shop with us.

Here’s our biggest philosophy: We strongly believe that tall isn’t solely defined by height and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. What do we mean by that? Most people ask us what HEIGHT they have to be when they shop with us. Truth is, we don’t like to give a definitive answer. To us, height alone might not be the only reason for women to seek out a tall girl shop. We always tell the story of a customer who was 5’8″ but in need of 36″ length inseam jeans. To us, she wasn’t overly tall, but she was blessed with longer legs and therefore had a hard time finding denim that fit her.

It’s actually really common for women to be built disproportionately. Alli (5’10”) wears a 34″ inseam jean but carries most of her length in her torso and her arms.

…But it’s also common to see women who are long and tall everywhere. Amy (6’3.5″) wears 37″ inseam jeans, but is also built long in her torso and requires extra long sleeve tops.

No matter your height, your shape or your size – we focus on providing a great mix of inventory so every woman can find pieces that will work for her.

We categorize our tall inseam jeans with a number, not a label.

It’s true that some big box retailers provide tall clothing online.  This may or may not work for you, depending on your height, your proportions and what “tall women’s jeans” means to YOU in terms of inseam number.  Most retailers like to define the word tall as being one height, usually around 5’9″ or 5’10”. If you google GAP Tall or Old Navy Tall, you will find that instead of custom inseam options, you only have one category to choose from – “TALL”. We recently clicked into the jeans that first pop up when you use these google search terms, and found that these tall inseam jeans ranged from 29″ – 34″. If that’s not whatyour definition of tall is, you’ve found the right home at Amalli Talli. We offer jeans for tall women in 34″ – 38″  inseams and allow you to shop by your inseam length.

We’re not here solely for business.

Yes, our mission is to change the shopping experience for tall women, but it’s also so important to us to create a community where tall women feel confident and inspired to be the best version of themselves. Need more tall women to relate to, share stores with or encourage you? Join us on Instagram and Facebook, where we have more than 39k members combined!

Work hard, play hard is our motto.

We genuinely value your business.

Have you heard that saying “When you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance” ? This is SO spot on! As women of height ourselves, we are so passionate about the business we’ve created and we will always go above and beyond to make sure your experience with us is a great one.

Online shopping for tall women is tough and as we said above, we totally relate to your struggles. In an attempt to try and help out as much as we can, we created this online guide.  But because we do genuinely value your business, we are also always available to help you! When you call us, it’s like talking to a good girlfriend. We’ll help you with size & fit recommendations and give you our honest advice. We’re also available 24/7 at info@amallitalli.com.

Last but not least, we listen to our customer’s feedback and take it to heart! We’re still in the early stages of designing the Amalli Talli private label (custom made tall women’s clothing), and we really appreciate hearing your comments and/or concerns. This is as much your store as it is ours. We sincerely care about providing items you’ve always wanted but could never find, and crafting those items to fit your longer proportions at an affordable price point.

When you support a small business, you’re supporting a dream. Thank you so much for supporting ours!
