Warm Up Your Workout With Women's Tall Workout Pants

Tall women now have many new choices in tall workout pants. Looking good while working out will help you to stay motivated and feeling great. There is nothing worse for a tall woman than shopping for tall workout pants only to find they are too short. Lately, many retailers have finally designed some new options in tall workout pants. They come in all kinds of styles and materials with inseam lengths up to 37" long
Tall Yoga pants are a great choice for tall workout pants. Tall yoga pants are able to move with your body and yet support you in all the right places. They sit on the hips, which automatically create a couple extra inches and make your waist and torso look long and lean. These are also a great option to wear around the house and running errands as they don't pull or bind around your waist.
Many tall workout pants are now made with great fabrics. Some of these fabrics draw moisture away from the body keeping you dry throughout your workout. Look for summer and winter weight fabrics and a dazzling array of colors new to the markets. Some great fabric choices for tall workout pants include velour, jersey, fleece, terry, and spandex. Also, look for more organic materials now with many retailers promoting eco-friendly products.
More great options in tall workout pants are designer tall workout pants. Juicy Couture is a great brand for tall workout pants that you can also wear as every day pants. They look and feel terrific! Designer Vince makes a tall workout pant made out of cashmere. I probably would be selective about where I would wear these, as they have to be dry-cleaned or hand washed. I imagine they would feel incredible! LOVE YAYA is another designer that makes designer tall workout pants with a wide-leg pant, one of the best styles to flatter any figure.
Most tall workout pants are only found on the Internet, as many of the regular stores do not stock tall sizes. Now that there are new choices in women's tall workout pants, go grab a pair, do something good for your body, and look great doing it.

Tall Woman Survives Shopping Trip to Mall

When the phone rings at five o'clock in the morning it's usually a bad sign. I answered the phone to find out my mother was in the hospital and I needed to take an emergency trip out of state. I scrambled to make arrangements for my older children while I would be gone. Then I hurriedly packed my suitcase with a few items of clothing for my baby and myself and drove 7 hours to get to the hospital.

What I thought would only be a few days visit, ended up being much longer. Guess what? I did not bring enough clothes and the clothes I brought were pretty strange looking. As a 6'1" tall woman, I prefer to shop online as I can find exactly what I need easily and hassle-free. In my desperation I ventured into the mall to find a few shirts. Luckily I had actually brought some decent tall pants, but I needed a few tops. Here is how I survived shopping in a mall where women's tall sizes are extinct.

I ventured into a department store and immediately tried to find a tall salesperson to assist me in finding some clothing as I figured they would understand how best to help me find clothing that fits my tall stature. To my dismay I could not find anyone tall working there. I quickly scanned the area for the sharpest dressed saleswoman. I finally found one that was extremely helpful.

I explained to her that I needed some tops in longer lengths. She found some great options for me and I even ended up with a few 3/4th sleeves jackets that were really cute over my longer tunics and shirts. As this store did not have tall sizes it took quite a bit of searching to find what I was looking for. Had I not been aided by a friendly salesperson that was familiar with the store, it would have been a nightmare.

I made sure I had an open mind, as some of the items suggested did not look too great on the hanger, but I loved them once I tried them on. I was also able to educate the woman as to what looks great on tall women as she kept handing me small printed shirts and I was able to explain that tall women need to keep everything in proportion to their size- meaning bigger patterns and strips etc. I was pleasantly surprised that what could have been a shopping fiasco turned into a fun experience.

Although I still prefer to buy tall sizes and I have my favorite tall stores to shop in, thanks to the help of a great saleswoman, I was able to survive my shopping trip to the mall.
