While our taller sisters are usually described by the rest of us as stylish, graceful and lovely, they often feel otherwise when faced with the challenge of finding clothes that fit. From having to buy tailored shirts and blouses a size or two larger to get a long enough sleeve (which means putting up with droopy shoulders) or cropped pants that fit more like knee-length breeches instead of mid-calf capris, to the "short shorts" that looked like city shorts on the hanger, to say nothing of a correctly-proportioned rise or just the simple pleasure of an inseam that's long enough for once. However, those long legs that make the rest of us so jealous needn't be most challenging part of shopping thanks to the elegantly long-legged experts at Long Elegant Legs. All their trousers, leggings and jeans have 36" inseams and, depending on fit, a longer rise if need be; jackets, tunics and blouses accommodate longer arm lengths. The popular body-shaping skirt or dress is made to fit longer torsos, while built-in shaping will help keep your figure holiday-trim. And since no holiday can be considered complete without comfy stuff to lounge around in, good luck choosing between a sassy animal print, funky polka dots or cozy plaids.
