I’m just under 5ft 11, and I have to confess while I love being tall there are times when I’m out shopping for special occasions when I struggle to find what I’m looking for on the high street which fits perfectly. I’m a huge fan of Long Tall Sally, they specialise in clothes for women 5ft 8 and over, and not only do their clothes fit me perfectly, they also always have something I
A few weeks ago Long Tall Sally were kind enough to send me a fabulous dress to wear for Britmums Live, but as some of you may know I didn’t manage to make it to the event this year due to events beyond my control. However, it’s such a versatile and frankly beautiful dress, I’m sure I’ll get to show it off lots this summer!

The Lace Print Pleat dress is stunningly patterned, and is guaranteed to turn heads. The dress is 98% cotton with 2% elastane, so it’s perfect if you’re like me and want a dress which can withstand chasing a toddler around a garden party and still look great at the end! The black band around the waist cleverly creates (or enhances!) the appearance of a waist, making it an incredibly flattering style whatever your size.
The neckline on the back of the dress has a clever V-neck which I think is a fabulous touch of femininity, and I’m tempted to always wear my hair up just to show off this neck line – it’s so flattering!
I found the dress fitted me perfectly, and the on-line size guide was very accurate in helping me decide which size to choose! The dress feels fabulous, looks great and priced at £70.00 I think it’s a must have dress for tall women this season.
