I'm despairing slightly at the moment as finding clothes to cover all 6 foot of me is tough at the best of times, but I'm now pregnant too it's totaly impossible.
I could do with a pair of smart trousers (min 34" leg) and I'm going to need a dress for attending a wedding in May (by which point I'll probably be huge)!
Can anyone suggest shops or a reasonably priced local dress maker? I've managed to get some jeans long enough in topshop, but can't find anywhere that does longer length tops and dresses and the only smart trousers I can find are rather cheap and nasty looking.
Sadly it seems long tall sally stopped doing maternity wear quite recently!
try long tall sally -i am 6 ft and buy lots of trousers (they go up to 36 inch inside leg) and skirts from there and i think they do a maternity range??? they do mail order on the net as well. Also Boden do some longer trousers but not sure on maternity. I got a lot of maternity wear from Hennes which came up long
Unfortunately LTS seem to have stopped doing maternity clothes, will have a look at H&M tho, didn't realise they did them do they have the matrnity stuff at any of the oxford street shops do you know? Beanpole bumps may solve the trouser problem too, Thanks.
It's not in SE1 but Pretty Pregnant in East Dulwich (North Cross St) imports a lot of its stuff from Holland so the trousers are always long. I bought two pairs there last year including some fab black trousers which I had to take up (I'm 5 foot 8). My 6 foot 2 Dutch friend got most of her maternity wear there. They also have a branch in Marylebone.
Nr work (Chiltern St, Marylebone) there seems to be a clutch of maternity shops, huddled up near the bridal shops (handy, that), and also LTS and a couple of places that make large sized shoes for women.
It's an odd neighbourhood (you can also get a range of Indian musical instruments and woodwind instruments, as well as pubic hair dye - each from a different shop, of course), but something there might suit your purposes.
Absolutely nothing to do with maternity wear, I am an old f**t with grandchildren, but Chiltern St is a goldmine, not only LTS bur also Grey Flannel, best, eclectic mens' outfitter in London. Always worth a visit.
( and no, you don't have to be over 70, last time I met a deputy Governor of the bank of England ) Sorry, did that put you off.
