One of the great injustices for tall women is the lack of in-store clothing options. Over the years, our options for reliably good fashion with longer inseams and properly proportioned sleeves and waists have expanded thanks to online shopping, but in-store collections have yet to catch up—and that is, unfortunately, never truer than when shopping for elusive long-torso bathing suits. E-commerce giants like ASOS and Aerie are just two of the many sites that offer robust collections for the 5’10”-and-taller set, but the sad fact remains that most of our wardrobes must be purchased on the depths of the Internet—the in-store options are severely lacking.

In the past, some people considered one-pieces matronly or prudish. But right now, they’re having a major fashion moment. Styles range from more feminine (with scalloped detailing and ruffles) to downright sexy (with cutouts and high-leg designs). If you’ve got a long torso, though, shopping for one of these super cute one-piece bathing suits can be a minefield.

I love a bikini as much as the next girl, but lately I’ve been drawn to the siren song of the one-piece. Unfortunately, standard sizing for one-pieces doesn’t really accommodate the long expanse from my hips to my shoulders. If I’m lucky, I’ve got a mild camel-toe situation. Worst case scenario: The straps will dig into my my shoulders, and any breast padding will inevitably settle an inch or so lower than it should. Plus, I’m probably rocking some kind of wedgie. Not exactly what one might consider a bathing beauty.

To add insult to injury, some sites will tout certain styles as “long-torso friendly” rather than actually expanding their collections. Adjustable straps and ruching are the bane of my existence as a tall woman. Sites will write about those features as if they are real solutions, completely ignoring the fact that they don’t change the ratio of the rest of the suit to accommodate long torsos and taller women. Darts and leg openings never fall exactly where they should, and necklines just stretch out and cause strain on our necks. (This is especially true of “adjustable” halter styles). We deserve better!

While I’m not holding my breath for long-torso bathing suits to be widely available in stores (though, if any retail executives are reading this, pretty please get on that!), these 20 long-torso swimsuits are all available online. And you bet your long torso they’re all made specifically for tall gals.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
