Finally, tall girls everywhere can rejoice and find peace of mind knowing motherhood is no longer synonymous with the “shortcomings” of today’s fashion trends.

Introducing Mommy Long Legs, a line of tall maternity clothing.

Mommy Long Legs offers tall maternity clothing with extra inches added in all the right places.  Pants are available in different styles and with 34, 36 and 38 inch inseams. Our new line of tops (available Fall 2010) includes items with extra length added to the arms, belly, shoulders and torso.

Who needs tall maternity?
It is estimated that 12% of the babies born each year are to women 5’9” and taller.  On average, there are over 4,000,000 births in the United States each year. This means almost a half million tall women are pregnant annually. Yet, this group of consumers is consistently overlooked by industry standards!

Outsize apparel, or products that are specially manufactured and/or marketed as petite, plus and tall sized, remains the most dynamic segment of the apparel market.
