This Affordable Clothing Site Is A Holy Grail For Tall Women

Need an outfit for a last minute wedding? Graduation? Vacation?
No matter your shape or size, Asos is your new go-to for all things fashion.

Whenever someone so kindly offers up a compliment, it’s only polite to follow with where you got said cute item. It’s simply fashion etiquette. More times than not my response is “Asos,” which surprisingly warrants a confused look from most. I can’t help but feel giddy pleasure knowing I turned someone onto what I consider to be one of my holy-grail online retailers.

The U.K.-based brand is a fashion destination for all shapes and sizes with specific lines for curvy and plus-size, maternity, petite, and (most importantly for me) tall.

Whenever I’m in a bind and don’t have time to try on (and regrettably send back) the flirty summer dress, jumpsuit, or shoes I ordered in exchange for the correct size, I have no hesitation heading to Asos. Standing at nearly six feet tall, I say this confidently: I’ve never had to return anything due to ill-fitting or shoddy misrepresentation on the website, thanks in part to each item’s correlating video showing how it moves and looks on a real person.

The tall-specific sizing guide is spot on, and though I’ve had no experience with petite or plus-size purchases, if they’re anything like my experience with tall, I’d assume they’re pretty accurate as well. And if you fall in the in-between sizes, our other editors can vouch for the main collection featuring your standard small to extra-large sizing guide.

With reliable standard and express shipping, you can throw away your worries of going naked to your next event. If you become a frequent impulse shopper like myself, it might be worth investing a mere $19 a year for Asos’ own version of Amazon Prime, Premier Delivery USA, giving you unlimited two-day shipping whether you’re spending $2 or $200.

Trust me, this comes in handy more than you’d think.

As you can see below, I purchased the Asos original square-neck jumpsuit in tall and striped wide-leg jumpsuit from the main collection, both the week before two major life events—college graduation and my best friend’s wedding. (I know, I have impeccable timing.) Once I hit “confirm order” my fashionable fate (and pre-planned Instas were in their hands. As they’ve done many times before, my packages arrived on time, even with a day to spare!

Since sporting both pieces, I’ve recommended the affordable clothing retailer to several friends and strangers, so it’s safe to say Asos is making its way around and remains one of our office’s favorite stops for everything summer. Shop my top picks from Asos below.
