For tall girls, size

The label “tall” or “long” is not common in American stores’ girls’ sizes. The “tall” designation is not common until women’s and misses’ sizes. Girls with long legs and torsos will struggle to fit into average or regular clothing. Tall girls who try to squeeze into regular or average sizes will find their skin exposed from either average shirts that don’t reach the waistline or average pants that look more like capris.

Height plays an important role in height, but it is also important to consider how tall a girl is. This chart is from the Centers for Disease Control National Center for Health Statistics. It shows that the average height for six-year-old girls is 45 inches. A tall six-year-old girl is 49 inches. The 50th to 94th percentiles of girls are considered average in height. Girls over 95th percentiles or more are considered tall.

How to shop for a tall girl

These are some tips for shopping for tall girls:

  • Many clothing brands offer adjustable waistbands that allow pants to be adjusted to your size, even if you need to purchase a size larger than the waist.
  • If in doubt, especially when ordering online, check the size chart. Size charts should indicate the length of the torso and the inseam for each size. This information is helpful when trying to find a dress that fits tall girls.
  • It is best to measure before you shop to determine the size and length of your order.
  • Measure the inseam without your pants on, starting at the crotch and ending at the floor on the inside leg.
  • For a full torso measurement, measure from the shoulder to the neck, down the spine, to the waist.
  • To determine the length of your sleeve, if your tall girl has long arms, measure from the top to the wrist.

Depending on her age, she may have to wear clothes in the juniors’ section. Juniors are longer than girls’ clothes and have a smaller waist. The juniors’ section may have plus sizes and longer-cut clothing beyond size 6.

Embrace Your Height

Being taller than girls your age can make it difficult. It is a mistake to reduce your girl’s height with regular-sized clothes. She will look not only awkward but also uncomfortable. Wear leggings to reduce long legs and torsos. You can also wear skinny jeans with a tunic or a knee- or calf-length dress or thin jeans with leggings. Wear skinny jeans with a tee and leggings underneath a mini-skirt for a more pronounced look. If you’re able to use your height well, being tall shouldn’t be a problem.
