Finding maternity clothes that fit comfortably isn’t as much of a struggle thanks to a vast amount of high street stores and online brands catering for pregnant women. But finding clothes when you’re tall is definitely a challenge.
Not only do they have to feel comfy and adjust to your ever-growing bump, but they also need to fit your height. Whether you have longer legs or a longer torso and you find your bump popping out from underneath tops and jumpers, there’s a variety of factors that need to be considered when shopping.
We’re here to reduce the stress of shopping while pregnant as a tall woman, so if you’re looking for that perfect pair of jeans or a dress that reaches your ankles, we’ve got you covered! Mother&Baby has rounded up the best tall maternity clothes that are bound to make you feel and look incredible.
Where to buy the best tall maternity clothes?
For tall women, the most obvious place that springs to mind when shopping for clothes online is Long Tall Sally. Once the only shopping destination solely dedicated to taller women, the site has a vast array of clothes to suit. The maternity section includes three options for jeans and three options for leggings.
Many high street brands now include their own tall sections alongside petite, curvy, and maternity. So you will need to get a little creative when it comes to searching for tall and maternity together as the options won’t be so obvious.
Stores like Gap, H&M, M&S, Next all have maternity sections, so shopping for items that have options like longer legs for jeans, trousers, and leggings, or longline vests, t-shirts, and jumpers will all help.
For mums still looking to stay on top of the latest fashion trends, online stores like ASOS and Boohoo offer a maternity selection, but once again stick to items with a longer hem or leg length. Smaller brands like Seraphine, Tall Maternity Store, and Mamalicious all offer a selection of clothes for tall pregnant women or longer length options.

The best tall maternity jeans
These slim-leg jeans come in light blue, dark blue, and black and sizes 8-24. They’re super stretchy denim and feature a stretchy comfort panel, and because they’re not skinny jeans, they’ll be easy enough to slip on.
M&S maternity jeans are a cotton blend for a softer feel and with added stretch to fit comfortably. The skinny fit style grazes the ankle and comes in short, regular and long fit. The black and blue denim styles come in sizes 6-20 and the long fit is 33 inches measured inside leg.
Not your usual style of straight or skinny jeans, these relaxed bootcut jeans come in a dark indigo shade. The jersey waistband can be folded down or worn over the bump.
Mamalicious has a huge range of maternity jeans, with many offering longer leg options for tall mums. We love these slim fit style with the extra touch of leopard print on the ankles for an extra bit of fun!
Lily and Ribbon’s Sophia stone wash maternity jeans have won several awards and are one of the best out there. They come in longer length styles for taller mums.
The tall ladies love the jeans by Seraphine, and if they’re good enough for Kate Middleton, they’re sure to be a good investment. One reviewer said, “Amazing maternity jeans, especially if you’re tall like me at 5’10” (pre-pregnancy 65kgs) with a long torso. I got the UK10T. Leg length awesome, I wear them with a 2” fold at bottom. The waistband comes right up to your ribcage and as a result never falls down, I’ve never had to hitch them up, even after crawling around on floor after my toddler.”
The best tall maternity leggings
The M&S jersey leggings have rave reviews with many saying how comfortable the black over the bump style is. One mum-to-be said, “Excellent maternity leggings, comfortable and great to wear at home or out and about. I am tall and usually a 10 but got the 12 long (allowing for a bit of weight gain!) and it was the right thing.”
The leggings are designed not to be see-through and come in a variety of colours, as well as regular, tall and petite.
The ASOS tall maternity section has a variety of leggings and trousers to choose from. These black high-waisted and over-the-bump design will grow with your bump.

This denim coloured maternity tunic is perfect for pregnancy and after giving birth. The buttoned top half means mums can comfortably nurse their children without any difficulties.
This Gap soft short-sleeved t-shirt comes below the hips so will be suitable for a tall mum. The shirred details at the side mean the top will grow with you and your bump.

You can’t go wrong with a striped maxi dress. A style staple, this vest-style can be layered with a cardigan over the top or a long-sleeved top underneath for colder months, or worn without when the sun is out.
For those looking to stay sexy but classic, we love this two-piece dress and cardigan set from Boohoo. It’s bodycon for a tighter fit, but comes below the knees, and you can keep warm with the extra layer.
