Tall Shopping Road Trip Series: The Netherlands

Thanks to this year’s Tall Speciality Shop Challenge, I’ve been obsessed with searching for as many tall women’s clothes stores as possible because being able to shop in person is such a luxury and so darn fun!  Since I knew I’d be visiting the country with the tallest population in the world in April, I spent HOURS scouring the interwebs for tall shops in the Netherlands.  Finally, I found Langzijn.nl which was just the resource I was looking for. Definitely check out this site for all things tall in The Netherlands.

Here are the tall clothing shops in The Netherlands that we’ll visit on this road trip:

Pretty Tall (Two locations)
Tall People by Passo
Long Lady Fashion
All About Eve (Two locations)
Lange Dame (Two locations)
Kramer Mode

It’s only around 456km (283 miles) and 5.5 hours if you start in Groningen and wind your way around to Alkmaar. Considering my work commute used to be 140 miles per day, this seems like a piece of cake!  If I split it up into two days, it’d be like two days of commuting but way more fun. Totally doable, right?  Of course, I’d have to stash away my pennies for a good while to be able to afford so much shopping but a tall girl can always dream.

Click on the icon in the upper left of the map to see a full list of stores or click on the red place markers in the map for more details including each store’s website.  Also, feel free to play around with the map using the buttons at the top right….share it, download it, open it in Google Maps etc.

How fun would it be to road trip it between all 8 of these tall shops?!

Your turn…
Do you know of any other tall shops in The Netherlands that aren’t on this list? Have you ever been able to shop at a tall speciality store?  Where was it located and how was your experience?

    So much fun to read! Ironic even considering I'm Dutch and didn't even know all these shops. You even put a map together! cool!

    This would be a fun road trip indeed, visiting all these shops, 2 days indeed, including fitting (fitting doesn't mean buying per se… 😉 Let me know, I'm always up for a roadtrip! 😉

    Btw, I know those distance probably seem peanuts to you, being American, but my country easily fits in Texas, so to us Dutchies, driving 2 hours is kind of a thing…

    Glad you enjoyed it! Wouldn't it be so fun to get a group of tall ladies together and travel around to all of these shops? I think 3-4 days would be better than 2 since we'd probably need a few hours at each shop AND we'd also want to enjoy what the country has to offer other than tall shops. I totally agree with you regarding different point of views on driving distances! What seems like a piece of cake to one person is a long journey to another. 🙂

    I'm crazy jealous! Who doesn't love a good hunt! You're going to need another suitcase.

    I'm game. Since my 2nd job is of a travel agent, if there's enough interest, I'll put a tall girl shopping trip together. Let me know what you all think.

      A tall girl shopping trip would be AMAZING, Krista! I bet there would definitely be interest in that.

    Great concept with a tall women's international shopping trip! The stores wouldn't know what hit them! 😉

    […] After work, I drove to Hoofddorp, which is a town very close to our main Airport Schiphol. Tall owner Inez chose Hoofddorp for its convenient location in between North Holland and South Holland, our two most heavily populated provinces. Her other shop is located in Apeldoorn, which is more to the East. (If you’re interested to know where exactly, check out Beth’s Tall Road Trip in NL post!) […]
