Oh Facebook groups…how I love thee! Let me count the ways!
- I have found SO many gently used second hand items in buy/sell groups
- I am constantly discovering new tall brands thanks to the recommendations of others
- It’s fun, enlightening and interesting to discuss topics surrounding life in the tall lane with other tall people
I could go on and on but those are my top 3 reasons why I love some of the private tall-themed Facebook groups that I’m in. So without further ado, here’s my list of some of the best Facebook groups for tall people! I’ve broken them into 2 categories – Fashion/Advice Groups and Buy/Sell Groups.
Fashion and Advice Groups
This group was started by the fabulous Sallee Poinsette-Nash in 2016 with the goal of being an empowering & supportive space for tall women around the world. With over 6,000 members, this is a very active group and women share everything from fashion finds to tall struggles to issues with confidence and everything in between! A few months ago, Sallee asked if I could help be one of the Admins for the group and I happily accepted.
I just recently joined this group and am LOVING it! It was started by the fabulous 6’3 Abby Leach and the sole goal of the group is for people to share their tall fashion finds. The finds generally still have to be available to buy and it’s recommended you provide a link so that other people can check out the items you’re showcasing. With almost 9000 members, there are tall fashion finds galore in this group and it’s really helpful to see how various tall clothing looks on other ladies.
This group was started in June 2020 when Long Tall Sally announced that it was going out of business and describes itself as “advocates for tall women’s clothing and footwear”. The mission of the group was to find alternatives to LTS since LTS had been such a staple in tall women’s wardrobes for decades. Now that LTS has been bought by another company and is still in business, the founder of the group is working with the new owner of LTS to relay what tall women want to see from them. With almost 6000 members, this group is very active and members are constantly sharing their tall fashion finds.
OK…indulge me here while I give a shout out to my newly created group. My hope for this group is that it will become a place to discuss where and how tall brands make their clothing and to share tall ethical fashion finds. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that these topics are very important to me. Feel free to join if this is a topic that interests you!
This is another group started by Abby Leach as an extension of her blog and it has around 2200 members. Rather than describe the group myself, I feel like sharing the “About” section of the group sums it up nicely “Face it – it is HARD being a tall girl. The clothing (or lack thereof), the comments, the stares… Let’s unite by sharing recommendations, stories, advice, and guidance with each other! Anything from “please tell me where I can find a maxi dress” to “I was told for the 56th time today that I am tall” is welcome here!”
The lovely Karen started this group as “A place where tall women across Europe can share information on all things tall related (clothes, furniture, health, humour and much more)”. Since I miss living in Europe, I really enjoy seeing all of the recommendations that people make!
Buy/Sell/Trade Groups for All Things Tall
As the name suggests, this is a group where you can buy and sell not only Long Tall Sally items but any tall clothing or shoes. With over 7000 members, there are a lot of deals to be had in this group! It is UK-based but below you’ll find similar groups in the U.S. and Canada.
UK-based and started as an extension to the Long Tall Sally Buy/Sell/Trade group, the about section of this group describes itself as “a group for families with children (and partners) whom have outgrown their clothes or shoes. It is essentially a community group, offering advice, buying, selling, giving away and ‘funnies’.”
With 2000 members, this group is the place to be for Canadians who are looking to buy or sell tall clothing.
This group is a great place to buy and sell Long Tall Sally items and other tall items in the U.S. It has over 2000 members!
This group has 3000 members and the About section gives the info and rules for selling “This group is for the buy/sell/trading of any specialty TALL WOMENS clothing within the USA. Pants should be at least 35″ in length, and sleeves and general cuts should be specifically for tall women. Any size 00-30W+ is welcome. Shoes are fabulous too, but must be at least a size 10 womens.”
Well there ya have it! The best Facebook groups for tall people. Are you in any other groups that I didn’t mention here? If so, leave a comment below to let me know about the group!
