Nordstrom.com always has a huge selection and good quality, and many items on sale. Even if you are a hard-to-fit size, there is usually something that will work. Their inventory is huge. Service is great.

JJill tall women's clothes are better quality fabric and manufacture than most. The fit is pretty good except they sometimes do not add extra torso length, so you end up with an "empire" waist dress you weren't expecting. Their styles are all very casual like you plan to walk on a beach all day, with breaks for yoga and pottery class.

Lands' End tall clothing is almost exclusively knitted fabric. I heard this is because knits are easier and cheaper to manufacture than woven fabric. But it often results in an ugly product. So many of the Lands' End tall women's clothes would be great if they'd just make them in better fabrics. And if they'd actually add length to the torso the way they say they do. Half the tall dresses come with a waistline that is practically "empire." You end up looking like Holly Hobby.

Long Tall Sally still has the best selection of tall women's clothing, shoes, and accessories anywhere. Their styling has improved. Now if only they'd lower prices a bit and use better fabrics!

JCrew Talls is cheating tall women by not adding extra length to torso anymore. Fabric quality has also gone down. Variety of styles has also decreased.

Sadly the tall women's clothing at AnnTaylor.com has declined in fabric quality, tailoring detail, and sizing. Often they are not adding extra length in the torso anymore.

I love eShakti's custom fit because I am a very tall woman. I love how I can experiment with designing necklines, sleeves, and lengths, even though sometimes this results in disasters! Service has been superb, with orders delivered in the specified time frame. Every item I've received has been as promised: customized as I requested, correctly sized, and well-sewn. I did return one dress, because I had customized it very badly and it looked quite dowdy. It took a while to receive the refund, and they did deduct shipping, but I chalk that up to experience.
I am mystified that people have had bad experiences with eShakti and I'm really sorry to hear it, because all of my eShakti experiences have been exceptionally good.

Tip for consumers: Make sure to get your measurements taken by someone who knows how to do it,and pay the extra few dollars to have your dresses customized to fit you perfectly.
