When the sun is shining and warm weather is all around, women's tall shorts are a basic necessity. Everyone knows the summertime staple is tank tops, shorts, and flip flops. So, you'll definitely need several pairs of shorts to get you through the heat. Some of the tall options you will come across are women's bermuda shorts, denim shorts, khaki shorts, and cargo shorts. They are, also, available in a variety of long inseams, from 5" shorts to 10" shorts to 12" bermudas.
While only a few of the stores below carry ladies long shorts in actual tall sizes, all of them offer shorts in longer inseams, giving tall women extra coverage. Of course, the great thing about being blessed with long legs is that you really get to show them off when wearing shorts. Isn't being tall wonderful?
