The Tall Girls Guide to Workout Leggings

Are you a girl like me who is always trying to find a pair of leggings that reach your ankles? Do your full lengths end up ‘fashionably’ cropped? Lets not get started on a 3/4 length. 

The struggle is too real my friends.

While a 7/8 legging can be cute and casual (and timely for those hot summer workouts), sometimes us gangly gals need a great fitting pair of full length workout leggings that are actually full.length. 

We all know how it feels when bad fitting activewear puts you off your game, and how detrimental it can be to your workout. Whether you’re trying to lift a PB, or run one more lap of the track, us taller girls of the AIS #stylecrew have done the “leg” work for you. We’ve taken the liberty of pulling out our favourite longer length tights, designed to stretch the full length of your long ’n’ lean pins, with qualities and features to enhance what mother nature gave you. Because tall girls wanna workout in style too.


A much loved brand from our main tall girl Zanna Van Djik, the L’URV collections are inspired by nature and colour. They come in an amazing array of subtle or striking prints, with on-trend panels and unique seam detail that flatter the female body in all its glory. Flat stitched seams, double waistband, soft fabric and anti-rub constructions provide comfort and support to your workout or everyday life. Being compression fabrication they will keep you held in while providing full range of movement as well as aiding your muscles in reaid and moisture wicking properties. 




Of course, being the fittie extraordinaire she is, Zanna has gone and designed an activewear collection of her very own. The fabric and shape of the legging is especially designed to stretch and mould to your body from your waist down. So whether you’re a teeny bit taller, or reach lofty heights over your friends, you’re bound to fit in these bad boys. Also on a side note, for the shorties out there, Zanna’s BFF Tally Rye wears them as well, proving that they are a style for whatever heights we may reach in life. Matching BFF sets as well everyone?
