If you’re like me and spend days working from home, several good pairs of leggings simply have to be a staple of your wardrobe. However, when you have long legs and a tummy, most “normal” legging options are barely going to get over your calves. A 26 inch inseam? Aw, cute!

Luckily, tall plus size leggings have been embraced by a variety of brands, be they tall or plus. I have three personal favorites I’ve listed below in terms of what you want (overall value, super long legs, and extended sizes) but the other options listed here all come with excellent and helpful reviews. Only leggings with long inseams and plus sizes are included here, and this list is updated regularly!

  • Best value: Ewedoos high-waist yoga pants (Amazon)
  • Best for super long legs: Alloy tall high waist (Alloy)
  • Best for extended sizes (squat proof): Superhold Pocket Leggings (Superfit Hero)

I was banging the yoga mat for these in my round up of tall plus size yoga pants, and I’ll continue to do so in the context of leggings!

These are my go-to for any workout or when I’m just hanging around the house. The 3X fits down to my ankle and the high waist secures my tummy really well, essentially working as a compression device and keeping everything in place which for me, is a rarity. These are my personal choice for the best plus size tall leggings because of the low price tag that delivers a true fit and comfort.

alloy tall plus size black leggings

Keep it basic in black with these super tall plus size black leggings from Alloy. Awesome to see them offering what look to be the longest leggings around! Reviewers over 6 foot tall all compliment these on their true length through the ankle. The only disappointment is that they don’t go beyond a size 20, but if it fits, flaunt it!

Plus size girls, the search for leggings that keep everything in ends here. Superfit’s “superhold” leggings really live up to their name, with reviewers citing them as squat proof, soft, and breathable. I absolutely love the side pockets in these too!

The inseam isn’t super long but for perspective, these leggings do cover the ankles of their 5’8″ model (pictured above.) Women 5’10” or over will probably have to accept these won’t cover your ankles, but with sizes going all the way to 7X, these are pretty much the most size-inclusive leggings going right now.

I certainly wasn’t going to overlook Long Tall Sally, the British beauties, when it comes to tall activewear that’s available in plus sizes! LTS make clothes specifically for tall and very tall women, and they now ship worldwide. These leggings are loud and have a bit of “pop” to the design, if that’s your thing. They are one of my favorite brands going at the moment.

I don’t have an inseam length available from Fabletics’ product info but including these for the simple reason that tall plus women wear these well. I’m talking about the 5’9” model on their product page and I’m also talking about the Hunter McGrady, who rocks the Fabletics high-waists. She’s a true 6 feet, and these run to the top of her ankle, so they just have enough to cover her and do it well.

I’m not totally sure how long these run, but one thing we know about Yitty is that they’re going to get actual plus size women to model for them, and at 5’8” the leggings crop at just above the model’s ankles (when you select a size 1X or above you’ll see the plus model.) 

You could probably trust these to fit true to size up to 5’10” and wear them a little shorter if you’re up to 6 feet. If you’re any taller than that, I probably would stay away given their relative unknown.

These look amazing, and the reviews can attest to the quality and true-to-size fit of these leggings. The thing is, they offer a 30 inch inseam for their “tall” fit, and the “tall” sizes only go up to an XL. You can go with a 3XL but the inseam is a rather disappointing 27”. This is not one for me (too tall, too fat) but if you can wrangle into these, they’d look amazing on you 😉
