Base layers for tall girls
- Posted: 2nd Dec 2012, 21:02Report
Hi there, I hope someone can help me! I'm 6 ft tall and struggle to find base layers that don't ride up. Anyone know any brands that have a decent body and sleeve length? Thanks :)

I'm 5 10 myself and have found the Nike wool dri-fit long sleeve half zip top to be the best. Because it's slightly woolly as well it doesn't slide up as you move...plus it has thumb holes in the sleeves, which I love, as the sleeves actually fit perfectly on my arms. The one bad thing about this top though is they're quite expensive. Cheapest I've found is 20 quid on ebay, although usually they're about 40 quid. Hope this helps :)

I'll second that - I love the Nike Element half zip top and looking to get another as it's a great fit even on my gangly long arms ;-) (i'm 5ft 11). I got it at a Nike outlet for £20 so looking for another bargain one!

I'm 5'9 so not as tall as you but my arms are long so have had problems with getting kits that fits. I've got a couple of Under Armour tops which have very long sleeves and are long in the body too. I got one in TK Maxx - worth looking if you have a branch near you.
