Personal Shopper: Tall Drink of Water Goes For A Swim

Megan writes: "Hey ladies, you helped me out once before when I was on the hunt for cardigans for my husband, and I'm hoping you'll be able to help me out once again! I am seeing all sorts of cute, vintage style, Esther Williams-type swimsuits online-- but not a one for long torso'd ladies! I am cruising to the Bahamas (but not until the fall) and would LOVE to sport one of those adorable suits. Being 6'0" tall, however, requires me to stick with long torso sizes. Are there any to be had?"

Please tell me that you wear cardigans and court shoes on a daily basis? That would really round out this fantasy I have developed of your life. Once you look past the creepy of my previous statement, hopefully you will see the non-creepy bathing suit options I was able to find. Options One and Three appear to be your best bet. Order now, try them on, and send them back if they don't fit. You were smart and gave yourself some extra time for finding the perfect suit.

1. Spanx One-Piece Long And Lean Swimsuit ($188)
2. UjENA White Monroe Long Torso ($94)
3. Vintage Swimsuit 50's Style Pin Up Navy with White Polka Dot Bathing Suit ($75)
4. Miraclesuit Rialto One-Piece Swimsuit ($148) There's an actually long torso option for this suit.
5. Longer Torso Shirring Bandeau One-Piece Tropical Dots ($39)
6. J.Crew Tulle Underwire Tank ($125)

I prefer the hard core body modification scene but can also appreciate a ruffle or bow when I see one. Beauty and barrels of maternity/kid crap are my specialties. When you need help finding the right shade of eyeliner to match that new shade of "I haven't slept in days" tint your skin gets after a baby or four, call on me. Loudly.

I don't think the jcrew one is long torso. I have a freakishly long torso and often long torso swimsuits are still a little on the short side.
Jcrew does have 2 long torso swimsuits:

Yay helpers! Thanks for pitching in, ladies. I wasn't entirely sure where to look for super long torso swimwear (I'm 5'6'' which is nothing to write home about). We so appreciate when you gals help!

Hey! Thanks for answering my request, Magzilla, and thanks for your suggestions, ladies. I am usually pretty good at hunting down long torso items, but this particular vintage-style suit just wasn't appearing for me. I will have to check some of these out.
