I really, really would like your help finding long tees or tanks for layering. I don't have too many clothes, but a lot of my tops are too short, even when I lose weight, I think I'll still need coverage.

 

Any suggestions?

I have the same issue and have found that Old Navy tank tops are longer than most shirts, they come in tons of colors, and they're very cheap.

I really like American Eagle tank tops. I am 6' tall and they fit me perfectly. They are on the more expensive side but the last a long time. I've had some of mine for years.

Another vote for Old Navy... if you go online they even have them in tall :)

Old Navy and get them tall!  I'm 5'2" but it always seems as though my shirts are never long enough in the torso, probably because I'm overweight...  I like Old Navy/Gap because you can order shirts "tall" I also like that the sleeves are a little longer on the  tall t-shirts.  It seems like short sleeve shirts are always really really short on the sleeves.  I have tons of tanks in multiple colors.

I like the sonoma (?) brand bra tanks from khols. They are about $8/each, lots of different colors and longer (Hits me at the hips or lower)...plus, they have spandex so when I pull it down to nurse it doesn't get all stretch out and misshapen! That's a requirement for me ;)

I forgot about motherhood maternity -- their spaghetti strap bra tanks are great, even when not pregnant:).  They have spandex too.

I love old navy tanks too. I also have Hanes tanks from the mens department. They come in a five pack for some really low price and work great as undershirts. I almost always wear a tank top under my shirts for layering.

Mossimo tanks at Target are really long and run around $8. I wear one pretty much every day.
