This blog post is for all of the beautifully tall women out there. The average height of an American women is about 5 feet and 4 inches. In general, ladies slacks have an inseam of about 29 to 32 inches. If you didn’t know, finding adorable pants with longer inseams isn’t easy. To be honest with you, shopping for tall pants kinda sucks. (I am 5’9″ with a 34″ inseam BTW)
