My name is Gillian and I am the founder of Mummy Long Legz, a brand of tall maternity clothes sold exclusively through Tall Maternity Store. That’s me in the photo with my son Harrison. Harrison is there as he is the entire reason that Mummy Long Legz was created and he continues to be my ray of sunshine through the particularly frantic days!
In 2007 whilst expecting Harrison I suddenly encountered a problem. My bump was getting bigger, I was popping out of my clothes and I could literally find nothing to wear. Now I’m not particularly tall, I’m 5ft 9” which is pretty short compared to some of our customers. However I have a 36” inside leg. There was nothing available and after trawling the shops and internet I realised that my choices were limited to skirts, dresses or chilly ankles! It soon became clear that lots of ladies were in the same position and it seemed that retailers weren’t catering for pregnant ladies with height.
I decided that I would make it my mission to design a pair of tall maternity trousers that ticked all the boxes. They had to be comfortable, flattering, reasonably priced and most importantly long! I spent hours researching fabrics, sizing, manufacturing processes and spent my pregnant months obsessing over my mission! We found a great manufacturer in sunny Manchester and we were set to go. I built myself a basic website and we were in business.
The feedback was great and all of a sudden we were receiving emails thanking us and praising us on the fit. Now bearing in mind we had one style of trousers this was all very encouraging. Things have come on a long way since then but our core values have remained the same. We are still dedicated to designing comfortable flattering styles that are reasonably priced and look great on the taller frame. These days we work with a dedicated team of professionals who are as committed to our values as we are including pattern makers, manufacturers, web designers, and photographers, all striving to perfect the Mummy Long Legz experience.
We are a family business and we never want to lose the personal touch. I oversee the entire design and manufacturing process, answer all emails personally and I’m the one packaging your order up in pretty tissue!
Our customers are our friends, we appreciate every order and sincerely thank you all for helping us to get where we are today.
We hope you love the collection and if you have any ideas for future additions to the range please get in touch. We love hearing from mum to be’s so whatever your question or even if you just fancy a chat drop us a line.
Thank you for visiting our site!
