I need a 32" inseam just to wear flats - why don't you have anything a tall big girl can wear?

Also would like to see more classic designs. Fads are OK but on me they tend to emphasize just how big I am. Who wants that?

I am 5'9" and need a long-torso one piece skirted swimsuit in size 34.

How about having order status and tracking info online? That would be really helpful.

A better designed website would be a good start. The comments about tall and more classic designs should be noted. Tapered and ankle length pants do nothing for a large woman. There should be something beween that and palazzo.

Love the clothes! I received a postcard for $10 off and was looking forward to using it with email offer of $4 shipping. But when I went to check out, using the $10 offer negated the $4 shipping. I really don't think that's so fair! Why can't I get to save a little more? Deb

Whatever happened to classic clothes without all the glitzy spangles?
You used to carry all-cotton sleeveless dress and short-sleeved jacket ensembles. They were loose fitting, modest and not made with little straps that don't cover plus-sized bra straps.

I am upset about the way you have changed your shipping method to Canada. It is now too expensive for me to buy from you, with customs, taxes and shipping charges.

I couldn't agree more with the comment about account and order history. I am trying to remember if I ordered something before or not and I guess I will have to wait till I get home to find out.

I have to agree on the classic designs. Some designs are a bit over the top in the artsy-fartsy department.

The ultra casual clothes need to be much lower priced than the career wear your competitors are offering. Cotton yoga pants and a t-shirt should never cost nearly $100US.

I'd expect a much higher quality for the higher price for these types of items, too. Cotton spandex tops I've purchased from you are easily marked and stained. That's so disappointing to me. If I'm paying that much more for simple clothes, I expect them to have greater durability and ease of cleaning, etc.

I shop at ulla's for 4 years now and I have a big regret: you don't do as many summer dresses in a cotton teeshirt fabric as you used to!that's why I keep my old ones as they were treasures!!

Yes order status update online is a must. I thought that was a given with online shopping. Every other store I shop with online has it. I also agree with pricing. Although the fit is good the quality is not worth the price. Your underwear is terribly overpriced. When looking at a pair of underpants I was looking for them to be made with gold in them they are so high priced. Thanks for letting us share our comments.

I love Ulla Popken and shop regularly for the basics. Skirts, dresses, for work...skirts, dresses for casual.

I recently ordered by mistake a pair of stretch poplin pants (the black with the people / Paris print)...I had wanted the shirt instead...but to my surprise, those pants were the most confortable, well fitting, pair I have tried on in years. I am keeping them and I have ordered the blouse, too. Well done. (I also have a cotton skirt and jacket from last year that was made with little stretch-ability. The look is also reasonably classic.)

But some of the comments here are very valid. I'd rather buy my Tee shirts from Junonia...the fabric is of a higher quality--thicker, not clinging. Same with cotton knit dresses. Flimsy cotton fabric on a large woman...well, as we say in the US South, "that just ain't right".

And some of the styles are a little "out there" but if they sell for you and the younger large women like them...great! Just don't forget about those of us who are closer to menopause than to our high school proms.

Lastly, I honestly don't mind paying more if the quality is high and the style doesn't outdate within a season or two. In the past I have been able to get this from Ulla...but as the years progress, it becomes more difficult.
