For all the beautiful tall girls and the problems we have to endure. Through all the teasing, feeling out of place & short hems, I'm finally coming to a point where I realized that there's nothing wrong with being a little different. People still try to tear me down about it but there will always be people doing that. These problems are mostly to make you laugh & go "OH MY GOD. THAT'S MY LIFE." But this is more than just a place to share each other's problems. It's a support group where we encourage girls to see the beauty within them (so play nice, ladies). Ask me anything & feel free to submit!
"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be and you're only as small as the world will make you seem."
Hang in there, tall girls! I’ve wanted to be a model all my life (artistic and travel reasons) and, every time, this is what I hear, ” [Compliment] but too short.” I’m 5’6”. As a dancer, I think elongation is exquisite. Tall dancers always look amazing. Some of you may be picked on (which I truly don’t understand) but I think it’s mostly because they’re jealous. Clothes looks so much better on you; again, elongation is beautiful; you’re a show stopper; and you make awesome friends as you can reach the clothes that some shops seem to find amusing to hang way up on the wall.. where the last of my size is… I kid but, truly, don’t let anyone get you down! You’re Amazons! You’ve got Nicole Kidman, Famke Janssen, Brooke Shields, Lauren Graham, Geena Davis, Lucy Lawless and more! :)
I am 70 years old, 5’10 and still get ignorant comments like “You’re so tall” or “How tall are you for heavens sake?”Amazing how the ignorant continue to make stupid comments to others I will often respond with “How tall are you?” They are always taken aback that anyone would ask them such a personal question. It does seem to shut them up, however. I have a wonderful husband and two great sons with lovely wives and grandchildren. There are many wonderful possibilities out there, so don’t get discouraged. Your height makes you a unique exquisite creature that will enjoy many opportunities not there for the short, just look at the data on successful people and check out their heights.
Short girls are always complaining about how long it takes to shave their legs and I’m just standing there like do you not see these freakishly long things attached to my feet?
Do any of you ladies do online dating? Have you ever met a guy in person who clearly lied about his height and then, upon realizing that you were actually as tall as you said you were, tried to pass it off as your fault? Cause that happened to me last week. Yaaayyyy.
I married a tall girl (I’m 5’9” she was 6’1”) and if she hadn’t been a psycho I would still be married to her! Also a tall girl took me to her prom, some of the most beautiful women I know are tall girls. Only thing I want to say is Looked through the photos and all I will say is wow, stand up straight and smile y’all are gorgeous!
The Kardashians, Reality TV trash who have no talent, right ? Well Khloe Kardashian is actually 5’10 and to be honest i really admire her. She is Bigger than her sisters Kim and Kourtney in both size and height but she still looks effortlessly flawless. Her other sisters are 5’1 and she has struggled with her height which is emphasized in both real life and tv. So lets all take the time to appreciate this woman who wears her 6 inch heels and towers over her petite sisters and is still the funnest realest kardashian. She doesn’t let it get her down and worry about what people say about her looks on national television,so why should we ?
I was stretching at track practice today and my coach comes up to me and says,
“How tall are you?”
“I’m 5 foot 10 and a half.”
“I was talking to the other coach and we think you’re at least 6 foot.”
I can’t even. This happens to me almost every day.
This blog is one of the best things ever. It makes me smile so much reading all of the comments from people because I have exactly the same problems as them and I don’t feel like the only one. I am 15 and 6ft and possibly still growing. I have a love/hate relationship with my height but this blog certainly helps the bad things seem better.
My most annoying tall girl problem that I hadn’t seen posted anywhere yet:
When you can’t cross your legs under the table at a restaurant or under a desk at school because your legs are taller than the table’s legs…
To “okay-maybe-not”, yes, 6’1 at 14 is tall, and a lot taller than a lot of people on here complaining about being tall, but it doesn’t mean their feelings about being tall are any less valid than yours.
I’m 6’2, so I know where you’re coming from, when you see people who are only just pushing 5’9/5’10 complaining, it still bugs me, but it’s not fair to devalue their feelings about it just because we are that much taller.
You’re basically telling them that they need to stop complaining because we have it worse. Their height could be a big issue to them and you’re telling them to shut up, it doesn’t help them in any way.
We should be supporting our fellow tall ladies, not trying to put them down because they don’t fit your perception of tall.
