Tall Girl Problems

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."

mianngb330 asked: Is 5.7 tall for like ages 12-14? People are always like JEEZ what are you like 16.

Yeah, that’s pretty tall. I was 5’7 when I was about 12.

To the tall girl asking about flared long yoga pants

Target is my go to! Champion has them in short, regular and long lengths. I would say the long inseam is about about 35-36” because they are a little to long for me and my inseam is about 34.5”.  They are pretty tough too - I’ve had a couple of pairs for over 2 years and they don’t look worn out. The other thing that is nice is that they carry larger sizes for the *ahem* “curvier” tall girls like me.  Apparently girls with big booties aren’t allowed to have long legs too. I have the wickedest time finding things to fit.

Tall girl problem:

Not being able to finish a bottle of water while sitting in a car.

Thanks! I hope you use it =).


You guys are a blessing!! Your blog is awesome!

Hi! I am female, 14 years old, 6ft and taller than everybody I know except for my two older brothers and my dad and including EVERYONE ELSE. It sucks sometimes, but it’s fun to be known as the tallest of them all! What sucks is that I enjoy having short hair so wherever I go it’s all “Hello sir” and “Can I help you son?” so that’s not so good but I have got used to it :P This blog is awesome because all of it is true and I can relate to every last bit! Keep up the good work! 

mapetitevieetjetaime asked: I love reading the blog. I'm 19 and 5'9" so I'm really not THAT tall. I grew a total of 11 inches between the end of 5th grade and the end of 8th grade. I wish I has this blog when I was growing up because it's such a confidence boost :) keep being tall and beautiful y'all!!

Thanks for the love boo :*

eudamus asked: Does anyone know where to buy long flared yoga pants? All of them I find are too short

Try JC Penney. Not sure if they have flare yoga pants but I like their activewear.

layingonthefloor asked: Hi! I'm 5'9 and I have a question. Well two. One how do you all sit in a car? Where can we put our legs?! Am I the only one with this problem? Second question : group photos?!? Thanks and you are an awesome blog!!

1. I always sit in the front lol gotta call shotgun

2. I stand in the back or sit on the floor in the front. I just have to be seen!

And thanks!

I’ve bought the Old Navy long jeans before and they actually aren’t flattering (look a bit like mom jeans). I buy mine from Wet Seal online, jeans ship for free, and they’re actually longer and fit better than Old Navy’s.

I swear you’ve grown since I last saw you.

I’m a junior in college, 6’2”, and married so I don’t really go back to my hometown that often. When I do, however everyone I see says the same thing “I think you’ve grown since I saw you last.” Okay people if that was the case them I would be like 8’ tall because you say that everytime! No I haven’t grown you just aren’t used to my frigging tallness! Lol drives me crazy!

(If anyone is wondering my husband is only 5’11” ;) so you don’t have to find someone taller than you!)

brunomarsismygorilla asked: I just wanted to say that ur blog is amaz and i love it so much! <3 Well, I'm 5,9 and all the short girls stoled all the tall boys, and the short boys said that it's strange to be with someone taller and i also think that'skinda true :( do you think that's true? And i also wanna know if tall girls with high heels? Is that ok or... :$ love u <3

Yea, I noticed that. But I also noticed a lot of short guys like tall girls.

And yea! Plenty of tall girls wear heels. I wore some the other day! I know people 6’ and over who wear them, so do what makes YOU feel comfortable.
