Tall is Beautiful.
I am 171 cm, and i wish i was even taller. Being tall can be very graceful and feminine. With my height i would not hesitate to add more with high heels. It may be awkward at first when you are taller than everyone else, but keep your head held high and you will grow into it. Embrace your height it is a sign of beauty.
I had a date to Junior prom. He was 5’5” and I was(am) 5’10”. He is a really good friend so we decided to go together. Hanging out we never cared of the height difference. Until you do the mandatory sand next to your date picture. We looked so funny together. My mom (who is 6’) got a telephone book for him to stand on. It was so funny! Wish I had a picture to...
This guy I was standing next to in the cafeteria told me that I was a very beautiful tall person…it was nice of him to mention my height as well…
Well at least your feet are pretty normal sized compared to how tall you are….Ummm, thanks???
I’ve always been the tallest girl in my class, and i used to hate it growing up. I just want to know out of all you tall girls out there.. who used to be jealous of the short kids in the class whose feet didn’t touch the ground? I used to put books on my seat so my feet would swing.. :p
Tall Girl Perks
Feeling like you can take care of yourself in any situation because you tower over most people. =D
When short people attempt to give you a hug and try to put their arms over your shoulders and you have to pull their hands off of you, give them a straight face and explain why that doesn’t work, and then put your arms over their shoulders instead.
celebratingmysoul asked: He got taller!!!! I'm so happy!!!!
Wow, but you're so tall, you should play...
You know what, I wanted to do something else with my life, but since you, a complete stranger, told me to play basketball…I think that’s what I’m gonna do. Where do people get off sometimes?
How I feel when tying to date...
I’m Elena. I’m a freshman in High School and i’m 5 11 3/4. I don’t think a day goes by without somebody mentioning something about my height. The usual ” Oh My God i feel so short next to you “. Even it bugs the livin daylights out of me i also get comments like “You need to model” or “You’re so pretty, i wish i was you”....
Tall Girls Movie
This is a film made by a 6’1” woman. It follows the journey of six girls and their way of dealing with their height. Just thought you all might find it interesting. :) http://tallgirls-thefilm.com/page/
Hi I’m a 20 yrs old and 6’2” girl and i work in customer service. You wouldn’t believe how ignorant people are towards tall females. My whole family is tall, and often I love it, but being asked 10 times a day how tall I am or if I”m standing on a box is annoying lol. This is a shout out to all you girls who can relate
I have three girls - all tall and thin. We found Delias.com when my oldest was in 8th grade. They have 37” length at an awesome price and even carry that in a 00!

sophistichaos asked: Is 5'6-5'7" really considered tall for a 17 year old?
ellenlilja asked: Tall is beauty! Remember that girls.
twisted-deranged asked: I'm 5"9 & 17 years old, i'm not the tallest person out there I know but i thought i'd say something to all those girls who find it hard to shop for shoes in their size. Be happy with your feet! I have UK size 6 (very small for my height) and am constantly wobbling about looking like a drunken fool. I know it's really difficult for you all to find shoes but at least...
indigokaleidoscopee asked: I need help! I'm trying to find a dress for my birthday! I'm 5'10 and 1/2 and it's such a struggle to find cute party dresses that even cover my butt up! Any suggestions on where to look?
kittypryyde asked: I'm 17 and 6'2. I play basketball and I'm planning on modeling soon but I feel like the two would just contradict each other
youknowthetallone asked: Finding this blog made my day! I am 18 and I am 6 foot and a half, I hit 6 foot when I was 16. Everything on here makes me laugh so much because it is so relate-able haha, love it :) xox
5.9 and proud.
It might be because I’m Dutch and tall people are quite common here, but still: the only girl I know that’s taller than I am is my sister. She’s 6. And yes the are the cheeky comments and the silly looks, but just be proud. Just like I am. Just wear the dresses that make your legs look fabulous, just reply with a smile about the temperature questions ‘up there’ and...
l-exorcist asked: "hey, can you reach that?" story of my life.
With long arms comes great responsibility
When you have you hands on your hips and you turn around and elbow some poor short person in face. Two words, small people ELBOW ROOM. Also when you step out of the shower and you hit your head on the shower rod.
iadorewatermelon asked: I'm 15 and i'm 5'11 D: i went out to a resturant last week in heels and a little boy of about 5 at the table next to me yelled out OMG LOOK A GIANT :(
Today I had an interview for an internship at my dream job and I wore heels for the first time since my high school graduation. At my graduation I wore one inch heels and hated it, today I wore three inch heels and absolutely loved it! I am finally happy in heels, thank you fellow tall girls!
To Be Tall and Proud, Or to Hunch Over...
I’m a 20-year-old junior, 5’9”-5’10” on a good day. to be honest, there are moments i love being tall and being able to help people reach things and playing basketball and walk fast when i’m late, but there’s some moments when i don’t like being tall, like when it comes to the comments. most of my friends are shorter than me, and between them and...
Day in my life.
Them: Oh, it must suck to be tall. Me: Actually no, it’s fabulous. *looks at her for a second longer* It must suck to be ugly.
I’m 19 and 5’11.5 and this past weekend i was a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding, i was told when the planning for it first started i would be wearing heels, so since all the other bridesmaids are under 5’5 i decided that the size of the heel i wore didn’t matter since i would still be much taller than them, so i wore almost 5 inch heels and loved it. I was not going to let...
I’m a 5;7 Man, and I love tall Women, but every time i meet one and get to know her, when I ask them on a date, they reject me and tell me it’s because I’m too short. This ends up very disappointing and frustrating to me. I mean, I may be short to them on the outside, but I assure you that inside myself, I stand very tall.
Gwendoline Christie, she is 6ft 3 and a successful...
snap-crackles-jensen-ackles asked: I'm 5'10". I love my height, as long as I don't have to meet people, haha. I feel average as long as I don't wear heels or stand next to my super short friends. All I ask for in life is a 7 feet man.
When your brother’s mens large sweaters aren’t long enough for you to wear with leggings.
Tall Girl Problem
Walking through a store hearing people gasp and say, “My God did you see how tall she was”
mystrade-and-johnlock-fangirl asked: The same with the frame/weight, but then with 6'1? Or maybe just tell us how you know? XD
emmad0llie asked: I've been on here before and I hate seeing all these tall gorgeous ladies talking about getting made fun of and they don't think guys like them and all I have to say is you're amazing and that's all that matters! I'm 6 foot 3 inches and I'm 18 and I just brush off the people that are jealous and move on to the people who actually appreciate me. Love you for who you...
roboticsheep asked: Okay so there's this guy at my school. He's 6'4", my favorite height in a guy. (*swoon*) Some mutual friends are working on getting him to ask me to homecoming. I could wear heels and still be shorter than him. (I'm 6'.) I'll keep you posted. Hahaha.
If you have an entire section for “petites,” who can always hem or have altered anything that doesn’t fit them, why don’t you ever have even a single rack for “talls,” who have to use it or lose it? You need to extend all your blouses by three inches, carry 36” and 37” inseams IN THE STORE, and make sure your “floor length” gowns are...
How to Answer "Why Are You Wearing Wedges?"
Get wedges from TOMS. They are super cute and for every pair of shoes you buy, TOMS donates one pair of shoes to a child in need! So when people ask why the heck you’re wearing wedges, point out that they’re TOMS wedges and you’re supporting a good cause. Yay!
Have you thought of making t-shirts for this tumblr? Long length, of course. :) They could be general ones for the tumblr, or specific and have some of the “problems” on it (my new fav: #231).
Not being the tallest girl in the club, but being the tallest person in the club.
I’m 16, 6’3, and 140lbs, and live in a country where the average female height is 5’2. And the average male height is 5’7. I was always the youngest in my grade, and also the tallest, and no guys would talk to the weird gawky girl in the corner but eventually I started embracing it, and as soon as you start to love how tall you are, the friends come with it. I love the...
When you raise your arms to dance around your room and you hit your hands on the fan.
When your yoga instructor comments on how small your mat is. Because only half your body fits.
Someone asked me once: “How is it to be that tall?” I (6’2) said: “Well you know there are advantages and disadvatages…” And my curious interlocutor replyed: ” Oh really? And what are the advantages?” ughh!!! ps: Just confirming The Tall Girl Problem #231
when you go up to ask your teacher a question you have to squat down so you dont flash anyone while bending over.
