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."
Having to buy Women’s clothing instead of Junior/Petite when you’re 13!
You’re breasts are proportioned exactly to your body type but they’re still 3 or 4 cup sizes larger than all of your friends.
Never being able to wear junior’s graphic t-shirts. Even XL barely covers your belly button.
Cute one piece swimsuits are OUT OF THE QUESTION.
Dont even bother looking at the clothing racks with cute shirts, just find the dresses section and match it with jeans.
“One Size Fits Most”…Yeah… I’m not most.
You’ve officially given up on trying to find a cute corset because NONE OF THEM WILL EVER FIT YOU.
Hating sharing the couch with people because all you want to do is stretch out.
Hanging off the edges of a california king mattress.
You’re mom compares you to an Ent from Lord of the Rings.
Having the hair stylist ask you you slouch down in the chair a little so she can reach.
YOU have to decorate the top of the christmas tree because no one else can reach that high.
Bringing your own water to school because you look ridiculous when you hunch over those tiny drink fountains.
Dancing at a club and trying not to look like a wacky inflatable arm flailing tube man.
Don’t want to go out and dance with the girls because they’re short and don’t provide enough cover for your to confidently get your freak on.
Having your friend complain that after you’ve been driving their car they cant reach the pedals because the seat’s too far back.
Some drunk guy at a party says “I want to CLIMB you.”
You go swimming with your friends and they start clinging to you for safety when the water is only 5ft deep.
You have to sit sideways in your desk because your knees wont fit comfortably underneath it.
Being afraid of heights.
People think your rude when you stretch out your legs across the couch but you dont care because you finally aren’t folded up like a lawn chair.
Having friends with 2-door cars and you have to sit in the back.
Not being able to sit on your boyfriend’s lap in pictures because it looks like your crushing him.
(I’m sure i have more but i figured these were the best. Thanks TGP, I’m proud to be a tall girl with a tall girl personality!)
Im 14 and just under 5’10. I went shoe shopping today and saw the cutest wedges. I loved them. I was about 6’3 in them and didn’t care..untill the girl who worked at the store was like “I dont think you need those. You are already too tall without them. Go for some flats” I was so pissed off i wanted to punch her right in the face…but I didn’t. I bought the shoes that I love! Honestly I think she was a little jealous. She was like 5’. I definetly learned a lesson today. Buy more heels and embrace being tall.
lifes-better-with-glitter asked: Why are boys short? Why??
So they have an excuse to stare at your boobs
Being called to help take down fixtures and lock the doors because people are to lazy to get a ladder!
At age 10, I was already 5’10”. Taller than everybody! Male teachers included.
I am now 17 and 6’2”. After many many years of hating my height and never being able to find jeans (thankfully ankle length is coming into style now…phew) I have finally learned to accept the person I have become. My height is not a flaw…. If anything, it is an advantage to those short Asian ladies looking for the black paint n the top shelf at Michael’s.
However. Every. Single. Day. At least one person will be walking next to me and out of the blue… “Did you know you’re really tall!”
Oh really?? Thank you for noticing that, I was having a hard time figuring that one out.
mykokorosehun asked: I'm 6 ft and I'm 63 kg... is this fat?
Not at all. You’re actually on the small side
So I’m 5’7-5’8 not quite sure of the two but dance is my serious passion but for a tall dancer its tough. For one, you always get shunted in the back, sometimes solely because of height. You work twice as hard to match the levels of the short girls so that way you don’t stick out. It gets frustrating always never being good enough just because you have longer legs than the general populous. In the end though, I have come to accept it and I know that I won’t let my body won’t get in the way of my passion.
The other day I was talking to a short friend when she suddenly changes the subject and says: “Wow, you are really tall next to me. Life is so unfair… But I like being short! I mean, I don’t have any troubles on finding a guy taller than me!”. Now, I was thinking about saying: Congratulations, nobody fucking cares, but as I am a nice friend (most part of the time) I said: “Well, I also don’t have any troubles on finding a guy taller than me because I don’t look at height. It’s personality that counts”.
I love my short friends but they can be a bunch of bitches sometimes, especially when they’re talking about my height. And I love being tall, but these kind of remarks still upset me at times. Oh, well…
5’10.5 (I still wish I could be a few inches taller though!) and proud!
People always assume that I don’t like wearing heels because I’m tall and I don’t want to be any taller. Helloooooo not all tall girls hate their height. I’m just the type of person who can’t walk and chew gum and I prefer to keep my uncoordinated butt on solid ground.
Anyway if I did hate wearing heels because I’m tall, it would partially be society’s fault.
