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."
When your date puts his arm around you at the movies, and you have to slouch down a bit so now your back hurts the whole time!
I came across this blog while searching up “tall girl problems” on google and I just want to say love your height, cherish it!
Throughout my childhood people always noticed my height and they will always tell me I should either model or play basketball. I never took that into consideration until now.
I want to model and I’m 5’10 and growing. I never really felt insecure about my height, but I did get made fun of. Jokes like “giraffe” or having a long neck that can extend to outer space, lol. I love being this height and I even hope I grow up to be 6’0. Now, I’m very inexperienced with heels, but I’m willing to wear them for my upcoming career. Anyways girls, love your height. Don’t worry about the guys falling for the petite girls. They’re plenty of men right there that like us tall women :) Love yourself
Hi Kendra! I see where you are 17. Stay strong girl!! I am now 28 and 5’10” and I wouldn’t have it any other way!! It was strange in high school because I was (and still am after going to my 10 year reunion a few weeks ago) taller than the majority of men and women in my class. BUT, once I got to college, most guys do not care that I am tall, in fact, they love it!! I also wear heels almost ALL of the time, so I am usually at least 6’2”, depending on the height of the heel. Just embrace it and stand tall, there is nothing you can do about it anyway, so just enjoy it. I can gain 10 lbs and it doesn’t even show. :)
Now that I’m off my tall girl soap box, onto jeans and pants. New York and Company has nice dress pants and the talls are usually perfect. If I want extra length for heels, I just get a pair with a wide hem and let it out. Then they are perfect. I get a lot of my jeans from Victoria’s Secret. They have lengths ranging from 30-36, depending on the pants. Alloy.com has lots of jeans and pants in long lengths as well…I believe they go to 37”.
Hey! Not really a submit, not sure where else to put this. I wanted to say thanks so much for this blog, I am 5’10 and still growing and I used to hate it. I now feel incredibly confident in my height and am proudly wearing four inch heels to my school formal in a month and I love how tall I am.
I know many people will probably slap me in the face for this, but I’m 5’5 and I always feel soo tall….Is this classified as tall, short, or average?
Average. But welcome :)
Happy Mother’s Day to tall girls and their tall moms!! I’m the exact same height my mom was—5’8”. She was always proud to be tall, and so am I! :)
So I’m 17, 5’10’ my boyfriend is 17 5’7’-‘8’ & we have been dating for 5 months. We get people looking at us and laughing all the time. We love each other way too much to even care what people think. It’s taught me a lot about myself, I was worried we would have problems with certain things and dealing with the height but everything worked out great. In all honesty, I was scared to hold his hand in public because people said things, now I’m proud to hold his hand. I don’t care what the world says, we’re in love & yes I may be taller but if you truly love someone, does their height matter? Because in the end the worlds opinion shouldn’t affect your happiness!
I was so fuss & I just wanted to find a tall boyfriend, but he had me at hello.
He finds me beautiful in every way & would love me even if I was short. Who cares about height!
It doesn’t define the person within :)
boat-of-confusion asked: Wanting to wear REALLY high heels, but when you do, you feel like a tree.
I love trees lol
Wear those heels girl!
