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."
This blog makes me so happy:’) I’m 15 and at 6”1 , its never been easy and yes i have suffered bullying because of it but now its made me such a stronger person. I’ve learnt to embrace it, you can’t change it, so you might as well love it. Thank you for this blog and to the tall community
I came across you blog one sleepless night and I had me dying with laughter at 2am.
A lot of these “problems” I’m able to relate to. I’ve always been the tallest: in the family, at school, at work. I’m 5’11 and wear it confidently. Don’t be a afraid to stand tall! I’m very inspired by what you’ve done hear. Please keep it up!
Everyone should check out the website Chromatic Gallerie! They offer up to size 12, have 2” heels & a variety of colors! Then shoes have great arch support & insoles. They are super comfy!!
I have been tall for as long as I can remember (too tall for the monkey bars in pre school even!) but for all of my 16 years in life, I haven’t felt insecure because of my height. I’ve been insecure about being heavier than my best friends (who are between 5ft and 5’6) but I’ve never really worried about being tall because that is what sets me apart from the rest. I love walking into a room and being the tallest one there, having strangers come up to me to admire my height is nothing but flattering for me to hear.
I wore 3 and 1/2 to 4 inch heals to prom, making me around 6’7, and I absolutely loved it. I wear heals as often as possible because I love the way I look and feel when I am wearing them. (And sometimes the perfect dress can’t be paired with mediocre flats! hahaha!)
Of course I have also had the tall comments and nick names but I just play along, I am able to laugh at myself and not think much of it. There are so many things for all of you gorgeous and tall girls to be focusing on besides being taller than most people around you.
And as for the boyfriend situation, you must learn to love yourself before you try to love another.
So, I guess what I’m trying to say is, there is no point in dwelling on something that cannot be changed, so start working on something that can be changed: your confidence. Once you forget about insecurities, you’ll be in a happier place. xx
So, I thought you should all hear me whine about how much I hate pajama pants. Say I want to get a nice fitting pair of womens pajama pants, chances are they are going to be too short. Even if they aren’t that short, there is a 99% chance of them shrinking in the wash. So here I am, grinding my teeth that I can’t wear cute pajama pants like other girls, and INSTEAD have to go into the men’s section.
My pajama drawer consists of family guy, spongebob, and superhero pj’s, size large (because god forbid a size small in men’s fits me either), oversized, ugly, men’s pajama pants. WITH THE STUPID PEE HOLE INCLUDED.
Tall. Girl. Problem.
to the girl who wrote the post “Too tall for a girl ,Too short for a guy” I think it is completely unfair to say that you are too tall. I’m currently 5’10” and one of my best friends is 4’11” and I have multiple friends under 5’4” and I am not uncomfortable at all. I love being tall and wouldn’t trade it for anything. 5’7” is the perfect height because you’re still shorter than most guys, pants are never too short, and they make cute shoes in your size. Learn to love your body for what it is, not hate it for what it’s not.
I love this blog. I am right about 6’ 0” and I have only grown about 2 inches since 5th grade (true story). I understand where all of the girls are coming from when they speak of embarrassment because of their size.
My life changed when I accepted it and decided that if they wanted tall, I would give them tall! I began wearing heels as often as i could.
I recently purchased a gorgeous pair of 3 1/2 inch heels at the recommendation of my mother (who is 5’ 3”). I almost didn’t buy them, because I was too scared about wearing them in public. I then thought of all the people on here and it gave me the courage to say, “No! I’m gonna do me and everyone else can get over it! I will not be ashamed to strut my stuff.” I wore those bad boys two days in a row!
You are doing some great things on here! Keep it up!
