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."
on the topic of tall girls (i’m 5’11/6ft) and concerts, i went to a mindless self indulgence gig a few weeks back and this sour-faced little turd of a girl kept on moaning she couldn’t see anything. her actual words; ‘why are you so fucking tall, please don’t let me be stuck behind you again.’ a total stranger said that. i wish i could say i stood even taller just to annoy her but i didn’t. totally ruined my night. i can’t help i’m tall just like she can’t help she’s short, i really wish people would realise that next time they have to comment on my height
I went to a Trey Songz concert last night and instead of being upset that I didn’t have a closer seat, I was relieved that I didn’t have to hear people behind me complain that they couldn’t see.
I am 5 foot 10. Have been since I was in junior high. Always towered over the boys in my grade and I still do. Now, a couple years later, the boys are still shorter. -.- lol. I, however, don’t mind. I am dating a boy older than me, so most would assume he’s taller, right? wrong! He’s 5 foot 7! That’s an age difference of 3 years and a height difference of 3 inches. But that doesn’t mean anything. What matters is that two people want to be together. Sometimes people will tell me “Wow, that must be so awkward…” But it’s totally not. We make each other happy and hardly notice the height difference. He loves my legs! Find someone who makes you happy and be confident in your height. Don’t let others define you. #TallGirlPower
Alloy.com, mostly for their “tall” jeans. They carry several brands with longer inseams. Some dressy pants, skirts and dresses & larger sizes shoes too.
This is a great site.
I am 63 years old and never knew another tall girl while growing up. Now when I go to the mall I always see tall ladies everywhere. I love being tall. Tall is beautiful and every one has always been envious of my height. I was lucky I suppose that no one made fun of me when I was young. I was asked to do some modeling when I was young and that was fun. (Just for a couple of local department stores) My husband was the same height as I was when we got married 38 years ago. Now that he has lost his hair and doesn’t stand up straight…I am the taller one. It is OK, I just don’t wear heels very often. I do will wear them for special occasions. Being tall is fun.
Anyway, embrace what GOD has given you. What is really important is what is on the inside.
Best Wishes for all of you.
happysmilewithsad-eyes asked: I like this guy and hes short yeah and im tall and im like tall what do i do to not make it awk
Don’t make a spectacle of it. It could make him feel insecure about it and it will give him the idea that you don’t like him. If he brings it up (“wow, you’re tall!), don’t assume that what he’s saying is necessarily negative.
Just be yourself, of course :)
I love my height, I really do. But this world wasn’t designed for tall people. Here’s an excerpt from my college essay:
˝Tall girls are usually associated with models and basketball players. While in one half of the world we are portrayed as goddess-like, statuesque portraits, we face degredation and discrimination in the other half. Tall girls are in rare form, and we are often left feeling like pariahs.”
Normal tall girls take so much crap everyday and we always have to deal with people telling us we’re not beautiful or less feminine. On the other hand we have people who think the only way we can put our height to good use is by modeling or playing basketball. I don’t know about you guys, but I want to be a professor.
And then we come to the nightmare that is finding clothes and shoes that fit. Or in some cases having to have clothes custom-made. It seems like the universe is hell-bent on making being tall a tragedy.
I have no idea what to make society’s standards of beauty anymore. We tell people they are too fat, too skinny, too short and too tall all the time. What is the perfect woman? What is the average woman? Whoever writes the book on perfection seems to be a little confused right now. I guess this is where the magic of photoshop comes in…
I know my height is beautiful.
I just hate living in an average-sized world.
dfghjhj asked: How about shoes? I have the worst time finding any heels because Y'KNOW, apparently we're not real women to society so they don't have to make sizes for us. We don't have big feet, they are proportionate for people of our heights. Have you ever seen a 5'10 women with size 6/7/8 feet? now THAT looks strange.
Try Payless (my personal fave), zappos.com and alonai.com
I was just having that conversation with someone who said that my feet didn’t look that big and I’m like duh, look at how tall I am.
You inspired me to make a post, actually :)
