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."
flippy-feelings asked: I just bought a pair of wedge heels and I'm really nervous to wear them. I'm almost 16 and I'm 5'8" and I feel like I'm awkward and that people make jokes about me. How do I get over the worry of being too tall?
There is no such this as too tall! Too tall for who?
What matters is that you feel good about what you’re wearing. Confidence is key because people prey on insecurities. If you feel great, there’s nothing for people to make fun of you for.
amyscruton asked: Do you know any good places that arn't extremely overpriced to but skinny jeans? Or good jeans for tall legs? Thanks xx
Also Aeropostale and JC Penney (love love love their jeans)
artemismoon12 asked: I would just like to offer for the tall clothing discussion going on: Fairweather (for the Canadian tall girls on the blog) has new long skirts for spring, I'm 5' 10", high waisted, and I have to wear heels to keep the hem off the floor. Granted it's only a couple styles, but they're nice and comfy, and I'm quite pleased with the length.
This blog, you tall girls are what keeps me going sometimes, the smiles and giggles and the “Yes, I’m not the only one!!!” everytime I open the page. Keep strong :)
I hate when really tall girls complain about shorter ladies talking about their height. First of all: is there a law or something stating that if you’re under 6ft you are not considered tall? No. So YOU girls shut the fuck up. I’m 5’11 but I can’t stand this kind of thing. First of all, you don’t know what these girls go through and where they’re from. An asian girl, for example, is considered SUPER tall at 5’9. In MY country (Brazil), most part of the women are between 5’2 and 5’4. One of my best friends is 5’8 and people think she’s really tall as well. My cousin is 5’7 but when she wears 4 inches heels, everybody makes those kind of comments we’re all familiar with.
Yeah, you may be taller than all of us together, but this doesn’t mean these girls don’t have problems. Think about it: that teenage girl from Brazil who’s 6’9 would probably say you’re not that tall as well. She wouldn’t understand your complaints. At least you’re not almost 7ft, right?
Would you like that? I don’t think so.
nataliyalala asked: So I went to century 21 on sunday and I get these boots on a wedge and these 5 inch oscar de la renta platforms and I'm 5'9" so I put them on and there is no way anyone can say anything about me wearing them because my legs look so sexy (in a non conceited way) so this is just a a statement to all tall girls that honestly wear heels because your legs will look very sexy in them
Omg, I approve this message ;)
I see that there are so many of us tall girls out there. I’m 5’11 and 13. Why can’t there be a tall girl island though were I am not surrounded by munchkins:)
What if I exclaimed every time I saw someone under 5’6? lol <3
My name is Victoria and I am 20 years old. I currently stand at 6’3” and have been since freshmen year of high school. Oh and I love being tall.
This post is directed towards the Anon Mom that wanted advice. I think the best advice I could give you is to not let her height define her. I don’t know about everyone else on here but I actually rarely notice the height difference between me and other people anymore. Sure your daughter is going to notice the difference eventually when other people start noticing it but if it becomes and issue with her just talk to her about it. And if she is insecure about it at first let her know that it is okay for her to feel that way but don’t forget to show her all of the positive aspects of it.
She is going to be tall and that is fantastic because there are a lot of opportunities out there for those of us that stand out. But please please please what ever you do, don’t push her into doing something that she wouldn’t choose for herself. (I am not a basketball or volleyball kind of girl and I cannot tell you how many people have scoffed at me for choosing theatre instead. Oh well, it is my life not theirs.) but also don’t stop her from doing those things either if thats what she wants. Oh and on another bright note you have plenty of advanced notice on finding places that sell clothes and shoes for tall people if that becomes an issue.
But back to raising a confident little girl… you are her role model and you have to own your height as well. I am not saying that you have to wear heels all the time or even at all but you have to set the stage for her. And teach her how to let the comments roll off of her back or how to make a joke out of it. Because honestly the material is still the same and just as repetitive so you are lucky enough to know what is coming but don’t let that scare you. So basically focus on her growing as a person and lead by example and be there for her but don’t put too much emphasis on her being different let her choose to do that if she wants to.
And good luck! :)
I wish you all the best.
