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."
I’m 18 yrs. old and I’m 6’2”. My whole life I’ve dealt with the stares and comments, stressed about being taller than boys, and cried over too many outfits that no longer fit. Today I still struggle with accepting my height, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve found that not all of the attention my height brings is negative. Thanks to my height boys do notice me (the tall ones are out there ladies!), people listen to me when I walk into a room, and Mac Miller did blow me a kiss because he could see me out of everyone in the crowd:) Being tall is a beautiful thing and life is too short to wish we’re something we’re not. I’ve found it helpful to write quotes on my mirror or even make an “inspiration board” to remind myself to love who I am, height and all! Much love to all my tall ladies out there!
My dad is almost 6’2 my mum is 5’11 and a half. I’m a scootch over 6’ about 6’.025”? Idk I don’t fit the measure at my doctor’s office. Anyways, have her watch invader zim. They look down on shortness and the tallest are the leaders. hehe but really just be proud of how tall you are its the next step in evolution, we wouldn’t look so good hunched over all the time would we?
I use to hate wearing heels but even in flats people would say “OMG youre so tall”… So might as well give them something “taller” to talk about hehe #TallGirlsInHeelsAreSexy!!!
I am 6’ tall, and so is my husband (I’m 28, btw). I was made fun of my whole life and unfortunately was really insecure about my height. I still am. I never wear heels, and the comments bother me. My parents are both on the tall side but I’m taller than my mom, and although they tried to grow confidence in me, I never felt it. I am posting here because my daughter is a little over a year, but she’s already off the charts and following in my footsteps. Do you girls who love your height have any tips for how to help my beautiful baby girl grow up to be a confident tall woman? Thank you!
I just have to say I really hate it when people who are like 5’7 are complaining about being tall and stuff.. I’m just standing there like ‘Well.. I’m 6’4, just shut the fuck up and be happy you’re not as tall as I am!’ It’s just frustrating when people don’t know how difficult it is to be this tall and always have to hear ‘wow, you’re tall’ and sometimes even be mistaken for a boy from behind.
My seam ripper died after removing the hems on 6 pairs of dress pants.
I dont know why but i really want a tall boyfriend!! i just love really tall guys and maybe it is because i want to have very tall kids when i grow up idk but i love them and i really want a guy that is 6’6 to 6’11, and since the other girl said that her teammate has a bf that is the height that i love, it makes me more happy that i could have one, one day. i have never had a bf and i am 18yrs old. i love being tall and i hope that i grow a little more but if i dont then i will still love my beautiful height<3
the WORST part about being tall is when all of my friends say ‘i wish i was your height’ and then another time they’re like ‘thank god im not too tall’…. its so annoyingg… and have you ever noticed that the tallest girls always have the shortest friends…. i’ve been 5’8” since 5th grade and its so hard…. thank you for this tumblr… it makes me feel less alone…. <3
