>>68788>I'm 6'1" and I get a lot of stares from other women.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they were stares of jealousy, anon. I'm 5'3" and I've ALWAYS wanted to be your height, and I'm sure there's plenty of other girls who feel the way I do. Tall women are so beautiful and elegant. I know there must be challenges to being that tall, but please try not to let others make other people let you feel bad about yourself if they stare or are intimidated by you. Own your height because it's badass.
Plus you have a great excuse to look for a 6'5"+ man :')

5"3 (as well) here, I find tall women super attractive. I like being short because it's cute and suits my "kawaii uwu" aesthetic but i think tall women can be just as cute and super pretty!!
The stares are probably jealousy and that guy was insecure (or just not into tall girls,which can be understandable because to each their own preference, but don't think about it too much)
My ex gf was tall as fuck and I loved it and thought it was so hot. But I'm short and happy with it too. 5'2 here but most of it is legs and my figure is pretty nice with exercise. I used to hate being this short like anon here >>68812
but I love it now. I can wear heels without towering over people, I have a huge range of clothing options and my preferred clothing style looks great on my frame/height, and my partner (and every person I've liked earlier) absolutely loved how petite I look compared to them. I love the fact that I still get mistaken for an 18 year old despite being in my late 20s.

>>68812>Also if I gain or lose 1 or two kilos it becomes very noticeable
I've always been so confused by short people saying this or also "I gain weight so much quicker, if I was tall I could eat without gaining!"? Like, if you're tall your appetite increases accordingly. I used to be self conscious about eating more than my friends until I realized that I'm way taller so /of course/ I'm more hungry, a tall body burns more calories!
It's so weird how convinced short girls seem that if they were taller they would look slimmer.
>Tall women are so graceful and elegant to me
Only if they're underweight. Sure, short normal weight girls might not be elegant, but at least you're cute.
Tall normal weight girls? "Giants/Masculine/Big"
>>68840>your appetite increases but so does your overall calories needed
Which is why it's equally hard for short/regular/tall people to lose weight.
Like, for example:
Short person A: eats 1200 cals. Regular person B: 1300. Tall person C: 1400.
All these people are going to feel full the same length, and let's assume that those are the cals for them to maintain their weight.
Next: Weight loss
A: 1100 B: 1200 C: 1300 -> They will lose weight while all feeling equally hungry thus having it EQUALLY AS HARD to lose weight.
Sure A could go on to whine about "C can eat so much more while losing weight!! Not fair!!" But that's disregarding that it's much harder for a tall person to sustain 1100 cals than it is for a short person.
Obviously all this is overly simplified, but y'know, energy isn't magic.
I'm 5'10 and i absolutely hate it…
My whole life i've had disadvantages because of it; in kindergarten i was often scolded as the only person out of my group and than later on my teacher came up to me again and apologized, saying she always needs to remind herself that i'm not older than anybody else and therefore don't need to act more mature.
When i was 8 my grandma fell ill and whilst visiting my parents gave me some money to buy ice cream downstairs. On my way a woman stopped me and asked whether i'm a nurse; i had no idea how to react!
When i was 10 my dad walked with his arm around me and some dude yelled something like 'pretty couple' at us…
When i entered middle school on the first day everybody stared and whispered about me and some teacher asked me if i had to repeat class, because i obviously had to be older.
Even now as a young adult i still get some people laughing about how weirdly tall i am, rude man saying that they can't see standing 'behind a man'. Some children (and we all know that they are the most honest) ask whether i'm a boy or a girl.
Try finding a coat that doesn't end midway to your arms! Shortening trousers etc is always easier…
So in conclusion as a child everybody always had higher expectations, thinking that i'm older; if i did well in sports, i got "well it's obvious with your long legs", men always make fun of me and no, just because i'm tall it doesn't mean i'm immedeatly more confident.
All the tall girls in my class were the shy ones and the short girls were the cute anfmd popluar ones… I thought i'd stop, once i'm an adult but it doesn't and don't even get me on my dating options… Yes there might be men saying models are popluar and they are tall, but i'm no model! Most men are shorter than me and even if they are taller it doesn't mean that they don't prefer somebody normal sized.
I really don't get all these short girls wishing they were as tall as me, you don't know what you wish for. I get that being super short is also not ideal but being tall certainly isn't all rosy either, how can you say you want to be abnormaly tall if you've never experienced it? Just because i know that some dudes find short girls cute, i don't say thinks like oh i'd like to be 5 ft!
Being average simply is the best…
I forgot to add something that somebody else already posted before: being tall might be desirable, bur only and really only if you are very slim! Than you can fall in the modelish category, but otherwise even with only a little bit of extra weight you'll simply look gigantic.
Nothing makes you feel more girly, than being bigger in any aspect than a normal dude…
The Netherlands are the only country in this world there the average men is taller than 5ft10… so how can you say,'guys are usually taller'…?
Are you sure you're 5'10?
5'11" here. I don't really feel like I'm significantly taller than people even though I have 5'0 friends. Sure, I felt awkward about it in my childhood and teen years, but you get over it and embrace it. In fact, I think it's kind of funny/dumb that some presumably 18+ anons in this thread think they're 'manly' or freakish for being 5'8"-5'10", I don't even consider that really tall tbh (since you can still find loads of shoes in your sizes lol) but I'm also not actively keeping track of how tall I am compared to my peers. You can still have a feminine style and be tall, don't be so insecure, guys. As an "above average height" person I definitely never notice when people are shorter than me, so.
My boyfriend is the exact same height as me which is also cool.
I think my only issues with being tall are:
- Very limited shoe selection past size 11 (my feet seem to have recently grown so now I only fit in 12, aside from sandals). Most of the shoes I have ever wanted because they would have been affordable & frequently worn only go up to like, size 9 or 10
- Every store has a petites section, but no tall section (irl, not online)
- Literally only Levi's carries pants with the fucking length measurements on them for women. I have never seen any other women's brand do this in irl stores. All of my jeans have come from Levi's, Gap, or Banana Republic Tall sections for this reason
- All of the above is harder to find and more expensive than petite/average clothes
- Can't buy skirts, pants, dresses from stores like Forever 21 / H&M / fast fashion etc because they're comically too short
This is a thread created by a tall woman for tall women, since looking different then the norm>>68962
does come with many problems; now it's full of short or averege girls going 'oh i'd love to be 6ft, it would solve all my problems, i would immedaely be super confident!'>>69129>some people may glamorize with being a short female
and you are doing exactly the same with tall ones…>>68962
You're only 5ft5 which is perfectly normal all over the world, but it already triggers
you. Yet you go on and say that being with tall women makes you feel safe and comfy. Just imagine how a girl of taller height might feel in the same situation. Maybe tall women also sometimes would like to feel 'comfy and safe'…?
chill, you can say and respond to whoever you want. >and you are doing exactly the same with tall ones…
took that out of context.

Why is every tall girl thread filled with "oh, I'm only 5' and sooooo tiny, but I'd love to be tall, really, it's soooo hard to be petite and delicate and fragile uguu"
Like damn let the tall girls vent.
Nah scandinavia isn't this tall people paradise, the height of girls vary a lot here, from super short to extremely tall. Most girls are around 5'4-5'7 though. Guys here really care about being taller than their girlfriends, so most prefer short girls here.
If you want a country full of really tall dudes who thus won't care so much about height, you probably should go to the netherlands, not scandinavia.
I'm 5'8" and my height was always my first concern. I used to measure myself everyday and google "how to be shorter" for few days straight. I also got a lot of shit from the age of 7 to 12 because of my height, boys bullied me to the point headmaster had to stop them. I was physically hurt because of them many times. So I developed obsession with my height, I hated myself for that. The fact that every nice guy I knew was into very short girls didn't really help either.
I wouldn't mind dating shorter guys, I like shorter men maybe even more than taller men! But yeah, most guys are into petite, cute women.

I actually love being sort of tall - 174 cm (5 foot 8 i think) and I sort of wish I was even taller. But ughh I absolutely hate being shoe size 10.5.. It's so sad see all those pretty shoes and knowing that the store don't carry your size.

tfw 5'9 and size 8 shoe.
For once, I can be smug about having weird proportions. In reality, it means I have weird alien hands and feet. Slim limbs, wrist the same size as palm.

Same. I'm a giant in heels but not considered a tall girl really; just slightly above average height. My bf is only 5'9" too so sometimes I feel like I'm dating a manlet.
Congrats anons, you're normal!
Now quit whining on a thread for tall woman; if you would've taken the time to actually read the things some posters above you wrote, you woud realize that there are worse things than not feeling that comfortable in fucking high heels…
I'm 5'2" and I've always been super jealous of tall women. I hate being short, I don't get why anyone would want to be.
Taller women are just more elegant.
But western meals and snacks are geared towards taller people.
If you're a short woman, it's really hard to eat out without hitting like 70% of your daily calories in one meal. Not to mention as >>70368
said, it's very easy to overeat on empty calories as a short woman without realising you're doing so.
You have to be much more careful about budgeting your calories if you want to eat junk food.

5'9 with short af legs. it sucks, i look horrible and weird and fatter than i am.
i used to model and clients would complain about it lol. it's good for underwear/swimwear shoots but any fashion shots i was constantly told i have weird proportions
feels bad man
I'm short but also a long torso/very short legs girl. It sucks, but it really helped to figure out what was up and why my legs looked so stubby no matter how skinny my torso got.
Skirts and dresses that hit above the knee are key, probably why they're so popular in Japan and Korea - East Asians tend to have long torso proportions but I wish I could find a way to make skinny jeans look flattering.
Do you find that you "carry your weight better" than other girls your height? Like looking on MBG, most of the other girls my height/weight have some stomach pudge while I have none, and I'm wondering if it's because of my proportions.

I find rachel bilson is a good example of this body type.
I have like exactly her body (same height, same hips, same short legs) but with big breasts.
Sucks having such short legs, but at least I have a good hip/waist ratio.
She dresses pretty well, because you can't really tell outside of swimsuit pics, though it's not really my style>>70445
What part do you disagree with? Calorically dense (but nutritionally empty) food is much more easily available now, and much more a part of the average persons diet.
Portion sizes have gotten huge in the UK, and from what I know it's even worse in the US.
Well, the average person is much taller than a short woman (whereas a tall woman is pretty average height unless they're REALLY tall), is all I meant.
So the "average" portion is much too much, and it's hard to fit like a doughnut or cookie into your daily calorie budget because it's like 40% of what you should eat for the whole day.
I never mention calorie counts to other people unless they do first, because some people get weird about caring at all about calories, because counting calories = ED in their minds.
Also, I run regularly, which helps bring my TDEE up by like 300 per day, which is easier. But I like the running, the calorie burning is just an added bonus. Would recommend finding a physical activity you enjoy if you want to up your TDEE (+ a whole load of other benefits).
I'm 5'7" and I considered it for a while before realizing how painful it would be. I hate being tall but not model tall, just tall enough for it to stand out but not enough that it's a defining trait that could be considered charming.
Shit fucking sucks, I wish I was two inches taller or shorter
Yeah, I'm 5'1" and if I could change anything about my body, I'd want my legs to be 2-4" taller.>>70706
5'7" is literally the perfect height for women imo.
this makes me want to kms even though I'm only 5'9 in a country where it's not super uncommon.
Luckily losing weight makes it more bearable. Why can't I be cute and short?

I get the insecurity, I've been there myself, (175cm / 5'9 here). but does it really matter if most guys are shorter than you or your height? I personally don't want the average guy, or 'most guys'.
You can be cute and you can be sexy, it has nothing to do with height (look at models)! If any man makes you feel insecure about your height then you need to leave him for a better guy. And if any short woman talks shit and she is your friend, then you need to get a new friend.
this makes me so sad, I really hope that all you women who are insecure manage to deal with that and feel positive about yourself.
Saged for samefag and blogpost, but i had to add this: when i was just 10 yo i changed schools and this is the first thing my new teacher said to my mother: oh, she'll never get a boyfriend, she's way too tall!
Stuff like that really destroy all your confidence… and the worst thing is, i really never dated anyone.
When you are of average height, the vast majority of men is taller and therefore - in theory - dateable. If you are taller than the average men, your dating pool becomes already very small, and just because a guy is taller doesn't immediately mean he also likes tall girls; and on't get me started and well you could date shorter boys! I don't need a daily reminder of how tall i really am and i also don't need something to be made fun of additionally
>>70794>Let's make a thread for short women and than see how they like it when tall girls are non-stop posting how nice it must be to be short and small and feminine.
Just dropping in to say I (5'3) wouldn't give a shit and could totally see why some people would have the "grass is always greener on the other side" perspective. You sound very, very, very triggered
and perhaps you should take some time to calm down. Nobody is trying to make you feel bad on purpose, and even if they were, lolcow isn't your safe space anyway.
Yeah, exactly lol
I saw a girl on the subway once that was a bit taller than me (i am guessins around 177cm) and she was like mostly torso. Also, not all tall girls are models with perfect thigh gaps. anon be tripping

Slavlands, 180cm here + often wear 5cm heels
I used to be really insecure about my height in middle school, but now don't care about it anymore.
Happy because in the recent months I dropped from 71kg to 66.5kg and going down, so look more petite than before.
Guess it is because of the fact, that with time guys in class got taller, so I am not the tallest in the group.
I am also into girls so don't really care if I am taller than some guys.

I think some girls just get insecure about their height because it brings attention they don't have control over, like giant boobs.
There are girls and guys that think the girl has to be shorter than the guy, but there are some that think it's cute to have a taller g/f, because it makes them look like they are dating a model or something.

or it can go the other way
I've dated some manlets and our height difference was actually never mentioned, we didn't think twice of it so I guess I was always lucky.
My husband and I are the same height but he loves the rare occassion I wear heels because it makes me look like model standing next to him I guess? (just the height difference, not saying that I look like a beautiful model)
it's true though. when my tiny friend, who normally has a really nice figure, was pregnant, she looked like an Amerifat whale but she did lose the weight really really fast after the baby was out.
Also my bf and I eat almost twice as much as our much shorter friends but they're just full really fast and we're not.>>70368>>70415>waaaah waaahhh we have it so tough
I hate how there are so many short girls bragging about being a size S or XS, like bitch that doesn't make you thin, it's just natural for your height!
Even when i go shopping with my friends there have been instances there one of them held up a shirt in large and said ugh who can wear that?! I need to, if i don't want my ass to be showing…

Fuck this. I should just off myself.
I'm only 5'9", but I'm really slim and lanky so it looks like I'm taller. I hate being tall because pants are never long enough and skirts/dresses always show my ass. The cons of having long legs and a short torso.>>68846
Old post but yes!! I've had people ask my friends if I have an ED and need help. When I was in school, the lunch ladies would give me extra servings too because of it.
To all other thin tall girls, where do you guys buy your jeans? I've tried tall stores, but they're always too big at the waist
