It's Time for You to Love Being Tall ...

Alison

Some tall girls hate their height; if you're one of them it's time to start appreciating the advantages it gives you. Tall girls are beautiful; besides, you can't make yourself any shorter, so get used to your height and learn to love it. Here are some reasons to love being tall …

Striking

One of the reasons to love being tall is that it's so striking. If you're height-challenged (like me!), you don't stand out - in fact, you tend to get lost in the crowd! Tall girls are stunning; it's only a disadvantage if you feel awkward. So own those inches and learn to love your height. Other people will envy you your height, so see yourself as they do.

2

Practical

Being tall is also more practical. Admittedly, airline and theater seats can be cramped, but there are many situations where being taller gives you an advantage. You'll be easily able to reach for things on high shelves! Plus you'll have a great view in a crowd, unlike shorter people.

3

Legs

Long legs are stunning, so make the most of yours. You don't need to pass up on high heels; they can make your legs look even better. The stars of the Forties like Betty Grable knew how eye-catching a pair of long, toned legs were, so give yours a workout until they're toned. They'll look fabulous in everything.

4

Powerful

When you're shorter, people can patronise you and think that your lack of height means you're incapable of looking after yourself. That's never going to happen when you're taller. Height carries with it a sense of power, so taller people are taken more seriously. People won't be able to look down on you!

5

Sport

Have you ever seen a five-foot nothing basketball player? Height gives you an advantage in most sporting activities. So if you're into sports, use your height to help your sporting prowess. Hurdles, long jump, high jump and basketball are just some of the sports that being tall will help you with (you'll probably have to pass on gymnastics!).

6

Tall Men

Tall men will love you if they like a partner nearer their own height. But don't be put off shorter men. Some love an Amazon! Just because society says that the man should be taller doesn't mean that you can't date a guy shorter than you. The important thing is that you're compatible; it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

7

Clothes

Being tall also gives you an advantage when it comes to clothes. Most designer clothes are designed to show off the taller body, so if your tastes (and pocket) run to expensive ranges then you've got the necessary height. You can also wear pretty much any length of skirt from mini to maxi, and will look stunning in them.

It doesn't matter if you don't conform to the idea that women should be shorter than men. You get the height you're given and there's nothing you can do to change it, so learn to love your height, whether you're tall, tiny or somewhere in between. Never be ashamed or embarrassed by being tall, and don't try to slouch and pretend you're shorter. Be proud of your height! Do you wish you were taller or shorter?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I have always loved being tall and for your #1 reason too...it's striking. However I can never find pants to fit my long legs. That's okay though because I am obsessed with skirts and dresses ;-)

This article is ridiculous. I'm 6 feet and I buy pants at speacialty stores (which are harder to find than plus or petites stores) because nothing fits. I wear mens socks and gloves because they do t make womens gloves for my feet and hand lengths for women. Bus seats, plans, highschool desks woth chairs attached and conpact cars are all extra uncomforable for me and I get shorter people telling me how blessed I am. We have the heights we have, their are pros and cons to all of them but this article is ridiculous.

Shay,I agree with you. Im 5"4 and I call myself FunSized. I have a friend who is 5"8 and she can wear my clothes. I like the article though. But it does sound a bitch clinch.

I am 5'7 , I consider that pretty tall,but most maxi's usually run short so I barely have any of that,but I do play basketball,run cross country,and play softball so I guess my height does help

Love this article!!!! There should be more things like this in the world!!! I'm 5'9 and 1/2! Reading this m everyone's comments has made me love my height with or without heels!!! :D xxx

I'm 5'10" and the have jeans for taller women at The Gap...love them!

@Susan My husband is also 6'6" :) But I'm 5'10", so there isn't much of a difference. I've always been a bit self conscious of my height, but this article really puts it into perspective. Such a good article, thank you!

Im 5'9 & love it!

I'm 5'3 and I hate it so much. There is absolutely no advantage to being short while there are dozens of advantages to being tall. I'm super self conscious about my height and I hate it so much 😖

I am very tall and I love it, but I don't agree with the dress part. My size is S, but most of the dresses are too short on me, and I feel unconfortable a lot of time :(
