Tall Girls Thread Anonymous 3090

For sharing tips and tricks on how to make the best out of your height!

How did you come to terms with being tall? (how to be more confident and comfortable)
Clothes that suit you the best?
Maybe other specific hair or beauty routines and styles?
Diet and excercise? (since there are differences depending on height/build)

Anonymous 3092

OP here, i forget to add something:
Do you have any tall icons you look up to? Somebody's style you follow?
Please share!

Not a tall girl but I feel like only tall girls can pull off maxi dresses.

>How did you come to terms with being tall?

I haven't yet lol Doesn't help that everyone likes to comment on my height first thing when they meet me, and usually I am the taller girl in the room. Makes me feel manly as fuck, especially since I have PCOS.
Maybe if I was thinner, I could trick my brain into thinking I have a model body. But alas.

>Diet and excercise

I usually jump rope. I shouldn't eat as many carbs as I currently do, though. Maybe I am not the best to comment on this due to my slow metabolism lmao

I try to look up to idols around my height to feel better, but it doesn't help as much as I wish.

This thread was made specifically for tall girls, so that we can enjoy discussing things without fights between short and tall girls breaking out again.

So what made you think writing that short girls can also look great in maxi dresses contributes in any way to this topic?
You just had to put that in there…

Sorry femnon, I wasn't trying to start a fight (I wasn't part of the tall/short infighting). This site is just reallyyy slow, so figured since anon is also not tall, it was OK to let her know that there are maxi dresses that fit all heights. :)

I'm 6'.

I find I look best in shorter dresses that show off my legs. I'm pretty flat though, so I try and use what assets I have. I especially like styles with poofy skirts and waist ties.

I have straight bangs and medium hair, I'd like it to be longer but it stubbornly refuses. Diet wise I eat pretty well, lots of veggies. Due to my size though I get away with mostly anything and stay slim. I don't exercise much since I have a shit heart.

I fluctuate between liking my height and hating it. I hate how annoying it makes clothes shopping, and I hate how it makes me stand out. Sometimes though, I look at myself in a nice dress and like my shape. If I had the choice I'd like to be shorter, but I guess I can live with it.

I find tall girls attractive, especially when they wear heals! The confidence oozes out in the way they walk and it's just so sexy.

I am 5'8" and a lot of guys I've dated claim that they're the same height, but end up being shorter than me. lol So I guess I am closer to 5'9" now unless they're lying about their height.

I like being tall because if I start putting on some weight in the inevitable future, maybe I'll carry it better than if I was short. But I really wish I was a petite, short girl because I hate bringing attention to myself and looking like a lanky skeleton.

Some girl asked me how tall I was and told me "wow I'm glad I'm not as tall as you and I have an average (read: "normal") height, I'd hate being stared at." I'm not even that tall bitch

Same, if men don't like tall girls then I will love all the tall girls

Anonymous 3118

I am 5'9 and sometimes it sucks how big I am naturally next to men. I am 140lbs and I am very busty, so it is not like I am a planet.

It sucks that I am not confident in any man picking me up. On other Hand I love how long my legs are and the aesthetics of tall women.

Being tall is sometimes great, sometimes shit.

i wish i were tall for this reason. plus, i'd like to be taller than my future girlfriend by a lot…

Lmao yes, I love being able to look men straight into their eyes.

I may be wrong, but from my own personal experience, being tall helps to immediately be taken seriously.

Teach me how to be you anon. I guess I could deal with being on the taller side, like 168cm, but I hate being 174cm.

I hurt when I heard a then friend of mine saying "I wish I was taller. But yeah, not as tall as you."

I knew/know girls who where taller than me, but it's pretty rare here where I leave. It was a total of 3 chicks. An one with only 1cm more than I.

>>How did you come to terms with being tall? (how to be more confident and comfortable)

By wearing heels/platforms. Often. I’ve always liked being tall, I think the only thing that bugs me is weighing more than the average female. The least I’ve EVER weighed post puberty was 160lbs and that was starving myself. I’m 5’10” and hourglass shaped, it took a long time to accept that I’ll never weigh 90lbs, kek.


>>Clothes that suit you the best?


All my height is in my fucking torso. I’m really grateful that leggings have become so popular so that longer tops are “in” and easy to find. I tend to wear dresses if it’s not leggings + long top. I always buy my t-shirts 2-3 sizes too big or they come up short and look silly


>>Maybe other specific hair or beauty routines and styles?


I always have bangs but idk other than that? I probably still would even if I was short


>>Diet and excercise? (since there are differences depending on height/build)


I’m really into weight lifting.

>How did you come to terms with being tall (how to be more confident and comfortable)
I used to be very shy about my height, being taller than all the boys and schoolteachers, so i constantly slouched to be 5'7 (i'm boney and weak so its hard to support my weight for longer than 5 mins) but I realized I think its really funny how smaller men become uneasy when I stand fully straight at 5'11", and girls like it. I don't mind standing out so much when girls call me a pretty model in public.

>Clothes that suit you the best?

shopping is a pain. petites are too short, regular/plus is too big. I have ONE pair of expensive skinny jeans in "long", and wear a variety of thigh socks (this is trial and error as 90% of "thigh highs" are just over knee for me) with shorts or A line skirts/dresses to make my hips bigger. any rare time I find something in xxs/000/00 with a "long" tag i get it. sweaters typically are free size with longer arms so I have a nice collection. I pair leggings with mid-calf socks to cover the exposed 5+ inches. I'm clumsy so I wear flat shoes.

>Maybe other specific hair or beauty routines and styles?

I usually wear a typical lesbo pixie-bob as it fits my bone structure, but I like waist length extensions in the winter/late fall as they help with the cold.

>Diet and exercise? (since there are differences depending on height/build)

I'm vegan by a weird coincidence but nothing so healthy or specific. I mostly eat frozen waffles and oat packets for breakfast, pasta or pizza with fries for lunch, candy, ice cream, chips, cafeteria food, etc for snacks and whatevers the cheapest delivery for dinner. in LA pretty much everywhere has good vegan options. for exercise 3 days a week before college I walk around the open mall but most of the time I'm sedentary honestly.

Am 177 cm. Struggled with close all through my teens, but now I am a boring fuck so I regularly wear just jeans + nice top.

One thing I wish I knew before was the those jean leggings are better than actual jeans. They tend to be longer, so you can pull them up without risking a) showing ankle and making you look stupid af or b) leaving you with a saggy ass because you don't want to look like you're wearing ill-fitting clothes. Can't believe it took me 18 years to buy my first pair of jeggings

Tall women are amazing. I love legs, so tall girl = more leg! I want an amazonian gf mmmm

Anonymous 3859

Im around 5'9 and right now I like that I'm tall, and maybe even would enjoy being an inch or 2 taller
>How did you come to terms with being tall?
I fucking hated being taller than everyone especially all the boys growing up, it made me very self conscious and honestly affected my social skills. That puberty period really hit me hard and I became insecure, which carried through my late teens to now. It's a good deal more in control though. That being said, all my friends ended up being tall people and I can relate to them much better, while short people tend to be a bit more standoffish towards me, so that kinda made me enjoy being part of like a "tall community" or something where I didnt feel weird and shameful.

>Clothes that suit you the best?

Everyone says long skirts suit me but I feel a bit obnoxious in them. I think high waisted shorts look good on me, and skater dresses. Tall girls that wear heels are so gorgeous, i wish they would do it more often!!!

>Maybe other specific hair or beauty routines and styles?

idk, my hair is a few inches shorter than OP pic.

>Diet and excercise?

I eat lots of home cooked meals, pretty healthy for an american lol. Wrt exercise, I'm just trying to do glute exercises right now because my butt is not anything special haha. I had this issue with building my calf muscles , they grow so fast and make me look proportionally short so I have to prioritize glutes only now.

>>3208
This poster is probably gone but does anyone know where to find proper length thigh highs?

I'm about five ten, for reference.

I've always quite liked being tall because my nature made me slightly scared of everyone who was teller than me growing up. I was never tormented by the 'less feminine' idea because I knew that if I want to exude feminine vibes, I want them to be /gfd/ vibes. My only gripe is that the world is made for short people and my tallness is in my torso so I'm inclined to slouch.
Again, since my height is in my torso, things that travel all the way down to my waist are paramount. I like wearing blazers and other things that compliment long limbs. The era of crop tops is my bane because I already struggled with finding shirts that are long enough- Dynamite has betrayed me completely in this respect, they used to be so good for tall people.

Pic related hair length but a bit more fluffy. I work for the hair, the hair does not work for me, I don't 'care' for it as much as desperately try to tame it.

I'm 5'9 and I love it. I usually wear 2-3 inch heeled shoes b/c I wish I was taller. It's great being tall and thin with long legs. I also hear that men are intimidated by tall women, but that's just a plus if it's true.

Tall men love tall women so all tall girls should just move to the Netherlands
