If you are over 5 ft 9 then you already know the struggle is real. Others may think tall girls have it made, but they just don’t get it. Sure, we can reach the top shelf and you don’t have to worry about someone’s head blocking your view at the movies, but the struggle goes much deeper than any of that.

Maxi Skirts

Maxi Skirts Ha! That’s a joke right? How many times have you gone to try on a maxi skirt with great hopes that it will truly be a maxi, only to have it come well above your ankles? Next!


Clothes in General

Clothes in General Jeans are too short. Even jeans made for tall girls can be too short. Dresses often look like shirts on tall girls. Long sleeves become three-quarter sleeves and most every shirt we wear requires a cami to keep our tummies covered. I am telling you the struggle is real!


Always Wearing Flats

Always Wearing Flats I mean, most of us feel we are tall enough already so we settle for flats most of the time. When we do get adventurous and put on a pair of heels we tower over everyone even more, including our 6 ft 2 boyfriends.


Taking Pictures

Taking Pictures Ugh! I can either stand up straight while everyone else in the picture comes to my shoulders or I can squat down awkwardly to look the same height as everyone else. Typically I go for the squat but there has to be a better option. Taller friends?



Hugs Oh man, this is definitely awkward! Many times when hugging other people, they end up lost in my cleavage. Their heads just seem to come to the right spot. When it’s a good friend or family member it makes for a good laugh, but what about a stranger? It’s a disaster! Side hugs are weird too. How are my pits smelling today, thanks?


Do You Play Basketball?

Do You Play Basketball? Just because I am tall doesn’t mean I play basketball. Before you ask, I don’t play volleyball either. Sorry if you think I’ve wasted all this height, it just wasn’t my thing.


Are You a Model?

Are You a Model? Now this question is a little easier to handle. In most cases, models are tall. It’s nice to know someone thinks you have model qualities. I’ll take that as a compliment.

Short girls, we know you struggle too. We all feel awkward from time to time. Ill fitted clothing, strange personal interactions and odd questions can make anyone feel the struggle, but know that you are still an awesome person. You just needed a little more height to pack in the awesomeness.

I'm almost 19 and I'm 5'9 and I'm still getting taller. Only upside is that I'm thinner than most people👍🏽

I'm not as tall but I'm considered taller than the average women, I'm 5'7 and taller than most of my friends, and I hate when people say I'm big or a giant

I'm 5'7 or 5'8....It's actually good and bad being tall.You can actually rock anything but people asking what size feet you are sucks I hate telling people I'm a 41/42 and I can't buy girl shoes and it's embarrassing to go to the men's section...

Funny but true! I'm 5'10 and I wear 4 inch heals and love it! I don't care about towering over everyone😊

I'm like 176 cm and 14 #stillgrowing 😒

I'm 5'6 and I do get annoyed wen people call me a giant or ask weird questions but cloth aren't a struggle for me anyways I love my body the way it is

Very true, except I'm struck wearing converse and vans, since I have narrow feet and ballet flats are too wide😕

I'm not very tall but I'm taller than my friends so I can relate to some of these things

My older brothers 16 and he's only 5'5... I'm 13 and I'm fricken 5'8😫😂
