This is a blog for tall girls 5'8" and up. I'm 5'9" and have been called Amazon, lanky, and all the names you could throw at a tall girl. This blog is intended to point out the positives of being tall, how to be more self confident and make yourself a better person. If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me a message. :)

If you want to be skinny, that’s fine. If you want to be curvy that’s fine. If you want to be tall, that’s fine. If you want to be short, that’s fine. But don’t start insulting different body shapes and sizes just because it isn’t want you would want for yourself.

Modeling is a profession first established in 1853. So a pretty long time ago. Models are known for walking down a runway, selling overpriced bras and underwear and being tall and slender. “Why are models so tall?” Is something that people often ask. 

To be a model, you have to be at least 5’7”. To walk the runway, you have to be at least 5’9”. Being 5’7” in the modeling industry, take Cara Delevinge or Barbara Palvin, is considered short. Any female above 6’0”, like Karlie Kloss, is considered tall. Anything in between would be average.

So why is it like this? Why are models supposed to be tall? Well, here’s why:

A models job is to sell products. That’s really all it is. When you’re a model, you’re not considered a human being. You are treated and considered a product. What type of human being is going to draw attention to products? Something that you don’t often see. So a tall woman. Think about it. Most women aren’t tall, so if you see a tall woman in the ad then wow you may just notice the product. Advertisers and the fashion industry want you to see something you don’t often see. If most women were tall, models would be short. 

So considering this, how is having tall women as models a poor representation of women? The purpose of modeling is to sell products and it’s not supposed to be realistic. Nothing in the media, let alone the fashion industry, is realistic! Most advertisements only cater to caucasians and heterosexuals when the second largest religion in the world is Islam and by year 2030 there will be more African Americans then caucasians in America. And your biggest concern about the media is having a 5’10” woman modelling shoes in a commercial? You think that’s discrimination? No. It isn’t. I don’t know, maybe I’m reading too far into things. You can’t turn to the fashion industry and say “You can’t have tall women anymore for your models. Tall women are a minority.” That’s ridiculous. There’s so much more wrong with the media and this society. Trying to control everything in the media and perfect it is what’s truly unrealistic and no matter what you do it’ll turn out to be a poor representation of the world. I guess what I’m trying to say is: Choose your battles.

Is 5'3 tall?

I can’t tell if you’re being serious when you ask this or not. But no, 5’3” is actually considered short. Which is not a bad thing at all! :) Being short, just like being tall is awesome!

No problem. :) Glad you’re confident!

Most people with common sense know that anything along the lines of “___ girls vs ___ girls” is ridiculous. Except for this article I found. I got it off of this site called “Bellapetite” which is a website for short women. It’s much like “Simplytallgirls” or at least I thought until I found the article ” Petite girls vs Amazons.”

It starts off with this angry woman (at least she seems angry) bashing tall girls and going on about how incredibly attractive short women are. If you have to put down someone else, that’s a common indicator that you’re insecure. So if you’re a short woman, I would not advise reading this article. I’m not even going to put a link to it because it’s just so sad that people are actually spending their time putting other people down online. However, I will put a small paragraph of what they said:

What I’m saying Amazon ladies is this – although, yes, it’s true that“we” (petites) can wear the sexiest, highest of high-heels and lookdamn good doing so (without getting a nosebleed), that our “tall man” can throw us up against the wall or toss us around in bed, in a moment of passion (…umm, without breaking through the wall, or the bed for that matter), that as a petite women, we can climb up our manfrom bottom to top and allow him to enjoy every second of it (withouthim worrying he’s going to get crushed in the process), and thatduring such a “trip,” we petites get to know what it feels like making that “climb” (and that it is, eh-hem…well worth it!), you shouldn’tassume with petite women that just because we can do these things,we do them on purpose or to “steal” your tall men (although, I can see why you all get your panties in a bundle thinking about the fun, sexy things we get to do as petite women)”

Oh please, lady. Get over yourself! Who writes this bullshit? Men may prefer short girls sometimes, but they don’t like insecure women who feel the need to put others down. 

Then she says “After all, tiger prefer petite meat!” MEN GO FOR WHATEVER THEY WANT.

And to finish everything off, she concludes with “Men who like tall women have a fetish.” 

It’s people like this that really make me concerned for humanity…

If there are tall women out there who think that men are intimidated by your height, let me just say to you that that’s wrong. Only boys are intimidated, not men. In the adult world, no one gives a flying fuck if you’re 5’3” or 5’9”. So don’t sweat it. :)

Umm I was scrolling through your blog and in one of your posts it said that girls stop crowning two years after there first period. That's not right girls usually stop growing by the age of 19 no matter when their period started. No hate just help :)

Lol no I meant they usually stop growing in height two years after their period. That’s generally just “The average female” but when you take genetics and if your period has even regulated yet that will change things. I stopped growing in height at age 14 and I got my period at age 13. As for breast size, that solely depends on genetics (Just in case anyone was wondering).No need to worry about whether you’re hating or not, I’m not going to be offended if you correct me or something.

Your blog is amazing! I'm just about to turn 15 and I'm a little above 5'9. I'm growing (haha) to accept my height, but the fact that the majority of guys my age are shorter than me is driving me crazy. Will it always be this way?

Haha I liked that pun you put! To answer you’re question, no it will not always be this way. Guys generally grow in height much later than girls do. They’ll all get taller by the end of grade 11. Just watch! Once you get to University, you’ll see so many taller people.

I myself am not tall (barely 4'8") and I went through the tall girl tag out of curiosity and found your blog. I think all us girls should just unite and embrace our differences and not give a fuck about those who say otherwise :D

That is exactly the point of this blog! A lot of tall girl blogs slam short girls and vice versa. Which is why I made this. We can be confident without slamming other people. Actually, that’s not confidence if you’re putting others down! I agree with what you say, lets just all come together and embrace our differences!
