Just would like to say to all tall girls to relish your height. I'm 16, 6'3, and still growing, and yeah, it sucks sometimes and people are stupid about it, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. Who cares, wear heels, do whatever you want. Be proud of your height!

I know it feels like you’re the tallest girl right now but the guys do get taller once you graduate. There’s a whole new world outside of highschool! :)

Guys grow slower than girls, so it takes a bit longer.

I remember when I was younger I used to cry about always being the tallest girl in the class... I realise now, thanks to people like you that being 5'9 or 6'2 is just as beautiful as being 4'11 or 5'3

Thank you! I’m so glad that you’re confident now about being tall. Ever height, no matter how tall or short, is beautiful. :)

I'm 5'9 too and I hate it so much I can't stand being tall I feel like a man and I feel disgusting all the time and my legs are longer than my body so I kind of look like a marshmallow with two straws under me and urgh I have an issue with wearing shoes that aren't completely flat with no soles at all so I'm not made any taller and urgh I just hate it :(

You do not look like a marshmallow with two straws! Having long legs is beautiful as fuck. Believe me, long legs are an asset and not just that but there’s so much more to you than how you look. You’re a person with feelings, thoughts and opinions. You have an awesome personality and an awesome height. :) You’re just as beautiful as a 5’4” girl and she’s just as beautiful as you!

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!
