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. :)

Oh gosh, nooooooo! I was that Jourdan Dunn anon. Tall girls can be feminine ;-; That's not what I meant :o I'm sorry, I struggle with words, I meant that I'm personally not that feminine when I go out with friends and that also contributes to me standing out. You can be whatever height and be feminine.

I’m sure you’re feminine and beautiful just the way you are. Don’t worry about it lol. :D

There’s some likable things about Meghan Trainor. She tells girls who are curvy to love themselves and made a really catchy song. But there’s a few things that I just wanted to say about the song and I’m going to tie in Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda with it. I understand these are total different songs and the messages are different but there’s something they have in common.

The term “Skinny bitches” Is this really okay? Is it necessary?

Trainor refers to skinny girls as “Skinny bitches” in her song. How come it’s okay to make fun of skinny girls but not curvy girls? Even though she says “I’m just playing.” It’s still wrong. No one would ever go “Hey fat bitch! Nah, I’m just playing.” All girls have insecurities. Whether you’re skinny, curvy, tall or short. I’m writing this post for the tall girls who are skinny and for any skinny girl in general. The only girl in Trainors video who was skinny and tall was made to look like an idiot and in serum wrap. Does no one understand the symbolism behind this? Pitting women against each other and contributing to the whole “skinny vs curvy” argument is never going to fix anything. It’s immature and we’ll go in circles trying to fix a problem that can actually be fixed with ease.

Minaj says in her lyrics “Fuck the skinny bitches.Fuck the skinny bitches in the club. I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club, fuck you if you skinny bitches.” Again, why is it so okay to insult other women? Little do some people realize, it that it creates an even bigger mess. The whole goal of making curvy women feel good is so that they can realize that they’re attractive too. This is true but this is really not the way to do it. 

A lot of curvy girls respond with things such as “Well, curvy girls have been made fun of for years so now it’s the Skinny girls turn so they can see how we feel.” No. If you really cared about body image issues, you wouldn’t say something so abhorrent and vile. So stop acting like you care about something that you really don’t share an opinion about. These people clearly don’t care about making all women feel good about their bodies. They only care about themselves and how they’ll be represented in the media. 

Another thing I’d like to add is both of these artists feel validated for their bodies solely for having mens approval. Just saying, you shouldn’t need a guys opinion of your body for you to feel confident. Love yourself without having anyone opinion, whether positive or not, influence your self confidence. Accept yourself without having a guy say “Damn you’re hot.”

I know that this whole “Skinny vs curvy” argument isn’t relevant to what this blog is about. But I have talked about body image issues before and I just felt that this could have been addressed too and a lot of tall girls are skinny.

Whether you’re tall, short, skinny, curvy, hourglass, banana etc. you can love yourself without insulting other people. True confidence is never mean or boastful.

Sometimes I get really nervous when I'm going to go meet up with my friends because I stick out. (Everyone here is short, pale,thin, and feminine and I'm the complete opposite) I'm really shy and I get nervous/anxious easily. But then I remember that Jourdan Dunn is 5'10 and she's bae and then I don't feel so bad.

I feel the same way sometimes o_o

Jourdan Dunn is so awesome! That’s a really good thing to think about when going out. Sticking out isn’t always a bad thing. :) I think Jourdan stands out in the VS fashion show all the time and in the most positive way.

to the person asking about homecoming dresses: If you order one from a dress shop online, a lot of them take custom measurements! If you do, be sure to order it an inch or two longer than you want, because when I ordered my prom dress off of one it was almost too short! Hope this helps.

Thank you for sharing that! :)

Hi! I'm a freshman in high school and my first homecoming is in 2 weeks. I'm 5'10 and I have no idea where to buy a dress and I'm freaking out about it! Any suggestions? Thanks :D

First off, you are absolutely beautiful! I love your hair! Mines kind of like that too but curly.

Anyways, I really like Charlotte Russe. They have dresses that aren’t too short and Top Shop. They’re a bit better and they have a section (at least in the one closest to me) for tall girls. It’s a bit more expensive but if you have the money then do it!

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!
