Being Tall

Hey guys

So for today's chatty post I thought I would explain the daily probs with being 5ft 10 (I'm around that height, haven't checked recently lol) But I would class myself as tall - especially when the following things that have happened to me..



The first prob is meeting guys. I have Tinder (yes it's shit) and I literally have to put my height in the bio lol. One time I was sat down next to a guy in a night club and got chatting to him. He seemed pretty decent, until we both got up next to each other to go dance. Let's just say I found an excuse for a quick escape - he was much shorter than me. Many of these type situations have happened to me. I don't want you thinking there's a big problem with girls going out with guys shorter than them, it's absolutely fine, just for me personally I don't feel comfortable with it.

Another problem I have to deal with is when group photographs are taken. I can't just stand anywhere if I wana look "cute". Sometimes I have to stand hunched to even get myself in the shot hah! I do stand out in photo's and I don't know if that's a good or bad thing?

I hate buying jeans sometimes. Some shops do length 32 max, and I have to wear length 34. If I don't want the cropped jean look I have to make sure they are long enough for me. The clothes issue doesn't end up there. Even things like maxi dresses can come up short, so sometimes I can miss out on lovely clothes because they just don't fit me. And don't get me started on body suits..  I also find it a task to find heels that aren't too high but are nice.



Even though being tall can be VERY annoying sometimes. The good thing is I can reach to some shelves that others can't, and I am tall enough to go on all the roller coasters. JOKE.
No really there can be benefits to being tall really, like when I gain weight it doesn't show as easily. I've always told myself "supermodels are tall" haha. I'm trying to look at the positive side too because no one is really 100% happy with their body are they?

Is there one thing you hate about your body, and one thing you like? Share in the comments will be interesting to read :)

Ps. Any of you reading this tall too?!

Love Laura xxx

  3. I'm the total opposite to you! I'm only 4ft 11 so I totally know how annoying your height can be for many different reasons. I can't wear maxi dresses at all. They drown me haha. I also know the struggle of finding a perfect pair of jeans to fit your length. Topshop petite is always my go to thank god!x

  7. I have a friend who is quite tall as well and as I was reading this post I nodded at all of these cons of being tall. These are exact same things she complains about too :) But I'm sure there are lots of positives on being a tall person. Me being a short one, I can't see much when at concerts or festivals. But I like the fact that I can wear heels without a fear of being taller than a guy :)

  8. I'm 5'8 but I still feel your pain I'm so much taller than my friends, luckily I've bagged myself a boyfriend that is taller than me! I hate wearing heels because I already am so much taller than everyone I feel like I don't need them?
