I remember being 14, a freshman in high school, and walking down senior hallway towering over everyone. I’m 5’11” now, I stopped growing in 10th grade, so I was pretty darn tall for my age. Everyone always made fun of me for being so tall. I’m also going to school for theatre, and it’s definitely difficult getting cast as good roles in plays when you’re taller than all the other women/as tall as the men, so my height has always been a touchy subject for me. I’m 21 now and I’m just finally starting to embrace my height. I love that you guys have this blog- it helps to show how awesome tall women are. My tall friends and I have the Tall Girls Club, and now that I’ve found this, this is my internet version of that club :)
Thanks for sharing you’re great story! I know how it feels being tall in the performance world because I used to dance. I got to know the back of the stage very well :P I’m happy the FYTG gets to be associated with the original Tall Girl Club ;). Walk tall and proud!
I'm so glad I was directed to this blog... I'm 20, 6'1", STILL FREAKING GROWING, and have been the tallest girl all my life. I am called an Amazon freak on a daily basis. I am so insecure about my height.. but I love this blog. Thank you for creating it.
We’re glad you found us! Screw those lame people, they’re the freaks for calling you that :P Never be insecure because, though it sounds cliche, they’re just jealous! Walk tall and proud!
I'm 5'11 and felt really insecure about my height alot of yesterday, shopping for heels for my birthday. Turning 18 and will start going clubbing etc (English) where I would really love to wear heels. Found some insane platforms, literally soso nice just don't want to look like an idiot being soo tall??
If we were put up to the task of finding you a killer tall girl birthday outfit (and many to come in what’s bound to be a fun year), you better believe that we’d slip you into a pair of sky high heels, ESPECIALLY because it’s YOUR day! It’s your night to shine, the last thing you want to do is blend in when all eyes should be on you. And believe us, we know that there’s nothing more gratifying then getting a little extra attention by turning heads above the rest ;) Cheers!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM LUCY AND VANESSA! Have a wonderfully tall celebration!
For the tall ladies, I come from a family of tall women. My sister is 6'0 and wears 5 inch heels minimum, daily. She refuses to wear any heels less then 5 inches. My mom is 6'0 and wears 4 inches. My aunts are 5'8 - 5'10 and feel the same. Nothing smaller then 4 inches. Be proud of your height !
Now that sound like my kind of family!!!! Get those ladies together and you have your own FYTG Army! Next family get together snap a photo and submit the awesomeness for all to see :)
I am 19 yo male, 6ft 3"-ish and I would love to find a tall girl. Now come at me :P haha. Seriously though, love that you are committed to showing tall girls that it's okay to be how they are. I can just see being with a shorter girl painful. So be proud and loud cos I can only speak for me, I love me some tall girls ;)
Hey tall girls, do we have any takers for Mr. dreamsetting? Thanks so much for your support. We, at FYTG, try to show girls its GREAT to be tall, but sometimes it feels better to hear it from a guy ;) Rock on tall guy!!
How do you get the confidence to wear high heels if your tall!? I'm 15 and 5'8 and supper insecure about my height but i don't want to be...
Confidence doesn’t always grow over night. You’ve got to take the steps towards accepting yourself, no matter what others think, both inside and out. The more you embrace your own individual beauty, the more others will praise you. Whether you’re 5’0” or 6’8” if you can’t walk tall and proud, no one will see you as tall or proud.
