    Shortie

    Hi all! So, as most of you know..I'm short. I always have been. I stopped getting taller at maybe...age 12? All of 5'1 tall. ^_^ Now, I love my height. I love that most guys make me feel really small. I like that I can get piggy back rides and be carried to bed. I like that I'll...

    I went to the doctor the other day

    and they measured me and told me I'm 5' 1" and that I've apparently shrunk. The doctor said I was 5' 4" in 6th grade, but now I'm starting high school this year. It's probably all that stupidly delicious cappuccino ._. everyone around me is tall and stuff and here i am just...

    I'm 5'3. I ain't short,

    there's just a lot of people taller than me. Even some children are taller than me smh. My man is 5'11 and I love him the way he is. I don't wish for him to be over 6ft. :-)

    I'm 4'9," petite & 103 pounds.

    In my opinion this isn't a bad thing, if I can't reach something I use a step stool or wear hidden wedge platform sneakers so that I'm 5ft tall. The only time being this small sucks is when your bigger husband is abusing you and your too small and weak compared to him to fight...

    Im 5'0 and my boyfriend is 5'5 :D I absolutely

    love his height. I wouldn't want him taller :). we compliment each other and I fit right under his chin. Nothing wrong with being a short guy- there are always short girls. Kids in school are just being mean and will always try to find something to pick on about you.<3...

    I'm 5'3. I felt that fashion magazines really

    ignored us short ladies, so I've launched a blog to inspire other petites and also a shop that sells petite designer clothes. Please check it out BombPetite.com

    Man, I'm 18 and I'm only 5'2

    and thia stinks! I wish I was taller because tall women look so elegant and I admire them so much. I have been 5'2 since I was 13. My two twin best friends are both 5'10. I look like a ******* midget with them. I wanna be 5'11 like Michelle Obama.

    Take It All In Stride.

    I'm a whopping 5 feet and 2 inches! I don't really mind much. The only time it "bothers" me, is when things are high up on shelves. Shopping can sometimes be tricky if I can't find someone tall to reach things for me. You'd be suprised at how many time I've been yelled at by...

    Not A Problem... Usually.

    I'm 17, and since I'm five foot one and have -ahem- girlish features (yes, I do mean small boobs) I look around twelve or thirteen. Normally, when it comes to the retail environment, that's not a problem--I just get a step stool, no biggie. But... I work in a store that happens...

    Nobody talks about how your feet don't reach

    the floor when you're sitting. I'm 5'1" and need a footstool at the dinner table...and in the bathroom. Don't judge me. Petite pants are hardly petite, when they're for women 5'4" and usually have an inseam of 31 or 30 inches. I need 29 inches for boots and 27.5 for flats. I don...

    Success is the best revenge

    short. I walk into a room and the subtext is short. Women pat me on the head. Men think they can mess with me and they do. Not because they are good or smart, but because they are taller. My boss  regularly, openly  ridicules  me for being short. Makes fun of the...

    I was born with Achondroplasia,

    a form of dwarfism. Because of that, I'm only 4ft tall. Life hasn't been easy, I was bullied in school, kids calling me shrimp or midget.

    I've always had a problem with my height.

    At 5'3" I feel so insecure. I'm also kinda chunky which doesn't make things any better. It seems like all my younger cousins are outgrowing me... I'm happy for them but I hate being short.
