Tall Gal

I'm around 5'11", which is considered "Amazon Woman" around all the shorties here.  My biggest prayer for meeting a guy would be "Please oh please be taller than a barstool", hehe.  I love being tall, it's all the people who are short that hate it.  I rarely get to wear a nice pair of heels without getting all the "You don't need them" comments.. D'uh, I know that, I LIKE 'em, lol.  At my height, clothes are a pain to fit right.  The manufacturers seem to think if you're tall, you're also obese as well.  Actually, I don't think they really give much consideration to the tall folks, come to think of it, since my jeans go halfway up my calves when I sit down, hahaha.

Remember meeting a woman in a fancy bar who was sitting down on a barstool. We started talking when I realized she wa almost looking me in the eyes - sitting down - I'm 6'5! I giggled looked down and asked where her shoes were. <br />
She was 5'11" barefoot, 6'4" in heels. Confident, tall and intimidated everybody else.

intimidated? that's not helping.. i think girls with height 5'11 are awesome. :D

It was GREAT. She loved it! She explained that men don't know how to act around a tall confident woman.

I have seen a sign near the freeway in Pasadena California that reads, "Big and Tall, Hefty and Grand sizes for Men." I still think you should make a Lane Bryant for outsized or diferent shaped men. <br />
<br />

I'm 5'11" too and I'm not fat. I get my jeans at Gap and Charlotte Russe. They are kind of expensive at Gap but they're only like $30 at Charlotte Russe.

The garment makes get most of their profit out of the average size and shape which drives the market and keeps those of us who are shaped different always looking a little out of sorts.<br />
<br />
I like Lane Bryant, a place that makes clothes for bigger and taller or shorter women. <br />
<br />
Maybe guys should make a Lane Bryant for me. <br />
<br />
Now there is an idea that CAN Be MADE INTO MONEY. <br />
<br />
Good luck, <br />
<br />

If it makes you guys feel any better, I'm 5'11 and have a hard time getting clothes too.<br />
<br />
Of course I am a guy and am obese, so...

I am tall when in Japan!! <br />
<br />
At Five-foot -ive, I am averaged as middeling, in the midist of normal, and medium. <br />
<br />
It goes along with status quo, noted but not special, and mediocre.<br />
<br />
So dear lordly tall ones, you have an edge, an inch or more, and a whole bag of extra tricks because of that <br />
gift of greater height. <br />
<br />
Dizzying as it may seem, and incongruent with average as it is,<br />
<br />
Be TALL!! :)

haha. i'm 5'10, and i hate it. I feel like such a giant around all my friends, including most of my guy friends too, and i WISH i had the confidence you do to wear heels, cuz if I do, i feel ever more giant-like, and even more awkward. tall-ness and me don't get along. I know i should accept it and embrace it, but i'm not at the stage in my life where I can.
