This is my birthday week/weekend and I’m loving everything today! This is a shout out to my tall ladies!
Often times, in retail, we listen to people talk about what works for them and what doesn’t. I love talking with tall women because they really understand the struggle that I also go through daily. Having to order things online, having things always be TOO SHORT, and never being able to find anything that fully covers yourself in an appropriate way.
One of my favorite things is trying on a dress and having it fit like a tunic. Anyone else feel me on this? YES!
So here you go – 5 things only a tall girl would understand.
1 – length. Listen, I do not care how short you are, you can always find something and cuff if needed. Finding dresses or maxi dresses is so hard. Oh and don’t even get me started on rompers – camel toe is a real thing, TRUST me. When you are tall you have to add inches. And for you wedding buffs, remember your tall bridesmaids will always have to pay extra for length. It’s no Bueno.
2 – fitting under desks/tables – holy struggle. Especially when you have legs like mine. I am all leg, and they fit hardly under anything. (was anyone else thinking this was a serious post until now?)
3 – Jackets – finding a jacket that will fit you in the waistline and the arms is a challenge. You may be able to get length going up a size but that also increases the size in the waist too. I’ve been lucky enough to find some at Loft but the majority of the time I intentionally buy cropped jackets for a fashion statement and not for warmth.
4 – finding shoes. The majority of tall girls also have the blessing of big feet. This is something I really struggle with because it’s so hard to find shoes over a 12 in store. Suggestions are welcome!
5 – and the ultimate tall girl problem – finding tall men! (LOL!) we all want a prince charming that can reach things higher than we can, but for us tall girls, we just want someone to look us in the eyes!
I asked a few of my tall girlfriends to text me some of their daily struggles so that I could see if I was missing anything. Some of their responses were not only hysterical, but also so real. It’s a difficult thing finding something to fit your body but ultimately there are always ways around these challenges. It many ways you are able to really make an outfit unique and edgy mainly because you have to!
