14 Tall Girl Problems

1. Jeans

I mean my capris, because “a bit above the ankles” will never be in style. 

2. “Have you grown?”

I have been this tall since I was 16 years old.

3. “I love being tall” you’re like 5’7…

I hate to break it to you but you are not tall.

4. Short shower heads


It’s okay, I didn’t want to wash my hair anyway.

5. Looking like a giant next to your friends

Maybe we could sit down for a picture?

6. “Why are you wearing wedges/heels?”

These wedges are cute, and I don’t mind being the tallest person in the room.


7. Long sleeves are not long enough.

Luckily I live in Florida and I can avoid long sleeves most of the year.


8. “Amazon woman”

Not okay, never okay.

9. Seeing over a bathrrom stall

This is not uncomfortable at all.

10. Ducking to see your face in a bathroom mirror

I guess I should’ve checked my makeup while I was in the stall.

11. “Do you play basketball?”

Volleyball yes, but I don’t know why you’re even asking because you’re a stranger behind me in line at the grocery store.

12. This skirt is not that short, I just have long legs…

It would be a miracle to find a cute romper or skirt that went mid-thigh on me.

13. Short girls with tall boyfriends

One less potential canidate taken by someone that doesn’t have a 5’10” minimum height requirement. 


14. “You’re tall”

I don’t tell short people they’re short, so can we please talk about something else?
