    That's a bit like me and my boyfriend. He's 2 inches taller than me but I'm about 2 or 3 inches taller than his dad...and his mum's tiny! You don't notice it as much when you get to know people personally though. His brother's about 5'9" too, so again, generations getting bigger all the time.

    Almost all the clothes I own don't fit me properly. Going shopping is a nightmare for me because when I see something I like, inevitably it doesn't fit. Lets face it, you can take in clothes, I can't make them longer

    Also, tallness comes with giant clodhopper feet. Not particularly elegant. I'm size 11, which also makes finding shoes rather difficult.

    You should work your lovely feminine petiteness, girl.
    Yeah I'm lucky because, despite people considering 5'7" to be 'tall' it's pretty much the average female height in Britain, so the average pair of size 10 jeans is a perfect fit for me (obviously width is as important as height when it comes to finding clothes that fit, but that's another ballpark...)

    I have a friend who's 5'11" with size 9 feet and she has such problems finding nice clothes that fit. There are specialist shops for tall women, but obviously less variety of clothes. I think it's getting better though, as shops are realising there's a market. I remember the same friend once told me that a shop assistant said that only the men's section sold size 9 shoes. How rude!

    I am the same way. I especially don't understand/am annoyed by short women who wear heels and are still below average height. Why do they do that? What's the point? I wouldn't be impressed by the marginally increased height of a mouse on little mouse stilts. I'm not impressed by the incessant *CLICK* *CLICK* *CLICK* either. /rant

    But really I'm just bitter because usually the only pants that fit me in the hips are too short in the legs.
    I don't wanna!

    ^ I think women wear heels not so much to be taller but because men like the angle it gives their rear. I am not a heel wearer, though I am petite, I hate the stupid click, click, click too! I am bitter because so many dresses don't come in petite and then I can't sew a hem worth a damn.

    But I have to laugh that short women are just shorties but tall are long and leggy. My legs long in proportion to my frame. I don't look like a child, lol.

    Apparently heels make your legs look hot. I don't wear them though.

    In my late teens I used to wear three inch heels. I can't imagine it now. I'd fall on my face!

    I've actually never worn heels. Not since I was a little girl and they made plastic ones with Barbie's head on them.

    Heels make girl's butts look better somehow. It's the weird angle like you said. I don't really like heels on girls that much, just an opinion. It's more of the image that they put out of themselves with them on rather than how the shoes look on them though, I'm not very attracted to someone who tries way too hard.
