    Hi Bree!
    Yes I’m a member of the tall society and I love it. I’m 6’0 and I love to wear heels no less than 2 inches. I have been asked a few times why do I wear such high heels and my response is why not? They look great on me. My mom always taught me to embrace my height, stand tall, arch your back on don’t be ashame of your height because others wish they had it. I’m so glad she instilled those encouraging words in me during the time of my early school years. I can say that I didn’t drop my standards attracting a man that was tall as well. My significant other is 6’5 and we are s match made in heaven. Thank you for sharing this article! #teamtallchicks

      Hi Starr! Yes #TallGirlsUnite!
      Love hearing a bit of your story! Glad you nailed down that tall man too:-). Sounds like your mom is wonderful for reminding you how beautiful you are every day. So important to hear that repeatedly while growing up.
      Keep in touch!

    I’m 5″8 and I don’t really wear heels. If I do they are small ones. I like to salsa dance and it’s a bit hard to do if I’m towering over my partner. Or I get tired of having to hunch down to hear conversations of friends in the club when we are standing in our “girl circle”. If you like to wear heels more power to you, I just don’t feel the need because I’m already tall. I always viewed heels as a tool the short girls use. I already have the height so I’m good.

  3. Keepin it real says:

    Bree Bree girl I feel your pain. It’s rough for a tall girl. I’m 5’10” and sometimes you feel like an alien. I was insecure in middle school but by the time junior year of HS, I had hit my stride and my confidence level was high. I realized no point in wearing flats, it’s not gonna make me any shorter. I’m gonna stand out regardless so might as well look cute doing it.

  4. ATN says:

    I struggle with my height a lot, wishing I was shorter. I am 5’9. I hope one day I will gain more confidence, accept my height and be comfortable wearing heels.

  5. Yeh says:

    Loved this article. Do you boo.

  6. Angel says:

    Hit 6’0 and wore a size 12 in shoe at 14 so I can definitely relate. I struggled severely with my height growing up and got teased a lot, I would always wish I was shorter so I could fit in. Now I love my height and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I used to shy away from heels now I love wearing them! Not to gloat, but I’m pretty good looking and I have issues with guys being intimidated by me because of my looks plus height. It used to bother me I wouldn’t get asked out as much but now I look at it as an advantage and can easily weed out the guys who lack confidence. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Streetchic says:

    Bree! Thanks for this article. 5’11 here and I come from a family of tall women (mum, aunts, cousins). It was a bit difficult growing up. Nithing fit. I felt so awkward. At 27 now its such a different feel and perception of me. It’s more “model” and less “giraffe.” But I was the one who had to instill confidence in myself and body. Ladies find out what styles and silhouettes suit you and live in the confidence that brings! Don’t try to blend in because we were made to stand out 🙂

  8. Jay Marie says:

    I hate when people ask me “how tall are you”!

  9. JessLeeAnne says:

    Hi Bree! Thank you for inspiring others to shine! God Bless You!

  10. I’m 6’1 & can’t live without heels. Took me yrs to stop feeling self conscious and ignore the gawking

    1. Kora Clay says:

      I need to get like you!

    2. Yea I’m 5’10 and still trying to get over it

  11. Glamazon says:

    I’m 6′, EU41 and a fierce member of team tall – so much that I absolutely make it a point to compliment tall girls I spot who are on! My BFFs are 5’10 & 5’11 and the rest of my friends are short/average. I’m always wishing I could add confident, fly footers to my friend group. It hurts my heart to see girls slouching, in kitten heels or just looking off & unsure of themselves. I wasn’t born in any city you can dub the “land of tall” and I figure you had loads of tall shopping options for pants/jeans and loads of taller men. I got to evade the “body” questions since I was slender as a teen, but as an ex athlete & beauty ad model I still abhor the “Do you play ball/Do you model?” question. Either way, I actually feel odd not being tall(est) in my friend group – if I wear flats Lol. My heels are all 4-6″ 🙂 I have big curly hair, great skin & even better legs; Flats or not, I CANNOT go unnoticed. My thought has always been: If they’re going to stare, I might as well give it to ’em! Now that I’m well in my 20s and have comfortably figured out pants/jeans shopping? I’m 1000% comfortable. Floor seats at concerts, games, clubs, lounges, … no stress, I get to breathe better air and not be huddled with the masses – AND, I can spot EVERY viable man in the room. :)) Love to you, Bree, & all my #teamtall girls.

    All on us when we walk in a room…

  13. I’m 6’0 don’t real like heels but hey do your thing girl!!!!

  14. Alyson Perry says:

    Here I am at 5’10 thinking im really tall. I wear heals all the time. My favorite line to guys who think im too tall “drink some milk and get your hight game up!”

  15. I’m 5’9 maybe 5’10 and I really hate wearing heals cause I swear I’m taller than everyone .. Ugh maybe that just speaks on my self confidence

  16. Carol Edgar says:

    I’m 6-0 and will rock my heels

  17. Shan Tel says:

    I’m 5’11” and rock heels proudly! Nothing like a tall glass of water!

  18. I’m 6’2 and will rock 6 inch stilettos in a heartbeat! I used to HATE being tall bc I’ve been this height since I was 13, but now you won’t catch me without heels if I’m going out! The only thing I can’t stand about being tall is being asked 100x a day if I play basketball! No I’m a volleyball girl lol

  19. Tee Elle says:

    Heyyy! I’m 5’11” and I, too, am tired of the “Did you play basketball? No? Well, did you run track?” Um, no. And I’m over the “You don’t need those heels on!” commentary. Um, yes, I do because they go with my outfit. I’m not a flats type of girl. I think I actually follow you on IG…

  20. Tasha says:

    I’m 5’10 which I got from my fathers side (but my father didn’t receive the height lol). Most of my heels are 6″ and I love em. I’d be asked “why are you even wearing heels” and I just reply “don’t be jealous that I’m taller than you”. Shoot don’t be mad that I was blessed with these beautiful legs.

  21. Mette says:

    6,1″ from Denmark. Thanks for sharing your story. At 42 I’m not quite there with the heels yet. But I’m getting closer thanks to elle models like you.

  22. Uche says:

    Hi ladies! I’m 6ft 8 ins tall and I wear heels with my dresses. Flats ruin the look as far as I’m concerned! I have been this tall since I was 13 and used to HATE it. I wish I could go back in time and live from the age of 13 onwards with the love and confidence that I now have in myself, but never mind. Tall girls rock!!!

  23. Irene says:

    Love the article. I’m 5″9 and growing up I use to be insecure about my height until I got to high school sophomore year and saw girls tall like me and even taller I didn’t feel alone anymore. I wear heels when I feel like it, it’s more about comfort than anything with me. #tallGirlProblems

    1. Bree says:

      Hi Irene, it is a comfort thing. Took me a good while to get comfortable, but once you’re there nothing else matters!

  24. K says:

    Lol, I’m slightly above 6’1 and the most annoying question people ask is “do you play basketball?”

  25. Ashley says:

    I am also 32, and a 6’4″ woman who is curvy and loves to wear heels!! As a child it was def a struggle, but now I love an appreciate the skin I’m in. Thank god for tall girls!

  26. Jei says:

    Yessss! Tall women unite! I love this! Good for her owning it! I’m 5’10” + proud..all I wear is heels. When people ask how tall are you, it’s usually followed by “Do you model?” or “Did you play basketball?” to which I proudly answer yes to both. I love being tall.

  27. Streetchic says:

    Girls if you know of any good places for jeans, post them please! Always good to know if I’ve missed out on any

  28. Domonyque says:

    Omg I really wish I had that confidence in my height. I’m 19 & 6’0 and although my confidence has grown a tad since my adolescence I still don’t have the guts to wear heels. I love hearing stories of other tall women embracing their height though, it gives me hope that one day I will… Amazing article!

    1. Bree says:

      Hi there my Tall Sister! I certainly did not get comfortable overnight, but i’m here. For more stories from your fellow tall sisters check out ‘Meet Your Tall Sisters’ on thetallsociety.com. I LOVE sharing the stories from other tall woman. Have a look.
      Keep in touch!

  29. You guyz says:

    I’m not with the census here BUT I’m super tiny at age 24 I’m only 4″ 11 and omg I hear “how tall are you” or “omg ur so small” all the time. It’s somewhat mind blowing to me that people feel the need to pick out obvious physical traits. Some women try to make it appear that I’m somehow inferior or “less than”. Oh and when I tell them my husband is “6’0” they really jaw drop. I say embrace your skin, height, etc. I love being tiny. And your beautiful tall. Salo!

  30. PHILLY JAWN says:

    5 10 and loving my amazoncurves rock those heels girl

  31. DarkEmpress says:

    I’m 5’10 and I’m happy with my height. Just realize the only reason why people question the height of women is because they think women have to be diminutive to men. People like the idea of a woman being shorter than a man because that fits into the paradigm of a woman being submissive to a man. She has to be smaller so he can be perceived as dominant. Wear your heels and if a man tries to check you because you’re taller than him, just pat his head and tell him to stop whining like he is your son.

  32. Jere' says:

    I am 6feet as well as my sister. We wear heels and we love it. I embrace and love what God has given me including my height.

  33. I’m 6’1 and regularly rock heels. It took YEARS to bust out of my shell. In high school I was lanky and awkward. I developed late and was taller than all the boys. Now that I’m 32, I have to have a cute pair of heels to wear. I got over being stared at all of the time and just embraced it. You’d be surprised how many men (and sistas) love a tall woman. 😊

  34. Flor says:

    Thank you for the inspiration<3. I am a tall girl too and still struggle with my height. I always wanted to start wearing highheels but until today never had the courage to do so. But after reading your Story and the fact that you have been born in Rotterdam (where I was born too and currently still live) I might take that leap and just do it and love myself in the process.

    1. Bree says:

      Yay Flor! Ook een trotse Rotterdammer:)
      Reading your note warms my heart. Take the leap! Will you let me know how it goes?

  35. Peyton says:

    Hey everyone! I’m 6’1 and proud of it..sometimes lol it took me until Jr. year of high school to just finally accept it because I was not going to get any shorter . I really think having the inner confidence sets us tall women a part because if you have that confidence it makes life a little bit easier and it allows those comments that we’ve heard a million times to roll right off our backs. At times all it took was the wrong comment or stare that would have me doubting myself the rest of the night . And dating is another thing we have to overcome! I’m definitely going to check out the website

    1. Bree says:

      Hey Peyton! Please do come have a look at thetallsociety.com. One of things I enjoy the most is interviewing other tall woman, so check out some great stories in ‘Meet Your Tall Sisters’. #TallGirlsUnite

    Hi Bree, loving the article! I’m 6″0 and wear 3.5 inch heels. For me it’s about style and dresses look better with heels. People are going to stare anyway so give them something to look at. That’s my motto :0). I’m doing a campaign to get retailers to stock tall clothing instore. If you’re interested in taking part, please #standtallselfie on Instagram or Twitter X

  37. Kesha says:

    I’m 6’3″ and I like to wear heels also. I was always self conscious about my height until I went to college and started embracing it. I started wearing heels once I got of college and never looked back. I figured the height was here to stay, so why not own it. I’m used to the stares now and even hearing kids say “mommy she big” lol. I also get the basketball and height question everyday! I say embrace your uniqueness and beauty and walk tall and proud!

  38. CiCi says:

    I LOVE this! I grew up taller than everyone else, but by the time I hit my sophomore year of high school, I leveled out at about 5’8” on a good day. (I’m the shortie of the family because most of the men and women on my mom’s side are 6 footers.) My mom on the other hand is a 6’2”, size 13 shoe-wearing, curvy bad mamma jamma! Lol so reading your story, Bree, as well as all the other ladies is very inspiring. Though I’m “short” compared to some of my family, I am tall compared to most other women, but I wouldn’t trade it for a thing! It took me a while to get used to it, but I love it because seeing these stallion legs in heels is amazing! And I LOVE going out with my tall friends because when we walk in the room, all eyes are on us! Go tall girls!
