Hello! Another tall girl here. I guess though, unlike many, I LOVE being tall and wouldn't trade it for short or average ever. I'm happy to walk through the world looking right over the top of others...it's the best view ever! My DH is 5 or 6" shorter than I as well. Besides, without me, how would all the people at the grocery store get stuff off the top shelf? I'm forever being asked to retrieve this, retrieve that, haha!
Being tall is AWESOME.
I usually buy jeans from Alloy (up to a 39" inseam, though I need 37") or occasionally Wrangler and VS. I like shirts from Gap in the tall size because of the long sleeves. I wear tankini swimwear because one piece suits either run up my heiny or pull down off my chest...yikes!
One thing that always gives me a laugh is my friend, who is between 5'7 and 5'8, and she thinks she's "so tall." She tries to commiserate with me about the difficulties of "tallness" yet she's really just on the high side of average, scraping the bottom of "tall." She can wear the sad little "tall" pants you find occasionally in stores, you know, the ones with the 34" inseam that look like capri pants on actual tall people? She can also wear a normal shirt without it looking like a 3/4 sleeve shirt. I let her have her delusion, but really, if you can find clothes in an average department store, you've not suffered the difficulties of really searching for tall clothes! Don't get me wrong, I love my height, but clothes shopping is so annoying! It's always online, and then you hope and hope that when it gets here it will actually fit, or it's back to UPS again!
