Six Feet Two, Eyes of Blue


It has been a long while since I added anybody to the Famous Females of Height List, so let me reiterate the purpose of the list.

I am over six feet tall, so when I femulate, I am a tall woman.

About the time I started femulating in my early teens, I became interested in tall women because they affirmed my existence as a tall woman, i.e., I was not the only tall woman out and about in society. Few were as tall as me, but maybe there were enough out there so that I could blend in more easily as just another tall woman.

In the past, tall women tried to blend in with their shorter sisters, so they dressed down (pun intended); instead of celebrating their height, they tried to hide it (to appear less intimidating to men).

Also, tall women did not have a lot to choose from clothes-wise. Few clothiers catered to tall women, so tall women had to make do with what was available, which typically did not celebrate tall women's height.

Today, tall women are out and proud and celebrate their height. They have more clothing to choose from now that more clothiers recognize their potential as customers. They no longer dress down to hide their height. They wear high heels and leg baring skirts and dresses. They don't care if they are intimidating. They've come a long way!

It is a great time to be a tall woman, or a tall femulator.

This time, there are two new additions to the list and both women are over six feet tall!

  1. I am in exactly the opposite situation in that I would be short (5ft 2in) even for a woman. I mostly have to shop for petite size clothes and I can fully sympathise with short women who complain about the range and styles of clothes available to them.
    Possibly because my height does not make me stand out I tend to dress to blend in but I can completely understand why tall girls might want to dress more flamboyantly.

  2. Tall GGs also blog about the problems they have with other people reacting badly to their height... http://thejunoesque.com/

  3. Last Saturday, I spent the day out at IMATS (International Makeup Artists Trade Show) in Sydney. At 5'11" and wearing 6" heels and with no hits on my trans-dar, I didn't stand out and I didn't feel tall, but I did feel short when I put my flats back on to walk back to the railway station!

  4. Not all women are tall and proud ~ on freecycle I saw a posting: "OFFER: lots of size 9 high heels. My fiance prefers me in kitten heels so I'm not taller than him."

  5. Missy Franklin is not only tall, she has a smile that is bigger and a cheerful and honest personality to match. She is not only a woman of height she is a woman of class.

    I must admit that it's about time the average size woman should be six feet tall.It is very tiring to expect men to carry this mantle.In the future women should look down on us little men.We deserve to be ruled by very tall intelligent and elegant superwomen.
