Being Tall

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 clothing-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.

In celebration of tall females, I created Famous Females of Height, which is a list of tall females of notoriety that I update as I discover additional famous females of height.

In case you just tuned in, you may wonder how my Famous Females of Height list relates to the topic of this blog. The purpose of my Famous Females of Height list is to show that there really are a lot of tall genetic women out there and therefore, height should not be a deterrent to femulators going out en femme.

I just updated the list with the new tall ladies that I encountered, as well as those provided by my regular tall list contributor, Peaches. If you are aware of any tall females of note that are not on the list, please send them along and I will add them.

Enjoy!

  2. I'm a supporter of both the women's Volleyball and Basketball programs at my alma mater, The University of Maryland. I'm six feet tall and most of those women are taller than me. These are some fabulous women.

    There was a tall girl in my high school who was about 6'2" back in the late 1950's. She always walked around slumped down and I suspect it would have caused back problems at some point in her life. Our BB team went to a scrimmage at nearby Maryland University and while she was waiting to play she met a 6'10" freshman BB recruit for Maryland. They clicked! All of a sudden she was walking tall at school -- and proud of it. And then everybody noticed how pretty she was! Nobody thought much of a person with such negative body language, but that was now behind her. Last time I saw her she and I were going to Maryland and she was still with her taller boyfriend.

    I love that there are stores where I can buy tall clothing. But the pandemic has knocked off one of these companies. Long Tall Sally is going out of business. They had limited items that fit my plus-sized body, but their bottoms worked for me.

  3. I used Long Tall Sally and I’m very sad they are closing. It was the only place I could find shoes in a 12 wide.
    I’m 6’ 3” and need big shoes and long dresses/skirts.
