29 Things Only Girls Over 5-Foot-9 Will Understand

We aren't bending our knees to look sexy — we're doing it so we fit in the photo.

1. You tend to stand out in group pictures with your girlfriends.

2. To avoid standing out you do this weird sexy squat.

Straight back, knees together, bend legs, and smile like your quads aren't aching.

4. Getting the whole of you in a mirror selfie is damn near impossible.

5. If you really want a mirror selfie you will probably have to do the sexy head tilt.

In extreme situations you will need both the sexy head tilt and the sexy squat. This can lead to you looking a bit crumpled.

6. Women's bathrooms in general are just not built for you.

There is no eye contact more awkward than over-stall eye contact.


9. You are definitely over 6 foot in all heels.

10. And it can feel kind of awkward being even more of a giant than normal.

But some shoes are just totally worth it.

11. If you go to a bar wearing heels you have a pretty good view of the whole place.

And the top of everyone's head.


16. It's great having super-long legs, but they tend to constantly be in the way.

17. Public transport just isn't built for you.

20. Sometimes it's hard to know whether something was meant to be a dress or a top.

You can be wearing a shirt for years and only realise it's actually meant to be a dress when they write it on the receipt at the dry cleaners.


21. Pretty much all jeans are ankle-grazers on you.

22. Shops always seem to run out of the largest shoe size first.

Or they just don't stock any of your size at all.

24. You often have to choose if you want your towel to cover your tits or your bum.

29. But you'd never want to be an inch shorter.
