Very tall women have every reason to feel feminine, like the one above. Here’s why and how.

Here are encouraging words for tall women who believe they’re too masculine to attract men or who think they’ll never find a man who’ll make them feel feminine.

Though many tall women glow with confidence and pride, other tall women believe their height is an obstacle to happiness and feeling feminine or “normal.”

Here is an online post, copied and pasted, word-for-word, from a tall support site:

6’2″ Lisa wrote (January 31st, 2009)

I’m 22 and still struggle with my height. I play basketball and it is hard to feel feminine being tall with a muscular/athletic build.

In HS, there was only a few boys taller than me and they always end up dating short girls… I hate that.

Height has benefits in athletics and tall girls never get teased, but it really makes me worry that I will never find a husband who will make me feel like a woman.

I am very healthy, but way about 200 pounds because of my athletic stature and I get jealous when I see women being lifted off their feet on tv.

Encouring Words You Need

Depend upon YOURSELF for feeling feminine. This can be accomplished many ways:

1) a complete makeover

2) a spa treatment

3) a professional manicure

4) a new hairdo/cut/tint

5) jewelry

6) clothes, especially feminine colors such as pink, orange, violet, purple, etc.

7) feminine mannerisms, such as how you position your legs when sitting; your language (do you swear a lot?); and other mannerisms: how do you chew food or gum? What are your table manners?

8) fragrance

But most of all, how feminine you “feel” comes from inside your BRAIN.

As for longing to be lifted off the floor? Did Lisa mean literally scooped up and carried around, let alone without much effort?

If so, she, and many others, need to realize that not all men can do this, even with a “normal” height 130 pound woman!

As a former personal trainer, I know this to be a fact. It’s an illusion created by TV shows and movies.

The actors on TV may be getting help with special effects or an unseen booster under the actress.

But even if it looks unaided, the fact is, some men are simply not fit enough to do what Lisa longs for.

Remember, short 200 pound women can’t be easily scooped up either, yet manage to find loyal husbands!

Think of all the females you’ve seen in your lifetime who were masculine, or women you weren’t sure might be a man.

Were they necessarily tall? Do you think runway models are masculine or not woman-enough to attract men?

Think of actresses around six feet tall, such as Sigourney Weaver, Brooke Shields and Charlize Theron.

Are they masculine? Think of the women you’ve seen who were masculine. What about these women made them masculine?

  • Being tall?
  • Or hairstyle & clothes?
  • Mannerisms?

I’ve seen masculine-appearing women who looked this way because of their 1) hairdo, 2) clothes, 3) facial features and 4) body shape — SHAPE, not height, but the shape.

I went bowling one day and the woman in the next lane was between 5-10 and 5-11, and from behind, she looked like a man.

She was wearing a dark blue sweatshirt; blue jeans; no makeup; a plain face with hard features; no jewelry; had very short hair like a man’s; and a heavyset body with no curves — and I couldn’t tell if she had breasts, either. Her height was just a coincidence.

I learned, though, that she was indeed a woman. And the androgyny had nothing to do with her height.

“Height doesn’t deplete femininity,” says Renee Sunday, MD, an anesthesiologist who’s 5-10.

“So you can still wear the heels and the skirts and the makeup — IF you desire. Dress in a way that makes you comfortable.

“Researchers have suggested that wearing high-waisted clothing helps to cinch the waist and give you the hourglass shape.

“However, good eating habits and self-care will ALSO do that.

“Tall females can be cute and sexy and even desirable.

“So if someone can’t handle your tallness, that’s their problem. But don’t ever dummy down — make them come up to your level.

“And you do that by walking proud, loving who you are, and allowing respect and laughter to lead the way.”

Never depend on a man to make you feel like a woman. This power should come from inside you yourself. Own your tall height!
