QOTD - Wed.

How tall are you? Do you like that or not?

I asked this on my bb and found it interesting that I thought of some people as way taller than they are, or shorter or whatever.

I am average at 5ft 4inches. I don't mind. I could stand to be a little taller since DH is 6'2

I'm 5'8". I have looooooong legs so i have a hard time finding pants that are long enough. I wouldn't mind being a little shorter. When i wear heels, i feel like i'm towering over everyone and i dont like that.

5'7" it's ok, but I hate when I have to dress up for something and my shoes are a bit taller!

I am 5'4" and don't mind it, but people really consider that short-ish. I never considered it short though. DH is 6' but I think it works nice.

I'm 5'3", and the only problem I have with it is finding plus size petite pants - I'm always hemming pants. Or wearing capris as full length (but a bit short) pants lol.

I'm 5'1".. shortest of ALL of you so far Lol I would NOT mind being a little taller. I find pants to be too LONG even if they are petit! It's annoying as hell. Capris? More like pants that are a bit short Smile Petit capris are ok though and that is what I usually buy. Otherwise forget it lol My DH is about 6' (6'1" if he were to stand up straight all the time :lol:) I'm really short and stand on my tip toes to kiss him LOL or my neck just hurts. haha I gotta tell him to back off sometimes cuz my neck starts hurting Lol I hate being short. I can't reach the top shelves in my own house and the plug ins in the bathroom are really high up even standing on my tip toes doesn't really help lol its annoying.

5'10"
I wouldn't mind being a little shorter only cause I am the same height as Dh. If I wear heels I am taller. I guess I would like for him to be a little taller than me. Otherwise I don't mind being this height, except that everyone thinks I play basketball and I am one of the MOST uncoordinated people alive!

I thought that I would add that I am the shortest of my siblings:eek: My older bro is 6'2" and my younger bro is 6'4", I can't really call him my 'little' brother:D

I'm 5 foot 8. I don't mind my height at all.

What I do mind is my proportions! I have long arms (forget wearing long sleeve shirts) and a long torso (bathing suits are never long enough). I used to have to buy tall pants, but that hasn't been a problem since I went up a few sizes. I always joked with my DH that nothing comes in "Beth" size. Wink

i always thought i was 5"4' until i made the boys' growth chart. apparently i'm 5"3' it's ok, i'm taller than a few of my friends so it doesn't bother me so much DH is 6"1'. I had to stand 2 steps higher than him at the alter when we got married so we could kiss

I say that I am 5'10, but unfortunately I think I am closer to 5'11...and DH is barely 6'0. I rarely wear heels b/c I feel like a beast already! So, obviously, I would like to be shorter. I am mostly all legs...buying pants sucks...my arms are kinda long so sleeves are sometimes a problem, but not as bad as pants! My sister is just as tall as me, except her torso is longer and legs are shorter. My mom used to be 5'9 but has shrunk, my dad is about 6'2 or so...but my mom's brother is 6'5 :shock: We are tall folks Lol

I am 5'3ish. I can't complain. Most of my family is taller, so it's kind of odd to me. My dad & brothers are 6 ft +, my sister is 5'10, my other sis is 5'5, and then my mom is 5'10. Odd if you ask me.

I'm 5 feet even and I hate it hate it hate it hate it.

Did I mention that I hate it?

Yeah, my height is probably the second worst thing about myself (my extra flab is the number one offender). Clothes shopping puts me in the worst mood. Grrrrrrrrrrrr And I was teased relentlessly in grade school about it. Kids can be so mean!

And I'm with Trina, I buy capris for "normal people" and wear them as pants too. But only with sandals as they look like floods if I try to wear them with socks and shoes as they aren't quite long enough. I don't hem my own pants, and spend a fortune getting my jeans hemmed. Which is another frustration with this baby weight, I want to get back into my old wardrobe that's already customize for my height but I can't seem to squeeze back into that size yet.

Great, now I'm in a crummy mood because of dwelling on my weight and height. *sigh* Lol
