Tall women “I used to wear heels”

Interesting quote by Elle McPherson:

“I used to wear heels because I wanted to show people I wasn’t ashamed of being tall. But I don’t wear them any more because you don’t have to wear heels to be beautiful. I can’t even remember the last time I wore heels.”

Truth be told, I never wear heels. I’m not embarrassed about being tall, but I have the kind of personality where I prefer less attention, so I prefer not to. I think tall women look beautiful in heels, but it’s just not for me!

I found the quote, by the way, on this Style Feeder post about the best combos for shoes and tall pants. Check it out!

I am a 29 yr old, 6′0″ curvy girl from Minnesota, and I am writing to you to request a favor. Here is my issue. Have you heard of the “butt lifting” or “levanta cola” jeans? Well, they are simply amazing for giving us tall girls a curvy bumb that is perky. However, I have had the MOST difficult time finding any with an inseam suitable for my 36″ inseam needs :) I have found some great long jeans at, but they don’t have any of the butt lifting/levanta cola jeans. And so I sent them a little message asking them to get them in, though I know just one suggest won’t due. I also wrote to other stores who supply the jeans, and they say they cater to the “general population.” Mean talls girls get to suffer ;) So I was wondering if you could do me a huge favor of writing to alloy ( and suggest they add those jeans to their line as well? I would truly appreciate it #1, and #2 it would be great to help offer those flattering jeans to the tall ladies too! Thank you so much!

I don’t see any bad being tall.. I’m only 5′2” height.. and still dreaming to add some height.

as for wearing heels.. it isn’t bad as long as you can walk comfortably okay.

I am 5′9″ and USE to love wearing heels. Danced in heels, worked in heels, almost always in my heels. Time passes and while still consider myself young I have painful swollen knees. I have had surgery on one and it only helped for a couple years. The other one also needs surgery but haven’t had the guts to go through it again. My doctors told me I have my high heel shoes to thank for the trouble I live with today. If I could change back time I would and wear sexy flip flops!

I’m 5ft 8, and I think being tall is fabulous. Flats can be just as sexy a s heels, it just ndepends on your outfit, the confidence you wear them with.
