what about dating a Shorter Man for tall women

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As a tall woman, if you limit yourself to only dating taller men, you shrink your potential dating pool by about 80 percent or more. As tempting as that might be, doing so really sells yourself, and a lot of great guys…well, short.

That’s not to say that dating shorter men won’t have the occasional awkward moment. The “socially acceptable” couple consists of a taller man and a shorter woman, and to buck that trend means sticking your tongue out at society…and maybe your mother. The decision becomes even trickier if you’re a woman who loves her shoes. Throw on a pair of heels and an inch-or-two difference in height can quickly become five or six inches when dating a shorter man.

So how do you tackle this issue? That depends. Picture this:modelul-madalina-ghenea-face-senzatii-la-dansez-pentru-tine-din-italia_2

You’re getting ready for a hot date with a new guy. You know he’s a little shorter than you, but so far your height hasn’t been an issue. You throw on aslinky dress, do your hair, paint your nails, then just as you’re about to strap your sexy red stilettos to your feet, you pause. Yes, these shoes go perfectly with your outfit. Yes, you feel like a million bucks while wearing them. No, the flats you have as an alternative don’t do nearly as much for your legs. But…these would definitely make you much taller than your date. Will he mind? Will he ask you to change? Will he want to go out with you again?

Unfortunately, these are valid questions. And the answers will vary based on the guy. Some men just won’t have the confidence to walk alongside a woman who is clearly taller than him. But, is that the kind of guy you really want to date?

When deciding whether to wear heels around a shorter man, ask yourself a few questions:

  • If you were going out with friends or a taller man, would you hesitate to strap on your heels?
  • Does the idea of towering over your date bother you?

If you answer “no” to both questions, put those bad-boy heels on! This date of yours knew exactly what he was getting into when he asked you out, and chances are he’s more than prepared to be the Keith Urban to your Nicole Kidman, or the Tom Cruise to your Katie Holmes.

The fact is, the decision to wear heels should hinge solely on your own comfort with the idea, not on the comfort of the guy you’re dating. No fashion-loving female should feel obligated to give up the shoes she loves for a guy who isn’t confident enough to love her in them.

It’s hard enough as it is just to find clothes that fit your longer proportions, and what about finding things to even look good on your taller frame? There are certain things to take into consideration when putting together an outfit. Whether you want to emphasize your height or downplay it, I’ve put together some tips on dressing for tall women.

Avoid all over baggy outfits. It will only serve to make you look bigger.  If you prefer to wear looser fitting styles, try balancing your outfit by wearing wide leg trousers with a well fitting top, or skinny jeans with a tunic or sweater. Well fitting doesn’t have to mean tight.

Don’t be afraid to wear patterns and bold prints. Tall women are actually good candidates for wearing bold pieces since they are less likely to get lost within their outfits. You can tone it down by sticking to just 1 bold piece. Pair a bold top with neutral bottoms, or a bright patterned dress with a plain cardigan or jacket.

Highlight your legs with heels. It’s a myth that tall women can’t get away with wearing heels.  While it’s true that many tall women don’t feel comfortable wearing heels, that doesn’t mean they don’t look good in them. If you want to wear heels, go ahead. They look great and make long legs look even better.

Incorporate a pop of color into every outfit. If you prefer wearing darker colors, a subtle pop of color will really go a long way in making your outfit stand out. It can be as simple as adding one piece to your outfit. Try throwing on a chunky colorful necklace, fashion scarf, or wear bright colored shoes.

Medium length dresses and skirts are best for downplaying height. Long floor length dresses and skirts will make you look taller. Wear whatever is comfortable for you.

For de-emphasizing height, avoid monochromatic color schemes. Stick to brighter colors with neutral bottoms, or colorful bottoms and plain tops. Wearing contrasting colors will create a horizontal line break at your center, making you look shorter.

Asymmetrical tops and wide belts are great at creating more interesting line breaks in your outfit.

Longer jackets will make you appear shorter.

If you’re insecure about wearing high heels, try low ones. Even a 1/2 – 1 inch is enough to make your legs look great. Flats are also a good option for taller women not wanting to draw attention to height. They’re stylish and won’t give  you extra inches.

Keep these tips in mind when shopping and putting together outfits. They will help make you look your best whether your goal is to detract attention from your height or emphasize it. Remember that tall women can pull off many different clothing styles and look great, so wear whatever is comfortable for you.

  • Being 5ft 10 inches (1 meter 78cm) or more. This is 6 inches taller that the average women’s height in the USa.

2. You may find dresses are often too short – use this to your advantage and wear them as tunics with leggings or jeans.

3. Keep thing feminine with flared, A-line or peplum skirts – all these styles work great with your shape.

4. With fitted or shift dresses, try to choose styles with blocks of pattern or solid colour in various portions of the dress – all over colour from top to bottom will be too severe.

5. Big bold patterns work best for you; smaller ones can get a bit lost. Also try nipping in the waist with a slim belt, this helps to break up the pattern and flatter your curves.

6. Simple structured dress work wonderfully with your figure, showing off your best bits and complementing your height.

7. Maxi skirts and dresses will really emphasize your height and show that your proud of your height. You may have trouble finding dresses long enough for you, so either get them made to measure or a seamstress could add to the length of existing pieces.

8. When looking for knitwear long layering looks fab – but always a simple structure with a fine knit.

9. Flatter your proportions with chunky statement jewellery and large bags

10. And finally – don’t be afraid to wear heels! They can boost your confidence, make you feel sexy and ooze confidence.

 

Study shows that tall women face higher cancer risk

Taller women may face a higher risk of many cancers than their shorter counterparts, according to a US study.

Researchers looked at a sample of nearly 145,000 postmenopausal women aged 50 to 79 for the analysis published on Thursday in the US journal Cancer Epidemiology.

They found that each additional 10 centimetres of height was linked to a 13 percent higher risk of getting cancer.

“Ultimately, cancer is a result of processes having to do with growth, so it makes sense that hormones or other growth factors that influence height may also influence cancer risk,” said lead author Geoffrey Kabat, senior epidemiologist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in New York.

After 12 years of following women who entered the study without cancer, researchers found links between greater height and higher likelihood of developing cancers of the breast, colon, endometrium, kidney, ovary, rectum, thyroid, as well as multiple myeloma and melanoma.

Lifestyle influence

The height association remained even after scientists adjusted for factors that might influence these cancers, such as age, weight, education, smoking habits, alcohol consumption and hormone therapy.

“We were surprised at the number of cancer sites that were positively associated with height. In this data set, more cancers are associated with height than were associated with body mass index (BMI),” added Kabat.

Some cancers saw an even higher risk among taller women, such as a 23 to 29 percent increase in the risk of developing cancers of the kidney, rectum, thyroid, and blood for each additional 10 centimetres of height.

None of the 19 cancers studied showed a lower risk with greater height.

The study did not establish a certain height level at which cancer risk begins to rise, and Kabat said it is important to remember that the increased risk researchers found was small.

“It needs to be kept in mind that factors such as age, smoking, body mass index, and certain other risk factors have considerably larger effects,” he said.

“The association of height with a number of cancer sites suggests that exposures in early life, including nutrition, play a role in influencing a person’s risk of cancer.”

Dressing the tall woman can be challenging and sometimes even frustrating, especially when living in a society where most clothes are made for petite women. Tall women are often stuck wearing ill-fitting clothes that make them look sloppy and awkward.

Lisa Butcher, a model with 182 cm height, understand the constraints that women with this towering high in terms of fashion. He recounts some of the difficulties experienced and provide appropriate solutions for Tall Woman. Here are some fashion tips that need to be noticed for Tall Women.

3. Flat or High Heels?

Many opinion if your body is already tall, there is no need to use high heels. This is a wrong opinion, because high heels is not to elevate your body but to make your posture seem more beautiful. Although already tall, you still need the high heels. The key is the length of your foot, if you fall short legs (height is not always long-legged, it could be a long waist) then you absolutely need high heels. Conversely, if you have a relatively long legs, flat shoes would be more appropriate for your posture.

4. Big Feet

With a towering height, to be sure your feet are also much bigger than women in general. Advantages? Of course not. In selecting footwear, the choices become limited because of the size of “big size” is not made for all models of shoes and not supplied in large quantities. Most choose to order footwear they want. The next problem is that when worn with matching pants are wrong, your legs will look even bigger and not in balance with your upper body slimness. The solution, use a pair of pants with boot-cut style, wide and large at the bottom, and avoid using skinny jeans. Use of high heels will also disguise the length of your foot.

10 Styling Tips for Tall Women

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

If you’ve ever walked into a room, only to realize that: a) you easily tower over everyone including the men, and b) everyone else in the room seems to have noticed that fact, too, then you recognize that people take note of a tall woman. You may be tempted to dress quietly and conservatively to blend into the crowd, but who really wants to do that? Instead, make the most of the inevitable stares and “wow” them with the following styling tips:

2-BelleZeppa_副本

  1. Wear Beautiful Shoes
    As a tall woman, you’re probably familiar with what I’ve termed “The Six Foot Scan.” It’s the reaction other people have when they see your immense height and they have to check your feet immediately to determine whether you’re wearing heels. Fight the urge to yell, “Hey, there’s nothing to see down there!” by taking advantage of all the extra attention your feet receive. It doesn’t matter if you prefer heels, flats orathletic shoes, just choose beautiful shoes that deserve to be stared at.
  2. Don’t Fear Heels
    Heels seem to add confidence, sex and status to any outfit, and if 6’5″ former professional basketball player Lisa Leslie can rock the high heels, there’s no reason you shouldn’t, too.
  3. Use Oversized Accessories
    Don’t be afraid of carrying a giant bag or wearing thick arm bangles. Unlike your shorter friends, oversized accessories won’t make you look like you’re playing dress up with your mom’s clothes. Pair a thick belt with a shift dress or a big bag with a tank top and jeans. Just limit yourself to one oversized accessory per outfit in order to avoid looking clownish.
  4. Show Some Skin
    You’ve got a lot of skin on your long body, so you might as well use it to your advantage. The trick is to play it up without looking skanky. Focus on showing off one area at a time. For instance, if you wear a backless top, pair it with a longer skirt or jeans. This way you’ll grab attention without stopping hearts.
  5. Highlight Your Neck
    When getting ready for a night out, your long expanse of neck and your extra décolletage are assets you should highlight. Choose interesting necklines, pull your hair back, and wear necklaces or large earrings that attract the eye.
  6. Pair Narrow with Wide
    If you shy away from wide-legged pants or broad-shouldered jackets because you’re afraid that menswear will make you look, well, like a man, it’s time to revisit your thinking. If a runway model can pull off the look, then surely you can, too. To avoid looking “big,” just make sure you only wear one oversized item at a time. For a pulled-together look, wear wide-legged pants with a tight top, or pair an oversized jacket with skinny jeans.
  7. Think Bright
    Add a splash of color to your façade each day. Color adds interest to an outfit, and a woman wearing color exudes confidence. You don’t have to add much, just throw on a turquoise necklace with your brown jacket or wear red heels with your little black dress. Color can also draw attention to your favorite assets, so if you love your narrow waist, wear a bright belt.
  8. Be a Minimalist
    Avoid piling on everything from necklaces and belts to bracelets, hats and scarves. If you wear your height as an accessory, you don’t have to add much to your look. One or two simple pieces are all it will take to complete any outfit.
  9. Play With Your Hair
    When I was in high school I remember someone telling me that no tall girl should haveshort hair. The theory was that a short-haired-tall-girl would look too masculine. That’s a lie. There’s a reason why the contestants on America’s Next Top Model all undergo dramatic makeovers that include major changes to their hair-tall chicks can rock any look. Because hair grows back and can always be changed, enjoy experimenting and playing with different styles.
  10. Be a Drama Queen
    You may not want to play up the drama every day, but don’t shy away from the occasionally dramatic eyeliner or bright red lipstick. Tall women often feel self-conscious wearing trendy makeup because of the extra attention it draws. Even if you don’t think you could ever go out in public while wearing glitter eye shadow, get together with your girls and challenge yourself to try something new at least once a month.
