Short girl problems

Just scraping into the 5ft tall club often poses a few problems. I thought I'd share a few of them here. Leave me a little comment if you can relate to any of these!

1. Midi dresses are practically maxi dresses and high waisted jeans just about reach your armpits.

2. Ripped jeans are great, until you pull them on to find the rips sit halfway down your shins.

3. You have to be at least 5'4 to be a princess at Disney World. There goes that career move then.

4. The kick stools at work should just be surgically attached to you because EVERYTHING is too high.

5. Having to have the drivers seat pulled as far forward as possible just to reach the pedals.

6. Anything remotely 'oversized' looks like a potato sack on you.

7. Most kids in school uniform are taller and generally look older than you.

8. You almost drown in swimming pools expecting to touch the bottom, only to find that the bottom is still a few feet below.

9. Supermarkets become a game of rock climbing, especially to reach the boxes of cat food. That or spend 10 minutes hunting for an assistant to help.

10. Buying standing tickets for concerts is just pointless.

  1. I can definitely relate, being 4"11. Also, every pair of jeans have to be rolled up, I'm shorter than all my friends no matter how high the heels and in all group photos I look like a dwarf! :')

  2. This post is completely on point Lindsey! I feel you girl, being a shortie definitely has it's hilarious disadvantages! x

  3. Yes, totally agree with everything. I am only just about 5ft and a sneeze, and the struggle I have at the supermarket trying to get things down off the top shelf is a nightmare.
