    Too tall to go out?

    If you don't want to be seen out because of your height, check out this list of well known or famous tall females:

    Great... but irrelevant .

    I live in a university area, and when in male mode, I walk past multiple female students my height ( around 6' 1" ). The reason this is irrelevant is because many people, when they see such a woman, they would do a double take, study her other features, and conclude unequivocally that she is a woman. When they do the same process to me, I'd get read. Therein lies the difference.

    There is no comfort to be drawn from knowing there are tall women. We just need to stare down the barrel .

    Tall just gets you a more lingering look.

    Just accept it I feel.
    Work on your elegance,
    and beauty will follow.

    I agree 100%. Being out en femme as someone who is tall (6'-1") gets me a degree of added scrutiny that most can readily use to ascertain that I'm not a person who was FAB. I am always pleasantly surprised on those rare occasions in which I am assumed to be a GG, but I operate under the assumption that everyone knows the deal when I am out and about.

    I'm too tall to stay in sometimes. I often bang my head on the door frames especially in heels.

    Jenny,
    I count my blessings being shortish at 5' 7" . While you think tall ones may struggle maybe also spare a thought for the short ones . I spent a whole morning in an out of town store going through the racks . The store has specials for coach trips and I followed a group of them round, the converstion was hillarious at times . They started choosing things for me and I started picking out for some of them . I picked out a lovely dress out and remarked to a lady next to me , she said , " It's fine for you being tall , but where do you think it's going to end up on me at 4' 11" ? ". That poor lady picked out dress after dress and had a problem with most of them , even the petitte's section didn't help .
    The real me ,no going back.

    At just over 5 foot nine I am not unusually tall for a man or even a woman. However the women (FAB) that I socialise and shop with are all quite short and/or petite and I stand out as a giant next to them, which draws attention to me. I just assume that people realise I am male anyway, I wear heels, and just go for it. I as long as I am perceived as making a good job of my appearance and movements I am happy.

    I think the way you move is more important than being short. The visual cues of the way you walk will make a much bigger tell than being over 6'. I am 6'1", wear heels, and go out without experiencing attack of the 50' woman. Remember keep those knees together (its not just for your chastity) and elbows in and walk like a woman. I will say that in South Mississippi 6' is pretty normal.

    I am tall. I was out last week dressed in a pencil skirt, blouse and stylish winter jacket. I also had sensible 3" patent pumps w/sheer pantyhose.
    I ran into someone on the street and I could see that see was definitely sizing me up...So I smiled. She smiled back and said "Wow! You are tall!!"
    I said "Thank you, but more importantly, how do I look?"
    She responded "You look cute, really cute"!
    We both smiled and I wished her a great day!

    I agree 100% with you Kimberly Jean. I'm 5' 10" and I don't let my height dictate how high my heels are when I go out.

    Peta Wilson or Lynda Carter never let being tall embarrass them--They embraced it, often wore clothing that emphasized it, and looked FANTASTIC. A good looking CD who is tall WILL attract attention, but often for the "Right" reasons. Your gender may not be under question as much as you might think.

    And, how much do those women on the list weigh? Weight is not the only part of the equation. I'm six foot even and weight 195 lbs. Decades ago I was 6' 1 1/2" and as little as 138 pounds before I gained weight. My best weight for feeling toned was 175 lbs and a waist of 30-32 inches. Skin was smooth and unblemished. Now? Age has taken its toll. Taking strolls among the masses would be out of my comfort zone which is one of the reasons why I wear women's clothing to begin with. There are college coeds around here and when the women's visiting basketball team is out at the mall there is a group of very tall women. Yes, they do attract attention. For the most part there is no mistaking they are women. The mind's eye with years of recording information will "make" a tall cross dresser. Height is a lightning rod for attracting attention.

    I'm tall myself. It can be extremely difficult when you don't want to draw additional attention to yourself yet everyone is noticing your height. You have to push past it because it gets better. You can't shrink away from it it looks worse. You have to own it kind of like a runway model and not care when people look. Not saying it's easy but it is manageable. Best of luck to you.

    Femulate? Where did that word come from? I can see the mash up, but when did it get started?

    I worry not one whit about my height. I am 6ft2 in bare feet, but who goes out in bare feet? My heels are often in the 3 1/2 to 4 inch range, so I rise to height of almost 6ft6 when I'm dressed. I'm not the type who craves attention, so I don't do it to get noticed. But I'd be stupid to think I don't get noticed, maybe even closely scrutinized. So I must carry myself as well and as proudly as I can. Genifer is spot on when she says you have to own it. Walk with your head held high as if you belong where you are. Because YOU DO!

    I'm 6'3", and don't go out in my town, but I regularly go out when on trips out of town. I'm sure I get read, but it doesn't matter. None of their business what I choose to wear.

    What a bunch of shorties. I'm 6'6" in bare feet and wear 3" heels when I go out. I've ditched the skirts for leggings and skinny jeans to blend in a little and not draw quite as much attention to mineself.

    I'm 6'2", and realize I'm taller than most women. Add two inch heels I'm 6'4". I have no issue going out. I know plenty of women my height. I have a daughter who is 5'11" My good friend's SO is 6'1". It's not going to keep me in.
    Please call me Jamie, I always_have crossdressed, I always will, "alwayshave".

    I guess I should not be afraid of wearing pumps, I generally wear flats. At 5' 8" I always thought I was too tall to be seen in heals, maybe not...

    I’m 6’ and slim, always in heels. Clothes hang beautifully on a tall frame, to me it’s a plus. Buying dresses that fit is trickier (no waist seam, “midi length” ends up as knee length). Long legs, long torso - what’s not to love?

    Attention grabbing? Yes. But can’t fix it nor do I want to! My GG friend is a half inch taller than me, when we go out together we own the city!

    I"m from tall stock. My youngest sister is 5ft 12ins. Never 6 ft. My daughter is 5ft 10 and honestly I think she wishes she was a little shorter. Me I am 6ft 4ins, broad shoulders hands the size of shovels and size 14 extra wide feet. I stuggle to find male shoes that fit properly. Say what you like about tall celebrateties folk of my build get read in an instant. So I have returned to the closet and have zero plans to push myself on society again. Horses for courses, as they say. Except who you are and simply enjoy life.

    I first ran across the term in Stana's Blog which I check daily. Fun/interesting read. If you do a google search I'm sure you'll find it.
