    Tall women catch my attention because I am attracted to tall women, I have a weakness for long legs. I am 5’9” btw.

    Great thread ladies. I am 6'1" and I wear 4" heels...it has been said on here already, wear it like you own it. I weigh 175 with a 31 inch waist a dress to flatter my shape. I try to walk and move in a more feminine manner (which is a whole different stereotype conversation). Do I get made...i am sure I do but I am not dressing for anyone else. If my wife is good with how I look when we go out then all is well. Practice makes perfect...so I will keep practicing. Cheers.

    So far I think I am the tallest! topping out at 6'-7" add 2" heels and well, doors then become a problem for me! And by the way I do go out.

    I am 6 foot tall. I like wearing heels but they make me too tall and stand out in a crowd. But without the heels I find dressing less interesting. So I wear them anyway.

    I'll log in at the 6 foot mark. like to wear 4.5 inch heels when I can find them. I also like to wear hats, some tall and I do not remove my hat when inside but have to duck through doorways. The typical home doorway is 6'8" but they are starting to go to the 7' size. in the early 1900s it was 6' 3".

    5'9", here.

    Still on the taller side for a typical GG. But I was happy/lucky to be in that range, I guess.


    Back during my out-in-public totally-enfemme days, the highest heel I would go was a self-conscious 2.25", usually for a night on the town.

    Felt like I was pushing it even at that. So, eventually just dropped down to 1/4" flats when out & about, which made me feel a bit better psychologically. And despite not the greatest arch support, still somewhat easier on the feet.

    Of course, at the same time, I did, on some level, miss strutting in those empowering heels.


    Remember, even guys wearing typical guy-shoes have like a 1" to 1.5" "heel." So, they net out a bit more. Plenty of them seemed to tower over me!

    Still didn't matter, in my eyes. Even in flats I felt I was "too tall." And that was with GG's usually wearing some kind of heel.



    Whatever. Height isn't everything.

    Knew a CD'er who was like 5'4", no exaggeration. That little bitch!


    Didn't make a lick of difference. Could read them a mile away.

    I'm nearly 6 ft and have been out to plenty of places in three or four inch heels. It's more about your overall look fitting in, and about common sense - I wouldn't wear heels and short skirts to the supermarket where most women are in trainers or flats but at a night club where everyone else is dressed up it's fine, or even out and about in the town. My legs look so much better in heels so ain't gonna give 'em up!

    I am 6’ and wear heels out and about. I never had concerns of being taller than the average female, but then again I have absolutely no issues and shame with being noticed as someone belonging within the transgender umbrella (cd/trans/MIAD/whatever).

    You're right: At least in my case, I didn't want to be seen as part of the trans army. I wanted to be seen, accepted & treated as a GG!


    And that was *really* important to me back then. Short of hormones & surgery, I did everything I possibly could to help tip the scales in my favor, whenever possible. No stone was left unturned.

    Took a lot of time, effort, energy, knowledge, experience & money.


    Ultimately, I learned the hard way that it was an impossible & never-ending quest for what turned out to be fool's gold. Became this sort of unhealthy obsession. Definitely wasn't cool nor fun, by the later stages.



    These days, it's fortunately no longer important to me. I don't attempt to pass in any shape or form -- couldn't anymore even if I tried, LOL. I don't go out in public all dolled up. Heck, I don't even get *kinda* dolled up, save for once in a blue moon, behind closed doors!

    Took quite a while, but finally found my happy place, most typically as some variation of a MIAD, at best, whenever I feel the need.


    But back then? Yeah, there was definitely some sort of gnawing psychological need that had to be fulfilled, as best as humanly possible.

    Weird times, for sure. Not gonna try to stop anyone, but I don't really recommend it, either, if you can help it.

    As someone who is 6'3" this has certainly been something that has held me back from wanting to go out dressed en femme. I'm definitely nervous of how others will react to seeing such a tall girl. After reading some of these responses I guess it's just a feeling that I'll have to push past... definitely still scary though

    My "personal best" outing was a visit to the Metropolitan Museum by myself, dressed nicely, if I do say so myself. Now I am slightly above average male height, so about 6.5" above the average US female. Height is one feature about which I have worried when on excursions en femme. On this museum trip, as I walked up the many steps leading to the front entrance, I encountered a small group of women who towered over me. They were dressed nicely and probably were members of a women's basketball team. At that moment, I ceased worrying about my height.

    At 6'6" (barefooted) I don't have ANY shot at "passing", even in flats. So I reckon might as well go big and wear the heels!

    I’m 6’1” 180 lbs and wore 4 inch heels when dressed in Vegas and went to use the ladies room in a casino. In stumbles a fairly drunk but equally tall GG who looked at me and said “wow give it up for tall girls - it sucks being a tall girl... damn you’re rocking those heels! I wish I had the balls to wear my heels... f*** it next time I’m wearing my heels!”

    Moral of the story: it does kinda suck being a tall girl, but even tall girls get to wear their heels and look pretty.

    IMO, no one should avoid going out because he or she is too tall. Wilt Chamberlain, a 7'-1" NBA player, observed that people are fascinated by tall people.

    Many TG people would like to be in the 'average height' box, but we know issues from society's expectation about the gender box. Just be yourself, a statuesque TG individual, and go. BTW, I am 6'-7", occasionally wear wedges, and dress female casual and rarely receive any staring. Tall people are far more common today. So just enjoy the vertical enhancement.

    It sucks being short and fat too.
    I suppose we all have our times when we don't feel quite good enough to go out.

    I am 6'4 and a built more like linebacker than a runway model. Over 6'8 in heels. Have been to movies, shopping, en femme. Pretty scary as not passable but just tried to enjoy it. Always get "the look" but after awhile just dealt with it. Completely understand comment about hitting head in house as well. Area I live in is small so as wife knows but 100% against Teresa have to go over an hour away if want to dress.

    It's not just the height. Like Teresa above, I'm six foot four, and big. I resemble Shrek more than Belle when it comes to Disney characters. I don't even come close to resembling a GG in any way at all; I couldn't pass during a solar eclipse, with a power blackout, in a coal mine. Sure, RuPaul may be as tall as I am, but even he can manage a decent figure. Not me. Years of weight lifting nixed any chance of that. And while Serena Williams and Dot Jones are well, quite muscular as well, they're still definitely female, and I'm still definitely not.

    There's an addendum at post # 82 on that thread, too. It's about a ten minute read.
    Why don't we understand our desire to dress, behave and feel like a girl? Because from childhood, boys are told that the worst possible thing we can be, is a sissy. This feeling is so ingrained into our psyche, that we will suppress any thoughts that connect us to being or wanting to be feminine, even to the point of creating separate personalities to assign those female feelings into.

    I am six foot six, and single, and 65 years old now. Still would like to find a very tall single lady to befriend , date, and maybe marry, but, no success. I found the tall ladies marrying shorter men , or not interested in my. I dress up as the very tall, long legged lady i dream of, and am attracted with, though there are lovely women who are short, medium, and tall. i just wish there were more single tall ones in the small town region of the midwest, i live in!! NOT ONE! i am her, in the mirror. I have been out occasionally in the past, but not for a year and a half, not in these small towns!

    Side comment; If woman are getting bigger, why don't they start making more things we can get into, say size 12 or 14 shoes and extra long size 22 (or more) dresses? Maybe a new size chart for us, say 26WXT. that translates as size 26 Woman's eXtra Tall. Or shoe size 12W or even 12XW.

    Because the more material they use, the lower their profit margins are, so overall it's just better to shame women into feeling fat.

    In any event, it'll be a while before the average woman grows into a size that would also fit a man.
    If all else fails, lower your standards.

    My younger sister is just a hair under six feet tall, and it looks like my 15 year old niece got her mom’s height, as she is already taller than me.

    At 5’7”, I’m about average or slightly below for an American woman of European descent.

    I’m 6’1” and don’t see have an issue. Taller means longer legs to show off.

    I had a completely different thought

    According to femulate, Jessica Lange – model, actress – film, Tootsie, is 5'9

    Lange plays a female friend of an actress (Tootsie), who was impersonated by an out-of-work male actor, played by Dustin Hoffman.

    Dustin Hoffman is 5'6".

    Did you even notice that in the movie?
