I’m sure you look great 🙂

No one likes what they have- or at least, most people wish they looked different sometimes.  I know tall girls who want nothing more than to be petite. 

FWIW, you aren’t alone!  I’m kind of wishing I was that tall and thin, too.  But then, I’d actually be taller than my FH and neither of us would like that either.

You’re being silly! stupid.  I’m Asian, so I know a lot of people that are just around 5′ and they can pull off an elegant look whenever the situation called for it.

I totally hear you on the body insecurities though.  I’m 5’4 and weighed in at under 120 at my docs appt yesterday, so I guess I’m fairly thin, but have never liked my body enough to dare wear a bikini… ever, until FI refused to “let me” go to the beach in a granny swimsuit on a vacation.  So I finally sucked it up, and did it for him.  That was a tough day.

I understand completely!  I am 5’1″ and average weight.  I always get “cute” before “beautiful” or “glamourous.”  Eh, what can we do?

I always wished I was taller too! Seeing tall, thin women always makes me a little jealous. They always do seem more graceful. That’s okay though, I’m sure gracefulness really comes from inside–it just seems like having longer legs makes it easier haha.

I wish I were taller too. I’m 5’3″ and a little overweight.

I’m tall (almost 5’9) and always wished I was shorter.  I hate towering over people.

@MissIntent: I’ll take a couple inches from you.

I’m 5’6 and I always feel too tall or too short. Also, I will never be thin enough.

I feel you. I’m 5’2” and will never ever have Kate’s body. But who does, anyways? Even if you’re tall and slender, you probably still don’t carry yourself like she does. Right?

@FutureMrsMcDermott: We just all need to have pride in who we are and know that we’re strong and beautiful!
