    I am taller. It only really bothers me when I wear pumps because then I am WAY taller. When I wear flats I don’t even think about it.

    I’m shorter than he is and still a couple inches shorter in heels..I think it would bother me a little bit if I were taller in heels…but definitely wouldn’t want to be taller on our wedding day

    Well, I am 4″ taller in no shoes, so I pretty much don’t wear heels anymore. He doesn’t really mind, but it is a little weird being 6″ taller than your husband in public.

    I am taller than him in my high heels, but I wear them anyway and don’t care. But for the wedding I am getting very low heels (like under 2 inches). He specifically said he didn’t want our wedding pictures to look like Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, and neither did I!

    I’m shorter but with my 4 inch heels we’re the same height. Taller if I went higher. Doesn’t bother me. I don’t know, statuesque is an awesome thing. To me that’s worth being temporarily even or taller.

    In heels I am taller than my Fiance by a significant amount, but we are about the same height when I wear flats. I usually don’t mind it, Fiance never minds it, but for our wedding, my mom very much minds it and keeps nagging about me finding 3′ heels or less.

    He’s a couple inches taller than me so I’d be slightly taller than him if I wore heels. It’s not a big deal anyways because I was never one to wear heels much anyway. I’m more of a “flats” kinda girl.

    My SO is taller than me even if I wear stilettos, he’s about 5 inches taller. I enjoy being shorter than him but I don’t really care.

    An ex of mine was an inch shorter than me in flats. Since I don’t consider it dressing up unless I wear 3 high heels, it was most noticeable when we went out on dates. At first the double-take from strangers used to bother me. But once he told me that I was his “glamorous model girlfriend” (which is funny as I’m only 5’7 and probably 5’10 at most in heels). Suddenly, I changed my tune. I could view myself as a circus freak or I could imagine myself the next Gisele Bundchen.

    I chose the latter. Smile

    Im 5’5″ and he is about 5’8″ or 5’9″ I only wear short heels like around 3 inches when Im with him. The highest I would wear is 4 inches and his shoes have a little heel on him so we usually come to the same height. I dont like to be taller than him so I choose to usually wear something to where we are the same height or im shorter.

    5’10” to his 6′ and as long as I keep to kitten heels it doesn’t bother me. Being taller than him just looks stupid to me, though. We’re very similar heights/builds/body types, I don’t know if that affects it somehow.

    Darling Husband simply adores when my shoes make me taller than him.

    Fiance is 8 inches taller than me so… I’ve never been taller than him unless I stand on a chair. heels higher than 3″ hurts so I don’t ever even come close to his height! I guess it’s nice being so much ‘daintier’ than him, but really, I always envisioned my guy would be within 3″ of my height.

    “I’m shorter than him but taller in heels and I don’t care about looking taller in heels”

    Yep. I’m 2″ shorter than he is flat footed but I wear 4″-6″ heels when we go out. I don’t care that I look like an Amazon.

    I’m 5’2 and he’s 5’6, which I think is perfect.  He’s a stocky, muscular guy, so I always feel little and feminine.

    I don’t love being taller than him though: so he usually puts orthotics into his dress shoes when I wear heels.: and that’s our deal for our wedding day:

    I wear heels (he loves my posture in them), and he wear enough of a platform shoe that our 4″ height difference is maintained for our photos.
