Mandy Your Questions About Ladies Shoes Size 13

Mandy asks…

I’m really tall and need ideas to feel more confident in myself.?

I just turned 13 and am already 5″9′ and very insecure in general. I’ve got very broad shoulders, a very long torso and short legs and very large feet which therefore make it hard to buy clothes. Most people would say ‘Oh be a model’ but I am not pretty enough and am very curvy, not slender at all. The boy I like is two years older than me and yet still I am taller than him. Any ideas to boost my self confidence?

Our pick of the answers:

I’ve been 5’10 since I was 14 (now I’m 19) and have size 10 feet, so I know how you feel! Hold yourself high; yeah, it makes you taller, but it also makes you look like you don’t give a damn that you’re taller. I wear high heels often, actually, to make the point that I am really freaking tall, and to hide my big feet with sweet shoes. If you have the long torso with some nice curves, try some sweater dresses; it’ll make your torso look more balanced with your legs. Maybe capris, because they will make your legs look longer. The answer before me has a good idea with flowy shirts; peasant shirts or 3/4 length sleeves are nice!
Tall girls are great, so don’t feel uncomfortable about it. It’ll be a huge advantage when you’re older, I promise. Also, offer to help people get things on tall shelves a lot, especially old ladies. It makes you feel great and makes other people think you’re an angel.
