Tall women.. Do you ever look at cute LONG SLEEVED shirts, go to try it on, and it doesn't even touch your wrist?

That's one of the things that fries me.

Name: Erica
Age: 23
Height: 5'8"
Clothes: I have been on an online kick for awhile, so I've been checking out urbanoutfitter, forever 21, and DSW. I used to be able to buy clothes at Hollister, but not anymore. The jeans might fit in the waist, but their longs aren't long enough. I usually order my shoes online becuause my shoe size is now an 11 (9 UK), and they never seem to go past 9 in the stores for some odd reason.
Best Thing About Being Tall: Well, I was 5'7" when I was 10, teased all the time. Called the "Jolly Green Giant," and "Sasquatch." I hated being tall when I was young. The only good thing I think is being told I should model, and being able to hug my short friends and accuse them of trying to motor boat me (tehe).


I used to get called Jolly Green Giant as well. Never Sasquatch. When I was older I wanted to get a green car and get plates that said JolyGrn

That would've been awesome. I still cringe a bit when I open a can of green beans and see the Giant on the can..
I got called Jolly Green Giant too. :c
I honestly just don't bother with long sleeves. My arms are longer than average for my HEIGHT, and not just because I'm 5'9"
Short pants bother me more than short long sleeves, mainly because I find sleeves that go past my wrists annoying.

I was teased in regards to my height by one guy when I was younger, but I think that's because he liked me, really. (He would walk on his tippy toes, which was sorta funny, b/c he was not really short, either.) I got more grief over my first name than my height, though.
I've had good luck with some of the Lands End clothes with length in the arms.
Much of their stuff is unisex also which is great.
