There's no "too tall for everything on the shelf" option!
All of you ladies who are 5'8" and complaining, hush. You're only 2 inches above average.
I am 6 feet tall.
I am 6 inches taller than the average US female. And 2 inches taller than the average US male, so I have to look down at most of them.
I have a 34-inch inseam.
Therefore the arms, legs and body of just about every peice of clothing I try on is too short. Plus, I have a JLo butt, a relatively small waist and broad shoulders, but a flat chest. All of my "long"-sleeve shirts and jackets are more like 3/4 length, and I can't find dress pants ANYWHERE. Luckily I can wear jeans to work, and Gap is the only brand that even remotely fits my legs. If I can get a dress or skirt over my big ole booty, it's WAY too loose in the waist.
And for-freakin-get about high heels. lol Though I have one pair that puts me at 6'3.5". hehe It's a good thing my boyfriend is tall.

I was simply stating a personal observation. It is something I've noticed over the years... in my experience. And experience is different for everyone.
Personally, I believe ALL women should be happy with their body structure, no matter what the media (or men) dictates as being acceptable. And we are ALL beautiful in our own unique ways.
We are indeed.
