Does your height hold you back from presenting your fab femme self to the world?
It shouldn’t. In fact, I say embrace your height, girlfriend!
While it’s true that many crossdressers and transgender women are taller than the “average” female, who cares?
Tall women are HOT!
But if your goal is to downplay your height, there are some simple techniques you can use.
Here are 4 easy ways to look shorter:
1. Don’t Slouch
Slouching isn’t attractive – and it only draws attention to the fact that you’re not proud of your height.
Resist the urge to slouch. Instead, stand tall! You’ll come across as confident and self-assured.
2. Wear the Right Shoes
You should obviously stay away from high heels if you want to look shorter. But that doesn’t mean you have to live in flats!
Look for shoes with a chic kitten heel. A low heel adds elegance to your look without a big increase in height.
Shoes can also make your legs and feet appear shorter:
- Choose shoes with rounded toes instead of pointy ones to make your feet look shorter.
- Wear shoes with straps over the instep or ankle. This helps break up the long line of your legs.
3. Dress to Downplay Your Height
The clothes you wear have a huge impact on your overall appearance. Here are 5 dos and don’ts for downplaying your height:
- DO choose full skirts and dresses to draw the eye horizontally instead of vertically. (More width = less height.)
- DON’T wear super tight clothes. (Less width = more height.)
- DO wear a different color top and bottom to visually break up your figure.
- DON’T wear monochromatic outfits; this makes you look even taller.
- DO wear a contrasting belt to interrupt the eye from going straight up and down a long torso.
4. Choose the Right Hairstyle
The last thing to consider is your hair. The wrong style can make you look even taller, so here are 3 suggestions for avoiding unnecessary height:
- Avoid hairstyles with a lot of volume at the crown as this literally adds inches to your stature.
- Avoid wearing your hair too long since this tends to make you look even taller. Generally speaking, shoulder length hair is most flattering.
- Try a layered or wavy hairstyle with volume along the sides of the face. (Again, think horizontally instead of vertically.)
Yes, it’s true that you might be taller than the average woman. But don’t forget about the sexy, tall women out there who are revered for their long legs and height!

I am a staggering 204cm tall and 22 years old, but still wear pumps and heeled boots on a daily basis. They make me feel like a complete woman when I am wearing them, not to mention the toning that they do for my calf muscles that could do with a lot more toning. Besides, they form part of my EN FEMME Staples in my ever updating wardrobe.
Wow Jessica, now that is tall. I’m 190 and abt 90 Kg(196lb). Still closeted due not feeling I could blend due to my height and masculine features like broad shoulders, fat bulging tummy and facial shape. It’s not going to stop me trying though and I’m seriously thinking about gettin Locille’s breast dev programme.
Best wishes to you Jessica and to all you ladies on here.
P.S. Lets keep safe out there.
What happened to be yourself. I’ve be going out a number of years as an carrer type woman, nothing flashy and I’ve had very few problems. I’m tall and heavy set and I just blend in with the crowd.
I agree, Mariam. “Be yourself” is the best advice!
BTW, did you notice that none of the 6 foot tall (or taller) ladies in my poll are doing anything to downplay their height? They are all wearing heels and slinky dresses that emphasize their height! Whether you want to use my tips to downplay your height – or do the opposite to play it up – is your choice. But regardless, “be yourself!” 😉
here’s a thought. ever notice that most runway models are 5’10” and over. I always thought that ODD! considering the AVG woman’s height. Ive commented about height 6 2 being a major disadvantage in crowds yet I believe I pass well standing by my self. what I complained about out say At the malll, is being tall is some thing that makes me stand out from the rest, so people automatically will look and scrutinize more. a shorter person will not get that attention getting 1st look that more use in crowds. I’m guilty of it. just zipping down walkways not really paying attention to those around me till something about a person stands out from the normal. Here in Oregon, if you was @ the mall and a woman was in heels, she’d get more attn/scruitiny than a mall in New York, only because most women here avoid wearing heels unless they believe the have to. My time other areas of country seems to reflect this also.
It’s my first time here…i am new to Lucie,s site, but i really love it, it’s full of sincere, usable advice. Thank You so much Lucie, for sharing all this with us…
i have always been a woman, yet i have not yet (at 45) dared to go out in daylight…shame on me…?
i am 5’11 and i love being a tall woman. My shoes are a size 11, i guess i wish i was a 10. For hands i took to wearing light gloves. either black satin gloves, or sheer ones…
They work with the dressier clothes i favour. i think they
would help…has anyone tried…?
i am going to order the voice training cd’s. That would make such a huge difference in confidence.
i have received the breast develpment program. i have no doubt it works, now. Just need some time to plan introducing my new figure so it remains discreet when i need it to:)

Hi Lucille … I’m six foot an I love my height … Do you have any tips … Making my nose seem smaller!
Thanks JoAnne :<)
Thanks again Lucille!
Hands, Feet and Arms — you should not worry about the size but take the time to soften yourself. Soft arms and hands make you much more attractive and your femininity will be more woman like. Please use cream three or more times a day and yes, hormones and herbs help soften your features as a woman — lol Jimmy
