Petite Girl Probs.

It's no secret that if anyone asks me how tall I am, my response tends to be, 'not very', because at only just pushing 5'1, there's no real other answer I can give. While there are a few advantages to having not grown since I was about 12, such as always being able to wear heels no matter who you're with, getting your clothes cheaper by being able to fit into kids sizes, and having the most leg room on planes, most of the time it's just a plain pain in the bum.

So just incase you're one of the taller people in the world, or if you're a fellow shorty, here are 15 problems that us petite lot have to deal with on a daily basis.

  1. If like us, you keep the dishes on the top shelf... having to climb on a chair just to have some cereal. Or in fact, having to climb on a chair to reach the top shelf of anything.
  2. Not being able to see a thing in a large crowd.
  3. You're ALWAYS being ushered to the front of group photographs. Why can't I just hide at the back like everyone else!?
  4. Buying trousers is an absolute NIGHTMARE. If you can find a pair that don't scrunch up at the bottom then you're keeping these for life. Ankle grazers just don't exist for us.
  5. ...Oh and that midi might as well just be a maxi. Just forget about maxi's altogether.
  6. Not being able to quite see through the peephole in your flat.
  7. You just can't gracefully climb onto a bar stool. How great would be to just be able to perch on those things like everyone else!
  8. Those overhead hand rails on trains and buses would be a great idea... if you could actually reach them. On the plus side, your core strength is fab from having to keep yourself upright!
  9. People like to pat you on the head or use your shoulder as an armrest.
  10. Having to fully adjust the drivers seat... and then still not being able to quite fully see everything over the dash board.
  11. You get really good at treading water because the chances are you can't reach the bottom of the pool.
  12. Those bathroom mirrors that are dead high up above the sink. Unless you just want to see your top knot, there's no point even trying to see what you look like.
  13. Yes, I am fully aware I'm a little smaller than others. There is no need to point out the obvious. ALL. the. time.
  14. Having to hope and pray that no one sits in front of you at the theatre/cinema/concert. Because as lovely as your head is Mr Tall Person, I did not pay to stare at it for 2 hours.
  15. You look up to everyone. Literally.

    1. Hahaha Lou! Might be able to let you off ;) xxx

  9. Number #7 seriously happened to me yesterday in a restaurant. I was even a n00b and put my bag on the floor, so I couldn't pick it up off floor without getting off the seat when we had to pay the bill...and I then I had to get on the bloody seat again. Urghhh #smallpeopleproblems Xx

    1. Hahaha oh my goodness, yes! This is always such a struggle! xx

  10. Haha such a great read! I am not petite but I do have short legs so I can totally relate to some of these, including how hard it is to find trousers that fit!! I always end up with a scrunched up bit around my ankles!

    1. Ugh, it's such a nightmare isn't it! haha glad you liked it Sarah :) xxx

  11. Yep, definitely agree with some of these! I mean, I'm 5'3 so not 'short-short', but definitely not tall either xD Being pushed to the front of group photos is my nightmare.
