Have you ever heard the saying, “The grass is always green on the other side?” Yes, it is amazing how true a phrase can be in all of its words. Especially with girls, they always crave less. But when it comes to short stature, there are a few issues that girls have to deal with.
They may not show up and hide, but they have to deal with everything that comes out every day. Wondering what they are? Well, if you are shorter than most of your friends or know someone like that, you will find the following things relatable-

Heels are your best friend
Whether you like them or not, you should wear them many times, especially with Indian clothes because without heels, you do not get the perfect look.
You cannot wear horizontal lines
Even if they are the latest fashions in the fashion market, they make you look shorter than you already are. Illusion, you know!
Burning clothes are no more
Or layered clothes and jumpsuits like that, because it not only makes you look shorter but also fatter!
Ankle anchor lengths make you look shorter
We know how bad you want to wear them, but we also know that whatever looks like one piece, lower your height even further!
Your shoe purchase debt is skyrocketing
Your heels should be of good quality and branded to make sure you can wear them comfortably throughout the day. You can not pick up items from street vendors! Oh, how you wish to know.
They travel all the time
All because of high heels or unchanged long dresses.
Poncho? What are ponchos?
Those pieces of stylish clothing look like Harry Potter costumes to you. We got you, girl!
A full-length skirt looks like a dream come true
Because they reach to the knees or the ankles. The idea of long skirts does not suit you
You need to change every new underwear
Whether you buy jeans, trousers or churidar, they are always very long for you!
No matter how much you lose weight, you still look a little overweight
Because that’s the kind of frame you’re born with, and unless you continue with a model diet plan, you can’t do much!
Long hair and you can not be friends in this life
If your hair is long, you look short. So, even though you crave longer hair, your shorter length does not allow you to have it!
Your tailor is the savior of your life
As clothes bought off the racks generally do not fit you well, you end up getting them altered by the tailor every time.
You are afraid of long sleeves
They always slide under your wrists making you feel like a little girl. Fold them and even worse. Try it and fix it and you will end up with some kind of condiment on them during dinner!
Jumpsuits do not go
Not only are the legs too long, but the crotch is in the wrong place. Unless it is the look of MC Hammer that you want, make it quite clear.
The same depends on the flares
Try taking a pair to make them the most appropriate length and your beautiful flares will quickly turn into an awesome cutting boot! We will still find a solution to this problem (unless we have learned to walk with sticks).
Here is a list of some fashionable clothes which short women can face problems while wearing-
Clam diggers, capris, pedal pushers, Bermuda shorts – whatever name you give them, they are not always the best bet for small legs. Trimmed pants or trousers can cut short legs in the middle, making the illusion that they are even shorter. Another type of cropped trousers that has come in handy is the harem pant. This style should also be avoided most of the time, too, if you are on the small side. They tend to create a negative effect on your nails rather than extend your figure.
The waist is down
A sloping silhouette in a dress or shirt is a surefire way to look short and fast. Contrary to popular belief, making your torso look longer does not help you look taller. However, it makes your legs look shorter. We have a simple rule for all your little PYTs, and it goes like this: two-thirds-one-thirds. You should describe your waist by two-thirds of the lower body and one-third of the upper body. So that means that for the final effect of stretching, choose clothes that sit on top of your natural waist, which means not a sloping waist.
We know you are a print-cess who loves to play well with the pattern. And we didn’t help to ruin the game. We just want to keep your checkers in the wrong checkbox. Large, bright prints like a stunning geometric image or very large flowers can envelop a little person and swallow them. And, as you probably already know, horizontal strokes are usually a no-no, either. They create a visual illusion of width where what you want is the length! At the end of the day, you want the world to look at you and not in those stripes and situations, after all.
Even if your middle name is bling, be careful when tying your next necklace. The bib-style statement and necklaces are aggressive, but wearing some of these knocking baubles around your neck can work against you. Why is that? However, the accessory separates the line between your décolletage and makes your neck look shorter as a result.
If you like big belts and can’t lie, we urge you to reconsider what you wear around your waist. The problem with this accessory is that it cuts your body in half. Therefore, if you are wearing a two- or three-inch thick belt, you will probably lose three inches of visual acuity to your frame.
Flexible, bulky statements and a multi-layered look maybe your may rite moments at times, but it’s best to stay on the side of the bodycon spectrum if you’re part of a shorter set. Too much fabric in the form of long, open tunics, languid shirt dresses, and very wide-leg pants will simply be too much for your small size. And, remember, the tops of the boxes keep their promises; they make you look boxy, especially if you are young.
Ankle-strap shoes visually separate the lower part of your legs, making them look shorter and firmer. Keep your ankles as long and lean as possible by skipping the belt and choosing a low-heeled shoe or sandals instead.
