Being Tall vs. Being Short
Short and tall women alike experience many advantages based on their height. It is impossible to say which is better. We may not always have control over how we perceive a person's height. There are biological features that make a person more attractive, such as child-bearing hips in women and broad shoulders in men. From an evolutionary standpoint, the primary objective for most living creatures is to reproduce. Naturally, we are drawn to features that make a woman seem more capable of reproduction. Here are some biological, social, and psychological aspects that make tall and short women more attractive to men.
What Makes Tall Women Attractive?
Of course, a tall woman is easier to see than a short one. Her height may make her more noticeable to the opposite sex. It may make socializing easier for women who are more visible in a large crowd.
One study shows that men and women view taller women as more independent, assertive, and ambitious. Many individuals also assume that taller women are wealthier and more successful.
Scientifically speaking, just as taller men seem to be better providers or protectors, taller women are considered stronger. The body uses more energy to grow taller equating to more strength. This fact may also give taller women a sense of self-reliance.
Taller women may also appear more athletic than shorter women. Taller women have longer legs to run further while using less energy. Individuals who are more athletic seem to be more attractive to members of the opposite sex.
Last but not least, society has painted tall, thin models as the “ideal” image of femininity. Thanks to modern fashion practices, women with long legs and slender figures set the standard of what makes a woman more attractive. In fact, women worldwide have been walking around in high heels to imitate this “ideal” image of what a woman should look like.
What Makes Short Women Attractive?
While tall women seem to have it all, short women pack a few surprises of their own. Researchers found that men judged shorter women to have a more nurturing demeanor. According to a few studies, men find shorter women more considerate and homely.
On a biological note, being shorter makes women seem more fertile since it makes an hourglass figure more prominent. Shorter women also appear healthier, more flirtatious, and even more fertile. These features make her more suitable for reproduction.
If we look at it from a social angle, men may prefer shorter women because it makes them feel needed as a source of protection. A short female partner may make a man feel more masculine and boost their ego. This aspect may be more relatable to shorter men who prefer a woman of a similar height.
Are Taller Women More Successful?
As you can see, short and tall women are attractive and superior in different ways. These assumptions stem from first impressions but don't last long since they are superficial assumptions. However, studies suggest that taller women are more successful in life. How can this be true?
You may be surprised to know that height can influence a person's success. Many studies have a reoccurring trend of taller women earning higher salaries. They also found that taller women were more successful with finding a partner through online dating. Why are taller women more successful?
Naturally, taller women possess a more authoritative stature since they look physically down on shorter women. On average, men are taller than women. The average height for men is about 5 feet 9 inches, whereas women have an average height of 5 feet 4 inches. This means that taller women are more likely to meet the average man at eye level, making them seem stronger. In fact, taller women are more likely to receive a promotion and reach the rank of CEO than shorter women.
Are Shorter Women Less Confident?
Shorter women are more likely to suffer from low self-esteem, which makes them less likely to hold a management title in the workplace. Shorter women have reported a feeling of inferiority due to their height.
Women with below-average height also feel more paranoid since it is easier to get lost in a crowd. People often make fun of shorter women, which further increases their sense of paranoia. Shorter women also feel more vulnerable and less powerful since height is associated with strength and fitness.
Being short may also affect their confidence as they don't measure up to the “ideal” image that models advertise. Fashion designers tend to make clothes with taller women in mind. Shorter women are often disappointed when clothes don't look the same on them as they did on taller models.

Here at Height Lengthening, we offer a surgical procedure that helps you boost your confidence. Dr. Shahab Mahboubian can help you put your height insecurities behind you with this remarkable surgical procedure.
How Does Height Lengthening Work?
During height lengthening surgery, Dr. Mahboubian cuts into your femur (thigh bone) or tibia (shin bone) and inserts a device that gradually increases the space between the bones. Over time, as your body heals, connective tissue and blood vessels gather between the bone and harden. Once they harden, your body will form new bones, and you will be taller, permanently! This process may take a few months, but it is worth the wait. Height lengthening surgery has changed many lives for the better. After about three months of healing, you can be 8cm (or 3.1 inches) taller from a single procedure!
