I. Tips to grow taller for you!
Dresses for the Short and Tiny.
Women tend to be insecure about their height. Shorter women
sometimes find their height disappointing and often look for ways to
appear taller. With most women this simply means a new pair of
pumps or high heals. But with a little fashion sense and the right
dresses for the short and tiny woman, she can look taller in the right
dress—pumps or heels optional.
10 Ways to Dress to Look Taller and Slimmer
There are fashion-savvy people who know the tricks to clothes styles
that make them appear taller. These fashion-wise individuals have
loads of tips on how to dress to look taller and slimmer. But before
you run out and buy a new wardrobe, you should check out these cool
style ideas to help you to dress and look taller.
Focus on Your Posture
Posture is a key component to focus on if you want to appear taller.

visually appear to be only 5’1”. Simply practicing good posture can help
you achieve your maximum height and look taller in your clothes. By
keeping your mind on sitting or standing with your back straightly
aligned with shoulders slightly back, you can correct poor posture and
you won't look so short or tiny in that dress.
Sport a Great Hairstyle
Hairstyles can also give you the apppearance of lookng taller. If you
have long, flowing hair that trails down your back, adjusting your cut
and style can make you look taller and less petite. Longer hair tends to
hide your neck. This causes the illusion that your head and body are
connected directly, making you appear shorter. Getting a haircut that
is chin length or shorter and maintaining a hairstyle that reveals your
neck will give you the illusion of looking taller.
Watch Your Body Weight
Since a leaner body tends to look an inch or two taller, watching your
body weight isn't just a healthy idea; it can make you look taller. When
you are heavy and short, the focus is not on your height but your width.
The shorter you are with more weight, the rounder you appear and the
more difficult it is to dress as a short or tiny person.
When shopping for outfits, stay away from checkered, plaid and
horizontal-striped patterns. Along with polka dots, these patterns
make you look cut off and shorter than you actually are. Vertical strips
such as a pinstripe, chalk strip or herringbone will work best to give you

an elongated look. Abstract patterns that incorporate diagonals and
vertical lines can stretch you out and are also flattering.
Choose Torso-Flattering Clothing
When you coordinate with two or more colors cut at the waist, you
tend to point out your lack of height. Because you wear belts and other
accessories, you show your torso and lower body proportions, which
can make you look shorter. Solid-colored outfits tend to create the
illusion of being taller, because you can’t visually point out where your
Dress in Darker Colors
If you want to accentuate your height, choose flattering colors that will
make you look taller. Light colors and pastels, pinks, blues and greens
won’t so sharply accentuate your height. Whites, tans and grays can
give you a taller appearance in your clothes when worn as a monotone
outfit. Dark colors that are well matched: blacks, dark blues, browns
and grays create both a slimming and taller look for a shorter or more
7. Avoid Heavy Fabrics
Avoid wearing heavy fabrics like wool, heavy denims and tweeds.
Heavy fabrics make you look shorter and dumpy and less smoothed
out. More lightweight and body skimming, not hugging, fabrics like
cotton, linen, polyester blends and light denims are ideal fabrics for
dressing the short or tiny woman. The good part about fabric weight is
that you be a little creative by wearing heavier fabrics in dark, solid

8. Wear Moderately Tight Clothing
Finally, make sure you avoid wearing extremely loose or baggy
clothing—something more body skimming is taller. Don’t cut off your
circulation to look like a stuffed sausage; moderately tight clothing is
ideal. Avoid capris and canvas shorts as they make you look cut off.
Wear skirts either above the knee or three inches below the knee,
never wear skirts or dresses to the knee or ankles this makes you look
shorter. Whenever possible, have your clothes tailored to fit properly
but with a little room to modify if needed.
9. Sport a Nice Pair of Heels!
Choosing the right shoe style is very important when dressing to look
taller. Ladies, heels and pumps are ideal to give you a little boost in
height. Thick-soled shoes and sandals are ideal for more comfortable
fitting shoes that make you look taller. For guys, thicker soles for dress
and some tennis shoes helps increase height. Avoid wearing flats or
shoes with low or no soles.
10. Don't Forget, Alter Your Clothes
Shorter people should wear longer coats that end slightly below the
knees. Longer coats will give you the appearance of being taller. While
long, slim pants are ideal for a taller look, make sure you have your
pants hemmed to an appropriate length, neither dragging on the shoe
or hovering above the ankles and never use outward cuffs.
Once you make a few postural adjustments to maximize your actual
height, you will also gain extra confidence and keep up your physical

short and tiny woman which will make you look taller.

Method 1 : To Become Taller
1.Consume a balanced diet. A person will look a lot shorter when
having a plump body. Not only that, being fit by eating right will
make you taller and feel better!
o Eat plenty of lean protein. Lean protein, such as white
poultry meat, fish, soy, and dairy, helps promote muscle
growth and healthy bones. Simple carbohydrates such as
pizza, cakes, sweets, and soda, are the stuff to stay away
Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 6
o Eat plenty of calcium. Calcium, found in leafy green
vegetables such as spinach and kale, and in dairy (yogurt and
milk), helps promote healthy bones.
o Get enough zinc. Studies, although they have been
inconclusive so far, point to a possible link between zinc
deficiencies and stunted growth in boys. Good sources of
zinc include oysters, wheat germ, pumpkin and squash
seeds, lamb, peanuts, and crab.
o Get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D promotes bone and muscle
growth in children, and a deficiency has been shown to
stunt growth and cause weight gain in teenage girls.
Vitamin D can be found in fish, alfalfa, or mushrooms

Exercise throughout the teen years and in puberty to improve
your height modestly. Do jumping exercises frequently, such as
skipping, dancing and even hanging . Be active. Get out and about
and work your muscles for at least 30 minutes each day.
o Join a gym. Joining a gym will help give you access to a lot of
great exercising and muscle-building machines. It will also
keep you motivated to work out (you'll feel silly if you're not
exercising in the gym).
o Join a sports team. People who join sports teams can use
their natural competitiveness to burn extra calories and
hopefully get their bodies taller. The great thing about team

sports is that half the time, you don't even realize that
o If nothing else, walk around. If you can't find the time to do
anything else, get up and walk around. Walk to the grocery
store. Walk to the library. Walk to school.
Get adequate sleep each night. Sleeping is the time when your
body grows, so having plenty of sleep is equivalent to giving your
body more time for growth. Get between 9 and 11 hours of sleep
per night if you're a preteen or still younger than 20.

o The human growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally in
our bodies, especially during deep or slow wave sleep.
Getting good, sound sleep will encourage the production of
HGH, which is created in the pituitary gland.
Understand that a majority of your height will be predetermined
by genetics. Scientists reckon that 60% to 80% of your height is
determined by genes. Unfortunately, either you have the tall
gene or you don't. That's not to say that you can't grow tall if you
have parents who are on the shorter side; it just means that

having shorter parents means you're more likely to be on the
5 Try not to stunt your growth. There might not be a lot you can
do to increase your height, but you can take several steps to make
sure your natural height isn't shortened by environmental
influences. Drugs and alcohol are both thought to contribute to
stunted growth if they're ingested while you're young, and
malnutrition can keep you from reaching your full height, as well.
o Does caffeine really stunt your growth? Scientific study
shows that, no, caffeine does not stunt growth. Caffeine
Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 11
does, however, have a higher chance of keeping you from
sleeping soundly and regularly. Kids and adolescents needs
about 9-10 hours of sleep, and caffeine may hurt your ability
to get that much sleep.
o Does smoking really stunt your growth? The effects of
smoking and second-hand smoke on body mass index (BMI)
are inconclusive. According to Columbia University's Internet
Health Resource, "Although the studies that have been done
are largely inconclusive, the available research suggests that
children who smoke or who are exposed to second-hand
smoke are shorter than those who do not smoke or are
children of non-smokers."
o Do steroids really stunt your growth? Absolutely. Anabolic
steroids inhibit bone growth in young children and teens,
along with lowering sperm count, decreasing breast size,
elevating blood pressure and putting you at higher risk of
heart attack. Children and teens who suffer from asthma
and use inhalers that dispense small doses of the steroid
budesonide are, on average, half an inch shorter than those
not treated with steroids.
6. Expect to be in your twenties when you stop growing. A lot of
young kids look at themselves and ask, "Have I finished growing
yet?" If you're under 18, the answer is probably "No!" If you
haven't stopped puberty yet, then you haven't stopped
growing. Try to be thankful that you have a little time to grow
taller instead of worrying about how tall you will be.
