How to Appear Shorter

how to appear shorter

Lately, I have come across many online articles on ways to appear shorter. I personally don’t get it. Why not just accentuate the positive? But, for those of you tall people desperate to look shorter, here are my top 10 humorous suggestions that I found online of ways to make yourself appear shorter. Enjoy!


10. Mix light and dark shades. Pairing a dark shirt with light pants, or vice verse, will shorten your body. Avoid short shorts at all costs!

9. If you wear shirts that have stripes, wear them horizontally. Instead of looking taller, you will look more fat.

8. Kneel and strap your shoes to your knees. It’s a bit difficult to walk, but you will definitely look shorter.

7. Have Chuck Norris roundhouse kick your legs. You’ll lose like 6 inches off em.

6. Hmmm, maybe try hanging out with pro basketball players, they’ll make us look downright petite.

5. You might try looking in a trick mirror, bending your knees, trimming the bottoms of your feet, wearing horizontal striped shirts, or being persistent at sitting down.

4. To appear shorter, lower your pants down your waist so that they appear baggy around your ankles. Wear a long coat and let it hang open so that you seem less vertical. Carry bulky accessories and slouch your shoulders in.

3. A slouched stance will make you look shorter, not to mention insecure.

2. Make your surroundings bigger so you seem smaller. Buy large furniture, tall counter tops, use wide doorways, drive a truck and not a little car.

1. Just sit down.

Funny Tall Story

Today I went grocery shopping. The local store is being remodeled and so some of the isles are pretty tight together. I bribed my two year old with a balloon so he would be good while shopping. When he chose his balloon it was between “Pirates of the Carribbean” or “Barbie”. We went with Pirates. Unbeknownest to me, the balloon plays music and plays it loud. As we got to the end of a skinny food isle, right as we were turning the corner the balloon music came on in it’s glory. At the same moment, a little old woman was also turning the corner. She saw me, in my 6’1″ intimidating size and the balloon blaring and she literally jumped a foot. The look on her face was sheer horror. I felt kind of bad, but what do you do? I have been laughing ever since. It’s not often you run into a woman as tall as me in my small town and have a balloon blare at you in your face. Poor lady. Are tall women intimidating? Yes, but at times it adds some humor to all of our lives.
