Are Tall Girls Attractive?

Yes, tall girls are without a doubt attractive which is one of the reasons they are sought out as models. And though there are studies that counter this statement by saying that men prefer shorter women, there are plenty of men out there that prefer tall women too. Infact most of the studies come to the conclusion that women like their partners to be a bit taller then and, men like there women to be shorter than them. This leads many people to conclude that taller women are not perceived as attractive, but this is not entirely the case. As usually men just prefer women that are shorter then even though, they are tall when compared to the average.

Moreover, many of the men who have a preference for shorter women tend to do so because they don’t want to look to tedious and too out of their league in a relationship. And hence they don’t want to be dominated by the presence of their other half. Abigail Witzman when addressing this goes on to say ““There seems to be an almost universal agreement among men and women that they would prefer to be in a relationship where the man is taller,”

Another very interesting thing about this very study is that in it, it was concluded that taller men are more likely to be in eligatarian relationships with their partners. This means that usually, they don’t mind doing their homework and other things and mostly end up marrying more educated women, whereas it was found in this study that shorter men tend to be in relationships which mirrors the conventional power dynamics of men and women, which means that they are less likely to involve themselves with housework, and associate themselves more as the breadwinner and their partners as the ones running the house, Wintzman says the following about the results from this experiment. ” Our findings portray a pattern in which short men compensate for their status disadvantage by enacting other types of stereotypical masculinity, “

An Informal Survey By A Youtuber


Beautiful tall girls are the epitome of fashion, in fact, the whole fashion industry rolls over this very idea. Most of the models are heighted women, this is not only because their height sets them apart from the crowd but clothes seem more elegant and clothes fall and drape in a more natural way when it comes to tall women. Moving on this very point, the British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that optimally female models should have aheight of  5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall. This also stands to side with the point that height is viewed as a sign of attractiveness.

Moreover, it is not odd for people to ask tall, decent looking women if they are supermodels, just because of their heights.

Some Other Studies

A study conducted by Gillis and Avis in the late 90s found from every 100 couples, there are only 2 couples on average who are likely to have taller women than the man in the relationship. This does stand with the point that men tend to prefer their life partners who are shorter to them in size, as they do need to know subconsciously that they are to some extent the dominant one in the relationship, even if this isn’t the case actually.

It is often argued on the reference of this study that men have no height preference then simply one, and that is dating women who are at least in some capacity shorter than them. One more important thing to note at this point is that the preference of women on taller men is way more staunch then of men with shorter women as we just said.

here is a look at some other studies and what they concluded

“We found that shorter, slimmer females with long slender legs, a curvy figure and larger breasts are more attractive,” said lead researcher Dr William Brown of Brunel University.
