Why do models have to be so tall?


Why do models have to be so tall?

We can see women who are short as well as tall being beautiful and attractive. Short women tend to act smart as they are not tall and try to impress other people by their smartness. But, there are many short women who were successful and happier in their lives. Models are especially chosen to be tall as it is the dream of every one to be tall in order to look beautiful. Every one irrespective of whether she is short or tall, generally comment on the tall girls as nice and attractive. Having tall and skinny appearance is a usual way of attracting people and people do get attracted towards such models. Whether we are tall or short, we would always prefer to be tall. Beauty is believed to reside in the tall, skinny and good looking women. When we come across a tall person we think that it would have been different if you were tall. So, tallness is an inevitable accessory that is aspired for, by every lady to remain beautiful.

While making the commercials, they choose only tall, skinny and good looking girls, as they want their product to be sold easily by using a model that is pretty. If the customers see the beautiful girl advertising the product, it is the tendency of the people to buy the product. The tall and pretty models sell the products more easily, rapidly and comfortably. Moreover, tall women have long legs which look still more pretty and attractive. Tall girls have the opportunity of showing the dresses they wear as very much appealing. Though the dresses may not be so attractive, they still give lot of beauty to the tall people. So, being short is not an added advantage for being attractive.

It is a general opinion of an average man or woman in the public that being beautiful and tall are attractive features of a person. As models implement the average ideas of the public, the models are chosen to be tall and attractive in order to satisfy the public in general.

    I think this article is completely ridiculous. I’m 5’2 and not once have I wished to be taller. More than that, I know tall women who claim to feel awkward standing around other people. And not all men prefer tall women. So before you make absurd generalizations, remember that your opinions aren’t necessarily facts, and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    Thanks (;

    This article is complete garbage. I almost couldn’t continue to read it (especially with the questionable grammar–…”which look still more pretty and attractive”) What are you…13?
    First of all, models aren’t necessarily “more attractive”. Models aren’t chosen because the designers or agencies deem them “pretty” or “attractive”. They are chosen based on unique features. There are models out here who are not necessarily “tall” but yet they are still modelling professionally on runways around the world (Devon Aoki, for example, who is only 5’5″). Also, beauty is VERY subjective. Agencies never look for beauty, they look for UNIQUENESS. Yes, being tall is an asset to many designers but it isn’t EVERYTHING. The idea of “tallness” in models dates back to the early 1900’s. It had nothing to do with beauty but with what was easier to show and make. It’s easier to make clothes to show on a model who is a size 2 rather than a size 22. This has nothing to do with beauty. You can STILL be beautiful and be a size 22.

    Also, height does not declare you more attractive. (I mean, who thinks of these things……)

    Interesting. I haven’t worked in the modeling industry so I have no idea what they look for in models. However I am a guy and to generalize that all guys find taller girls more attractive is ridiculous. I have always gone for shorter girls as I tend to find them cuter. I admit that taller girls tend to have more sex appeal with their longer legs and so on, but attractiveness comes in all shapes and sizes.

    I also think it’s insane to think that all short people want to be tall lol. I’m only 5’8″ and have never wanted to be taller. As a guy and a Wrestler size is a big thing in my life. As a Wrestler I’m always in the gym trying to make my muscles as big as I can and as a guy there are other things that may not be as big as I want lol, but height has never been a problem.
