What do you think of petite or short girls? Are short girls more cute than their taller sisters?
When I was in high school, the most popular girls were usually good at sports, rich, and of average height. The very tall girls are often self-conscious of their height, and end up slouching to compensate. The very short girls tend to get overlooked. Some compensate by having a louder and more outgoing personality.
Short girls may also wear heels, and more flamboyant clothing in order to attract attention.
Short Girl or Tall Girl – Does It Matter?
Today, it is a lot more politically correct to say that physical appearance does not matter. However, reality tells us differently.
Social psychology studies show that we cannot help but be affected by the physical appearance of others. In fact, we sub-consciously associate attractive people with positive traits including intelligence, honesty, and kindness.
This is why television and magazines are disproportionately peopled with beautiful women and handsome men.
“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.
Should height matter?
Probably not. But the fact remains that it does.
Short Girl Pictures
To create these pictures, I wanted to pair my short girl with a tall girl counterpart. This will help to magnify height as the differentiating factor.
In addition, the tall girl also has an updo hairstyle, which further accentuates her height. The short girl has shorter, flatter hair, that is tied up in a ponytail.
I also decided to dress both girls in school uniforms. During high school was when I thought about height and physical attractiveness most, therefore it seemed appropriate.
