Petite Style Tip - How to look taller

When you’re petite, you want to look at tall as possible. One of the easiest way to do this is to change your posture.

Simply stand tall with your head up and shoulders back. You could also pop a book on your head and practice walking tall. Β It’s not as easy as it l looks!

    Great tip. My mom always told me ‘stand up straight – shoulders back’. I find that when I get stressed, I subconsciously hunch my shoulders to my ears – not the best look! Working on head up, shoulders back!

    • Thanks for commenting Alexandra. Isn’t it strange how stress causes a change in body language.

    I love the photo! That’s the way I was trained to walk by my mom . . . long time ago! We had lots of fun trying out with different books. It works!

    • I wish I was trained to walk when I was younger. It’s much harder to do now that I’m older, but I keep on trying.

    As I was reading this I realized that I am sitting hunched over at my computer. Thank you for the reminder!

    • i tend to hunch over too! thanks for the reminder!

    • When I’m on the computer I tend to notice that I stick my neck out and have to remind myself to put it back in as I’m too busy concentrating on the computer screen.

    Thanks for the tip! I guess this would benefit anyone regardless of size, since it makes you look more proud and self confident.

  • thanks for the tip! i’m only 5ft tall so i can use all the help i can get. i hate it when tall people don’t notice me while they’re walking.


    • You’re welcome. When I’m in a room with strangers, I always make an effort to stand tall. When we are short, we need to stand tall in order to gain presence in the room and emit confidence.

    Excellent tips, Carol, good for any height! I do not consider myself petite, though I am not super tall either.
    I think I’ll teach my daughter your trick so she does not hunch anymore – I’ll tell her it’s so she can be taller πŸ™‚


    Excellent tip, Carol! I need to remember this. My posture is really bad. Sitting at my desk all day doesn’t help either. Have a wonderful week!
