Look, I get it: you’ve been getting Oompa Loompa jokes since forever.
You’ve been called midget, Tiny Tim, Grumpy and all the other names.
Instead, you want clothes that are relatively consistent in hue.
Even subtle patterns in the fabric, such as herringbone weaves, can help you slim your visual profile and make you seem taller.
However, you want to keep those stripes – think pin-striping, rather than wide blocks of color. Window-pane patterns are a definite no; the horizontal stripes and the negative space created negate the eye-tracking effect you’re looking this means clothes that are cut close to your body.
That’s Just remember: Cultivating an air of ease and self-assurance is not only attractive in and of itself, but it leads into my next tip: It’s not how tall you are; it’s how tall people feel you are.
There are some people who can fill a room, regardless of how tall they are or aren’t.
The problem with this is that the sudden color change – from white to brown to blue – creates a visual interruption.
The eye doesn’t travel smoothly down your profile; the sudden change cuts you in half, truncating your torso and skewing your proportions.
A shitty attitude, whether angry and aggressive or defeated and negative, will nuke any chance of sex or love faster than telling them that you eat live puppies. A short man with confidence is far more attractive than a tall guy without it.
The attitude that your height is a defect and nobody could possibly love a short man is attraction poison. Yes, you may have to fake it for a while as you unlearn the bullshit that’s been shredding your ego.
The old saw about how vertical stripes is based on this idea.
