I am a tall, slim and attractive lady (even if I may say so myself) from the UK! 6.2' to be exact. People, especially men, turn their heads when they see me walk past and guess what?! I wear ladies size 9 shoes!
I have no complaints about my height. After all, that's what makes me unique. However, being a tall woman in Britain isn't easy. If you're a tall lady, it's hard to find the right size clothes, the right size shoes or even the right size man!
In 1980s when I was studying in London University, I found it incredibly hard to find anything to fit me. Finding the right shoes was a daunting task and when you did find them in the right size, they weren't great to look at, so more often than not, I wore men's shoes instead. At least I could find men's shoes that were made well looked good and you could find plenty of them in size 9.
30 years on, it's quite unbelievable what has happened. We almost have the other extreme! There are just so many (may be too many) plus size clothing and footwear
products. Can there be too many I hear you ask? Well in my opinion yes, because I personally think quality and fashion are very important and it's sometimes very hard to find the product with the right quality. Having said that, the rule 'you get what you pay for' often applies to plus size shoes and clothing too. If you look hard enough, and pay the right amount of money, you'll find what's right for you.
I now have a large collection of size 9 shoes, boots, pumps and sandals, most of which I purchase online. For me the appearance and quality are top priorities and most of my purchases are large ladies shoes
made in Europe or the US. Being a tall lady, I know I'll always to have pay a little more to get the quality I want, but that's the price you pay for turning heads I suppose!
The internet serves as a base to shop for almost any product. The World Wide Web is ideal for ladies with large feet that can't find their shoe size in normal shops. There are some ladies who have to see, touch and try, before they buy. Who could blame them? After all we all know that quality large shoes for women are not cheap and who would want to end up with a pair of shoes that are uncomfortable or just don't look or feel right when they arrive by post? The good news for those ladies is that a handful of the online stores specializing in plus size ladies shoes have high street outlets as well. The best of them are located in central London which is what you would expect. For those ladies who feel the need to try before they buy, they can short-list the best online stores that also have retail outlets, short-list the shoes they like online, and then visit the stores and try them on.
And the good news for me is that my daughter, who is 14 years old, 5.8' tall, and already a shoe size 7, will not find it quite as hard to find the right clothes, or shoes. She plays a lot of basketball at school and actually wants to be at least as tall as me. I'm delighted that she has no hang-ups about her height and yes you guessed it, I did find the right size man. All the 6.6' of him in fact and we got married in 1996.
The future looks reassuring. I will continue my love affair with my shoes and I'll be making regular visits to my favorite plus size ladies shoe shop in London. They are definitely not the cheapest by any stretch of the imagination but their products are truly stylish, up to date and made to last.
