Being tall is a good thing for some people but for the ones that are abnormally tall, this could be a curse. Unless they use it to their advantage this height problem can cause serious problems with finding clothes and shoes but for the most part, their health could suffer severely from all of the added inches to their body frame. Let’s check the list of top 10 tallest women in the world in 2018.
10. Heather Greene
She lives in Las Vegas, Nevada and stands at 6ft and 5.5 inches tall. That does not include the height that is added when she wears her stilettos that she loves so much. The woman is very popular in the United States just because of how tall she is. Born as an American, Heather does have trouble finding clothes that fit her correctly. Most of the time she has to have them made to fit customly. Her health is in jeopardy because of the height as well but I guess when you are famous and have a lot of respect given towards you, it is ok that clothes do not fit right and you body could break down at such an early age in life.
9. Rita Miniva Besa
She is from Zimbabwe but now she is living here in the United States. Because of her six foot eight inch height, Rita is on a basketball team. Sometimes when you are standing at an extreme height it can actually be a good thing for you. Rita is the perfect example of that since she is a terrific basketball player because of what her height does for her on the court. She is famous and has all the talent for an awesome sport. I am sure she feels very lucky to be who she is and if she is not already, she should be very proud of her accomplishments.

7. Malee Duangdee
She is the tallest woman is Thailand but the second tallest in all of Asia. Six foot ten inches can be quite an issue for some people to deal with but Malee seems to manage herself just fine. She is this tall because she has a tumor that has caused her overgrowth which puts her in at number seven for the world’s tallest woman. The only way for Malee to have a normal life is by taking a tumor shrinking drug but because of the price it makes it very expensive for her family to afford.

She is from India and because she is the sixth tallest woman in the world, this makes her a great inspiration to so many others living in India. Her dad was also a basketball player and very tall.

These women have to deal with being tall and if they are already gone they dealt with a lot during being a live. The fact that they was so tall took a toll on their backs and cause many problems that some could not fix because of money. If you ever get to meet someone this tall you will know that it does cause a lot of back problems and problem things you do not even notice. Having to deal with being made fun of and being banned from your family hurts and if you know this feeling then i would not make fun of anyone else.
