Well I am only 5’6”, wear a plus size 1 right now (I’m working on it). I am lucky though because The clothes I like come in my size. Don’t with to be too small. My wife is just shy of 5’ and she has trouble finding clothes that fit too.
As for the being clocked or read, we have a friend who was born female. She is 6’2” and gorgeous, but she too is really insecure about her height, and she’s is literally a model.
