Couple goes viral after sharing photos of ’embarrassing’ height difference
6ft 3in ‘goddess’ revealed her smaller boyfriend is so happy she towers over him that he encourages her to wear heels – and claims she is even ‘worshiped’ by obsessed fans social media.
Lizzy Groombridge has spent years feeling self-conscious about her size after being called a ‘flanky beanpole’ by cruel bullies at school – as she passed her friends, family and even her father at the age of. 13 years.
However, the 27-year-old has now embraced her size and has become a TikTok sensation thanks to her stature, with 127,000 adoring fans, many of whom comment on “how lucky her boyfriend is” daily.
Since Lizzy is 10cm taller than her three-year-old boyfriend Nick Coles, at 5ft 11in, she admits the couple’s height difference made her “uncomfortable” at first.
But now they ignore “comments” when they’re together and Nick, 33, even encourages her to wear heels that leave her a staggering 6ft 6in tall.
And while Nick admits he initially felt “insecure or paranoid” because of the attention Lizzy is getting online, he now sees her positively “because she is his.”
Lizzy, from Camborne, Cornwall, said: “When you’re that big you stand out all the time and sometimes I can’t even walk through doors without stooping down.
“At school, people called me beanpole or gangly and that made me really shy and shy.
“I used to avoid wearing heels because a lot of my friends are only 5ft 3in tall and with my boyfriend the height difference was a little uncomfortable at first as well.
“He had never had a taller girlfriend before and stereotypically the man is supposed to be the tallest so it made me feel pretty embarrassed and stupid.
“But we don’t care about the size difference anymore and he likes it when I wear heels – people will say how taller I am, but we don’t mind.
“TikTok helped me take my height – I have 127,000 followers out there who call me ‘queen’ and ‘goddess’ and worship me because of my height, so now I love being tall.
“I created my own hashtag of my nickname ‘Lizzy Long Legs’ and it has almost ten million views.”
Lizzy was visibly tall from a young age, surpassing all of her friends and immediate family, including her 6-foot dad, at the age of 13.
Her seemingly endless growth spurt that put her at 6-foot-3 has caused her a lot of trouble over the years trying to find clothes that fit her well.
Lizzy said: “At 13, I was a lot taller than most of the boys in my class at school, as well as all of the girls and my family.
“From the age of 16, I’ve always been noticed for my height because there aren’t many women as tall as me, especially where I live.
“Having well-fitting clothes has always been a nightmare – I’m a size ten at the waist, but even long jeans don’t fit my legs.
“A lot of places don’t even stock their larger sizes in store, which I think is very unfair.
“I live with skirts most of the time because they are easier to get but even they are quite short for me.”
The mother-of-three took a break from her former babysitting job to focus on raising her children, Rhuben, nine, Logan, six, and Skyla, one year after the birth of her older child. young baby.
But once her waist-focused social media pages took off – posting videos and curating Q&A about what it’s like to be a tall woman – she found a new path of career by taking advantage of its size.
Not only is she paid for her viral TikToks and requested videos, but she also created an Only Fans account last October to take advantage of her online popularity as a “Long Legged Lizzy.”
Soon she found herself winning over tens of thousands of people in just six months and no longer needed to return to work in nine to five care.
Now she hopes to use her popularity on social media to open a womenswear business for tall women who struggle to find clothes like her.
Lizzy said, “I make a lot of money on social media because of my height – I get paid for my Instagram posts and TikTok videos and even get video requests like standing in front of a door.
“I also have an Only Fans account which took off very quickly once I created it and have been among the top two percent earners over the past six months.
“During that time, I made tens of thousands of dollars and received around £ 3,000 in gifts from fans, like heels to wear in my posts.
“In my old job in care, working part-time because of my children, I was making £ 600 per month (£ 3,600 in six months) – so I earn almost ten times as much now at home.
“It’s crazy but there is a huge market for really tall girls.
“I want to turn my nickname and hashtag into a brand name and a business selling merchandise and possibly womenswear for big girls like me.”
Nick said: “I’m proud of the confident beautiful girl she has blossomed into. Some people expect me to be insecure or paranoid because of the attention she gets online, but I see it positively because it is mine.
“She empowers others, embraces who she is and makes a living in ways that may be unconventional but in a beneficial way and nothing means more to her than providing for her children.
“She’s an amazing mom and girlfriend. The size difference, while noticeable, never bothers me because she is unique and I love it.
“She has come a long way in just a few years and is proof that you can rise from the bottom up and find yourself even when you feel lost.”
