I am mainly asking about women being tall or short, but you can answer what it is like for guys too. Explain why.

Tall. Tall women have longs legs they can wrap around you. They look more classy, they carry weight better and look better in clothes - there is a reason models are tall. They make perfect arm-candies. They can make an entrance and turn heads like no one else. They have this heavenly beauty that cannot be acquired just by wearing make-up or high heels - it's their stature and charisma. They have something other girls can't compete with - they have tall genetics and can give you tall kids. No amount of sleeping right or eating vegetables can compensate for lack of tall genes. They are also physically more compatible with tall men like me - easier to kiss, dance, converse etc.
It's also an advantage in the business world. Tall people in general tend to be more successful. I don't get exactly why, and it's certainly not fair, but studies have shown they get paid more.2

Being 173cm and having long legs is a nightmare when it comes to shopping for clothes. Even the stuff that's labeled as tall is a "standard tall", meaning 2 cm above average.
Tall also means bigger feet and therefore you're stuck with ugly-ass shoes unless you're willing to pay top dollar. Nobody designs pretty shoes for big feet.
I don't shop in department stores because I know they will never have trowsers/jeans. You know why? Because the presumption is that if you're tall, that means you're fat.
No matter what store I go to, if they have shit my length, it's always in size XXL. Wtf?
So I do all my bottoms and shoe shopping online. Can still get tops and coats in stores, though.4
