@Bobby

I don't know, I'm just going by the possibilities which are dead against you given your age (you are over 21 I believe) even though you claim your father grew at a late age, that doesn't guarantee anything. Plus, as many have mentioned, you look a lot older than your age (not that it's a bad thing). I personally thought you were in your 30s judging only from your photo. Justin Bieber and Dicaprio are examples of late bloomers who also looked physically underdeveloped for their age, you look overdeveloped.

By the way, at your extreme low, you are 5'9 5/8. That's a textbook definition of a weak 5'10. I honestly WOULDN'T MIND if you claimed 5'10 in real life, I said before I WOULDN'T consider you a liar. BUT, this is celebheights, and every fraction counts, and EVERY celebrity is listed at their low measumerent.

Also, I saw your facebook profile page. Dude, seriously? You have your height in your description as '' 5'10 or Almost 6 feet''. Aside from the fact that it's a lie, ( you are not even 5'10 and you claim almost 6 feet ) even I would never say something like that about myself. It shows way too much insecurity. If you want to lie about your height, just write ''6 feet'' and be done with it. 5'11.5 is almost 6 feet, or maybe at most 5'11 is almost 6 feet, but 5'10 is just 5'10.

@ Nik - I found your comment centering round Dutch women becoming taller over the years due to a dairy-rich diet very interesting indeed! It gave me a bit of solace that I actually reached my optimum height because I have always had a diet very rich in dairy products, though not things like meat and eggs. This was particularly the case when I was growing up! I hope the youngsters who read that comment take in what is a fantastic tip to reach their maximum possible height - and then maintain it! πŸ‘
It looks as though we've been thinking along the same lines about how quickly the comments pass through on this page! πŸ‘

@ Bobby and Canson - It's great that you agree - brilliant in fact! It's quite logical that your true height (and weight) are the ones you wake up to first thing in the morning. My Dad has a medical background and that's what he has always sworn by. πŸ‘πŸ‘

rob i've a question , i have a bad posture and i wear lifts of 1 in (standing right under the stadiometre i'm 183cm) is that cheating
Bobby said on 22/Apr/17
I wouldn't be saying I was 5'10 if I dropped to 5'9.25 and even Rob said that it'd be a big roundup at that point. So obviously, if you're like 1/4 or 1/8 off, it's fair to claim the full inch, and some people even do it at 1/2, I used to as well. If I measured 5'11.5 at night for instance, I'd claim 6ft as well, other times I'd say I was a shade under 6ft to be more honest. I like to think that most people are quite honest about their height, and may only be 1/2 off if they're estimating. That's in real life though, on the internet it is different.

@Kaneff 6'0.25, I'm not an American and I do not have a warped perception on build. Currently I have the body of Patrick Bateman Click Here with smaller arms and uglier face (unfortunately). I do not have a typical male body-when I gain weight, the last place I gain fat is my waist (I currently have a 76 cm waist at 81 kg) so even with 85 kg I look slender to other people. However, my fat gets stored on my thighs and butt the most, there's that :(
Oh, and I appreciate your kind response :)
G 5'11 said on 22/Apr/17
Oh snap ice is back! The self proclaimed 6'2-6'3 guy who still feels short. And yeah French guy is almost doing the same saying he feels short at 6 ft that's ridiculous.
@Don't know what to claim (5'11) well it depends on the scenario if it's a slight round up from a low then that's fine, but if it's a major one where people would notice the difference that's another story. Btw what's your morning and evening height, I think you're a strong 5'11 right?
G 5'11 said on 22/Apr/17
@Arthur, well I remember how you where always coming at everyone here. In the morning I'm sure we are the same because I've measured 5'11.25 before out of bed, even slightly over couple times it depends on how many hours of sleep I get but I never dropped below 5'10.5 and actually the other day got 5'10.75 even at like 7/8 pm. And that's because that guy thought he was taller and kept trying to make some kind of point that he was taller then bobby at his lowest lol. πŸ˜‚

Canson said on 22/Apr/17
@Christian: I do claim it sometimes 6'4.5 meaning. You're right it's close enough. But being I drop lower than the 3/8 to a solid 1/3" I say 6'4 and change. Some days even 1/4" that I come down to. Difference with me vs Connor is he is closer to 6'0" than I am to 6'5 and Rampage said it once that not a lot of people claim 1/2" until this generation (I actually used to hear a lot of people say they're 5'11 1/2 but that was to make themselves sound 6'00). I don't always claim it just because I always get why don't you round up to 6'5" I don't consider myself 6'5" and at my height don't need any more of a boost really (I'm content). In addition it's a matter of I have taller friends who don't round up or claim the 1/2". I have a friend who is more your height or even a hair taller. DOEsnt drop below 196.3-.4 usually and he himself never claims the half very tall guys don't always claim it I've noticed

@J-181/182 Average in the UK is more or less the same as in France (about 177-178 cm), maybe nearer 179 cm for youths so 183 cm is still weak tall range.

Shiva 181cm - Hello Shiva! Thanks for your reply! I'm glad it's fully established and accepted that Connor is a full 6ft! All this 'weak 6ft' and 'strong 6ft' terminology is something I have only become familiar with since coming to this website! Yes, it makes a great deal of sense that the taller among us lose more height in a day; I hope that means that I hardly lose any! Some chance of that!
Isn't this a busy page? It's a great thing that this website exists because it is all too clear that a lot of people have height worries!
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend Shiva! Cheers!

Bobby said on 21/Apr/17
@G 5'11, I'm also surprised he even gave you a hard time. I mean, why would anybody go around claiming their low, when they can claim their afternoon height? If you're only 1/4 of an inch off, that's practically invisible. Furthermore, most people will also round up at 1/2, and that's not unreasonable either, math teaches us to do that anyway.
Bobby said on 21/Apr/17
@Sandy Cowell, that's what I think as well, your out of bed height is your true height anyway. The spine is like a spring, if I apply a force on it to compress it, using my own hands, the spring's height will shrink but that's not the spring's true height. Once I release the force I'm exerting, it will decompress to its full length. Same principle applies with the spine. I claim my 5'10, and I don't lose sleep over it either.
@G 5'11, he's some kind of height troll/height police. I guarantee if I was even a decimetre off 5'10, he'd come in with his microscope and call me a liar even then.
@Arthur, how do you know King Arthur? My dad received another inch while still in his 20s, hereditary predicts I will follow suit. I also do know what it feels like to be above 5'10, I'm roughly 5'10.5 in the morning after all. Just because you edge me out, doesn't mean I'm any less of a 5'10 guy.
Canson said on 21/Apr/17
@G 5'11": I partially agree with you. It's ok to claim whatever you measure because people can say what they want. Just remember that you do lose height throughout the day so that number will not stick if its your out of bed or morning rounded up. I only say this because you get that a lot of times a guy who is 6'3.5-.75 an hour out of bed and claims 6'4". Then inflates a legit 6'4" person who may only measure bang on 6'4" at their lowest. Meaning they're a full maybe 3/4" taller than they inflate them. Even with me I get guys who I'm a full inch or maybe slightly more taller than claiming 6'4" that could be shoes or even morning heights
Canary said on 21/Apr/17
@Nik: I live in the Midwest. My community is between a big city and a small town in size. It's mostly white, but it's more diverse than it was in the past. I noticed a change during the past few years.

Dutch girls were tiny in the 1600s, and Dutch people were the shortest people in Europe back then. Things, like poverty and war, caused this. Dutch women are much taller now because they are raised in much better environments. Their diets, rich in dairy products, played a huge role.

Yes, it's unexpected to find taller Asian women and shorter white women. It's not unusual to find tall people in northern China, so the stereotype of short Asians often goes too far. Young South Koreans certainly aren't short, and Japanese girls' heights are steadily increasing. Nurture plays a greater role than nature, except in some southeastern Asian countries.

I don't notice the exact same kind of height disparities between men. They're close in both the higher-income and lower-income sections, but there might be a disparity of an inch or so. I'm more interested in females' heights, so that might affect my observations. I also work with tiny younger women.
Canson said on 21/Apr/17
You all have to remember that Arthur is Telling the truth here and being specific. They fall below the amount as they said. It's no need to bash him for speaking his mind and saying that. You don't see anyone doing that to people who use their morning height and think it's ok or round it up. It's always to someone that they feel downgrades.

Now. That said as far as Connor and Bobby go: them saying 5'10 and 6'0" is more than fair and very honest as they are well close enough at their lowest. All Arthur is saying is that they don't measure the full number at their lowest which is a true statement. That's far different from what they can actually claim and considering most people round as it is it is perfectly legit. It's really much ado about nothing
Canson said on 21/Apr/17
Bobby I agree with Sandy on that. Unless you were like 5'9.25 or something maybe a bit lower Or hair higher It's fine. I don't round up but because I'm not close enough to 6'5 only .33 and can come down lower than that to .25-.3 easily at night some days (nor do I care at this stage as 6'4" is plenty tall). And as I have said many times it's a damn number a claim that's all it is. People will have their own opinion of how tall you are regardless of what you tell them that's a fact.

I must admit I feel super dominated here in Denmark since average height for young males is 198 cm, milk prices have decreased by 67% causing severe inflation and I have no idea what Im talking about

french guy m said on 21/Apr/17
I have observed height for 2 weeks and I still believe the average height for young men is 185 cm
185 cm seems to be the most common height
180 cm is short even at 183 cm I feel short
190 cm and 195 are common heights.
175.cm is rather common too but looks very short sometimes , especially at university
I think if you are not atleast average , you will never be always happy , no matter where you live .

In fact, you are mistaken, the average height for the younger generation is 6'1.5-6'2.5 (187-189 cm), sounds more believable ;)

Yeah. Most people will see you as 5'11. Most, not all. So some other people could see you as 5'10.5. What can you not understand? Hell you just said there's been people estimating you at 5'7/8 JESUS CHRIST! Either these ''people'' are 5 year olds or you aren't really a weak 5'11. The least I have been guessed is 5'9 and the most 6'1. 5'7 is just insane

@grizz

No offense but many people especially Americans have a warped perception of what a healthy weight is nowadays. 180lbs at 6'0" isn't skinny by any means it's just normal and probably aesthetically ideal if you lift and have low body fat. I find it laughable that anyone would be worried about your health at 180lbs they are probably just jealous. Most guys who are 190-200lbs at 6'0" are skinny-fat with a dad bod (20%+ body fat) unless they're a bodybuilder and are in great shape which the majority aren't.

Also 165 lbs at 6'2" is thin but it's a perfectly healthy and normal weight. It's possible to have a Brad Pitt Fight Club-esque physique at that size so tbh I don't get why your colleague would get made fun of. Now somebody like Peter Crouch who is 165lbs at 6'7.5", that is what I would consider too skinny. I mean I get what you're saying though 6'1-6'1.5 guy would probably look better if he gained 15-20lbs muscle, as would I, but I just think you are exaggerating a bit in your post.
G 5'11 said on 21/Apr/17
@Arthur, you're ridiculous and dillusional lol. First of all, He's literally over 5'10 most of the day until his low. Second of all there's nothing "brag worthy"/significant about standing over "5'10" it's really not that stand out of a height, now if we where talking about 6'1 or even 6'2 then I would understand. 2nd of all how you going to come at bobbys neck ,when you wake up at 5'11 but drop down to about a flat 5'10 or so at your low, therefore you have to claim 5'10. Is that why you are trying to make being "5'10 " something significant. I mean it's not like you're even 6 foot.

I am not being rude. Bobby said to one guy that he is taller than him, that's why I answered him that I am taller than Bobby respectively.

By the way G, since your lowest height range is 5'10.5-5'10.75 and mine is 5'10-5'10.25 indeed you edge me out, BUT, I think that in the morning I am taller than you, since I have woken as high as 181 cm. So I am taller than you too or at least the same height as you, in the morning ;)

Canson said on 20/Apr/17
If 5'11 7/8 is connor's lowest height he is a legit 6'0". He won't look any different than one. Really 1/8" isn't easy to tell and nothing an insole etc can't fix and actually make him a strong 6'0 at least look it. If you're 3/4" or below an argument can be made but for Connor there really is none that he isn't 6'0" tall.

-----

Canson, you're 6'4 3/8" at your lowest, so do you consider yourself a legit 6'4.5"? I don't see anything wrong with claiming 6'4.5", since 6'4 3/8" is closer to it than a flat 6'4".
J-181/182 said on 21/Apr/17
@french guy m
If you base dominance on height then there's something wrong right there and 185 is in the 91st percentile in the uk as an average dunno how it is in France but must be similar if not more
183 is tallish a legit strong 6 footer will feel tall especially here in the uk and I believe the average in France is about an inch shorter than the uks 5'10 perhaps it's even 5'8 making that range even more rare in France

Out of interest could you tell me the name of the City that you come from please?

You mean Dutch women were once ranked as being some of the shortest women in the world? Do you know the reason for the Dutch women going from being only the size of today's Indonesian women to being as tall as they are nowadays? You say the Asian women from the higher-income area of town are not much taller on average than the white women from the lower-income area of town, it's still interesting that the Asian women are indeed taller than the white women though isn't it!?

Do you find similar patterns with the height of men in the different areas of your City? What would you say the average height is for men in the higher-income area? What is the average height for men in the lower-income area?

Cheers!

@ Bobby - That's really stupid as well! Ignore them and claim your full 5ft10, because that's your proper height. I wouldn't dream of putting my last-thing-at-night height as my height EVER! Not just because it would be rather gruesome, but because I don't believe it's my height, apart from once in a blue moon and only under extreme circumstances!

@Sandy Cowell ,Connor is 6' tall yes I agree, yes he should claim 6' but waking at 6'0.5 would make him more or less a weak 6' guy, a strong 6' would definitely wake up at 6'0.75 or 6'1 an ,if he loses just 1/2"(which I think is rare for a guy around 6' ) from out of bed to low then he's a legit 6'
G 5'11 said on 21/Apr/17
@J181-182 that's because a lot of people lie about their own height, yeah whether they are insecure or not is debatable. They also underestimate/over estimate. As I've gotten estimates as low as 5'7-5'8 and even some over 6 foot when I'm a weak 5'11. Yeah no ones going to call you out for a slight round up. Now let's say I said " I am 6'1 or 6'2" then some people would look at me like I must be some illegal drugs or something.
@Bobby yea these height trolls are just about everywhere you look, Arthur is trying to get across his point that it must be a federal offense if you round up a small fraction from your lowest lol. But I can't tell you how many times I've heard people overexagerrate worse.

LOL! Yeah, keep dreaming buddy! You will never know what it feels like to always stand above 5'10. 5'9 3/4 is all you get for the rest of your life (though I believe you will drop down to 5'9.5 at a real extreme low, but anyway)

6'1-6'1.5, dude,seriously gain some weight. By some I mean serious amount of weight. My ex-gf had your weight @5'8 and she had a slender physique.
A colleague of mine was 6'2 and 165 lbs- girls made fun of him.
I dropped recently to 180lbs (6') and half a dozen people were worries about my health. And they aren't fat people, one of my friends is a professional athlete (slightly shorter but same weight) and he insists I should gain 10 lbs. And he's one of the few people that can tell other people straight to face that they are overweight (so that you don't think that he encourages overweight movement).
Maintain caloric suficit, eat at least 1.5g of protein on 2 lbs of your lean mass and lift weights.

Bobby and csimpson both need to spend days where they only sleep 4-5 hours, have minimal hydration and do intense gym workouts and lifting of weights. Then after being on your feet for 12 hours you will see you drop an inch at least from your morning. So for you Bobby you would be 5'9.3 under such circumstances or even a bit lower, and Connor would be around 5'11 and a half under such. Under such circumstances myself being up for 16 hours and doing multiple workouts with only moderate hydration and poor nights sleep before found I can drop to 6'1.25 and the next day after a good nights rest and some water throughout the night recharge to 6'2.5

That's just daft. What else, do you have to weigh yourself at night after drinking several bottles of water?
179cm said on 20/Apr/17
Arthur said on 20/Apr/17
But you know, since we can claim every single valid measurement we get, Bobby could take his morning height in shoes, so he would be ''almost 5'11.5'' and maybe round it up a little bit and claim 6 feet. That's as valid as claiming 5'10 when he is 176.9 cm. Lol.

No, that's where you're wrong. You can justify claiming 5'10" if 176.9cm is your height without shoes. Height with shoes on is false. So rounding up your height with shoes on can not be justified. They really are not the same thing.

Connor is a legit 6ft. Not every 6 footer is going to laser measure exactly 6'0.00" at night it's okay to be 1/8" under or over and claim a height. Look at a ruler and you'll see how insignificant 1/8" is. Case closed.

@Nik: Some of my friends, who played basketball and volleyball with me, are close to my height. I rarely see women around my height, even in the upper-income section of town. I work in a managerial position. It's in the lower-income section of town, and many of my female colleagues live there.

The Asian women might be an inch or more taller than the white women. It's not a huge difference. It's just that you find some Asian women who dwarf and tower many white women. On a historical note along these lines, past Dutch girls once were the size of present Indonesian girls.

@6'1-6'1.5 Guy

That is a BMI of 19 which is quite light but still in the lower limit of healthy range. I don't think it would be a good idea to be any lower than that, though. I'm an inch shorter than you and weigh 140lbs which is also a 19 BMI. I'm healthy at my weight it's just hard for me to gain mass because of my thin frame and ectomorph build.
G 5'11 said on 20/Apr/17
@Es claim either almost 6'2 or go with 6'2. Or if you want to be really precise say 6'1.5"
G 5'11 said on 20/Apr/17
@Bobby I know exactly how tall that guy is though he posts a lot on here he says he's around 6 foot, honestly true but you still can tell there's approximately 2.25-2.5 inches of difference in that picture. That's why I'm saying he looks a weak 5 ft 10. Sure we won't know exactly unless we met them both in person and measured them. But that's cool how you're still growing, I wish I could grow a little bit more.
@6'1-6'1.5 guy yes that's a bit skinny, you weigh less then me and you got me beat by a solid 2 or so inches. You should be at least 160-170 for that height.
@Arthur man why you always being rude? Who cares that you're taller then bobby and I'm taller then you and then we got the other 6'+guys who are taller then all of us lmfao there's always going to be someone taller unless you're like 7'5"!

@Arthur no i know too deeply that i am a legit 6fter
Bobby said on 20/Apr/17
@Arthur, arguing that Connor isn't a legit 6ft because he's 1/8 of an inch under at his low is just ridiculous. If I was 1mm under 6ft at night, you'd still argue I wasn't six foot. You're obsessed about height really, arguing over insignificant details that mean nothing in the real world. Who's gonna care that I'm 6mm under 5'10 at my low? Who's gonna care that Connor is 3-4mm under 6ft at his low? Nobody. Worthless details, they mean nothing. It's a negligible difference. Nothing wrong with claiming afternoon height, it's a valid height.
@Canary, they're height obsessed, very annoying.
Bobby said on 20/Apr/17
@Arthur, I am still 5'10, so get over it. I only lose 1.3cm on average still measured 5'10 after 4 hours, and 5'9 and 7/8s after 5 hours. At the end of the day, I will measure 9.76 range. Yes, you're taller than I am, but I can still say I am reasonably 5'10.
@Peter 179cm, no, I lose 1.3cm, that's still within 0.5 inches, and for the record, weight has nothing to do with height loss throughout the day either. I'm 200lbs but I'm not overweight, I've got good posture and a strong back. Considering my low is 177.2cm, don't you think, that in the afternoon, I will measure a flat 5'10? I'm claiming my afternoon height, please understand that.
@G 5'11, he's a height troll if I've ever seen one, I'm over 5'10 in the morning, just a touch under 179cm actually, and I only lose 1.3cm. I call myself a textbook 5'10 because I go 1/4 of an inch under. If Rob doesn't see the issue with rounding up and claiming 5'10, I don't see why everybody else does. 5'11.5 would be a great height, maybe if I do stretching exercises, I can manage 5'10.5 in the morning.
J-181/182 said on 20/Apr/17
@Arthur You are taking this way to seriously this is what's wrong with people that are insecure about height

Let him claim what he wants it's not like 1-2 cm is noticeable I constantly get told I'm 6'1 or 6 got even though I'm a strong 5'11 height is scewed in society today many people 5'10 claim 6 foot I'm sure he will be fine rounding up and same for Conor but it shouldn't even matter the fact is big rob knows it's something small and petty weak 6 foot is still 6 foot visa Versa

You seem insecure for being a average height kind of dude have a snicker

cowboy said on 20/Apr/17
I can't believe we are arguing again about who is taller than who. No one cares, your all about 5'10 and if you were standing together side by side you would all be guessed at 5'9 to 5'10 and considered average height. I think it's ok to claim 1/2 inch heights but no one is going to say I'm 5'9 and 3/4 nighttime. Just say your 5'9 and a half that way if a legit 5'10-5'10 1/2 is around he won't bust you out on your claim. Also morning height is not legit, your going to lose a half inch just in the first hour of being up if your on your feet the whole time.

@ Shiva - Hi Shiva! I can't think of anyone who has put himself and his height measuring under more scrutiny than Connor! I wonder how many celebrities have done the same and, though they may dip marginally below 6ft in extreme sleep-deprived and very active situations, don't hesitate to claim 6ft and even marginally more. By that I mean the most they are ever measured at, fresh out of bed!
Connor does have every right to claim a full 6ft! I would not say this for the good of my health!

Canson said on 20/Apr/17
@Shiva: yea that's extreme there. He probably can even pass for 6'6" to some if he measured AM against someone else. Safe to say he's got me by an inch. That's why I claim 6'4 even tho I measure a little under 196 out of bed I'm a hair under 194 at night. I don't want to put people like that in a situation as i know they don't lie up. As for your friend 6'5" is a desired height by many. It's not bad really. Maybe he hadn't been measured or didn't believe it or maybe he downplayed it. I met a guy who had to have been a full or weak 6'6" that said once "well I say I'm 6'5 but I'm really closer to 6'6". He slouched badly too and then said he's 6'5 1/2 but he looked 6'6" imho and I round down from a normal low day of 6'4.33 and he still looked 1.5" taller than me 4cm or so. Now a long time ago it wasn't but today it is by many guys (the Rock is one of them lol). He's a good height. However that's where the line draws to the end. 6'6 barefoot is not desired height imho. 196 and 197 is right there to where you can still live comfortably even in a regular shoe. it's tall but it's not unbearable. But push comes to shove I'd much rather be 6'4" than 6'5" just because I'm a practical person who has back problems so partly why I claim the way I do too not to mention that I believe in claiming what you keasure the easiest and most frequent and I'm 6'4" range the entire day essentially sans about 10 minutes in the morning maybe.
Canson said on 20/Apr/17
@Christian: and for me I don't want to keep the streak going and trend going where it looks devalued lol. I did claim both 6'5" before and 6'4.5. For me my dad is 6'4" so if I'm next to him it's quite obvious and have taller friends who don't round up either so 6'4" is. But in my case I like 6'4" as I'm accustomed to it and I know taller guys one of which is your height 196.4cm thereabouts when I claim 6'5" it inflates him. Most of those guys don't want to be any taller and in my case I really don't either as I'm not using it for pro ball. It's just a number to me.

@G 5'11, I'm also one of those rare few who have managed to grow 0.3 inches in the past year. Don't reckon I'm done growing yet, I might be able to squeeze out another inch at some point.
Bobby said on 20/Apr/17
@G 5'11, we can't say for sure whether he's a weak 5'10 or not, because we only a see height difference from the collar and up, unless we saw an actual full body picture, showing a height difference, we wouldn't know. Furthermore, we'd have to know how tall one of them was. Pictures aren't a good judge of height because angles can distort or throw off a person's actual measured height. You're better off judging height in person.
Arthur said on 20/Apr/17
@Sally

Thank you Sally. It is certainly preferable that all men carrying it are close in height. But that almost never happens.
This year only myself and another friend were nearly the same height at 5'10. The two other guys were 6'0 and 5'7/8.
Arthur said on 20/Apr/17
Pretty much everyone here agrees that Connor isn't a legitimate 6 footer but a weak one. Only reason Rob lists him at 6 even is so that Connor doesn't get upset. I don't think we should discuss Connor's height anymore, we all know he isn't a legit 6 footer and he knows it too deeply, that's why he always states his height when he gets a chance and asks all the cupboard and 6 foot related questions. He is almost 6 foot, he should be happy and embrace his height which is still a good height. There is no more reason to argue.

@Booby

And, I, am taller than you. How do you feel about that? My EXTREME low, which is 178.0 cm, is nearly 1 cm taller than your USUAL low. And if we take morning heights, I am exactly 2 cm taller than you.

But you know, since we can claim every single valid measurement we get, Bobby could take his morning height in shoes, so he would be ''almost 5'11.5'' and maybe round it up a little bit and claim 6 feet. That's as valid as claiming 5'10 when he is 176.9 cm. Lol.

You are ''almost 5'10'', I am ''5'10 and change'', get over it Bobby.

@Canary

You have made some interesting points concerning the heights of women in different American regions. How often do you see women that are your height or taller? From your previous posts I have picked up on the fact that you come into contact with a lot of tiny women! Have you got any friends that are taller than you?

It is also fascinating that in your city the Asian women from the higher income areas can tower over the white women from lower income areas, it shows that like you said income levels are a much bigger pointer to height than anything else, where you live anyway. In your city would you say that on average Asian women from higher income areas are taller than white women from lower income areas?

G 5'11 said on 19/Apr/17
@Michael R okay you're taller then both of them though, your tall in general get over it. If I was your height I would care about claiming my absolute low, as you're a good few inches taller then I am.
@177 cm, yeah seriously what's your problem? Why are you trying to see if you'd be able to edge Bobby in person? He's 5'10 you're under 5'10 so he's going to be taller. And so what if he looks 30, I look like I'm 16 and I'm 21. Someone on here even though I was a kid.. I get that quite often curse my baby face.
@Bobby and yeah true, sometimes at my lowest I can drop to 5'10.5 other times I've gotten 5'10.75 it really depends, Ima keep doing these stretches and what not see if I can notice any increases even if its reaching a higher then usual low. I would love to be a strong 5'11/ weak 6ft. *Sigh*
Canary said on 19/Apr/17
@Bobby & Canson: It really is fine to claim your high or your low as your height. The arguments here sound borderline autistic, to tell the truth. Bobby, you're definitely 5'10. Maybe it's time to ignore certain people and talk about other things since no one (in the real world) would argue with you.

Thanks Sally, yes I can say it's enjoyable to be tall, although their are some setbacks but ultimately I think being tall is a unique and fun life experience.it's intriguing to know you're son is a good bit taller than me I don't know anyone taller let alone a 6'8 guy. Do you know if he's still growing seeing as he's my age and I'm still growing.
Peter 179cm said on 19/Apr/17
@ Bobby You're almost/weak 5'10,get over it.If you want to claim 5'10 fine it's not a big round up but saying you only lose about 1.5cm at 200 pounds which is abit more than i weigh (197 pounds) doesn't sound "right" to me.
Bobby said on 19/Apr/17
@Michael R, on a typical day, that's my mid afternoon range, I measured this after five hours and some minutes actually. I'm not lying by claiming 5'10, because I'll measure it after 4 hours still, keep in mind that I'm 0.3 inches taller than a flat 5'10 in the morning. Besides, Rob would still list someone at X height if they are X height and 7/8s. For you Michael, you are 6'2 in the afternoon, but you made an extreme low measurement video, what did you think you'd be listed at? If you made an afternoon or morning Measurement, you could request to be listed at a flat 6'2. It's not unrealistic or unreasonanble for you. I could claim my morning height if I wanted to, because it's a valid measurement but I don't.

Kaneff 6'0.25 said on 19/Apr/17
@Houss

I think it is roughly a 2.25 inches difference in that pic. And yes your brother might grow a little bit more, like 1cm. I grew 1cm between 19 and 22 so it is possible.
G 5'11 said on 19/Apr/17
@Houss your brother looks a weak 5'10, seems more 5'9.5 In that picture. So I would say about 2.5 inches difference as he is looking at the end of your nose. As for him growing, highly unlikely as most males stop growing by 19, only very few grow into their early 20's. So if he hasn't grown in the past year he's probs done.
G 5'11 said on 19/Apr/17
@Michael R that's irrelevant because different people have different claims. Someone who wakes up a weak 6'1 might claim 6'1 another night claim 6 foot, it's perfectly fine to claim any height that you measure throughout the day, or if you prefer claim the average between the 3 heights.
Bobby said on 19/Apr/17
@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN), for the last damn time. I did not use a magnifying glass, I used math and a metric ruler. Is that precise number somehow troubling to you? By the way, I've been up since 7AM today (exam day) and I've been up for 5 hours, walking around, sitting down on occasion, but mostly on my feet. I measured myself and was 177.4cm, so hadn't reached my low yet. Yeah right you have my stats, in your dreams. I still measure taller than you at my EXTREME low. So I'm like 5'9 and 7/8s after 5 hours of being on my feet mostly. What do you think of that? Still think I'm lying about my 5'10 claim? As for my age, you're being superficial. Who the heck cares if I look older, or younger, or whatever. Guess what, we all age, and no one keeps their youth or their appearance forever. Please do some maturing before you respond to this. Whether I'll 5'9 in my advanced years is still better than being 5'2. So in answer to your question, you're not taller than I am.
@G 5'11, Yeah, if I managed to shoot up by 25 or so, and measure 10.75 range at night, I'll just claim 5'11. It's not much of a round up. I'd prefer 5'11.5 to 6ft range though but I'd take a textbook 5'11 as well.

c-mo said on 19/Apr/17
I have a friend that is 184cm (I once measured him) . but what I dont understand is that he is not much taller than me and we are almost eye to eye no joke . he looks more like 180-181cm (I am a strong 176cm) . dont know why that is ...maybe because of proportions ? he doesnt have stumpy proportions though . he is slim and has not the widest bones/shoulders maybe thats why . in any case when I said that 182-183cm is the best height I didnt mean it in this way like my friend is . I mean his height is still great but given that when you are not lanky and have such proportions as my friend where you look even a bit shorter then the perfect height would be 187cm or something . however when you have a rather big built and proportions that make you seem a little taller than you are then 180-184cm is the best range to be

mr x you are most likely around 6ft
Canson said on 19/Apr/17
@Bobby: I personally feel anything after maybe 3-4 hours on your feet is fair game. At that stage you're really only about 1/8-1/4" above your low. For me it's under 1/8 unless I am very active. Yes you are 5'10 if you hold it as long as you do. For me personally I claim 6'4" since it's closer to my low than I am to 6'5". So really it's whatever floats your boat like Canary said. I have the problem when others try to inflate people because they lie or claim otherwise tho.

LOL@ Christian: this is in your honor!!
Canson said on 18/Apr/17
@Christian: well said what you mentioned below about rejection going both ways. That's one reason why at your height 6'5" is probably more ideal than 6'6" especially since you're closer to it. I guess in that scenario tho she would've rejected you regardless since you aren't her desires 6'3". That's fine everyone has a preference. But it also shows that if you aren't a pro athlete what I've said many times that anything above 6'0" really is good enough height and once in the 6'4-6'5 range it isn't any different to claim any higher truthfully meaning there is no benefit. And that exists at any height really. A claim is just a claim. If you stood next to a true 6'3 claiming 6'5" like your coworker you mentioned once you would clearly edge him and most with common sense would call him out (I would). I had a coworker like that two in my last position that was a strong 6'3 and claimed 6'5 until after someone asked me and I told them I'm 6'4 and change. Of course he tried to inflate me and After offering to go down to the nurse that all changed to "I'm almost 6'5 in shoes). Still not even that much was 6'4.5 tops in dress shoes maybe even closer to 6'4.25.

Canson said on 18/Apr/17
@Canary: well said. That actually is true given most people outside of this site claim a height whenever measures usually rounded up. It can look suspect next to someone else who "looks" different and that's in both ways. I claim 6'4" as it's my personal preference even tho I'm 1/3" over it (because that's how I'm known and have claimed most of my adult life either 6'4/6'4 1/2)
Canary said on 18/Apr/17
@Nik: I was referring to different areas of the USA. Some of them tend to be taller or shorter than ordinary regions, and many of the height differences are caused by ethnicity or income. Sally lives in a region that's taller than other American regions. Most residents there have Scandinavian ancestry. Areas, with a lot of Latinos and Latinas, tend to be short. Sally's region will be appreciably taller than the short region. The differences, between both genders' heights, could very well be up to four inches! Picture a 5'6 woman next to a 5'2 woman.

Income plays a role too. My city has an upper-income section and a lower-income section. It's mostly white, but many ethnicities can be found here. Things are a bit different than the earlier example, though. Income seems to be more of a factor than ethnicity in determining height. You find many petite (short and thin) younger women in the lower-income section, and I work with many of them, but you don't find as many of them in the upper-income section. It's not unheard of to see Asian women tower white women if the former live in upper-income regions while the latter live in lower-income regions. Stereotypes go out the window!
Bobby said on 18/Apr/17
@Greek, you must be an ectomorph. I could recommend some exercises and dieting methods for you to fill out. Your height is fine, but honestly even Beau from 7ftVlogs is healthy at his height, so I feel so long as a person doesn't exceed that height, they'd be healthy. Anyway, you should focus on high protein, and high fat foods, such as Greek yogurt, almonds, eggs, et al. Especially eat before bed to avoid catabolism. You also want to focus on large body exercises, which means targeting every muscle at once.

@Anthony K,wow,that's an interesting change. Could you describe (or send a link) to your posture routine? It's really high time I fixed my posture as well. My dad has been diagnosed scoliosis and based on his posture (we are similar on that matter)I'm dangerously close to the point of no return. It would be awesome if I only lose 0.6 cm from my morning height-184 is a height I'd be perfectly content with.
177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN) said on 18/Apr/17
Hey guys,
if measured by myself (aerosol can) I rise at 178.4cms. As of 2017 my normal evening low is 176.5cms, the lowest I experienced is 175.8cms...
I changed the accuracy of my measurements, i still use a spirit level and mirror to make sure I look straight ahead 90Β°, but instead of busting a gut I take a deep breath out (so I drop almost the half of an inch in comparison military posture). For hair and socks I did substract 2mms.
But I do not go as far as using a magnifying glass like Bobby 178.57 lol .57.57.57...

So I have virtually the same stats as Bobby, do you guys think after a match of soccer I'd measure taller than him - measured properly?

G 5'11 said on 18/Apr/17
@Bobby yeah for sure. 5'11.5 would be nice but a weak 5'11 is the next best thing. I really wish I could have reached a strong 5'11/6 foot but I definitely could have been shorter. I believe my father was either 5'10 or 5'11 in his prime.
@Anthont K yeah me too, I'm doing that so I can hold 5'11 longer through out the day. I also heard something about this supplement you can take, it's not going to add inches but might add a fraction over time it's like for joint pain, but you're supposed to stretch whilst talking it and what not. So who knows maybe I'll get a small fraction of height permanently. Or if not worst comes to worst it's worth a shot but a lot of people noticed they gained a little bit of height while talking it.

I have a knack for stating the obvious...haha! It is great to hear that you are supportive of your brother. I hope he is supportive of you too. A strong family is a valuable asset.

Good comment, but I don't think that a sister being 13.5" shorter than her brother is on the same level as a brother being 14" shorter than his brother, because women are on average shorter than men. A 13.5" difference between a brother and a sister is about the equivalent to a 8.5" difference between two brothers.

For Bobby and Connor, I met a man at the local vitamin shop and I was talking about growing taller with vitamins and nutrients and he mentioned he was 6'0 tall and he was a guy who clearly was 6'0,75 at night I even asked and he said I'm not 6''1 so why would he say he isn't. Another example is my uncle who thought he was 6'1 his whole life because he had a earlier doctors appointment. Turns out he is 6'0.5 at night 6'1.25 morning and now he claims 6'0 after I measured him. Your body is not 5'10 or 6'0 you guys are 5'11 and 5'9

Bobby you look 10years older than your true age, odds are against you mate. If I have to bet money I'd rather bet on 5ft 9 than 5ft 11 in 2020 - you'll rather shrunk than grow a single mm!
James Edward Crowley Maximus Meridi said on 18/Apr/17
Rob do people stop getting their height measured by the doctors in their early 20's and mid 20's the absolute age limit for human growth is 25 most humans stop growing between 19 and 22 on average when humans stop producing growth hormone that makes them grow taller does that mean they should getting their height by the doctors.
Editor Rob: it's useful getting measured by a Dr or Nurse as you age, to see any changes...

@shiva

6' flat is what Connor would look and be listed as if he was a celebrity and Rob met him at a convention. I'm talking a normal day at 1-3pm, not sleep deprived and being dehydrated on purpose after weight lifting and standing up for 12 hours straight. Going by such an extreme low is silly, it's almost as bad as claiming an out of bed height. 99% of the time nobody is going to see you at that height. We would have to downgrade every celebrity on the site by 0.25"-0.5" if we're to go by Michael R's standards because I doubt any of them made sure to do his little regimen before showing up on set to film or going to a convention.
Csimpson 6ft said on 18/Apr/17
Shiva 5ft 11.75 is my EXTREME low height not my normal everyday low height...im only 5ft 11.75 at night from a lot of heavy lifting, exercise and from lack of sleep, for god sake how many times do I have to explain myself! I AM a legit 6ft I am that height for most of the day and my REAL low height is 5ft 11 and 7/8ths thats only 1/8th off at worst, also I actually got measured at 6ft flat today at the gym from being out of bed at 8am and been on my feet from that time to 3pm so ha!

Rob has even listed me at 6ft on the user heights page and I even have proof of me measuring a good 6ft and 1/8th in a measurement video which Rob has also posted on there, watch it for yourself but seriously your argument is pointless if im not 6ft Rob wouldnt have even listed me at that height, I am 6ft get over it!
Bobby said on 18/Apr/17
@Csimpson 6ft, some people have nothing better to do than nitpick details that have virtually no significance in actual everyday life. I remember a user going by the name Josh, asking Rob if he could claim 6'1 with a low of 6'0 and 7/8s. Rob said he absolutely could. I also remember another user (his name escapes me for the moment) saying that he had a low between 172.5 to 172cm. He asked Rob if he could still claim 5'8. Rob said that for his stats, it was still reasonable to claim 5'8. So, I don't see why anybody has a problem with me claiming 5'10.
Canson said on 18/Apr/17
@Shiva: my opinion too is that if someone is under 1/2" at their lowest like 1/8" or 1/4" that they should round down or just claim the "change" over half is roundeable
Canson said on 18/Apr/17
@Kaneff: I feel it is standout. I can always tell after seeing shoes and posture of course if someone is really 6'4" or not. I give the benefit of the doubt if they're maybe 1/2" shorter or so than me. That's still 6'3.75 on up. 6'3.5 is fair enough imho (if it is your lowest) to claim 6'4 but just won't always look it. It's these 6'3 guys like Conan claiming it that make it not as impressive same with Rock who's not really that near 6'3" at his lowest (maybe 6'2.25). This is why when you see someone like Howard stern why it looks even less common at 6'5 because he really is that height. Probably is nothing less at his lowest and if he is it's not noticeable. Maybe prime he was a hair over or 1/4-1/2 over
Canson said on 18/Apr/17
@Shiva: in CM that's actually exactly what I'd claim is 194. I guess feet I could say that. I used to say 6'4 1/2 (still do a lot) but now 6'4" and some change or little over 6'4.
Michael R said on 18/Apr/17
@shiva I'm 16 years old. grown like almost 5 inches in the last year and a half I think
Bobby said on 18/Apr/17
@Canary, I personally do not care, and always will say, 5'10 because that is a valid measurement, I could even claim I am a touch under 5'10.5 to people because I measure that in the morning.

Yeah Bobby the differences in those pics actually look virtually the same height, especially with the comparison of my height with my low height and arthur and Michael say im not a true 6fter just because i only fall 1/8th of a inch below at night? Lol
Arthur said on 18/Apr/17
@Peter 179 cm

Nai re ellhnas eimai hahaha. I actually held that with 3 other people, not five as you said. If you haven't ever held that, you don;t know what kind of pressure you feel on your spine. It's really really heavy. Trust me. And it's not only carying it on a straight line. You have to go up and down the stairs of the church with that thing on your hands. I have reached my absolute lowest all the times I've carried that thing. Last year I got about 177.9 cm, this year my spine held 178.0 cm or hair more, so that's my extreme low, 178.0 cm.
shiva 181 cms said on 18/Apr/17
@ kaneff ,Connor Simpson isn't legitimate 6' guy like Alex ,
A legitimate 6' guy should wake up at least 185 cms and could drop down to 182.5cms
But he wakes at 184 cms and sys he drops to 5'11.75 at his lowest but imo if he did what Michael r said he'd be down to 181.5cms ,he isn't a legit 6'
Heck, even I wake up at 184cms and drop to 181.5 at lowest and claim 5'11.5 mostly but in the afternoon I'm around 5'11.75 and would hold 6' up to max 2 hrs maybe out of bed
shiva 181 cms said on 18/Apr/17

Been doing basic stretching and yoga to work on my posture and stay at my max height the last couple weeks. Its actually does strench you out a bit. I used to lose about 0.50 to 0.75 inchs by night now its only been around 0.25 the last couple nights. No wonder Rob always says stand straight. I hope working on my posture and standing straight can keep me at around 183 centimeters. Ive had poor posture most of my life. Im tying to change that.
Greek said on 17/Apr/17
@Canson and Bobby I'm trying but problem is im still growing i grow about 2 inches every year. its hard to weight to put on weight with a small frame. I'm depressed about it wanna put weight fast. Also I'm usually the tallest person I see in stores. But there was a time I saw two men who must have been 6ft10+ each on the same day. I wouldnt wanna be that tall tho. These men had very big leg and eyes.
Sally (strong 5'11") said on 17/Apr/17
@Jansen: Hello, I hope you saw my comment to you from the 15th of April. You may also be interested in my response to insomniak. I want to encourage you to practice walking tall and feeling confident about your height. For most of my life I walked around slouching and feeling as if I was "different" than others. I was painfully shy. Then I made a conscious effort to feel confident and proud of my height. You may think this is impossible; but if you practice feeling confident and proud long enough, it will eventually become a natural feeling.
Good luck!!
Kaneff 6'0.25 said on 17/Apr/17
@Canson

Hey thanks for your reply, I skimmed over it by accident just saw it now. Pretty much confirms what I felt about 6'4" being a standout, rather uncommon height. There's definitely a lot of fake 6'4" guys out there.
Sally (strong 5'11") said on 17/Apr/17
@insomniak: Hello, you asked me, "What would you think of a 197cm guy such as myself?" and "Do you think it's a good height or too tall for dating?" At the risk of sounding extremely superficial and shallow if this man was age-appropriate and interested in dating me, I would think I either won the dating lottery or had died and gone to Heaven...haha! Now, while height is definitely the first thing I notice, I am wise enough to realize there are many more important qualities to consider in a partner such as a sense of humor, intelligence, and kindness. I would definitely be attracted to a man shorter than me if we shared common interests and I enjoyed talking with him. Sadly, it doesn't seem like many shorter men are interested in dating me. This greatly limits my potential dating pool. While I like to believe I am attractive, intelligent, and kind, men do not seem to be throwing themselves at my feet. I do believe individuals in my area are a smidge taller than the U.S. average, but I am still an outlier. Living in a small community doesn't help matters. I guess I'm doomed. How do you like being tall? From my perspective it seems like it might be easier as a tall man than a tall woman.
Bobby said on 17/Apr/17
Sorry, want to add as well, I meant 5'9 and 3/4s, not 3/8s, whatever it is in fractions. 5'9.76 I mean.
Canary said on 17/Apr/17
I don't see why people worry about their "real height" or their "true height". You can claim any height that you measure at some time each day. That should be a personal decision based on personal preference, and it's not dishonest at all. No one remotely cares in real life, anyway.

Rob Im an 18 year old male from the UK and i wake up around 5'10.25. Most days I finish a little over 5'9.5. Maybe 5'9.5 flat after an active day. What height do I give when asked? Also what would I be listed as here and am i average?
Editor Rob: say 177cm, if they are stuck in feet/inches and go 'huh', you could respond 'almost 5ft 10'
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
@Bobby and Christian:

I don't know tho. In my case (I'm almost identical to Christian just an inch shorter). I wake up almost identical in the 6'5 range where he would in the 6'6" range. But don't come down as low (1/3 vs 1/4) unless I go to the gym then it's 6'4.25 (I verified over the weekend). Other days I can still hold 194 if sedentary or reclined but otherwise 193.9 is dead on at 4 or 5pm and stays that way. When I tried it the other day.

Out of bed 195.8
After 1 hour 194.9
2: 194.6
3: 194.4
4: 194.3 (6'4.5)
5: 194.1-.2
7: 194
8: 193.9 (usually my lowest as well) sometimes I can hold 194 at 8 hours still
Evening after Gym: 193.7 (6'4.25)

I don't look as much at mean as I do the height that you measure the longest period (barring anything out of the ordinary). Reason I say that is in the example Christian used 6'5 5/8 is a measurement when you are still coming down

Sally what would you think of a 197cm guy such as myself? Do you think it's a good height or too tall for dating.also I'm 18 same as your son.

-----

Being around that height myself, I can speak from experience that it's obviously not the ideal height, but I believe most women will rather be with a 197cm man than 157cm. There was once where a girl told me that she would've dated me only if I was a few inches shorter. When I asked her why, she reluctantly said she wasn't really interested in guys who were over 6'3". This proves that short guys aren't the only ones rejected for their height.

@Canary

You and your friends must have a lot of fun! It's really good to hear about stories like this and they are a welcome addition to this website. I believe that the 5'2" - 5'6" range is the most congested height range for women where I live in England, but there are many outliers, so yes it sounds similar to what it is like in the USA. What sort of average would you expect in the very smallest and the very tallest regions? Also when you are talking about regions you are referring to areas with what sort of population (inc men)? I will then be able to work out myself the likely number of women that there are in a region.

Bobby said on 17/Apr/17
@G 5'11, for now, 5'11.5 is my goal, whether in the morning or in the evening, I'd need to grow 1.5 inches to hit that height, don't know how likely that would be though, even though I grew .3 inches this past year. With the right shoes, I'd be over 6ft though, but being that height barefoot would be nice. I don't see it likely for me to grow 4 inches at my age, but I might get fortunate and follow in my father's footsteps and grow into 5'11. A lot of adult height predictors said my adult height would be 5'11.5, but people reach adult height at varying ages. Rob reached his at 14 years old from what I've read, which is strange, I was still growing at that age.
Bobby said on 17/Apr/17
@Michael R, you are trying to sabotage us... and for the record, I did only get about 4 hours of sleep due to strep throat, brutal night. Aches pains, fever, and chills... not good. I ended up waking up with my low, rather than my morning height. So I was 9.75 range for that day, which was a Monday. I didn't measure myself when I got home, but chances are I went down to my extreme low that day. Further, I've lifted weights, and done cardiovascular for well over an hour and been on my feet with work as well, and measured at my low earlier than usual. However, I have never gone down to, nor will I ever go down to, just over 5'9 and a quarter. Stop being frosty Michael, Rob has spoken already. I hold 5'10 reasonably well throughout the day, what's your problem? Does that somehow annoy you? I go down 1.3cm on an average day, and 1.6 on rare, arduous days. I've got a strong back too, so when I lift weights, I'm not using a lot of my efforts. If I worked on a farm, chances are I may hit a low further than my extreme, may go down to a flat 9.5 but if that doesn't happen normally, why would I downgrade myself? I don't think you understand human anatomy Michael, everybody's shrinkage is different. Peter wakes up at 181.6 and goes down to a flat 179, and in some cases, 178.5cm... he loses a lot more than he actually should, that kind of loss is more reflective of someone your stature. Now, csimpson is 5'11 and 7/8s at his low which means he's only 1/8 of an inch off, this means he's 182.54cm at his low. I'll show you an image comparing his low to a flat 6ft, and you tell me if you see a BIG difference or not. Here's the image: Click Here

Now, I know I've shown you a comparison of my low and a flat 5'10 but I'll show it to you again for demonstration purposes, because my low is 5'9 and 3/8s. Here's the image comparing my low to a flat 5'10 (my afternoon height), and you tell me if you see a BIG difference or not.
Here's the second comparison of my low versus a flat 5'10: Click Here

Do you see a big difference in either comparison image? I don't, at least, I'm sure I don't. Who knows, maybe I need a new prescription.

PS: You wake up at almost 6'3 Michael, taller statured people will lose more height throughout the day. I'm under six feet tall, why would I lose an inch in height? I only lose 0.5 inches.
Kaneff 6'0.25 said on 17/Apr/17
@Michael R

lol it just sounds comical what you're suggesting people should do in order to claim a height... Just accept that Connor is a legit 6ft not everybody shrinks 1.25 inches or even a full 1 inch. That is a lot to lose unless you're over 6ft and have a long torso.
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
@Arthur: well said. I am similar (different range of course) in that I could claim 196 at a sneak, but it's a lie imho. I'm 195.8 out of bed 193.9 at a normal low but have gotten as low as 193.1/193.2 before. Where I live (in the US) it's inches. I say I'm 6'4 or 6'4 and change or half if I need to get specific with someone. Don't see why someone "needs" to claim a certain number esp if it's higher than what they walk around at. That is your true height. And if you're 178.5 after 6 hours that's about your real height. So rounding down is fine
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Apr/17
@ Jansen - They feel small next to you because they most certainly are!
I always think it a good indication of 'towering over' people when you can see over their heads! That can be a trifle embarrassing for the shortster if he or she has dandruff or if the person's roots need doing!
Luckily for you, you're never likely to experience that!
Arthur said on 17/Apr/17
@c-mo

I can hold 179.0 cm up until about 3 hours out of bed. After that I am between 178.5 and 179 cm. The other day I went to the gym and got back home and measured myself at exactly 178.5 cm, after 6 hours of being out of bed.
It's ok c-mo, I don't really care to claim 179 cm. I mean, I could claim 178, 179, 180 or even 181 since at some point in the day I measure all these heights (well 181 not that often but you get what I am saying). I am a 178-179 cm guy, I just claim 178 cm since I am between 178.0-178.5 cm at night, and it's closer to 178 than 179. If I were to claim something other than 178 cm, I would just claim 180 cm as I actually do a lot of the time. I either claim ''about 180 cm'' or ''178 cm'', and I am pretty fine with both claims.
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
@Christian: I agree. For you 6'5.5 is fair really or 6'50 and change. I guess 6'6" for rounding purposes. I just round to 6'4" because at these heights we are both already very tall and I use my height after 5-7 which I'm closer to 6'4" than 5.
Michael R said on 17/Apr/17
Bobby and csimpson both need to spend days where they only sleep 4-5 hours, have minimal hydration and do intense gym workouts and lifting of weights. Then after being on your feet for 12 hours you will see you drop an inch at least from your morning. So for you Bobby you would be 5'9.3 under such circumstances or even a bit lower, and Connor would be around 5'11 and a half under such. Under such circumstances myself being up for 16 hours and doing multiple workouts with only moderate hydration and poor nights sleep before found I can drop to 6'1.25 and the next day after a good nights rest and some water throughout the night recharge to 6'2.5
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
@C-Mo: you answered your own question. Why can't he claim his high or his low? Yes people do lie all the time or claim higher so what is the issue with him claiming his low versus his high? It's just a number like I said. What does "every centimeter counts" mean? It's not a competition it's his height it's a characteristic about him. He's happy with what he is so don't see an issue. People get too wrapped up in "claiming a higher number". People's perceptions of height vary from one to the next so some will see him as 178 others more. People claim either of those numbers. In my case no I cannot claim 196 because I'm not. I could get away with 195 but why when I appear 6'4" more so than 6'5" in the afternoon especially if I'm in a casual shoe where I'm barely over 6'5 in them.

G 5'11 said on 17/Apr/17
@Scott I feel like you just said that to get a reaction out of people. Yeah nobody would go with 5ft 10 if they measure 5'10.5-.75 at their low just round up to 5 ft 11, especially since they are close enough to that height+ foot wear even though it doesn't count still kind of helps the claim if they measure it at some point.
Csimpson 6ft said on 17/Apr/17
Yeah Christian Rob has bobby listed at 5ft 10 flat on the user heights page infact so Rob obviously agrees that he is that height, case closed.
Jackson said on 17/Apr/17
@Scott
If you are 5'10.75 before bed why the heck would you claim 5'10?
You are 5'11 MOST of the day. Wouldn't that be more accurate? I'm roughly 5'10.5 before bed and I still claim 5'11, since I am that height in the early afternoon and 1/2 inch round up shouldn't be a crime

Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@C-Mo: and why should Arthur claim 179 when he's 178 range (lower 178) at his lowest? He is 178 after all.

-----------------------------------------------------------

what kind of argument is "he is 178 after all" ? if we go by that logic then I can say "he is 180.5cm after all" since he is that height too at a time (out of bed) . I bet he is 179cm after being awake for 5-6 hours . so how is he 178cm according to you but not 179cm ...only because he falls to it at the end of the day and this only in extreme cases even ..after a good sleep he is not 178-178.5 cm anymore

why should he claim his low ? let alone his extreme low . many guys even lie about their height and add at least 1-2 inches so what reason is there to take the height you are after many hours being on your feet and having done heavy physical stuff ? seems very far stretched to me . this has nothing to do with modesty anymore either but it is rather just silly in my opinion . like what are you trying to prove ?

in your case it doesnt matter much if you claim 194 195 196 because you are very tall either way and it doesnt make much difference . but at our height every centimeter "counts" and I dont see the reason why we should take our low/extreme low .

Hi, I was hoping to gain more info about how tall I would be. I use to be pretty tall when I was young (5'3 at 11, 5'7 at 12, 5'8.25 at 13). From 13 to 14 I only grew 0.25 of an inch and hit 5'8.5. However, in the past 9 months, I have grown 0.75 inches and I am currently 5'9.25. I'm going to turn 15 in 3 months. Is there a chance I could hit 6' by the time I am done growing? My father is 5'10, my mother is 5'3, and my brother is 5'9.5. I am an Indian male living in America.
179cm said on 16/Apr/17
@Scott

Dude we've discussed that on this site many times, it's completely fine to call yourself 'about/almost 6'0" if you fall a fraction below. You don't have to go to the other extreme of downgrading yourself to 5'11".
Bobby said on 16/Apr/17
@Scott, Scott, why on earth would somebody who measures 10.75 at night, downgrade themselves to a flat 5'10? It makes more sense, and is actually fair to say, 5'11. You can be precise and say that, but in everyday life, people who measure that range, will in all practicality round up to 5'11.
Bobby said on 16/Apr/17
@Christian-196.8cm (6ft5.5)Noon, I also claim a mean or middle height, which is my afternoon height. Your afternoon height is when most majority of people will see you as well. So claiming your afternoon height is acceptable, and if you're a touch under that height at night, there's no shame or anything deceiving in rounding up the full inch, especially if you fall 4-6mm under, even 7mm, in some cases. And yeah, about me being listed 5'10 flat, Rob does have me listed as that on the user page since I measure 5'10 flat in the afternoon, and only start to dip under in the middle to late afternoons, and will measure 9.75 from early to late evenings. This is all on average days of course.

@Nik: I lifted and carried girls at work, but this particular event happened at the gym. It was around the weight machines. I carried the girls on my hips. Like I said, they were very tiny. Yes, I felt like a giantess next to them. As for height variation here, it often depends on ethnicity and region. The 5'2 to 5'6 range is very common throughout most places. It's probably the same where you live.

Jke 168cm said on 16/Apr/17
@Scott

Why would you do that? It's less accurate for a guy that's 5 ft 10.75 to claim 5 ft 10 than 11. Just say almost 5 ft 11 or just say 5 ft 11
Peter 179cm said on 16/Apr/17
@ Arthur You're Greek as well? Lege re ti leei xD! As far as carrying around that weight on Great Friday it's no big deal since you share the weight with 5 more men.It's not really the weight it's the distance actually that makes it kinda exhausting.Also 178.2 was an absolute low i normally wont ever measure on normal circumstances but it was a valid measurement so at lowest i'd still be 179 range.

Rob, when you look at this photo are you really convinced Brahim is solid 8 ft plus guy Click Here??
Editor Rob: yes he can look very tall, even with another very big guy too.
G 5'11 said on 16/Apr/17
And guys I hope you know that the only people who are exact and precise about claiming an x height are celeb height visitors! Never ever have I heard somebody say something along the lines of " no you are not 6 foot, you are definitely 5'11.5-.75 range at best during the noon " when somebody claims 6 foot, if they are close to the mark then most people will just go with it. But not like if someone who's barely 5ft 10 claims 6 foot that's a completely different story. Most people in real life get measured in the mornings and just use that height or round up.
G 5'11 said on 16/Apr/17
@Alvaro, I grew about a half inch at 17. Which sucks because I know some people who grew between 3-5 all about luck/genetics.
@Michael R, okay well you're already tall 6'1/6'2 is my ideal height so obviously you'd be content with claiming either one of those figures. But no one would really call you out if you claimed 6'1.5/6'2.
@Peter 179cm yeah you're out of bed height is more then mine, but I think we reach about the same figures towards noon time/lows. Still shocked you don't claim 180. But I feel you. Happy Easter to you as well. πŸ‘Œ
@Bobby yeah true a strong 5'11 is great height and most people just say they are 6 foot. Yeah I'm about 6 foot in shoes and sometimes I'll feel a bit tall other times shorter depending who I am with/coming across (but I know I'm not short in general) I'm just saying lol.
Christian-196.8cm (6ft5.5)Noon said on 16/Apr/17
Not saying everyone should follow my ideology, but I think it's best to claim a height that is the mean of morning and night heights. For example, I'm a hair over 6'6" out of bed, and exactly 6'5.25" before bed. The mean of those two measurements would be about 6'5 5/8", so this is one of the reasons why I claim 6'6", I just round up from 6'5 5/8", but sometimes I claim 6'5.5" as well.
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@Sally5'11: thanks! That's interesting what your son said but I've seen it varies from person to person. Me personally if you gave me a choice between 5'5" and 6'4" I'm definitely taking 6'4". And I'd still definitely take 6'5" over 5'5" (I'm not far away from 6'5" now as is). Now above 6'5" not sure. I think 6'6" I'd take over 5'5" but it gets gray after that. I really wouldn't want to be more than that as it's problematic height even 6'6" would be most likely as shoe selection to keep from hitting doorways is limited at that stage. I feel 5'5" is a bit on the short side for a guy but that vs 7'0" tall I'd have to live with being 5'5". Now your son at 6'8" the best thing for him is to embrace but also to put on some muscle and especially his core. I've always been an athletic 6'4" guy so I'm in good shape but have a friend 2" taller while a former athlete himself at 6'6" let his core go to waste and has had bad back problems in the past (he's better now tho). He may have been a hair over 6'6" peak like 6'6.25 but with ruptured disc he lost some I think. He had all types of issues with his alignment and core and was weak in many areas as a result. Key focus to the glutes abs abductors hammy etc. yep I do have a sister she's 5'8" herself. We have a tall father tho. He's 6'4" as well and may have been a hair over 6'4 prime (he's 6'3.75-6'4 still at 68 years old). Odd tho because my mom is 5'4-5'5
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@C-Mo: and why should Arthur claim 179 when he's 178 range (lower 178) at his lowest? He is 178 after all. Maybe in reality he's more 178.4-.5 for his true height on a normal day but still the same he's ok doing that. I see what you're saying if someone wanted to claim that it's fine but he's fine with 178. I commend Arthur as he is precise and isn't into lying about his height (stat frauding). Side note I am almost 196 (195.8-.9) out of bed and am over 6'5 by a small hair when I wake up. However I am 193.9 at about 4-5 pm and stay that height until bedtime. Some days if I lift or go to the gym I hit 193.7 and have been as low as 193.2 before in abnormal cases. Now for me I'd claim 194 if I used metric but I live in the states and just say 6'4" typically or 6'4 and change if someone near height is around me sometimes even 6'4.5 (I claimed that for the longest time). It's all about being content with who you are. Arthur is 5'10 anyway you look at it even if a bit stronger of a 5'10"
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@G 5'11" that is the worst lol. It's frustrating to me as I don't believe in embellishment or exaggeration for no reason. I mean height is a number after all. It's no worse tho than a 6'3" guy claiming 6'5 a 6'0" claiming 6'2". Somewhere along the lines some napoleon complex insecure guy thought that it'd be a good idea to say height in shoes for a public height where in reality shoes aren't part of your body. It's gotten so bad that some lazy ass doctors and nurses (mainly nurses) don't make people take their shoes off anymore. I had one last year that was measuring me and I was taking them off and she said you don't have to do that. I ignored her and said ma'am I am taking them off because I want an accurate reading from you
Bobby said on 16/Apr/17
@Alvaro, I grew... 3.3 inches since 17 (I'm counting my growth spurt and the gradual 1 inch and a little over a quarter that I grew this past year.)

HonestSlovene said on 13/Apr/17
@Bobby IMO you are a weak 5'10" so on this site you would get listed at 5'9.75". But IRL you should for all practical purposes claim 5'10".

------

I think he would be listed as 5'10" flat, since Celebheights are based on afternoon heights (5-7 hours out of bed), and if Bobby's 5'9.75" at night, he may very well be 5'9 7/8" or 5'10" in the afternoon.
Kaneff 6'0.25" said on 16/Apr/17
@Alvaro

I grew about 1cm after age 19. Never measured my height at ages 17-18 unfortunately, but my night heights at other ages were the following

16: 180cm
17: don't know
18: don't know
19: 182.2cm
20: 182.6cm
21: 183cm
22: 183.3cm

I'm 23 now and probably not gonna grow anymore.
Scott said on 16/Apr/17
How people go on about cm and mm especially baffles the life out if me. If you're '5ft 10.75' before bed then claim 5ft 10. You don't hit 5ft 11 bench mark. Fact. So you're not 5ft 11 tall. I'm actually around 182.5 before bed, but I always claim 5ft 11 because I don't hit 6ft benchmark before bed. I would expect a 185 guy to claim 6ft also instead of 6ft 1.
Bobby said on 16/Apr/17
@Michael R, you're downgrading yourself half an inch though, and personally, you could still feasibly round up half an inch, most people usually do but it's ultimately a preference thing.
@grizz, the stats say that it was measured, not reported. I could easily self-report my height in shoes in the morning, and say 5'11.5, doesn't mean that I am though.
@Arthur, I get that but there's also no need to be anal about it. In everyday life, people wouldn't care. 6mm is insignificant really, it's barely visible. If I stood next to a flat 5'10 at my 9.75 low, we'd look the same height.
@Canson, no you misunderstand me, I said I was a touch under 5'10.5 at .3, so 5mm off the mark. I then lose 1.3cm on an average day, and get down to 5'9.75 at night, I'm the afternoon, especially early, I'd still measure 5'10. I checked, and it takes me around 2 or 3 hours to lose my morning height but I'm still over 5'10, just a touch below the quarter inch mark. When I came back home and measured my height around 11pm, I'd been on campus where I was mostly on my feet, I even spent about a half hour walking around the mall in the morning looking for a certain store to buy a video game. I had time to sit down to eat lunch, and whatnot, and spend time on Facebook, but I mostly walked around. Besides, sitting doesn't actually recover mm, it just slows down your shrinkage, doesn't stop it. Especially because your back is still doing work to keep you upright on the chair. Of course, during commute coming I had time to relax, so meaning, this was an average day for me. On an arduous day, working and lifting... I drop to my low faster, but I hold it quite well, unless I'm working really hard, then I'll lose more but it rarely happens. Yeah, if it's at your low, and you fall under by 6mm or less, it's still reasonable to claim the full inch. If self-proclaimed height expert Rob is cool with it, then it's not a big deal to do so.
@Sally (strong 5'11), you might occasionally see a woman at 5'7 but not close to 5'10 unless she's wearing heels. I've seen guys at 5'8 or so but I'm still taller than they are. From what I've gathered so far, even on campus, 5'10 is above average.
@G 5'11, my 6'5 friend was about average weight I'd say, maybe around 180 pounds or so. He was the tallest in our school, surprisingly enough, I felt more average in high school than I do in college. You probably have a fast metabolism if it's difficult for you to put on weight, there's not much you can do to get around that except to eat high fat and high protein meals. I've actually been meaning to put on more muscle, but I'll have to wait until exams are over next week.
Arthur said on 16/Apr/17
@Peter 179 cm
Peter, from what you are saying it seems you are exactly 1 cm taller than me. Those are my exact measurements when I do the same stuff you mentioned, only mine are 1.0 cm lower. Lol. Though I think you have said in the past that your extreme low was 178.2 cm? Cause that's a lot to lose if that's the case. My extreme low as I mentioned a few times is pretty much about 178.0 cm
Arthur said on 16/Apr/17
@Canson

No, my extreme low isn't while performing a usual activity. It occurs once a year, when I carry on my shoulders a maybe 250 pound weight together with 3 other people for a healthy distance. It's for religious reasons. This is what we bear on our shoulders once every year, 2 days before Easter. Click Here It's a Greek Orthodox custom, I am not really a religious person, but I do it to help the community. I managed to hold 178.0 cm after doing that at night, that's why I call 178.0 my extreme low. My usual low is 178.2 or 178.3 cm, on a good day 178.5 cm.

@Arthur

you dont make any sense . if your normal low is about 178.2 - 178.4 and your exteme low is 178cm then you should claim 179cm

even when you take feet and inches 178cm which is your exteme low is still slightly above 5'10 even . and you wake at 180.5cm ....how the f.. do you claim 2.5cm below your morning height as your height . claim 179cm buddy
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Apr/17
@ Sally - In all honesty, I don't think height comes into it when it comes to arm-wrestling - just general strength!
Those days I had a great deal of stamina! I remember walking 21 miles and popping into the pub to boast about my feat! No one believed me as I wasn't even sweating! Then someone added, "She does you know! She's always walking for miles! She lives down my road and I know her!"
That was many years ago and today I wouldn't beat anyone in an arm-wrestling match! Not one!
I am glad my stories entertain you! I often end up in stitches writing them! 😊
Nik said on 16/Apr/17
@Canary

I think you lifted those two girls at work didn't you? Don't do yourself down though, I mean to lift both of them at the same time is good going! How high did you lift them both? I bet some of your female friends will think you are giantess!. Do you think female height in America is very diverse?
G 5'11 said on 16/Apr/17
@canson at least it's not as bad as 6'2's claiming 6'4.
Peter 179cm said on 16/Apr/17
I also measured my height yesterday after having a rather active day.First of all out of bed i got 181.6cm after a typical 9-hour sleep for me.Then i started helping with cleaning and lifting things around my house but mainly cleaning up my gardens and carried some stuff.I did that for about 6 hours with maybe a 30-minute rest to eat something and then went on.After that i had a shower and then i proceed to measure again-i got 179.2cm with no surprise and after resting for a couple hours(actually i was just sitting in front of my PC and googled stuff xD) i recovered up to 179.7cm.This was around 11pm and my last measurement(about 13 hours out of bed).Anyways,enough about that-i wish a Happy Easter to you all and enjoy your holidays! πŸ˜‰
Sally (strong 5'11") said on 15/Apr/17
@Canson: Hello, you are very fortunate to be your ideal height. Yesterday I asked Clayton if he liked being tall. He said he would rather be 7' tall than 5'5" (He chose those heights randomly.) Without any prompting from me, he immediately came to his senses and changed his mind stating, "Being that tall would be tough." I rarely broach this subject with him because I don't want to encourage him to think negatively about his height. Although now I am wondering if I am just being negative, because he could just as easily think about the positive things associated with his height. Do you have siblings, specifically sisters? I am close to your female equivalent; because, according to this site, the average woman is about 5" shorter than the average man. Did you have growing pains. In 3rd grade, Clayton used to wake up crying. It was awful. I never experienced growing pains myself. I think I remember you commenting in a previous post about your teammates. What sport did you play? Do you live in a large community? We live in a small town. Clayton is the tallest guy in town. If I tell people that my son is the tall guy that works at our local grocery store, they immediately know who I am talking about. It's crazy.
Happy Easter!
Bobby said on 15/Apr/17
@Arthur, a person's low doesn't matter as much as his afternoon measurement. I claim a middle measurement, because I wake up a touch under 5'10.5, I hold 5'10 reasonably well throughout the afternoon. Why would I do that when I'm less than a quarter inch from my afternoon height at night? Keep in mind that a quarter inch is exactly 6.34mm, I'm only 6mm, sometimes even 5mm. If you wouldn't call me a liar for saying that I am 5'10, then I don't see the issue here.
@G 5'11, Yeah, I'm hoping I get to like 5'11.5 or something, that way I can be 6'0.5 with shoes on, and claim 6ft haha. I would claim 6ft at 5'11.5 though, that's what I did before when I thought I was in high school. Yeah, while grocery shopping today, I saw a shopper who was around 6'2 or something, despite the 4 inch difference, I didn't feel that much shorter than him. I've been called tall by a 6'5 guy before, at 5'10.
@Jackson, You're a believable 5'11, since claiming afternoon height is more accurate, you can for sure claim to be 5'11, no one will notice that missing quarter inch.
Canary said on 15/Apr/17
@Nik: I've posted here for at least a year. As for lifting two girls at the same time, it isn't a huge feat of strength. Both girls are tiny. One is just 4'11 and 87 pounds.
G 5'11 said on 15/Apr/17
@Jackson same, except at my ultimate low I never drop below 5'10.5 and sometimes even a little above that. I always say 5'11, because there's no point to wake up over 5'11 but round down all the way to 5'10 from your lowest.
@Anthony K anytime man, you're a chunk taller then me I'd consider you a weak 6ft, would be easier just to go with that rather then 5'11".5 but you know what's on you.
Álvaro said on 15/Apr/17

@bobby my ID lists me as 6-1 and since I measured my low and found out I drop below 6'2 now I claim 6-1 flat whenever asked. I don't feel a need to round up.
grizz said on 15/Apr/17
@Bobby, prove it.
The widely quoted mark of 183.8 cm for the Dutch men was a reported,not measured height. Their real measured height is 5'11 range. On the other hand, Herzegovinians were measured at 183.6 cm.
Jke 168cm said on 15/Apr/17

You certainly deserve rounded slightly for that 😘😘

@ G 5'11 - It's happened to me twice, but the reason for the second one was more than just vanity, and the person did 'own up'!
Arthur said on 15/Apr/17
@Bobby
I never said you shouldn't claim 5'10. I am just saying you are a weak 5'10, because you mentioned somewhere that you are a decent 5'10. If you go ahead in real life and claim 5'10, most people will believe you, some might mistake you for a bit taller too. But here in celebheights we pay attention to detail, everyone here claims their low mark, that's all I am saying. I think that 5'9 3/4 is an ok height for you to claim too, and is actually closer to the truth/more precise but you can claim whatever you feel most comfortable. I live in a country where we use the metric system, as I said before I am 178.0 cm at my most extreme low I have tested, 178.2 cm at night and 178.4 maybe in the afternoon. I just claim ''178 cm'' or sometimes ''about 180 cm''. If I were to use the Imperial system though, I'd claim either ''5'10 1/4'' or simply 5'10
Csimpson 6ft said on 15/Apr/17
Rob lets settle this argument with the trolls once and for all, do you agree that Bobby can say he is 5ft 10 if he is that height for most of the day and only falls just 6mm under it at his low?
Editor Rob: if you fall 6mm under, it's still not unreasonable to claim the full 5ft 10.

But, it's up to the individual themselves as to what they claim...always best being honest. Rounding up an inch is a bit cheeky, rounding up from your lowest of 5-6mm is far from cheeky.
Sally (strong 5'11") said on 15/Apr/17
@Jansen: Hello Jansen, I think you are a great height! If I was a male, my preferred height would be 6'4". 6'4" is definitely tall but not too tall. I think many men enjoy being tall. It is an admired masculine trait that many women like. I hope you become more confident with your height. If you walk with confidence, many men will be jealous/envious of you. Don't worry about your size men's UK 13 shoe size (unless it is difficult to find that size). I do realize that a 6'4" man where you live may be a bit more of an outlier than a 6'4" where I live though. Don't let it get you down, Jansen. As you mature, you will see that your height is just a small part of who you are. It's kind of ironic that I am giving you a pep talk when I have always hated my own height. I think it is harder for a tall woman though, because women are often admired for being petite and cute. You may or may not be interested in reading my past comments about my 6'8" 18-year-old son on this site as well as the Neil Fingleton site, and the Rob Paul site. Good luck!
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
@Bobby: if you're 5'9.75 that late it could just be an extreme low as well meaning you're still closer to 5'10 (5'9 7/8 or so) on a normal day. But is the 5'10.5 out of bed or just a measurement in the morning at some point? If it's out of bed you wouldn't still be 5'10 at lunchtime. Most people lose 1/2" in two hours. Worst case for someone under 6'0" maybe 3 hrs. You're out of bed must be higher than that and your low you mentioned may be even higher than that meaning if you aren't on your feet longer periods of time at night. I know from testing I come down to 193.9 usually from 195.8 out of bed but have seen 193.1 or .2 before as well on my feet out at night and measuring around 1am
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
@Arthur: extreme low is what you mentioned. Did you stand on your feet for a long time to get there or is that just under normal activity. What you said regarding Bobby tho he is fine claiming 5'10" of he hits 5'9.75. You're a strong 5'10". Now if you have two people or even you two next to each other I feel that At that point if back to back and you edged him out that about 5'10" for him would be appropriate because it's clear but otherwise there is no issue with it
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
@Kaneff: Jansen is practically identical with me maybe 1-2mm shorter or the same depending on some factors. I don't see people taller than me usually. I do have three taller friends one is an inch taller than me 196.4cm the other two 6'6 and 6'7. I agree that 6'4" is where that height begins where you don't see taller people but that is a true 6'4" at the lowest or above. You always get these 6'3-6'3.5 guys measuring early AM that claim 6'4" which is what makes it look smaller than it really is. Jansen just like me is probably guessed as 6'5 or even 6'6". I've been guessed 6'7" before and even one older person thought i was 6'8" when in reality I'm a weak 194 (193.7-193.9)
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
@Bobby: yes I agree with you. If I were 6'3.75 I'd still say 6'4" or if I were 6'4.75 I'd go 6'5. I'm a strong 6'4" (6'4 1/4-1/2 range) but it's not terrible finding clothes for me other than pants because of my inseam and waist. I'm proportionately built tho which is why. You're fine at 5'9.75 claiming 5'10 that's normal. And it's not weak. Weak would be 5'9.5-5'9.75 claiming it. All I was saying is at my height me claiming 6'5" is foolish (I am usually 195.8-.9 out of bed) but since I know it's not my real height and personally had I never been on this site I wouldn't even think or know I were that tall because I don't typically go to the doctor in the early morning either usually afternoon or late morning or at least a couple hours out of bed probably. Until I came on the site I said 6'4 1/2 because it's how I measured when I played ball in college and listed at 6'6. Never said I was 6'6" at any point but used to say I was 6'5" a long time back. Today it makes no difference tho.

@Bobby: Hello Bobby, you brought up something that I mentioned a few weeks ago. You said women are usually 5'3"-5'6" but men are all over the place from 5'4"-6'1". This is interesting to me. In my area (Central Wisconsin) most young women are 5'4"-5'7" and young men are 5'9"-6'. While there are definitely outliers from both groups, it seems that there are way more male outliers than female outliers. Nik disagreed with me. Of course, I have not studied this very closely :)

@ Sandy: You are so much fun! I love how you were able to beat two tall men in arm-wrestling matches. In no way do I want to take anything away from your amazing feat of strength, but do you think shorter people may have an arm-wrestling advantage? I only ask this because I am not a particularly good arm-wrestler. Even though I have had success against my 14-year-old son and almost beat my ex-husband, I have had women beat me when I believed I was physically stronger than them. Maybe I am just a sore loser...haha!

@Bobby well I used to be friends with a legit 6'4 guy and he was skinny as **** so most people would think he's 6'5-6'6, he was easily the tallest almost everywhere he went. Yeah 6'1 would be perfect or 6'2 better yet. And yeah same I have really long arms and legs and my arm span is pretty long for my height it's about 6'1 or 6'2. Got a good reach haha. Nice though I wish I was 200 pounds, I have trouble gaining weight I'm closer to 160, oh well.

@Bobby

Yes, if you and I have gotten 'tall' comments when we're both sub 180cm then clearly this whole 6 feet standard does not exist.

I don't see it as dishonest for someone to give themselves the extra fraction of an inch. It's clearly just for the sake of simplicity. The issue is that a lot of people go beyond that justified roundup and claim what they would be with shoes on in the morning.

Just tested my extreme low yesterday. Bang on 178.0 cm. Looks like this year I held better, as I didn't drop to 177.9 cm like I did last year, when I was testing my extreme low again. But you see Bobby, I am a 5'10 guy, because I'm nearer 5'10 than say 5'10.5, yet I am 1 cm taller than you. It's not really a big thing, I wouldn't call you a liar for claiming 5'10, but maybe you should claim ''about 5'10'' or ''almost 5'10'' and I maybe ''just over 5'10''

@Arthur
We are exactly the same height
My low is usually 5'10.25-.50. Wake up at 5'11.25 and hover around 5'10.75 in the afternoon. I claim 5'11 even though I would be considered a very strong 5'10.

@Sandy Cowell,
Ah a lie over a name change, wow that's crazy. Nothing like that has happened to me before. Sounds like someone who is just ignorant in general. Yeah of course, people are just wild though πŸ˜’

Not for one minute did I think you were the sort of Mum who would subject your children to any pain, you and your children all enjoy taking part in things together and I know that you will all stop doing something if it causes harm to anyone else. You sound like a competitive person and I think that you have instilled that same attitude into your children, there is nothing wrong with that, in fact this is a good thing. You all sound active too and this will bring numerous health benefits to you all.

Cheers!

@Greek: you should focus on weight gain. Protein creatine as well will help you to put it on fast. You really do not want to be anything above where you are now as those heights will be problematic for you. I'm saying this at 6'4 and a little bit lol
Canson said on 14/Apr/17
@Sally 5'11: agreed. Taller heights like 6'7" and above look problematic or start to get that way from what I see. I've worn steel toed work boots in the early morning less than half hour out of bed (I'm a hair over 6'5 out of bed and about 6'4 1/3 at night) but was well over 6'6" near 6'7" in them and was a hair above light fixtures in my house (6'6 1/2). Having a 6'6" and 6'7" friend they remind me every day why I don't want to be any taller than 6'4" but in that same token I wouldn't want to be any shorter than what I am now. Guess I'm more or less content
Canson said on 14/Apr/17
@Bobby: you're a decent height. You're above average at your height as is slightly.
G 5'11 said on 14/Apr/17
@179cm definitely a little above average, tallish for sure. Like 5'11 itself is a weak tall, basically same thing with 5'10.5. I been called tall before, usually by people shorter then me, even by some taller people I guess taking account (posture, footwear, proportions etc) since most people my height just claim 6 foot if not higher, but I don't do that.
@Bobby I gotcha claim what ever you feel is right, I've met so many people who lie about being 5'10, like they aren't even close to that height usually an inch or so off. But it's good you are pretty much a text book 5'10 guy. Yeah 5'11 is nice obviously not as good as 6'0 but it's the next best thing, hope you grow to 5'11. I really wish I could have hit 6 foot if only I slept better in high school, I feel like that effected me just a little bit. Yeah at 5'10 you'll be taller then 80% of girls I've only met and hooked up with two girls that where taller then me hahah. Yolo
@Arthur well because you are especially since you've measured 5'11.25 before or even 5'11 out of bed, but I can see why you say that due to your low.
Bobby said on 14/Apr/17
@Michael R, dude it's 6 freaking milimeters. Didn't you tell me you rounded up half an inch to 6'2? I'm rounding a measily 6mm, Connor is rounding up a measily 4-5mm. Big deal. It's not like he's claiming 6'1 or something. Who's gonna care in everyday life? No one.
Nik said on 14/Apr/17
@Canary

It's a good rule by which to lead your life, there is no point In bothering about small things if you can, I have always liked your posts and your interest in female height is a welcome addition to this section of the website as most of the comments are from men who are usually only interested in male height, nothing wrong with that either but it's good to hear someone talking about female height too! I remember one particular post of yours where if I am not mistaken you picked up two women at the same time, one of them with one arm and the other with the other arm!

Cheers!
Bobby said on 14/Apr/17
@Arthur, I'm an introverted person, wouldn't be found at a night club unless I was murdered and dumped there. With shoes on, I'd be a weak 5'11 anyway, at my low. I honestly don't even care, a quarter inch is not easy to see, it's practically invisible. Plus, Rob doesn't see the issue with claiming a height if you're a quarter inch off. We can't all be laser exact at a height, if my low were 5'9.9, you'd probably still call me a weak 5'10. When the fact is, I'm a typical 5'10, how many of the soldiers back in the 1920s did you think dropped to 9.75 at their low but still claimed 5'10? It's 6mm, big deal, whoopie doo, who cares?
@Canson, that's what I'm trying to explain to Arthur here, my low is 9.75, so I go up and claim 5'10. Nothing wrong with that. Out of bed, I'm 178.57cm, and lose 1.3cm on an average day. Finding clothes at your height must be a hassle though, a lot of 6'4 guys complain about these things from what I've read on forums.
@grizz, the tallest nation in the world as regards to males is still the Netherlands, and Latvia is the second tallest with regards to women.

@Jansen

How often do you encounter people taller than you on a daily basis? It seems to me that I can usually spot one or two 6'4" guys in a crowd but 6'5"+ is quite exceptional and rarer to find. I have always considered 6'4" to be the start of heights where one could go to places like a shopping center and have a decent chance of not seeing anybody taller. Just wondering if this is true from your experience of being a strong 6'4", or if there are still some guys that edge you out.
