I am an high school Elijah and i do agree with Cillian. A vast majority of kids in my school are 6ft and above id say 70% of males are in my school. I'm 5'6 in public I dont feel too short but at school I'm one of the shorter kids. My dads 5'10 and in public he always seems perfectly average though.

I thought she was taller. Very attractive though
Elijah says on 11/Mar/13
No it isn't Cillian. Average height is still a solid/strong 5'9" even for young people.
Cillian says on 17/Feb/13
Is 5'10" really average height for American men? Isn't that kinda short? Most kids these days are already at 6ft barely out of high school.

I agree with Llama.
It is indeed rare to see a girl taller than 5'7" - even in los Angeels where I live. For example, the tallest girl in the office in which I work (we have about 60 employees) is around 5'7." Teh shortest around 5'0." The average is definitely between 5'4" - 5'5." It's actually rarer than most think to see a girl taller than 5'8."

@Joey "and btw 5'7 isnt tall for a woman...its like one would call a 5'11 man tall since men are about 4-5 inches taller than women in average..a 5'7 woman is slightly above average just like a 5'11 man is... weak 5'9 and above for women and weak 6'1 & above for men can be considered as tall"
The difference between 5'4" and 5'7" in practise is a lot. I'm a 5'8" girl and it is definitely tall out in the wild. If I wear heels, I'm bigger than most guys.
Also, for guys, anything even scraping 6' is tall. 6'2"+ is very tall. 6'4"+ is huge. Two inches may not seem like a lot, but when it comes to a person's height relative to average, it really makes a big difference. Try wearing four inch platforms, you'll see what I mean.

@Helen381 thats really good to hear that! Since Im 5'3"/5'4" :)

For an average guy at 5'9''-5'10'' sure 5'3'' is perfect. But I prefer women 5'6'' or taller although that's not the most important thing.
Helen381 says on 11/Jan/13
I'm 5'3" & I was told by a male friend that its the perfect height for women, not too tall & not too short.
Helen381 says on 11/Jan/13
I'm 5'3" and I was told 5'3" is a perfect height for women, not too short & not too tall. 😊
Alexandra says on 29/Dec/12
I'm 5'3'' too and never lied about my height, even though in my country most women are taller than me. Men seem to look at overall features, I've always had very tall boyfriends that didn't care about me being short, but that's not the point. Yes, 1.60 is short, but I love being able to dress in anything and not look manly, or put on 6 inch heels shoes and feel amazing, hehe. Look at Scarlett, she's simply gorgeous!
Joey says on 19/Dec/12
5'3 sounds about right
and btw 5'7 isnt tall for a woman...its like one would call a 5'11 man tall since men are about 4-5 inches taller than women in average..a 5'7 woman is slightly above average just like a 5'11 man is... weak 5'9 and above for women and weak 6'1 & above for men can be considered as tall

i feel like if she was 5'3.5 then she wouldn't call herself 5'3 people always round up... she makes short look good thanks scarjo it helps the rest of us short girls
marla singer says on 3/Nov/12
She might be 5'3.5", she looks the same height as Mila Kunis who is 5'4"
Anna says on 6/Oct/12
She's 5'3. I am 5'7 and saw her on red carpet. She was my height on heels, I wore flats that day.

Lee, Marilyn Monroe was never short! she was about 5ft 5 which is a good average now. The average height for a female back in 1950 was 5ft 2 so Marilyn was on the short side of tall!
Lee says on 19/Aug/12
5-3 seems right. And yes, she does look a bit short in films. So what?
With women, that isn't really a negative. Guys get dinged for being short, but with women, hot is hot... doesn't matter if you're 5-3 or 5-10.
Yeah, yeah, I know... supermodels are tall. They have to be, because the clothes have to hang off them a certain way. But then look at Playboy playmates (or porn stars, if you must). They're all over the map, height-wise.
Biggest sex bomb of all-time? Marilyn Monroe. And she was short.
Emma says on 25/Jul/12
I never usually comment but I don't like the earlier comments talking about how being shorter is a negative thing. I'm 5'0 and I don't mind being that height. In fact, I think sometimes its an advantage.
Shannon says on 26/Jan/12
Cindy: Below average IS short. Keep in mind that average height for women (5'4'') is not very big to begin with. No, 5'5'' is not tall, but it`s also only slightly above average. Below average is pretty small, 5'3'' and under. I`m 5'2'' and I feel like I'm pretty short, despite being only 2 inches below average. 2 inches is a big difference when you're in the low fives. You just have to accept it. I find it a bit off-putting that you feel the need to so vehemently protest the use of the word short. I don`t mind it; I`m not insecure about being small. It`s not a bad thing.
