How tall is Taylor Swift ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Taylor Swift's height is 5ft 9.5in (177 cm)

American Singer known for songs such as Love Story, I Knew You Were Trouble and We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. She said in "I'm 5'11'', so when I wear heels, it's definitely a really good view that I have. I'm like 6'2 when I wear heels, so I tend to wear cowboy boots a lot." although in 2013 in a Vanity Fair article she is quoted saying: "I think what I would mostly be looking for in a guy … is someone who sees me in my actual dimensions: 23 years old, five-foot-ten"

@184,3: a lot of women think that if you wear a 4" heels than you gain precisely 4" in height...
I think with normal heels she's lesa than 6'1"...
abhishek says on 23/Nov/14
in this video,taylor says she is 5'10" (skip to 5 minutes)
Mon says on 22/Nov/14
You can't say 'in heels', it depends on the actual size of the heels, which I don't think you can judge that accurately. She wears a variety of size heels, and appears variety of heights depending on what heels she has on. But it you look at her in rock bottom footwear with Harry Styles there is no question in my mind that to maintain that both their listed heights here are accurate you would have to claim he had a surreptitious set of subtle lifts inside his shoes every time he was with her. The footwear on show would not explain it. I'm inclined to think he is the one taller than his listing, by around half an inch.

If she was really 6'3 in heels like some suggest here then she would have been max 2 in under John Cleese on Graham Norton. Reality was different 3-4 inch difference Which puts her more realistically at 6'1.5 in heels. So she is 5'9 range i disagree by a cm or 2 but listing is fair.
Judd says on 21/Nov/14
If Katie Holmes is 5'9" as here she's listed and as i think, the taylor can't be under 5'9.5"!
vfpswiftie says on 21/Nov/14
@Just FYI Taylor is not shorter than Katie Holmes. I've examined the photos and in some they are the same height and in some Taylor is taller
Sean says on 21/Nov/14
On reflection other women have seemed much bigger than their self claimed height to reporters in articles I have read. Nonetheless, Harry Styles a while back consistently had more height on Taylor than is compatible with visible footwear and posture, given their respective listings here. As they are apparently back together and he his of an age to have gained a little in the interim, there may be some interesting photos. I hope people don't start screaming about lifts.
Mon says on 20/Nov/14
Just, While Taylor seems happy about her height and even accentuates on occasion, it can't be got around that reporters who have met her are surprised enough by her size to make a point of mentioning how tall she looks . A Rolling Stone interviewer said she looks taller than 5'10''. I don't think she would get reactions like that at just a shade over 5'9''. My point was that you usually have to worry less about a tall woman adding to her height
Just says on 18/Nov/14
@Mon There are women who like compliments like: you're so tall, you look like a model/you should be a model. So even women who aren't models, don't mind the modelheight. She's very slim and always wears skyhigh heels, so she looks taller. I'm slim too and people think I'm 5'9 while I'm just 5'7. If she really is 5'11, then Katie Holmes must be 6' tall, because Katie is taller than Taylor. Just look up images of them.
Mon says on 18/Nov/14
I think Harry Styles height has to be an issue as she looked smaller than him. "Harry Styles's height is 5ft 9.25in". Well when they were photographed together he had a hat on top of his big hair so he may steal a little. but he did not look shorter that Taylor Swift, though he did have had bigger footwear on when he was photographed with her, while Taylor had no- heels shoes and looked slightly smaller.

OK it is possible Rob is right, if Styles is indeed almost 2 inches shorter than he claims and is boosted by big shoes and big hair, but my feeling is that Taylor is a very strong 5'10''. Unfortunately, that would mean Styles is 5'10''.
Brad says on 18/Nov/14
5 feet 10 with ease.
Mon says on 17/Nov/14
At LEAST an inch over 5ft 9.5in . BBC interviewer on radio today couldn't get over TS's height and called her the biggest and TALLEST star in the music business more than once times. She must be taller than 5ft 9.5in Iggy Azalea. 5ft 9.5in is tall but you wouldn't someone that height the tallest female star in the business.

I think you have to remember that tall women in showbiz don't want to be thought too tall, unless a girl is a catwalk model being over 5ft 9 is not adding to her appeal. Unlike a man, Taylor wouldn't be adding value to steal an inch or two. If she says 'I'm 5'11' she probably is. A man her height would surely claim 6 foot.
Ivan Xavier says on 15/Nov/14
I think 5'10 is more accurate
grizz says on 14/Nov/14
WolfMan,if your height is genuine,it's still possible for Taylor to be 177 or 178 cm tall. With 6 inch heels she would be around 192-3, exactly an inch or less shorter than you,as you wrote. I'm more and more convinced that she's a genuine 5ft10. With normal heels she's about the same height,if not even a smidge taller than (supposedly) 186 cm tall Sean O'Pry in Blank Space.
WolfMan says on 12/Nov/14
was working security at an an award show that will remain unnamed. Taylor Swift was wearing heels. I stood within 3 feet of her. Im 6'3 without shoes. I was normal running shoes and Swift was I'd say no more than an inch shorter than me. Im about 6'4 & half with shoes. I'd say with heels puts her at 6'3. I think she is probably 5'11 barefoot.
Arch Stanton says on 10/Nov/14
The fringe does her no favours though David. I preferred her a few years back, check out the Def Leppard videos...
David says on 8/Nov/14
Taylor is quite goodlooking.Her middle name Alison would have sounded better as a first name.Taylor?sounds ideal for a surname but for a first name a bit strange.Have heard of a singer called Raylor Dayne in the 80's.Anyway Taylor does look tall in music video's especially on 'shake it off'.She looks 5ft 11 easily on it.
FlameBoy says on 5/Nov/14

She Looks HUGE she looks easily as big as a typical 6 ft 2 guy in shoes IMO
Adam says on 3/Nov/14
She's super tall in heels and she's looking better than never.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Nov/14
@Silent. Yeah but you're forgetting that Letterman in shoes would be more 6'2.5 if 187 barefoot.
a2 says on 2/Nov/14
she looks at least 5'10 next to carly simon
Silent D says on 1/Nov/14
She looked close to 180cm on ellen and the late show with david letterman. I know she was in 4 inch heels but she was same height as letterman, who is 187cm. 176cm.
Hypado says on 30/Oct/14
Taylor Swift Looks 176/177cm, no more, no less
Arch Stanton says on 27/Oct/14
Looks too tall in heels next to Cleese to really be lower than this.
grizz says on 26/Oct/14 she's as tall as 5ft11 Kimmel with some 3inch heels. So, 5ft9 might turn out correct after all.
Chris says on 20/Oct/14
Why are people here so obsessed downgrading everyone even guys in 6'7 range? I never saw anyone being upgraded. To me she looks like a 5'10 to 5'11 woman she's about as tall as 5'11 Behati Prinsloo and taller than 5'9 Lily Aldridge.

pollo says on 18/Oct/14
hey rob, it is really impossible that taylor is over 5. 9 (174- 175), look at this video, she is clearly smaller than mick jagger ( today he is maybe 5. 9,5) stop at 0: 35. Jagger is 3 or 4 cm taller, taylor is maybe just 5.8,5... what do you think... ? Click Here on this pictures of the concert you can see that they have similiar footwear... taylor is cool but not tall ;)
vfpswiftie says on 16/Oct/14
So Rob you really think that she can be 5ft9 flat but not below that? I also think that she can really hit the 5ft10 mark, what you think?
[Editor Rob: I've left her at the 5ft 9.5 because at the moment that has been my best guess.]
Just says on 15/Oct/14
@jerome Taylor may be taller than 5'8 Rihanna, but Taylor is still shorter than 5'9 Doutzen. See Click Here Stop at 12:25. While Taylor standing straighter than Doutzen (you can see Doutzen is bending her knee a little bit and also holding her head a little to the left) and wearing heels with the same height, Doutzen is still (maybe one inch?) taller than Taylor, no matter the camera angle.
jerome says on 15/Oct/14
Rihanna looked taller than Candice swanepoel and Taylor swift is always taller than Rihanna......
Mel says on 13/Oct/14
She's 5"8 at most. She is very slim but go watch the youtube on Victoria's Secret fashion show.shes shorter than Alessandra ambrosio who is supposed to be 175.
vfpswiftie says on 11/Oct/14
rob, do you think that there's any chance she's below 5'9"? i personally think that she's does not go below 5'9". she has just poor posture and sanding loose.
[Editor Rob: there are times where you go 'this girl can look barely 5ft 9', but I believe it is just occasions she isn't standing that well. You could still argue she was 5ft 9 flat though, I wouldn't dismiss that possibility.]
Aman says on 9/Oct/14
She is 5'10 people, she is very tall, stop trying to downgrade her.
Maddy says on 4/Oct/14
Such a beatiful height! She can be a supper model if she wanted to. (She kind of already is.)
184.3cm says on 30/Sep/14
More like 175cm since she lives in heels. 12cm heels = 187cm hence her im like 6'2 gibberish.
Just says on 30/Sep/14
In pictures with Katie Holmes and Karlie Kloss, compared to them, Taylor is Blake Lively's height: 5'8"5.
Just says on 30/Sep/14
5'8"5 definitely!
KateKate says on 28/Sep/14
5'8.5" maybe
Josh says on 24/Sep/14
She´s a bit shorter than 5'9 Candice swanepoel she´s not taller than 5'9 Lucas Till she´s around the same as 5'8 Taylor Lautner.
Judd says on 21/Sep/14
5'9.5" is spot tall as Mandy Moore
HiQuality says on 20/Sep/14
Rob, what about this picture? Click Here
It looks like her height is pretty close to Ed Sheerans's, which in this site is marked as 5ft 7.75in. Ed probably had some inches with his sneakers, but she doesn't look like she is wearing flat shoes either (from the shadows, you can see short heels)
[Editor Rob: it's harder to tell when she is a bit further away from the camera.]
Darren510 says on 16/Sep/14
I use to think 5'10 now 5'9ish. I wonder why she claimed 5'11. Usually tall girls downgrade themselves
pete says on 13/Sep/14
surprised by this listing. i still think shes closer to 5'8.5 or just 5'9, especially next to karlie kloss. well, either way, shes still very tall for a lady.
lelman says on 13/Sep/14
175cm, weak 5'9". She's real slender and wears heels a lot, so she can look 5'11" - but I don't think she's much taller than 5'9", if at all.
spainmen says on 13/Sep/14
Rob maybe its time for a little downgrade?I think 5ft9.25(176cm)will be better as you had said she looks between 5ft9-9.5 and sometimes inclussive she can look just 175cm,177 is to much for her I think.
evil says on 12/Sep/14
i don't understand rob, you have listed taylor as 177cm, and i think is right, but harry styles as 176, are you kidding, have you seen thei pictures together, harry is at least 2cm taller than her. I think that styles is 179-180cm, taylor 177, mybe 176 at least , stop downraging styles
Jay says on 9/Sep/14
I agree with Jerome. Anything below 5'9 is pushing it.
Jerome says on 5/Sep/14
shes taller than Rihanna in every picture
Jerome says on 5/Sep/14
shes taller than Rihanna who's listed at 5'8 in every pic
Height181 says on 28/Aug/14
Absolute Max I give her is 5'8''. She was around the same height as Zac Efron who is 5'7'' himself. Go to 17 seconds on the video Click Here SEE IT WITH YOUR OWN EYES PEOPLE! Lol
Jay says on 28/Aug/14
I would love to see her next to Zendaya and Kendall Jenner. I got a feeling they would be noticeably taller then her.
grizz says on 23/Aug/14
Taylor is 5'8 or 5'8.5 . Shots with 5'9 Katie Holmes prove it. Still, a perfect height for a woman, especially with her slender looks she seems much taller.
krissy says on 15/Aug/14
5' 9 is too much rob, i would say 5'7.5 or 5'8 barefoot
Jenny says on 13/Aug/14
Upon further review it looks like Katie and Taylor are the exact same height. So theyre both 5'9"
Jenny says on 12/Aug/14
In the recent pics with Katie Holmes, Taylor Swift actually looks an inch shorter than Katie and they are wearing the same height in heels. This proves without a doubt Taylor is no more than 5'8".
Just says on 12/Aug/14
@Kresh Maybe it's how they posed, but Taylor Swift looks (slightly) shorter than 5'9 Katie Holmes. Click Here Click Here Click Here Footwear seems quite similar. Taylor is 5'8"5.
Kresh says on 12/Aug/14
Taylor Swift is the same height as Katie Holmes who had stated she is 5'8".

Taylor is no more then 5'8.5" (1.74m)
avi says on 11/Aug/14
After looking online at pics with others its crazy to call her even a weak 5'9 5'8-.5 is a better shout .
alyssa says on 10/Aug/14
@ vfpswiftey
Over 5'8 I would agree. Just too much evidence to debunk anything beyond that range. Her skinniniess is key because she looks taller at 5'8 than thicker women who are 5'9 or more.
vfpswiftie says on 10/Aug/14
I stil believe that she is more than 5'8". Still pretty tall for a woman
Genevieve says on 8/Aug/14
@Just I don't know about Doutzen or Alessandra's height, but Lily does look pretty close to a weak 5ft 9in, maybe a strong 5ft 8.5in, compared to 5ft 10in Adriana Lima.
Click Here
In addition, I think Behati might be taller than Adriana, like 5ft 10.5in.
Doutzen doesn't look 5ft 9in, she is very close to Adriana if Doutzen stood up straight in this picture. Doutzen is likely to be a weak 5ft 10in.
Click Here
Just says on 8/Aug/14
@Genevieve I don't know Behati's height. But Lily is NOT 5'9. She's short for a model. Even in sky platform high heels she's about 2 inches shorter than 5'9 Doutzen Kroes Click Here Lily's, again in sky high platform heels, shorter than 5'8"5 Alessandra Click Here I think Taylor is about Alessandra's height: 5'8"5.
On this site she's listed 5'8 although people think she's only 5'7.
Genevieve says on 7/Aug/14
At Victoria's Secrets fashion show, Taylor is shorter than Behati(5ft 10in) but taller than Lily(5ft 9in).
5ft 9.5in for Taylor is spot on.
(They are all wearing same footwares by Victoria's Secrets.)

6inches says on 5/Aug/14
I think she is 5'8'' cause on this picture Click Here

she's a little bit shorter(probably 5cm)than Harry who is now 6' wihtout his hair...

Me I'm 6' though, my girlfriend is 5'8'' though and on our same pictures(than the previous) there are exactly the same gap.

WITHOUT a doubt she 5'8''
Just says on 5/Aug/14
@vfpswiftie Taylor was also wearing 3 inches high heels Click Here So she wasn't barefeet at the Oscars. I am not saying she's short. I agree with alyssa: Taylor is 5'8"5, she's quite tall. I am just saying she's not as tall as she claims to be, she's not 5'9"5.
alyssa says on 4/Aug/14
Pics of Taylor in flats standing tall next to Connor kennedy, who is 6'2", and is almost a head taller, shows that there is at LEAST a 5" difference in height if not more. Her top height is 5'8.5" maybe a little less.
vfpswiftie says on 3/Aug/14
@Just : The photo of Taylor where she was towered by Ireland Baldwin abd KarliE Kloss and even Jaime King is because of Tay wearing 3in heels while Jaime wore a 5in platform heels.
Just says on 30/Jul/14
Surrounded by shorter girls like Selena Gomez (5'5) and Emma Stone (5'6) 5'8"5 Taylor Swift looks very tall. But surrounded by tall girls like Karlie Kloss and Ireland Baldwin (both 6'1) and even 5'8"5 Jaime King Taylor Swift looks very short... Click Here Not 5'9"5 at all!
IR says on 27/Jul/14
Click Here
Don't be a "Hader" Bill! LOL, Bill is 6' 1" Taylor is at most 5' 10" the beginning of the video proves it.
Just says on 24/Jul/14
Those pictures with Karlie Kloss prove that Taylor is about the same height as 5'8 Blake Lively. That's why Taylor is 5'8"5 max.
nyc says on 23/Jul/14
I used to give Taylor credit for her height. But seeing her hanging out with Karlie Kloss makes me question it. She was wearing giant 5 inch heels yesterday and still the same height as Kloss in sneakers. The OTHER possibility which is quite common is that Karlie Kloss is taller than the 6'1" mentioned. Girls, especially in the modelling world will lie down about their height as they move away from the magic 5'11" height for women.
Just says on 22/Jul/14
The height difference between 5'8 Blake Lively in higher platform heels and Karlie Kloss in high heels Click Here is about the same as Taylor in high heels and Karlie Kloss in flats Click Here
So Taylor is about the same height as Blake. Taylor is 5'8"5 max!
Still not convinced, Rob? Only if you meet her?
Tinker says on 13/Jul/14
superb! her height is looking too tall looking great; even she's in a position that many of people have same height but she's a pop. even she is too tall in comparison to her friends but the Q is that how she's tall. I'm also a fan of those who have tall height only because of their height.
rockitbaby says on 11/Jul/14
With high heeels she's a little bit higher than Zac Efron, who's 5'8. She's NEVER 1,77cm. Maybe she's 1,74m or something close to it.

Click Here
Just says on 9/Jul/14
I still think, considering the evidence(Taylor in high heels compared to Karlie Kloss in flats)that Taylor's 5'8"5 barefoot.
alyssa says on 8/Jul/14
Best comparison for her height is the thanksgiving pics of her with Jake gyllenhaal. Both are in flats, and she is standing next to him, and is a full 3" shorter than him, maybe more. But assuming only 3", and Jake is solid 6'0 even, she is in the 5'9" range or a tad shy.
vfpswiftie says on 3/Jul/14
Rob do you think the reason that she looks 5'8 or less sometimes is because of her standing loose?
[Editor Rob: in the cases she looks 5ft 8 I think loose stance or just thin ballerina slippers can be the cause. Her range I'd say was anywhere in 5ft 9-9.5 range rather than her 5ft 10 claim.]
vfpswiftie says on 3/Jul/14
I wonder why people want to downgrade her. I personally believe that she's 5'9-5'10 because she is taller than her 5'5-5'7 friends like Selena and Hailee. The only girl who is taller than she is Karlie Kloss
MM says on 30/Jun/14
Rob would you say you're about the same height on camera as the guy with the dark shirt next to her on the 1:32 mark? If you were wearing the same shoes as that guy would you be about the same height as Taylor? If so, is it possible Taylor's below 5'9? Click Here
[Editor Rob: I don't think she's under that 5ft 9, but you can't rule out just 5ft 9 for her...]
vfpswiftie says on 28/Jun/14
Rob do you think she's under 5ft9
[Editor Rob: while there is a chance she is just 5ft 9, I'm not sure she would fall under that mark. At times she's just standing loose and might appear shy of it.]
Tyler 37 says on 26/Jun/14
Give or take, I'd say she is, as a matter of fact 5'10.2 or something. I'm only saying it because She's young and in her late 20's possibly. So I'd say her tallest pair of heels makes her about 3.5-4 inches taller than her height in her description
vfpswiftie says on 19/Jun/14
@Height181 I'm not being ignorant or whatever. I've been analyzing her height a few years ago and I can say she loses inches of height because of her slouching. I'm not gonna ignore you're "blatant" insult you blatant disser.
Okeeey says on 17/Jun/14
I get irritated when people like Taylor add inches to their height, she claims 5'10, which is garbage, 5'8.5 - 5'9 max, and I think kendall jenner is probably around 5'9.5 aswell.
vfpswiftie says on 12/Jun/14
She's her listed height, deal with it.
Just says on 10/Jun/14
I used to believe Taylor's 5'11. But when I saw those pictures with Karlie where she's really dwarfed by Karlie, I realized she can't be even close to 5'10 barefoot. So 5'8"5 barefoot for Taylor.
Glen says on 10/Jun/14
Has anybody noticed that karlie kloss is more than have a foot taller than her?
BoboAshanty says on 9/Jun/14
Seriously needs a downgrade to 5'8.5".
avi says on 4/Jun/14
Always in heels she is 5'8 area barefoot.
az says on 3/Jun/14
fyi, met faith hill a couple times, she is not 5'9 at all. like 5'6.5, 5'7.
Hypado says on 29/May/14
With 10cm Heels, looks 176/177cm next to Seth Rogen in SNL.
MM says on 20/May/14
Seacrest is barely 5'8 right? If Taylor's 5'10, she'd be 2 inches taller than him barefoot. In this interview she's clearly wearing high heels(it's obvious even though you can't see), and unless Seacrest is wearing lifts or he's taller than we thought, how can Taylor be 5'10? Click Here

Met Faith Hill 20 years ago: 5' 9" easy. Taylor always has her by an inch. Game set match: 5' 10".
vfpswiftie says on 9/May/14
Search for the picture of Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss at the Met Gala. She is 3-4 inches shorter than karlie, that means she's definitely 5'9 if you don't want her to be 5'10. :<
Alex 6'0 says on 7/May/14
Id give her a full 5'10. Def looks 5'10 range but 5'9.5 isn't impossible. Wasn't she listed at 5'10 before on here I think?
Josh says on 3/May/14
Next to Victoria Secret models she looks around 5'7 5´8 tops even 5'9 Candice Swanepoel is taller than her 6´1 Karlie Kloss towers over her , 5'9.5 yeah right
MM says on 27/Apr/14
Ok Alan Carr's what...about 5'8-5'9? If Taylor's 5'10 then she would have this much gap on him if she was barefoot. Click Here

But here, she's clearly wearing big heels that would give her at least 2.5-3 inches of height. Click Here
Just says on 25/Apr/14
I just don't understand how Taylor can be towered by 5'11 Kurkova if she really is 5'9"5, while Kurkova didn't even kept her feet together in the picture of Az.
Also, my cousin is 5'10 and her sister is 6'1. Their height difference (both barefoot) is about the same as in those pictures of Taylor IN HEELS with 6'1 Karlie Kloss in flats. So I that's why I can't believe Taylor is 5'9"5 barefoot. She's 5'9"5 in (mid)heels and 5'8"5 barefoot.
J.Lee says on 23/Apr/14
