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 Shake It Off, 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". In 2015 she made a claim that "I grew an inch [in the past year], which means I'm the latest developing human in the world."

Wow- even with thos ginormous heels Click Here she's got nothing on Calvin Harris Click Here Strong 5'9 at best.
What strikes me the most is why such a tall lady per se insists on carrying 5-6 inch heels on every ceremony? I bet she's as tall as her bodyguards.
Bishop says on 20/May/15
I'm pretty sure that's the same John who spams on the Heidi Klum page and keeps on stating that she's 5'7" or less yet posts no evidence to it besides saying things like how this is somehow 6-7 inches:

And that this is 5 inches:

He even still believes that heels actually give what they advertise. He's probably just mad because Rob downgraded Elle Macpherson (who he argues was 6'1") to 5'11.5".

@Yo, in the pic where Taylor's walking on to the stage, you can see she's wearing super huge massive 6" platform high heels. The highest I've seen she's worn. Click Here She's wearing extra long jumpsuit with 36" inseam (that's 6" too long for her as you can see) to cover her huge heels perfectly Click Here It looks like the other girls wore 4" heels.
grizz says on 19/May/15
@John, jeez, it's like people here are too ignorant to scroll the page down. Look at Bishop's posts, especially the ones with Taylor and Karlie, and you'll see she's every bit >5'9
John28 says on 18/May/15
Are these heights estimated when barefoot or wearing high heels (or lifts in the case of men)? Taylor is towered by Karlie even when Taylor wears those extremely high platform heels and Karlie is usually in flats and slouching. Most of the heights here appear to be inflated, unless of-course the height estimation includes high-heel or very thick-sole/lift wearing. Very few are those who are honest about their height. Just put them next to Karlie and they'll get myth-busted.
vfpswiftie says on 18/May/15
Have you seem the latest videos of Taylor hugging Calvin at the 2015 BBMAs? She sure looks like 4 inches shorter than him in heels so that would make her about 6'2" in heels. Also she's a bit taller than Zendaya whose 5'9"
Yo says on 18/May/15
But she maybe around 5'8-5'9. Can't see Taylor's heel.
G says on 17/May/15
Look at this picture of her with Ed Sheraan Click Here Taylor Flats would appear to be the same height as Sheraan, but there is one detail: he is nearer the camera, giving you an edge over her. Based on this we can conclude that Taylor is higher than Sheraan. Another detail: Sheraan not be said exactly 5'8, he said he's around that. It can be 5'8.5 or 5'9. Note: A person who knew him claimed he was in this range. It is not 5'7 or 5'8 as well as many say here. This is not the only evidence. I was watching some videos on YouTube celebrities and by chance found this Click Here Go to minute 2:20. Taylor is here with Rihanna who is 5'8. There is one detail: Rihanna is closer to the camera, which gives you an edge. However, despite being closer to the camera, she looks 1 inch lower than Taylor. This puts an end to the ridiculous claims 5'7, 5'7.5, 5'8 and 5'8.5 for Taylor and the fact that Rihanna is 5'8, 5'9 the claim is also eliminated.
Yo says on 17/May/15
Click Here Zendaya, Lily Aldridge, Taylor Swift, Martha Hunt, and Hailee Steinfeld. Look through all the pictures for certain angles. I'd say Taylor is 5'10.

In what universe is that "same height"? BTW, matching shirt color, LOL.
Skye says on 17/May/15
I think Harry should actually be either 178 or 177 and 175 for Taylor.
sasser221 says on 16/May/15
Rob,do you think she looks like a weak 5'9 at times or no?
[Editor Rob: many times she can look just 5ft 9, but I'd be surprised if she was barely 5ft 9. ]
grizz says on 15/May/15
@Bishop, well I guess Calvin dropped some serious amount of height since he started dating her. To paraphrase Tommy Wiseau: "You're tearing me apart, Taylor!"
sasser221 says on 15/May/15
I think she needs some glasses.A blind man could say that she is shorter than him.

I am not a big fan of most of
her music, but she is the most beautiful female singer)
@ grizz she can't be taller then 5.9, 174-175 it's a tall, most of guys shorter than 5.9, that why shes look so tall.
Mat 5'10 says on 13/May/15
Rob, would you rule out a full 5'10 for her? (I wish you do, i hate her xD )
[Editor Rob: I think she can pull that mark off at times, but under the stadiometer I believe she might not hit it...but I wouldn't dismiss it out of hand! I'd dismiss 5ft 11 out of hand though.]
grizz says on 12/May/15
@Just, can't see footwear on that photo.
Just says on 12/May/15
@grizz The clip you've posted is a clip for SNL. It's meant to be funny, so it's fake. Taylor was probably standing on a box or something. Here you can see the real heightdifference between Taylor and 5'5 Kristen Click Here only 3 inches.
And, Taylor did wear 5" platform heels in SNL, see Click Here
_The_Taylorswift_Lover says on 11/May/15
She's very tall. I'm short, but I hope to be the same height. It says i'll be 3 in. smaller than 5'10
sasser221 says on 10/May/15
Right up there with you man,i think she is 175-176 max.

with Taylor Launter She Is the same so i beilive she is 174- 175

grizz says on 9/May/15
@sasser221, yeah, I saw that clip, too. But Hader seems like an odd case. Edward Norton claims he's 1in shorter than he, next to Ty Burrell he seemed 1in shorter. If he really is 6'1, Taylor is nothing below 5'9 in that clip. I still stay by my 176 as minimum and 177-178 as her possible height.
sasser221 says on 8/May/15
An even better comparison,Click Here against Bill Hader,who is 6'1.
grizz says on 7/May/15
Click Here Next to Kristen Wiig, who's listed here at 5'5. I really doubt Taylor wore heels, that's an older clip when she wasn't obsessed with wearing them.
Blink says on 4/May/15
Rob do you think it is possible that she grew anything after 21? Is it even possible?
[Editor Rob: I can't see evidence of it. It has to be a mismeasurement or a "lets not push down her hair" type of measurement ;)]
Iron Throne says on 4/May/15
If Taylor is 5 ft 9.5 and Harry Styles is 5 ft9.25 then howcome Harry looks taller than her in just about every photo on google?
G says on 3/May/15
I believe Taylor is 5'11 or 5'11.25 but I do not doubt that it can be less than that, but if it is, is not far from these brands. Well, there are models who are 5'8, then it would be useless to argue more. Anyway she is not inferior to 5'9.5, watch Valentine's Day, she looked an inch taller than Taylor Lautner who is 5'8.5 - 5'10.5. She is somewhere between 5'9.5 and 5'11.25, depending on Lautner height. I repeat, anything below 5'9 is ridiculous, it is like saying that Robert Wadlow was only 6'11.
Alex says on 1/May/15
Katy perry is not 5'8 she's 5'7 and Taylor is like 5'8 1/2
Taylor says on 1/May/15
176cm for tay

@Ross, no way Katy is 5'8
Ross says on 29/Apr/15
ok, if katy perry is 5.8 the taylor is 5.9,5 right?
Just says on 28/Apr/15
I accidently sent an incomplete comment last time.

@G Taylor claims to be taller because she wants the modelheight: 5'10. Even at the VS event she was dressed like a VS model. She first claimed 5'11, then claimed 5'10 and now, by saying she's grown an inch last year, she's basically claiming 5'11 again. She's always showing her legs in super short skirts and sky high heels just to look taller. She's not the only one, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lawrence and lots of other tall girls claim to be taller. Even really tall girls like 6 footers Maria Sharapova and Ireland Baldwin claim to be taller. I think Rob is off by (only) an inch and that her height is 5'8"5, not lower and certainly not higher, maybe 5'9 morningheight max.
And the heights switch with Jaime King caused by camera angles: doesn't that mean they're the same height? So again: 5'8"5 for Taylor.
louise2002 says on 28/Apr/15
She claims 5'10" herself, so
how would she be 5'11"?
louise2002 says on 28/Apr/15
she is not 5.11 or180cm...but 5.6 is too for her...
5.9,5 or 176cm...
Taylor says on 25/Apr/15
sorry but she's not 5,11
really not(
5,9 right for her(5.9 - 5,11 it's a big difference like 5.5 and 5,7 haha)

Skye says on 24/Apr/15
The very least I see this girl is 174 cm. On average she looks more like a strong 175, 176 which is still close to this estimation. I just had to lol though at her claim that she grew an inch from last year even though she's like 25 right now? I know that you have late bloomers, but most girls should be done growing near 17-18, maybe earlier. By her age, this should be her height for most of her life.

Still above average for the typical girl though.
Bishop says on 24/Apr/15
I don't see how she is gaining height by leaning her head on her shoulder, but she is still taller than Iggy, regardless of it. There are a few more pics of them where Taylor is not leaning her head and is still taller than Iggy. In that pic with Justin, She looks about the same height as him (He has more hair than her) maybe a quarter inch shorter. Her heels would give her 3 inches in height and Justin's shoes would give him an inch, so he'd be 6'0.5" in them. So since her heels give 3 inches, she's still be 5'9.5". As I said, you are free to your opinion, so believe what you wish.

I agree. 5'7-5'8" claims are ridiculous.
G says on 23/Apr/15
Well, 5'11.25 was just a guess with her picture with Iggy, that I had not been investigated much about if your height is 5'10 fact. I'm just trying to prove that Taylor is around what she claims. I do not doubt that it can be less than 5'11, but if it is, it is not much less than many here say. The 5'9 claims are still close to their claims, but 5'8 or 5'7 is ridiculous, since I saw someone claim up to 5'6 for her. If you doubt someone will still claim something less than 5'3. Are very demeaning her. To say that it is less than 5'9 are trying to bring it down for fun or prejudice with tall woman. If Taylor was 5'8 (which is high for a woman) do not know why she would claim to be higher. Please,if my comment was offensive, I'm sorry, but I honestly do not understand why many pension that she lies about their height.
sasser221 says on 23/Apr/15
I saw that pic with Iggy,and her head was leaning on her shoulder(same with Sean St.Ledger),and here she is with Justin Timberlake(who is listed as 5'11.5)Click Here
Click Here (second pic shows footwear of Justin)
Click Here (this one shows her footwear)
Another reason why i believe,now its just me,that she is a weak 5'9,but i gave up on believing she is anything lower than that.
Bishop says on 22/Apr/15
Well, I don't know how tall Sean is, so he isn't a good reference. And we can't see footwear or the top of their heads so you can't base off of that (and it's a bad photo anyway). As I said, I posted more than just that pic with Harry which shows footwear and you didn't comment on them. Read what I said again: "Why do you think Taylor, who practically sleeps in heels, suddenly doesn't wear them when around him?" I am saying that she never wears heels when with him. She's always in flats or very thin soled shoes and he has footwear advantage, so it is very unlikely she's wearing heels. She wears heels with everyone else, but not him. Why do you think that? It's obvious, if she wore heels, she would tower over him. And I don't think she would be comfortable with that. But I agree that she isn't 5'11", but she isn't less than 5'9". She's still taller than Iggy.
Daf says on 21/Apr/15
How is she listed at 177 cm when Harry Styles was taller than her in about every picture?
Charon540 says on 21/Apr/15
You think she was being a bit egotistical and fully exaggerating with that last line, that she thinks she grew?
[Editor Rob: I think she probably thought she did, but I'd put it down to 2 different measurements she's got and she thinks she grew.]
sasser221 says on 21/Apr/15
I started talking about harry simply because he gave me the illusion that he looked a lot taller than her,but seeing this picture with Sean St.Ledger,who according to Orlando City FC(the club that he plays for)has him listed as 6'0,while Wikipidea has him as 5'11,and ESPN have listed him as 5'10,that is why i said in between(im probably going offtopic talking about him instead),that picture that i posted is the only one that i could find,none with footwear whatsoever,therefore i think she is 5'8.5,maybe 5'9 at best,this also rules out whatever @G was saying about her being 5'11.25
6ftMagician says on 20/Apr/15
Rob, she looks a bit closer to 5'10'' than 5'9'', right?
[Editor Rob: I still go with bang in middle of the two]
Bishop says on 20/Apr/15
It's okay. We can all have opinions here. We'll never know how tall she is unless measured anyway, so it's all just guesses. I didn't actually mean all the stuff I said. But yes, she does seem like she wants to be taller, but she is still very tall for a lady, and many people who have met her have acknowledged this. I also agree that she isn't 5'11", but she later claimed 5'10" which is much more reasonable.

Try finding one pic of her in heels with Harry and him in regular shoes. She never wears heels with him. Why do you think that? She always wears flats or thin soles when with him. You can believe he's taller, but I personally believe that they are no more than a quarter inch apart. And you seemed to have ignored the other photos. I don't know how tall Sean St. Ledger is (you say he's between 5'10" to 6' so let's just say 5'11"), but we obviously can't see footwear there or the top of their heads.

I know Nick Young is listed at DraftExpress at 6'5", but most agree that it may have been an early in the morning measurement. He is shorter than Kobe Bryant if you search up photos, who claimed to have been measured at 6'4.75". Iggy I think is 5'9" flat. And her hair maybe doesn't end as short as where you think it does. I don't think the difference is anywhere near 3 inches, maybe .5-1 inch.
sasser221 says on 20/Apr/15
I could not find a single picture of what shoes they were wearing in that picture,as you said she sleeps in heels,so she could be wearing heels in that particular picture
Just says on 19/Apr/15
@Bishop, I can understand your reaction caused by your personal situation. It's okay. Apology accepted.
I too thought Taylor's 5'10, but after seeing her with Karlie, Katie Holmes, Emma Stone and later with Lorde, I can't see her over 5'9. That why she's in my opinion 5'8"5, still tall though. I don't think she lies about her height, I think she really believes she's 5'11.
Here are some pics with Emma Stone, see the pics in the comments in the first link.
Click Here
There no more than 3 or 4 inches heightdifference Click Here while Taylor has at least an inch footwear advantage Click Here
The only way to know Taylor's real height is to measure her. Or to let her stand next to Katie Holmes or 5'9 Doutzen Kroes, all barefeet and in their best posture.
vfpswiftie says on 19/Apr/15
Guys calm down. I am a fan of her and at first I thought she was only like 5'4". Then I checked her height and I was shocked she was listed as 5'11" way back in 2010. At first I believed that and even argued with other people trying to downgrade her eventhough she struggled to look like it. Then when she said in late 2012 that she's 5'10" it looked more sensible to me. So in my opinion she is 5'9"-5'10". 5'9" is the lowest I can go for her.
sasser221 says on 18/Apr/15
And here she is with Sean St Ledger,who is considered to be between 5'10 and 6'0 Click Here
Bishop says on 18/Apr/15
As I said, I think she simply wants to look shorter or something. Why do you think Taylor, who practically sleeps in heels, suddenly doesn't wear them when around him? He has a footwear advantage in EVERY photo. Here are a few pics to show that the difference is closer than some think: Click Here

Click Here (Again, flats and boots)
These obviously aren't the best photos, but there really aren't any good photos to compare the two. If he is really taller, then it's very slight. I think the only reason people want to downgrade her is due to Harry Styles. Sorry, but after posting all this evidence, she is strong 5'9" at worst, not a weak one at best.
Helga says on 18/Apr/15
174-175cm right for Taylor
Just says on 18/Apr/15
@Height183 I won't go as low as 5'8 flat because in high heels Taylor can reach Nicole Kidman's height.
Sean5 says on 17/Apr/15
In your opinion Rob can females grow at age 24-25? Or maybe she measured herself with better posture early thing in the morning?
[Editor Rob: she didn't grow, but she might have been measured on a different device and it was taller than before, so she thought she grew.]
G says on 17/Apr/15
hi. I see that there are people who insist on trying to demote Taylor Swift. For example, someone here says she's shorter than Jamie King, but I want you to see the last picture of this page Click Here In the last photo on this page, Taylor is higher than Jamie. I said that the camera angle handles the height of the person, and as we can see in these photos, there is no other explanation other than this. And as I said in a previous review, it takes photos at right angles and not to the ground.
sasser221 says on 17/Apr/15
I saw a a lot of pictures of them,and harry is definitely taller than her,so either he is 5'10 or she is 5'8-5'8.5 at best,maybe a really weak 5'9 at best imo.
Bishop says on 17/Apr/15
I apologize deeply for how I acted. I am so sorry. I was just extremely angry with somebody else in my life and I took my anger out on you. So please forgive me. I was just really stupid at the time. I don't want Rob to ban you. And I understand why you would think I am a fan but I really am not. I never have liked her, like at all. She seems like a nice girl, but there is just something I can't stand about her. And her music's annoying. I don't want to change your opinion, but I just saw pics of her with others and she gives me the impression of a 5'9-10" girl. Like at the iHeartRadio music awards with Madonna, they were wearing same sized heels and she dwarfed her. I don't think she's 5'10
-11". Maybe in very big heels she can reach 6'2". Also, if you search up the heels that Jamie and Taylor wore, Taylor was wearing 3 inch heels and Jamie was wearing platforms. Here is a pic in similar heels:
Click Here
Again, please forgive me. Something personal just happened at the time and I was just furious.

Well, she is a bit closer to the camera. But yes, she is certainly taller than Iggy. But Iggy is not more than 5'9". Look at her pics with her boyfriend who most likely isn't even 6'5".
Just says on 17/Apr/15
@Bishop, I don't know how old you are but you must be a real die hard Taylor Swift fan. This page is about the heights of celebrities. If Rob doesn't ban me from this site, I'll leave my opinion here. In my opinion Taylor is 5'8"5. You don't have to agree with me, I won't make you. But please have a little respect and there's really no need for name callings: "dumbest", "BS", "ignorant", "humiliated". I mean: really??? I've only commented on the pics you've posted. And even if everybody wants to believe Taylor is 6'2, let them! I don't have to agree with them. Let me have my own opinion! And here are the pics I've posted before, and in EVERY pic Jamie King is taller than Taylor. Click Here
Brad says on 17/Apr/15
Just look at her with Selena or recently owning Madonna by 6" with ease. As listed at the lowest.
Jay says on 16/Apr/15
That pic doesn't look right....
Sean5 says on 16/Apr/15
One of my friends met Harry styles and he thought Harry styles was tall and he reckoned that Taylor swift was 6'2 but it's hard to take him seriously when he claims 5'10-5'11 when the top of his head comes up below my lips and and I'm 6'2-.25
Skye says on 16/Apr/15
@Height183, just pointing out for the Taylor L and her pic, it looks like he's wearing runners while she's either wearing flats or flip flops. Runners can add about an inch height on you, maybe more depending on what brand or kind it is.
G says on 15/Apr/15
Hello. Taylor Swift is not less than 5'11. Photos that you get to make comparisons are not good because they have no good angle. All photos are taken with the camera down, it handles the height of the person. Therefore, it is necessary photos with right angle (right). Returning to the subject, Taylor Swift is not less than 5'11, I have some evidence for this my statement. See these statements by people who commented here: "She is 5'11 I met her last month and I just measured myself in the". "I met her she's definitely five elevem cuz i'm five ten and she was just barely taller than me".
These statements are not the only evidence I have for my statement. Here is a picture with Iggy Azalea which is 5'10. ( both are using the same size of jumps and the camera angle is straight and pointed at the face of Taylor and Iggy ) Click Here Taylor is taller. Their footwear Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here This contradicts all lower claims to 5'11 for Taylor, because it looks 3 inches taller than Iggy. With all this evidence we can conclude that its height is 5'11.25. Does anyone still think that it is less than 5'11?
Bishop says on 15/Apr/15
I don't believe she's actually shorter than him. In a lot of pictures, they actually look the same height. Maybe she just wants to look shorter? I would say they're around the same height. Besides, he has a footwear advantage in nearly every photo.

You make some of the dumbest excuses I've ever heard. lol slouching, heels, leaning, how many are you going to make? The evidence is right in front of you! Taylor, in heels, is very close to Karlie in flats. Period. Her heels are not that huge, they look to give her about 3 inches. Karlie is not slouching or bending knees. Stop making this BS up. BTW, here's the Vogue article I was talking about:
Click Here
Scroll down to where it says "If Taylor wears heels and Karlie wears flats, they're the same height". You are just being ignorant. And Taylor's posture is way worse than Karlie's. I don't know where Karlie has ever slouched. OK, maybe it is a bit relaxed at times but I doubt she looses an inch or more from it. Taylor on the other hand:
Click Here
lol "slouching". So everyone in the world except Taylor wears flats and slouches? Now as for Lorde, here's their footwear:
Click Here
You can make as many excuses as you want, but Lorde reaches at about Taylor's eye level - that's a 4.5 inch difference. For the pic with Selena, there are pictures where Selena was wearing 4 inch he
els and Taylor's was like 3 inches. And Taylor is still a lot taller than her. Also, you still didn't come make a come back for the pics with Jamie King and Faith Hill photos or the ones with the bug guys. For the pic with Strahan, it's 4 inches, not five. She reaches above his eye level. Strahan 6'5.25-6'5.5" in shoes and she's wearing heels that give her 3 inches in height. And she's 4 inches shorter than him (and no, he's not standing loose). So that still makes her 5'9.5" if you do the math (If you can of course). So stop making all these petty excuses from your imagination. No one is standing loose, bending knees, slouching etc. No offense, but you're a really bad judge of height. Just leave this site so you won't be humiliated like this again by someone that actually knows what they're talking about.

Bishop says on 14/Apr/15
Rob, how much height do you think these heels give her?:
Click Here
They look very high angled.
[Editor Rob: yes they push her up to max tip-toe, so add on the front part which might give 1cm or near it and probably around the 3.5 inch range.]
Just says on 14/Apr/15
@Bishop no offense, but everytime you post pictures without footwear! You claimed Lorde has footwear advantage, but you post pictures only with their upperbody! How can I see that Lorde has footwear advantage?? Lorde (with her head down while carrying big bags and who has the worst posture ever) is by the way only 3 inches shorter than Taylor in those pictures.
Also, you post pics with Selena, only with their upperbody in it. And then only Taylor's footwear, not the footwear of Selena.
Then, the pics with Karlie: in every picture Karlie's (in flats or sneakers) slouching, bending her knee, leaning on one hip, helding her head down, bad camera angles and Taylor in her best posture in huge massive heels. Seriously: how to compare??
Even in massive heels Taylor can't reach Karlie's height, not even close.

@grizz Taylor's heels look bigger (it helps if you zoom in) and Taylor is about 5 inches shorter than (the top of the head of) Strahan who stands loose.

@Height183 I still believe Taylor's 174 cm barefeet even if her die hard fans are hard to convince. It's very hard to see Taylor's exact the same height as for example Charlize Theron.

@Just: That's the highest I can buy for her. 174cm like you said. She can't be any taller than that without shoes.

@Just, how do you explain picture with Strahan?
Bishop says on 12/Apr/15
I'll explain them for him. The pictures with Lorde at the beach, well, it's a beach. Obviously not the ideal ground to compare on. And she still is 4 inches taller than her. Here are pics where Lorde actually has a slight footwear advantage:

"How do you explain the big height difference with 6'1 Karlie Kloss (in flats)"

Even a Vogue article interviewing them stated that Taylor, in heels, is the same height as Karlie in flats. Her slim figure may make her appear taller, but she stands next to models like Karlie who are just as thin and looks 5'9.5". Now, how do you explain that she's taller than 5'8-5'8.5" women like Jamie King and Faith Hill? How do you explain that, in a good pair of heels, she holds her own against big guys like Strahan, Shelton, Cleese, and Hozier? When I first looked at her, I also thought she was 5'8-5'9" range. But then seeing more recent photos (Where her posture got a lot better), there's no way she's below 5'9". Look at her in those photos at the GG after party next to Selena Gomez.
Just says on 12/Apr/15
@grizz How do you explain the pictures with 5'5 Lorde, both barefeet? How do you explain the big heightdifference with 6'1 Karlie Kloss (in flats) while Taylor's in massive heels, both Karlie and Taylor slouching? Taylor is 174 cm, tall enough to wear flats and not too tall to wear huge heels. She's slim that's why she appears taller.
grizz says on 12/Apr/15
With Strahan she has like-what? 3.5-4 in footwear? Let'presume 6ft4.5in Strahan has standard 1in dress shoes. Based on eye-level, Strahan has 4in over Taylor. Anything below 176 for Taylor is downgrade for the sake of fun or jealousy.
b-mint1994 says on 11/Apr/15
She's shorter than Harry Styles in pretty much every photo of them on the internet. Both of them are wearing similar shoes as well. Unless Harry has lifts in his shoes I find it strange that Taylor is listed taller than him.
Bishop says on 11/Apr/15
With Michael Strahan:

Just says on 10/Apr/15
I can see Michelle Obama's heels, but can't see Taylor's heels though. I do see that Taylor's footwear's got platform. So Taylor is 1 or 1,5 inch shorter than Michelle (taking their posture in consideration) and Taylor's heels are probably 1 inch (or more) higher, so Taylor is 5'8"5 Max 5'9. I've seen pictures of Michelle with 5'9 Serena Williams, I think Michelle is 5'10 not 5'11 and Taylor is obviously shorter than Michelle.
Taylor's always making such a big effort to appear taller. She's wearing huge platform high heels a lot even when she's just shopping. She also wears highwaisted short shorts/miniskirts very often to make her legs appear longer and leaner.
jack says on 9/Apr/15
so ive tried to comment on here before but they never show up..i was out with my girlfriend in Nashville a while back ..and we saw taylor getting a coffee girlfriend is not quite 5'8''a little over 5'7'' and taylor had on tennis shoes..same as my girl..they were the same height..there is no way she is over 5'8'' tall..I dont know why this girl lies so much.and btw in that obama pic michelle obama has on shorter heals than taylor is probably at least 3 or 4nches is hard to gauge cus like a lot of other posters are saying..she rarley ever goes out without massive heals on..
Bishop says on 9/Apr/15
@Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM
That's because Michelle was wearing 2 inch heels while Taylor was wearing 4 inch heels, so she has about 1-1.5" footwear advantage. Although, she was holding worse posture than Michelle: Click Here

It would likely be a tie with even posture.
Celebheights 6'1.75"/187 CM says on 9/Apr/15
She's no more than 2 CM shorter than 5'11" Michelle Obama (who is every bit of 5'11"). There is a photo of the two that even shows the footwear, and while Michelle Obama is slouching, it's clear that the difference is less than an inch between the two.
Skye says on 8/Apr/15
I'd peg her at the 5'9 range. She looks tall compared to people in the 5'5 mark, especially if she has footwear to boot. But when presented with people near her height (5'8.5'10.5ish), she can look like she's just barely inching them out in height or just about their height level.

Kinda the same for me, I'm 5'7.75 (measured myself just a few days ago). I round to 5'8 just cause it's closer, but anyways, hanging out with my 5'4 range friends, I look taller compared to them. But when i stand near teachers, strangers or other friends who are in the 5'9.5-6'0+ range, I look pretty short in contrast to them.
Skye says on 8/Apr/15
Actually, I agree with what Meg said. She towers over short/average people like Selena Gomez and Lorde, but when near people who are dangerously close to her height range, she looks shorter or just barely inching them out.

Josh says on 7/Apr/15
I´ve always thought she´s not even 5'9 and in those pictures Abby posted she looks 5'8 nothing over that.
Meg says on 6/Apr/15
Of course she looks super tall next to her shorter friends, but she doesn't hold her height when compared with other people in the same height range. There's more than enough to prove 5'10" too much.
g0d says on 5/Apr/15
This right here is the proof she's not taller than 5'8".

5'9 range is fine. I would have her at 176cm but no point arguing 1cm. Stop with the 5'11 - 6 foot nonsense. Poor girl has other people in her life claiming those heights and so just assumes she is also that tall.

My final guess for her:

5ft 9.5in , 176,6 cm - Taylor Swift.
Bishop says on 28/Mar/15
Her heels aren't 6 inches. They're more like 4.5-5 inches with a half inch to an inch platform. This is how a 6 inch heel looks like:

Elizabeth says on 8/Mar/15
What i thought she 6ft some
Tania says on 8/Mar/15
@dom: Even then, Sharapova didn't grow at the rapid rate of 1 inch per year. She was a little over 6'0" (maybe 6'0.5") in 2004, and she looks a weak 6'2", maybe 6'1.5" now. It took her two years to get that 1 inch of height.

But Taylor Swift growing a whole inch from 24 to 25 - nope. Like you said, growth in early 20's in possible but not to the extent Taylor claims.
184.3cm says on 7/Mar/15
21 is really the end..if anyone grows after that then they are a tiny fraction of the population less than 1 percent ..thats for a man as well most men are done round 18 years old. For women its 16 years old, as women mature quicker and round that period 13-17 years old they can actually be taller than young men who then shoot past them as they get a late growth spurt. Ive never seen a girl grow as late as 18 years old, like ever.
dom says on 6/Mar/15
@liftdetector. Those facts, are on average. That doesn´t mean there aren´t outliers which happens more often than you´d think. Sharapova didnt stop growing until 19. Growing until 25 is nonsense but someone growing into their late teens, early 20´s is not unheard of.
LiftDetector says on 6/Mar/15
@S says on 3/Mar/15

Yeah, it's BS she grew at around 25. According to Duke University: "On average, females are done growing around age 12 to 14, and boys around age 14 to 16." So her claim contradicts medical science. Same goes for people who claim Justin Beiber grew or is still growing at his age of 20+ -- which total nonsense.

Once puberty is over, so is growing. The cartilage in between your joints (growth plate) starts to become sealed, and creates a line in between. This happens in almost every bone, excluding your hands, and skull.

Thanks @just5ft7. I always think that Taylor is so tall and then I see her with Karlie...
Bishop says on 4/Mar/15
That's because she hasn't grown an inch unless she has a pituitary tumor. It's obvious she just measured herself wrong. 5'9.5" seems like a good estimate on her height. It was always obvious she was never 5'11".

Just5ft7 says on 3/Mar/15
Taylor's claims of her height do suggest that she really wants to be (at least) as tall as models.

@Height183 I totally agree with you. I think that's because they're all Taylor Swift's fans. Even with hard evidence there's always an excuse like: it's the camera angle. She stands loose... But so does Karlie.

@Greg, Here are more pictures of Taylor with Karlie. Even with (at least) 3 inches high heels, Taylor is still 3 inches shorter than Karlie in flats. Click Here

I think Taylor truly believed that she's 5'10. But since she's hanging out with a true sixfooter (Karlie), Taylor realised that she isn't as tall as she thought to be. That's why she's now not wearing cowboyboots anymore. Instead, she's now always wearing sky high platform heels, so she wouldn't get dwarfed by tall girls like Karlie or Ireland. Click Here

@miko There's no way that Taylor can reach 6'2 in high heels if she even can't reach 6'1. Taylor is only Karlie's height, as Taylor is in high heels with platform and Karlie bending her knees and head.

Instead of downgrading Taylor's height to 5'8"5, it's been decided to upgrade Karlie's height. It's not a realistic upgrading, since Karlie is very close in height with Ireland Baldwin and Toni Garrn (both 6') and there is for sure no 4 cm heightdifference between Karlie and Toni. Click Here

grizz says on 27/Feb/15
@Bishop, maybe she used that Alexander method(or whatever it's called) to improve her posture. I heard it's very popular among celebrities,especially performers.
Bishop says on 26/Feb/15
Maybe she measured herself in the morning and thinks she grew or maybe her posture just got better over the year. Very rare for a man to grow after 23 let alone a woman! Believe it or not, though, she actually did kind of claim 6ft on Tumblr once: Click Here
Look at the hashtags "#6ft tall elves". lol
Greg says on 26/Feb/15
Is it possible she was 5'10 and has reached 5'11 in the past year?
Greg says on 26/Feb/15
Hey rob thanks for the response on my comment! How tall do you think she was before she grew then?
[Editor Rob: I don't think she has grown, or she had an earlier measurement or slightly incorrect one which made her think she grew.]
Hypado says on 26/Feb/15
Taylor Swift's height is 5ft 9.5in (177 cm)

5ft 9.5in or 5ft 9.75in for Taylor.
grizz says on 25/Feb/15
But on a serious note, if she claimed 5ft10 in 2013, basically now she'd claim 5ft11, a figure she claimed at first.
In order to claim this height, she must be at least 180 out of bed. So, 178 or 5ft10 might be her actual height.
Which might explain why she didn't seem much taller than Lautner back in 2010.

Or, if we live in the real world, she wrongly measured her height.
grizz says on 25/Feb/15
Bishop says on 24/Feb/15

The current listing seems perfect to me. At times, she might stand a bit looser and can look shorter. I've posted a lot of pictures of Karlie and Taylor more than 2 months ago (I think it's still there) and there is really no more than 4 inches between them.
Ally says on 21/Feb/15
Most sources say she's 5'11 but she probably looks taller because she's slim as well. So maybe 5'9-5'10, still a good height.

Out of all the listings on the site, this has got to be the most bizarre one to me! When I say this, I don't mean any disrespect to Rob and the posters. I just still don't understand this listing. But there's got to be one height for everyone that you won't completely agree with right? This is the one for me.
Bishop says on 19/Feb/15
I love how people overuse the word "tower" in this site. The only time where I would consider someone "towering" over someone else is if you can see over their head. Fallon definitely did not tower over her. Anyways, the video is really bad to judge height from. It's obvious they're dancing and jumping around. And when they pose together, they're clearly bending their knees and backs. I saw the show myself (Maybe it's still on Jimmy's site?) and when she walked in, she was wearing 4 inch heels and looked about the same height as him. Jimmy is listed at 5'11.5" so he would be 6'0.5" in shoes (And we all know the thick heels that Fallon wears). So she would still be in the 5'9-5'9.5" range.

Also, here are three photos of Taylor and Karlie where they're wearing similar heels: Click Here

Here she is in heels, as usual, dancing with Jimmy Fallon, and she still looks shorter than him, or at most the same height. They're not standing up straight, they're jumping around, but she definitely doesn't look taller than him. 5'9" to 5'9.5" is probably right.

Oh come on, no way she's 5'11. 5'11 Kimmel was with lifts only 0.25 inch shorter than Taylor with some 3in heels.
In every photo of her with 5'9.25 Styles she was shorter. Take into consideration he constantly wore boots and Taylor hat flat shoes, so 177 is right again. Finally, in Valentine's Day she was doing her best not to look taller than 5'8.25 Lautner, but with 5'11 that would be impossible.
177 is spot on for her.

Guys, Taylor Swift is :

178 cm - in the morning

177 cm - in the day

176 cm - in the night

this, no doubt.

5ft 9.5in (177 cm) - is the right.
grizz says on 9/Feb/15
@184.3cm, look at their shoulder level
grizz says on 9/Feb/15
She's nothing below 177. I'd even argue 178. It's strange, seeing her with 174 cm tall Taylor Lautner in Valentine's Day (don't ask), she seemed maybe half an inch taller (they wore similar footwear). Maybe she hunched a lot?

What's her weight? She was always a skinny girl, but ever since she hit the gym (since last year), she's borderline skinny. 58 kg, perhaps?

esmat says on 23/Jan/15
To some of the people here saying that she is 5'11. Please look at the photos of her with the 6'1 karlie kloss at the AMA. If taylor swift is 5'11 then karlie must be 6'4 because she is 4-5 inches taller than her in lower heels.I would say that she is most likely about 5'9 or 175. Taylor seems obsessed with looking like a model the past couple of years so I wouldn't be surprised at all if she's lying about her height.
harry says on 23/Jan/15
Why is she taller than Harry on here when he towers here when they were together?
vfpswiftie says on 23/Jan/15
Rob, why do you list people who claim 5ft10 like Taylor or Iggy as 5ft9. ?
[Editor Rob: I believe they can look that range. There's very few people who say 5ft 9.5 compared to those who would say 5ft 10, but at least many (if not a bit more) in the real world who would measure at 5ft 9.5 as 10.]
Sal says on 21/Jan/15
I think your assessment of perhaps 5'10.5" morning height might be right Rob. Women generally don't lie about their height unless they are trying to be models. Most actually round down so if she said 5'11" and 5'10" somewhere in the middle may be accurate.
vfpswiftie says on 15/Jan/15

@little sue- I suppose that is your measurement in heels but no one else I have known gains that little height from heels. My friend is a US 4.5 ( I believe that is around a 3.5?)and gets the same amount of height from a heel as me. But everyone is different. @ Jewel there are plenty of heels out there that give 5 inches and more.
littlesue says on 11/Jan/15
Laura I have got posture, I go with Rob says about gaining height in heels, if you read below he says the smaller the foot the less the heel may give. I tried this with my mate who has a size 7 and she got 1/4 inch more out of the height of heel than I did in identical shoes
Bishop says on 10/Jan/15
Some large heels can give 5 inches. This heel is described as 6.5 inches and has a 2.5" platform and should give around five inches of height depending on your foot size, according to Rob: Click Here

She's not over 177 (if even that, she's skinny hence makes her seem taller) but i doubt she's under 5'8. Maybe 5'8'5 at her VERY lowest but not anything less.
MM says on 10/Jan/15
Yeah, that seems accurate, but don't those platforms that Taylor's wearing in that vma pic almost look like the same heel as these that Jenny's wearing, which didn't even give her 4 inches but almost? I'd think those shoes would give Taylor about 3.5 inches of height. What do you think Rob? Click Here
[Editor Rob: they are close, but remember Jenny has a size 5UK (so like 4US) foot so doesn't quite get as much height as swift who would get a small fraction more if using the same type of heel.]
Jewel says on 10/Jan/15
no heel gives 5 inches
Laura says on 10/Jan/15
@ little sue- wow I have never heard of someone gaining that little height from heels. Perhaps it is your posture? I don't think it’s the size of the foot to how much height you gain from a heel, I myself usually wear a US 6, sometimes 6.5 and have very narrow feet , and my friends & sister who have all measured their heights in heels have feet sizes ranging from US 4.5 through to US 9.5...and all their results came up the same as mine, almost always only lose half an inch tops of the actual heel height. I think Rob's guide regarding heel height gains is one of the better ones out there, and is more accurate than most others. Maybe just double check that you have measured yourself right in your heels as well :)
MM says on 9/Jan/15
Rob, just many inches of height do you think she has with these shoes on? Click Here
[Editor Rob: with her long foot those might give a little over 4 inches of actual height.]

Don't know if it's been posted already, But I was reading her interview with Vogue UK and they said ''Taylor's looking tall, standing at 6ft with her huge ysl heels' or something like that. if she's 6ft with huge heels, she's probably shorter than 5'105'11. I'd say 5'9 at most
littlesue says on 6/Jan/15
Maybe what you gain depends on the size of the foot?? I have size 3 (UK) shoes, If I wear 5 inch heels with an inch platform I only gain about 3.5 inches. If I wear a normal 3 inch heel with no platform I gain about 1.5 inches. The smaller the foot the less there is at the front so you don't seem to go up so much at the back.
Laura says on 5/Jan/15
@ Just sorry some of my last comment I forgot to put in- half an inch subtracted from the heel height is the general rule of heel height gains (so like I said in my last comment, 6" will give you 5.5") but there are exceptions. In some heels I have (both with platforms and without platforms) I gain all the height bar 1cm. The biggest difference I have had in heels is 2cm, but those heels were too big for me so perhaps that was why, and another pair which were 5.5" heels without a platform which ended up giving me 1.5cm less than their advertised height. But apart from those pairs, I have never had anything bigger than half an inch difference. Some heels you can actually get all their advertised height, especially those huge 90s platform shoes.
Laura says on 4/Jan/15
@ Just- Re heel heights, I have read numerous guides of what heels give in height but I have found that most are inaccurate. I have measured all of my heels heights, and then had myself measured in all of them, (in heel heights ranging from 3.0"-6.5", with platforms and no platforms)and have found that when I am wearing all of them, even the ones without a platform, I gain almost all the height of the heel bar half an inch. So in my 6.5" boots, I gain 6" in height. In my 5" heels, I gain 4.5" in height, etc. The guides that say you only gain 3.5" in 5" heels are not right at all. My sister and some friends have also done the same as me and come up with the same result, so it isn't just me. If you see a heel height on a shoe advertised as being 6", you will get 5.5" from it. Hope that helps.

Look at all the pictures and videos of Swift next to Ryan Seacrest which is listed as 5'7'' 1/2 and he even have joked about being told that he's short. Swift is no more than 3 ot 4 inches above him wearing heals. She have to be between 5'6'' and 5'7'' which surprises me because i also though she was talleR, being too skinny makes her look longer.

Rob, I don't know how to tell how many inches heels would add to someone's height and how to estimate heights. For example, is here Click Here more than four inches height difference between Taylor and Karlie? In this picture no one is slouching Click Here (Karlie's even in disadvantage, she has her legs apart). Don't say they are exactly the same height and that this is caused by the camera angle.
Karlie has, I think, 3 inches heels with no platform. And Taylor has, I think, at least 6 inches heels with platform Click Here How many inches those heels would add to their height? And what does this say about their height difference?

@Just She can hit 6'2" because Ive seen her 2012 interview with David Letterman and he's listed as 6'1.5" and she's wearing heels that gives her about near 4 inches and letterman is wearing shoes that probably gives him and inch and they're the same height. Also Taylor can be taller than Karlie Kloss, it's just that she has poor posture and slouched shoulders which slightly negates the additional height that her high heels gives her.:)
Bishop says on 26/Dec/14
Cleese is a definite 6'4" today and 6'5" at peak as Rob has listed. So if they are both 6'4", they would be 6'5" with shoes on and she looks about 3-4 inches shorter than them. KP only looked taller than Cleese due to camera angles. In this pic that someone posted on Cleese's page, KP is closer to the camera and they look about the same height: Click Here
So if anything, John was a shade taller. The platform doesn't look 2 inches to me. More like 1.5 inches. Typical high heels described as 6 inches would usually give 4-4.5 inches in height. How does she look just 6' there? Graham Norton is 5'9" in shoes and she is clearly more than 3 inches taller than him. You always have to take other people's footwear into account, which usually adds about an inch.
Just says on 25/Dec/14
@Bishop Here is the show Click Here and at 2:51 minutes you can clearly see Taylor is wearing 6 inches high heels with 2 inches platform. She's about 4 inches shorter than John Cleese (who I doubt is really 6'4 now. I think he has lost height, because between the three of them Kevin Pietersen is the tallest and he's really 6'4). But let's say John is still 6'4 with shoes, so Taylor is 6' (6'1 tops and I'm being very generous) while wearing 6 inches platform high heels which would give her 5 inches height. So Taylor is 5'8"5 tops. Still tall for a girl though. And no, I don't want Rob to downgrade her; he can just keep her at 5'9"5 if he likes ;-)
@vfpswiftie No offense but Taylor had never been 6'2 in high heels. Even in huge high heels Taylor's still shorter than 6'1 Karlie Kloss in flats. Taylor is tall at 5'8"5. Not taller not shorter.
Bishop says on 23/Dec/14
Rob, are you sure her brother is 6'3"? Because in these pics, she's wearing like 4 inch heels while he has shoes on and they look about the same height: Click Here

vfpswiftie says on 21/Dec/14
@Bishop. I'm glad you've seen it. That was the best proof that she can be 6ft2 in decent high heels which means she is 5ft9 at the very least and possibly hits 5ft10
Hetty says on 21/Dec/14
in her defence she can reach 6'2 at her nearly 5'10 height with some decent heels.
Bishop says on 20/Dec/14
I saw the show. She could look about 3-3.5 inches shorter than him. John Cleese is listed 6'4" so he would be 6'5" with shoes on. Kevin Pietersen was also there and he's 6'4" as well. And they all towered Graham Norton. Though, I'm not sure what size heels she was wearing since the table was covering it most of the time and she was keeping it to the side. But they looked to have a platform (Not out-of-the-ordinary large). So 5'9.5" seems like a legit listing. Ansel Elgort is listed here as 6'3". In these pics, he's wearing shoes (would be around 6'4" in them) and she's wearing 4 inch heels (gains about 3 inches from them) and she isn't that much shorter:

At a Neighbors premiere, he looked nearly the same height as Seth Rogen and about 3 inches taller than Christopher Mintz-Plasse XD. I wouldn't say he would just wear them at public events. If he's going to be on show with a girl taller than him, it might have been the right time to wear lifts. Either way, he still looked to have a footwear advantage with her.

@ Mon- I am not saying everyone is shorter by 2-3 inches than what Rob says, and I certainly don't think that. When did I say that? Like @Just said, I only said I think she is 5"8.5 tops, which is only 1 inch below this listing. And I have seen Taylor in real life, and I came up over a couple of inches higher beside her than what I do my sister (who is 179cm/5"10.5) and I was in flats and she was in little heeled boots (probably around 1.5"). And you can make up all the excuses all you want, photos taken from any angle show that Taylor's heels are quite a bit higher at the VS fashion show than the model's. And your argument with heel height makes no sense, Ariana Grande was up on stage at the VS fashion show not just walking and standing, but dancing in 6.5" Louboutin boots. I can walk and dance in 6" heels without stumbling or falling over, and I am sure that Taylor Swift, an experienced high heel wearer, is capable of much the same. And I think Taylor wanted to be within the same height range as most of the models at the show, that's probably why she wore higher heels this year than she did last year when she performed. And I am well aware that TS is a singer and not a model who needs to be booked, that doesn't mean she doesn't exaggerate her height though. Personally I think she isn't over 5"8.5, but that's my opinion.

Taylor's image is that she is well above average, she says she is a strong 5'10'', and yet most biz people who actually meet her find her to be taller than expected. She has a seriously tall brother so 5'10.5 is possible with perfect posture. On the walk across the studio on 'Ellen' she had height minimising deportment and was in had rock bottom shoes but was taller that 5'8 Zack though he must have had 1 inch footwear advantage.

Found this video on Gigi Hadid's instagram:
Click Here
Taylor is the one with the white shirt and the blue sleeves. Here she is decorating with Giga Hadid, Cara Delevinge, and Kendall Jenner. They're all wearing socks. The video is moving way too fast to tell how much difference there is between them. But if you can pause at the right moments, Taylor is taller than Kendall and possibly the tallest one there. Kendall looks the same height or slightly shorter than Gigi and the shortest is obviously Cara, who is standing on the couch. The camera distance and movement may affect things, but I thought it was interesting to show.
Just says on 12/Dec/14
@ Mon, Laura didn't say that Taylor is 2-3 inches shorter than Rob says. Laura said Taylor is 5'8"5 tops, while Rob has put Taylor at 5'9"5, that's only 1 inch difference. Taylor did claimed 5'11, but she later corrected herself and said she's 5'10. Between 5'8"5 and 5'10 there's only 1.5 inches difference.
Insanely high heels at VS show? Yes, Click Here those heels have at LEAST 2 inches platform.
It's not about being booked, but everybody wants to be the modelheight: 5'10. Tall people (male or female) are considered more beautiful, that's why Taylor always wears miniskirts and shorts with high heels.
Recovered Data says on 12/Dec/14

Mon says on 9/Dec/14

Whoops, my previous comment was a little confused. I meant to say:- If Taylor is no taller than 5'8.5'' she is actually claiming to be a full two and a half inches taller than she thinks she is. Moreover a Rolling Stone journalist who spent time with her thinks she is 2.5 inches taller than she actually is and WolfMan the 6'3''security guy on this page who stood next to her thinks she is 2.5 inches than she actually is.

I could believe they are all one inch out because she is slim and a superstar status can make you seem larger (even to yourself perhaps), but there are limits. And there are limits to what height heels you can walk in. Some heels are more for photoshoots than walking in the street. Do you really think Taylor Swift is so desperate for height that she would mean insanely high heels on stage? Well you apparently do because you said "I personally can see nothing less than 3 inches between Taylor and Karlie on the runway, and Taylor's heels are quite a bit higher than all of the other models heels.

'Quite a bit higher' than VS show models' heels would be an insanely high. Women fall flat on their face wearing heals like that, sometimes literally.

Laura, in the name of all that is good and true in this world please stop saying that people are 2-3 inches shorter than Rob says. Carla and Kate are professional models and as such have every reason to put out a false height and wear ridiculously high heels at a show yet they are only 1.5 inches shorter than their agency stats. Taylor is not as tall as she says but she isn't so deluded as you would have to be to say she is 5'11' when she is under 5'9''. The girl is a not someone who has to be a certain height to get booked, she is a star who happens to be tall. 5'9.5''

Laura says on 9/Dec/14

@ Bishop that is okay sorry if I came across like that as well. Lots of women and men inflate their height, some by more than 4 inches. I have friends who are 5"7 and 5"8 and they claim 5"10 when they are clearly not. Blake Lively claims 5"10 when she clearly isn't over 5"8. I personally can see nothing less than 3 inches between Taylor and Karlie on the runway, and Taylor's heels are quite a bit higher than all of the other models heels.

@ Mon Kate Moss definitely isn't 5"7, I have met her and believe me she isn't over 5"4, and she got extremely lucky in the industry. As for the VS models Lily Aldridge is under 5"7, Miranda Kerr is around 5"6 and Candice isn't over 5"7. Alessandra isn't over 5"8. All their heights are just inflated, its usually by about two inches but sometimes as much as 5 inches (yes, I have seen it happen). And someone who is 5"8 can look very tall in 5" heels, seeing as their height is over 6"0 in heels. Plus, Taylor is very thin so again she gives the illusion of looking taller than what she is. I am a little confused by your comments on heels & height- your actual height has nothing to do with how you walk in heels, and also if you know your heel heights and styles, it is very easy to gage how much height one is gaining from a particular pair of heels. In my opinion, Taylor 5"8.5 tops.

Mon says on 8/Dec/14

Bishop gave a fair selection of photos, and does not stake everything on one single photo and pretended ability to determine exact measurements to the inch from photos. I think it is clear Talor in heels stands well over 6 foot. While people do often claim to be taller than they are and can look taller than they are there are limits. If Taylor is no taller than 5'8.5'' she is actually claiming to be a full two and a half inches taller than she thinks she is, a Rolling Stone journalist who spent time with her thinks she is, and WolfMan the security guy on this page thinks she is.

Those people couldn't all be that wrong! She is 5'9'' for sure, and possibly a strong 5'10'. 5ft 9.5in is right on the money. I see Bishop has written much the same.

Bishop says on 8/Dec/14


Look at all the pictures I showed below. There is no more than a 4 inch difference between them. I even showed pictures where Taylor was at least an inch taller than 5'8" listed Lily Aldridge, 5'8.5" listed Jaime King, and no more than half an inch shorter than Behati Prinsloo. I don't think she's 5'11", but I don't think she's below 5'9", as I doubt she would lie by her height by more than 2 inches due to the "Hollywood 2-inch" rule. Camera angles, postures, sloping/uneven ground etc. can affect things by more than you think. In other pictures I've seen of them in VS fashion show, I can see about 2 inches between them in those heels. And Taylor usually holds worse posture than Karlie in photos I've seen with them. You may not agree with Rob, but I think you're trying way too hard to downgrade her to 5'8.5" even though Rob said he's not going below 5'9", no offense.

Just says on 7/Dec/14

I agree with Laura. I really used to think Taylor was 5'11, she really looked very tall. But since she's been photographed with Karlie Kloss, I've noticed the big height difference between them. The height difference between them is too big for Taylor to be taller than 5'8"5. My cousins are the same height as Taylor and Karlie are listed, but their barefeet height difference is the same as Taylor in high heels and Karlie in flats.

Later on, in pictures with 5'9 Katie Holmes, Taylor is either as tall as Katie or shorter than Katie, but not taller. In the video with 5'9 Doutzen Kroes, Taylor also was shorter.

Bishop gave a lot of excuses about camera advantages, Taylor had her head down, Taylor was not standing staight. But Karlie slouches even more than Taylor. Adriana was bending her knees AND leaning back. No one was really standing straight, so there is no disadvantage for Taylor.

Taylor however is very slim and a smart dresser. She frequently wears high waisted shorts or skirts with high heels (with platform) to elongate her legs, so she looks taller than she really is. She's still quite tall at 5'8"5. I know Rob believes she's 5'9"5, but I don't agree with him.

Bishop says on 7/Dec/14


Sorry if I was a bit rough. And I'm not trying to change your opinion. I just find it ridiculous when people say she is 5'8" or even 5'7". Who would exaggerate their height by 3-4 inches? And I didn't find the photo good for comparison due to poses and Taylor was the furthest from the camera. As for the photo you were talking about, I know Taylor's platform is slightly higher and Karlie is holding slightly worse posture, but Taylor still has her head down in the second photo I posted. I can understand why you would think she is 5'8", but it's just that she has terrible posture and her head is always down which makes her look shorter. After all those photos I posted, I can't see more than a 4 inch difference between them. In the runway, I could see a 2 inch difference between them and in the last photo you posted, Karlie, again, has a camera advantage. And the difference really isn't that much. I saw another photo of them walking backstage and the difference looked about 2 inches as in the runway. I can accept 5'9" flat for her. Not lower, though. Just my opinion. Cheers!

Mon says on 7/Dec/14

Again Laura , you can't tell what heels are adding to height with the half inch level of precision. You can't. But you can always work backward to estimate what the difference in height would be if you were right, and then say that is what you 'clearly' see.

You seem to be saying top model Swanepoel is 5'7', but Kate Moss is the only top model I know of who is that size.

Taylor was furthest from the camera beside top VS models in their catwalk heels and she looked around the same height as most of them (and slimmer than all of them). It is very very unlikely anyone around 5'8'' could look that tall without heels so high she would have trouble walking without looking clumsy. No question Kloss, a woman 4 inches taller than the average man,xceeds Taylor by a considerable margin, but Taylor in heels approaches Kloss's height in photos of them walking on the street, and shoes worn in the street are unlikely to be even adding 4 inches.

Laura says on 7/Dec/14

@ Bishop- It don't think it is that bad of a picture, I was using it mainly to compare Kloss and Swift's height. I know they are posing but my point was if they were standing up straight there would be more of a 3" difference, it looks more around 4", and Swift is still in higher heels. I don't get what you're saying, with the 5.5" would be difference between them. If TS is 5"8, she'd be 6"1 in 5.5" heels as they give 5" in height with a platform (I've measured my sister and myself in our 5.5" heels and we both gain 5" from them). Kloss wouldn't be over 6"4.5 in those heels, so Swift would only be 3.5 inches under Karlie, which she looks about that in these photos. If she is 5"8.5, she'd be 3" shorter, which she barely manages in these photos. I am just stating my opinion on the matter and thank you for all the photos, a few I hadn't seen before but I still don't think she is over 5"8.5. I think you are understating the height difference between Taylor and Karlie a little, no offense. In those first two photos Taylor's heels have a *slight* platform and Karlie is slouched lower than Taylor is. If they were both standing up straight I see a clear 4" difference. I am aware of camera advantages etc but sorry, to me there is enough evidence IMO to suggest she is under 5"9, certainly not by much but still. @ Mon, a 5"8 girl in 5.5 inch heels with a platform does not look short next to models where the majority of them are in the 5"7-5"9 range in 4" heels with no platform. I know this isn't the best pic but if you look here: Click Here you can see neither Swift or Kloss are standing up straight again, but if they both were, there is a clear minimum of 3" difference between them.

Bishop says on 6/Dec/14


For some unknown reason, my comment to you was deleted...

Mon says on 5/Dec/14

Laura you can't tell what heels are to that level of precision. Re. your pic. The girls are all at least 5'8'' or taller and in undeterminable high heels. Taylor is furthest from the camera and looks ultra slim but not short (as evidenced by Swanepoel and the one on the end's nearness to the camera making them look unnaturally huge in the torso and head) yet while posing beside top models Taylor still looks comparable to all of them despite being so far back. A 5'8'' girl would look small bodied and short back where Taylor is, yet though she looks very petite in the body and head but Taylor is really quite tall looking there despite her being the greatest distance from the camera. I am more certain than ever she is five nine and a half.

Bishop says on 5/Dec/14


That is not a good picture at all. They are clearly posing and the difference looks more like 3 inches instead of 3.5 inches "at the minimum". Also, in your photo, Candice has a huge camera advantage and she is about 5'8-5'8.5". Even if the difference is 2 inches on the runway, then Karlie would be about 6'4-6'4.5" in 4 inch heels so 2 inches shorter would still make her tall in heels (Keep in mind that heels don't give what they advertise). Anyways, so if she is 5'8" as you are saying, then she would be 5.5 inches under Karlie. Let's take a look at some photos:

Click Here

They're wearing the same size heels. If you go off the top of their heads, then I see nothing more than 4 inches, if that even.

Click Here

lol, this photo actually makes it look more like 3 inches. Though Karlie is a bit farther from the camera, but Taylor has her head down.

Click Here

Their footwear:

Click Here

Click Here

Karlie is in converse which adds about 0.5-0.6 inch. Taylor is in heels, yes. But they do not have a platform. And I barely see half an inch apart.

Click Here

I can see about 4 inches here (same size heels). Certainly not 5.5 inches. That would put here below Karlie's eye level.

Click Here

Click Here

In these two pics, Karlie has a camera advantage. If they were the same distance from the camera, then they would be about the same height (or close). You really think those heels give Taylor 5.5 inches?

Click Here

Yes, she is in platforms in this photo. But Karlie is in sneakers, which also add height. And they look the same height.

Click Here

Click Here

Taylor in heels (NOT platforms) and Karlie in sneakers (also adding height). Not very good photos since Taylor is closer to the camera and the ground is tilted, but enough to show the difference is not 5.5 inc- hes.

Not sure on the heel size here, and Taylor does seem to have a slight camera advantage. But enough to show it's not 5.5 inches.

In these photos, Taylor is in heels and looking about the same height or close in height to Karlie in flats. Maybe if people concentrated on camera angles and sloping sidewalks, then they would have understood it better. Here's another pic: Click Here

It should be noted that Taylor is closer to the camera in this pic and Karlie does seem to be at a ground disadvantage which is why Taylor looks taller, but I highly doubt it would make up for a 5.5 inch

Karlie is closer to the camera this time XD

I know that these may not be the best photos, but it's enough to prove my point. Sorry if I made this post too long. As for her height, I agree with Rob, 5'9-5'9.5" respectively. Also, for reference, with 5'8.5" listed Jaime King (same size heels): Click Here

Laura says on 4/Dec/14

@ Bishop this is a good picture of them: Click Here

Neither Kloss or Swift are standing up straight, but Kloss is in 4" heels with no platform. TS is in no less than 5.5" heels with a platform. Even if they were both standing up straight, Kloss would still be at the bare minimum 3.5 inches taller than Swift, even with Swift's higher heels. Also in the photo beside Swift is Candice Swanepoel, who is well known in the fashion industry for being under 5"8 and is in lower heels than Swift. And in those pics of Kloss and Swift on the runway is nothing less than 2 inches between them. After seeing TS in real life and based on the photos I keep seeing, I don't think Taylor Swift is anything over 5"8 (which is still tall).

I will never get this listing of 5'9.5'', I will never understand it...

rmv says on 3/Dec/14

either she is a max of 5'9" or taylor lautner is underrated on here by about an inch. in valentines day they are both wearing sneakers and appear to be the same height. no way is she a full inch taller than him

Bishop says on 3/Dec/14


Looks no more than an inch difference in these photos:

Click Here

Click Here

Karlie is listed here as 6'1.5" and is wearing four inch heels so she is obviously gaining height too. And their feet are oriented pretty close. And yes, I am aware that she has higher heels than her, which I clearly acknowledged in my post -_-

What picture of Adrianna? You mean this one?: Click Here

Adriana has a camera advantage, Taylor has her head down and doesn't look to be standing straight. So she is at least 5'9" and Rob already stated he isn't going lower than that so there's no point in arguing. She looks around the same height as Behati (who looks around 5'10" in pictures with Adam Levine):

Just says on 3/Dec/14

@Bishop Not even close. Even with the very high, compensated platform highheels, Taylor is still at least 2 inches shorter than 6'1 Karlie. Taylor is with these special compensated platform highheels the same height as 5'10 Adriana who's in normal highheels.

vfpswiftie says on 2/Dec/14

yes. victoria's secret fashion show proves that she's 5'9" at minimum

Laura says on 2/Dec/14

@ Mon, @ vfps swiftie, I have looked at numerous of pictures of them together because after I saw Taylor I was interested to see her height compared to Karlie Kloss. She does come close to Kloss's height when she is in very high heels, but she is still around two inches shorter. I haven't found any photos which they are dead set the same height and are both standing up straight/ or in same stance/pose.I honestly don't think she is any taller than 5"8.5, but that is my opinion.

Bishop says on 2/Dec/14

With higher heels, she looks very close in height to Karlie: Click Here

Igge says on 2/Dec/14

She looked more 5'9 at the Victoria's Secret Show from tonight

vfpswiftie says on 29/Nov/14

@Laura dont forget the photo of Taylor and Karlie at last year's VSFashionshow. Taylor's head was down a bit but shes about 4 inches shorter and Karlie must have grown taller and be 6'1.5" at that time. Clearly she is 5'9"-5'10". Her poor posture and always hunched back makes her appear shorter

Mon says on 28/Nov/14

"I have never seen a picture of Swift and Kloss in heels being the same height" Of course. Kloss is 4 inches taller. But there is a photo of them in the street with only Taylo in heels and she is looking around the height of Kloss. Here is a tip, when you look at a photo image search for all the ones taken on a particular occasion.

In other shots of that stellar group on the bench, Uptons heels do not look small at all, Taylors were moderate by comparison; not larger than Upton's, and she is 5'10''. Taylor Swift has to be at least 5'9''.

MM says on 28/Nov/14

Jimmy Kimmel is what, 5'11? She's wearing massive heels or platform heels here, and there's not that much difference. And here's a pic of them, I barely see a half an inch difference. She has to be at least 5'8-5'8.5. Click Here

Mon says on 28/Nov/14

She can't possibly be under 5'9''. A Rolling Stone journalist (not a star struck fan) who actually spent time with her said she looked significantly taller than the 5'10'' she said she was.

Who wears 5 inch heels to go walking in the street?; Taylor much more likely had around 4 inch heels walking outside with Kloss. Some of the photos were on sloped sidewalk ect. There is a shot taken on that day from in front (ie equal distance from the camera) when both was on the level in street. Taylor had around 4 inch gain from heels, and Taylor looked around the same height.

Just says on 27/Nov/14

In some pictures with Katie Holmes, Taylor seems like Katie's height. But in most pictures with Katie, Taylor is certainly shorter than Katie. Even in similar heels Taylor is shorter than Kate Upton Click Here

Laura says on 26/Nov/14

@vfpswiftie - I don't know if you have ever met or seen Taylor yourself, but I am just giving my opinion of what I saw. And I have never seen a picture of Swift and Kloss in heels being the same height, ever. The only time I have seen them look almost the same height is when Taylor has been in 5" heels and Kloss is in flats with her head down. My sister is 5"10.5 and when she is in 5" heels, she is never under 6"2.5 but actually measures exactly 6"3. My point is if Taylor were truly 5"10, she'd be taller than Kloss and if she were even 5"9, she'd be nothing less than the same height as Kloss. But she isn't.

vfpswiftie says on 25/Nov/14

no @BGee that's a tricky shot.Taylor is the same height as Karlie when wearing heels. She is 4 inches shorter than Karlie when both of them are in high heels

Mon says on 25/Nov/14

Taylor is 4 inches shorter and consistently looks it Karlie is 6'1.5'' so both seem as listed. Look at her with Kloss on the catwalk with both in heels or with Taylor in heels and Karlie in Nike frees. Taylor is over 5'9.5''

BGee says on 24/Nov/14

Best guess is 5'9 flat (not 5'8 as some claim, she still has an inch on 5'8 Rihanna). if she was 5'10 o 5'11 she would be near Kloss' height (especially in this pic w/ those heels Click Here) but is still smaller by about 3 - 4 inches even when Karlie is in flats!

vfpswiftie says on 24/Nov/14

no. she could not be 5ft7. her lowest could be 5ft8.5

she's as tall as karlie kloss in heels can't you see. the photo you saw probably has the camera angle which makes taylor appear shorter

184.3cm says on 24/Nov/14


Yeah i know, i have a better understanding of heels now that i read Rob's article on heel height. Taylor tends to wear the classic 6 inch heels which give more 4-4.5 inches. Ive seen her wear a platform a few times to get additional boost but she has also appeared in flats like she did on Ellen and looked about 5'9 there.

Laura says on 24/Nov/14

Harry Styles is taller than Swift. If he is 5"9.5, then she is about 5"8. I have seen Taylor in real life and she gives the illusion of being taller because she is extremely thin and fine boned. In all honesty, I would give her 5"7 minimum and 5"8.5 at the very most (she was wearing little shoes with heels when I saw her). If you also look at pictures with Karlie Kloss you can tell she isn't 5"10 or even 5"9. She is still 4 inches shorter than Kloss in 5" heels (so she would be gaining 4" in height from 5") when Kloss is in flats. Taylor is certainly above average height, but she isn't as tall as what she makes out.

Judd says on 23/Nov/14

@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.

184.3cm says on 22/Nov/14

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

shes taller than Rihanna who's listed at 5'8 in every pic

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.
