@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN) i will do dont worry, and thanks for the advice rob.
G 5'11 said on 27/Apr/17
Haha curse having a similar name to "Big G" I guess if I where to follow tradition in his foot steps and start asking Rob to list me as a strong 6 foot all hell would break loose! I can already see the jimmys being rustled.

@Christian-196.5(6ft53/8's) actually Infact i do measure around 5'11 in the afternoon, there's no need for me to be listed at an ultimate low that I barely even reach half the time, more often 5'10.75" at approx 7 or 8 which is only 1/4th below 5'11, so I don't see an issue with my 5'11 listing. I don't believe people should claim/ be listed be there low sure if I was a stronger 5'11 then it would be cool being over 5'11 the entire day but I'm not. Just because you're so precise with your height doesn't mean I have to be. well obviously your already tall so in your case it wouldn't matter what height you claim. Most guys shorter then me claim my height, guys who are easily an inch or two below me as well. Oh good ol people on celeb heights lmao.

-------

I've never heard of anyone who only shrinks a quarter inch from their out of bed height to their afternoon height. A 5/8" loss is the most common. But I guess you're a rare exception.
Bobby said on 27/Apr/17
@Peter 179cm, Well, I'm precisely 177.2cm but I understand your analogy. Anyway, my shoes only give an inch, they used to give 1.3 inches but they've worn down over the years. I say 5'11.5 range, because my morning height is 5'10.3, so it would be in that range. I'm not exactly 5'11.5 with the shoes on, but I'm close enough to say that I'm in that range. I have been thinking of getting some 1.5 inch height insoles though, a lot of us blokes want to appear taller than what we measure.

Peter 179cm said on 27/Apr/17
@ Bobby Yeah and dont forget you're 177 at night while im 179 (actually over 179.5 on most days but anyway).If you can reach 5'11.5 with shoes in the morning they must be pretty thick given you're under 179 at 5'10.3.Then again if you're a boot-wearing lad and want to appear taller i can understand that-who doesn't? I prefer to wear sneakers all the time and rarely formal shoes or boots but that's a different matter.
123 said on 27/Apr/17
according to Arthur i'm 5'8 7/8ths as this is my low before bed height, even though mid afternoon i'm 5'9 give or take a mm, or at worst one millimeter under if i have been on my feet after 7 hours
123 said on 27/Apr/17
people need to give that Connor dude a break yes he may be 5'11 31/32nd's at worst after 7-8 hours but who cares? @Arthur why are you so obsessed with a guy who after 8 hours out of bed would is 5'11 31/32nd's at worst let it go that 1/32nd of a inch he MAY be under 6'0" isn't significant, according to you I can't claim 5'9" because mid afternoon i'm 175.1-.2cm as opposed to 175.26cm which is the full 5'9 that less than 1/16th of a inch got you mad huh?, you want me to claim 5'8 3/4" as well?
177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN) said on 27/Apr/17
Hi Csimpson 6ft,
would you be so kind and make an out of bed measurement proof. Thanks.
Editor Rob:

a tip for Connor on achieving over 6ft 0.5 out of bed...drink a half glass of water, use one pillow and ensure it is 8 hours minimum sleep. When you wake up make the video within 30 seconds.
Csimpson 6ft said on 27/Apr/17
@Arthur whatever
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 26/Apr/17
Rob, G-5'11 is about 5'11.25" out of bed, so he can't be a flat 5'11" by afternoon. Arthur's right, G-5'11 is 5'10.5" at his low. Sorry but he's too overlisted. 5'10.5" or 5'10 5/8" would be the best listing.
Editor Rob: technically 5ft 10.75 might be more reasonable, but this is just a fun page for visitors.

It is useful for me, I like to know at least some of the visitors look like. Though if you asked to be listed like 'old G' at 5ft 8, it may not happen!
Bobby said on 26/Apr/17
@Peter 179cm, I feel similarly, because I'm roughly 5'11.5 with my shoes on in the morning, I feel a lot taller, and in the evenings, feel noticeably shorter.
MrFish said on 26/Apr/17
Rob, wouldn't 5ft 8 5/8 be 174.3 instead of 174.5? Also, at a solid half inch taller than you, if we stood side by side, would someone be able to tell that one had an edge over the other?
Editor Rob: a 1/3rd of an inch isn't that much...most would class people of that difference as equal.
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
Connor you're perfectly fine claiming 6'0" nobody is going to walk up and ticket you or arrest you for doing so. It's common a lot of 5'10 guys even saw a 5'9" claim 6'0" before. I had one idiot once who was no more than 2-3" taller than my wife look at me and say you're what 6'5/6'6? As soon as she said 6'4" he said well I'm 6'0" then my wife actually said "honey you're maybe 2-3" taller than me and I'm under 5'8". She claims 5'8" almost always but this time she did it for the sake. She's a weak 5'8" really like 5'7.7. Then of course got the morning messurers who claim 6'0" that are 5'11" or 5'11.25. This goes for you and Bobby you're both legit as you come. My only issue is when people aren't what they claim even if it's a morning/evening thing and inflate others. Sure they may not know it differs but when you tell someone that they're taller than they claim it's more insulting as you're basically saying they don't know what they are talking about and are essentially insulting their intelligence. This is exactly why I say I'm 6'4 as opposed to 6'5 or even say a bit over 6'4 or between 6'4-6'4.5 because I know depending on what shoes I wear I won't always appear over 6'4 sometimes maybe exact if I measure in casual shoes (3/4") at night I'd be exactly 6'5" in many cases sometimes less if I hit the extrem low. My philosophy is that if I measure it most frequently it's what I am and your evening height is the more frequent of the heights (anything 8 hours on in will be your normal low for the most part) especially if you are awake another 8 then you have thus averages that height for the greatest period of the day
Arthur said on 26/Apr/17
Csimpson 6ft said on 26/Apr/17
@Arthur nope i was out and i was on my feet for a few hours in the day, just give up already and accept that you are wrong.

I am wrong in what? Saying you are a weak 5'11? You are the definition of it. Why don't you post a morning video measuring 185 cm? That's what real 6 footers measure in the morning. Too bad
Michael R said on 26/Apr/17
Click Here Max morning height for me
Bobby said on 26/Apr/17
@Arthur, you mean 5'10.25 is your extreme? How do you even know that .75 inches is average height loss? It's different for everybody, especially since I only lose half an inch.
Michael R said on 26/Apr/17
if you look at dmeyer, he wakes up about 6'0.5 and is listed 5'11.5 this is why I'm so eager to see connors morning measurement because it truly will put all debate to an end.
Michael R said on 26/Apr/17
Connor looks to be even a bit above 5'11 7/8s for his night time measurement. So long as he is at least 6'0.7 in the morning I say he is a legit 6 footer. As for myself I tend to shrink a bit more then most which is why I'm skeptical of the minimal shrinkage that Bobby and Connor claim to experience. I can hold 6 foot 2 until 2-3pm waking up at 6:30am for school. In the morning if I get a good nights rest like on the weekend I can clear 6'2.5 in the morning easily.

G 5'11 said on 26/Apr/17
And rob my weigh is 160 if you want to add it to my listing. Do I need to provide a picture for proof or nah haha?
G 5'11 said on 26/Apr/17
@Peter 179 I know exactly what you mean, almost the same with me. Shoes take me to 6 foot for the most part but yeah you can notice the difference between 181-182 and 179 and 180. Don't get me wrong still a decent range but yeah.
Arthur said on 26/Apr/17
Connor is 5'11 7/8 at night, on an EASY day. I bet he stayed all day home lying on couches or whatever. I have measured as much as 5'10.5 on an lazy day at night, when my real usual low on an active day would 5'10.2 That's almost 1/3 of an inch less.

I believe the only thing that can give us a good idea is someone's height in the morning (because that's the tallest measurement he can achieve) substracted by 0.75 inches which is the AVERAGE height loss during the day. That's the only thing we can be sure of.

G 5'11 for example gave a morning height, he was a hair over 5'11.25 so he would be (ON AVERAGE) a hair over 5'10.5 at his low.

Bobby's biggest measurement has been 178.57 (lol again for the .57), if we substract 1.905 cm which is 0.75 inches (hey, I'll make it 1.9 cause I'm feeling generous 😉 )we get 176.67 cm on average. That would be an average person's low with Bobby's measurements.
Johnny said on 26/Apr/17
What happened to your stadiometer Connor?
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
My personal opinion is do it the way Rob does. He is 5'8 1/8" usually at a low. And that's 5 maybe 7 hours out of bed. If you drop much more like Bobby does (1/4") then you need to split the difference and take off another 1/8" then thats the listing 5'9 7/8" which rounds up on paper to 5'10". All this ironing out and using morning height etc or factitious numbers people use is nonsense. And Bobby and Connor that isn't directed toward you two as you both listed yourself to the forums exactly how you measure
?lvaro said on 25/Apr/17
Hey friends, excuse my English, I'm Spanish, but ... could you tell me how many centimeters or inches did you grow since the age of 17? Thank you.
Canson said on 25/Apr/17
@Christian: agreed Rob also if he's far away in height may list someone taller or shorter depending. He may see me as 6'4" or 6'4.5 or even 6'5". He has joe M as 6'4.75 (had him 6'5 before) but he can look near my height maybe 6'4.5. I know Rob tho uses his low for himself 5'8 1/8 and said his extreme is 5'8. Like you said yours I about a flat 6'5 your norm is 6'5.25 mine would be 6'4.33 or .25 then extreme little over 6'4". Me personally for the site purposes to keep consistent don't know how I'd be listed. Rob put Brady at 6'4.25 when he measured 6'4 3/8 but that's Morning he's prob more like 6'4 1/8 at a low

Peter 179cm said on 25/Apr/17
One thing i've noticed is that the height i'm in shoes through the day is about my out of bed height and it feels akward when i realize it.To me 181-182 feels noticeably taller than 179-180cm for some reason even though it's still a typical range.Also im thinking of a better method of estimating "true" height:Rather than measuring 8-12 hours after waking up we could measure straight out of bed and substract 2cm or so.That way even if someone can lose as much as 2.5-3cm on some days and barely 1.5 on others we can safely guess a range.For example someone arises at 185 he's really 183 for most of the day and can even go down to 182 on bad days.He's a perfect definition of a 6footer.
MrFish said on 25/Apr/17
Rob, if you want, you can downgrade me to 5ft 8 5/8ths (174.3 cm). I seldom measure that, but it's a safe absolute low for me.
Csimpson 6ft said on 25/Apr/17
I beg to differ Andrea i think i am quite mature, its Arthur who needlessly argues all the time on here about my height and Bobbys height and enjoys winding us up, if anyone is immature its him.
Csimpson 6ft said on 25/Apr/17
Rob do you think the reason why everyones height shrinkage is different is because its to do with the length of a persons torso/spine length?
Editor Rob: that is part of it, but some people will have slightly different disc ability to rehydrate.
Csimpson 6ft said on 25/Apr/17
Rob i think i will do a morning height measurement video tomorrow morning and perhaps even do an evening height video just to settle the argument once and for all, you even agree aswell that a guy who wakes at 6ft 0.5 and ends the day at 5ft 11 7/8ths can rightfully claim 6ft, i dont think Arthur realises that not everyones shrinkage in the day is going to be the same amount some can shrink an inch some can shrink less, in my case i only shrink half an inch, big deal lol
Editor Rob: yeah it's worth testing morning height, but make sure to do it within 30 seconds of wakening to ensure top morning measurement.
177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN) said on 25/Apr/17
IMO either Bobby or Connor should be Googles Chief Heightist
Andrea said on 25/Apr/17
No, 1.2 is not the average for sure! 😂😂😂
The average is indeed nearer 2 cms... You're generally a couple of cms taller in the morning!
Yeah, that's Rob's height loss but also mine, Josh, Alex and it seems that more than one guy here seem to lose even more than that!
Alex, who is textbook example of 6', I'm sure said to be near 185 out of bed, which is perfectly reasonable for him, considering he's around 6' at his low! Same thing for Josh, who said to have measured 5'11 in the morning and he is 178 at his absolute low (another textbook example, in this case of a solid 5'10). In fact, he gets listed at 5'10.25 on here and I'd list him at thar mark too, certainly no less than that (because at his very very worst he's still slightly over 5'10)! And he claims 5'10, too! And he would be a solid cm taller than you (and a couple of cms taller than you in the morning) 😜
Mr. Fish seems another decent guy, he said he wakes up around 5'9.5 (a mm over that, if I'm not wrong, just because I know that you're obsessed with fractions) and generally goes down to 5'8.75! Again, perfectly believable!
So the average loss does seem to be right around 0.75 inches...
Only you and Connor seem to lose a bit less than that... And you both sound very complexed about height! Coincidences?
To be fair to Connor, I think he has said to measure a hair over 6'0.5 first thing in the morning and to dip to 5'11.75, which the kind of range you'd generally expect!
G 5'11 said on 25/Apr/17
Click Here Here's the link to the video of my morning height measurement.
Editor Rob: ok thanks, what is the lowest you drop to?
G 5'11 said on 25/Apr/17
yes rob I'm able to do a measurement video, I'll post one up shortly. I just have to set it to private on you tube right? So only you/celeb height users are able to view it.
Editor Rob: G, set it to UNLISTED and then it will be viewable if you provide the link, but nobody can find it searching on youtube.
Bobby said on 25/Apr/17
@Andrea, That was Rob's average height loss throughout the day, not people's general. Remember he has said that someone who measures 6ft in the morning, may only 0.6 inches and another can lose almost an inch. However the way I remember is that the statistically average has been 1.2cm.
@DrucwLee, I measure way taller than 175cm.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 24/Apr/17
Rob, Michael R is right. Please upgrade Big Mike to at least 6ft1 3/4" (187.4cm). His 6ft1 5/8" measurement was his extreme low but his usual low is 6ft1 7/8", which is near enough for a 6ft2 listing, especially since you list 5ft11 7/8" Connor as 6ft and 5ft9 3/4" Bobby as 5ft10.
G 5'11 said on 24/Apr/17
Also in connection to my previous post, my weight is 160 pounds. My low is more 5'10.75. As I got that measurement at about 7:30 pm yesterday. 5'10.5ish was my low when I did heavy training at the gym, walked around campus for hours with a heavy school bag etc.but of course i would be considered a weak 5'11 guy.
Andrea said on 24/Apr/17
Of course it's the same for me... You're not a celebrity so you can claim whatever you want and get listed at any height you want! If you were a celebrity, though, I'd ask Rob to put you down at 5'9.75 ;)
Without considering the fact that videos like these proof nothing (and I'm talking in general)! No need to say how but it would be quite easy to alter your real height and "measure" taller than you really are! But do you think I care about that? Naaa... Get your 5'10 (6' in Connor's case) and be happy with that! In Big Alex and Big Josh's case, on the other hand, it is interesting to know how tall they are because they have met a few celebrities (and they both sound a lot more mature than you and Connor)...
And no, you're wrong! Half an inch loss throughout the day IS under average! Can't find it now but Rob did post a daily shrinkage graph at some point where you could have seen that in general a person does lose 1.8-2 from "morning to evening", so right around 0.75 inches (which is my and Rob's case, even if I can shrink as much as 2.2-2.3 cms on a long day)! And it also showed how you should drop the bigger amount of height in the first hours and then just a couple of mms, after 5-7 hours out of bed (so what you call "afternoon")! So, not only you drop just 0.5 inches in total but you also drop a quarter from morning to afternoon (which is certainly under average) and another quarter from afternoon to evening (which is certainly ABOVE average in that case)! "The curious case of Bobby"... They could make a movie :P
If you were a "normal" (meaning with an average height loss) person and you asked me "I am 5'10.3 in the morning, how tall do you think I am at my low?", I would say 5'9.5-5'9.75. But as you say, everyone's shrinkage is different. Whatever... Enjoy your 5'10 (AKA "almost 6'") listing :D
Bobby said on 24/Apr/17
@Johan, that's true, I get down to my low after working and exercising, but if I have an average day where I'm not doing anything strenuous, I don't quite hit my low, I stay around a flat 5'10 even after 5 hours. I've been guessed in at 6ft before, but in all fairness because I'm about 5'10.5 in the morning, I appear a big 5'11 with shoes on. That probably feed into it.
Michael R said on 24/Apr/17
At 5:41pm from being awake since 7am I am 6'1.75 exactly. 6-2 in the afternoon

G 5'11 said on 24/Apr/17
Hey Rob, can I get listed here? My morning height is usually 5'11.25(181-181.5) in the evening go down to 5'11(180.3-180.5, I am 5'11 or close to it for most of the day and towards the night time to about 5'10.75 and 5'10.5 as my ultimate low after training at the gym, long day walking around in school with a heavy school bag ( approx 179.5ish) here's a picture of me standing Click Here
And for my profile pic

Editor Rob: are you able to film on phone and upload a measurement clip like other guys?
Bobby said on 24/Apr/17
@Peter 179cm, I'm saying that sitting down won't help you recover height, or stop the height loss, you'll still go down. Unless you're lounging on a sofa or something, sitting still puts pressure on your spine, especially since most people will lean forward on the chair, like if they're typing on the computer. @Csimpson 6, Eh, I'm not really obsessed with the terminology, 5'10 is 5'10 to me. I mean, you're not gonna tell someone you're borderline 5'10 in conversation. Most people who measure .75 range or more, will round up, which is reasonable to do. They also round up at .5 range as well, now Rob is a little more precise about it, but he ultimately wouldn't call someone like Glenn a liar if he had claimed 5'7.
@Johnson, I only get 4mm or so with busting the gut.
@Blake, I haven't checked but I feel it'd be around 6ft, 5'11.5 at worst. It's hard to measure your own armspan without help.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 24/Apr/17
Arthur said on 22/Apr/17
@Johan

Rob lists himself and the others at their extreme lows

------

He for sure doesn't list celebrities at their extreme lows, as I've seen many instances where Rob would slightly overlist celebrities whom he took a photo with. I've seen instances where a 5'8.5" listed celeb was the exact same height as Rob even with no footwear disadvantage.
Johan said on 24/Apr/17
Bobby said on 22/Apr/17
@Johan, well considering you also claim 6'1, I don't see any reason why I wouldn't claim 5'10. Though in reference to Rob, he lists celebrities at what's he thinks they'd measure in the afternoon. Considering that 5'9 and 3/4s is my low, Rob would list someone with my stats at 5'10 because I'd be that in the afternoon. Of course what you are saying is indeed fair, but here on CelebHeights, there is morning' afternoon and evening height. Even Jenny claims 5'8 at 5'7 and 3/4s.

I claim 185 cm as we use metric here. I used to say 6 feet to people but always got told I was way taller so now I just say 6'1". I still get told that I'm 6'2" not just by friends but even doctors from work. It seems to be the norm now to claim height with shoes.

Like I said I think you claiming 5'10" is fine noone in day to day life will doubt you, its just here on celeb heights you have people listed to the eighth of an inch.

You can hit your low in the morning as well it all depends on physical activity, I rise at 5am and measured in at 186.6/7 cms which is about 6ft 1, 1/2 the last time I checked. Around 1 pm I got home and it wasn't that hard a day and I was already 184.9 cm which is close to my low its mm's off in fact.

In the weekend I rose around 7am and went for a 10 kilometer run when I got back home around 9am I was also down at 184.8/9 cm.
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
@Bobby: I'm not arguing against you. I'm in agreement with you. All I was saying is that what Arthur says is an observation it's just that he isn't saying clearly what he means. It's coming across to people as him downgrading someone when he isn't.
Michael R said on 23/Apr/17
Rob if Connor and Bobby get rounded up why can't I? I posted an extreme low, typically I'm a quarter inch higher than that. So if they can round up a quarter inch why cannot I be listed 6-2 I can post a morning proof that I wake 6'2.5-6
Editor Rob: if you gain more height you will get an update, although if you want to have 6ft 1.75, it's up to you really...let me know.
Dmeyer said on 23/Apr/17
I think up to 1cm round up from very low IS OK as many get measured late morning or after noon
Bobby said on 23/Apr/17
@Arthur, 1/4 and 1/8 are practically invisible to the naked eye. You won't see the difference. Why else do you think I round up at my night height? Which by the way, is a couple mm different from my afternoon height, which will be 5'10 measurably.
Csimpson 6ft said on 23/Apr/17
@Arthur nope i measured 6ft 0 1/8th not 6ft flat...
Johnson said on 23/Apr/17
Busting a gut adds 0.7 cm to your height. Rob explained that in a video
Editor Rob: it can vary from person to person...some might only get a small fraction, others might manage a cm or so!
MSJC said on 23/Apr/17
Hi Rob, i changed my username from Mark to MSJC, i just felt Mark was much more generic and i use MSJC on several other internet accounts. Hope it's cool :)
Editor Rob: yeah you can call yourself anything, well within reason, no sweary names ;)

Bobby 177.2cm is just a wee bit over 5ft 9.75 and thats right between 177.1 and 177.2cm, its acceptable for you to claim 5ft 10 but really youre neither a weak or legit 5ft 10 you can say you are a borderline 5ft 10 guy, i think thats fair.
Bobby said on 23/Apr/17
@Andrea, if it's all the same to you, I think I'll just stick with my 5'10, I measure that in the afternoon anyway. Also, half an inch is not under averages, its bang on average. As I said before, everybody's height loss I said different. Entirely dependent on genetics.
Peter 179cm said on 23/Apr/17
@ Johan That's true as well.From my experience i can measure as much as 0.5 inch less on a physically active day than a lazy day at the same exact time(i.e. 12am).So time has almost nothing to do with height loss-it all depends on level of activity and maybe sleep habits/body hydration level.
Peter 179cm said on 23/Apr/17
@ Bobby Sitting doesn't always slow down height loss.It only does when the chair is made of leather material or sth similar-a wooden or plastic chair/seat will still get you down to your low after sitting for a good amount of time(at least 4-5 hours) and i'm talking from observed experience.I'm attending a job seminar these days and we're using wooden chairs and sofas.After sitting on a chair and then on a sofa i got two different results on two consecutive days at around the same time of day:9 pm 12 hours out of bed i got 179.3cm and 180.0cm respectively.That's a whole 1/4 inch difference so this theory is interesting.Ofcourse everyone's shrinkage is different and torso size differs noticeably but still it's something worth observing,imo.

@Bobby What is your armspan measurement I wanted to compare mine is 182cm range
Arthur said on 22/Apr/17
@Johan

You have to remember that Connor uses the same stadiometer model that Rob uses. Rob has said several times that this particular model has 1/8 error, it gives 1/8 more. So when Connor measures 6 feet in the afternoon he is really 5'11 7/8. I believe Connor should be listed as 5'11 7/8 and Bobby as 5'9 3/4. Connor's extreme low is 5'11 3/4 and Bobby's is 5'9 5/8. So them listed 1/8 above their extreme low is absolutely fair I believe, but not 1/4, that's too much. Rob lists himself and the others at their extreme lows, yet only these 2 get 1/4 above their extreme lows just so they don't get upset. It is just a measurement. There are no ''perfect'' numbers.
Bobby said on 22/Apr/17
@Johan, well considering you also claim 6'1, I don't see any reason why I wouldn't claim 5'10. Though in reference to Rob, he lists celebrities at what's he thinks they'd measure in the afternoon. Considering that 5'9 and 3/4s is my low, Rob would list someone with my stats at 5'10 because I'd be that in the afternoon. Of course what you are saying is indeed fair, but here on CelebHeights, there is morning' afternoon and evening height. Even Jenny claims 5'8 at 5'7 and 3/4s.
Bobby said on 22/Apr/17
@Canson, I fall 1/4 of an inch below, my low is 177.2cm remember? That's 9.76 range.
Bobby said on 22/Apr/17
@Canson, I lose 1.3cm on average, that's still half an inch, however, when on campus, and in classes, I will be sitting down, sitting doesn't recover height, but it helps slow down the loss, you still shrink but slower than you would if you were working. Now of course, I do have to be on my feet when walking to bus stops and even have to run on occasion so I don't miss my commute, so I'm still moving around enough that height loss throughout accelerates. Also, I don't wake up at 5'10.5 Canson, I wake up at 5'10.3, but you could say I basically am in the morning since nobody could tell the difference. In about 5 hours, from what I've measured, I dropped to 177.4cm, which from a morning height of 178.57cm is 1.17cm... I was nearly at my low, which I tend to hit after 6 or so hours. Now, I was up at 7AM that day and got home around lunchtime, so 5 hours, and some minutes. Everybody's height loss is different, and I was also well hydrated, which is as Rob said, helps you maximize your height throughout the day. Now 176.9cm is my extreme low, (Funnily enough, the height comparison website I use rounds this up to 5'10) so I drop an extra 3mm from my normal low of 177.2cm. Some people drop less or more, it depends on genetics and nutrition mostly.
Andrea said on 22/Apr/17
"Bobby said on 28/Feb/17
Wake up at 178.47cm, and measure 177.2cm in very late evening, I took the average of those two and got 177.8cm, so I tell people I'm 5'10. "
Bobby's words, Canson! 178.47-177.2 is bang on half an inch, which is certainly an under average shrinkage (which is more 1.8-2, generally)!
To be honest, I don't wanna start a fight here... I don't care how tall Bobby or Connor are, really! All I can say is that claiming your low (not your lowest, which you might reach just under particular circumstances) is the best "choice", IMO... So, if I were Bobby, I'd just go with "about 5'10" or "177" in metric! That's it! Same thing with Connor. If he truly is 5'11 7/8-6' at his normal low and 5'11.75 only on very bad days, he's near enough to say 6', for sure!
Johan said on 22/Apr/17
People really need to stop with the whole evening height and afternoon height nonsense.

If you are sitting at home doing nothing but lounging then yes you will measure taller than usual even at night.

If you have a physical job then you will be near your low after 4 hours out of bed. Thats just a fact, time has nothing to do with it.

Extreme lows occur when you are dehydrated again happens a fair bit when you do physical work for hours on end. I highly doubt many people here see their extreme lows as many seem to be young student types.

In reference to the two posters everyone is discussing, I think Connor being listed at 6ft is fair, how many times has he posted videos/pics over the years? He always measures 6ft in the afternoon and you can see his feet in the clip so he isn't cheating. He is 5'11 7/8s at his low which is fine.

Bobby I would also list you as 5'9 3/4 as you are just over 5'9 1/2 at your low so while it is not extreme to claim 5'10", considering the people on this page and their listings it seems more fair.

I am similar to you in that I claim 6'1" to american friends but on Celebheights I would be listed as 6'0 3/4 as here Rob is very precise. He claims 5'8" 1/8...
Canson said on 22/Apr/17
@Andrea: he loses almost 3/4" not 1/2. He wakes 5'10.5. Now I do agree that his height loss is very odd to say the least. He drops from 5'10.5 and is still 5'10 until 4-5 hrs in which is very odd. I lose 1/2" in 2 or 2.25 hours I'm already down a full 0.5". That's not just because I'm 6'4". Anyone loses 1/2" within 3 hours. Christian is taller than I am by a full inch (waking up) and he loses less than I do in the earlier hours but still over half inch in 3 hours.

As for the picking on Arthur that everyone is doing he made a point which is a fact both Bobby and Connor drop below their marks. That is common that they do Arthur just mentioned it. Was it not said well? No it wasn't. And may have been slightly overblown. However, it's funny everyone jumps on he and Mike R but you don't see anyone saying anything to someone like Willes188 or 189 or 190 or Pucko (his damn name has changed multiple times) whe he flies off the handle because nobody agrees with him about his stuff that he says and begins insulting people because the celeb he discusses isn't as tall as they claim. Same goes for ice. I don't get why these two receive heat when they simply state opinions when you have these two guys coming on the site (one admittedly under the influence) berating people that don't make their fantasized over celebs the height they want them to be. At least they aren't berating or belittling people for no reason. They just take facts presented to them and analyze
Canson said on 22/Apr/17
Bobby you are 5'10". Connor you are 6'0" tall. Yes you both drop below the marks but claiming it is fine. You're much closer than a guy who wakes up 5'10 flat and 6'0" flat and are a full 3/4" shorter at night. I think this all got lost in translation because of the comments made on the General Height page where it was said that they drop below and are "weak" 5'10 and 6'0". In theory they drop below the mark yes but The definition of weak by Rob is falling 2/3-3/4" below that mark. 1/8" in connors case is nothing at all and even falling to 3/4" like Bobby does is not enough to denounce their claims. If that's what you all want to claim that's fine as long as you aren't inflating people who are a hair over who round down etc or saying something contrary to their claim
Bobby said on 21/Apr/17
@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN)

The walls and floors in my house are as level as could be humanly built, I use an aerosol can, stand tall (not forcing or taking a deep breath), and I always well above 5'10, just a touch under 5'10.5. Of course Rob is an honest 5'8, he's measured himself more times than I ever have. Look just understand one thing, you are taking things too far. Busting the gut is not recommended and that's not what any of us did.
Bobby said on 21/Apr/17
@Andrea, not complexed, just practical. I measured myself after 5 hours two days ago and I was 5'9 and 7/8s, so pretty much 5'10 still. That's why I claim it, and yes, I did grow 3.3 inches. I should know, I used to measure a flat 5'10 in the morning, now I don't. I measure 0.3 inches taller. That means I grew, though I personally do not care. Considering that afternoon height is a couple of mm taller than evening, is it unreasonable to even claim 177.8 from 177.2? Anyways, you're at least reasonable in what you're saying to me and entitled to your opinion but I never go down to a flat 177cm unless in extreme conditions. Rob would call me a weak 5'10 with my stats, but I just class myself as a 5'10. It's just a height for me, and if I measure it, why claim anything else?
JKE 168cm said on 21/Apr/17
177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN)

What! You don't think Robs a honest 5ft 8 even though he has made several videos measuring his height! How do you get a whole cm from the busting gut method too, I don't get more than a mm or so.
Andrea said on 21/Apr/17
Lol, this page is getting even worse then the General Height one...
Bobby, no offence but you sound even more complexed than Connor (and it's not easy :D)!
The fact is that there isn't a unique and global rule that says your "real" height is your low (or even your lowest)... There isn't! Rob does list the celebrities at the height he thinks they would measure in the afternoon and I totally agree with that, meaning that in the afternoon you will be very close to your low and really not much different than what you call "evening height"! There isn't really much difference between afternoon and evening height, a couple of mms maybe but not much more! The daily shrinkage is probably different from person to person but your case is very "curious", to be honest! You basically drop around a quarter inch from morning to afternoon and another quarter from afternoon to evening... After 5-6 hours out of bed, you should be pretty damn close to your low! The first hours is when you should drop a "noticeable" amount, after that you shouldn't really lose that much! I think that claiming your afternoon (aka evening, for what I've said) height is the most reasonable thing to do meaning that you can be sure that you'll never measure below that mark! As for your height, you can claim whatever you want (even "almost 6'") but I myself would classify you more in the almost 5'10 range (177)! At that height, you're certainly near enough to say "about 5'10" or whatever but, since this is celebheights and even quarter inches mattter, you're more 5'9.75 than 5'10, IMO! And you must have a pretty short torso, too (considering that you say to lose only half an inch through the day)! And no, you probably won't grow anymore! You certainly don't look like a late bloomer in your photo and videos, at all! And I'm sure you didn't grow as much as you say after 17... You're just trying to convince yourself you will grow! Just accept your height and live with it! 177 is right around average, which is probably not that bad ;)

You're not taller than Bobby. You only get an extra mm or two from busting a gut method you just got measured wrong

Respond:
My morning peak with 'busting a gut/raised eye-level' is 179.5cms - pretty much the way Connor stands in each of his clips. Taking a deep breath out it's 178.4... Remember, for wall inclination/socks and hair I substract 3mms. Therefore I think Bobby never hits 5ft 10 measured properly. IMO Editor Rob is not a honest 5' 8", so he is generous with you guys...

The German Passport Office measures everybody with a stadiometer, I tried to stand my tallest. 178 (late morning).

@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN), I didn't do busting a gut mate, I stood with a normal relaxed tall posture, with bust a gut, I get 179.07cm.
Editor Rob: yes Bobby, I think standing tall but not busting a gut is the way to go.
Bobby said on 20/Apr/17
@Johnny, another thing I should mention is that 1/4 of an inch is pretty much invisible to the naked eye, I don't see why anyone would argue over insignificant details like that. Surely we've got more important things to worry about, such as our health, right?

@Johnny, yup, I'm 9.76 at night, and I round up to 5'10. I'm only 1/4 of an inch off.
Bobby said on 20/Apr/17
@Blake, depends on how tall your parents are and when they stopped growing. My dad was 6ft at peak height and actually grew another inch by mid 20s. My mom was 5'5 (I question that because I'm at least half a foot taller than her, so I figure she's 5'4 or something). I grew 3.3 inches from 17 until now, at 22. Don't listen to the troll who thinks I'm lying about my height and age. I measure 178.57cm in the morning and 177.2cm at night, I checked my height after 5 hours of being on my feet yesterday, and I was 5'9 and 7/8s, or 177.4cm. I was 5'7 at 15-17, before I shot up again.
?lvaro said on 20/Apr/17
Hey friends, excuse my English, I'm Spanish, but ... could you tell me how many centimeters or inches did you grow since the age of 17? Thank you.
Johnny said on 20/Apr/17
@Connor If you fall 1/4 inch shy of a particular mark you can always round up. There is no harm in that. A guy like Big G rounds up 1.5 inches. But since its celebheights where people argue over 1/4 inches for years it would be honest for you to claim 5ft 11.75 here. But in real life you can always claim 6ft and nobody will call you a liar.
Blake said on 19/Apr/17
So would you say getting to around Bobbys height 177cm I have a good chance of? I just always thought at 16 that most boys grew more than half an inch or an inch, but I could be wrong. Rob just for you I will now not comment on my own height unless I have grown :)
Editor Rob: if your parent heights were 1-2 inches taller, I'd say yes it might be a greater chance of hitting 5ft 10...but honestly, just wait and see.

Having a regular check every 3 months isn't bad, but it's when kids start doing once a week measurement...it may have a negative effect on health.
Bobby said on 19/Apr/17
@Csimspon 6ft, I'm gonna stop you right there. 177.2cm is my normal low in the evenings, and that's actually 9.76 range. Now, I've been up since 7AM, and got home thirty minutes ago, so Ive been on my feet mostly for 5 hours. I measured myself at 177.4cm, or 5'9 and 7/8s. So I hold 5'10 quite well actually. So I'm not 5'9.75, that's my low, not my afternoon height. Today was a different day, but it proves that after 4 hours, I still measure 5'10 on the nose and can still pass for 5'10 after 5-6 hours. After 7 or more hours, I will be at my low.
Bobby said on 19/Apr/17
@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN), it's very simple. The half inch increment is 0.5, so 5'10.5 is 179.07cm exactly, the mark I made with the pencil for my morning height was close to 5'10.5, so I made another mark for 5'10.5 and measured the difference using a ruler. The difference was 5mm, so I subtracted 0.5cm from 179.07 and got 178.57cm. Simple math. My measuring tape doesn't have metric values, so I had to figure out my morning height using metric. Do you understand?
Blake said on 19/Apr/17
How come on the about celebheights page you said to someone 17-21 is about an inch growth when he spoke about his wrist x-ray Im 16 and a couple of months old btw
Editor Rob: based on what you say about your parents height and the growth you've seen over last year, I'd say if I was you I'd be happy with an inch and if you gained 2 then you'd be bang on average for an 18 year old in England.
Csimpson 6ft said on 19/Apr/17
You could argue that Bobby is actually 5ft 9.75 if his low height is 177.2cm and with a absolute low of 5ft 9 and 3/8ths, but me going with 5ft 11 7/8ths is a stupid claim no offence Arthur but do you ever see anyone ever go with their low height as their real height and do you even realise how small 1/8th of an inch is? Lol that's only 3mm! You must have super good vision if you can see such a microscopic difference, and must I keep reminding you that I am mostly 6ft throughout everyday in the afternoon? Which is your real height by the way...seriously you're obsessed man, get over it im 6ft end of story.

@Arthur, Connor only made one Measurement video in which he was measurably 6ft tall. I made a morning and an evening video, and kindly asked Rob if he could reflect my afternoon height which will be a flat 5'10. If you measured my range, you'd claim 5'10 too, most people would, in fact a majority will.

Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 18/Apr/17
@Bobby

Shiva's 182.5 in the afternoon, which is closer to 6ft (182.9) than 5ft11.5 (181.6), so why would him claiming 6ft be a "feeling generous" thing? Are you saying that adding just 0.4cm to your actual height is enough to be a generous claim? Personally I think "generous" is if you add at least 1cm to your actual height.
Jke 168cm said on 18/Apr/17

Csimpson 6ft said on 18/Apr/17
zars no offence but how exactly is Bobby anything like Glenn? He doesnt exactly claim 1.5 inches over his real height, his low height is 177.2cm thats only rounding up by 6mm, yeah thats a very big claim.
Bobby said on 18/Apr/17
@zars, why's that? I'm not lying about my height, or inflating myself by two or more inches, like Glenn. I think some people need to stop being so anal and just accept that I am 5'10. End of story. Weak or strong, I don't care. It's a height, and I measure it.
Blake said on 18/Apr/17
Rob, if you where going to bet on what height I would end up what would you guess. I think I will end up 5 ft 9 to 9.5 because im 5 ft 8.25-5 now at sixteen and a couple of months.
Editor Rob: Blake I would say be content with whatever your final height is, which might be a solid 5ft 9.
Bobby said on 18/Apr/17
@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN), alright, first order of business, your nickname is a pain just to type out on a tablet. Second, 5'9.25? How can that be, when my low is 177.2cm? Third, do you even understand basic arithmetic? I lose the .3 inches over a period of 4 hours, so I woke up at 10pm today, I won't go down to a flat 5'10 until about 4pm. Then from there, I'll gradually go down to my low. Didn't use a magnifying glass, just measured the distance between my morning height and the half inch using millimetres, found it was 5mm, used my calculator, and discovered it was 178.57cm. I used math, not a magnifying glass. Meanwhile you wanna upgrade Glenn and downgrade me an inch. How can I measure so low when I wake up over 5'10?
Arthur said on 18/Apr/17
Lol. Bobby and Connor are the only ones not listed at their low heights like EVERYONE else on this page just so they don't get upset. They should be listed as 5'9 3/4 and 5'11 7/8 respectively.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 18/Apr/17
Rob, why do you list some people here as a tenth of a cm, and others you just round up/down to the nearest full cm? For example, you list Bobby as 177.7 instead of 178, yet DMeyer as 182 when 5ft11.5 is 181.6
Editor Rob: it's only the last two I bothered putting the extra decimal place as they were the most recent.
zars said on 18/Apr/17

Bobby said on 17/Apr/17
@shiva182cms, you should claim to be 5'11.5, possibly even 5'11.75, or if you're feeling generous with yourself, a shade under six feet tall.

PS: You could claim afternoon height, so 182.5cm in inches would be, 71.8, so you could claim 5'11 and 7/8s, and round up to 6ft if you wanted to.

@Editor Rob,

If you take the average of your height in the morning and evening isn't it around 174 or 174.5? Also your height in the afternoon and for most of the day is 174 . Why do you claim 5'8 and not 5'8.5?

My morning height is 173.5 (sometimes slightly more around 173.7 ) and ranges from 172.5 to 172 in the evening. What height would you say I am in feet and inches. Can I claim 5'8?
Editor Rob: I drop down to a low of 5ft 8 1/8th, but if I measure at 11am I would be 5ft 8.25 range most of the time. It can depend on how active I am during a day.

For your stats, it is still ok to say 5ft 8, Jenny drops to that 172cm range and she absolutely still says 5ft 8...if she was 5ft 7.5 at night, well, I might have words with her about a new claim 😉😉
Bobby said on 13/Apr/17
@ibra, you're a decent 6'3.
Bobby said on 13/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, oh that's cool, I was just asking because one wall gives me a 3mm error, so I'm not sure if it's the floor or whatever, the other walls give me consistent measurements. By the way, what if your low was 5'8.75in, would you claim 5'9 to other people? You seem like someone who would be more precise about it, or say "Just about 5'9." Whereas other people would round up th quarter inch.
Editor Rob: Bobby, before CelebHeights it is hard to say, but at least I always was 5ft 8 and never claimed 5ft 9...
ibra said on 13/Apr/17
Hi Rob if I wake up at 191,5 cm on the nose and go to bed at 188,5 at very low should I say I'm 190 cm when asked by people?

Editor Rob: depends on a lot of factors...the can might slip, you might use the thicker part of the pencil or pen and so put a scoremark 3mm under where it should be...
Bobby said on 12/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, if some walls in your house have baseboards, can this throw off your height measurement? I'm just asking because my house has baseboards, and I was curious to know if this can impact the measuring of your height or not.
Editor Rob: baseboards (or skirting boards) might have a tiny effect as it will change the tape measure very very slightly...but we are talking tiny amount....unless the baseboard was really thick like over an inch.
Bobby said on 10/Apr/17
@Peter 179cm, I use both metric and imperial since Canada uses both units of measurement, but Inise metric for calculations since it's more precise. Whybthe variation in what you claim? I'd claim 180cm at least.
Peter 179cm said on 10/Apr/17
@ Bobby I never use the imperial system in everyday life as metric is what my country and most countries around the world have adopted years now.So in that sense i claim both 179 and 180 but mostly 179cm.
Bobby said on 9/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, Frank seems like he'd be a decent six foot. Especially next to Glenn.
Editor Rob: he was shorter than alex who is basically an honest six footer.
Bobby said on 9/Apr/17
@Peter 179cm, I think even with your particular shrinkage, I'd just tell people I was 5'11, that half inch doesn't mean anything really. People won't call you out on it.
Peter 179cm said on 9/Apr/17
@ Bobby My posture is average and i usually drink lots of water,orange juice or even coffee for that matter,usually 2 cups a day but i'm trying to cut out on instant coffee as it doesn't have any benefits at all,imo.Back to the point,i guess i've inherited the shrinkage of a six footer(6'0++) but i'll cope with it xD.
Bobby said on 9/Apr/17
@Peter 179cm, everyone loses varying degrees of height throughout a day, I only lose 1.2-1.4cm, I haven't gone down more than this from what I've noticed. It is true though, that someone who wakes up at nearly 182cm, shouldn't be losing 3cm or more, maybe you're not well hydrated, or have poor posture? Many factors can influence how much you lose. I'd say only people with extremely tall statures could even lose that much height.
Ricardo said on 9/Apr/17
Rob, thanks for your previous answer. I've measured my out of bed height and it was in between 179.5 -180, then after two hours of having gotten up, my height was about 179, then I measured my height at the end of the day, it was about 178. That day I took the measurements, I was at home, helping doing some chores, sitting, and there were also a few laying downs on my sofa when I was reading a book, so that day was a normal day. I assume my height might fall down to 177.5 if I had a very hard, long day. I always have claimed to be 178, because that was the height I got measured once, so I think my claim has been accurate after all. What do you think?
Editor Rob: claiming 178cm is perfectly reasonable.
Peter 179cm said on 8/Apr/17
Why out of bed height vanishes so fast? Literally in the first 5-10 minutes i can lose up to 6-7 mms and then gradually drop another 1-1.5cm on normally active days.Most annoying of all is how on Earth can i wake up at almost 182 and drop to barely 179 or even less when my spine is not even that long...It's just mindblowing how physics can affect height that much and you only realize it once you get
Shredder said on 8/Apr/17
Rob , how do you know G is 225 lbs?
Editor Rob: he was at least 200-205 range in person 9 years ago, and looks heavier today.
Ricardo said on 8/Apr/17
Rob, I am an user of this website to learn about celeb's height and height in general but I usually am not commenting on it. h
However, I have an question to you today. Can you please tell me what's the typical loss of a person under 6ft? what do you mean by, say, 178-179 range? What's a decent 5ft10 guy ? strong 5ft10 guy? are those concepts the same?
Editor Rob: Ricardo, there is a good chance of losing between 3/4 and 1 inch of height...but it can vary. One person who is 6ft might only lose 0.6 inch, another could even lose 1.25 inches!

A strong 5ft 10 would be around 178cm afternoon height and hold 5ft 10-10.25 range.

I'd put myself into a strong 5ft 8 category, not quite enough to claim 5ft 8.5 though because I fall under that...
Michael R said on 6/Apr/17
Also don't know if you need weight and shoe size but I'm a size 12 US and weight about 230 as of now. 16 years young
Editor Rob: I'll put in weights for anybody, but I wanted to streamline this page to height/weight and any link to a measurement.

There's a strange perception on some sites that it is shorter people who visit height sites, but it really is a wide variety of people from all countries and standing tall at all sorts of heights...
Bobby said on 7/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, Rob, is it possible to hit your usual low, and even dip a millimetre under, after working for say... 5 hours? It's not yet 5pm, and I've already hit my low due to an arduous day. It's 4:39pm right now. Typically on average days, I don't get to my low until 6:30pm and even hold that measurement at 10pm.
Editor Rob: Bobby, yes, 5 hours of effort can bring you to lowest...if you push it and do another few hours there's a chance of another little tiny creep downwards.

Hey rob this is the info you need to add me to the user page.
Measurement: Click Here (extreme low)of about 6'1.6 typical low of around 6'1.8 my morning on a really good nights rest clears 6'2.5 creeping close to 6'2.75 once I have the time i will make another morning video but usually im waking up for school early on 4-5 hours rest. on the weekend when i can get a full 8 hours i get my full morning. Been a fan of celebheights since i was very young and pretty cool to get on the user page. "Big Mike" haha

Editor Rob: ok cool you managed to get your video and photo sorted, you are a good example of a 187cm range guy.
Judd said on 6/Apr/17
Editor Rob: he is in that zone where many guys will say six foot, though if he went with low then 5ft 11.75 seems reasonable.

If he was a celeb then what might be his listing? 5'11.75/182cms?
Editor Rob: Judd, it really depends on how he looked...he might be a guy who can pull off a six foot appearance very comfortably!
Michael R said on 6/Apr/17
Rob i will add my video. I'm still growing though I was 5'10 only 9 months ago and now I'm almost 6'2 I hope this keeps going but probably not seeing as my dad is 5'10. My legs even have been experiencing a bit of pain.
Blake said on 6/Apr/17
It is a shame I didn't hey hello to you last year when I saw you in London. However my family being there made it awkward for me! I would have had to reveal all my height knowledge to them it would have been very embarrassing for me.
Editor Rob: nothing embarrassing about having an interest in height...
Bobby said on 6/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, thanks for bumping me up to my afternoon height Rob, much appreciated.
Editor Rob: it's no problem, you made the effort to do a video of height, I know I've talked a bit on youtube (although I don't quite have time for youtube just now, it's better spent on this site).
Bobby said on 6/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, I sort of messed up with trying to show you the mark but if you pause the video at 2:20, you'll see the mark I was talking about, it's the second mark, the one just under the half inch mark (I have it there for reference more than anything, the half inch mark I mean).
Judd said on 6/Apr/17
Rob my young cousin got measured by me with a stadioneter and those are the results:

After 6 hours since he woke up on a working day: 182,2-182,4 cms
After a long working day no hydrated and no gym: 182,0-182,2 cms
After a long working day no hydrated but with gym: 182,0 cms
At the end of a good day (Saturday): 182,2 cms

In feet what is his best listing between:

A) 5'11.65/182,0cms
B) 5'11.75/182,2cms
C) 5'11.85/182,5cms
D) almost 6'
Editor Rob: he is in that zone where many guys will say six foot, though if he went with low then 5ft 11.75 seems reasonable.
Bobby said on 6/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, here is th link to my morning Measurement video: Click Here

I measured 178.57cm at 8:20AM.

Can you reflect my average height, which is 5'10 rather than my low?
Editor Rob: ok you can be listed at 5ft 10.
Blake said on 6/Apr/17
It would feel more authentic if I got to meet you before getting my picture up on the website
Editor Rob: that is true...
Bobby said on 5/Apr/17
@Editor Rob,

Here is a link to my evening Measurement video on YouTube: Click Here (I measured 5'9.75 or 177.2cm at 6:30pm and this is a measurement that is consistent well into the evening)

And just to make sure you've received it, here is a link to a picture of me: Click Here

Cheers Rob, I'll add a morning height Measurement video later but for now, this is what I've got. I hope it's all to your satisfaction.
Editor Rob: ok thanks Bobby for managing to upload your video.
Csimpson 6ft said on 5/Apr/17
Rob about your reply to Johnny, what did you mean when you said you might upgrade my height to 1/8th of an inch? Do you think i am a strong 6fter? or was you just saying that to make me feel better because of the hate im getting?
Editor Rob: Johnny is just having a little button push, don't worry...I'm leaving you at 6 foot flat. Rest easy...
Csimpson 6ft said on 5/Apr/17
And 5ft 11.75 isnt my everyday normal low Johnny 5ft 11 7/8ths is, 5ft 11.75 is my absolute low/extreme low.
Blake said on 5/Apr/17
This is like the celebheights hall of fame. I will add myself on here if I ever get to meet you in person and take a photo with you.
Editor Rob: there is no restriction now.

If you posted on here regularly, or been around a while, I'll add you to the list if you can do a simple measurement video.
Johnny said on 5/Apr/17
@Rob did you ever ask Big G to do a measurement video?
Editor Rob: since he's no longer posting, I doubt he would ever take a video.

Although, I should say he should do a video showing his best morning measurement. He insisted he was 5ft 8 out of bed, so why not show it and this would actually be an excellent research point that people can shrink nearly 1.5 inches.
Bobby said on 4/Apr/17
@Editor Rob,

Rob, here is a picture showing my height: Click Here

And here is a picture of my face: Click Here

I hope these are sufficient enough for you list to me on the page as 5'10.

PS: Sorry Rob, wasn't aware I could even shorten my URLs, but the above links should both link to my pictures, which can be used.
Editor Rob: there was a reason I had to - years ago - ask people to use tinyurl or bit.ly to link to images - to reduce spam.

It's a minor nuisance, but believe me, on my end the amount of spam I see is minimal.
MrFish said on 3/Apr/17
Rob, thanks for adding me! However, don't you think 5ft 8 7/8 is a bit too much? I think 174.7 is a bit closer to 5ft 8.75in. It's your call.
Editor Rob: you wanting a downgrade already, how reasonable of you ;)

Csimpson 6ft said on 3/Apr/17
Johnny everyones amount of shrinkage is various, Rob wouldnt have even listed me at 6ft if he didnt think i was that tall.
Bobby said on 3/Apr/17
@Editor Rob, so if I wanted to have a listing on this page, I would need a profile picture, and a picture or video proving my height? If a picture, would I need something for scale, like standing next to a height meter or some such?
Editor Rob: yes, either upload a photo or even a little clip to youtube of height measured.
Johnny said on 3/Apr/17
Connor is in the same range as John Barrowman, Mads Mikkelsen IMO, a weak 6ft falling to 5ft 11.75 in the evening. Rob you should really list Connor at 5ft 11.75. You list yourself at 5ft 8 1/8th since you don't drop under it but Connor falls to the 182 cm range.

Csimpson 6ft said on 2/Apr/17
@Peter 179cm i did that before and the lowest ever i dipped to was 5ft 11.75.
Editor Rob: I have the final word...I might even upgrade Connor 1/8th of an inch as he never stood as tall as he could I believe...
Wrs567 said on 3/Apr/17
Connor in my opinion is the same height as footballers Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard

A good 6fter
Blake said on 3/Apr/17
Was there any proof Mamun was actually 5 ft 8?
Editor Rob: he measured himself a few times around 5ft 8 range, and was more believable as he looked noticeably taller than our friend Big G.
Johnny said on 3/Apr/17
Then you must be 5ft 11.75(182 cm) range in the evening Connor. Shorter than Big Alex who is in the 6ft 0.75-1 range out of bed.
Csimpson 6ft said on 3/Apr/17
Christian i measure 6ft 0.5 out of bed
Shredder said on 3/Apr/17
Looks like Mamun admitted to his real age lol. Btw Alex is 32 going on 33. I use to talk to him on facebook.
Editor Rob: there's only so long you can be a 17 year old!

What is your out of bed height? Assuming that it's 6ft0.75, it's normal to lose a full inch throughout the day after a long strenuous weight-related workout.

@Rob do you think Frank2 deserves a listing on this page. I am relatively new in the site but I have read a lot of old comments from 2005-2006 including Frank2's comments. If he was really telling the truth he could have been the top visitor to this site because he met more than half of the classical Hollywood actors, actresses, directors, producers.....including the big John Wayne!
Editor Rob: he had a couple of names during his time here.

@ Csimpson 6ft Try measuring after a hard day lifting weights and being on your feet most of the time.You could go down to 5'11.5 which is possible if you wake up at 184cm.
CD said on 1/Apr/17
@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN)

No offence but that's a ridiculous suggestion. Connor's eye level in his video appears to be 5ft 8-9 WITH HIS EYES RAISED UP, his eyelevel will still be somewhere between 5ft 7 and 8 when looking straight ahead, as a 6ft guy should be. Socks don't add anything either and I'm pretty sure he flattened his hair down...

177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN) said on 30/Mar/17
@CSimpson
I recently watched your videos, you mentioned 5ft 11.75 low and almost 6ft 0.5 peak out of bed. I actually dunno if you're Stadiometer got an 1/8th error but what's pretty obvious: the eye-level is raised in each of those clips... you have to look straight forward 90°. Taking into account busting a gut, socks and thick hair you would not even reach 5ft 11.5 with a laser-measurement...

No my morning height is a solid 6ft and half inch and my normal everyday low is 5ft 11 7/8ths, my absolute low is 5ft 11.75 so overall its fine for me to say im 6ft...
Dmeyer said on 31/Mar/17

By the way the average human body can loose up to 6cms... so 0.75" seems to be a very leazy day.

But different topic. If your voice is real you could even got away with a 10ft claim - if you turn off the lights ;)
CD said on 30/Mar/17
Rob I noticed you have Big G's evening listed at 5ft 6 3/8ths, is this based on the fact that he might have shrunk now?
Editor Rob: today yes he'll measure around that.

Jenny the other day (when measuring a pair of her sneakers) came in at 6pm a solid 5ft 7 5/8ths range...

We all shrink...well, except for myself of course!

Sorry im asking you so many questions Josh B but do you know how tall you where when you turned 16? I just wanted to see if I have still have a chance to get close to your height my armspan is 182cm similar to yours and im 5 foot 8 and a bit and early 16.

Bobby said on 22/Mar/17
@Peter 179cm, that's fair. I am 5'10.30 in the morning though. You measure 5'11.5 in the morning, or a little bit over that. Shouldn't you claim 180.3cm or 5'11? I wouldn't expect you'd go under 5'11 by much, even if you did.
Csimpson 6ft said on 22/Mar/17
Wow Rob i didnt know you added me on the celebheights user heights page! thanks

If any other regular visitor wants added just let me know, only provision is a real photo 😉
Peter 179cm said on 21/Mar/17
@Bobby Claiming 5'10.5 when you're below it even out of bed is inaccurate.It's like me claiming 5'11.5 in the morning since i'm 181.7cm fresh out of bed.It's always best to go with the actual figure.
Bobby said on 20/Mar/17
I only lose 1.2cm throughout the day, I'll go down another 1-2mm if I have an arduous day, but that rarely happens.
Bobby said on 20/Mar/17
@so, I think you can reasonably claim to be 6ft considering your normal low is 5'11.75, my normal low is 5'9.8 as my morning height is 178.57cm or 5'10.3 (5mm from half inch mark, debating if I should round up and say I'm 5'10.5 in the morning, or just say I'm nearly 5'10.5 in the morning). Since you're almost six feet at night, with standard running shoes, you'd be pretty close to 6'1. It sounds reasonable and natural to say you're 6ft, I wish I had your height. 5'10 is a good height, but I'd love those two extra inches.
Bobby said on 20/Mar/17
@cm, Yeah, I know a 6'5 guy (genuine 6'5, not fraudimg) who refers to me as tall, and I'm 5'10 which to be fair is actually above average worldwide, but I suppose he can't distinguish if I'm six foot or not. Most really tall guys tend to have a hard time figuring out how tall someone is if they're 5 inches or more taller. This happens in the reverse when someone is 5 or more inches shorter than you. So if you're half a foot taller than someone, and say "Hey, I'm six feet tall." They won't call you out on it, unless they've seen genuine six foot tall guys.
Bobby said on 20/Mar/17
@Peter 179cm, I think I may have grown a tad more. My morning height is now 178.57cm or exactly 5mm off the half inch mark. Not sure if I should claim the half inch or tell people I'm almost 5'10.5 in the morning. Now my evening height is 177.3cm, so either way, saying I'm 5'10 is reasonable enough since I'm less than a quarter inch under at night, and quite a bit over in the morning.
the Slav said on 9/Mar/17
@Revisionist
Measure yourself right out of bed and after 6-7 hours consecutively on foot
Peter 179cm said on 8/Mar/17
@ Revisionist Maybe you're just lucky or spend most of the day lying on a bed.Well if you're below 170cm it's understandable since shorter people have smaller spines and therefore shrink less.
Revisionist said on 8/Mar/17
For those of you losing over 2cm a day, especially DMeyer, have you considered stretching exercises and better hydration? How much water (pure water, not coffee) do you drink daily? Do you have a job that requires a lot of lifting?

I don't think that a healthy person working a white collar job should lose more than 3/4 of an inch (1.9cm). I typically lose only 1cm!
so said on 4/Mar/17
Cheers Rob! I think I'll stick to 5'11.75 it's more honest and has more edge than 6ft.
so2211 said on 4/Mar/17
Hey Rob, When I wake up in the morning, I measure out at 183cm but in the evening i measure out around 180/181cm. So throughout the day, it could be assumed that i would measure out at 182cm. So if someones asks me for my height what should i say?
Editor Rob: saying 181 I think is fair. If I had those stats you had, it is probably what I'd go with.
so said on 3/Mar/17
I measured myself and I'm 182cm this was after a 2mile walk and 9 hours after a woke up. Should I claim 5'11.75 or 6ft? I measured in the morning at 184.5cm. What would you say rob?
Editor Rob: for a portion of the day you sure will be a six footer...and at worst these figures suggest you fall a fraction under.

It would be very reasonable to tell people you were about 6ft, or 'almost' if you want to seem even more honest.
Peter 179cm said on 2/Mar/17
@ Βobby Sounds reasonable since you're almost 5'10 at night,even though you're also close to 5'10 in the morning.

Hey rob I got a question I wake up at exactly 6 foot and I havent measured my low height what would you guess it would be? Also I only guess being 181 I may be slightly higher not sure as the 180 mark is right on my hairline and what height should I claim
Editor Rob: J, optimistically almost 5ft 11.5...probably 5ft 11.25.

Sorry if I offended you, That was not my intention at all just making a bit of a point on saying In the real world is someone really going to tell the difference between a 5'11.5 or 5'11.75 and a 6'0 guy?, You said 6'0 is tall and 5'11.75 not considered it that is 0.25 inch difference seems odd.

In my opinion Height isn't something that anyone should obsess over as it is nothing that we cant control the only thing you can do is eat well and exercise thats it really but thats just my opinion of course, we are all entitled to believe what we want though
Peter 179cm said on 24/Feb/17
@ anon There's people who can't tell a 3cm difference,let alone 0.5cm which is practically invisible.And indeed,height rarely comes up and when it does it's for the extreme ranges (very short and very tall)-average height people don't really get any sort of positive or negative comments and even short ones will not be referred as often.

@anon its just peoples opinions theres no need to be a dick
anon said on 23/Feb/17
5'11.75 and 6'0 a 1/4 Inch difference lol massive difference some of you sound crazy not being funny, How can 6ft be classed as tall and 5'11.75 not its nothing in it, no one outside of hardcore height conscious people in the real world are going to measure to the exact mm, nearest fraction so why obsess over it.

5ft11.75 is tallish of course, It's above average at that height you don't need to worry anyway hell even if your 5'9-5'10 your going to never look short, just normal average type range, I honestly have no Idea why people obsess and care that much about something they cant control the only way height even comes up is if you are really very tall like 6'4 plus or very short like a guy under 5'6, who go's out and talks about height?

Sorry for the long post
CS said on 23/Feb/17
What I find interesting is when genuinely tall (6'0 +) guys refer to a guy who is in the 180-182 cm range as tall. I've seen it happen on several occasions. I don't know if it's just the "tall" term being thrown around loosely or what. What do you think of that Dmeyer?
CS said on 22/Feb/17
@Csimpson 6ft with all due respect if you say 6'0 is certainly tall then 5'11.75 is also tall as well because it's so close to 6'0. I understand there has to be a cutoff somewhere but if 6'0 is 100% tall without a doubt in your mind then I don't see how 5'11.75 wouldn't be considered tall. Yes if we're being very technical it's not as solid of a tall as 6'0 but it's close enough in my opinion.
Csimpson 6ft said on 21/Feb/17
@shiva182cms well you are closer to 182cm flat than 6'0 so i wouldn't claim 6'0 if i was you because youre a good 9mm under which is 182.9cm , going with 5ft 11.65 would be more accurate or simply say "im right between 5'11 and 6'0" almost 6'0 is more like 5'11.75, DMeyer could probably say hes 5'11.61 if his evening lowest on here says 5'11 3/8 /181.4cm.
Csimpson 6ft said on 21/Feb/17
In that case Rob i would say it makes sense to say that 5ft 11 is just above average, tallish would be more 181-182cm.
Csimpson 6ft said on 21/Feb/17
Im not really sure if i would say 5ft 11.75 is tall or not tbh, 6ft certainly is but ive never really heard 5ft 11.75 guys being called tall, what do you think about 5ft 11.75 Rob? tall or tallish?
shiva182cms said on 21/Feb/17
Same for me dmyer I think we both could claim 6' without being noticed it isn't much of a dishonest claim

By the way I'm still growing and hoping to reach atlest 185cms if not 184cms
shiva182cms said on 21/Feb/17
@anon, i just claim 5'11.5 or 6',before when I was 5'11.25 I used to claim 5'11 or 5'11.5

I think it doesn't matter much for men b/w 5'11.5 and 6' but for women 6' is much tall compared to 5'11 if you claim 5'11.5 they still think you're under 6'
Kaneff 6'0.25" said on 20/Feb/17
yeah 181cm-182cm are definitely borderline heights. Not quite tall but not average either. Even when I was 180cm at 16, though, I remember feeling like I was taller than most people. but it was more like a "1 inch taller than everyone in the room" kind of feeling and not like being truly tall, if you know what I mean. At 6' you have a big enough height advantage against the 5'9-5'10 guys to feel decently tall, whereas in the 5'11 range it's kind of iffy because having only 1 inch on 5'10 range guys isn't really enough to feel "tall". Also at 6' you can hold your own standing next to 6'2-6'3 guys but at 5'11 you can't IMO.

on a slightly unrelated note, for some reason I've been measuring a full 6'1" out of bed lately which is a mark I've never hit. I figure I'm close enough to 6'0.25" even if I'm 6'0.125" at bedtime. just think 6' flat is underselling myself a bit.
Csimpson 6ft said on 20/Feb/17
Rob what would you class 5ft 11 as? Above average or tallish?
Editor Rob: in the UK, under some circumstances it might seem tall, other times within average zone...
Dmeyer said on 20/Feb/17
Cs , i agree with 5 FT 11,75-6ft as start of tall , as à Friend of mine IS legit 5 FT 11,5 but wears 1,25in so looks 5'11,75 and looks tall , to me 6 FT 0,75-1in shoes on IS start of tall so à 5 FT 11,5 wearing à Nike shoes and bé near 6 FT 1 IS taller than à legit 6 FT who wearing 0,6in converse and IS barely over 6 FT 0,5in
Csimpson 6ft said on 19/Feb/17
@CS Id say 5ft 11.75 could arguably be classed as tall its certainly close but probably more on the borderline of being tall at the very end of tallish, if your'e 6ft then your'e safely in the tall range/low end of tall but of course this is just my opinion not everyone has to agree with me its just how i see it.
Blake said on 18/Feb/17
Dmeyer, since I have see you have been on celebheights for a long time. How did you come across the site?
CS said on 17/Feb/17
@Dmeyer I was just curious what you consider the start of tall for a man. Rob says he believes it's 182-183 which is basically 5'11.75 - 6'0. Some here have said it's 181-182 (5'11.5). Others note how at 180-181 (5'11) guys start looking tall. I'm just curious what you consider it to be. I know things like proportions, weight, posture, etc. can affect people's perception but I mean in general.
Dmeyer said on 16/Feb/17
Yes Shiva WE are close but I CAN bé 181,3 after à long day , @ the slave i measured 182,7cm after à long day at hospital sometimes its not acurate and 185,2cm out of bed i wish i was 6'1 morning and 6'0 evening
Dmeyer said on 16/Feb/17
Cs wath IS your question
anon said on 16/Feb/17
Shiva what do you claim in feet then to me you are 5'11.5 at the heights you describe, Problem at 5'11.5ish at your worst if you say 5'11 you might be underselling yourself a bit but no one is really going to guess you under 5'11 or 5'11.5 if you say 6'0 it a bit of a roundup.
shiva 181 cms said on 15/Feb/17
Wow I am exactly same height as dmeyer

Morning height -184cms

Evening at my lowest -181.5cms

In the afternoon -182cms
CS said on 15/Feb/17
Dmeyer I have a question for you.
Moreno said on 8/Feb/17
Rob, would a 5.25-5.5 inch eyelevel be possible for a 6'5 guy?
Editor Rob: Moreno, it could be possible, but it is in the 99.9 percentile range.
Peter 179cm said on 7/Feb/17
@ the Slav Maybe those machines measure your height to the top of your hairline and not the actual crown of your head.2cm error is explainable but anymore isn't justified...
the Slav said on 6/Feb/17
Dmeyer,
I was measured 181.5 cm at some electronic stadiometer once lol, although Im always 183-184 range for check ups. was very weird lolol
Johnson said on 6/Feb/17
Giant Jenny is a textbook 5'8. Rob 5'8.25 in my opinion
Editor Rob: here is the most recent photo Of me and Jenny, we do stalls whenever we can manage, selling cards, cushions and other stuff.

It's good to be able to do stuff like that with jenny...
Csimpson 6ft said on 30/Jan/17
Rob what happened to Big Alex's height shot pic?
Dmeyer said on 25/Jan/17
Its weird how Rob measure samedi at home than hospital or doctor , at home I AM about 181,5cm at doctor and hospital i measure anywere 182-182,5cm afternoon while at home I AM under 182cm
Editor Rob: dmeyer, when they knew I was coming to the hospital, they had a team of Doctors inspecting their stadiometer to make sure it was up to celebheights standards 😆 😅

I feel I should hire myself out and go around the country to test all the hospital/doctor stadiometers for errors 🤑
Kaneff said on 22/Jan/17
@Jason

Yeah I guess some might claim 6'0.5" at my height. If I had a morning doctor's appointment I could probably scrape 6'0.5", doctor's height being a measurement a lot of people go with. Most of the day, though, people are going to see me below 6'0.5".
Kaneff said on 22/Jan/17
Thanks Rob. I think I'll stick with claiming 6ft/183cm even though I'm more on the strong side of 6ft but maybe not quite 6'0.25. I just measured myself on a day I was on my feet all morning until lunch and I couldn't hold 6'0.25" for more than 5 hours really. My low after 14-15 hours was still a couple mm above 6ft though.
Blake said on 21/Jan/17
Rob, I have an idea that you could add the average height for tags like directors, actors, basketball players etc.
AlexItaly said on 21/Jan/17
Big Alex height shot link doesn't work.
Jason said on 21/Jan/17
@Kaneff, I would call you 6'0.5" as it's the nearest quarter fraction to the average of your highest and lowest.
Peter 179cm said on 21/Jan/17
@ Andrea Your height shrinkage seems guite average actually...I tested it out myself today and got the following readings: 1 minute out of bed i was 181.6cm and 45 minutes later i was down to 180.9cm-2 hours out of bed i remeasured again and was already down to 179.8cm which is pretty much my evening range now on most days,at worst probably 1-2mm's below at night.
Johnson said on 20/Jan/17
@Rob what figures do you get in your medical tests in the doctor? 173 cm? 173.5 cm? 174?
Editor Rob: I am 173cm in my hospital records.
Andrea said on 20/Jan/17
Rob, today I measured my out of bed (within a minute) height after a long time I didn't... Then I remeasured myself after 3.5 hours and I had already lost 1.6-1.7 cms at that point! I mean, after only 3.5 hours, I was already quite near my general low (only 2-3 mms taller)! And I certainly didn't have a particular "busy" day/morning! I generally "shrink" around 1.8-1.9 cms on a normal day and maybe 2.2-2.3 cms(at the very most) on a long and hard day! That's why I find it funny when people say they are a cm taller in the afternoon compared to the evening, especially those who are average! It of course depends on the activities but, unless you spend your morning laying down on the bed or couch, there's really no difference between afternoon and evening, if you assume that by afternoon you mean something like 5-6 hours out of bed!!! As I said, I can be pretty near my low after only 3-4 hours!!! After maybe 2 hours, it is true that you might be around 1 cm taller than your low but not much more! It is also true that every person is a different case but I'm surprised by how fast I "lose" my height at times!
Editor Rob: yes, the fall of on average is quite a big amount within the first few hours, then it is very slow. It also depends on when some people wake up, if they are rising at 9am then I can see how some measure at 1pm and can still shrink another cm.
Csimpson 6ft said on 20/Jan/17
@Kaneff claiming 6ft 0.25 is fine, youre slightly taller than me as im just a flat 6ft.
Dmeyer said on 19/Jan/17
Thanks Rob and sorry for all misstyping
Kaneff said on 18/Jan/17
Rob, would you consider me a 6'0.25" guy? I've been consistently measuring 6'0.25" 7 hours out of bed and only hit 6' flat at an extreme low. Out of bed I'm 6'0.9"
Editor Rob: Kaneff, I'd call you a legit 6 footer, even a strong one...I hope that if you see other guys clearly shorter than yourself, trying to claim they are 6ft, to put them in their place!
Dmeyer said on 17/Jan/17
I Guess Rob , i and manteau here claim low height if WE reach it à 3pm and dont lay down then WE stay this height from 3pm to 11pm , while from 6am to 3pm our height goes down , so low height IS à stable height also since périple mesure anywere 8am-6pm at doctor most are at near low
Editor Rob: definitely if I do an active morning and then on feet I can get to low near 1pm and basically it hovers around that mark for most of day...but in house if I'm just doing normal computer work and not much intensive stuff, it takes much longer to get to lowest, and some days I wouldn't hit my low!
Owen said on 15/Jan/17
Rob, just as a matter of interest why are you using yours and everyone else's lowest height of the day as their official height? Surely it'd be the midway point between the lowest and out of bed which would make more sense. In your case your body stretches to 5'8.9" and lowest being 5'8.125", surely 5'8.5" would sound much better and big you up a little. If there is a reason for this if be really intrigued to know. Also the many people on this site are the heights quoted based on the lowest measurement of the day theory?
Editor Rob: I'm 173cm, although some days I might be nearer 173.5 range, but if I'm doing a normal job on feet for hours I will get down to low quicker.
Peter 179cm said on 15/Jan/17
@ Kudo1 How about measuring the door itself and then substract 5.75 inches to find out your height? It's easier that way...
Guest said on 14/Jan/17
Rob I measure about 193 - 193.5 cm in the morning and 192 - 192.5 at night. Can I claim 6ft4?
Editor Rob: I'd go with 'almost 6ft 4'
Kudo1 said on 12/Jan/17
Bit of a random question, Rob, but how high is the average door in the UK? I measure 5.75 inches underneath the top of the door so what height would I be?
Editor Rob: door frames can typically be near 6ft 6...when you add on underlay and carpet the frame can sometimes be between 6ft 4-5.

If you are a 6ft 5 guy you are always ducking under doorways in most houses.
