Irish actress and model known for playing Claire Randall in TV series Outlander. In film she appeared in Now You See Me and Escape Plan. She described herself as 5ft 9 and 118 pounds, although her modelling height is 178cm with vital stats: 33A-23-34 and shoe size 6.5uk. I saw her at a Starfury Convention in 2017, she had roughly 2.75 heels, I had 1-inch sneakers that day.

Rob. If a girl measures at 5 ft 9.375 or 5 ft 9.4 for most of the time, how do you determine to put her at 5 ft 9.5 or 5 ft 9.25? Plus different days, might measure differently. Would you agree that sometimes it can be a little tricky knowing which quarter inch to go with?
Editor Rob: it might depend what time of day. If it was like 9.4 at 11am I might give her a 9.25 listing overall.

I was there too and I am 174-175cm and we are same high in my picture :) And actually my measurements are same as Cait’s, but she has thinner legs!! I wish I could get legs like that haha

Rob, if 5 ft 1/8 is your lowest, I don't think saying you are 5 ft 8.25 is wrong. It's just that you wake up really early and choose to go with your lowest height. But when I see you next to someone who is also 5 ft 8, you seem to edge them out by a little.
Editor Rob: at mid-day I certainly might measure 5ft 8.25, but my low is really 5ft 8 1/8th.
I will claim 173cm as that is quite accurate, just over 5ft 8.

Editor Rob: her best measurement on the stadiometer was 5ft 9 1/8th, she had a greater shrinkage of between 3/4 to 1 inch, so our evening heights were very similar.

Nowadays she drops to a low of 5ft 7.5, whilst I still hold 5ft 8 1/8th at lowest. I am younger though and didn't spend 4 years crafting over a table which wasn't great for the back or neck!

What's Jenny's morning height these days?
Editor Rob: not measured it for ages, but last time she still managed to get over the 5ft 8.5 mark.

You look the same height as her, are you absolutely certain she's 5'9, or that you're not 5'9?
Editor Rob: considering Jenny's 5ft 7.5 range, Cat was certainly taller than her by a few inches.

Has Jenny lost height? I thought she measured over 5'9" in the morning and was taller than you Rob?

She's over 5'9" and downgrades to 5'9". People on here just want to lower everyone's height.

Rob do you have any pictures of a girl like Caitrona with a small head looking taller standing next to someone, but shorter when you look at the top of the head?
Editor Rob: off top of head I don't
Intevel said on 26/Oct/17
Rob does taking off only one heel still make you a fraction taller?
Editor Rob: well your hips will adjust and probably your knee might bend (depending on height of heel)...you should get a bit more height, but I haven't tested it.

I'm not comfortable wearing women's heels πŸ˜‘ Though I may measure Jenny and report back how much effect 1 heel on and 1 off had on her...😊
Intevel said on 18/Oct/17
Rob, was she slouching? She doesn't seem much taller in this pic.
Editor Rob: I think she must have dropped at least a half inch more than me because she looked taller I felt, although one thing is her proportions can make her seem even taller in person. I think with a long neck, skinny body and tiny head, she will fool people into thinking she is 5ft 10-11!

You can see also beside Dominic West how comparatively small it is...
Slim said on 1/Oct/17
Ah. So the troll returns . she's somewhere in the 5'9" range.

To achieve full morning height how many hours of sleep would you say you need, Rob? Maybe 8-12?
Editor Rob: from my own test in the past I feel 9 hours gets me the maximum...going beyond that didn't seem to do anything. 7 hours might not get you a full morning, but around 8-9 I feel.

Cat out of bed may well measure near to 5ft 10, she is very slim in person so I can also see her being guessed taller. From a distance she did seem taller than when I was standing beside her!
Andrea said on 29/Sep/17
Maybe because she doesn't look much different than Rob with almost 2 inches more footwear than him, Slim?
Slim said on 29/Sep/17
175-176(5'9"-5'9.5") not sure why users are guessing lower.

176cm. Very pretty girl.

lol you look so cool with that beard

Pretty girl. a touch of the Hendricks about her.

This picture is pretty inconclusive as to Caitriona's height! It is a jolly nice pic though!
Andrea said on 24/Sep/17
She doesn't look much different than you, Rob, but I guess that you have a big camera advantage here. You seem to be standing a bit closer to the camera and the photographer is also probably standing more on your side. So the picture itself is quite useless... BUT she must have looked near 5'11 (without considering the footwear difference), right? 😊
Editor Rob:
With an extra cm of beard I now have a head size in 99.9th percentile πŸ˜† Yeah I think I got 1 inch in front of Cat there (which makes a change, 80% of photos on here I'm 1-2 inches behind), she did seem over 5ft 10. Surprisingly with heels, Graham mcTavish still had 3 inches or so on her, and he was still about 187 I felt that day.

with an extra cm at chin, my head length will make Jenny's look small (hers is very average, like 50th percentile for females): Click Here.

Is she really just 118 pounds? It seems like she is really skinny, but that's a really low weight.
Editor Rob: I could believe 120-5 pounds in 5ft 9 range.

Caitriona Balfe's Height
5ft 9in (175.3 cm)

She is beautiful and good actress.
Marquis said on 24/Sep/17
Wait a sec, Rob, what is going on in that photo?? You look the same height as Balfe in the photo, and also say she had a 1.75" footwear advantage.

By that measure, Balfe is only 5' 6.25"!!! Maybe 5'7", if we account for the fact that you're closer to the camera than her.

That can't be right. Was she leaning way back, bending her knees, dropping height, what?
Slim said on 24/Sep/17
1.25 inches on rob tbh. 176 range would suit her better. Nice find.
Marquis said on 23/Sep/17
Looks *at least* 5'9", maybe 5'9.5".
Emma said on 28/Jun/17
She looks just a couple of cm taller than Julia Roberts at the money mister events with same height shoes. So she's either smaller or Julia is taller...

Sounds right. And she was excellent in Money Monster.
