Definitively 183 at his lowest, 2cm shorter than 185 ronaldo, 2cm doesn't look noticeable for people who don't obsess over height.

Not sure I'd say he easily clears 186 out of bed,but could hit 186 on the button straight out. Could be a 6ft 3/8th guy like Benzema.

Bale 1.86

Ronaldo 185.4cm said on 21/Dec/20
I think Bale is 183cm flat or just about 6 feet at his very low point. And there could be a possibility of Bale being 184cm, because if the 1.83m listing could have had hung around for a while and stayed as 1.83m, he could be 184cm. But I personally think it's not that case. He doesnt look much above 184cm next to players like Cristiano and Benzema. I don't even know why the average guesses have suddenly increased by 4mm from what it was before. I think its because of the certain gang claiming Bale as being 6'2 range. + Bale isn't even as well proportioned as Cristiano is.

@123 Well, you're asking how, the answer is, the measurements. They don't lie, that's how he is actually under 184cm. How can he be more than he actually measures. Obviously shorter than 6'1 Ronaldo.

@My height 1.83 cm How is Bale taller than Ronaldo if Ronaldo measures taller than Bale? And anyway Bale was listed as 1.83m and Ronaldo never listed under 185cm after his mid 20's. Bale was 24 at the time when he was listed as 1.83cm so no way he grew after that. Ronaldo is taller than Bale. If Bale is 6'2-3 then imma just say Ronaldo is 6'3-4 lol.

184 is considerable for bale
Rory said on 19/Oct/20
I think Souness said similar about Zidane before too. Described him as 6ft4. Another commentator once described Lewandowski as 6ft4 too lol. I can see why people would guess Bale as being taller than 184 though as his athletic build, broad shoulders etc give the impression of a big guy all round. 6ft2 guesses I could understand but 6ft4 is lunacy.

6ft0.5 I think is possible for Bale though, I wouldn't go any less than 6ft0.25.
Mark Allan said on 18/Oct/20
Graeme Souness thought Bale was 6’3 or 6’4 Rob talk about exaggeration Bale is at most 6’0.5 would you agree Rob?
Editor Rob
yeah, Graeme is known for a bit of exaggeration. After all, he was a guy who would make a shocking tackle like this then pretend to the ref he got hurted.

Graham Souness just said on Bale, “What is he? 6’3? 6’4?” to which Dave Jones replied “6’1”

Bale is definitely a flat 6'1 guy (185.42cm) out of bed or a fraction over, 185.5cm), normally i think he is around 1.9cm shorter than ronaldo, he is like 183.6cm.

Matt Evans said on 24/Jun/20
Always looks above 6ft, I’d go for 184-186 range & don’t think 6’1 is an unreasonable height to be listed at for him. similarly to Ronaldo I don’t see a full 6’2(188cm), think even 187cm is a stretch for both men.

@metin reis you cannot shrink 4cm. Also you cant shrink 2cm betweeen afternoon and night, maybe couple of millimetres more or then just nothing, it depends but not 2cm. 2cm is morning height-)afternoon/night height. About 2,2cm you lose during the day. He is 185.2-3cm in the morning i guess.
Progking said on 22/Mar/20
@RampageClover thats true i wake up at 185.5 cm and go down to 183-183.5 cm, 184 cm depending on the day. Id call that range a strong 6 footer, he can get away with 6'1 a lot
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/20
187.5cm straight out down to 183.5cm before bed is unrealistic. You’d only see that level of fluctuation in a 7fter

Bale probably hits 6ft1 on the nose first thing (arguable a touch over) and closes the day at the current listing.

A guy who gets 187.5cm out of bed shouldn’t dip under 6ft1 in the eveining

He looks it at many times or even taller. He has perfect tall man proportions, but I don't believe somehow he's the full 6' . He's clearly 3 cm shorter than ronaldo. I could see him at 5'11 3/4 ie 1.82 m. Maybe 183 - 183.5 is his morning height.
Animus said on 20/Mar/18
He weighs 82kg? I suppose it's possible with his thick legs. Overall he looks lighter than Cristiano.

@Ronald9 "in some photos with ramos they look almost the same height" In fact, Bale looks clearly shorter than Ramos in some pics, so I'm not convinced he is 1.84.

Click Here

Rob, do you think that there is a floor advantage for Benzema and Ramos in this pic?
Editor Rob
Always a chance of a slight tilt (looking at background it would be a little tilt in Marcelo's favour), but the ground is unknown. Seems flat enough.
Ronald9 said on 25/Feb/18
Bales height is strange. He can look 6'1 at times but then in some photos with ramos they look almost the same height. Maybe its his proportions because his body in general looks pretty long and big. Heres a pic of him with Ronaldo and Benzema in their most recent game. I'd say Bale 184 cm Benzema 183 and Ronaldo 185.5-186

@James the real one

Hey san!I'm fine and I hope you are too.
I really appreciate your photo argumentation, in particular I agree with you about the height difference between Ronaldo and Ramos... almost 4cm seems spot on to me.

Click Here

Look at this photo - similar to one of the previous posted by you -.
Here Bale seems to be round 1cm taller than Bale. I continue to think Bale edges out Benzema by 0,5-1cm (from all photos I have seen on the net).
IMO Bale is exactly 2cm shorter than Ronaldo and 1,5cm taller than Ramos.
James the real one said on 22/Feb/18
@Appe 183cm How are you my friend? I do think that Benzema is taller than Bale, not vice versa. Check it out these pics:

Ramos looks 4 cm shorter than Cristiano, to be honest:

Bale has hair advantage. If you look closely at the eyebrow level (not the hairline level), you wil notice Benzema looks 1 cm taller than Bale:

This is only MY opinion but I think Bale is 1.83, Benzema 1.84, Cristiano 1.86 and Ramos 1.82. I think Rob was spot on, Benzema is indeed taller than Bale.

Agree ~15cm difference, I would say 184 for Bale and 199 for Carmelo.

Add him to the "Soccer players" category.
And I guess he's exactly 183cm or 6ft.

6'0 tall, not 6'1 as I seen many pics of him and Ronaldo (who's a legit 6'1) and Bale is edged out by an inch. So I give him solid legit 6'0 nothing under it though maybe at most half an inch over on a good day.

Bale edges out Ramsey. That's easy to spot. Next to CR7 he can look sub 6' but Cristiano never slouches.
jjj said on 6/Sep/17
Strange how on Fifa Bale is listed as 183cm and Ramsey is 177cm, but this photo proves they're actually the same height!

What do you think, Rob?

He could be measure 6'0.5" few hours out of bed. Solid 6'0 before bed.
James said on 14/Aug/17
@Johnson I agree with you.
Johnson said on 12/Aug/17
@James Rob did it perfectlty. People not used to feet and inches see 5'11 and 5'10.75 and don't pay attention to feet inches just read 180

With the new format. Now we all know that 5'11 is solid 180 and 5'10.75 a weak 180 (179.7 or so)

It is just a way to control weak and strong in cms
Richard said on 12/Aug/17
Bale is obviously a 6fter. He'd get guessed 6ft 1 by a fair amount of people. Legit 184 range imo
James said on 11/Aug/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8 You said on a previous comment that "whenever you list a celeb as "6ft 0.25in (184 cm)" or "6ft 3in (191 cm)", some people believe that they're a legit 184 or 191, which is erroneous because they actually equate to 183.5 and 190.5 respectively." Why is 6' 0.25" (183.5) not a legit 1.84? Is then 6 ft 0 (182.8) not a legit 1.83? In European countries most people do not claim its own height in decimals. So 182.8 is rounded up to 1.83 not rounded down to 1.82. It's also logical, from a mathematical point of view. In mathematics, it's wrong to round down numbers when the decimal is 5 or bigger. So it's erroneous to round down 182.8, instead of rounding up to 1.83. The same goes with 183.5, that should be roundep up to 1.84. On the other hand, 6 ft 1 (185.4) should be rounded down to 1.85. In conclusion, 183.5 is a legit 1.84, because in mathemathics you can't round down a decimal which is 5 or more, and most people don't claim its height in decimals.

"Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down)
But increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up)"

My mistake, 6'0.5" is actually 184.15, it's actually a 0.6-0.7cm difference from 6'0.25"
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Aug/17
I totally agree with Christian , rob you've got half intervals for feet and inches, why not add half intervals for metres and centre meters, please do this as we're not all American. And I myself could be a perfect example of the confusion. as I measure 184 out of bed and i downgraded myself a quarter inch which is ironic cause most users that miscalculate their height actually inflate themselves a quarter inch.
Editor Rob: I included it for the voting, but was 50/50 whether to put 1 decimal place in the metric part at the top.

Maybe I should do it, as it then matches up with giving 1 decimal place like the voting.
Canson said on 5/Aug/17
Tough time getting a read on this one
James said on 4/Aug/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8 Just by looking at pictures, nobody knonws if Bale is exactly 183.5, 183.6 or 183.7. There is no way to be so precise. In the metric system people are usually not listed or measured in decimals, to be so precise is generally not practice. Nobody claims to be 183.5 or 183.6.

No single football player or tennis player has its height officially listed in decimals. They are rounded. Anyhow, Bale is listed here as 6' 0.25" (1.84). That's correct, since 6' 0.25" is 183.5, and 183.5 should be rounded up to 1.84 not rounded down to 1.83.

This is how to round a number:

"Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down)
But increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up)"

Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 3/Aug/17

I get that. I'm just saying, some people who aren't familiar with ft/in measurements will believe that a 6'0.25" and a 6'0.5" listed celeb here is the same height because both have "184 cm" listed beside, when they're 0.5cm apart.
James said on 2/Aug/17
I wanted to say "physician" instead of the non-existent word "medician" haha. Sorry, English is not my native language.
James said on 2/Aug/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8 Nobody is measured including the decimals. Medicals measure patients and they don't say "you are 183.6" or "you are 183.8". They also don't claim "you are 184.2" or "you're 183.5". At least that's what my mother says, she works as a medician as she rounds up. For example, if a patient is 173.6 cm, she just rounds it up to 1.74. She says that's how they teached her to do it, and everybody in the hospital do the same.

I live in a European country with the stabilished imperial measurement, and nobody claim their height in decimals. So if Bale is 183.6 or 1.83.7 it doesn't matter, he is correctly rounded up to 1.84 by Rob.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 2/Aug/17
Rob, should you start adding decimals next to centimeters for listings like 6'0.25" and 6'3"? I think it's a good idea because whenever you list a celeb as "6ft 0.25in (184 cm)" or "6ft 3in (191 cm)", some people believe that they're a legit 184 or 191, which is erroneous because they actually equate to 183.5 and 190.5 respectively. Also, some of the visitors will also think that a 6'0.25" and a 6'0.5" celeb, or 6'3" and 6'3.25" celeb are the exactly the same height, since some of them don't pay attention to the ft/in listing and just read the cm listing since they're not familiar with the imperial measurements.

Ronaldo and Bale are actually 2 cm apart. Correct listing.

In the last period I've started thinking he could be closer to 183cm than to 184cm.

Strong 6'0, one inch shorter than cristiano ronaldo.
Appe 183.3cm said on 23/Jun/17

I agreee with your morning (just out of bed) estimation but I think his lowest could be between 183cm and 183,5cm since he probably shrinks around an inch on a normal day.
Ronaldo said on 21/Jun/17
morning: 185.4 cm
afternoon: 184.5 cm
night: 183.8 cm

rob, how tall you reckon sam warburton is next to gareth?
James said on 23/Mar/17
@Rory Yes I can. If the picture is reliable why not? I admit there is a chance that the floor is not on the same level on my two pics. But I haven't seen enough yet to see Bale looking "strong" six footer. Always looks 2'5 cm shorter than Cristiano and there is still not enough evidence he is taller than Benzema or even Ramos. The advantage of these 2 pics is that you can see their feet and Bale doesn't look taller than Ramos.
Johnson said on 23/Mar/17
@Rory good point!!
Rory said on 22/Mar/17
You can't use one picture alone to justify a downgrade. Bale to me most typically looks a strong 6footer.
James said on 17/Mar/17

Bale doesn't look over 6 ft compared with 6 ft listed Sergio Ramos. Time for a downgrade.

I personally think pictures are more relevant than the general poll. Why? Because people can be confused. These pics show Bale is not taller than Ramos, you can even see their feet.

Tommy174 said on 25/Aug/16
Bale is 184cm, Ronaldo is 185cm, Benzema is 182cm

Benzema is 188cm in the morning , drops to 186.5 cm. He is taller than Ronaldo.

Take a look at pictures of Ronaldo not on his tippy toes.
HonestSlovene said on 24/Feb/17
This guy is 100% 186 cm morning and 184 cm evening. Ronaldo looks barely taller than him, maybe 1-2 cm.

You should upgrade ronaldo to 186 cm.
What do you think, Rob?

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover Probably they are both a bit shy of these marks in the morning IMO.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/17
Ronaldo is probably closing in on 6ft2 out of bed and Bale easily a full 6ft1.

@ok you measured him... funny comment!! Good try
ok said on 28/Jan/17
I measured him he is 180.34 was bit night time though.. ESPN him on that... Most legit 6 foot Hollywood or modeling though
Cristiano said on 13/Jan/17
legit 6' imo
trumpslave said on 12/Jan/17
Rob i believe the difference between bale and cristiano is 2 or 3 cms it's obvious. So the only way to fix this is downgrading bale to 6ft flat or upgrading cristiano to 6ft1.25 what do you think?
Rory said on 12/Jan/17
Yh I used to think the difference between Bale and Ronaldo was negligible, like half an inch at most, but I'm now of the view that there could be near an inch between them. I still think though Ronaldo at a solid 6ft 1 and Bale at a strong 6 foot makes sense. A strong 6fter would measure more than 184 range out of bed so I think Bale at 185.5 out of bed is fair. Ronaldo is probably 187.5 out of bed.
James said on 11/Jan/17

(Not the Eurocup pictures haha)

IMO Bale is listed and looks 2.5 cm (an inch) shorter than Cristiano. 185.5?

I will go with with Johnson 184.5 in the morning sounds more believable for me.
James said on 11/Jan/17
@Johnson Yeah, you probably look 1.77 don't worry. My mother works as a pediatric physician and she has to measure teenagers at work. She measures these guys and girls in the morning (her worktime). When I was in high school, Physical Education teachers always measured me in the morning. I have the impression that most people is measured in the morning and do claim their height in shoes (height liars) or at least the morning barefoot height. If I claim my evening height people never believe me, so I always claim my morning height. Of course If I were to claim my height in shoes people wouldn't believe me and I would feel like a liar.
Rory said on 8/Jan/17
Bale would be 185.5 cms out of bed Imo. Can't see him waking up below 185 tbh.
Johnson said on 7/Jan/17
I claim 176 but I am obsessed because I think I appear 177 around people...and that being measured 2 times at the equivalent of 5'9 on the dot in medicals. I also gain 1 cm extra gut busting. I hold my height well I don't dwarf with people
James said on 7/Jan/17
@Johnson Interesting opinion!

Can I ask you a personal question? What height do you claim to be when people ask you?
Johnson said on 6/Jan/17
@James Out of bed 184.2 for Bale sounds very little. I am out of bed 177.5. After breakfast 176.5 teatime 175.5 before bed 175.5. I think Rob agree early morning he can be 184.5
James said on 5/Jan/17

Out of bed 184.2

Teatime (around 6 pm) still around 182.7 or 182.8 (6 ft)

At his absolute lowest (10:30 pm) 182.5

Most time of the day he is comfortably in the 1.83 range.
Canson said on 4/Jan/17
185 out of bed
183 at his lowest

@HonestSlovene HAHAHAHA good joke. Bale is 6' 1.5" in heels maybe.

Duuuuuude it's so weird if you face swap this guy and mine i would 100% believe that his stance is identical to me holy bagoogle lol
Hijopotamus said on 1/Jan/17
Could be anything around 183.
HonestSlovene said on 31/Dec/16
Bale is a solid 6'0.5" or 184 cm, pushing 6'1" (184.5cm). One of the few listings here which are actually less than his actual measurement barefoot would be. Around 6'1.5" in football shoes easily.
Johnson said on 27/Dec/16
I have seen lots of pics of James Rodriguez he is 179.5 cm. Chicharito 175 cm, Isco 175.5 cm and Falcao 177 cm

Bale could be 1.83. The problem here is that we compare him with overlisted players like Ramos and Alonso.

If you google Gareth Bale and Harry Kane there looks a 1.25 inch difference between, but possibly Kane is losing a bit posture wise. Still, I'd have said Kane roughly 6ft 2, Bale 6'0.5.
Rory said on 12/Dec/16
I think 6'0.25 would be his low Mark. I could see him measuring 6'0.5 before lunch.

Bale always looks at least 184 cm, even sometimes he can look a weak 185 cm.

184 cm seems to be a good listing.

He is clearly 6'0.. But if Bale is 184 cm, then Both Ramsey and Kyle Walker looks 182 cm (weak 6'0) next to Bale. Both are listed as 5'10 but they look close to 6'0

He has ALWAYS looked taller than 183cm, 184cm is the lowest i'd go for Bale.

And Ronaldo is slightly taller then Bale, in the pic you can see it as well.

Real Madrid and Barcelona tend to be more accurate with their heights. The premier league inflate the crap out of them. Some guys who don't even reach 6ft are down at 6ft2

We can say bale looks taller than Ronaldo and other players sometimes because he is muscular and he has big shoulders he has a very muscular physique

The tallest 6'0 I have seen. I also thought nearer 6'1, but strong 6'0 is ok I guess.

With 6'2 Chris Coleman he looks exactly this, but i agree he's a guy who you'd think taller at times.
Z187 said on 25/Jun/16
I watched Wales today, during the anthem he was next to Ledley, with an even frontal camera angle, he was the exact same height as Joe Ledley (1,83m) . He might get to 184cm earlier in the day, but he's probably something like 183.5 most of the time. In an age of inflated heights in the majority of people, I'm sure madrid wouldn't list him as shorter.
