Of course these are the ranges and I didn't put the exact mm.

@Canson I’ve witnessed it many times or they will be just over 6’0 and claim 6’2 I really question where they are getting these claims from sometimes.
Luca said on 19/Mar/20
Rob, is it correct to say that, except extreme haircut like afro or stuff like that, if you have a quite thin hair,even if quite long, and if you use the aerosol can method, pressing them accurately down, in the height measuring the presence of hair is negligible? So In those conditions your actual height and your bald height is basically the same?
Editor Rob
Yes, it's going to be not even half a mm using a smaller surface area like a can.
cmillz said on 18/Mar/20
c-mo was being sarcastic, but an inch can make more of a difference than you might think. Obviously not the difference between short and tallish though.
Poster said on 18/Mar/20
@Bobby: I'm sure that c-mo was joking. His point might have been that it's weird to cut off height categories like that. I think that he was agreeing with you in a humorous way. I may or may not be wrong, but that's my take on it.

@Bobby 1.78 6'1.5 i feel is the ideal tall height. I am 6'0/183 cm at night, 6'1 morning, but during the day i do reach 6'1.5 range in shoes, so i think i did good enough. However I always thought that 6'1.5 barefoot or 6'2 is the best height to be tall but not too tall to standout a lot. I would say 5'11-6'3 is a solid range(5'11 is underrated!)

@pov

I strongly doubt that, Black Americans are also of West African descent (with significant NW European admixture) and at 177cm the young guys average about 1cm shorter than young White Americans.

@Jdubbz
I guess everyone has different preferences when it comes to height, whether it's their own height or a partner's. I have a 6'0" cousin whose ideal is to be at least my height, if not, taller. I asked him why, and he said that he likes the feeling of standing out and towering over nearly everyone.

@c-mo
How can 5'9" be short, yet 5'10" be only "tallish"?

@Bobby
You have pretty long legs for your height, so maybe that's why your legs feel cramped in an airplane seat. My dad's around an inch taller than you, but he has little trouble when it comes to airplane seats, but then again, his legs are average. For me, it's bad, so much so that sometimes I even have to fly economy plus/premium class, which is basically economy, but with added legroom.

Bobby 1.78m (5'10) said on 17/Mar/20
@c-mo

Mate, that makes no sense whatsoever. How can one inch make such a difference in your self-perception of height? Being 5'10 isn't that much taller than being 5'9, it won't stick out too much and most people may not even be able to spot that inch difference either. Now, if you compared 5'8 to 5'10, then that'd be a good bit of difference.
Bobby 1.78m (5'10) said on 17/Mar/20
@Jdubbz

For me, I would be satisfied with a minimum of 6'0 or a maximum of 6'3. So, something like 6'2 would be good enough. I don't like to stand out myself, but being comfortably taller than above average height men (5'10-5'11) would be nice. I'd say you gotta be a minimum of 6'2 to be one of the tallest guys in any sort of social situation but you won't stand out so much that people are going to be asking you about your height. You may get the occasional few looks or be referred to as "that tall guy" but it won't be like if you were 6'4 or even 6'5 where people will notice you far more often. Even a 6'0 guy won't get too many looks because he doesn't stick out but if you measure him against an average height guy (5'9) you'll realize how tall he actually is. So, if I had a genie in the lamp scenario like Aladdin, I would wish to grow about 4 inches and then plateau at 6'2 and I would be satisfied with that height, but no more than 6'3.25 personally. Even at 5'10 range myself, there are times in airplanes where I can feel cramped if the person in front of me reclines their chair all the way back and then I have no legroom. So, I can't imagine the kind of discomfort I'd have if I were substantially above 6'3.

@Comment95

The CDC's anthropometric data was collected based on mostly barefoot measurements rounded to the nearest 0.1cm with a stadiometer. The few participants who refused to remove footwear had their heel height measured and subtracted from their measured height. Here's the full methodology guideline: Click Here

The data is collected by medical professionals in a mobile examination center, they essentially travel around the country taking measurements of people in order to create a nationally representative sample. Although there is no indication of what time these measurements are taken, it's likely anywhere from late morning to late afternoon which is the time range that most people go to the doctor's office. Even accounting for morning measurements, a large part of your morning height is gone within a few minutes anyway.

@c-mo176.2cm

How on Earth does one inch make the difference between short and tallish???
pov said on 17/Mar/20
I'd say the average young black male is a strong 5'11 in the UK. (181-182cm) You see this especially in especially 2nd and 3rd generation African immigrants (Nigerian, Gambian, Ghanaian) are much taller than their parents due to better nutrition and fulfilling their genetic potential. We are now seeing Young blacks being taller than young whites in the same conditions.
Canson said on 17/Mar/20
@Christian and Jdubbz: I agree with Christian about standing out. I wouldn’t want to either. I do at 6’4 but not as bad as I would at 6’6 or more
Canson said on 17/Mar/20
Greg said on 15/Mar/20
@Canson Well any guy who is between 5’10-5’11 probably gets inflated to 6’0 or close about. A legit 5’11 or like an almost 6’0 guy can probably get that, I just see a lot of 5’11.5ish guys claim 6’1, don’t remember the last time I heard a guy claim 6’1 and actually be it or close to the mark maybe I just know a lot of inflators.

Sounds about right. A lot of guys in that range claim 6’1”
Jdubbz said on 17/Mar/20
@Christian: I definitely don't disagree that there are more drawbacks to being 6'5-6'6 than 6'2-6'3. I mentioned in my comment that my quality of life hasn't really changed, but obviously there are still some differences between heights in that large range. For me, those differences are: inseam went from 34 to 37", small sedans became a bit more cramped, and airplanes suck even more. Idk man. It's not that hard to find 36-38" pants online, and I fly maybe once every other year. The only real downside for me is lack of legroom in smaller sedans, and its really not that big of a deal imo. I guess some folks around our size struggle with doorframes, but mine are 205cm, so even in the morning + thick shoes, I still have an inch or so of clearance. Not a problem. To me, an extra 3" of height a little bit more comfort in a few aspects of daily life.


Funny enough, the reason that you like 6'2.5 is exactly why it's not my ideal height. For me, it would kinda suck to be almost very tall but not really there yet. I remember back when I was 6'3, I kept hoping for more growth. I never feel that way these days lol. I'm sure 6'2.5 is a better height than 6'5.5 for the average joe, but definitely not for me. I'm very happy with it, and I honestly wouldn't mind being any height up to 200cm.

Greg said on 15/Mar/20
@Bwk I’ve just heard both 6’0.5 and 6’1, a half inch is meaningless either way. There’s people saying they average 6’0 and 6’1, both of which are not the actual average I will say.

@Progking Yeah idk too many guys who are 5’10/5’11 out of like people that I personally know I mean I’m trying to think right now I can only think of like 3 or 4 guys who are in the 5’11, range and maybe 2 or 3 who are at least 5’10 range. Not that it’s a rare height but amongst my friend group they are either taller or shorter.
Greg said on 15/Mar/20
@Mrfunnyguy, I don’t need to scroll I remember that photo exactly and it didn’t prove anything, make a measurement video that’s legit and official and maybe then we will believe you. That’s the worst photo for showing height.
Greg said on 15/Mar/20
@Trigueros 5’9.5, Yeah exactly I agree with you most guys that think 5’9 is short are actually thinking of 5’7.5 or something and even then that’s just a bit below average not nearly enough to be short range which I think starts at 5’6 for Men. As for your height of almost 5’10, I’m guessing you’re 5’9.5 evening right? So you wake up at 5’10.25, you would be just about average in most places if not slightly above it like a fraction. I’ve personally never heard a 5’9 guy get called short in person, but I’ve had a few 5’8 range friends say they felt short In like a U.S Bar setting, although there weren’t that many taller people present. Tall people are not really that common; but not uncommon if that makes sense lol. Idk what Khaleds issue is, and we are all obsessed with height to an extent hence us being active on this forum.

@Jdubbz
I don't have the type of anxiety you mentioned, but I personally don't really care for standing out in crowds. That's one of the reasons why my ideal is 6'2.5", because while it's tall, it's not quite a stand out height. I know you might disagree, but I feel that there are more drawbacks to being in the 6'5"-6'6" range, than being 6'2"-6'3". The ego of towering over people isn't enough to trump the negatives of finding clothes and fitting in car/airplane seats, for me.

@Christian:

I'd apply everything he said about 6'4-6'4.5 to our height as well.
Jdubbz said on 14/Mar/20
@Bobby:

You may not gain many benefits from being 6'5+ over 6'4, but there aren't any major drawbacks either. Yes it may be marginally tougher to find clothing, fit in vehicles, etc. but you're already getting all those problems at any height above 6'2. I've been 6'2+ for 5 years now, and the only difference in that range is that I need to buy pants online now, whereas I could fit in 34" inseam when i was 6'2. As far as standing out goes, that's different for everyone. I hated standing out when I was 18 and about 6'3, since I had a pretty bad case of social anxiety. Now I love it. Obviously I stand out even more than I did at 6'3, but if anything it's more enjoyable now. It feels good to be the biggest guy around in most places. It might sound unappealing to a guy who hasn't experienced it, but standing out absolutely isn't a bad thing imo.
Trigueros-5ft9.5 said on 14/Mar/20
@c-mo,@Greg-
Generally , people who see 5'9" guys as short are basically ignorant of height statics.
5'9" is a very average height , I am not much taller (only half an inch taller) and I've rarely felt "short", yes sometimes I do feel short but I know I am around really tall people.
you can't generalize what khaled taban has said over millions of 5'9" guys in the United States and even in the whole world.
After all , He was obsessed with height , he admitted it himself. In fact , he isn't short , he just wants to be tall . If you are 5'9", why would you date a 5'10" girl and then feel bad about it? that's what I haven't understood yet !
Progking said on 14/Mar/20
@Greg i was 5'11 range at 16 and certainly felt tallish, i was surprised that i was one of the tallest in my classes in grade 10 and 11. It is probably the most underrated height. I kind of thought i would grow to 6'1-6'2 but 6'0-6'0.25 evening isnt bad either
Luca said on 14/Mar/20
Rob, I noticed that my out of bed height can vary a lot. After a range of 8-11 hours out of bed my height can vary from a minimum of 190.2 cm (8 hrs) to a maximum of about 190.9 cm (10 or 11 hours).
Apart from a few hours more of sleep, how is it explainable such a big difference? Sleeping posture, hydration level etc or what? If so, what is the optimal sleeping posture to get the maximum out of bed height?
Editor Rob
That's a decent variation, I've never got anywhere like that variation, but then my spine isn't as long, nor as young as yours!
Canson said on 14/Mar/20
@John124: I agree with Christian. I probably would’ve said 6’4-6’5, 6’5-6’6, or 6’4-6’6 range. As for 6’6 and 6’7 I agree I would have to take 6’6” over 6’7” but I don’t see any benefit at either height. I think the benefits begin to diminish around Christian’s or Jdubbz’s height 6’5-6’6 range. And I say that because I’m in the 6’4-6’4.5 range and I don’t find it bad but it can become inconvenient when shopping for clothes at times and airplanes can be a challenge on occasion.

@Greg: imho that devalues 5’11 agreed. a legit 5’11” (someone who measures a flat 5’11 or 5’10 7/8-5’11 1/8” in the afternoon) often gets guessed at 6’0” so once You’re into a strong 5’11 range 5’11.2-.5 you’re as good as 6’1” lol
Sakz said on 14/Mar/20
@cmillz I think that's more from a personal standpoint. Even for me personally it would be too tall simply because it brings additional negatives without any real positives, but from an overall perspective it's 'very tall' yet perfectly manageable.

@cristi mate, you're a big dude too! My out of bed height is about 0,5 cm over yours, while my evening low height is a couple of mms over yours! If I Don t ask you too much, could you post your pics with those two players, if you got them? Even with your censored face, and just the tip of your head visible should be perfect. I would really appreciate if you did it, cause I am a huge Cristiano fan and I Don t dislike bonucci too, and I would be curious to meet them and also compare their height too mine. However since I live in South italy I will hardly ever meet them, so it would be nice to see them next to someone basically my height.
In addition to That,so are you Italian too? Have you ever met any other Italian vips? (don t worry, I won't ask other pictures about them ahah)
Greg said on 13/Mar/20
@Sean 5’11 is a great height, it’s only meh because of those 5’8-5’9 range guys claiming it that most people think it’s short. Same with most heights on average I bet people wouldn’t be able to tell legit from not legit. By the way how much did you get your 720s for? And how are they I’ve been wanting to grab a pair and never got around. I think you’re paying attention to the taller people. A 5’11 guy is tallish and above average about 70th range percentile. 6’0 women are rare though, I saw a 6’2.5-6’3 guy last night but he had boots on so wasn’t sure how much they added he could have been about 6’4ish with them on. I think there’s also a girl in my class who seems close to my height like 5’10/5’11 but that’s very tall for a girl you can walk around for months and not see a woman that tall.
Greg said on 13/Mar/20
@Sean William Winter 5’10 isn’t average or a boring height, in most places it is above the average. Now if by “boring” you mean you want to stand out then you would have to be a minimum of 6’4 or taller, probably 6’7 if you want to get glares from folks and have your height asked every minute of the hour. There’s no such thing as an exciting height, sure 6’1-6’2 might be ideal but who’s to say you wouldn’t be bored at that height? Theoretically speaking you have to look at it from both ways, I think Mr.Funnyguy is likely not what he claims, also remember “French guy” they type similarly and also express similar concerns I am beginning to detect a pattern here regarding on how he posts. There’s no way obviously 6’0 or 6’1 is below average. He is trolling to get attention, it’s sad really.

@Rob I don't know in the last 3,4 days I constantly measure 189 cm range out of bed and 187 cm range before bed with the stadiometer, last month my range was 188.5 and 186.5. Last year I measured 187.5 out of bed and 185.5 at a low. Is possible I gained the last cms even if I just turned 25? I had a constant and slow growth through the years. What is your opinion?

@Jdubbz It was an over exaggeration and I feel like that person was extremely bias towards really tall heights. I just personally would not want to stand out like a 6’5-6’6 guy, I think at the absolute most I could handle being 6’3 with the right build, just wouldn’t want to be lanky as it’s a pain being stick and bones. I suppose if someone made me 6’5 it wouldn’t be the end of the world just hard to get used too. I wouldn’t even mind people asking me my height it’s just when I’m walking in a crowd I kind of would want to blend in. 6’1-6’2 kind of let’s you be tall without sticking out too much in most places. My height is ok I think the 5’10-5’11 range is nothing too special but it’s decent with the right proportions. Yeah everyone’s different though.
Greg said on 12/Mar/20
@Mark O’Connor “Seemed” and what the average actually “is” are two totally different things. I know according to Wikipedia they say it’s “6’0.5” or 184cm but I personally think it would be closer to 6’0, like maybe 5’11.5-5’11.75ish give or take. Usually averages are a little bit off from what people say they are. I know they are quite tall over there but the average also gets brought down by immigrants. Plus a 6’0 average doesn’t sound plausible. I would wager more towards 5’11.5 than 6’1.
Sean william Winter said on 12/Mar/20
5'11 is a meh hieght. i over 5'10 but with nike 720s i am pretty much 6ft even and i do not feel tal. maybe slight above average. today i saw a guy 6'2 6'3 he looked pretty big. saw a women who was easily 6ft. one guy at tesco who was 6'1 at least. everyone is big.

@Luca

It depends how much I sleep per night. The maximum height was 190.3, but that happened when I slept like a horse, like 14 hours in a day. If I sleep like 8h/night I wake up at 189,5-190, it really depends.
In afternoon I am usually 188.8-189cm barefoot and I drop to 188,1 in late evening.

I've met Cristiano Ronaldo, Rob listed him perfectly, I was almost 2 inches taller than him and we had similar footwear.

Also, I've met Bonucci, I was a bit taller than him, He looks taller than 6'2 because he is very skinny. I thought he is taller.

How tall are you?
Mark O' Connor said on 11/Mar/20
@Greg I've been to the Dinaric alps and people there are really tall, the average seemed at least 6'1, and so the start of tall at around 6'4 I guess. Loads of people between 6'1/6'5
Hanov said on 11/Mar/20
6'3 very tall
6'4 too tall
6'5 huge
6'6 semigiant
6'7 end of "normal" person
6'8 legit giant

@Jdubbz

I don't think it's necessarily a quality of life issue but rather about the benefits that you gain from one height versus another. Even Canson who is accustomed to being 6'4 doesn't see any practical benefits that you can gain beyond 6'2. I personally wouldn't go above 6'3 but only because I don't want to massively standout even though 6'3 stands out even more so than 6'2 does.

@Bobby: yea in terms of practicality but I can say that at any height really. A guy who is 6’ flat may not have the tall stature of a 6’2 or 6’3” guy but isn’t by any means disadvantaged. It’s all about looks at that point. However, I don’t feel that 6’2 or 6’3” is a height where you really have issues either. I would still take 6’4” afternoon height over any other height including 6’3 or 6’2”. Then, I would go with 6’3 then 6’2 right behind it. 6’5 is probably next after 6’2”.
Luca said on 11/Mar/20
@cristi and what's your usual out of bed height? I've also read that you've met several football players... Who did you meet in particular ? How was their height in relation to yours?
Battery6565 said on 10/Mar/20
@Rob
Have you considered a visit to Madame Tussauds?

I think it will be good if you do that and take pictures and see how you measure against the celebrity statues as they're pretty much the same as the real people and you will have a better idea of the celebrities' heights who normal people are less likely to see in person at a convention or something.

Example: The Rock, Donald Trump, Einstein, The Royals, The Bollywood actors, athletes, singers and much much more.

I 100% think you should consider it.
Jdubbz said on 10/Mar/20
@Greg: Nah I get that it can be inconvenient. I personally haven't had many issues aside from cars and airplanes, but many tall guys who live in more cramped areas probably hate their height. I don't consider 6'5+ to be ideal by any means, but saying it's horrifying is taking it a bit too far. I agree that 6'2.5-6'3 is generally the limit at which you avoid most of the tall problems. That's a very nice height, but so is your 5'10.5.
Greg said on 9/Mar/20
@Canson I know right? 😂 to be fair in the 6’2.5ish guys defense we measured him roughly using the Jake Gyllenhaal method so room for error might have been like a fraction or so. If we did Can against the wall or stadiometer properly it would have been more accurate. and I have no idea why they don’t own up to it, well it’s not that he refuses to get measured but he refuses to properly measure the closest he’s done is send a photo of him next to a bent tape measure that doesn’t even show his entire body. But it showed him a bit over the 5’9 mark. I believe I shared the photo here before, he tried to say “ oh I am 5’11” maybe 5’10.5” at worst and he’s not even that height in shoes unless he’s wearing a CAT boot he could probably reach 5’11 range in those. I think he would have about an inch and change on a guy like Rob but then again he would try to guess Rob at 5’10. I think we are supposed to measure and compare to show I’m taller but he rarely leaves his house so that’s an issue. I bet majority of my friends wouldn’t even agree to a Jake G style measurement.
The destroyer said on 9/Mar/20
Ideal height here in the UK or in the US is 182cm to 184cm, comfortably taller than average height around 176cm, 185cm + is when you start looking lanky etc
The destroyer said on 9/Mar/20
In the UK and the US 182cm is the start of tall
Canson said on 9/Mar/20
@Jdubbz: I agree. I meant more 200cm than just 6’6.5”. I said 6’6.5 just because i go by afternoon heights so that’s kinda the ceiling for it but I think you’re right maybe 6’6.75”. At your height tho 197cm you’re on the upper end of very tall. If I had to choose A cap for practicality and comfort it’s around where you and Christian sit.

@Greg and Jdubbz: I don’t see 6’5” flat as a bad height as I’m that out of bed. It’s not anything terrible so Jdubbz is probably right but I will say that the more you move over 6’5” the worse it gets. I could see an argument that 6’5 6’5.5 but 6’5.5 6’6” for sure. But in my case I only measure that for a few minutes in the morning so I don’t know the full extent of always being it. I certainly don’t see it at 6’4.25” and Jdubbz at 6’5.5 doesn’t
Mark O' Connor said on 9/Mar/20
@Cristi Now measuring with a stadiometer I get 186.5 low and you are 187.5-188 low height right? I think you don't need to go that far to feel towerg at your height, as I feel towering at my height in some occasions...

Mark O' Connor said on 9/Mar/20
@Greg I live in the north of Italy in the Alps, and the average is taller than in the rest of Italy.. maybe around 5'9.5, while in a lot of places in the country is around 5'8.5 or something like that. I agree with what you said and yes your height is above average imo. I would still classify 6 feet as tall, when I was that height I felt taller than at least 80% of people. I said that can be viewed as a height between above average and tall because you're taller than most people but not by a big margin.

What exactly is "horrifying" about being 6'5 or taller? Idk if you guys are trolling or just being hyperbolic, but this is just ridiculous. I've been every height between 5'7 and 6'5 1/2 in the past 10 years, and my quality of life has not changed at all. Please don't assume that you know what it's like to be very tall when you're not. It's honestly quite insulting.

@Jdubbz: right nothing is horrifying about it. It’s funny I was just asked on JJ Watt’s page why do I and my friends round down? Meaning me at 6’4.25 why do I round that down to 6’4? And I guess why does my 6’5.25 friend round down to 6’5? Meaning the heights we are closest to for the majority of the day (9 out of 16 hours). So, You get comments like what you just responded to which go both ways in terms of taller and shorter, and what I see on occasion and they are some of the dumbest ones you can possibly find and pretty insulting on both ends really

Alphabetaomega said on 9/Mar/20
@Bobby
Most people don’t wear shoes more than 1 inch. Wearing 1 inch shoes won’t make you be perceived as 1 inch taller because it’s offset by the fact that most people are also wearing similar height shoes. In order to be perceived as 1 inch taller, you would actually need to be wearing shoes that add 2 inches to your barefoot height. It’s 2 inches because you need 1 extra inch ON TOP OF other people’s shoe height. And that requires super thick, uncomfortable shoes that most guys don’t wear.

Let’s say a 5’10 guy wants to add 1 inch to his height to become 5’11. That requires you to be 6’0 in shoes because that’s what a legit 5’11 guy is in shoes. Being 5’11 in shoes still makes you shorter than a 5’11 guy in shoes because he’s not 5’11 in shoes, he’d be 6’0 in shoes. So even if you’re 1 inch taller in shoes, you’d still be 1 inch shorter than a legit 5’11 guy (who’s 6’0 in shoes). That requires shoes that gain you 2 inches taller than your barefoot height.

It actually takes a lot to gain 2 inches in height. Unless you’re wearing high heels, very high lifts, or uncomfortably thick shoes, shoes don’t give as much height as you think.
John124 said on 8/Mar/20
I think tall heights can be grouped in to 6 categories.

Category 1:

6'8 - 7'0+

This category has many disadvantages and a few advantages. Basketball is the obvious sport to play in this range, with loop shots and slam dunks delivered with ease. There are still players under 6'0 though that have worked incredibly hard on jump training and can slam dunk time and time again. Being able to slam dunk at 6'6+ therefore comes more as a consequence of height rather than ability. People 6'8+ don't so much jump as they do simply put the ball in the basket.

Category 2:

6'6 - 6'7

Better to be 6'6 than 6'7 for sure. Anything above 6'6 is excessive. In boxing, establishing range and use of the jab to set up attacks favours the taller opponent. Reach is also an important factor as a fighter that is shorter may have longer limbs and greater reach than one that is taller. One of 5'10 Mike Tyson's techniques was to bend his knees and spring up and forward, placing precision hooks and uppercuts inbetween his taller opponent's guard. His speed, accuracy, and power is what made him infamous. His lower centre of gravity also gave him more stability.
In Muay Thai a height of around 181cm - 183cm has the advantage of relatively long reach, but still a low enough centre of gravity to assist with balance and delivering force from the ground up when kicking and kneeing. Big, wide, and flat feet can also help with balance and stability.
Having said this, three of the top current Muay Thai Fighters are well below 6'0.
They are Buakaw Banchamek at 5'8, Yodsanklai Fairtex at 5'8.5, and arguably the most technically skilled Muay Thai fighter of all time - Saenchai at 5'4.
5'9 Saen Parunchai is a Muay Khao (Knee Fighter). Muay Khao's use knees and elbows as their primary weapons, and because they are usually tall they gain good leverage in the clinch. 5'9 is the starting point of tall in Thailand make no mistake.

Category 3:

6'4 - 6'4.5

This is the first truly good range. Some women will be very attracted to men in this range. Guys this height will be taller than most. However, it's too tall to appeal to most average height women. Finding clothes your size, travelling in trains and particularly airplanes will be a nightmare. It's inconvenient to be 6'4 despite it being a good height in some ways, and at this height a guy will appeal mainly to very tall women around 5'9/5'10+ and won't look as good (in my opinion) next to women shorter than this.

Category 4:

6'2 - 6'3

This range has many benefits and few disadvantages. 6'3 is the first height at which a person will struggle to find clothes their size in certain places but it's still not a bad height. At 6'2 with a muscular build you would be size XL in countries like the UK or USA, and that size of clothing you will find absolutely everywhere in these countries.

Category 5:

6'1 - 6'1.5

This category essentially has no disadvantages, and so this is where subjectivity becomes potentially more prominent than objectivity. In my opinion people that are 6'1 - 6'1.5 still look a bit too long in the body, not on-screen, but in certain photos and in real life. I think their heads are slightly too big in general. When I look at Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime at 6'1.5 his head did look slightly too big to me, but this doesn't really make much difference because the very broad and muscular physique he achieved made him perfectly proportioned. The type of build he had requires a person to be 185cm+ to look it's best. He completely evened himself out and lost the otherwise lanky look he would have had. 6'2 - 6'4 is also great for bodybuilding and 6'4 Lou Ferrigno looked good, though Arnold's height with similar build looked better. What he did for bodybuilding can never be surpassed because he made it the modern day global phenomenon that it has become. The problem of course is that steroids were required to create his phisique. Without steroids to build sufficient muscle mass to even the body out, 6'1 - 6'1.5 still looks a bit lanky.

Category 6:

6'0 - 6'0.5

This category has no disadvantages. A larger subsection of women in countries like the UK or USA are in the 5'4 - 5'5 range, and a 6'0 man won't be too tall for most of them. Though I still think an approximately 5 - 6 inch difference between couples looks best, and maximum 8 inches. This makes an allowance for women to wear 3 - 4 inch heels if they choose to, and still have the man be at least 2 inches taller than them.
6'0 is tall but never too tall, and never too short. The head size of people that are 183cm/184cm is the perfect balance, a good size but still not too big or too small. This range is also not lanky in any way. You will be able to find clothes your size in most countries, and you wouldn't be too tall or short in any country. It's the perfect height for travelling the world. A person in this range should bulk up naturally and get muscular, and they will look more proportioned than any other height.

Greg said on 8/Mar/20
@mrfunnyguy Yeah what Bobby said, different footwear is going to yield in a different perception of height. So 'in shoe' height is not stupid, however claiming an 'in shoe' height is. Shoes come in all sorts of thickness with people adding insoles and or lifts if not elevator shoes so that's going to definitely change how people view them.

Greg said on 8/Mar/20
@Mark O’Connor you’re in the UK right? Yeah the average there is the same as U.S 5’9 range for Men. So many guys inflate that’s why everyone’s is surprised about someone being a particular height like you said 5’8-5’9 even 5’10-6’0 people will argue with you that you are taller. Especially the taller someone gets over 6’0 the easier it is to overestimate them. That being said yeah at 6’1.5 you would be pretty tall basically the same as 6’2. However, I will say that 6’0 is tall in most places. Above average would be my height it’s basically tallish/above average. Because I’m taller than most people I come across. I was at a casino yesterday with probably hundreds of people and I only saw like 10 6’0+ guys I was taller than most guys I saw with the exception of a small few. These people where almost all older then me too oddly enough. Even in Dinarc Alps they don’t average 6’0-6’1 like maybe closer to 6’0 or 5’11.5 I think.
Greg said on 8/Mar/20
@Jdubbz I wouldn’t say 6’5 is horrifying, that’s an obvious exaggeration but its definitely too tall in terms of comfortable living like fitting in small spaces, low ceilings and door frames, airplanes finding clothes and back problems. But if you manage to get past that then if it’s your cup of tea then so be it. Personally 6’2.5-3 would be my cut off point, even then it would start to get uncomfortable.

@Canson: I agree that 198 and especially 197 are not extremely tall. Honestly, I wouldn't even call 6'6.5" extreme. Maybe 200cm or flat 6'7. I'd say 193 - 200cm is very tall, and 201-207 is extremely tall. I consider people above 7' to be legit giants so maybe 208-213cm is "semigiant".

Not really. Some people wear different size shoes and boots. Some people could be wearing 0.75 inch shoes, some could be in 1.25 shoes, other could be wearing 1.5 shoes, and some might be in footwear that gives only 0.5 inches. And others could be in like Timberland stylized boots that give 1.75-2 inches. So, you never know, some people could be wearing different kind of height giving footwear, one guy could be boots but has an inch insole inside it. I think it matters more than you say.

@pov: There are 4'11 girls who claim 5'2. They're genuinely shocked and stunned when they're measured. They assumed that they were taller than they were. They likely judged their heights by other short girls who assumed that they were taller than they really were.

@Bobby: I'm not sure that I understand your post. I take it that you're saying that facts and figures don't discriminate. As for heights, I think that we should base them on particular countries. A 5'6 man may be a bit tall in some countries, for instance.

It is really funny hearing some people claiming some heights, inflating or deflating other people's height when you actually are 'height conscious'and you know they are lying. Most people inflate heights,I agree 100% that's why some people think that 5'9 or 5'8 are short heights when they are actually average and below average but for sune not in the short range. at my height(6'1.5 low)I feel taller than more than 90% of people, so I feel 100% tall, not just above average or slightly tall. I also think that 6 feet is a height between above average and tall, but who thinks 6'1 low is not tall must leave in another planet (or Netherlands and Dinaric Alps lol)

Greg said on 7/Mar/20
@Pov it’s weird because Napoleon Complex is real, however out of all the short friends I have most of them tend to be honest about their height. I know a 5’2/5’3 guy he claims 5’3 and a 5’4 guy who is pretty honest about his height. It’s the slightly below average to fairly tall that inflate the most. At least from my experience. I’m also obsessed with height too lol, I bring it up as often as I could in group chats or in person but i don’t inflate myself/ others. In fact I basically call everyone out who lies about their height. I’m surprised he thinks he’s 5’7 at 5’5 that’s pretty noticeable although it’s your classic 2 inch height inflation. I would notice because if someone’s a bit above my eye level versus below. It’s funny how he thinks you’re 5’10-5’11 and your 5’10ish friend is 5’8, it would make more sense for him to guess you as like 6’1-6’2 and your 5’10 friend as 6’0 or something to keep the lies strategic. I usually notice guys a few inches shorter than me claim 5’10/5’11 when they are max 5’7-5’9 or something. Your friend might not want to get measured under the tape, if no stadiometer are available I guess you could use the tape. Preferably with the aerosol can method.
I learned some people will try to contest the tape and say it’s wrong or “no way the doctor measured me at this so I must be this height” I measured a 6’2.5ish guy who claimed 6’4 now claims 6’5 and he tried to say the tape was wrong and there was no way it was right lol. So it could go one of two ways. I think it’s stupid to lie about your height but for guys it’s an ego and masculinity thing. I have this 5’9 range friend who swears he is 5’11, he says his doctor measured him so it must be true, I’m like 5’10.5-5’10.75 early in the day and I edge him out noticeably, I’m truing to get us measured so I can prove I’m taller because he refuses to believe it. My posture is also really bad so I’m trying to do correction exercises and stretches as well as taking glucosamine to maximize my height. But if I where to take a guess I would peg him 5’9 3/8ths or a touch above he barely gives an average impression and doesn’t look above average at all. My friends are so height unaware though they think we are the same height, but I’ll prove them wrong.
Greg said on 7/Mar/20
@Progking the start of tall in the U.K./US is 5’11.5 evening I believe, 5’10.5+ is the start of tallish as 5’10.5 basically looks 5’11, and a well proportioned 5’10/5’11 guy can definitely look tallish especially with thick footwear. I think your height is solid though you are definitely in the tall range, you could probably fool some people for 6’1. What Sean was basically saying was you hav ever was have a good height. You could be ideal within 178-189cm arguably give or take. A 6’1.5 guy would be at a solid height too.
Greg said on 7/Mar/20
@Kel 6’1 isn’t bad actually I would go as high as 6’2 maybe 6’2.5” evening at the absolute most after that I just don’t see the point. Unless you want to tower everyone and use your height as a crutch which is stupid personally. If I could grow to 6’1 though I would do it in a heart beat.

@Greg

what exactly is insecure about me ? what did I say to make me seem insecure ? there is no reason to assume I am insecure only because I call out some bs here

also ...several european countries have an average of 179-180cm . what are you talking about man . also for young european men the overall average is around 5'10 so yes 5'9 - 5'11 is in the same category with 5'9 being bottom average and 5'11 being high end of average . it is a no brainer

rather putting 5'9 in the same category with 5'7 or even 5'8 is utter bs . why ? because 5'7 would be 2 inches below average if average would be 5'9 and it would be 3 inches below average if average is 5'10 .

also you say I seem insecure but I can also easily say that you seem insecure since you always claim that average height in european countries including in germany where I fu**ing live since 30 years is lower than it is and deny facts . average height for non elderly german men is around 180cm ...it is even MEASURED . several european countries have an average of roughly 180cm or slightly below like slovenia , croatia , nordic countries etc. . you always deny that to be above average . so how am I insecure saying that average is that high ...because by saying that I fall below the mean average height . while you on the other hand try to bring down the average to be above average . what kind of double standard is that .

no offense bro but thats ridiculous

I am 5'10 in the morning and 5'9.25 in the evening with good posture. you would look barely taller than me next to me but group me with 5'7-5'8 but you yourself as above average and in the same group with 6'0 ? oooooooookaaaayyyy ....yeah right

I don't think you need me to tell you that, but, hell's bells, I know what you mean! All the best! Sandy XX 😁👍

Ha-ha-ha, you maDe my day, definitely it's short man syndrome, but keeping yourself honest (and funny) guy and claim 5'9 to him. Should be fun ;)
Mark O' Connor said on 7/Mar/20
@AndrewV
I won't add 2/3 cm to each category, maybe 1 cm. For example adding 2/3 cm you will put the above averange range starting at 180/181 to 183/184. And the regular tall range from 186/7 to 189/90. For me it is too much( based on low heights),for morning heights will be ok imo,I hope you understand what I mean.
pov said on 6/Mar/20
I’ve literally got a mate at work who won’t stop banging on about height. He even brings it up in our work whatsapp group with like 20 others in the chat. He’s short, like 5”5 but he claims 5”7. I’m 6”0.5, and I got a another mate who’s about 5”10, but he downgrades our heights saying I’m 5”10/5”11 and my 5”10 mate is 5”8, just because we say he’s notv 5”7. I’m assuming this is to decrease the gap. Is this an example of short man syndrome? 😂

He get’s pissed off when we say he’s 5”5 (which we genuinely believe his real height) but he claims 5”7, so he feels he has to downgrade ours too.

Any ways I can deal with this insecure guy? It started off as funny, but the guy brings height into every conversation now and it’s actually annoying now 😂

I think I’m going to have to bring a tape measure in at work on Monday and close the case once and for all! Lol

@seanwilliamwinter 6'2 in shoes is tall for sure, its in the start of tall range though. I am around 6'1.5 in shoes(6'0.25-0.5 barefoot) and consider myself in that start of tall range. 6'0 in shoes(or 5'11 barefoot) is tallish, its a very underrated height and many people have no idea how tall it is. When i was 5'11 as a teen i did feel tallish and thought i was 6'0. I would say the ideal range is 180-187 cm, to be tall enough. I.e. a guy who's 6'1.5 for most of the day is at a great height and theres no need to be taller.
Kel said on 6/Mar/20
I would hate to be anything over 6’1”. The thought of being something like 6’5 is horrifying.
AndrewV said on 6/Mar/20
@Mark O'Connor

That would be a good chart if you take into account all age groups and ethnic backgrounds. For young white men in their 20s and 30s though I would peg the average range at 176cm-180cm and add 2cm-3cm to each category.
Bobby 178cm said on 6/Mar/20
@Sandy Cowell

I seem to be the opposite and feel substantially taller than I measure, and I've always had a healthy measure of self-image, but sometimes when people insult your physical appearance it can be difficult not to let those jibes get to you.
Greg said on 6/Mar/20
@Mark O’ Connor
Yours is probably the most accurate Chart that I see here yet.
Greg said on 6/Mar/20
@Lell 6’3+ you do get tall comments, but you don’t draw in attention from every single random person. 6’3 is standout tall. Only if you’re talking to a friend or in a social group. Assuming random people would bat an eye after 6’5+ especially 6’6+. I think to catch the attention of 99% of people you would have to be nearing in 7’0 like 6’8+ or something.

@Progking My chart was similar to yours at 14, but then you grew more. Interesting how that works I think I was around 165-167cm at 14.
Greg said on 6/Mar/20
@C-mo Kind of hard to believe that when your posts indicate otherwise. You could say you’re not insecure all you want but what you say contradicts that. And exactly, you shouldn’t be insecure so if you’re not that’s good 5’9 is an okay height. But I’m going to stop you there again and say that 5’9 is not grouped with 5’10, sure it’s an inch difference so nothing drastic and in your case it’s 3/4ths of an inch taller than you. However, even looking at percentiles it’s higher. And not to mention you grouping 5’11 with 5’9 doesn’t make any sense at all, 5’9-5’11 is not the average range, that’s bias. Because even in Europe let’s be realistic how many Countries actually average 5’11+ probably not more than 2 or 3 realistically speaking I can only think of like two regions that average at least 5’11+. Now keeping that in mind in the U.S there isn’t more than a 5’9ish average so anything above it is above average. That being said we all like talking about height otherwise we wouldn’t be posting on this forum. I do agree with you though that an aesthetic height could be between 178-183cm. But 5’11-6’0 is good I wouldn’t mind being that height as well. Hope you understood better now Cheers mate.

@Cristi

What is your out of bed/absolute low height range? Cause my cousin has recently been in Sweden and he told me there are many guys as tall as me there. (I am a really solid 188 cm)
mrfunnyguy said on 6/Mar/20
@Lell I agree with you that approximately 190cm is probably the best height. Just above average here in Sweden but not too tall.

@Cristi Think about what you're saying. If most guys in Malmo and Stockholm are between 5'7 and 6'5, then the average must be 6'0. But then you say that most guys are between 5'9.5 and 6'0.5?! So you just don't want to acknowledge that the average is six foot? It's soooo typical of people to say things like that, like for example I've heard "5'11 is average but most people are taller than average". It's pretty stupid tbh.

@xyounge I'm pretty sure the average height at my previous university could have been around 6'3 as a matter of fact, but not in my class maybe. When I walked around the hallways, I could regularly see a group of guys who were all almost a head taller than me!!

174-177- Average
178-181 tallish
182-185 Solid tall.
186-189 Very tall.
+190 extremly tall.
Cristi said on 6/Mar/20
@xyounge
@mrfunnyguy.

The most of guys here know that Sweden have tall people, but you guys are overreacting. I was in Sweden, in Stockholm and Malmo, and at 188cm, I was solid tall. I was taller than 8/10 guys from there, and the ones who were taller than me had like 1-3 inches more than me. I never felt small then, in just on case, when a ~ 6'10 guy passed behind me, he was huge. But most of the guys I've saw in the center of Malmo and Stockholm were between 5'7 and 6'5. The majority were between 5'9.5 and 6'0.5 .
Even when I went to college with the erasmus project, there were tall guys, like +6'2, but not everywhere. There were a lot of Swedish young men, between 5'9.5 and 6 foot at university.
Sean william Winter said on 6/Mar/20
wear big boots to hit 6ft in shoes. dont feel paticularly tall. but above average yeh easy. at 6'1 mr funnyguy your 6'2 in shoes how can not feel a bit tall. 6'1 guys always look tall to me. ideal imo is somewere arond 182 to 185 cm. imo obviosuly. did i get a bad deal at 5'10 n change nope i could be a short ass 5'3 bloke. then id complain.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Mar/20
Hi Bobby,

I myself had a touch of body dysmorphia when I was around my mid to late teens, thinking that I was the same height as people of 5ft4/5. I was 25 when I saw a reflection of myself with a true 5ft4 guy and saw that he was appreciably taller. I also thought I was fatter than I was.

I didn't really start measuring myself until I had to, for forms and that sort of thing. If Mrfunnyguy has actually measured himself, so perhaps he lives in a particularly tall area in Sweden. I live in a taller-than-average area in England, on the outskirts of London. I might add that the kids in my class at school were fairly tall on the whole too. There was nobody below 5ft2/3 by the time we were 15/16.

I wish you a great weekend, Bobby!

Cheers, Sandy XX 😁👍

This is my height chart for europe and Us (based on low heights):
Below 165: very short
165-169cm: short
170-173cm: below average
174-177cm: bang average
178-180cm: above average
181-183cm: slightly tall
184-187cm: regular tall
188-191cm: strong tall
192-196cm: very tall
197-201cm: extremely tall
202-206 cm: borderline giant
207/ 208 and up: giant

Of course you can add or remove 1-2cm in each direction. What is your opinion guys? And your height chart?
Ezequiel said on 5/Mar/20
@cmillz Yeah, I agree with that assessment. I’m 5’7 and 5/8 and I definitely don’t feel short in public. However, obviously when you get 6’ and up guys in the picture, that’s when I start to feel a wee bit minuscule. Frankly, I’d like to be a solid to strong 5’8 just so I don’t have to keep rounding up anymore. If anything, I’d settle for 5’8 and 1/2 so I can look at least average.

@Super23 I'm a bit taller than you and for 2 years younger and I asked the same question. I don't know bro to me it seems too much to lose some much height. Unfortunately that's the case for me too. My brother for example who is 17yrs old wakes up at exactly the same height as me(177cm)but he only drops about 0.5 cm during the day. Of course he is a lot lighter than me but i don't know if that plays any role

@cmillz

nah ...this is rather how it is :

5'7 starting to get short now but nothing stand out
5'8 below average but not that short
5'9 low average
5'10 mid/solid average
5'11 high average
6'0 above average but not that tall yet
6'1 start of tall


also

5'9 = decent/okay height
5'10 = good height
5'11 = very good height
6'0 = perfect height
6'1 if the proportions and build are good also perfect

but my personal favorite height is around 179-180cm
Sakz said on 5/Mar/20
@Jonus 6'4 is very tall in most countries, with extremely tall typically being near 6'7. I personally would only settle for 6'4 if I had a muscular build, much like a Jason Momoa. That way you don't appear lanky and for me the negatives outweigh the positives at that height. However it's best to enjoy it as you said because it's beyond your control and there's always a worst case.
xyounge said on 5/Mar/20
@ Mrfunnyguy Like I said, many people are very rude and arrogant on thie web. They don't believe anything but their own illusion. If a Shawn Bradley's schoolmate claims:"we had a guy who was 7'5 when I went to the high school." I can image these jackass would type:"No way, the average height of US is only 5'9, it cannot be a highschooler was 7'5, you must be trolling! You must be funny! You misjudged his height! blablabla..."

My nephews live in MidWest, their high school has a ton of tall guys based on measurement by their PE teachers a few of months ago. One of their classes even has two boys who are over 6'11. But in here, they won't believe and insist that my nephews had been trolling. The United States has more than 24,000 public schools & 5000 private schools, I bet I can select thousands of ones are much taller(5'11-6'1+) than the average height(5'9) of the whole younger generation.

I don't know how many high schools/colleges/unis in Sweden, but I deem that some ones are much taller. I will not be surprised if a few of Swedish schools are close to 6'3 on average. So people whom go to those higher schools can claim 6'1 is short or 6'3 is not considered tall on their campus. Is it too hard for them?

for the 942942 time I am not insecure at my height . what I am saying has nothing to do with being insecure and I dont know where you got this from . I have a very okay height . only because I would like to be 5'11 - 6'0 it doesnt mean that I am insecure . I just like to talk about height thats all

but anyway . 5'9 and 5'10 ARE in the same category . it is actually odd to claim otherwise . if the average is 5'9 then 5'10 is only 1 inch above . if 5'10 is average (which it is when you take out old men and ethnic minorities that bring down the average ) then 5'9 is only 1 inch below



average range is 5'9 - 5'11
mrfunnyguy said on 4/Mar/20
@Bobby 1.78m (5ft 10in) As a matter of fact I was once guessed as 175cm (5'9), but since I have measured myself with different tools at different places I don't think measured myself wrong. By the way, I uploaded on January 18th a photo and video where I measure a refrigerator as 185cm and I stand next to it if you don't believe me.

cmillz said on 4/Mar/20

No doubt, 5'10 is a high average level. Generally 179 cm looks pretty tall to me, not short ever, but often that depends from body and length of legs because skinny slim men gives bigger impression for everyone.
But yeah it's good above average in my book. 179.5-181.5 cm is something like neutral zone where you so close to be an tall, but didn't i think. And being 182+ you've got start of tall category at least in my opinion. Finest height and i remembered it.

@Nik

Again, this is a height forum. We are discussing height here, not our political views. If you wanna throw in these comments, take it to Sookie's Den. I'm not picking on you, but you have to be pragmatic.

@Poster

Honestly, I'm tired of this entitled culture that we're in now. People take their human rights for granted because more than half the people in the world wouldn't be considered "others" at one point in time. Especially when it comes to height, it's tiresome to hear about constantly. This height is below average, it's a fact. There's no possible way that 5'7 would ever be tall unless you're a woman. It's just a statistical fact. But I'm tired of this argument being made for it, it's very stale.

@Sandy Cowell

Honestly, I don't even think he's 6'1 because the average height in Sweden is 5'11 at most for the younger generation, so he's technically above average to tall at his height if he really is 6'1. Again, based on his perception, he's no more than 5'9. If he wants to swap out heights, I'll gladly be 6'1.

I agree that most men like smaller women, but I wouldn't go above 5'8 given my own height.

EH said on 4/Mar/20
I think worrying about your height is ultimately a worthless endeavor. Is 5’8 tall enough? How do people perceive me at 5’2? Would my life be better if I was just an inch taller? Am I defective?

We are all born with burdens we must bear. Something I must continually tell myself is to be confident. Period. No need to look for some feature to be confident about....just do it even if you can’t think of a single reason to be. I’m a person alive in the year 2020...that itself is pretty cool.

Think of life as a survival game. Through the randomness of life, some of us will play the game on a harder setting. Height, weight, poverty, birth defect, abuse...a lot of things can put us on a higher difficulty path. If you’re shorter than average — embrace the challenge...have an inner confidence that you have the power to push forward in life. Age and wisdom can often let us know that physical characteristics do very little to define a person.

Sure, many of us can gripe about our height and their probably are many legitimate disadvantages sometimes but I wonder how much our mental approach towards a perceived physical fault can limit us compared to the “fault” itself. This could be even more true for the average range guys that let height impact their confidence.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Mar/20
@ Bobby - Hi! Always good to hear from you! I hope you're enjoying your studies and enriching your mind. I wrote earlier on John Lennon and that prompted me into listening to the Beatles Double White Album....

Mr Funny Guy is, at 6ft1, what many men consider the ideal height, but if he's surrounded by taller people, he's not going to feel terribly tall, more's the pity. It's all relative to the people in you're locality. I feel I live in a tall area, and I've even had old men reach for items in shops that I couldn't attain - even on tiptoe! That's very nice of them, of course, and long as it isn't accompanied by a scathing comment!

My Mum swore that men like short women. She had a tall friend who envied her, even though she was, at that time, about 5ft4, which isn't unduly small. I think it's entirely a matter of taste.

Have a great week, Bobby!

All the very best,

Greg said on 3/Mar/20
@C-Mo First of all weren’t you just saying how when you thought I was grouping 5’7 with 5’9 that it was wrong? Even though I wasn’t using that same logic if you’re grouping 5’9-5’11 that doesn’t even make sense. The average overall in Europe is about 5’9 +/- which includes all the countries. 5’9 isn’t in the same category as 5’10 or 5’11. 5’10/5’11 would be upper average/above average in most places internationally. That being said I have no idea where you even saw someone say that 5’9 was short. Other than Khaled Taban who seemed like a troll or something; but he doesn’t even post here anymore. If you’re insecure about your height (in general )being 5’9 then you must have something internally wrong with you because 5’9 is perfectly average. 5’10 range is definitely above average I can tell you that without a doubt. No ones saying it’s hard to understand but it doesn’t seem like you even know what you are trying to say.
Canson said on 3/Mar/20
@C-Mo: I would say upper short for a male is probably 5’7 range. I think Rob at his height is only slightly below avg for a US male. 5’9 is avg but not short and 5’10 is slightly above

@Bobby: That's good advice. I wish that some site owners (not Rob) would take your advice! I look at a certain site each day in order to get recent news about paranormal phenomena. The site-owner and his employees routinely make the assumption that we all share their views on politics and religion, and they take jabs at various groups and individuals in their articles on things like cryptozoology and UFOs.

To bring it back to height, we need to learn that objective facts and subjective opinions aren't the same thing. There's nothing wrong with saying that 5'6 men are seen as short to very short in Minnesota. There's no need to add the qualifier, "but we're all God's children in the end". People know that you mean nothing hurtful when you state facts.
Jonus said on 3/Mar/20
@Sakz, Yeah 6'2 is definitely ideal enough, but I don't see any problem with being 6'4, it's honestly not that tall to me. Don't get me wrong it's a super tall height, but not extreme if you know what I mean. I would put it in the normal tall bracket. Jason Momoa is a person who rocks that height wellllllll. 6'5 an exception, with 6'6 and up being too tall for me. But if you are 6'6 and up, just enjoy it because it is still a gift, it'll just make life a little harder because of the short world you live in haha

Hi, I’m 23 years old, and in the morning I measure at 171-172 cm tall, but at the end of the day I usually measure at 167-168 cm tall. Is it normal for my spine to compress that much throughout the day? I do a lot of walking, so that could be a factor, but it’s just that I’ve never heard of that much compression before. What do you think? Thanks

@Canson Yeah I have pretty broad shoulders too, my back gets wide at the top too. I rarely ever get guessed close to my height. I usually get between 5’11-6’1 if I am wearing boots.

@Nik

That's nice of you to say, but you can't coerce anybody who is old-fashioned and conservative, to agree with you on these things either. Especially about sexuality and gender identity. It's just as destructive to be tolerant on these things and expecting everybody to fall in line with your thinking as it is to be a traditionalist and to force others to fall in line with your thinking too. So, there's a give and take here. I know there are like-minded people for every viewpoint in existence, so I'd rather discuss these things with people that share my political beliefs than to bring them up in a height forum. I can't speak for everybody here, but I am certain that many of us have our own views about the things you mentioned, namely sexuality and gender identity.

I can best describe it as: friends who want to stay friends, don't discuss religion or politics. For very good reason, you can't guarantee people will agree with you, so don't bring these things up. It's CelebHeights, after all, not CelebPolitics.

@Greg

I said some people on this site pretend as if 5'9 is short but 5'10 is above average which doesnt make sense . and some also act as if 5'10 is highly different from 5'9 and as if 5'9 is in the same category with 5'7-5'8 and not in the same category with 5'10 which is not true . because the average height is around 5'10 so 5'9 would only be 1 inch below so 5'9 - 5'11 would be the average range . even if you take/say that the average height is 5'9 then 5'10 is only 1 inch above so still in the same category with 5'9 but in that case if 5'9 is the average then 5'10 would be a bit above average

I did not say that 5'9 is short . I dont know why it is hard to understand . I criticized others who pretend that 5'9 is short but 5'10 is magically "above average" all of a sudden . nonsense

@Nik
I agree, especially when it comes to things like gender, ethnicity, and height, since those things are completely out of one's control. I hate it when people use the term "abnormally tall".

@6'1 guy
The hairline's typically around 1.5" under one's height, but mine are close to 2", since my hairline's relatively low, and my forehead's on the smaller side.

Rob, or anyone else who can answer to my question. Is there any way I can prevent losing so much height during the day? I wake up at 177cm and I lose 2.5 to 3 cm during the day. And by the way is it possible to lose more height by weighing more?

@Sandy Cowell

MrFunnyGuy is actually 6'1/186cm by his own admission but he complains about being shorter than most men at his height in Sweden, and I think that's weird. The average Swedish guy is maybe 5'11 at MOST, and that's for the younger generation. The general population might be like a 5'10 range due to immigrants bringing the average down. If only MrFunnyGuy had Nik's confidence, the guy is only 5'7.25 but doesn't let it bring him down. If he wants to trade heights, I'd gladly be 6'1, it beats being 5'10. I don't think he appreciates his stature, most guys would kill to be his height.

Still, with the way he goes on about being the shortest, I don't think he's as tall as 6'1. I think he could be 5'9 based on his own perception. Or he's got an extreme selective bias and is filtering out all the shorter males for the taller ones. So, in his mind, he thinks the average height might be 6'2 for males. Or he's trolling.
Greg said on 1/Mar/20
@C-Mo but you where saying people said 5'9 is short and 5'10 is above average? you don't make any sense, because now you say 5'9 is average, which yes it is average and 5'10 is above average. I am not turning anything around, just going off of what you said in the previous posts and yes wouldn't we all though?
Greg said on 1/Mar/20
@Jonus an old mate of mine has almost the same height parents as you and he's 6'3.25. His sister though is quite short around 5'0-5'1 or something like that. He had many growth spurts and slowly got taller and taller. You are at a good height I would claim 6'2 with those stats, 6'1 is downgrading yourself personally but if you don't care then that's fine. You will look taller than most guys who claim 6'1, a lot of those guys might even be more under than over the mark. I wouldn't mind being 6'1 or 6'2, I think if you put on some muscle and not appear lanky that would be a good build for someone.
Sakz said on 1/Mar/20
@Progking As a general rule you can claim whatever you want as long as you're not inflating. It's all based on preference. I would say 184cm is reasonable considering you don't drop to 183cm until the end of the day, which is when nobody will see you. I believe claiming somewhere in the middle is the best so not your highest or lowest height, which I'm sure the majority would agree with. That's the height you'll mostly be seen at under most circumstances.

@Jonus If we're going purely by tallness, I would personally consider 6'0-6'2 ideal enough. Even 6'3 can start becoming too tall in many countries where the average is 5'9, but of course not to the extent of 6'4+. You're right about adding mass to your body to avoid lankiness if you're tall. Looking lanky is a disadvantage of being regular tall especially if you're an ectomorph, let alone if you're very tall.

Greg said on 29/Feb/20
@Canson Mark O’Connor Yeah no 5’10/5’11 is above average maybe 5’8-5’9 can be seen around the average. I’m like 5’11ish and have a lanky build my long arms make it harder for me to put pass on them. They don’t look too bad from what I’ve started but keeping in mind having proportions of someone who’s like 6’1-6’2 it’s tough. I think it has to do with genetics.

@Greg: the shoulders are also an area that yield attention when someone is observing. A very broad shouldered man generally gets guessed taller than they are. In your case you would pass for 6’0” just as easily as I could pass for 6’6” in a pair of thicker sneakers and boots

anyone else find that if you measure your height over and over again that your height drops rapidly? I know someone callled Luca touched on this. At night my first measurement was 171.6, then i measured my height many many times and its dropped as low as 171.0. I know that 171.4 is normal low but it kinda shocked me that it dropped as low as it did :/ I feel like it is posture related because by the end i could actually feel my lower back being a bit sore

@ProgKing

I shrunk myself a little to see what 5'10 at the hairline looks like and you're not quite at 6ft :).
If 5'10 is at your hairline, then you're like 5'11 and a half lad, just say 6ft if you want though, I wouldn't have a problem with that. 5'10 for me is at my eye brows lol and 6ft a tiny bit under my hairline lol
c-mo176.2cm said on 1/Mar/20
after more research it seems that da vinci really did consider the ideal height (or at least based his vitruvian man on) as 5'10 instead of 6'0 since the roman foot is smaller than the modern foot measurement

I am confused a little . but one thing is for sure it is roughly between 5'10 and 6'0 for sure . either the one or the other

I will look for links and post them later

I said in a previous height that 5'10 is a good height but to low to be ideal ...well I say that only because people are so tall nowdays and that 6'0 would be better because you will hold your own better next to taller men without losing the good sides of average height but if there werent so many tall people today then I wouldnt see a need to be taller than 5'10-5'11 . from an aesthetic point of view I always found 5'10-5'11 the best

I am 5'10 in the morning and 5'9.25 in the evening and the only reason why I would want to be 2-3 inches taller is to be more comfortable dating 5'7+ chicks with their heels and to hold my own better in some situations when it happens that a bunch of tall men are around

otherwise I wouldnt want to be taller . I think I look very aesthetic and I measured my proportions based on a drawing about proportions (I will share that drawing here later) (5'10 is the height the drawing is based on btw.) and many of my measurements were fairly close to the drawing . I also like my proportions regardless . I only wish my legs were a little bit longer

I think even saying 184 is really your low range, many in your situation are going to be claiming 185. But as I always say, choose what you feel comfortable saying.

Hey Rob is it normal for a guy to stop growing at age 13 (after 2 growth spurts, 9cm and 8cm) if he started puberty at around age 11, and how much of his potential adult height does he lose becuz of this early growth stop?
Editor Rob
More rare to stop at 13-14, the percentage is small
Jonus said on 29/Feb/20
I've just come across this website and i'm here to give my opinion regarding height. According to my measuring tape I am 186.6cm which I believe is like 6'1.5 at around 7pm. I've always said I'm just 6'1, but i'm not going to lie I tell girls i'm 6'2 ahaha. My feelings about this height is that I just feel very very satisfied. Sometimes I can't quite believe I am the height I am because my parents are both not the tallest (5'9 and 5'4) and my dad's side is very short. Both my brothers are shorter than me as well (5'10 and 5'7). I just feel extremely lucky haha. I feel tall but not extremely tall, like I look at extremely tall people and I'm not quite sure I would want to be as tall as that, i'm talking 6'6 and over. I think the best tall heights are 6'-6'4. 6'5 an exception but more than that is wayyyyyy toooooo much. I also think if you are tall, you should add some mass to your frame because it makes you look well proportioned rather than looking lanky and skinny.

I think some of you guys misunderstand me . I didnt say that 5'9 short Greg ....I am exactly saying that it isnt . lol . I dont know why you turn this around . and I am not unhappy with my height either ...I just would like to be a few cm taller

and @Jdubbz . the shoes of my brother give barely more than 1cm :D some shoes are really thin . and if you add the fact they they get thinner with time when you walk in them etc. . I have my doubts that the average guy on the street wears 2.5cm shoes . but maybe I'm wrong . I hope I am wrong because I wont feel odd wearing 3.5 shoes (I modifiy my shoes a little from inside giving me a small lift)

@AndrewV


because 182-183cm is the height with the most positve and least negative sides . you are a couple of centimeters above average but not so much that you lose some good sides of average height range such as building muscles easier , making short women look like midgets or children next to you lol , not having to duck much down when you talk to people in a club , having a low center of gravity compared to tall men which is good for fighting or combat sports (even though being tall has its own advantages too)

182-183cm is just an overall perfect height and as I said from my research from what I can understand Leonardo Da Vinci saw it as the ideal height . his vitruvian man is meant to show the ideal proportions of the male body . he based it on calculations that have even to do with the universe or something . very interesting stuff it seems to be

at 182-183cm you are 0% short . and never too tall . you can model at that height , great height for most sports , no problems finding clothes , women of most heights will like your height and will look good next to you , it is the most aesthetic height (even though I actually always found 180cm to be the most aesthetic but at 180cm you are high end of average or very little above average while at 182.5cm you are more noticably above average) ,

6'0 is the best height :)

@cmo 176.2 a legit 5'10 man is taller than many people think, they can pass as a 6'0 guy like me as the 5'10 mark comes up pretty much to my hairline, thats little difference. So 5'10 is great, but to get a taste of being tall 6'0 is good enough for me

Mark O' Connor said on 27/Feb/20
Do you guys agree that for someone who is average size, like 5'9/5'11 is easier to have a "normal" build and if you are tall is easier to be lanky (if this make sense)? I am over 6'1 and feel a bit lanky, and guys shorter than me usually have a more 'compact' build.

Easier? Probably. But that’s more for looks or aesthetics. Doesn’t always correlate to pure muscle or even strength. But it’s also more common for a guy that size to both have a “normal build” vs a “lanky Build” for a taller person or even a well-defined “muscular build” vs a more “normal” build for a taller person. I’d probably bump your average category down to 5’8-5’10 being 5’9 is avg for males, but a couple other factors come into play. The shorter guy will likely be more inclined to put that muscle on from what I’ve seen whereas someone who is taller may be more content with a normal build. But An example I’ll give is a friend of mine I work out with is 5’9.5” afternoon height and he looks a bit bigger (arms/legs) than I do at 6’4”. That’s despite us having similar body fat percentages and neither of us being overweight

@C-Mo: I’ve noticed myself wearing shoes that are around 3cm lately but it’s Winter. Basketball sneaks tend to be 3cm (1.2-1.25”) and Timberland Boots as well as some dress shoes depending on the thickness of the heel. All of my dress shoes are of the same thickness roughly 3cm.

@Canson:

I work out more than I did last year, but if anything, I'd think that a stronger back and core would decrease the chance of height loss. I also don't do heavy squats or deadlifts. This shrinkage coincided with lower back pain, so I think there may be an issue with a disk or something. Not too sure.

@c-mo:

While I do see a lot of men in flat shoes, I typically see more in sneakers. I can't think of any sneaker that only gives 2cm of height, but maybe the average isn't quite as high as 3cm. Maybe more 2.5-2.8cm range.

I don't disagree with what you're saying about 5'9 vs 5'10 though. I'm guessing that the posters you're talking about try to think of their height in the best light possible and interpret being 55th percentile or whatever as above average. It really is kind of absurd. I personally wouldn't feel above average unless I was taller than like 8/10 guys, but I guess that is somewhat biased. I like to think of average as a range (eg, 5'9-5'11) and above/below average as any height outside of that range.

As far as Greg saying 5'7-5'9, I don't think he meant say that 5'9 in the same category as 5'7. Rather, I think he meant that guys anywhere in that height range tend to inflate themselves to 5'10, which is sometimes true.
Greg said on 28/Feb/20
@Grayloth Idk dude 5'11 is a bit on the higher side to be the average in Sweden, Bosnia and Amsterdam I would 100% agree that it's 5'11 range, in Sweden most I would argue is 178-179cm for young ethnic swuedes, Ben could probably chime in and agree on this.
Greg said on 28/Feb/20
@C-mo I am obsessed with height too, OCD or not I have a passion for height and we all do to an extent because we are here on a height forum discussing it amgonst each other. To be fair, nobody is saying that 5'9 is short, if you feel on the shorter side it's because you are paying attention to the guys taller than you as opposed to shorter. I catch myself doing that too at times; but even I don't really feel short, I feel tallish and above average seeing the average here for young men is about 5'9 +/- depending. Even in Europe you would be low average at worst if not bang on average, so I don't see a need to worry about it. Most Russians aren't really that tall with an exception of a few. The average height for men in Russia is probably between 5'8-5'9 Realistically I would guess 5'8.5. To connect what you said to Jdubbz most guys are in about 1/2 inch to 1 inch sneaker. Let's say .75 on average since we will be taking the middle value of the two. Now that being said why do think that a 5'10.5" guy will not look above average to you? A decent 5'10 range even weak 5'11 guy can appear tallish a lot of the times, give them the right proportions and they will be called tall on occasions. I still am not sure where you are getting this ' I am short' thing, are you secretly khaled taban or something? Please get out of here with this 5'9 is short bull because it's not. It's a decent height, relax. I never put 5'7-and 5'10 in the same catagory either if I say 5'7-5'9 means just ranging from those heights and not that they are in the same catagory. Despite not being too far apart 5'7 is shortish and below average 5'8 is low average in most place, 5'9 is bang on or within low average if not slightly below in the tall average Countries.

@Mark O'Connor that's on the higher end of what you'd expect to lose most lose about 3/4 of an inch.

@Boy68 you could be 179.5-180 in the afternoon, or almost 5'11. I think it is fine to claim 180 cm, which can actually be a tallish height. Maybe you drop down to 180 at night other days? As 3 cm is a big loss

I went with my Mum (4’11”) and niece Lucy (5’3”) to Asda in Castleford today. One of the female customers was in her twenties and she towered over me (5’7.25”) in her heels, I reckon she could have been about 6 foot in her heels and about 5’9” if she had have had nothing on her feet! A lot of men towered over me BUT a lot of men were shorter than me too so I felt ordinary as I so often do! I saw a lot of tall, average, and short women too!

@Bobby I know that I am not short . the reason why I am obsessing is not that I am short but because I have ocd and I also just love to talk about height . right now I am looking for more details about leonardo da vincis vitruvian man and what height da vinci found out to be ideal . and so far from my research it seems to be 182.88cm so 6 feet . I thought it was 5'10 because a poster here said it is but it seems that it is 6'0 which makes sense ...5'10 is a good height but a little too low to be perfect . I knew that 6'0 is ideal ...and if da vinci thought so then it is ideal . he had a formula based on some golden ratio measurement which also had to do with the universe or something ...very interesting and complicated stuff . but I have to add that the roman foot unit was different from modern foot measurement and if we take the roman foot mesurement then 5'10 was seen as the ideal height for a roman soldier for example

anyway the russian site about proportions that I linked also stated that 180-185cm is the ideal range

I find it very interesting thats why I am obsessing ....I know I am not short and that I have an okay height and I am grateful ...but I am "too short" for my taste because ideal is 182-183cm



@Jdubbz

I doubt that most men wear 3cm shoes . even 2cm seems to be the higher end no ? many guys just wear normal sneakers and from walking the whole time they get worn out even and get thinner . my brothers shoes give barely more than 1cm for example

and yes if a man is 179cm at night he will look a little taller than me . but not to a point where he will be above average . and if so then I am not short . I just dont understand the thinking pattern of some people here . saying 5'10 is above average and pretending at the same time that 5'9 is short OR as if it is in the same category as 5'7 instead of 5'10 . it is nonsense

"Most likely you misjudged their height. As I have said before, most swedes think I'm several inches shorter than I am, so I would guess those guys were really 5'8-5'9."

I know one of them was 170 cms because I asked him and the other was shorter so 168 cm might be true. I could also tell because I was a full head taller than them.
The tallest in my class was 194 cm and was a soccer keeper. He was probably top 10-15 tallest guy in school of roughly 500 guys.
I had several classmates in my high school class who were around 175 cms, among them one of my closest friends who according to himself is 173-174 cms. Another close friend of mine is 176 cms tall. Both ethnical swedes.
My boss at work is 176 cm according to himself (he mentioned it at coffee break a month ago for no real reason other than that he used his own height as reference for something in work) and the guy I am sharing office room with is shorter than him so probably around 173 cms. Both ethnical swedes/north europeans aswell.

"They were probably more accurate with their measurements before, and nowadays they just don't care and place the measurement tape where 5'7 or 6'3 seem to be on the walls according to their own visual perception."
If it's for medical purposes they are probably pretty accurate. I was measured with a real stadiometer when I was drafted and I don't know how others were measured but I find it really hard to believe it would differ with 6 full centimeters like you suggest. You starting to sound like someone who believes the Earth is flat and ask conspiracy like questions.

As a little anecdote the average for swedish hockey players is 183.5 cms including goalkeepers and 183 cms excluding them. And hockey is a physical sport so they would have an higher average height than the general population.

@Greg
It's around 180-180.5 cms according to consription measurements which I find trustworthy. And it's a little taller for self-reported heights according to official statistics bureau, at 180.5-181 cms. Add to that another half cm to get ethnical swedes height and you will get a height of around 180.5-181.5 cms.
Same as in Norway and Denmark...and also Iceland by the way.

Sweden: Click Here

The most common height is without a doubt somewhere around 180 cms give or take a cm.

@Sakz yeah about 5’11.5 could very well be a value that is realistic for young Dutch men. Immigrants bring down the average though for I think 6’0 is a bit far fetched wiki stretches it so it sounds more appealing to the public.

@Grayloth 5’11 is slightly above average in Sweden it’s probably like a decent 5’10 for a young Swedish guy on average.

@Grayloth "And by the way, I think I have never seen a guy that's a full head taller than a guy who's 6'1. IRL that is. I donno where you hang out."
At my train station, that's where I regularly see guys that are a full head taller than me, even sometimes more than that.

"The two shortest ethnical swedes in my class were probably around 5'6-5'7."
Most likely you misjudged their height. As I have said before, most swedes think I'm several inches shorter than I am, so I would guess those guys were really 5'8-5'9.

"You think they have measured wrong for 40 years at probably around 20 different locations's, in both Sweden and Denmark aswell as Norway?"
They were probably more accurate with their measurements before, and nowadays they just don't care and place the measurement tape where 5'7 or 6'3 seem to be on the walls according to their own visual perception.

@QM6'1QM I haven't really said that I have suicidal thoughts or that I'm crying because women are taller than me or because I meet guys who are 6'4. I have lots of friends who are 6'4. I don't know, maybe you are good looking and feel good about yourself because of that? I have a weird ugly looking face with weird hair in a country where your appearance matters A LOT, so I don't really have that thing going for me.

I'm Scandinavian, and I've never encountered a Dane, Swede, or Norwegian who downgraded his own height.

If anything it's quite the contrary.. the ones I've talked to inflated their height by a few centimeters at least lol. If that guy pegged you at 180 cm, it might be because you're not 185.5 cm as you think, or maybe you're maintaining an awful posture.

I'm 183 cm at my low, and I'm never considered short even by guys who are close to or over 2 meters.

Usually people peg me at 186-187 cm, and at "worst" I've been told I look to be around average range - not that that's bad at all, I'm just conveying my own anecdotes.

Although I dont see myself 100% in mrfunnyguys views I can agree that people can be ridiculously tall sometimes. Like a group of 16 year olds who tower over me or girls who are all slightly taller than me at the line in the school café. I'm 179 cm nighttime.

@C-mo:

I agree that there's not a huge difference between 5'9 and 5'10, but 5'10 guys and especially strong 5'10 can at times look above average or even tallish, whereas I rarely see that with 5'9 guys. Imo, 5'9 is very average looking, whereas 5'10 is mostly average looking with the potential to look tallish. I realize "average looking" is subjective and based on proportions.

Also, Greg and 179cm are ~3cm taller than you, so there'd absolutely be a difference between you guys irl. Strong 5'9 vs Strong 5'10/Weak 5'11 is quite noticeable. As far as footwear goes, most guys I've seen definitely wear shoes thicker than 2cm (probably 3cm on average for tennis shoes), so your shoes may not give you as much of an advantage as you thought. You might bring the overall difference down to ~2.5cm, but an inch is still visually noticeable.

@Canson:

Sorry for the super late reply. For some reason, my original comment didn't go through, and I didn't see that until now. Not only have I not grown in nearly a year, I either hit a bout of extreme lows recently or I've shrunk a couple mm. I'm measuring 6'5 1/2" or just a mm above at night these days whereas I used to consistently measure more towards the 6'5 2/3" zone last year. I've also had a lot of back pain recently, so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it. I'll probably see a doctor about that. If I'm really shrinking at 23 then the future doesn't bode well for me or my back, lol.

Difficult case. I think it depends from person and your friends and habits of people. I can believe that 25-30% of men are taller, but can't realize "6ft as average height in Sweden" or something more.
I'm just guy who doesn't care (note: i've has seen heights of people everyday) and few days ago i had playing basketball with 6'4 guy on the court. Feeling good myself without crying face and "suicidal thoughts" about height or even woman taller than 185+ :)
By the way, how much your weight ? 155-160 pounds ?!

"I assume you have been in Sweden since you have an opinion. "

Well, I live in Sweden and I was the second tallest in my high school class in Sweden, 11 years ago. The photographer who took our group photo for graduation said "What should I do with you Mr Tall guy?" refering to me and decided to place me and the other guy who was taller than me, at each end of the photo. The two shortest ethnical swedes in my class were probably around 5'6-5'7.
In university, out of 40 guys, I was probably around top 5 tallest. At 6'3.25". The shortest guy was again probably around 5'6.
And this was in Stockholm.

And by the way, I think I have never seen a guy that's a full head taller than a guy who's 6'1. IRL that is. I donno where you hang out.

"If 5'11.5 really was measured and not self-reported, the stadiometers or measuring tapes or whatever they used were probably not accurately placed on the walls, just like the measuring tapes in the stores."

It's not even 5'11.5. It's 5'11. And do you even hear yourself? You think they have measured wrong for 40 years at probably around 20 different locations's, in both Sweden and Denmark aswell as Norway? The average height for young men have been pretty consistent at around 5'11 in these countries since the early 1980s.

Celebheights is home to alot of guys with with weird height complex I have realized, but you seems to take the cake. I think you should just face it that you really are bad at judging other peoples height which in turn is probably based on that twisted height complex you seem to have.

@MrFunnyGuy

I don't know, mate. Ben is also Swedish and generally feels solid average as a Swede, so I don't know how you can feel short at 6'1 compared to Ben, who's 5'10.5. I think you have a selective bias and are focusing on men taller than you.

I admit, I almost laughed at your last sentence, 8/10 trolling my friend.
