Holly Marie Combs Height
5ft 1 ½ (156.2 cm)
American actress best known for playing Piper in tv series Charmed and as Ella Montgomery in Pretty Little Liars. Holly commented on her stature in AmericanBaby Magazine in April 2005, saying "I'm only 5'2"
and has mentioned that height on Twitter
on numerous occasions. In this photo Holly had about 1/3rd inch more footwear than me.

Rob is she short for an American woman?
she's just under 5ft 2 I'd guess and that is heading into short territory compared to the 5ft 3-4 average..

She looks 5’1.5”-.75” here.

So Holly is the smallest of the three 'Charmed' girls; that's good to know and check out if Freeview TV Channel E4 have the decency to show any more episodes of the girl-power series.
Oh, and a belated Happy Birthday to Holly for 8 days ago! 😋🎂
Five one and a half. 📏📏📏📏📏+1.5".

Lol at people who's saying that she's legit 5'2". She looks 5'1", considering that she has a bit more footwear than Rob, assuming 1/4" more.

Still another cute petite December baby (Dec.3),much like my 5' Trade Winds friend Annette,5'Cathy Rigby,5'Patty Duke,5'1" Susan Lucci,5'1" Barbara Mandrell,5'1" Sissy Spacek,5'3" Meredith Viera,my 5'2" friend Renee,5'3" Marisa Tomei,5'3" Rita Moreno,5'2" Alyssa Milano,and 5' high school sweetie Sandy Malufka. But being 5'1" can be troublesome for little Holly,since she doubtless has problems finding nice fitting dresses,pants,and shoes what don't make her look smaller than her 5'1",104 pound size. Happily,though,Holly doesn't appear to have a lot of problems buying clothes what are "just right" on her tiny Size 4 Petite body,but she's nice too.

I think 5'2" is a fair claim!
Bobby said on 15/Nov/17
Saying 5'2 is really being quite honest.
Mimi said on 22/Jun/17
She's my favorite alongside Alyssa Milano in Charmed
Sammy Derrick said on 3/Sep/16
Holly is a very beautiful woman and she has a very wholesome/everyday girl appearance...I mean chestnut brown hair,a wide smile and barely 5'2!
And yet I find her way more attractive than a playboy bunny.
@Editor Rob For some strange reason you two look like a picture perfect couple...
Me said on 5/Mar/15
No one has posted a comment so now i do: I would wanna be taller than Holly Marie Combs (I'm 155cm) and I'm pretty shore will be taller than her but in case I'll not grow anymore it makes me feel better that there are celebs who are as tall as me or shorter. I know it's lame but it does help...
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 21/Nov/13
Lorne, yea its harder to tell since their footwear varies from heels, sneakers, other flatter shoes etc. I've met Alyssa twice. The first time we had a standing picture and in heels/platform she was 5'4-5'4.5 range compared to me making her look below 5'2. 5'1.5 is prob right which makes Holly no more than 5'1.5. Shannen Doherty was slightly taller than both of them as well and shes 5'2 with Rob. And Alyssa is still amazing looking today! But her Charmed days was WOW incredible. Of course I was glad to have met her twice but I would have loved even more to have met her during Charmed especially the earlier seasons!
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 13/Nov/13
Lorne, you think she could be lower than 5'1.5? I've thought more 5'1-5'1.25 but 5'1.5 I think is right. She never looked taller than Milano and at times looked slightly less and Milano is 5'1.5
Alex 6ft 0 1/8
said on 8/Nov/13
Rob, yea I now agree with the 5'1.5 listing. With Doherty at 5'2 and Milano at 5'1.5 it makes sense. When you say slight footwear advantage did Holly have on bigger sneakers or a smaller heel/boot? What were you wearing?
[Editor Rob: like 1 inch sneakers against what looked a fraction over 1 inch boot she had.]
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 29/Oct/13
She always looked slightly shorter than Alyssa who is listed 5'1.5 on this site. I would go 5'1-5'1.25 for her.

"[Editor Rob: out of the 620 photos about 70 males are smaller than 5ft 8 and 180 females shorter than 5ft 8...
Incidentally, out of the 350ish male photos on this site nearly 120 of them are 6ft and above.]"
So 350-120 over 6ft & 70 under 5'8 = the remaining 160 or so males between 5'8-6ft, is that a fair assessment Rob?
[Editor Rob: the photo collection is quite biased compared to a random sample of 350 males you'd meet. The taller than 6ft group is growing bigger each year...
obviously taller men are of more interest so I've tried to ensure I've got as many of them at events as possible, plus there are some quite small men in the mix which you might not see in general public often.
Lorne said on 18/Jun/13
Rob, your being soft on Piper! Clearly more 5ft1.5 with the slight footwear advantage, and she was a tad shorter than Doherty, and never looked taller than Milano... 5ft1.75 at best. Maybe she froze you during the pic, and put in lifts???
said on 26/May/13
in this photo she looks smaller than alyssa milano who is 5'2 and whose seems smaller than shannen doherty who is in this site at 5'2
Elijah said on 14/May/13
Rob I don't think you look this small next to a 6'2" guy. So with her shoe advantage, what gives?
TheVerve181cm said on 17/Feb/13
5ft2, hair gives a 5ft3 impression.
voovoo said on 6/Jan/13
wow!!!!! only 6 inch difference?!
mar-sui said on 25/Dec/12
"She`s cute as hell!The best looking girl on charmed i`d say."
I agree. She has gradually become even better than Alyssa Milano.

runt said on 1/Dec/12
interesting...looking at those numbers...given the stereotype that thesbians are short, this very small sample size seems to fly in the face of that because the median on celebheights looks like it might be higher than the general public (different countries having different medians notwithstanding) for both males and females. Of course, small sample sizes always skew things.
said on 30/Nov/12
Even Rob can be taller than someone!
[Editor Rob: out of the 620 photos about 70 males are smaller than 5ft 8 and 180 females shorter than 5ft 8...
Incidentally, out of the 350ish male photos on this site nearly 120 of them are 6ft and above.]
Elijah said on 20/Nov/12
I didn't even recognise her! She certainly gained a lot of weight over the years...
Shaun said on 28/Sep/12
Yeah Alex could be more 5 ft 1 and change. Based on her eyes, nose and hair I'd say she has Greek blood in her. Nice looking.
said on 7/Sep/12
Rob, you look like a giant next to her, to not count the fact that she has a bit of footwear advantage.
Maybe 5'1.5-5'1.75 is closer, taller than 5'1 but not quite 5'2.
I'm curious, was she pleasant Rob?
[Editor Rob: yes with people are her auto table she was very friendly with them although I can't get much autos in last year myself...she looked tired in this photoshoot, although still managed to smile]
Mathew said on 6/Sep/12
156 cm possibly.
said on 29/Aug/12
@brandon ahh but what height are you?
shortest woman you have been with rob?
[Editor Rob: someone around holly's height]
Brandon said on 28/Aug/12
@thorterr - i've always felt the same. if i were into chicks, they'd generally be taller, around 5'9"-5'10", preferably.
guss said on 21/Aug/12
maybe 158, but not more
thorterr said on 19/Aug/12
5ft 1 defo,,im 6ft 2 and find really short women awkward and prefer taller ladies ,,am i a heightist?lol
said on 17/Aug/12
Rob, you say she had a slight footwear advantage. What kind of shoes was she wearing? You think she may be 5'1.5-5'1.75 since you said she didn't look far off 5'2?
[Editor Rob: I thought hers were like 1.25 range, mine an inch ramge so not much, and I thought 'taller than flat five one' when I saw her at first ]
Alex said on 16/Aug/12
Alyssa Milano is listed at 5'1.5 here and Holly at best was her height and looked slightly shorter though
said on 16/Aug/12
Even with the slight footwear advantage Rob has between 6 and 7 inches on her. Shes more 5'1 I think
[Editor Rob: I thought she was too tall to be 5ft 1 flat, but was she 5ft 2, well I give her it as she didn't look far off it]
said on 14/Aug/12
Hey Rob would you date a woman this size if you were single.
[Editor Rob: for me, height isn't so much a factor]
said on 14/Aug/12
"Slight more footwear" What type of shoes was she wearing? I always pegged her for 5'0"-5'1". You look like a giant next to her I agree with another poster.
[Editor Rob: not more than a 1/4 inch]
satchy said on 13/Aug/12
Rob looks like a giant compared to her. 5ft 1.5 prob
Heather said on 10/Jun/12
I met Holly just this past year. Yes I knew all of the very powerful, magical Charmed Ones were not that tall but Holly is defiantly the most beautiful, talented, amazing woman there could ever be in this world! Much love to Holly Marie Combs
Phil said on 29/Nov/11
Yeah. Of all the Charmed Ones, Holly was the cutest. And the sexiest. And the most beautiful.
gregory lehmann said on 13/May/11
All the "Charmed" girls were short,but Holly was the cutest.
C-Note said on 27/Oct/10
Alyssa was on "Who's the Boss?"
Alex said on 24/Apr/09
Now that I met Alyssa who I put at 5'1-5'1.5, Holly is def no more than 5'1.
Dickie V said on 13/Feb/09
She seems to be the smallest of the three to me. 5 foot .5 to 5 foot 1.
Alex said on 1/Feb/09
Phil, yea each to their own opinion. I've always thought Alyssa was hands down the best but thats me.
You're right how sometimes each appears to be the tallest.
Phil said on 29/Jan/09
The 3 Charmed ones always seem to wear differnt hieght shoes, cuz all of them seem to be the tallest at different times.
And Alex, I dissagree with you about one thing - I think Holly is the most beautiful of all The Charmed Ones.
Anonymous said on 2/Jan/09
that amazes me the girls didn't look that short on charmed any of them (Milano Combs Doherty or Mcgowan) it just makes me think how tall some of the guys where cause the didn't really tower over them like giants
Da Man said on 11/Dec/08
Holly was really very attractive in the first few seasons of Charmed, she put on some weight throughout the series.
Both Alyssa and Rose are pretty well smokin' though.
Alex said on 6/Nov/08
And Holly isn't a bad looking girl but shes the least attractive out of the Charmed girls though. At least in my opinion.
Anonymous said on 3/Nov/08
Why not - trust me. As an actress, you have to pad your height - it's just politics unfortunately.
Alex said on 1/Nov/08
The 5'0-5'2 range is tough to tell the difference from especially on TV so thats how someone can inflat their height. Someone 5'1 can easily pass for 5'2.
why not said on 1/Nov/08
Alex, Why would a short woman pad her height by a couple of inches? She could still be an actress at a lesser height. It isn't as though someone of this stature would attempt to become a supermodel at 5 ft. 0 or 5 ft. 2. She would still look the same height regardless of padding or not padding.
I just don't see the reason unless involved with something that even the slightest change in height would make a difference.
As a short woman myself, I can tell you that many of us would like to be taller but we are what we are and comfortable with it.
I believe she is 5 ft. 2ish, maybe slightly less yet probably not a full inch or so.
Alex said on 31/Oct/08
Its also kinda common for girls who are 4'11-5'1 to claim 5'2. I know a couple girls who are 5'0-5'1 and claim 5'2. Then you'll have legit 5'2 girls claiming 5'4 or at least 5'3.
Heightfan said on 31/Oct/08
Yup, sure does. Shannon at 5'2" is right on.
Alex said on 30/Oct/08
Heightfan, that then puts Shannen at no more than 5'2 as well. Brian Krause is listed at 5'10 on this site which I think is bang on. He can appear as a taller guy due to being with short girls on the show.
Heightfan said on 26/Oct/08
Alex, great call. In my fervor for downgrading the Charmed Shories I have argued Holly to be a under 5 foot tall, but now I think 5'0"-5'1/2" is right on with Alyssa being 5'1"
Alex said on 25/Oct/08
Seeing her more on TV I doubt she even hits 5'1 in her barefeet. Alyssa Milano is 5'1 at most and she's slightly taller than Holly. Holly may def be 5'0-5'0 1/2. I wouldn't say under 5'0 though, not that short.
Realme2008 said on 29/May/08
3 inch heels are not exact, and rarely give you the full three inches. That is pretty much true for almost all heels by the way.
Hollyfan said on 29/May/08
Holly is 5'2" because as Lisa says below when she wears 3" heels she is 5'5". On Charmed Alyssa wears higher heels which makes her appear taller than Holly because it's rare to see Holly in heels.
Rachael MD said on 29/Jan/08
i reckon that Holly is about 5" because i know her and shannen,alyssa and partly rose,and she is truly tiny and im 5"2 @ 14
Lisa said on 17/Dec/07
I once heard her say she was 5'5 in 3" heels so I believe she is 5'2"
Austrian said on 30/Aug/07
"Holly is the same height as me and I would be willing to bet that there is nothing that will hold her back from doing what she wants especially her height...No matter what!!!"
well, i have my doubts shes ever gonna make it into the NBA
Anonymous said on 28/Aug/07
It doesn't matter how tall you are I'm 5'2" and there is nothing that I can't do and believe it or not I can do them better then tall people...Holly is the same height as me and I would be willing to bet that there is nothing that will hold her back from doing what she wants especially her height...No matter what!!!
Steph said on 15/May/07
Alyssa appears taller but really she just wears higher heals.
Alex said on 16/Dec/06
Rob, do you think its time for a downgrade for Holly? You can clearly tell she's at most the same height as Alyssa really looks 1/2 shorter. You have Alyssa at 5'1.5 so Holly should be listed at 5'1.5 at the most.
Alex said on 19/Nov/06
Either Holly has to be bought down or Alyssa needs to be bought up. Alyssa isn't shorter than Holly. Either they're the same height or Alyssa is 1/2 inch taller.
Alex said on 15/Nov/06
I believe its possibly Holly could only be 5'1.5 but her under 5'1 seems too short. She's short but not that short. At times her and Alyssa can appear exactly the same height and sometimes Alyssa appears just a bit taller like 1/2 inch.
Alex said on 11/Nov/06
I do think she is 5'2, but might be as short as 5'1.5. And Holly shouldn't be listed more than Alyssa. They are both the same height and sometimes Alyssa appears a smidge taller than her. Some people just like downgraded some celebs. I find it hard to believe Holly under 5'1.5.
Like I've said on a few other pages my current estimates for the charmed girls are.
Holly fan said on 6/Sep/06
I agree with u heightfan because althought they always say that holly is taller bass noo alyssa is because if you watch the last epi of season 8 youll see the difference too !! and it shows trust mee :P!
heightfan said on 11/Aug/06
Haylie, I respectfully disagree. IMO Alyssa is slightly taller than Holly. In the "Brain Drain" episode all three girls are wearing sneaks and there are good comparison shots that show Alyssa is about an inch taller than Holly and Rose is about 2 inches taller than Alyssa.
Haylie said on 15/Jul/06
If you have Alyssa at 5'1.5 then holly should be that too as they are the same height :-)
heightfan said on 19/Mar/06
Do not forget to take into account the co-stars footwear as compared to the Charmed Ones high heels that are normally concealed with pants. In the current season I have actually noticed Kaley Cuoco barefoot in some of her close-ups with Holly and Alyssa, in all others she wears flats.
Jessica said on 17/Mar/06
Sorry I meant taller and must have said smaller..... ooops I think Rose is 5'4" but if you watch Charmed especially in the scenes where they are in pjs and bare feet you will see Doherty isn't really even an inch taller I would give her 5'3" at most, I think Alyssa and Holly are about the same height give or take a cm or two
UNK said on 16/Mar/06
Jessica what are oyu talking about? McGowan is taller not smaller than the other two... and Doherty was slightly taller than Combs and Milano. Combs is the shortest one, but they are all on the shorter side.
phil said on 14/Mar/06
all 3 charmed girls are not so tall.
i believe that only shannen doherty from the first episodes was a little taller than the others.
175cm17andgrowing said on 2/Mar/06
I didn't know she's that small... always thought she'd be taller... she's just a little taller than my grandma... means Brian Krause is also not that tall...
So... I'd have guessed her at 5'6''.
heightfan said on 19/Jan/06
After seeing Rose next to Kelly Ripa, I am requesting a big downgrade for the clearly shortest of the Charmed shortees.(see post for Rose) Before seeing Rose next to Kelly I put her in the 5 foot range, now I think that would be a very generous listing.
lalaine said on 20/Dec/05
sorry bout the blank 1 i sent b4 here is a pic of holly that definetly show her shortness i no she was younger here but she wouldnt have grown any more
hope it works
