Her height just can’t go beyond 169 cm it’s the maximum

I think that Melissa is south of 5'7" and more than likely her listed height! I wouldn't rule out 5'6,75" though, by any stretch of the imagination!
Ray said on 14/Mar/18
She is at the very least 5’6.75” or 5’7”. She looks very tall on Supergirl. I am sure that Grant Gustin wore lifts on the show.
Editor Rob
I think from watching 1 season of supergirl I'd have said very similar to chyler (their footwear varies a bit), so 169cm may well be a decent shout.

The media has her listed as 5'8" and on the show the cast says she's about 5'9". More media BS. Now if yall could just realize this is also true about Henry Cavill.....

Grant Gustin had her by 5.75"-6 inches. This would make Melissa 5'5.75"-5'6" or grant Gustin 6'-6'0.25".
Joshua said on 19/Oct/17
5’8 for sure
Slim said on 2/Oct/17
@Honest.

I guess in Europe 5'6.5"(169)/5'11.5"(181) isn't tall for women/men but in USA it's still tall.

But from where I'm from 6'0.5"(184) is when you start feeling tall.

5'6" looks correct, never looked tall, maybe tallish. Plenty of women 5'6" claim 5'8", a true 5'8" woman looks taller than her.
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
Rob, can we please give 5'6.75"? She looks quite tall.

She looks tall on Supergirl, even though Grant made her look so small, but he's a legit 6'2, and I will not budge on that, he's eye level with Stephen Amell, who is a legit 6'1. So I see her as being 5'8. You probably should have taken a picture with her Rob, then we would know, eyeballing a person's height is inaccurate, unless we have a scale to work from.

Ring any bells, bobby?

Next to Cole Sprouse and KJ Apa it's clear she isn't 5'7, let alone 5'8
Josh said on 1/Aug/17
In recent photos with her and Chris Wood who is just listed at 5'11.75 she looks this. At the most she's 5'6.75. Maybe 5'7 in the morning, but no more than that.
Joao said on 19/Jul/17
She's 171cm robb, i've met her
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jun/17
Evidence points to 169-170.
Mark said on 9/Jun/17
@Mackie Messer she's wearing heels...that's how her Supergirl costume was made. 5'6.25 does seem low though. I'd giver her at least 5'7 minimum

@Editor Rob,

Could you add a page for Chris Wood since he's in Supergirl?

@Editor Rob,

Would you mind adding a page for Chris Wood?

U probably already know that he appears in Supergirl recently and
last time u said he appeared "A comfortable 180 range".
Well considering he looks the same as Grant, looks over 5'11"
with Gyasi and Roerig (the guys u have met), I think he is
at least 181 maybe 182, but i cant see him anything lower than 180.

What's your thought on this?
RVD said on 22/Mar/17
@Editor Rob,

Could u add a page for Chris Wood now?
Josh said on 15/Feb/17
You think about adding Chris Wood Rob? He plays Mon-El on Supergirl. With her and the rest of the cast he can look 5'11.75-6'0. Around the same range as Gustin.
Importer said on 6/Feb/17
Episode one people were guessing height in heels most likely :)
Sonnecker said on 10/Jan/17
I can't see Melissa really under 170 cm, honestly....
jj said on 8/Dec/16
Rob, are you going to any events where you'd possibly be able to get a photo with Melissa? The next comic con perhaps?
Editor Rob: she is attending one in London next year, but I really don't know if I could go.
186cm said on 16/Nov/16
@Bobby your ridiculous keep convincing your self grant and amell are eye level to idk try and justify that you'd be eye level with amell even though grant and amell would be taller you. Amell a weak 6'1 and grants a weak 6ft at best I met grant at comic con and I was in 1.1 inch sneaker he was in .6-.7" flats and I was 2 inches taller for sure and I'm 6'1 at night. 6'2 for grant is a frickin joke puts me at 6'3.5 lol
Sammy Derrick said on 2/Nov/16
In the new supergirl series, episode one, one character says her height is 5.9 but I highly doubt that...
Supergirl in the comics is only 5'6.She's perfect for the role.

She's definitely at least this maybe 5'6.75 at the most. After seeing her with Grant Gustin and Tyler Hoechlin there is no way she is near the 5'8 she's listed all over the place. That would make Grant and Tyler 6'1/6'2. She's also a few inches shorter than Jeremy Jordan who's listed at 5'8.5 on here.
Adolfus said on 25/Jun/16
Well if, Calista Flockhart is 5'6", then Melissa Benoist is 5'8". Is Calista really 5'6"?

But rob, I've seen pictures with her and Jenna. She towers her. I still believe she's more than that.

Editor Rob: I never thought Melissa had anywhere near 7 inches on her in glee and I seen jenna up close when she was at an event as a 'girlfriend' of one of the vampire diaries guys, she looked her 5ft 1 claim. I'd be surprised if Benoist was anywhere near 5ft 8.

@2222wasabi said on 22/Apr/16
Melissa is completely taller than chyler. Jack w is right. Chyler's is practically on tip toe in those heels and melissa, not at all. In the pictures, look how close they are in height. If they were wearing similar heels, Melissa would be taller. Rob, I think she is more than 5'6.25. I don't think the listing is accurate. In supergirl, she and Jeremy Jordan are close in height also with 5'9 Jaimie Alexander. My guess her Google height 5'8 is accurate.
Editor Rob: I would never have said she looked anywhere near 7 inches taller than jenna ushkowitz on glee. I seen jenna up close and she is the height she claimed, 5ft 1...
@2222wasabi said on 21/Apr/16
Rob, if chyler's 5'6.5, mellisa must be 5'8 even 5'9. In a picture I saw, chyler was wearing heels and Melissa wearing flats. Chyler was an inch taller than her and if she took them off what does that make her, 5'6.25?
@2222wasabi said on 20/Apr/16
Fair point. In some pictures I see of Melissa and chyler, when wearing same shoes, she's a tad taller even without the boots. I clear she's 5'7-5'8.
Jack W said on 12/Apr/16
Silverhawk, Chyler's heels in those pics are absolutely ridiculous. Practically looks like she's on tiptoe. Apart from how uncomfortable those must have been to wear, her towering over Melissa in those contraptions doesn't tell us much. OTOH having now seen the Supergirl-Flash crossover (adorable!! Melissa and Grant should have their own show together!) Melissa was shorter relative to Grant than I thought she'd be in the scenes where she wasn't in costume. Starting to think the Supergirl boots add some serious inches, which would explain the Chloe Bennet thing too.
Jeff said on 9/Apr/16
Hey Rob, what do you think about the following dubsmash videos of Melissa with Clark Gregg and Chloe Bennet.

Chloe looks clearly taller than Melissa, although she's listed at 5'5.5 here. The question is, how much bigger Chloe's heels are than Melissa's.
Editor Rob: it's a tough clip to tell exactly how much and whether her heels are 2 inches bigger than whatever melissa is wearing.

I thought from watching the first season of agents of shield that Chloe was somewhere between 5ft 5 and 6 - I did find her claim of 5ft 6, although I still would guess her a bit under it. One thing is sure though, benoist isn't 5ft 8 range!

Chyler Leigh is actually taller than Melissa, and Rob is right with his listing. It could even be that Melissa is a tad shorter than 5'6. See the pictures below:

I imagine Chyler is a little shorter than her listing. Melissa's height seems right relative to everyone else in the cast (and relative to just-south-of-6' Grant Gustin in the promo pics and videos for this coming Monday's crossover ep). Also, I think Supergirl's boots give Melissa some significant extra height.
Jay said on 24/Mar/16
@ Dan, agreed. Melissa needs an upgrade.
Dan said on 18/Mar/16
The only time she looked shorter than 5'6.5" Chyler Leigh on Supergirl was in the pilot, when Leigh was in heels and Benoist was in socks. Either Leigh is less than 5'6" or Benoist is more than 5'6.25".
tony t. said on 17/Feb/16
Bahahahaha 5'8 on google.
Jack W said on 30/Dec/15
Absolutely adorable on Supergirl. Looks like she just got upgraded a quarter inch, Rob?
Sarah said on 24/Dec/15
Possibly 170? She didn't look that much shorter than Jeremy Joradn (Winn on "Supergirl"), but his 5'9" google height could be overstated, though.
Adolfus said on 27/Nov/15
LOL! She is widely known to be 5'8".
Julio said on 12/Nov/15
She's 5'5 she appeard with clhoe bennet a.k.a skye from agents of shield in a dubsmash video and she look noticible shorter then her...Really beautiful though..
Sam said on 2/Nov/15
Very pretty girl, could be in the 5'6"-5'7" range from Whiplash.
AM said on 16/Jul/15
In the same scene, another character speculated from the same low resolution image of 'Supergirl' that her hair was dark brown or black. The two characters were working for a newspaper and trying to impress their boss by giving her new info on the new hero from the first grainy image of her. Both were wrong.

In the new supergirl series, episode one, one character says her height is 5.9 but I highly doubt that...

Melissa Benoist looks 172 cm in Whiplash
[Editor Rob: maybe footwear/angles helped her, but in glee she looks noticeably shorter than that range.]
tara said on 19/Jan/15
she looked shorter than darren criss so i would think under 5-7

She looks pretty tall, about 5'7 to 5'8".
