@ Sandy Cowell - The reason why I made my original comment is because I knew that Jim had a girl dog called Kevin! I find it amazing that your Dad and Jim both named animals Kevin!

Hi Rob!

Since Sunday night, I haven't been very well. I have a nasty headache which I can't shake off, and I was trembling that night and have a temperature. Then the following day my TV packed up, 😭 so now when I am actually up, it's either music or nothing. I don't like sitting around without a background noise! I shall try my best to squeeze out some comments, and I'm determined to get back to Bobby today.

Manelia is 14 months old today and she still looks like a kitten, but she's a bolshy little cat, and starts on the others. Mind you, she is scared of Ulercy because he's so huge!

Our little Iberow died last Wednesday, a week ago. My brother told me when I got up. I'd have preferred to have been able to have comforted her in her final moments.

All the very best to you and Jenny,

Sandy XX
Editor Rob
That's a shame to hear you have been having a tough time, I hope you feel better soon, and 14 months seems to have went by quickly, I remember you mentioning manelia and it wasn't that long ago when I heard the name, at least it doesn't feel that long!

Hi Rob just obsessed with my height on worst surface i being measured 178.6 but on a good surface 179.2-179.3 so what height i claim plz reply
Editor Rob
It's ok to just round to 179 until you find a really flat surface.

Rob, how tall was King George VI? Besides Prince Philip, Churchill, and Harry Truman, I’d say he looked to be in the 5ft 8-8.5 range.

Might not have been that far off 5ft 9

@Tunman
Actually it looks like that white hair somehow disappeared in the last days...maybe it was stress related or it just fell off.
My mother had her first white hair at 18 and my grandmother had tons of white hair by 30, so yeah, I won't be very lucky in this aspect anyway (also considering my hair is blondish, so more prone to this type of issue, I guess?).
But yeah, I do claim 193 cm now...a week ago I've been guessed at over 2 meters (again), and generally everybody inflates by like 3-6 cm, like this guy that was about 1 inch shorter than me that claimed 196 cm, so yeah...

I also noticed this in some cases.

Mostly in men starting at 6'1-6'2. My friend who claims 6'3 but probably 6'2ish has some gray hairs and aged a bit faster.

The hair loss is caused by higher testosterone (specifically DHT type of it) which accounts for body hair as well. possibly this is linked to the height increase as well from teenage years. Too much testosterone will fuse growth plates though.
Another common observation I noticed is these individuals are already close to adult height at 13-14.
My friend for instance was at least 6'0 when in 8th to 9th grade.

Obviously this depends on genes and specific environmental circumstances.

Buts it's always interesting to note.

@Editor Rob

Hey Rob,

Did you know the maximum height restriction for US military is 6'8?

I guess it makes sense not only as custom uniforms would be needed but for health and practicality reasons.

For the Marines it's 6'6. I think average height or a bit under in the military is a plus compared to too short or too tall.

Though I think even people 6'8+ (though not many anyway) should still have chance to be a guard or do desk work maybe not combat.

Editor Rob
I never knew that...some jobs need to require height ranges or minimum/maximums, like air hostess.

What's interesting is the UK abandoned height for Police - I see quite a few police officers (male) shorter than myself.

Hi Rob umm what exactly time one person measure accurate height??

There is no agreed consensus - but personally I feel giving a lunchtime height is fair enough.

Tunman said on 14/Jul/19
@Myself
Technically you can call yourself 193cm if you're 192,5-6 at your low.Btw even that height is very tall.To have aging signs that early is probably more detestable though.I knew a guy back in 2008 who was few days shy of 22 and already bald,except for some white and grey hair on both sides,funnily he was also in that 6'4 range give or take few mms.Easily looking 35+at that age I swear I almost looked like his child despite being only 2 years younger(I had only thin facial hair back then).

@ Rob - It's one taste I don't want to repeat, but it was infinitely better than using Deep Heat!

We have loads of foxes round our way too, and if it wasn't for the cats, I'd conduct a few experiments with plastic toys to find just how alluring they find them. I have plenty of spare dolls which I don't display anymore, because now I only like the collector variety - for adults. Having said that, I would love to find a children's home which accepts them, but I'm sure I could spare one for the foxes, if I could be sure that they wouldn't attack or frighten the cats, but I can't, so that's simply not going to happen, unless I'm round my Dad's. (He no longer has any cats). The naughty little canines used to enjoy tearing our shoes to smithereens, so we had to stop keeping them in the porch, and then they'd leave smelly souvenirs behind to boot! Yes, the pun was intentional. Boots were their favourites - my boots to be precise! 😣

Since 17 I had continue growing but very slowly, I was 6ft2.5 at 17, 6ft2.75 at 18, 6ft3.25 at 19, 6ft3.5 at 21 and strangely it seems at 23 I had grown a little bit and Im now 6ft3.75-4. Out of bed height 194.8 nowdays. Last summer I remember measuring at 192cm exact or maybe a couple of mm above the mark

Thanks man, but I'm not really! My lowest is still barely closer to 193 than 192...4-5 millimeters are still 40-50% of a centimeter!
I know it's probably dumb and I should just be happy about my height, of which I am, but from time to time the fact that I can't reach that mark just brothers me a little...

Hey Rob!

I knew this would happen sooner or later and then finally last night....

Well, it was tooth-cleaning time and I grabbed hold of my tube of toothpaste and started cleaning away. Then I realised that I was using my antiseptic cream. It tasted revolting! Now I have taken it OUT of the bathroom - for good!

Wishing you, Jenny and everybody on Celebheights a very happy weekend.

PS That looks more like a FOX emoji! My Dad had a visitor fox 🦊 up until recently. He turned up to be fed at the same time every night; my Dad called him Kevin!
Editor Rob
That's not the kind of taste you want in your mouth 😁

Jenny is terribly upset about the Foxes around our bit - they stole 'Sammy the snake', who has been lying in wait for visitors outside our house for years. The previous object they liked to play with was an old barbie, the damn thing ended up headless and legless lying in the back garden. They must like plastic!

Rob, what do you think about ASAP Ferg height? he claimed as at some sites 5'11 but a lot shorter than Rocky. i think he is 5'7-5'8
Editor Rob
Yeah, 5ft 7.5 could be a possible range for him, with Winnie Harlow who is 173-4 range and not in that big a heel and worse posture, I think you can rule out the guy being over 5ft 8!

I suppose even a crack is painful so u would knnow if u messed your spine up right?

Fractured vertebrae can make you lose height.

He claimed 1.5 inches lost, which is quite a lot and seems more than you'd expect from a couple of fractures.
Tunman said on 11/Jul/19
Rob,not a height question but out of curiosity what's the hottest weather you ever witnessed in Scotland?I saw it was 19Β°C in Edinburgh Yesterday which is something that would never happen in Tunisia in July.I remember an exceptionally hot summer in 2009 where temperature reached 48Β°C(although the record is allegedly 55Β°C in southern Tunisia back to 1931).Also don't you find it annoying that it rains too often?You know I've nothing against rain but sometimes you would like to enjoy some evenings outside,right?
Editor Rob
For us 26-27 would be a very warm summer day. It would be very rare to hit 30 here. It does rain a fair bit, but you get periods of great weather too...just not often!
cmillzz said on 11/Jul/19
@Myself
come on, you’re only a few mm off 193cm at your lowest. I’d consider you pretty much a legit 193.
Tunman said on 11/Jul/19
@Andrea
although it's not the most professional measurements,probably most are within few mms if not correct.As long as you have a reliable device for measuring it's always fine,anyways much better than those electronic stadios which bring totally fake heights.I still wonder how they tested them if ever they did.
The problem is that once someone gets a machine measurement it's practically impossible to reasonably argue over the truth.Someone like G could have easily been 172-3 under one of them.
@Spainmen
72Kg is very thin for a 193cm but sometimes (rarely though)I see some dudes in that 6'3-4range who won't exceed 70-75kg.They just have naturally a thin built,probably like yours

Myself said on 9/Jul/19
@spainmen
Did you like stop growing for some time and then suddenly grew, or you just measure rarely? What height did you record before this one?
I've grown like 1.3 cm from 20 to 21, but now it seems like i haven't grown at all in 1 entire year...I may have had a 1 mm bonus about 4-5 months ago, but I'm not sure.
Now I'm 194.7-8 cm out of bed and about 192.7-8 at a low (while a resting sitting low is like 193.4-6), although I can go as low as 192.5-6 sometimes. I wish I just had another one of those little 3 mm bonuses...but I'm 22 too now, since yesterday! Getting older, white eyebrows appearing already and not gaining any height anymore! I'm doomed and I'll never be a legit 193 cm :(

Dickinson might have been 6ft range 20 years ago, a bit under that now...I am sure he referred to himself once as that height.
Lazar99 said on 9/Jul/19
Hi Rob, these are my measurments :
Out of bed :173cm
After 5-6 hours: 171.8cm
Before bed 171.5cm
What should I claim? 5'7.5" or 5'7.75?
Editor Rob
I'd say 5ft 7.5 if I had those stats, but also you could go with 'about/almost 5ft 8' if you wish.
Andrea said on 9/Jul/19
Here's an interesting clip where people get measured under a stadiometer: Click Here
It's funny that even before getting measured, some of them still "lie" about their height by a noticeable amount... I mean, from what I could understand, the first girl claims 181 (and she gets measured just under 178), the second girl 173 (and she gets measured 165-6!!!), the bald guy 166 (quite reasonable), the following guy 180 (and he actually gets measured almost 182!), the other guy 183 (and he gets measured a bit under 182 too), and the two presenters 177 and 170 (she gets measured 168).
Of course there's always room for error (seeing how sometimes the bar was pushed down), but still... The girl claiming 173 is laughable! I couldn't tell whether she was purposefully exaggerating and joking about that or not, but if she was being serious... LOL!
Editor Rob
I think the measurements were ok apart from bending the stadiometer for the 166 girl.

At least they actually got a stadiometer out for it, I wish some Uk/US shows would do similar ;)
spainmen192cm said on 8/Jul/19
Rob, I measured myself a couple of days ago, I found that Im now 194.8-9 out of bed (after 10 hour sleep) the day before I was 193.2 at 9:30 (in the night) during that day I only had 2 hour sleep but during the afternoon I sleep around 3 hours, from 5pm to 8pm

In Resume, Im around 6ft4 now, which is strange because im already 23 but it seems like during this year (September-July) I have grown a little bit. Considering I was 6ft2.75 at 18, 6ft3.25 at 19 6ft 3.5 at 21-22

There are some cases where guys at 23-25 have some final growth?

Phisically, I look quite slim for my height (72-73 kg) and younger than my real age, I eat what I want and I dont put kg. And my father is 6ft6 (maybe that has something in relation)
Editor Rob
Could have been a final portion of spine becoming longer...it is very rare to have any noticeable growth at 23.
Myself said on 6/Jul/19
@Rob
What do you think about taking some measurements of her and making her start a new postural routine (exercises + stretches + general posture correction) for some months, to see if she can regain her lost height? It would be an interesting experiment and you could upload it on YouTube to show that it's possible (or not, in case it didn't work).
I understand that maybe she doesn't care and isn't in a position where she can't change her bad habits so easily...but still, in case it's possible, it would be interesting! (And good for her health of course)
Editor Rob
I tried to help her with some basic techniques in the past, but it's getting into and sticking with a habit that can be a struggle for people.

Saying that, we have managed to keep up a daily short exercise and long walk routine, so that is one habit that has stuck...maybe I will try again in the future to see if we can do some basic stretches for her back.

Rob if i’m 175.6 in the morning and 173.6 at night, am i 5’8.5?

Also my feet measure at only a size 6 according to size charts even though I take a 9 and can barely fit into 7s, what size do you take rob?

Also any plans for kids big Rob, sorry if it’s personal. Don’t have to answer.

With those stats, it's not unreasonable to claim 5ft 8.5

Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 3/Jul/19
Yep I agree my difference is 1.8 cm from my after and before bed. My regular height right after bed is 177.4 cm and my highest 177.6 my lowest I ever had 175.5 cm (being 15 hours in my feet and doing heavy squats). I'm a solid 176 guy so my regular low before bed is 175.8 cm
Myself said on 5/Jul/19
@Rob
But Jenny's loss is due to the fact that her upper spine has become rounded in a bad posture due to muscles adapting, not due to disc height loss, right?
Editor Rob
Yeah it's upper spine/cervical curvature.

rob what weight you say is the start of skinny for a 5ft8 man?
Editor Rob
140 range will look quite slim, 130 will look rather thin on many 5ft 8 frames. As you know, muscle distribution could change how different 5 foot 8ers look
Matt99 said on 5/Jul/19
Rob I found that the seca 213 is tricky whilst freestanding with the bar, yesterday evening I kept getting undermeasured but I also tried the Frankfurt plane method, keeping my eyes as straight as possible instead of unintentionally raising them a little bit and keeping the bar as steady as possible and I get 176cm (wasn’t a straining day) on it and 175.9cm-176cm on my wall. This is why I think a wall measurement is more realiable as I think sometimes it can be a hit or miss at the doctors, it can be quite unlucky because it might not be installed properly at the base or it might not be read out properly because of eyelevel, like if a 5’5 doctor read out a legit 6’1 man he or she wouldn’t probably see the real number if they stood bare feet to read it. I know the stadiometer is supposed to be balanced against a wall but you never know at the doctors. When I measured my brother I said he was 184.5 using a wall and tape measure and he looked from his perspective and corrected me by an 1/8 and he was right in the end.
cmillzz said on 5/Jul/19
Rob, if going by absolute maximum morning height after a long sleep 20 seconds out of bed, and extreme low height, I almost feel as though the difference between the two is more than 2cm on average. Maybe even closer to 3cm possibly? But if just going by regular morning height and regular evening height, it’s probably closer to 2cm.
jayp said on 4/Jul/19
Hello rob and everybody if I’m 5ft9 175cm or some mms over 6-6.5 hours out of bed whilst just being at home not doing that much is it safe to call myself 5ft 9 or not
Editor Rob
6 hours is a fair time of day to go with a height claim, so even though you might fall under 5ft 9 a bit later in the day, for a good chunk you are around it
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 3/Jul/19
@Mr.Heighty. I forgot to tell you earlier in my post that differences between morning out of bed and night before the bed is less than inch (2.54cm) for sure. Mostly (0.75 in through 0.9 in) 1.7 cm to 2 cm,, differences I would say between morning and night depending on the activity and works and jobs you are doing throughout the day...
avi said on 3/Jul/19
@Editor Rob

I saw your reply about Jenny's small loss.

This is similar to me I think. 5'11.8 basically touching 6'0 maybe few yrs ago now 5'11.5 maybe 5'11.6 at low...

I sit most of day and lean forward looking at computer.

Would a .3-.4 of "loss" be possible?
Due to compression?

I started doing some stretches and sitting better when I can and will monitor over the next 6 months or so see if measure taller

Thanks!
Editor Rob
Her loss is more like a half inch in her 40's.

In Jenny's case, the loss is obvious looking at her upper back/neck from 10 years ago compared to last few years...and it really is down to craft work.

You may have lost 0.2 to 0.3 inch yourself, especially since you noted your measurements.
Trieza said on 3/Jul/19

Another question: As I haven't seen your wife Jenny's height lately on your youtube video, wondering whether she has lost mm of height from Jan 2018 when her height was 5ft 7 3/4 172.2cm or still same as from 2018 January. I do know womens do loose more height than men when they become older... been wanting to know if Jenny is still 5ft 7 3/4 or she's now at 5ft 7 half like 171.5cm ish or not... been wanting to know forawhile... I know you are still same from that time frame, hasn't even lost mm as of yet....
Editor Rob
I have not measured Jenny for a while. In fact, the stadiometer is gathering dust...but last time was many months ago and she was still pretty close to 7.75 so I think she's stabilised loss for the moment.

The nature of her craft work - which involves a lot of forward bending of spine/neck - means it is puts strain on the vertebrae.

Rob, I grew 0.5cm last year to this year and I am now 19 years old. How likely is it for me to grow 0.5cm-1cm again? I'm right now 186cm
Editor Rob
Any growth after 19 should be seen as a little bonus really, considering the vast majority are finished by then.
Mr.heighty said on 1/Jul/19
Ey big Rob! I've already measured myself 175.5 cm being 14 hours on my feet and I also had a heavy training workout at the gym so I think is a low or extra low. So I'm going to bed now at 175.5 cm what height do you think I can get right after bed and what height I can claim when they ask me? I always like to be honest
Editor Rob
It seems fair to go with 176cm as you are likely over 177cm out of bed.

Hey Rob, just asking this out of curiosity. Are Big Lewis and Big Adam (2 boys you measured their height couple months ago that was posted on your YouTube video) your family members? Sons of your brother? What about Gemma (Overweight Girl, you measured her height way back in 2015)? Are they all of your family? Sorry if I am asking non height related questions. Making me wondering as I recently enjoy watching your height related youtube videos.

Yeah, they are family relations, all cousins! Gemma went to a few conventions with us when she was 18-20.

Rob, is it just me or are most Celebheights posters above average height? I notice many are well above average height, but you don’t see too many that are below average or short. I guess this site just attracts more tall people? Don’t have a problem with it at all, was just curious.

Maybe if somebody is taller than average, they are more likely to mention a height?

But also bear in mind that a proportion of people may not be stating their actual height online.

@ Tall In The Saddle - 1985 and 28 and now they're pensioners! It's quite frightening how quickly time flies.

So Tony has driven Dustin Hoffman and Buzz Aldrin in his cab as well? That's amazing! It makes me contemplate getting a job as a London Cabbie, but I'm too much of a chicken to risk driving around in case I run anyone, human or animal, over. I do admire people who drive though because it's something I can't do. Anything I can do, I think of as a piece of you-know-what. It's the way I was made, I suppose. I'm not in awe of people who are head and shoulders taller than me, because nobody can help his or her height. It's how you cope with it that matters, and how you tackle life's challenges. Tony Walker is gutsy to do the job he does as a cab driver. You never know who you're going to pick up! It could be Hannibal Lector even, oh it was, in the considerably more presentable package of Anthony Hopkins! It's good to know he's a thoroughly nice fellow; you need strength of personality to cope well with fame.

I will certainly be having a look at the U-Tube backlog of the series in discussion. It won't be totally new to me, but in order to be able to relate to the characters featured, it would be nice to see them growing up!

Cheers Tall In The Saddle!

If the person has flat hair, and you feel your eyes are a bit above their head, then you might be between 5-6 inches taller.

If you were looking at the start of their hairline you could be at least 3 inches taller.

Rob, you're brilliant in estimate height. My uncle peak use to get 6'3.5" from his doctor in the morning and he aware that he was more a legit 6'3.25" but claim 6'3 all the time and nowaday he develope some hunches he can look to be strong 6'2 plus range but he still manage to keep up posture he is closer to 6'3 when standing straight really not shorter than Chris Hemsworth in person. Last year i heard he had a afternoon physical which get 190.2cm from a back face wall measurement and at age 62 which is lucky he only lost a 3/8th inches.
Editor Rob
With older people, sometimes it can be hard telling if their posture is poor or if they have kyphosis and they are standing well, but their upper back/neck has more curvature.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jun/19
@ Nik - When my German Grandmother's dog, Putzi, piddled on the carpet, she got such a telling off that she whimpered. My Mum stood up for her, saying that she was long overdue a walk. I was crying! I think I was eight. Putzi was a white dog with tanned ears, and she looked like she was wearing ponytails. She had a stumpy little tail which wagged like lightning, and when we opened chocolate bars, which my Grandmother would buy for us when she was out shopping, Putzi knew it, and could hear the packets open on the other end of the flat and would come running! And it was a BIG flat!

I would feed her large portions of my dinner, but she didn't like boiled potatoes, which was a shame as neither did I!

I only ever tell my cats off for over-enthusiastic fighting. Other than that, they don't ever get scolded for anything. Manelia, tiny as she is, loves fighting, which can endanger her, so I have to keep her occupied with toys. Jim bought her a toy on a string and she broke the string off. She still plays with it though. I have ordered her a new one.

I'm watching 'The Chase' right now. Someone didn't know that the first man God breathed life into was Adam! She said Moses. Arghhhh NO! Then there has just been a question as to who played Richard the Fourth in 'Blackadder', and the guy said Brian Blessed. It was, of course, Peter Cook. Richard the Fourth indeed! There was no such King! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The last Richard, Richard the Third, was slain at the Battle of Bosworth Field, thereafter being succeeded by Henry the Seventh, the first Tudor King, in 1485. No, Dickie-boy didn't fair very well at all and now if you call someone a Richard, it's a term of abuse! (Richard the Third, which rhymes with ⬆️urd!πŸ’©) A Richard the Lionheart is cockney rhyming slang for fart! He was Richard the First, by the way.

That's all for now! 'Emmerdale' has just started.....

He seems like he could be easily over 6ft 2 there, but then he has more shoes, a bit nearer, though older age...

Rob I shaved my head completely bald today, you certainly wouldn't over measure yourself if you don't have any hair right?
Editor Rob
Unless you go on your tip toes or don't make the bar touch your head, I think you are safely recording an accurate height!
Nik said on 24/Jun/19
@ Sandy Cowell - You are so right, dogs react to the tone of people's voices too! Maybe cats and dogs don't pick up on words that are hidden within other words and it's not just words that they take notice of when you speak to them, it's the tone of your voice and how you say different words! I can imagine that they would respond differently if you said "Nip!" in a very excited voice to how they would if you said it in an angry voice, you will sound excited when you say "Nip!" and because of that your cats will get excited too! I bet that repeating the word "Nip!" several times will get an even more positive response from them too! I sometimes think with animals that they would get excited about having any treat or a certain treat if you said any word in the right way, particularly if they knew that a treat was in close proximity to them!
Through my experience I can tell you that dogs sulk a lot when they are told off, also they often stop doing the thing they are told off about for a short period of time before going back to doing the same thing again, and again!

Cheers Sandy!

Tony has also driven the likes of Buzz Aldrin and Dustin Hoffman to name another 2 - maybe they go out of their way to book the most famous London Cabbie, Lol.

Hey Rob. I wanted to know what is the most perfect/ideal height for a man and a woman in your opinion?and what is the ideal height gap between couples?please answer
Editor Rob
Nature has given men an overall advantage of 4-6 inches over women, which I'm sure many men like...there are still a significant proportion of women who also prefer having a man at least several inches taller than themselves.
Nik123 said on 23/Jun/19
Yo Rob, what are your thoughts on this. Growing up I was always tall/above average for my age. My dad side of the family is kind of tall and I looked like him. Yet I barely grew during puberty. I stopped growing at 14/15 at 5'8. This height I get measured at doctor. I know it could be genes but could it have been all the adderall I took from 14 onwards. The doc even said I'd probably be around 5'11/6.
Editor Rob
There are factors that could inhibit growth, but time spent worrying about it in adulthood is wasted.
Matt99 said on 23/Jun/19
Rob how much can hair add whilst measuring? Thick hair for example. Does it still count for height?
Editor Rob
Hair can vary tremendously from a very short 1/8th to 1/4 style to 4-5 inches worth.

Of course when measuring we should flatten it completely.
SharpshooterTom said on 23/Jun/19
Hi Rob,

I'm interested in seeing if its possible I can marginally increase my height without resorting to LL surgery.

I'm just wondering, have you ever come across this site? Click Here

I don't think the site is a scam as he's not selling any products rather claiming by the use of science, mainly dietary changes, supplements, inversion tables, ankle weights and stretching exercises that people can increase their height by 1-2cm.

I've read a study about Glucosamine adding 2-4mm to a persons height over an 8 week period. I'm just wondering if you think its possible for a person to add 1 or 2cm naturally? (even if its only on a temporary basis)

I'm 173cm in the morning, 172cm after 3/4 hours and then a very gradual decrease finishing at 171.5cm before I go to bed.

If I can add even half a cm or more, finishing at say 172cm, I would be delighted. If I can feel I'm not living a lie by claiming nearly 5'8 or 5'8 outright rather than uttering the words 5'7.5 that would be great. We're only talking small amounts here obviously, but when you're on the cusp of what is considered short and the start of average then I guess every cm counts.
Editor Rob
I think there is room for a fraction improvement in discs through exercise, but 1-2 inches if fairytale stuff. I suppose traction and inversion methods are replicating to a lesser extent the effects you have in space, so long-term and 1-2 hours a day inversion might give you a temporary boost more than a small fraction.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jun/19
@ Tall In The Saddle - What a great picture of a legendary actor with Tony Walker, who was lucky enough to pick him up while working as a cab driver.

Anthony Hopkins looks positively King- Sized in comparison to Tony! I have only watched a couple of editions of the show, but you have definitely attracted my interest to watch more.

I wish I'd watched them since childhood now. Perhaps it'll be possible to catch early programmes from the 60's and 70's on U-Tube. Whoever had this idea must have had a moment of sheer inspiration. It sounds utterly heartwarming!

Cheers Tall In The Saddle!
Sandy xx πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
Tall In The Saddle said on 22/Jun/19
Thanks Rob - yeah, Tony is quite a bit shorter than Hopkins who is no more than 5'8" these days and possibly even less. Understood Tony was small but never realised he was around 4'11"to 5 feet - probably due to his having a transcending 10 foot persona. Lol.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jun/19
@ Nik - I think it's more the way I say it! They wouldn't understand what a turnip is and would ignore the word nippy altogether. Yes, cats react to the tone of voice. They don't like to get told off when they're naughty and attack each other. Then I say, "Stop it!" on the top of my voice. Sometimes they do, but other times they just think "*** you!"

I used to say something rather stronger, but they have kids next door now!

It can definitely be a good idea to find out a bit more about your father's childhood and/or adolescence, especially if he's not the throw away files type of person. His home or room is practically an archive!

Not as much from that era, but really I can listen to a pretty wide variety...

Rob being on my feet 7 hours I measured 176 cm and just before going bed I'm 175.7 cm. Do you think I'm a 176 guy or a slid one? Would you list my self at 5'9 1/4? Some days I can hold 175.9 cm before bed and about 176.3 during the evening.
Editor Rob
I think if you looked 5ft 9 and change in person you'd get listed it...but you might look a bit taller or shorter.
When you are closer in height, sometimes it becomes easier to tell say 5ft 9 from 5ft 9.5 or 5ft 10 people.

Ahh Rob... I see. An undercut with long hair while not a mullet is somewhat similar to it. I agree with you that short hairstyles are easier to manage. I myself have consistently had short hair for about 9 years now. No complaints.

My next question is:
I heard that newsboys (boys hawking newspapers in the streets) were around in the 1950s. Here is an example: Click Here

Your father was of age at the time I think. Was he ever a newsboy?
Editor Rob
I am not sure what jobs he had when young, I should ask him a bit more and try to document some stuff - he isn't one to throw stuff away as he has loads of papers, letters etc from his life he has kept.

@Rob,
If the tallest person in your family is 5'10", and you got his gene but your parents are short. Can you make it to 6'0"?
Myself said on 16/Jun/19
Rob, It seems like Intervertebral discs may really be able to adapt to stress and become a little thicker with increased activity like jogging, and running. At least that is what this interesting study claims: Click Here
I read it partially and quickly, but from what I gathered the discs seem to be able to hypertrophy similarly to muscles, increasing by an average of 0.2 mm (check summary pics with the stats, if too lazy to read everything)... meaning that if this is true you may be able to get something roughly about 4.6 mm of additional height, if we consider the 0.2 mm bonus for each of the 23 discs.
Muscles of runners and sedentary subjects were pretty much the same in size, and also it seems like disc growth plateaus at a certain point, meaning that not necessarily more activity equals more disc size; in fact enough activity allows the disc to reach its maximum potential.

Quite interesting and motivating!
Editor Rob
Yeah, the discs might be able to improve with some activities which are lower impact. Fast walking seems a good idea for those who can't run!
Jacky Huynh said on 16/Jun/19
Hey Rob, it's been a while since we last talked. As I'm typing this, it's Father's Day! Hope you were able to spend at least some time with your father.

As weird as it may seem, the question I have for you is: Mullets were popular in Europe and North America from the 1980s to the mid 1990s. You were of age back then. Did you ever have a mullet?
Editor Rob
I never had a mullet, but I did have longer hair in early to mid 90's, one time having an undercut and long hair, then growing it into a small ponytail!

I doubt I'd ever grow long hair again, it's easier managing a short style.
khaled taban said on 16/Jun/19
Hi Rob, when I was 1.5 y/o (18months) my height was measured as 87cm and doctor told my mother that I will be 5'11" or 6'0", now I am 5'9"at age 20.
My parents are pretty short(dad 5'5", mom 5'2"), Do you think that has affected my chances of growing to 5'11 or 6'0?
Editor Rob
I think it is a very rough range doctor's can predict...the fact you managed 5ft 9 given your parents height is more than you'd expect...
Nik said on 16/Jun/19
@ cmillzz - I don't find it unusual to feel above average in England! I usually feel close to average range!
Sakz said on 15/Jun/19
@James Brett 172cm That's probably because being skinny can give the illusion of being taller than you actually are, therefore can be considered an advantage or more ideal.
cmillzz said on 15/Jun/19
Rob, have you ever been in a situation where you felt above average height-wise? I don’t think it’s unfathomable that a strong 5’8 guy can feel above average in some situations.
Editor Rob
If I observe height, sometimes there are pockets in which you could find yourself feeling above average, but the vast majority of time 5ft 8 in the UK anyway is on lower end of average range.
Mambo said on 15/Jun/19
Rob, is it common for really skinny guys to be perceived 1-2 inches taller than their actual height?
Editor Rob
Some people can seem taller due to factors like eyelevel, head size, shoulder height, torso/leg ratio, clothing, posture, confidence and looks.
Ellis 6'8 said on 14/Jun/19
@Rob: How much taller would a person be, if a persons eye level is at the other persons chin, the lower part not near the lip? My dad is 6'3 and I took a picture with him, his eye level was at the lower part of my chin.
Editor Rob
Usually for a tall guy you'd expect a 6ft 3 man to be looking at near end of chin of the taller 6ft 8 man.
cmillzz said on 14/Jun/19
@James
what? where did you hear that? It’s usually the opposite. Tall guys don’t look as good if skinny, they tend to have that lanky look. If you’re tall and well built though, then that’s ideal.
Canson said on 14/Jun/19
@Cmillz: just about. The lowest I’ve ever measured is 193.1. Typically my extreme low is 193.2 when I try it, however. I’ve seen maybe 1/4” below the normal low as typical extreme lows
cmillzz said on 13/Jun/19
@Canson
Didn’t you say before that you can get down to 6’4 flat at an extreme low?
cmillzz said on 13/Jun/19
Rob, I actually do believe that hydration levels can affect your height to a somewhat significant degree. Could it be as much as a half cm possibly? I notice on some days, if I’m dehydrated, I reach my low height faster, and may even reach an extreme low. And on days where I’m well hydrated, I might not even get down to my low.
Editor Rob
If you barely drink and you are exerting a lot, your body might be using some water content from soft tissues and knock those extra couple of mm off your usual low.

I don't advise being dehydrated though! Look after your body.

@Editor Rob

Hey Rob
I was looking over my growth chart that luckily my parents saved and it has my height each year I went to pediatrician (after 18-20 area most doctors don't measure height from my experience). It goes up to 18 years old when I was 5'10.

I see that at 2 years old I was 36.75 inches.
If you double that it is 6'1.5 area.

Do you believe in that indicator of doubling a child's height at 2 years old predicts adult height?

It's off by almost 2 inches for me.

Thanks!
Editor Rob
I have read that figure before about doubling, but I think there are a few formulas that are used to get a rough range.
John Candis said on 13/Jun/19
Rob, have I big head, if I'm 5'7 (171 cm) and my head is as big as yours?
Editor Rob
Yes, if it measured say 9.5 inch to chin tip, then for 5ft 7-8 it's bigger than average...if it were full 10 inch it would be extremely big for that range. 8.5 would be extremely small, but not for a women's head, which on average is a bit smaller, especially from eye-chin range.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jun/19
@ Rob - Oh, it's so lovely that you and Jenny feed your visitor cats and I don't blame you for not feeding them Dreamies! I think it must be a couple of years ago that I read a write-up by an Amazon customer that Dreamies are laced with an addictive substance and to avoid feeding them to your cats, and if you have been, they need 'weaning off'! I don't believe that, but I do notice that, when the cats are without their reward food, they become short tempered, growling at each other and socking their family members round the chops!

I often buy Felix treats instead, and some of my lot actually prefer them. Erramius the White even goes off Dreamies from time to time, so addictive they are NOT! I think, like dogs, they like the idea of a reward system, and the affection that comes with it...

Rob here is a pic of my floor that I usually measure on, I always measure front facing as it’s more comfortable for my lower back, how many mm would you think that’s undermeasuring me? The bubble is pulling towards the wall by the way. The wall itself is pretty much straight. With the seca however I get the same measurement with my wall measurement, without using the stabiliser as I can’t find it so I might be putting it at a slight angle. I’m starting to think I’m undermeasuring just shy off an 1/8 idk.

It's not a huge slope, a small one that could effect a couple of mm.

Rob I have heard some debate on the internet that you can only pull of looking good/acceptable being skinny if your tall.


What’s your opinion on that?
Editor Rob

The taller you are the easier it can be to appear slender/skinny.

You could have 2 people 6 inches apart with roughly same type of physique, but the taller person to most people will appear more skinny/slender.

Actually maybe a good example is Xena - Lucy Lawless over 5ft 9 and Renee O'Connor barely 5ft 4.

Renee never seemed 'skinny' even though if you watch season 4-5 she has a very flat stomach, most women would kill for that!.

When Lucy walks about, her leg length and body means she appears far more slinky at times, whilst Renee with shorter legs and more compact stride seems more chunky.

Editor Rob
It could be hydration levels being slightly better in discs, but I think it's too small to tell if that is growth (or a very late stage of final growth). If it was 5mm difference, that's becoming significant.

Rob, do you think you’d ever dip below 5’8 1/8 on a very strenuous day of physical work? I’ve always been under the impression that you never actually do dip below 5’8 1/8.
Editor Rob
Not standing tall I would measure 5ft 8 flat, but If I got badly dehydrated I might struggle to get over 5ft 8.

I don't have endurance for a full football match, but I'm sure that kind of physical activity might get me to no more than 5ft 8.

@Editor Rob

I have a question: when standing in front of a mirror, Would holding a tape measure with your toe with the tape measure being in front of your shoulder as opposed to being directly next to you cause you to measure slightly under and favor the tape measure since the tape measure is more in front your body?
This could also cause you not to stand as straight as well maybe?
I guess it almost like an object being in front of you it may make the object look taller than it is?

Sorry if that doesn't make entire sense it's hard to articulate it.

Thanks!
Editor Rob
Remember with a tape measure your eyes are looking at a tape in front of you, but the tape being in front of you means it's not on the same plane as the highest point of your head. We are talking a fraction difference, but because of most people having hair, if that is a 1/4 to 1/2 inch, it can end up being the person gets a reasonable estimate of their height.

Hey Rob,

I have always interested been interested in height. I visited this sight a couple times and but I want to ask you a question. I recently came across a picture of my grandfather when he was young solider and I just wanted your opinion on how tall does he look in this picture? I know it makes him look shorter since it blocks out the bottom quarter of his legs but I am guessing around 6'1? Just wanted your opinion (the expert lol). I would really appreciate a response. The link is below you can just cut and paste it.

Ok then I will claim flat 5'9 from now onwards.
If I were 176cm at night, how would I feel among young men at Uk?
Sorry for asking you so many questions.
I just want to know
Editor Rob
Young men are closer to 178cm, so it's still going to be within average range.
Tunman said on 5/Jun/19
Rob,how much do you think those height machines add?you know those that measure height weight body fat and so on.Do you think it's like 2-3 cm?I'm not sure but I think Connor from this site who is about 6' once said he measured 190cm in big shoes under one such device and 186cm barefeet.My dad who claims 184 but looks 182 max these days told me he was 186 under it (although he was in 1.5cm shoes).Maybe G got his 5'8 thanks to that?

Rob does height loss as you age cause any mental/physical health problems?
Editor Rob
It could cause physical problems, as discs degenerate, cartilage wears down, bone density decreases.

As for mental issues, I haven't read any study on a link between it (unlike some of the studies about physical health and height loss)...but maybe there is a small percentage in which height loss has a negative impact on their mental well-being...

Hey Rob, why is 5ft 7 for a man described as short but 5ft 11 is never described as tall for a man. Both heights are 2 inches away of the average height. I've even heard 6ft 1in described as not that tall.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

because 5'7 is 3 inches below average while 5'11 is 1 inch above average

the average height for a caucasian man in the western world is 5'10
Editor Rob
The person asking that question was from England, so the average there sits around 5ft 9 1/8th.

Rob, what would estimate my final height to be? my height is 5'8.7 after 7 hours at 17.5 yrs old, mom's 5'0.5, dad's 5'7, my height at 16 was 5'8.
Editor Rob
At your age if you gained another inch it would be a bit more than expected.

Cmillz lots of 5ft 8 guys claim 5ft 10 as many guys as those 5ft 6 guys you say claim 5ft8 but this is the 3rd time you've mocked men of 5ft 6 I think your seriously insecure yourself
Connor Hennebury said on 4/Jun/19
Hey Rob, I measure 6'2 β…› in the morning and my low can be anywhere from 6'1.5 to 6'1 depending on my activities throughout the day. Although since I am usually taller than 6'2 throughout most of the day, you know being in shoes and and I comb my hair up a little, would you say claiming 6'2 is a stretch? Or would me claiming 6'1.5 be better? Also would I be considered a weak 6'2? Thanks!
Editor Rob
I think height is measure of our bodies without footwear, so if you went with 6ft 2 it would be a morning height. That of course is still a valid measurement, but we all shrink very quickly and within a few hours you are nearer 6ft 1.5.

Maybe that is a good figure to claim.

@Editor Rob

Quick question:
My dad was peak 5'9 now maybe 5'8.5 area maybe even touch under.
My mom 5'1.5 to weak 5'2

My mom's parents are 5'2 and 5'7.5 (peak)
My dad's parents were 5'2 and 5'10 to 5'11 area
Tallest member was my great grandfather maybe 6'1 to 6'3 but can't confirm. And some great uncles maybe 5'11 to 6'3 but not certain.
Would me being 5'11.5 to 6'0 be expected?
The height formula says 5'8 zone

I know you mentioned your dad was close to 5'10 peak. Were your grandparents or any uncles on the taller side?

Thanks!
Editor Rob
You managed to grow a few inches taller than expected based on parents.

Hey Rob,I love this site...I was wondering,after how many hours of being up,would you condider your true height to be? Around 10am,I'm 5'3 and a half...

I'm only up for about 3 and a half hours by that time,usually.

So I was curious on what time of day you could consider your true height...thanks...awesome site...
Editor Rob
I would say 5 hours is a fair timeframe, but if you were to be measured at 10am after being up 3 hours, that isn't unreasonable either. We shrink a fair amount within first couple of hours of rising.

What most people picture as a 5’8 guy in their mind is actually a 5’6 guy in reality. Because 5’6 guys laughably claim to be 5’8. And people are naive enough to buy into their claims.

Editor Rob

It would be remarkable to still actually be doing this site by the time I shrink to 5ft 7.5-7.75 range (enough to then list a peak/current).

Initially 5 years was going to be my limit, then I though 10 years...now I'm thinking 15 years is enough.

I'll be saying the same thing when it hits 25 no doubt! πŸ˜„

Hey Rob, what's your opinion on a 6ft/183cm guy in the US/UK. Would the guy feel tall.

generally a six footer would feel tall far more often than they'd feel somewhat average...but it can depend on your group of friends, or even your mindset.
jay9864 said on 3/Jun/19
Hi Rob, how tall would a guy be if he's 6ft 4.5 in shoes/trainers.

Depends on the thickness, but many are close to an inch so 6ft 3.5 is possible. If he had nike shox maybe just over 6ft 3, if he had vans, maybe almost 6ft 4...

Hey Rob, I checked my floors with a spirit level and the floor I usually measure on has the bubble going towards the wall past the first line of the level, I believe that’d slightly undermeasure me? The actually wall has the bubble pretty much in the middle.
Editor Rob
That could be the wall slopes very slightly away from the wall, so your heels might be a small fraction lower than if they were at the wall.

Hi Rob just say that I am 5 foot 11 and my parents being 5'4 and 5'3 and also they were measured in stadiometre so my question is really ground surface affect your height?In really good surface I am being taller than my parents about 8 and 9 inches but in bad surface that decrease to 7 and 8 inches respectively so absolutely shocking.So please tell me Rob thank you
Editor Rob
The surface can make a difference - but 1 inch is a lot, meaning the floor/wall is a bit wonky.
Goel175cm said on 1/Jun/19
Rob, I am 176.6 cm generally at morning and after 6 hours i am still 175 cm but at night i fall to 174.8 cm. Would you consider me a weak 5'9?
Is 173 cm is in the short range for young UK guy or still in the lower end of average range?
I was just wondering how a guy about 2 cm shorter will feel among younger generation of UK?
Editor Rob
173cm is probably at the high end of short and low end of average for a young guy in the UK.

I would say from your stats that you were an acceptable 5ft 9...at worse you drop the thickness of 3 penny's under it...not much is it!

Actually 2016 was maybe the best year ever posture wise.I don't know why but really it was like everybody was shorter or simply that I felt myself taller and since I'm only 31 now I doubt I've lost anything.To give an example I had a friend who looked mostly 172-3 but as of 2018 it seemed to me like we were almost with the same eyelevel,wouldn't have said more than 1/4"difference.The thing is that once next to a wall with squares reportedly measured 25cm each it seemed 173-73,5 was the max arguable barefeet.Why have I thought we were about the same in 2018 was a mystery but definitely my perception was altered.I know I'm speaking of something that won't exceed 2-3cm but I wonder if it's common for everybody.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 31/May/19
That's EXACTLY what I thought when comparing Samuel with Patrick!!!!

Patrick still looked very tall next to little Kerry Washington, who I believe is 5ft4. I really enjoyed the opportunity of seeing all these excellent stars together. It was a real character study, Samuel playing the bad guy for a change and Patrick playing the persecuted one. When I have finished with my 'American Horror Story' boxsets, I will probably purchase myself a copy!

Cheers Rob, and here's wishing you and Jenny a lovely weekend.

All the very best!

Hi Tunman!

No it's not you missing comments I haven't posted in awhile. I just needed to get away from being too height obsessed lol.

I used to post more back in 2012 to 2014. I love the site and have been on and off when checking out some celebs.

And yes you are similar to me with the stretching. I used to do some few years back. I don't think I dipped to 5'11.5 even at my low back in 2013-2014 but who knows I recall measuring 5'11.8 to 6'0 flat at my low.

I always thought there is over an inch of "unlockable height" in our spine but that may be exaggerated. I still think stretching can get .3 of an inch or so. Maybe it's as you say we stand with better posture when stretching. It may be worth doing 5 to 10 mins a day.

When you say:
"I mean back then I often perceived people around me as slightly shorter than I feel now"

I understand 100%. I also feel this way. I feel at times like 5'7 to 5'8 guys aren't much shorter than I. I think this is psychological though as in our 20s we accept we are at our peak and won't get taller via natural growth.

Sometimes I don't stand straight either especially when walking.

I'll try to check back on this site on and off so see you around :)

Good luck with everything!
avi said on 30/May/19
@Rob

I think this is a good way to measure too:

My head is 9.5 to 9.6 inches. I think it's slightly over 9.5.
Bottom of my chin is a strong 5'2 to 5'2.5 zone.
Add 9.6 inches there is my 5'11.6 to 6'0.1 range.

That's pretty accurate I'd say right?

I noticed that the tip of my nose to top of my head is a touch over 6.5 inches.
To the middle of my lips it's 7.5 inches.
Does this seem pretty standard for someone my size?

Thanks!
Editor Rob
Always best to try to get an object on top of our heads to measure.

Your head size seems pretty standard range for your height.

I'm watching a film on the Horror Channel called 'Lakeview Terrace', starring Samuel L Jackson, Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington. What a great cast! I couldn't resist it; Samuel is playing a power-mad cop, who has a screw loose. I've been yearning for it to come round as I missed the first showing. It's been well worth the wait! Cheers, Rob!

@FiveEightJake
You might fall within the 30% in the young generation so you will probably see more people taller than shorter.But then if you're short a 5'11.5 must be classified as tall.lol at these 6'people feeling short.
To be honest,you could hardly have a serious discussion about height with common people outside this site.Either they're totally biased or have no serious idea about the topic.Just try to convince somebody who thinks there are 50 million people over 200cm or another that there are 15 million in China alone about what you're saying here.

My back hurts something awful. I am alleviating the pain by listening to some REM. I have an enormous supply of canned drinks to hand and a few grapes to boot. Then I have some Babybels to dunk in marmite. That's me sorted for the night then!

FiveEightJake said on 29/May/19
Rob I thought you were 5’9 in the morning, I’m just over 5’9 in the morning and hover around 174-173.7 most of the day. Today in town (England) I felt like I was taller or at least the same range as most men, a mix of old and young. It’s suprising to me since on the internet 5’8 is viewed as quite short and I often see posts of people who are 6foot saying they feel short in School settings, mostly Americans, do you think people’s perception of height is skewed and that a lot of people don’t know or lie about there actual height, I’ve no doubt amongst younger people 18-23 I’d probably be lower average, I’m 23 myself. I just find it bizarre seeing people above 5’8 complaining about there height, what used to throw me is that if I couldn’t see over someone’s head I’d think they were taller forgetting I have 4-5 inches above my eyes.

Anyway Rob I think I’d edge you a few mm but I’m giving you 174 because you’re humour is class
Editor Rob
On the very best day I might manage close to 5ft 9, but usually it would be a little under that.

I think true heights can be distorted by people adding an inch to their heights, so maybe there is something in 5ft 8 being seen or described online quite frequently as short.
Tunman said on 29/May/19
@Avi
hi,man nice to see you're back.It's been a while you didn't post on this site,or is it me who missed your comments?
Anyways I used to perform a routine that would take say 10 mins per day from late 2014 till 2016 at least sporadically.Beleive me I often used to measure 2-3mms over 5'9.5" rather than 1-2mms under the mark.Is it related to the stretching or rather to the less active lifestyle I had especially in 2014-5?I may never know.One thing is sure,my posture was definitely the best I ever had,I mean back then I often perceived people around me as slightly shorter than I feel now.To be fair I didn't perform any measurement since december 2016 which is just pointless since I won't grow in my late 20's.Imho stretching won't help you gain height but it's possible that you'll hold a slightly better posture or at least avoid to hit your lowest.Maybe it's worth giving it a try for a month then compare if you measure 6-7mms more at your low?
AndrewV said on 28/May/19
Rob, would you consider 155-160 pounds to be "skinny" for a 184cm/6ft man?
Editor Rob
Yes, that is quite a trim and slim weight. Of course, it can depend on skeletal structure and muscle mass how that 155-160 can look.
hide ardana said on 28/May/19
Rob what do you think about we claim our height genuinely in night or after wake up?
Editor Rob
Both are valid statements of our height.

However, if you consider the average time that people get measured, then it's several hours after wakening when we've lost 80% of our morning height. If you want to go with that average, then saying a height you measure around mid-day or so, seems fair. You won't shrink greatly from that point through till evening, compared to how much you shrink in the first hour or 2 of the day.
Jdubbz said on 28/May/19
Hey Rob, lately I've been having some issues with my measurements. My mom who is 15 inches shorter than me measured me with a thin horizontal book (not the spine) and it came out to about 1.25 inches shorter than the height I measure on my own. I knew it couldn't be right since I placed a few completely flat objects on that mark and stood under them, and they all came up to my hairline. I also have stood next to a few different tape measures in front of a mirror, and the top of my head comes up to between 6'5 and 6'6 as opposed to the 6'4.25 or so she measured. I also measure facing towards the wall (exactly like in your videos) whereas she made me face away from it. Why is there such a huge difference in the height she measured vs. what I've been measuring with the spine of a book/aerosol can? Which do you think is more accurate for me? I've been having some height insecurity lately because of that, even though I know that my own measurement is probably a lot more accurate.
Editor Rob
Don't let your Mother measure you again ☺️ Take her tape measure away!

I would still try to redo the facing wall measurement - a tape in front of your eye up to your hair and making sure it is straight, is fair enough, but still could be 1cm off.
Dann D?az said on 27/May/19

James Brett 172cm said on 27/May/19
Rob at 172cm I have been told me face looks healthier and better when I weigh 159 pounds say compared too when I only weigh 150 pounds

I know you said you said yourself want too get down 154 pounds should I aim for example too be 152-153 pounds or would I be best staying at 159 lbs?


I also workout quite often by doing push-ups
Editor Rob
Sometimes there's a point at which other people think you look good, but another 10 pound lower and they think 'you look gaunt'.

For me, I think 147-150 is probably when I'll be looking 'too thin' to others. At the moment I checked and I'm 157.5 pounds, but actually I might aim for 150 this summer and see how I look.

You might have more muscle mass than me, so for you 155-160 is ideal range.

Hey Rob, I tried out my seca 213 and I didn’t use a wall with it, just free standing and I was just wondering if that would make any difference as opposed to putting it against a wall like your measurement videos?
Editor Rob
Freestanding is ok as long as you aren't pushing the stadiometer so that it is at a slightl angle (then you might undermeasure). That's why I say face it if you have it freestanding, then you are less likely to mismeasure.

If it's got the little plastic stabilisers and against a wall, then you can go back against it and it should give a good reading - I did that mostly this year in any videos I did with back to the stadiometer.

MD said on 24/May/19
Rob, every once in awhile I'll write to a celeb's agency or such if I'm curious about their height. They rarely answer back, but the agent of British sprinter Harry Aikines-Aryeetey got back and said he'd ask Harry his height and he said 5'10" (and 86 kgs, which is just a kilogram off his regularly listed weight). This seemed particularly honest to me since he's listed at least as 5'11" everywhere, though it was clear to me given the heights of the other on Team GB during the Olympics and such that he is lucky to be 5'10" especially considering his listed weight.

Anyway, just thought you might like to add him; it'd help measure the heights of the rest of the sprinters on Team GB.
Editor Rob
It's interesting to say 5ft 10, although I am out of touch with athletic stars even in the UK.

@SwellMan

Actually, since we lose on average about 3/4s of an inch or 2cm throughout the day. A morning height of 5'10 means you will measure 5'9.25 at your low. Also, evening and night are the same thing, so I don't know why you were listing two different heights there unless you meant you measure 5'9.25 in the afternoon which means you lose more than average.

Hey Rob

I measured my head length using the mirror and tape measure method. I brought the tape measure until it was flush with my nose, since I have a giant mirror in front of me, and I brought the top of the tape measure until it felt like it was level with the top of my head, I used a box of crayon pencils to check if it was level, and then I looked at the measurement. My head length looks to be around 9 inches, I would say 8.5-75 inches. Either I did it wrong or it means I have a smaller than average head size for a male. What do you think?
Editor Rob
Remember I done a simple Video a few years back which is an alternative way of checking.

You could also use a mirror and stand tall (looking straight ahead), then have the tape measure up to just above your chin and note down the difference between that and what you measure the same moment.

Under 9 would be smaller than average, but if you like the idea of looking taller to other people, having a small head fools most people.

of course i do know my own height, i had meassured myself many times before i finally learned to deal with it. But what would you guess me depending on my photo? Like you see i was wearing boots that probably gave me 2.5cm or so.

Click Here

Thanks for your opinion.

For fact i wake up at being 1.78m or a little above, usually going to down to 1.76m at lowest. I call myself 1.76m and think this is most honest.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have thought you looked short like 5ft 6-7, and I could see 5ft 9 to 11 as a possible range.
Ashlion said on 18/May/19
Rob is this true that one person's height can be guessed by photo what do you think
Editor Rob
I think you might get a rough idea, but it is difficult because of proportions, clothing and how high/low a camera is (and even the focal length used)

Hi Rob!

I have just come across some 'pet wine', bought with all good intentions by my brother! It's been created for pet owners who want to drink a toast with their pets, and it's alcohol-free. He's surprised that the cats don't like it, but it's no news to me. Cats manufacture their own supply of vitamin 'C' within their bodies, and are repelled by anything fruity!

Dogs, on the other hand.... 🐢🍷
Editor Rob
I never heard of pet wine, but since it's alcohol free, that's good by me.
I avoid booze and can't remember last time I had alcohol, now all I need is to eliminate fizzy drinks!

Rob, which is the typical eye level of a 6ft4 guy?
Editor Rob
On average it would be more 5ft 11 and change range

@Editor Rob

I know there are a lot of requests in your queue but I think Don Knotts is definitely worthy of a page. I'm surprised he wasn't added already.

He is listed at 5'6.5 but can appear over 5'7 at times

Thanks!

If I'm 5'10 in the morning, 5'9.25 in the evening, and 5'9 at night, what height should I claim?
Editor Rob
You are a solid 5ft 9 guy. If you claim that, I doubt you are going to encounter many people through life who will question your claim...in fact many will not be happy because they inflate their own claims and encountering honesty can knock them off balance a bit.

Hey Rob How Would One Feel At 184.3 CM In UK Or Scotland.
Editor Rob
They should feel reasonably tall. It's over 3 inches above average, so you are seeing on a daily basis a big majority of men shorter than yourself...
Nik said on 16/May/19
@ Rob - What size is your head please?
Editor Rob
If it's perfectly level it's around 9.6 to chin tip. In many photos it would be near 10 inches Click Here.

Just a very slight tilt of eyes down (and we are talking a small amount) and it would be 10 inches in a photo. Raise eyes a bit, and it could be nearer 9 inch.

@ Rob - I must take my hat off to you today for your patience in persevering with me when it came to clearing my cookies. Up until recently, they were things that you dunked into your tea, not things you stored, or they'd go soft and stale. I was beginning to think that's what was happening to my brain! Thanks to your help, though, I managed it! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
Editor Rob
It's good to know you managed that!
Csimpson6ft said on 11/May/19
@Miss Sandy Cowell you're very welcome, hope you have a wonderful weekend too!

@Editor Rob
Hey Rob, hope you are well.

As I mentioned on this site in the past I am a weak 6'0. I think I peaked out at 22-23 almost 5 years ago. I used to do some more stretches and a bit more active but I feel now I some times struggle with the 5'11.5 mark(at my low at 11pm to 12am after a day at work where my spine compressed)
Do you think stretches are beneficial to get me back to 5'11.8 low which is what i was a few years back? I know you have a video of doing some on a curl up bar and with the door frame...not sure I'f they can unlock close to .5 inches of height.
I can't have shrunk .3 of an inch I'm only in my late 20s.i am wondering if all the sitting at work compresses the spine / discs. During 2012 to early 2016 I wasn't full time so was more active.

If asked my height (which never happens) I say "around 5'11.5" I won't claim 6'0 as I think a strong 6'0 will will be no less than 5'11.9 to 6'0.1 at end of day absolute low. My license says 5'11 lol.
Editor Rob
In 20's it is unlikely to be natural loss, unless a disc is a bit damaged.

It might be worth doing your own simple routine. 5-10 minutes a day of decompressing spine (using a hanging bar) for 6 months.
cmillzz said on 11/May/19
not 100% sure but I think I may have grown a very small amount in the past few months. either that, or my posture is just better. would be surprising though considering I’m 21.

Rob, is it possible to increase the height with the help of exercise and a horizontal bar? How much will the increase? 0.5, 1, 2 cm? How long will the effect be?
Do I understand correctly that the increase due to exercise will last only in the morning, and then come to naught in 3-4 hours?
Editor Rob
Only if your posture isn't optimal.
But then many people might have room for a small fractional improvement like you say, half a cm or so.

Even if a simple routine doesn't effect your height positively, it may still have longer term benefits in strengthening your muscles, especially as you age...I believe it could benefit and reduce shrinkage.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/May/19
@ Conner - It's always great to talk with you too!

I haven't been a brunette for quite a few years now and certainly not since I've been coming here. The accumulative effect of highlights turns the hair blonde. I'd bleached it myself before and the lengths broke through weakness. Now that I get it done professionally, it's the longest it's been since I was a kid. I've been a real chameleon in my time, trying every natural hair colour from blondes and reds through to dark browns and black. My natural colour was dark chestnut, but I doubt if I'll ever see it again!

The weekend is only round the corner, so have a good one, Connor!

All the Best!

Hi, Rob I would like to ask my height getting out of bed in the morning is β€œ5’9 1/8”and β€œ5’8 1/2” at night before bed. What is my correct height?
Editor Rob
Any figure between that range is a measurement of your height. But for telling others - imagine you turn up at 11am for an appointment and measure 5ft 8.75 - it's perfectly reasonable to claim that mark.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/May/19
Hey Rob!

I have some great news:

After five long weeks in hospital, my Dad is home as of today. Hooray to that! There will, of course, be an aftercare programme, which will include daily visits and physiotherapy.

Needless to say, I will be visiting him very soon.

Best wishes to you, Jenny and all Celebheights visitors,

Rob, do you ever plan on having comments just auto approved in the future? It does seem like a lot of work having to read and approve (or delete) every single comment. But if you don’t mind moderating comments, then that’s fine I guess.
Editor Rob
I don't plan on changing it on here as it would be a lot worse without a moderator in place. It needs moderation to limit the amount of comments that get submitted that are junk/spam/self-promotion.

@Christian: which brand or style do you normally wear that give you 3/4”?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/May/19
@ Connor - I am a natural brunette, but I 'started out' with blonde curls. I have highlights at an my hairdressers. It looks natural to those who have never seen me dark. It took a few years of highlights before I was completely blonde. I only set out for a lighter look, but it got lighter and paler until I was blonde all over. I like absolutely all hair colours and don't have a preference.

Cheers Connor and have a happy week!

@Rob
How hard should you put the stadiometer/cylinder on your head? When I do it, I put it so that I can lightly feel it on the top of my head, while the nurse pushes it hard on my head which makes me a bit shorter.
Editor Rob
You should push it down until it stops, but what sometimes happens with plastic devices is people push it down so the device starts bending and undermeasuring.
Delvin chung said on 6/May/19

@ James B - My boyfriend measures in at 5ft9. When he was in the Army, he was 15st of solid muscle. (210lbs)

I didn't know him then, but I know some who did. They didn't want to get on his wrong side, I can tell you! He is firm, but fair, and joined the Army to help people.

Have a great weekend James! πŸ˜πŸ‘

I prefer thinner soled shoes too, but that more has to do with aesthetics than height. Thicker shoes on feet usually looks bulky and clumsy. 3/4" thick shoes are my ideal.
6james94 said on 4/May/19
I'm thinking of buying a measuring tape. Which kind do you use? I want to get a accurate measurement, because I have a hard time believing my height and it's kind of upsetting me and it's ruining my relationships with loved ones. I kind of want to end me trying to figure out my real height and just settle it. I kinda need a answer a little. So thank you rob.
Editor Rob
Most retractable tapes found in hardware/diy stores or even poundshops are - in my experience in Scotland - very accurate.

Well, Rob, I only had one Summer of it! It must be a real nuisance to rely on antihistamines to get by, but I do need some in the house nonetheless - because over the years, I have developed an allergy to the ingredient they use in place of wheat, for those who have a wheat allergy.

Once it was so bad I had to dial 111. I had a painful but itchy rash all over my body. They told me to take antihistamines - and they worked!

Cheers Rob! πŸ˜πŸ‘

I definitely suffer still with reactions to some materials, some metals/fabric I found causes issues.

@Rob what is difference between measuring a person in the top of their head (highest point) o putting the bar on the sides of their head (This way the person can be missmeasured)?
Editor Rob
It can depend on the curvature of the skull, but also how far away from the centre the bar was - I would say it could be in 1/4 to 1/2 inch range.
Emydsa said on 3/May/19

James Brett 172cm said on 2/May/19
Sandy how tall is your boyfriend?
James Brett 172cm said on 2/May/19
Rob I was measured about a year ago at the doctors on a stadiometer at 172cm yet 4 years ago at the gym they measured me at 170.8cm using a wall tape measure.

How could there be such a difference in the measurements?
Editor Rob
1.2cm isn't a huge variation . But if you saw both measurements on the stadiometer and it was roughly similar time of day, then it is significant.

Don't always rely on what a person reads out - double check it yourself. Some doctor/nurses may well round down/up when calling a figure out.
edwards said on 2/May/19

this is coincidense,my case is same as your brother.i'm a type of a person who usually dont notice anything happening.i didnt notice that rob has a beard,i have now become obessed with this site.i usually dont look any photos but i recently saw that rob also have a youtube channel,i saw him with beard and thought it suited him and later found that there's plently of rob's photo with beard through out different pages.me too,imma not that much into details but was shocked and couldnt believe that it was rob.holycow

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/May/19
Rob, i have a curious question as i wondering for some years. Is stadiometer measurement more accurate than a tape measurement? I understand tapes have 1/8 less than stadiometer, so my curious point is the less one measurement is our true height or the more?
Editor Rob
Some cheaper stadiometers might give errors. The blue seca one has near 1/8th. The newer white one I feel is nearly bang on for feet/inches, but the mm bar seems as though it was misprinted by 1mm.

The more expensive a stadiometer, I think the greater the reliability/accuracy in manufacture.

Obviously they test the stadiometers when they come off the production line and know that the older ones had slight errors, but deemed it was acceptable range of error.

Rob, do you think some sleeping positions can affect morning height? I’ve always wondered what sleeping position would achieve the maximum morning height.
Editor Rob
Yes, very slightly - on back I feel is optimal, but curled up and spine twisted, might mean the discs aren't able to fully re-hydrate.

@Jdubbz: I don’t often get challenged at 6’4” as often unless I’m in very thick footwear. But that makes me more 6’5.5. I prefer 6’5” in shoes because of lower doorways really. I still encounter some that are 6’6 even 6’5”. But 6’5.5 in shoes isn’t all that bad I do agree. Even on the occasion I’m in a steel toe I can get up around 6’6” and that’s not terrible but I wouldn’t want to be that height in shoes all the time

@Rob

I have not posted for awhile hope all is well. I did post a few weeks ago asking if Ken Curtis who played Festus on Gunsmoke and Bob Crane who played Colonel Hogan on Hogan's Heroes can be added. Curtis looked 5'10.5 to 5'11 area (listed at 6'0). Crane looked 5'10 to 5'10.5 on Hogan's Heroes. He was listed as 5'10.

Also I think Carroll O'Connor from All in the Family should definitely be on here. He's listed at 5'11 but I think looked a strong 5'10 . Rob Reiner's page had comments where most agreed he looked 5'10 or so.

Do you think you'd be able to add at least one of these guys for now?

They all are pretty popular TV icons.

Thanks!
Editor Rob
I'd need to add them to the big list of considerations.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/May/19
@ Rob - I suppose I'm quite lucky like that, in that I've only ever suffered from hayfever for one year because I was sleeping in a bed positioned by the window, which the other half insisted on keeping open. I was sneezing all the time and my eyes were running. As soon as I moved back to my own little bed at home, it cleared up.

I've never forgotten the misery, the constant use of inhalers, sprays and tablets. They say you have to experience everything once. I truly believe that. At least I can empathise with hayfever sufferers now. πŸ˜‰
Editor Rob
Mine got worse as I got older, those tablets do work!, but you need to give them a week or so and use daily.
Serph king said on 1/May/19
Hey rob, how accurate do you think those digital height measurement machines? The one's that calculate height and body mass index too..??
Editor Rob
From what I've seen of others using them, I think reasonably accurate as long as you stand straight. I definitely think if you lean 2 inches forward/back you could undermeasure.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
