How tall is Rob Paul

Rob Paul's Height

5ft 8 ⅛ (173 cm)

I created in 2004 as an entertainment site about Celebrity Height. I measure 5ft 8 ⅛in at night, which is usually about the height I am in most photos with celebrities. First thing in the morning, I measure around 5ft 8 ¾in. For some height-related videos check out my Youtube channel. As of February 2019 I measure close to 5ft 8.25 at lunchtime and in this Video you can see my current weight.

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!

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.

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
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
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.

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...
Matt99 said on 13/Jun/19
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.

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

Hey Rob and all!

Yesterday on eBay, I found for sale a 'working TARDIS'. I thought, "Blimey! How much money will that save on travelling fees?"

The times, from childhood onwards, that I've fantasized about having one of those, but then, this was for sale in a toy department, more's the pity!

🅰️➖➖➖➖➖➖🅱️ Simples!

Cheers Rob and all you lovely visitors!
Editor Rob
A working Tardis would come in handy!
James Brett 172cm said on 12/Jun/19
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.

Hi Rob,

How accurate are Madame Tussaud's wax statues to actual heights of celebs?
Editor Rob
It depends if the celebrity agreed to have their dimensions taken or not. For those who haven't, then they'd have to guess, but it seems a fair proportion do go along with it.
Mambo said on 11/Jun/19
Rob, what's the most ridiculous height clain you've ever witnessed either from a celebrity or in real life? I've seen height claims irl, that just cause anger inside me.
Editor Rob
To be fair, doing a site like this means a ton of little bits of information, many of which I forget. I am certain there is a proportion who have added 3-4 inches to their height.
Eds said on 11/Jun/19
Hey Rob! Im a 165cm guy! A girl im interested in is 180. Would we look awkward!?
Editor Rob
If you both like each other, that's what matters. To others it is a rarer site, and the odd nasty person might comment or say something derogatory.

People worry too often what others think and live their life 'in check' and sometimes don't pursue goals/relationships out of fear.
Canson said on 11/Jun/19
@Rob: that doesn’t surprise me if 5’8 1/8 is a normal low for you. I wouldn’t expect your extreme low to be more than 5’8 if not even 5’7 7/8 perhaps

@ rob i want to tell you that do my younger son has chance of hitting 5'11,i have two son the elder one who is not interested and concerned with height is 187 cm or almost 6'2 and is 29 years currently,he is not interested in height but my younger who is 179 cm is quite obsessed with height and he is stuck in 179 cm ,he is 19.5 years old and is quite childish and asks me the other day pop will i grow any cm,i wanna be atleast 5'11 given that i am 183 and his elder brother[my elder son]is 187 cm ,do you think he have any chance in hitting 5'11.he has late very late growth,he was 5'7 at 16 and 5'9 at 18 and at 19.5 currently he is 179 cm,do you think he has a chance of 5'11?
Editor Rob
The plates might not be fully closed...there is always a chance I suppose of a final push - I do think if some folk took 6-12 months and did a routine, it would increase the chance of body responding.

@ Rob - ALL my cats love Dreamies and ALL of them love catnip! Yes, they are costing me a fortune! 😹😹😹

Can I ask you a question rob? I’m 23 now I have been having some serious hunger for the past week or so and leg pain /aches and some acne that I haven’t had since I was a teenager normally I’m always 175cm on the dot 5-6 hours out of bed and just took a measurement after not for months and seems I’m measuring 175.2 consistently while measuring same as always I know it’s a tiny amount but seems to have changed what do you think of this?
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.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Jun/19
Hey Rob and all!

A catfood and litter delivery, including toys, treats, blankets and catnip, arrived early this afternoon. My brother opened it up, and the cats scented out the catnip for themselves - three packets of the stuff! They were meant to have a packet a week, but now all three packets are strewn all over the hall carpet!

Editor Rob
Some cats love that, but some seem to ignore it...but not one cat I've come across has refused dreamies!

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.
avi said on 7/Jun/19
@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.

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.
Jason J Cannady said on 7/Jun/19
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.

The link didn't seem to show anything.

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?

James Brett 172cm said on 5/Jun/19
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.
5ft8Jack said on 5/Jun/19
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.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 5/Jun/19
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 ⅛ 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?

Editor Rob
You managed to grow a few inches taller than expected based on parents.
5feet3onehalf said on 4/Jun/19
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.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Jun/19

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.
Matt99 said on 4/Jun/19
Sorry for the typo, so in conclusion I’d be 1-3mm undermeasured?
Editor Rob
Yes, I'd expect a couple of mm at least...
James Brett 172cm said on 3/Jun/19
Rob if you did shrink would you give yourself a peak and current height?
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 I'm thinking 15 years is enough.

I'll be saying the same thing when it hits 25 no doubt! 😄

Maybe part of it is that the 5ft part is still attached to the description.

Hey Rob, what's your opinion on a 6ft/183cm guy in the US/UK. Would the guy feel tall.
Editor Rob
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.
Editor Rob
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.
Ashlion said on 1/Jun/19
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 worse you drop the thickness of 3 penny's under it...not much is it!

help me out with this please

the guy on right is my brother . he is 176cm out of bed and 174cm at night . how tall is the man in the sport jacket on left ? what would his evening height be ?

my guess is 169cm evening

It would be a surprise if he was above 169, but less of a surprise if he measured a bit under 169 at night.
Tunman said on 31/May/19
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

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?

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.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/May/19
@ Rob - Thank you very much!
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!

Yes, that was a decent movie, if I remember Samuel could look over 2 inches taller than patrick.
Tunman said on 30/May/19
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 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.

Editor Rob
Saying lunch-afternoon I think is reasonable. Personally I wouldn't claim an out of bed height, none of my medical files would have anything more than 173cm on them as even at 11am I am down into that range.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/May/19
Hi Rob!

On Monday night I had a stinking frightful accident! I fell into a dirty great pile of laundry! I guess it's back to square one for me.

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!

Cheers Rob! 😂
Editor Rob
I hope you get some rest and recovery for your back!

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
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
Good evening Rob, my height outside the bed (barefoot and breathing hard) is 176.5 cm. Now tell me what is my solid stature with which you would consider me in "Celebheights"?
postscript: I think you are 173.5 cm tall!
Editor Rob
You could probably call yourself a 5ft 9 guy.
Christian456 said on 27/May/19
Hi Rob, wearing hidden lifts I'm exactly 6ft 5/195.6cm in my trainers. Would I come across as a 6ft 4 guy 193cm. Thanks.
Editor Rob
Yes without fact since many over-estimate, you might still be thought of as taller than 6ft 4 by a fairly considerable proportion of the population.
Bobby 5ft 10 said on 27/May/19

No, that's pretty average for Canada. Now if you were 177cm at a low, you'd be more above average.
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.
Canson said on 27/May/19
@Cmillz: I’ve reached a normal low after about 3 hours. If you go for a jog after waking it will fall faster
Matt99 said on 26/May/19
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.
Bobby 5ft 10 said on 25/May/19

The huge majority of men are finished by then...a small minority still manage a bit of gain, but really I think if you gained anything significant, treat it as a bonus bit of height.
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.

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.
cmillzz said on 21/May/19

Bobby 5ft 10 said on 19/May/19
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.
Patrick|1.76m said on 19/May/19
Hey Rob,

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.... 🐶🍷

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!

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 fact many will not be happy because they inflate their own claims and encountering honesty can knock them off balance a bit.

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.

@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.

Anonymous921 said on 9/May/19
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!

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.

I like absolutely all hair colours and don't have a preference.

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.

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.

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!

@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)?

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.

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.

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.

Have you noticed growth anywhere else too? Like your feet or your arms.
cmillzz said on 1/May/19
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

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.

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. 😉
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.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/May/19
@ Edwards:- Yes, Edwards, when my brother first saw a picture of Rob, he said, "Is that him? Is that Rob? He's very good-looking!"

He didn't mention anything about the beard. He isn't into details; once I turned up at the house and my hair had gone from black to blonde. He didn't even notice!

Cheers to you, Edwards!

Hi Rob!

Summer is definitely on its way, as I have just experienced taking a trip to the outside toilet.

There was an enormous great bumble bee buzzing around under the glass roof outside, together with an arrangement of noisy wasps and pesky flies. I'd ideally have had to lock the door from the outside, but removing the key takes more strength than I can muster at the moment as I have a cracked rib. However, to keep the door as closed as possible, I had to hold on to the cat flap so that the beasties didn't find their way into the kitchen and dart upon my cats' food. 😣 It didn't impair my aim completely, but I was left with a little puddle on the toilet floor!

Still, I'd rather clear up THAT than chase flies and wasps round the house for ages!

Have a great week Rob, Jenny and all you lovely visitors!

Sandy xxx 😂👍

Yes, it's time for me to start taking the old antihistamine tablets at start of May.
Sean 6 foot 1 said on 30/Apr/19
Rob, what would be the ideal time to measure my height ?
Editor Rob
First thing out of bed if you desire and like the idea of your tallest height!

But generally I feel giving your height after being awake 5 hours is fair, when compared to the time of day (on average) that other people might be getting measured.
edwards said on 30/Apr/19
@rob,i wanna say this since long time ago but didnt wanna disturb you since you're quite busy and this isnt a height topic,rob you look damn handsome with beard,too damn attractive.dont you have a plan on growing beard anytime soon?you look too good with beard😉
Editor Rob
I haven't discounted the idea, but at the moment I'm not growing any bigger beard. But, watch this space.
Xpac99 said on 29/Apr/19
Rob i have seen your video “height loss during the day” and you was about 173,8 during the day (2 pm - 8 pm) . Why you don’t list you at 5ft 8 1/2 ? Most of your list based at 12 am (lunch time)
Editor Rob
I should have done more activity that day, as I will drop another couple of mm.
Canson said on 29/Apr/19
@Cmillz: his growth pattern is a bit out of the ordinary for most but not completely. There are some guys that grow into their 20s and some who may shoot up a couple inches like Jdubbz has in the last year or so
Jdubbz said on 29/Apr/19

I am curious though, why would you prefer to be below 6’5 in shoes? Barefoot I’m around the same as you are in shoes, and it’s really not too bad. You might run into some issues if you’re 6’6 in shoes or a bit taller, but I can’t see 6’5 in shoes causing any issues. Is it because people challenge your 6’4 claims when you’re in sneaks?
Canson said on 29/Apr/19
@Christian: I agree with everything you said. Most people outside of the site simply round up or down. Like for me I’d be listed probably at 6’4.25 or 6’4 3/8 (lunchtime) here whereas outside of the site I just say I’m 6’4” since I’m only 1/4” over at a low 70% of the time and less some days if I hit an extreme low. Conversely if I were 6’4.75 or above I would just say about 6’5”. Some of these guys especially in the General Heights forum that get upset when someone else doesn’t round up a fraction over the mark to half etc are pretty hilarious and sad at the same time. One of them is still trying to convince everyone that Rob is taller than he claims and is upset that Rob doesn’t round up. They’re also the same ones who are touchy about being told they aren’t a certain height. As far as sweet spot I tend to agree. Some of the posters that wish they were say 6’2 or 6’1 etc when they’re 5’10 or 5’9 or 5’8” it’s understood to wish for but in reality there is nothing wrong with their height from a health or practicality standpoint. It’s simply wanting whereas people who are say 6’8 or more and aren’t wealthy enough to afford comfortable living could face comfort and possibly health issues. In keeping I don’t see any advantages that a guy your size 196 would have over a guy Viper’s size at 190 which is why I agree with what you said. You or I would actually have more issues that come from being very tall than somebody Viper’s size. When I say sweet spot though it’s probably the “average person” as I personally would take 193cm at a normal low (192.5-193.1) as my ideal height only because I’m accustomed to being in that neck of the woods now (almost 194 at a low). I’d take 192-194 over 190 only because of that but In terms of practically i would say 190 is better
James Brett 172cm said on 27/Apr/19
Rob one of my old friends from school now plays football in the premier league. On wiki he is listed at 6ft2 (188cm). Do you think the height listing is probably accurate.

There was a picture of him and Chris Coleman (also listed 6’2) and they look close in height
Editor Rob
Some football listings will be very accurate, some outdated, some inflated.
Jdubbz said on 26/Apr/19
Hi Rob, I've noticed something weird lately when it comes to measurements. My eye level at a low is exactly 6'0 3/4 (holding measuring tape up to my eyes in front of a mirror, looking straight ahead), and my measured height is consistently 6'5.35" using a book/aerosol can on several different walls. That gives an eye level of 4.6 inches. However, when I actually measure my eye level in front of a mirror, the distance between my eyes and the top of my head looks more like 4.75- 4.8 inches. Any idea why there's a discrepancy?
Editor Rob
There's going to be some slight errors with measuring, because it can be hard to look 'directly ahead' and be bang on exactly where your pupil is looking. Might be a couple of mm off...

If you use a ruler, then I would account for the top of your head appearing slightly shorter against the ruler than it is if your eyes were at the top of your head. But, if you have 4-5mm of hair and used the top of your hair as a guide, it would be a good indication of your eyelevel.
Myself said on 26/Apr/19
@Canson @Christian @Jdubbz
Yeah, appreciate the support ;)
On behalf of the CH community's official professional approval I shall feel no more frustration in rounding up by 2-4 mm! Hahah
cmillzz said on 26/Apr/19
You could see your GP first and see what they have to say. They’ll probably just refer you to a endocrinologist though, as they’re better equipped to dealing with issues related to growth/hormones.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Apr/19
The doorways in my house are 6'8", but I have a carpet on the floor that is about a cm thick, so the actual height is more like 6'7 5/8". When I wake up and put on my shoes, I'm around 6'7.25" depending on the shoes. My skull doesn't quite hit the doorway, but my hair does, so when I walk through dooways, I sometimes duck my head a little out of habit.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Apr/19
I wouldn't worry about that if I were you. Rounding up a few mm's is nothing, especially when you consider that so many people lie up several cm's like you said. As far as being 196, I don't think that's quite the sweet spot IMO. That would be more like 190. Not saying that 196 is a bad height, but there are more positives of being 190 than 196. You can be 190 and still be the tallest person in a room in most cases.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Apr/19
Yeah, legroom is probably the biggest issue with being our height range. Other than airplane seats, smaller cars, certain clothes, and occasional stares from people, being strong 6'5" or even a weak 6'6" isn't that bad. 6'6"+ is where it starts to get really uncomfortable IMO, especially now that you gotta worry about doorways.

@ ben thanks thanks dude
@bobby 5'10 thanks dud
Canson said on 25/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: yea if I were in your shoes I would not want any more growth lol. 6’5 and change is more than enough. I honestly don’t want it from my height and if I could choose would knock off 1/4-1/3” and just be 6’4 or maybe a hair under like 6’3 7/8 at a low. Something like Myself. Not that it’s huge difference but keeps you at or under 6’5 in shoes
Matt99 said on 25/Apr/19
Click Here Rob how tall do you think this guy is? He claims 6’0. But I think he’s more 5’10 range max.

On his own I wouldn't have guessed six feet, but under. Still, you could have a big head and always look smaller in photos than you think.
Bobby 5'10 (178) said on 25/Apr/19

It would be more 167.6cm actually, 168cm is on the higher end.

@ Connor - Dominic is 42, so he's most definitely fully grown. Tabitha is 36 and they share exactly the same Birthday.

Jdubbz said on 24/Apr/19

I hope not dude. Strong 6'5 weak 6'6 is the most I'd ever want to be. 2 meters is just getting unnecessarily tall. As far as checking with a doctor goes, I'm definitely gonna see one once I graduate next month. I still don't think there's anything wrong, but like you said better safe than sorry. Do you think a general practitioner would be equipped to deal with growth issues, or would I need to see someone more specialized like an endocrinologist?


Just go with 6'4/193cm lol. You're like 3mm off, literally no one can tell the difference between you and a solid 6'4 guy. If I were in your position, I wouldn't even think about that eight of an inch you dip below at night and just claim 6'4 all the time. You're a stronger 6'4 than most guys who claim the height for sure.
Emrys said on 24/Apr/19
Rob, I wake up at 176 cm, and I feel quite short? Why? Is it normal, when the average is 177-179?
Editor Rob
You might be in 174cm range, which in UK/US is within the average range for sure.

Some reasons you could feel short include having a lower eyelevel, not great posture, thin footwear and seeing more taller than shorter/similar people - the taller ones stand out in your memory more and it can feel like they represent a far greater proportion than the shorter people.
Tunman said on 24/Apr/19
Actually one of my friends who is like 5'8.25-8.5"seems like he could be the average man,well at least in the place where I live (not so far from Tunis).5'9 looks indeed slightly over average,probably you'll see more men shorter than yourself but still a decent number will be taller.
Having visited Morroco I felt the average is quite similar to Tunisia.Algeria is allegedly around the same but I can't confirm.As for Libya,well,we had a decent number of migrants since 2011 but it's more those who managed to escape the war and they seem over the average just seeing their life standards so again hard to be sure but I would have thought 5'7 for young libyans.
Are you planning to visit these countries?If so I hope you'll enjoy your trip.
Csimpson6ft said on 24/Apr/19
@Miss Sandy Cowell I never noticed that the Easter eggs taste better than chocolate bars, both are nice but I prefer chocolate bars because there's more to eat from them and they have better value.

How old is Dominic? if you don't mind me asking, if he's still under 18 then he might still have some more growing to do so yeah he probably does have a good chance of hitting 6'0 or at least 5'11.75, but it depends on his genetics.

I was bang on 5'11 when I was 15, then when I turned 16 I grew to 5'11.75 and finally when I was between 17 and 18 years old I grew to the full 6'0 mark, I was surprised that I ended up at 6'0 considering that my mum and dad are only 5'2 and 5'7.
Bobby 5'10 (178) said on 24/Apr/19

Yeah, same here. I also have different definitions from Rob. I agree that the definition for weak should begin at a minimum with the half-integer (1/2) and legit should begin at 7/8s and arguably even at 3/4s if 3/4s is an absolute lowest measurement attainable. As for solid, I define it with the quarter-integer (1/4), so I would classify you as a solid 6'4 since you measure a 1/4 over it at your low, and I classify strong as beginning at the halfway mark, so 1/2 once again, but this can also enter into the territory of weak for another height, if and only if, one doesn't dip under half, but if it's a normal low, then I wouldn't call it the weak zone for X height since at an absolute low, you could dip into 1/4 zone. Currently where I stand I would tentatively say I am weak-flat 5'10 and I say this because, at a normal low, I will look the same height as someone who measures exactly 5'10 at a low, but I can also dip into 5'9 5/8s zone, and then I would be noticeably different from a flat 5'10ner, but not by much.

cmillzz said on 24/Apr/19
What I said was a bit tounge-in-cheek, and looking back now, I can see how it could come off as being rather abrasive. That said, there are a lot of cool people on this site, of course, such as yourself, Ben, Andrea, Matt99, etc. But there truly are some on here who seem to have some rather deep insecurities. You also the trolls and instigators, of course. Every site/forum has those, however, and I believe Rob has done an excellent job of running this site and maintaining it since 2004.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Apr/19
@ Connor - Hi there! Some people swear that the chocolate from Easter eggs is tastier than the chocolate from normal bars! My sister-in-law, Tabitha, loves the little Cadbury's mini eggs. My Dad always has them on his shopping list for when she comes round with baby boy Ferdinand. He is ridiculously cute! In the three short weeks that I didn't see him, he had progressed SO MUCH! He tries to mimic what we say by making the same shapes with his little mouth as we do! Another thing is that he is mesmerised by my hair colour, and pulls about on it!

Tabbi is 5ft3 - noticeably taller than me! With a Dad of around 5ft11, my 'baby brother' Dominic, I think he stands a good chance of hitting the 6ft mark when he grows up. You never know....😏📏📏📏📏📏📏

My Dad's tallest brother, Victor, was 6ft2 and my Dad's highest height was 5ft11.5. It's my German male side that tend to be slightly below average, around the 5ft8 mark.

Cheers Connor, and here's wishing you a thoroughly enjoyable week! 😊👌

Goel175cm said on 24/Apr/19
Thanks for your reply mate
Then me at 175cm will feel slightly above the average.
What about the average in your neighbouring countries?
Morocco,Algeria and Libya?
Canson said on 23/Apr/19
@Myself: to be honest if you’re over 192.5 I don’t see the problem with 193. If I were using CM I would claim 194 despite being under at a low. I’m 193.6-.7 when I hit the gym and that’s 3 days per week at least sometimes 4. I only say 193-194 or 193.5-194 on the site since I dip below
Canson said on 23/Apr/19
@Bobby: my definitions vary a bit from Rob on the opposite end though. I consider weak to be something like .5-.75 whereas he has said before that 2/3-3/4 or 5/8-3/4 is by his standards at a low. So for me if someone doesn’t dip below say 5’9.5 then they’re a weak 5’10”. That’s why I classify Michael jordan as a weak 6’5” as I don’t believe at his peak that he was any more or less than 6’4.5 for example. Whereas strong for me would be anything 1/4”-1/2 at a low. The 3/4-1” and 1-1/4 are the harder ones to quantify. Me personally if I were maybe 6’4 1/8 as opposed to 6’4 1/4-.3 I would say that I’m a solid 6’4 whereas I consider it strong 6’4 where I currently stand. I say that because at 6’4 1/8 I wouldn’t see a difference with someone who is 6’3 7/8 although I wouldn’t with someone who is 6’4 3/8 as well.
Csimpson6ft said on 23/Apr/19
@Miss Sandy Cowell ah well chocolate Easter eggs are a bit overrated anyway, you get more chocolate from a bag of sweets than an egg and more value for it too, I hope we can get in touch again soon Sandy, it's been nice talking to you as always!
Timothy Andrew Sarkar said on 23/Apr/19
@Lell that is a very low eye level and not average, its rare however possible. Maybe try measuring it again? 5'6.75- 5'7 would be more average for your height. My eye level is a bit over 5'7 or 171 cm and I measure just a bit above 6'0.
Tunman said on 23/Apr/19
Yes,from Tunisia,hence the "Tun"part in my name.
If you took the whole of Tunisian men then it's more 5'7 flat,however for the young generation much more 5'8.The thing is that the country,unlike western countries has a serious difference between urban and rural areas the latter being way poorer.The southern and central regions are probably the poorest and the average youngster will rather be 5'7-7.5".However the northern part and the coastal part(except in the south)are the wealthiest,so the average will be more 5'8.5" or even 5'9 in some rich districts.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Apr/19
@ Connor - Hi! I haven't had any Easter eggs either! If I had done, I'd probably have kept them for a while to admire! When I was a kid, I used to have a particular liking for Lindt mini eggs. They had a flavour all their own; the sort of melt-in-the-mouth yumminess that nobody has ever topped to this day!

If I still had a sweet tooth, I'd opt for them again!

Ha ha! I can remember shopping in Sainsbury's and failing miserably to resist eating one of the Lindt - eh - balls! Then I would queue up at the checkout and pay for an unwrapped, half-melted, piece of foil. The looks on the checkout girls' faces were a picture, worthy of a UTube look-in!

Cheers Connor! xxx
QM6'1QM said on 23/Apr/19
Hi, Rob.
Today i measured my height (it was in the morning) and i got 187.8 cm.
We all knows that average man loss 1.8-2 cm everyday.
So it will be right to claim 185 cm or 186 cm - it's way better ?

P.S. Last two times i claimed "185 cm" and people was shocked & they just no had any questions to me.
Editor Rob
186 is a fair claim, 185 is definitely a low range for you and would surprise some people I'm sure.
Csimpson6ft said on 23/Apr/19
@Miss Sandy Cowell I hope you've had a good Easter! Did you get an egg? I just got some chocolate but no egg though.
Lell said on 23/Apr/19
Hey Rob, I seem to be growing yet the height difference between me and my friends is still the same. Does it mean that they're growing at the same rate? Oh and another question. My height is 181.5 cm, but my eyelevel is about 167.5 cm. Is that low?
Editor Rob
Your eyelevel seems pretty average from what you say, and friends too might be gaining height.
Canson said on 23/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: lol that’s a good question. I didn’t measure as often then and didn’t keep the same track but I think it did narrow from back then. I’ve heard it’s supposed to. Now for yours it may not if you continue to grow though. As far as a pair of flats, usually 1/2” or 5/8” for some canvas shoes or boat like shoes. That would keep you at 6’6 in shoes.
Canson said on 23/Apr/19
@Bobby: I would almost define it as solid. I give a person who doesn’t dip under a mark solid then textbook as something like 7/8” at a low
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Apr/19
@ Connor - Well, happy Easter to you! Guess what I'm listening to right now? It's 'Rattus Norvegicus' by 'The Stranglers'! It's extremely rude and also very funny! 😊
Jdubbz said on 23/Apr/19

I should get some flats. How much do they typically add, like 1.5cm? Most of my shoes add about 1.2-1.25", so I'm 2 meters in them for a decent chunk of the day, and mid 199 range at my low. As far as shrinkage goes, I lose about 7/8" these days, maybe a mm less. Less would be cool, but then again I really don't care about maintaining morning height at this point lol. Back when I was like 6'3.75 1-2 years ago, it would have made a bigger difference. Not sure if you kept track of your height when you were younger, but do you know if your variance has narrowed at 37 compared to early to mid 20s?
Bobby 5'10 (178) said on 22/Apr/19

What do you define textbook as? Just flat?
Myself said on 22/Apr/19
Yeah man, but claiming 6'4 for me is not as honest as 193 cm, even though claiming 192 is even less honest, while 192.5 lacks casualness. But at least I will still be more honest than most people around me if we consider that everybody inflates by multiple centimeters!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Apr/19
@ Connor - Hiya! I'm listening to 'Rattus Norvegicus' by 'The Stranglers'. It's kind of funny, in a sick sort of way! You've gotta hear it!

Hey Rob, I'm 5'10.75 at my low, amd my mom comes barley below my nose, and 5'4 was always her height claim. Do you think 5'4.5 is a possibility? I think it is normal for women to round down half an inch just as it is to round up. I think my head's 9 to 9.25 inches.
Editor Rob
I would say 5ft 4 or a bit over is possible. Some people do drop the fraction in conversation.
Csimpson6ft said on 22/Apr/19
@ Miss Sandy Cowell it's not too bad now just a bit numb but yeah im sure it will recover in time, I measured myself last night and I'm still the same height so it's all good, hope you're having a good week Sandy, bye for now!
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: I think a weak 6’6” while a bit much is still enough to keep you around 6’6” as long as you’re in flats. I think anything above maybe 197 is where you really have the problems. Meaning when you hit 199 in shoes. I’d say above about 197.5 when you’re into the textbook 6’6” zone
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: yea I agree with everything you said. Assuming that, for you, 198.7 is an out of bed, you being 6’5.33ish is about right at a low. You’re approaching the “lose an inch” category. A normal low for you could be 2.2cm different whereas an inch less maybe 1.9 cm My two taller friends (6’6 and 6’7) don’t even lose a full inch. Then again they are both older than me. The 6’6” friend is 40 today and the 6’7 will be 40 later in the year. The former loses 2 cm or a mm over as he’s still slightly under 6’7” out of bed maybe 200.4-.5 and 6’6-6’6 1/8 (198.2-.3) and the latter comes to 6’7” flat at a low and is like 6’7 3/4-6’7 7/8 out of bed. Both may have been a mm or so more at their peaks though especially out of bed. I guess some of that depends on proportions and how much muscle is in the back as the 6’7” guy is in impeccable shape and has a very strong core
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
@Myself: I think even at 192.6 or .7 you classify as about a textbook 6’4”. You’re inside of the .75-1” and at 192.7 that puts you around 6’3 7/8”.

What is average there in Tunisia for young men?

You'll heal!
Jdubbz said on 21/Apr/19

I agree, Robert is pretty much straddling the line at 197cm if that's his low. I think there is a tangible difference between a strong 6'5 and a weak 6'6 when it comes to comfort. Seems like one of those breakpoint heights. I'm around 198.7 out of bed now, and in sneaks I actually brush my head on certain doorways. Not just hair, but my skull. Granted, 6'7.5/202cm doorways aren't super common in the US, and it only happens out of bed, so not a huge issue.
Canson said on 21/Apr/19
Happy Easter everyone
Editor Rob
I am typing this on Monday, so I wish everyone a Happy Easter - a good day to buy half price chocolate, I saw one lady this morning with about 10 giant easter eggs in her trolley at Sainsbury's. 🤪

The women was absolutely not Jenny 🤔
Tunman said on 21/Apr/19
Tbh,Big Adam could have pushed really near 6',actually I thought there was 3.5"difference but then it depends how the camera is placed.Also since you're 5'8 3/8"here I guess he's not at his lowest?
Editor Rob
It's about 1.45pm, so the difference was 3.1 inches.

Big Adam may well drop a few mm's under 11.5 by evening.
Myself said on 21/Apr/19
Yeah I am easily around 193.5 when sitting at home, even after having reached my low previously. But it looks like my low is 192.7-8, sometimes 192.6; the latter expecially if I try too hard to stand straight, when I'm already tired, and lose those 1 or 2 mm, not being able to stand as tall as I did 5 seconds earlier!

Thanks. Yeah I guess it's true, but another half a centimeter would've been ideal and I wouldn't have remorse claiming 193 cm while being a little under it...even though everybody else lies by multiple centimeters!
But at 196 I don't see how you can be too tall compared to someone like me; it's probably the sweet spot between being always the biggest but not experiencing as many side effects as someone a couple cms taller.
Csimpson6ft said on 21/Apr/19
Rob I strained my neck in my sleep last night, It doesn't hurt or feel like it's been injured but I don't know, could that lead to height loss? I'm a bit worried about that
Editor Rob
I doubt it has caused height loss.
Nik said on 21/Apr/19
@ Sandy Cowell - No problem, it is a pleasure!
Canson said on 21/Apr/19
@Robert197cm: I would say that where you are currently is probably the ceiling for comfort though. Once you’ve exceeded the 6’7” mark in shoes it’s a bit burdensome with doorways. I only know from having friends that size 6’6 barefoot at a low and 6’7 at a low and me putting on some steel toed boots early morning (6’5 out of bed) and my head touching the 6’6.5 light fixture in my hallway. But push comes to shove I’d take my current height of 6’4 (6’4.25) over anything taller
Csimpson6ft said on 21/Apr/19
Rob how tall would I look with Adam? 5'11.5 guys eyelevel would appear just under mine right or maybe a bit less?
Editor Rob
In photos you would look close, but you measure half inch taller.

There was a more obvious difference between lewis/adam in person...but if that goes to half inch, it starts to become less obvious to people.
Andrea said on 21/Apr/19
Actually, (again, considering you're nearer 174 than 173 there), Big Adam can look very near 6' in that single moment (the picture you've posted for Bobby)...
And yeah, I do remember you posted a photo of him a couple of years ago and said he was 5'11, so he hasn't really grown that much since then. It will be interesting to see if he reaches at least 6'... Also, if I'm not mistaken, his parents are both 5'7 range, and his brother is the 184 range challenger guy, right?
Editor Rob
Yes his HC brother has a different Father, who is 6ft 2 range, whilst Big Adam has 5ft 7ish Father.
Serph king said on 21/Apr/19
Hey rob i would like to ask you something, i got measured the other day at night about 9pm and i was 177cm on dot, what do you think shall i claim? 178 or 177? Because obviously I'll be a little more during the day time.
Editor Rob
Let's say you go for an appointment at 11am - and they measure you 177.8cm - most guys would be claiming 178, so it's not that unreasonable.

But if you were modest and didn't like to claim a height you fall under, then saying 177 isn't wrong either. Of course then you have another proportion of people who measure themselves first thing out of bed and claim 179!

@ Christian 6'5 3/8:

I'm definitely becoming one of those people. I'm 6'5-6'6 atm as well, and I've been gradually getting used to it. It's a nice height tbh, taller than the vast majority of tall people but not gigantic or freakish at all. I know you don't really gain any satisfaction from "height mogging", but it's kind of cool to see that I'm now the same height or taller than people who used to be taller than me at the beginning of the year. I honestly can't think of any negatives as compared to when I was 6'3.75 or 6'4.25 aside from my inseam increasing a bit and legroom becoming slightly more of an issue. Nothing wrong with 192.6 or however tall Myself is though, that's probably more ideal than 196.5 from the perspective of most people.
Bobby 5'10 (178) said on 20/Apr/19
I thought Big Adam was nearer 5'11 than 5'11.5. I was surprised that he measured a big 5'11 under the stadiometer.
Editor Rob
You know I'm a solid 5ft 8 3/8ths range as mentioned in the video, and he's 2.5 inches taller? 🙀

"I thought Big Adam was nearer 5'11" 🙂

Hold on a minute...🤔

"[Peter] looks 6'1 compared to Rob though" 🤨

Let me check that out. 😎

I'm taller with Adam than with Peter, 5ft 8 3/8ths to 1/2 range as measured 5 minutes before by Lewis. Here's a close up Of my Height.

I am not taller than 5ft 8.25 at LFCC, given I'm on feet since 7.30 and working too.
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 20/Apr/19
Rob, are you agree if i say 5ft7.5 inch for man is start to tall in country like Indonesia?
Editor Rob
Yes, I'm sure near 5ft 8 in a country like Indonesia will mean you begin to feel tall.
Csimpson6ft said on 20/Apr/19
I watched the video, I thought he was 5'11.5.
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Myself: if you’re 194.7-.8 out of bed you still have a chance at 193 flat or within 1/8” of it. I typically on a non-gym day lose 1.9cm. On a more relaxed day I could probably hold 193.9-194 but more relaxed meaning if I sit reclined a lot
Nik Ashton said on 20/Apr/19
@ Sandy Cowell - Happy Easter to you and your loved ones too!

Your Easter wishes are very much appreciated and I like your emojis too! 🥚 🐇🐣👍🐣🐇🥚!
Andrea said on 20/Apr/19
Nice, Rob! 👍
I would have guessed him 3 solid inches taller than you, so 5'11.5 totally makes sense (considering that you're nearer 174 than 173 there). Which celebrities you've met do you think would measure very similar to him?
Btw, Happy Easter! 🐣🐇🥚 😀
Editor Rob

When he visited for this measurement I said to him when we were chatting that he might not be far off six foot...after I was measured I thought he had a chance of getting 182cm.

Jenny thought he looked taller too, but he was already 5ft 11 age 15, so he's not grown now 1 month shy of 17th birthday.

I think a guy like michael biehn (10 years ago) looked around that height range.

And I'm going to stick with Matt Smith measuring that mark.

it's an interesting height for actors. 99% will round up.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Apr/19
I think it's a good thing that you're not growing anymore. Maybe not everyone thinks that way, as some like the idea of being super tall. You've said before that you'd love to be 6'7"-6'8", and that may sound awesome on paper, but once you're actually that height, you'll quickly realize that the negatives outweigh the positives. Even at barely 6'5"-6'6", I don't wanna be any taller.
Bobby 5'10 (178) said on 19/Apr/19
Rob, what would you expect the eye level of an official dwarf to be as in the case of those in the 3ft range? Is an eye level under 4 inches possible?
Editor Rob
Some have normal size skulls, but there are those with smaller sized skulls and thus higher eylevels.
6james94 said on 19/Apr/19
This might sound crazy but what can be a way where I can seal the deal that I'm 5'9" or 175cm and not worry about being shorter? I've measured myself a lot and consistently got the same heights as usual during the day 5'9 3/4 to 5'10 in the morning and 5'8 7/8 to 5'9 1/8 depending on how active I'm the lowest I got is like after work at 1 in the morning I got 5'8 3/4. To make sure I'm doing it right what can I do to seal the deal that I'm 5'9" and not worry about being shorter then what I'm measured at?
Editor Rob
It all depends if the place you are measuring is solid and flat - you could always check your height on another room/wall or another house and if you get the same, the odds are that you are about 5ft 9.
Nik said on 19/Apr/19
@ Rob - How tall is Ginny Buckley please?
Editor Rob
Average or near 5ft 4 range, but I haven't really looked much at her.
afzal said on 19/Apr/19
Rob u looks 5.9 to me
c-mo said on 19/Apr/19
Editor Rob : Inches, because he looks to have a bit more looser posture with a lean.


ok rob so if Adamek is 6'1.5 then david tua is 5'8.5 ? david tua is listed as 5'10 but he also had fights where he was listed as 5'9 and even 5'8.5 on one fight . how tall do you think tua is ?
Editor Rob
That's a big variation in height descriptions for him...I haven't looked at either person really.
c-mo said on 18/Apr/19
Would have thought at least 5, maybe more


rob do you mean 5 inches or 5cm ? I am confused . if you mean centimeters then I have to say that 5cm is a big underestimation . the difference seems a lot bigger
Editor Rob

Sakz said on 18/Apr/19
@Andrea Celebheights is indeed a forum as it's a public site where people can post about a topic. I don't visit any other forums either, though I have come across some in the past. I completely agree and for that reason I believe sites like this are more suited to those who have a casual interest in height, and aren't obsessed to the point insecurity takes over and causes problems. However this is a public forum after all so of course anyone is free to visit or post as they please.
ulaix said on 18/Apr/19
@Bobby 5'10 (178)
In all his movies looks in the 5'9 range. I never see him that tall (5'10ish) and yes he might be closer to 5'9.5 I really doubt he lost 1/4 since his 20's but 1/8 is a possibility. He is still young
Bobby 5'10 (178) said on 17/Apr/19

He can seem 5'10ish in the older Jason Bourne movies when he was like in his 20s-30s, but I think he's lost a fraction since then. He also doesn't have the best proportions and often seems shorter because of it. I don't know if he's my range exactly as I think I could edge him out if we met, but you never know. He's 48 years old currently, so I don't think he's old enough to have lost anything major, but he might have lost 1/8 to 1/4 since his 20s. I don't know exactly. He might be closer to 5'9.5 than 5'9.75-5'10 range.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Apr/19
Hi Bobby!

It's great to hear from you so quickly; yes, I have been seriously getting into history lately, because, unless I'm presented with a particularly good film, I cannot concentrate because I am worried about my poor Dad. It'll be his Birthday on Saturday, and he'll be spending it in hospital. He really rated the film 'The Da Vinci Code', so I know he'd like the two follow-ups and has an interest in the sort of things you are studying.

With the exception of the DVD I have just started, all the material I have been watching of late has been by 'Blackadder' actor Tony Robinson, who is only 5ft4, but doesn't let it hold him back in the productivity department. He is a comedian too and I have just ordered a DVD of him doing stand-up comedy, which has 5 stars. When I finished 'Gods and Monsters', I thought "There are more episodes than THAT!"

Sure enough, there are, and they are entitled 'Gods', 'Witches' and 'Disease'. The ones I've just seen are called 'The Undead' and 'Evil Spirits', and both were equally interesting, and soon I will have a box set containing the lot, and they are so entertaining that I know I will be seeing them again and again. In 'The Undead', you find out how medieval man was so afraid of corpses that, in the case of one murderer who committed suicide, his body was dragged through the streets and a stake driven through him to pin him down to make sure he wouldn't rise up again. A man's soul was believed to be cursed if certain rites weren't said at the time of his death. In fact, some of these weird practices were still very much around in the 19th Century.

It was also Tony's series of 'Crime and Punishment' that I saw. That was fascinating, and I might even take my Viking documentary off in favour of watching it again tonight!

You mention Socrates, the ill-fated Greek philosopher who was condemned to death for corrupting young people. My, that's going back to 470-399 years BC, and although I don't know as much about him as I'd like to, I do know that two of his students, Plato, who lived to 80 and Xenophon, who lived to 77, wrote about his teachings. It is recorded that Socrates saved the life of Xenophon when he fell from his horse. Socrates was put to death in a very non-bloody way, by having to drink a poisoned beverage. It makes you think how far advanced the Greeks were and that mankind got infinitely worse before he became civilised.

Urgh! Tony Robinson described how people condemned to death or those who died before their time through murder or suicide, were believed to have a certain life-force still present in their bodies, and sick people would lick the blood from severed heads at executions in the hope that it would revive them. Well, I never knew that! You can pick up your own copy of 'Gods and Monsters' on eBay or Amazon for next to nothing if it's second hand, and I'm sure you'll be as hooked as I am. Just type in the words Tony Robinson Gods and Monsters, and if you want his Crime and Punishment series, TR Crime and Punishment. He is ever so entertaining, being a comedian as well as an historian. I haven't been able to leave his Celebheights page alone while watching his documentaries and I watched all of 'Blackadder' recently as well. You will know of actor Hugh Laurie. Well, he was in 'Blackadder' too!

As always, it's been a pleasure to 'chat' with you Bobby,

All the very best,

Sandy xxx 😊👍

To be honest, aside from Celebheights (is it a forum?), I don't visit many forums, but I do see what you mean, Sakz. Though I think that a site like this, that concerns height (so a subject that can be very sensitive for many, obviously), is more likely to attract those kind of people than the majority of other sites...
