Are you happy with your height? For me, I wish I was taller. I am only 160cm tall :( Or at least I could grow 5cm taller, that is my ideal height. Tell me what you think about your height. Did you ever wish you were taller or shorter than you are? Some people dream of being a professional basket ball player or a fashion model, if only they were taller. Others wish they were shorter because they literally stand out in a crowd. Share with me please.

Before I met my husband, I never think of my desired height. But now, I wish I could "look" shorter. I am about your height also but I just do not know why, most of them said I looked tall (although I am a short) and my girl got the gene from me. In fact, I just got this comment from my neighbour. She said, my husband is shorter than me. If my husband was there, I guess he will feel embarrassed with the scene. Actually I need my husband when I am trying to reach something high. He is taller than me, but he "look" short.

Hello Shuet Yeng, Thanks for your response. You are about my height? But how come no one tell me I am tall? In fact, my hub says I am short and he prays that my daughter will not get my gene, He likes tall girl... For your hub, what is his height? Sometimes, man can look shorter though they aren't short. This could happen if they are plump or fat. Thin people look more taller. My hub looked very tall before we get married. After married, he gain weight a lot and I can see he looks shorter now, LOL.

Hi VingYan, first of all, wishing you a very Happy Mid Autumn Festival. Any celebration for the event? For me, I will be back to my parent's place and have dinner with them. Back to the topic...my husband just told me that I am only 158cm and NOT 160cm. My husband just used the measuring tape to measure for me the other day, so he knew my height better, LOL! The actual fact is, I am shorter than you. I have no idea too why others said that I am tall but actually I am not. Maybe they have seen my husband before, that's why they have such a statement. My husband is 160cm. I think he looked much taller last time, but now he has grow fat, so this make him look shorter. Actually it is a good news for me and you that our husband do gained some weight after they got married. Indirectly meaning they are happy with the food that we cooked for them, LOL!

I am 5foot 7 inches tall, I think I am pretty happy with my height, tall enough to do a lot of stuff and good enough to put on lots of clothes, I think one of the advantages of being tall as a girl is to we look slimmer and nice to wear some clothes and I am very happy about that :-)

Hello Mermaidivy, Thanks for your response. There are many advantages of having good height You look different and special as compares to other if you are tall. Glad that you have an ideal height. 5 feet 7 inches is an ideal height for almost all the lady. It is just nice to qualify for a model or air stewards. You sure look dainty and delicate and great in all of your clothes.

Hey, Yea I am reasonably happy with my height, but the only bad thing is that I think I might have stopped growing. And where I come from, everyone is starting to get taller than me, and I am starting to feel short. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I am 5' 1" and sometimes wish I was a couple of inches taller. Disadvantages are that I have trouble reaching things so a step stool is needed sometimes. If you are short and put on a couple of pounds it shows alot more that if you are taller. You get short jokes all the time. Too bad I don't like to wear high heels because that would help I guess. I find them very uncomfortable besides I am pretty much a t-shirt and jeans kinda girl. i am happy with who I am but on occassion it would be helpful if I was taller.

When I was younger I always wished that I was shorter..I was 5ft6inches and I always thought I was too tall..Now I am older and I have started shrinking..I had to have tests done for health reasons and they measured my height and I am now around 5feet 5inches tall..If you live long enough you will shrink.(LOL)

Hello Celineml, Thanks for your response ! I know every lady just want a perfect and ideal height! But of course we can't do anything about our height. As long as we are healthy we should count our blessing on what we have. Perhaps you can wear heels when you hang out with your taller girl friend, ! I am not that tall too. I used to wear heels when I go out with friends or works. But now I have 2 kids I prefer to wear something more comfortable and flat, so it is easy to walk and look after the kids when we are out side.

I think I'm the shortest one so far who responded to this. I'm 4'11 and to be honest I'm not contented but I've learnt to love my height despite of being short for my age. I wish I was much taller, ideally 5'3-5'5.

Hi Lizzrr, I am sorry that I am not meaning to hurt some one. Yes, I agree with you, we have to appreciate what we have.What is more important is the health. You stay well and happy

I am happy with my height. For a girl I think 171 cms is ok. When I was in school, I was one of the tallest kids in class always being one of the last students when we needed to form a queue.That was when I used to wish I was shorter.I used to think I would grow up to be super tall. But then I stopped at 171cms luckily and I am glad! So I am neither too tall, nor short.I know girls taller than me and shorter than me too.

I am happy with my height, 5'3", not very tall but not short. This is the standard height here in our country. I dont want to be tall like basketball players. Girls should not be tall than boys.

I wish I was about 3 inches taller. I would feel better. my boyfriend is 6'3" and I am 5'6" so I am a little short compared to him. But if I grew just a few more inches I would still be able to wear stilletos and be as tall as him :) yippee. I dont think it is going to happen now though :) If it did i wouldn't be too impressed. I have about 60 pairs of jeans I would have to replace/

I'm 160cm too, Vignyan ... and it doesn't worry me. One of my daughters wanted to be a fighter pilot though, and she wasn't tall enough. She was pretty mad about that!
