This is the poll for WOMEN - please see the other thread for MEN.

Please select your current height so that we have a proper survey of the heights of the women in our community.

You can only see the results once you vote :)

So far (based on a few responses) the bell for women seems to be formed around the 5'0" mark, which is consistent my expectations, and experiences of meeting women who have done or want to do LL.

I'd like to ask why some of you want to be taller than say 5'4? I've seen some women on this board wanting to be 5'10.. i don't think most men find women that tall particularly attractive. I think you are more likely hurting your chances with the opposite sex by going taller. So what's the motivation for wanting such height increase?

It would be interesting to see a thread for women on their goal height and what they think the ideal height is.

However, around 5'10 is the perfect model height - just tall enough to be significant yet as short as possible to decrease chances of being the dominant of the sexes. You must also realize that the ideal male height for women and men is likely around 6'0"-6'4", so they don't hurt the chances for the ideal range even though the average height is less. They don't want average if they don't have to have it, and that is not difficult to understand.

It only becomes more complicated when the average is the ideal range, in which case your point would have less merit than it does.

It's all about ideal and average ranges.

I'd be happy if i was 5ft it certainly would make my life easier

And that is understandable because of the practicality considering your current height of 4'8". Though, if you calculate your sitting height and arm span you will be able to do the math to let you know if you can practically lengthen your legs more than 4 inches to 5'0" towards 6+ inches to 5'2" or more in context with average statistics.

But, the point I was making in regards to shrimp is that since around 5'10" is ideal then any woman who could practically attain that height is likely to want it.

5'10 may be ideal for magazines but not for life, men generally prefer women in the 5'2-5'6 range. (don't make me go digging for studies)

Studies would help the validity of your range. But what's more important is that our points are not mutually exclusive unless you want to discuss ranges.

My point is the difference between ideal and average, which is tied to preferences that you initially addressed and practicality that I pointed out.

While I prefer a full package of brain and looks, I would certainly prefer a 5'10 woman and the fact that they tend to be in magazines more than any other height lends credence to the idea that most would. Likewise, these women are likely interested in men taller than them without care for the larger dating pool of men of equal or less height ... which gives you the answer you were initially curious about.

And I'd prefer women on the shorter spectrum, too bad neither of us is a proper sample. Among guys I know, all would go for the under 5'6 crowd, given the choice. I'd love to see a study of male preference for ideal female height though. I'd bet ten bucks it'll be under 5'8 for sure, probably 5'6.

You have to keep in mind that the study would have to discount bias. In order to discount bias, the study would have to be incredibly elaborate or the study would have to simply be compared to another study or other studies on order to be complete. It's all about ranges and psychology.

I'd like a woman 5'10" to 6'0". Not only is the woman more physically appealing to me, but she is more appealing from a genetic perspective since I'd want my kids to be naturally tall. However, I'd also want to be at least 6'0" to be with her and she'd likely want me to be of that height as well.

Most guys want women the same height or more often shorter than them (and the proportional inverse for the women), genetics be damned and Cosmetic Limb Lengthening aside. Therefore, it is likely that among shorter populations of men, they would prefer shorter women regardless of ideals. This bias would have to be counted for in any study that was not misleading.

Men would normally specify their height when compared to their own, 4-6 inches shorter than themselves for example. There would be nothing particularly difficult about making a survey of a few hundred men, asking their preferred height offset and their own height. The result would yield both the offset and the overall desired average for women.

Ive found the women im most attracted to are those around 6inches shorter than me. Which is quite rare anywhere esp in the UK, seeing as im only 5'6 or 5'7 with lifts.

With age most people will put on weight. And women who are tall (above 5.7) don't look attractive after they put on wieght. They start to resemble construction workers. Hence I agree with the above post and puzzled as to why women want to be 5.10 which is above the average height of men.  Likewise I would be preplexed if a guy wanted to go beyond 6.4 through LL.

Smaller women (4.10 - 5.5) are attractive to men in general - I have seen often a girl who may not be so pretty but because she is small and slim, she can look cute, and compensate for her looks. Of course personality is also another factor.

I think women from 5`7 to 5`9 are the most attractive,and alot of people i know feel the same way.The most attractive women on earth always seem to be 5`7 which is weird.I dont know any guy who thinks a 4`10 woman is more attractive  :o


Title: Re: How tall are you? WOMEN ONLY

I would say most men think 5.2-5.7 is the best. The idea height I think is 5.4/5"

Post by: MMTA on October 21, 2008, 10:52:13 AM
It's proven in several studies that 5'3" is the most desired height for women... However, remember that men who are short will naturally prefer taller women in the (conscious or sub-conscious) desire to have taller children, so the heights given on this forum will be much greater.

Guys over 6ft tall don't care how tall their partners are as height has never been an issue for them.

I know that if two girls walk on the street and both are pretty and slim,but one is 5'8" and one is 5" ..you guys have eyes for the taller one.
So what you write above just remainds me that I AM RIGHT. :(
Sure,pettite girls can be cute and all...but  taller girls will ALWAYS catch your eyes. ::)
Yes,5'7'' is tall in my opinion,I would love to be that tall...but it's hard. :-\

5'' is too short. but if a guy sees a 5''5 and a 5''8 girl, both good looking, i think they will be more likely to pick the 5''5.

I TOTALLY AGREE!!! I am very similar to you, I am 5.3 and no matter how hard I try I can't come to terms with it either. I just want to find the safest and most affordable place to have it done. Allot of my friends are taller than me- and i know taller girls are always perceived as being more attractive- if a girl is short and pritty she does not make as much impact as if she is tall and prity :( well this is my view

Hi all,

I had my husband measure me when I got up today, since I read on the boards that that is when I will be at my tallest.

I was exactly 5' 1/4", which is also exactly 153 cm.  I was very surprised; I didn't think I was over 5' tall at all.  I have always told people I am just under 5' tall.  So I felt better about my height than I expected.

If just that little increase makes me feel better, I can only imagine how great I would feel if I could add two or three inches to my height through LL.  I think I'd be on top of the world! 

China, who would love to just approach average height for women, which would be possible with one LL procedure

hi

 I am 5ft , i am going for approx 6cm as that is the safest lengthening amount to have,

 so i will be approx 5'3 ft - not a bad height ,

 i mean i can wear heels and be taller,
 average height for women in UK is 5'4 - so im just under. Plus i know people who wear heels all the time , so nobody really realises.

There are a lot of famous people who are 5'3 and are considered to be HOT!! Cheryl Cole for one , shes only 5'3 , Kim kardasian
I think taller girls are considered prettier , but i was reading a mens magazine , which had a poll on ideal womens height ( it was 5'4-5'5) so i mean thats the ideal that men seem to have in uk.

I also know that some men lie about their height, like there are 3 people with different heights who all claim their 6ft !!! LOL im just like "sure"....

I do want to marry a taller man , as my children need to have some hope!!! LOL i mean height actually matters a lot!!esp in UK where looks matter a lot.

xxx im thinking of going to Serbia for 6cm btw xxx

I am 1.59 cm (5.2). And that's really too short for a western woman. In my opinion 1.67 cm is the ideal height for a woman. Because 1.67 cm is the average. And let's face it, be honest, the average is always the best. Too tall isn't attractive either!

I don't think it's the height thing that bothers me (although it is hard to be the shortest person in the office and have a step-stool at home and the office) as much as the proportion between my torso and my legs.   THAT is what bothers me the most!  My torso is much longer than the length of my legs and it bother me to have such short legs.   Also, shopping for pants is torture - as we all know.   Even the petite jeans are too long and I have to go to my faithful tailor to get them shortened.

Look ladies....unless you are a midget...no man cares about your height, especially if you are taller than 5'0...men care only if you are too tall.  I ensure you any problems you have with men comes from your looks not your height.  Stop the madness, if you are 5'0 and you want to date the guy who is 6'2'' and you think he wont go for you unless you are taller...get real, so what??   there are so many men of average height that would be just as good for you.  I dont mean to put people down but I am doing LL right now and its not a cake walk and expensive....and unless you have some really weird body proprtion, as a woman I just dont see it as worth it.

Women should really consider other cosmetic procedures if they want to become more appealing.  I think a woman who thinks she is short is better off getting a nose job or breast enhancement than LL.

I couldn't possibly disagree with you more Slicker. Everyone doing LL does it to make a positive change on their life. I could just as easily demean your reasons for doing LL with simple logic. No one really NEEDS LL, well unless they have dwarfism maybe, it's to achieve something they never could otherwise, height. Everyone does it for personal reasons, and they can vary.

As far as your logic goes, I personally think around 5'5" is perfect for women. Those that are under 5' tend to get a stumpy look if they put on any weight at all. The hottest girl I ever dated was 5'8" or 5'9" barefoot. Generally, any guys that love long legs enjoy a taller woman. There's a reason runway models are all over a certain height. So don't act like men need LL and women are just crazy.


Title: Re: How tall are you? WOMEN ONLY
Post by: SLICKER on March 01, 2010, 06:26:55 AM
College boy,

Of course everyone does it for there own reasons...but there isnt as big of a societal stigma on women to have height as men....and that you have to confess.

And since I assume you are a man...you cant tell me that you would take a plain looking girl that was 5'5" over a girl that was "hot" like your kinda hot who was 5'1"....and to compare that to how women see men is night and day...women will choose a plain man who is above average height than a man who is handsome and "short"...so its not the same thing.

are women crazy for doing this for height?  I dont know...but I do know that I know a bunch of tall guys 6'0" with a bunch of short girlfriends...really doesnt seem that height is a big factor for those men...I dont know...maybe I am bitter...but LL is BREAKING YOUR LEGS AND HAVING THEM PULLED APART, not to mention the realitve cost of the procedure and time it takes away from your life...all that for what purpose??  My argument is that men have an emotional need for doing LL in the west...women have an emotional want...look this isnt getting a make over, i am doing it right now--its not a cake walk.. and I think there is a MASSIVE difference over a short man getting LL...than a woman who is already average female height doing it...a waste of her time, money, and health, just so she can feel speical versus a man who will be DISCRIMINATED against it his whole life.

At 4'11.5" I don't like feeling small, because I would say it gives me an inferiority complex. I don't like being the shortest one in a group or even one of the shortest in a group of people, but mostly I don't like the feeling of being short. I would be content at 5"2", but my dream height would be 5'5".

For women it is most likely because it effects them in ways other than just men. Women can be discriminated against just as much or made fun of for being tiny. They are also less likely to garner as much respect as taller women in business. Psychologically it has to be a huge boost to their personal confidence, and even their presence when they enter a room after LL. Plus, look at the woman who has to use a step stool at work and home just to reach basic cabinets! Do you really think that would be fun? Being under 5' raises a host of problems you would probably never understand just being a short man. I'm sure a short woman has their own trials and tribulations, along with a host of reasons for wanting LL. Oh and hey, guess what. My legs WERE BROKEN AND PULLED APART as well, and I'm further along than you. LL is not that strange for a woman to get, I thoroughly enjoyed Bianca's diary here. So just stop the negativity and let people do what they want  ;)

When a woman wants limb lengthening it does not mean she is crazy. There could be some confidence issues going on. Limb lengthening as well as other types of cosmetic procedures do not necessarily have to be for impressing the opposite sex, or to expand the dating pool, or to help with making more money, but can be for other personal reasons, as in needing more or better self confidence. Just like any other cosmetic procedure if a woman is not happy with her height or physical appearance and it seem to seriously affect her life somehow and there's a cosmetic procedure that can help with that, than she should do whatever it is that makes her feel better about herself.  I know there are men here who are interested in LL for better confidence, and woman should be able to feel proud, secure, and confident if that's what LL will provide them. And maybe there's a threshhold for shortness...anything under 5'0 for a woman is very very very bad. :'( :'(

I agree with GalaxyStar-Everybody can have their own personal reasons for pursuing LL, it doesn't have to be done just to look more pleasing to the opposite sex. Each to their own I say.

Just like any other cosmetic procedure

LL is not just any other cosmetic procedure...you are turning yourself into a cripple; it amazes me the light approach some have to having their LEGS BROKEN...I did LL cause I am discriminated against by most of the opposite sex who write me off for being short, as proved by the unlimited amount of research data that MMT postes on these forums...I think a sense of neccisity should drive people to LL...versus..the "it would make me feel special" attitude...cause when you have two broken legs and will spend months as a cripple and at times in constant pain...you'd better have a real motivation.

Obviuosly people are going to do what they want to...and yes people will be "each to their own"...but LL is not easy...its expensive for most...and you need to be ready to be a cripple for a year of your life...the issue is exterenal factors that address how you feel in real life...and the factors that we make in our minds...and yes having the opposite sex at times reject you on your height alone is an external factor that will influence the way you feel and is hard to over come...being a short woman is a one hundred percent mental thing...no man is discriminating against you cause you are 5 foot nothing...and society doesnt either...for god's sakes just where some heels...this is one hundred percent in your mind....

sounds like a good reason to get LL as far as i am concerned...how would this sound in a psych consultation...."i would like to have my legs broken so i dont need to use a step stool anymore".  This is my point, you may take it as negativity and I dont care...make my credability -1000 ( i am suprised that people actually take time to do that) but it is the casualness that some approach LL that really has to make you wander about their motivation. and that is my only point...I think we are crossing an ethical boundry when we have our legs broken for "casual reasons".

Wow, you completely missed my point. Tell me, how would this sound in a psych consultation: "I would like to have my legs broken so women will like me." You speak of a psychological necessity for LL driving you to go through with the operation. That's indicative of poor mental health on your part. LL is necessary for you to live and to procreate with the opposite sex? Lengthening will not suddenly make women love you, it will not make doors open, it will not make you succesful, it will not complete you. It will help you in those goals, but it is certainly not an end all be all, nor a "necessity."

Think of it like an athlete training for the olympics. It may be grueling, demanding, and at times painful... but it is to achieve a dream. It's to bring out the best in you, to enhance who you are. It doesn't define who you are. Part of being a good candidate for LL is good mental health. You sir, fail. By the way, I never touched your credibility. I think it kind of speaks for itself as is. I'm going to leave this argument though. Enjoy your height; I hope it lives up to your expectations.

I'm confused - I thought this board was women only to discuss their heights.    Anyway, just to clarify, I am married and am not interested in attracting men.   That is not my purpose of pursuing LL.   I want to be taller so that I can fit into pants, reach objects in cabinets and not suffer from the knee pains/feet pains of wearing heels.   Currently, I have to get petite pants tailored, I have trouble with my knees because I can't sit correctly in chairs since my tibias are short, and I often have to ask people to help me get items down from the cabinets or luggage bins.   I live in NYC so everything is built up to create more storage space and it always leaves me at a disadvantage.   I can't even reach my microwave without a step-stool.  I take the subway everyday and I have trouble reaching the strap hangers.   My feet are wide so I have trouble wearing normal shoes so sneakers/flats are necessary.   This is not just about appearance although I have to admit that my proportions do bother me because I can't correct them with heels as most women do.   My proportions make it awkward to sit on the ground since I always hunch over since I have a long torso.  I often have the experience of meeting people while sitting and having them be confused by my height when I stand up.   This was especially embarrassing when I was dating.   I have the upper body of a woman who is meant to be about 5'4" but my legs totally ruin it for me.

i still dont understand why women want to be taller; pretty much every guy around here I know is way more attracted to petite girls than taller girls


You may be correct in saying that most guys are attracted to petite girls, but that is besides the point.  I'm around 5'2'' and for me, going through with this decision has nothing to do with the opposite sex.  Guys on here have to stop assuming that woman want to undergo this procedure to attract more male attention! Seriously, like wtf?! It's totally about how I feel about myself, and how I see myself.  I want long legs.  I want to be taller.  I don't care if guys don't look at me, or find me attractive after I'm a few inches taller.  As long as I am taller - that's all that matters to me!

Women should really consider other cosmetic procedures if they want to become more appealing.   I think a woman who thinks she is short is better off getting a nose job or breast enhancement than LL. 

If people have the money, will, and mental strength to undergo the procedure, then i don't think anyone has the right to be a judge to their reasons for wanting to do so! Stop being sexist guys!  :o

My mother, older sister, and niece are really short: 152 cm, 5 feet tall. I've never heard them talk about their diminuitive statures before. And for what it's worth, my sister and niece (her daughter) always date giant redwoods. I remember in high school when my sister came back from college with her 185-190 boyfriend. I thought it looked ridiculous. Her relationships with tall men never last, though.

I agree up to a point, but getting taller makes a woman statistically LESS attractive and there have been several instances of women being rejected by their partners after becoming taller.

Women need to think long and hard about whether or not there will actually be any benefits from the procedure; the risks are doubly high for women - every extra CM reduces the number of men who will find a woman attractive by hundreds of thousands :)

Do you think this is because some women exaggerate the lengthening resulting in bad proportion? Or is it because men generally prefer petite as opposed to tall?

This is not a "risk", we don't need hundreds of thousands men.  :o . We just want to become taller, we want long legs, and we want to feel better about ourselves. Men and women have very different motivations.

ok being a women it is also important to be tall and to keep the proportion to look attractive. .  im 5ft tall and i get discrimination as well. .  i work at a bar and people sometimes make mean comments such as. . .  do you need a stool to reach that or. .  hey your so short let me get it for you. .  so yes we do have alot of discrimination for being short. .  and being a short female we aren't taken seriously. .  where as a short male will still has more assertive power then a short female. .  and how short can a short male be? like 5'5 or 5'6. .  short females are even shorter so we do have insecurity issues that people point out from time to time and it makes it very frustration and with the fact that alot of males who come out of LL has increased their standards on females after they become taller. .  we have just as much discrimination of being short as you guys so don't criticize!  ne way i got a question. . 

If i was to do 6 cm on my tibia's and wear high heels will this significantly change my proportions because i love wearing high heels and because im lengthening my tibia's and the heels lengthen the tibia's as well i just want to know what it would look like from a female perspective. .  anyone?

Proportions would not be off at all with that amount of lengthening (6cm lengthening + 6cm heels). People are very used to seeing women with super long legs anyway, heck there are even some woman who seem as if that's all they are is all legs.

I myself am so burnt out on heels I will plan to burn every pair, and then have peace knowing I won't have to rely on them for my artificial/fake height ever again.

Hi Goman-
It's good that you were secure enough to not have to rely on heels/lifts at all but some of us here seriosly rely on them and can't function without them and then when it come time to take the heels/lifts off we do not feel like the same person anymore.  ;)I always hate this and even am convinced that I should have been 2-3 inches taller if circumstances had came out diiferent. :)

Hi Tramp-
 
I'm still undecided between Beijing, Syria and even Armenia has my interest now. Dr. Mirzoyan sadly though will be be traveling till March. If I havent decided within six months I will pull straws to make my decision, go with my choice and no turning back. I have known about this surgury since 1987 and once I finally have it I know I am going to feel like an utterly and complete fool for waiting so long. :D :D

Sorry if there were any offense in my post.  Though I did not wear heels (which technically would have made me a transvestite if I did), please be careful about relying on height to feel security, if that is what you were saying.  I completely agree that there are many people on this site who were predisposed to be a significantly different height than they ended up with.  Some might say "what, you wanna be a basketball player or something?" but really those 5 little centimeters (or more) seem to have somehow put many in a better mental harmony without making LL the freak-show many probably think it is.  You are not alone!    ;D

And it doesnt serve any purpose dwelling on ' what if ' , but instead should be getting busy becoming taller.

I agree with Blanca and mulas.  5'9''-5'10'' is not a threat in finding a man, because
1) there are so many men who are taller than 5'9''-5'10'' (if you are looking for a taller partner) and
2) I assume that 5'9''-5'10'' woman just needs ONE man only!

I just want to add that for many people height is not just one factor in finding a partner.  I have a girlfriend who is 5'10'', and her boyfriend is about 5'8''-5'9''.  None of them are threatened with the other's height - they are a happy couple.  People shouldn't generalize things, it really boils down to individual's preference and how each person sees the world.  If becoming 5'10'' is going to make someone very happy I would say "go for it!".

Height simply isn't as important or transformational for women statistically - getting taller doesn't make women more attractive to men, although it will increase their confidence, which may be much more important for them personally if they lack confidence, or need more 'gravitas' for their careers.

Most glamour models are small (5'3" in the last analysis) and ladies like Carmen Electra and Kylie Minogue don't have to worry about their height at all - beauty and perfect proportions are a lot more valuable, and taller men are proven to prefer smaller women anyway.

Extra height doesn't make women more attractive to men in the way that it makes men much more attractive to women, and so that's why you may see less women concerned about it.


Title: Re: How tall are you? WOMEN ONLY

To quote sunflower: "I definitely have height neurosis (I am 5'7" and female, I feel short, and I obsess over my height)".
"Ideally I would like to be 5'9" to 5'10".   I am very happily married, so the men/dating thing is not an issue for me"

I find it odd how a women over 5'6" can have height issues, and judging from the pool there are many others like her.  While trying to understand this I ask myself why?

1.  Dating reasons? Obviously not the case.  Anyone between 5'5 and 5'7" is perfect for that and the chances to find a man that would reject you just for the sole reason of not being taller are next to impossible.  And if you do actually find that "lonely crusader" it's most likely you'll find him carrying baggage with a lot of issues.  Is he worth it? I think not. 
2.  It makes you more confident? Might be the case but I wonder why? Why would a 5'6" and above girl lack confidence since she's already a few inches taller than most girls? I'm hoping she's not comparing herself with men at this since that would be insignificant.  Both parties have different weapons in their arsenal and to try to use the others means that you don't know how to use yours in the first place.  Better than LL I think is to do some inner searching to find out what are the real reasons for this lack of confidence.  A psychologist is also a great solution to help ask the right questions.  Also, self help books/audiobooks do wanders if treated right. 
3.  I feel nobody takes me seriously.  People don't respect me. This is a common issue for short people so I thought I'd include it also, but just by saying it's a totally false premises since that would imply nobody takes the vast majority of women seriously.
4.  I want to stand out more in the crowd. Might help a bit, but far to little.  You already stand out for being taller than most girls.  Want to stand out even more? Work on your looks, become more fit, learn to be more classy and fun, work on your character, your charisma.  That helps way more and doesn't include risking your health meanwhile.  Hell, even do a boob job or fill your mouth with da vinci veneers if it's the case.  All this also improves your confidence level as well.
5.  I want to become a model. Might help you, but with all honesty it might be a little to late for that if you consider the time it takes you to get the money needed for LL and the time you finish with the recovery.  I too want to become a nba player but beside video games my only real chance is to wait for the next life with my fingers crossed.  :)
6, 7, 8. . . etc.  I just pointed a few reasons that I think are most common, I'm sure there are many others.  And please don't take this the wrong way, if you want to do it, by all means go for it.  It's your decision. 

I would really like to know some of your reasons "sunflower" or of any other girl in this category range.  I'm a curios one and intrigued of things I don't understand.  :)

Hi everybody! I am about 162 cm (5 ft 3 in) and (sorry for the ladies of smaller statures) very unhappy about it.  I live in Germany, where the average height is 167 cm (5 ft 5 1⁄2 in) and is like everyone is taller than me! Lately I got so obsessed with my height that when I go out in the streets I compare my height with everyone else in search of shorter than me to make me feel better!

On the top of that, I was born with thick, bulky calf muscles which really makes it quite unatractive for a woman of my height.  Even in my jeans I feel so unconfortable and high heels makes my calves more bulky :( I also hate when people don't look at me as a woman, but rather as a girl (since my face implies I am a teenager). 

Before I seriously consider LL, I always had issues with my big calves.  Like I was searching methods to make them look leaner and guess what, the only way is to do surgery and remove them! That was so devastating for me, since I don't want to remove my healthy muscles, for the sake of beauty.  Then I started considering height increasment.  I came across your website and really gave me a relief, knowing there are people who made and have positive outcomes and change their life afterwards. .  I don't want to join the club of LL dreamers. . .  I just want to be taller!

or do not recommend girls going through LL if they are around 5'5"
why?
my guess is because they just went through hell so they can get taller, if the women
too go through LL, is like they have never gone through LL xD!
If I ever go through LL it will be so clothes look better on me.
I'm 5'2" and clothes are made really for 5'4" and up. . .
I really don't care that the male pool will go down. . .  why?
all the men I generally get to know are 6' and up. . .
any idea how small I feel?
Plus all my female friends are 5'5" and up xD!
That is the cherry on top that I just need it n_n

First off, don't be so sure men you know are 6' and up, you'd be surprised how the mind plays tricks on you when you literally look up to people. After my LL I've realized many of my friends were not as tall as I though and there wasn't such a huge difference between us to begin with.

I believe the reason men here don't recommend girls 5'5" or above to go through LL is because they don't need it. They will never face any prejudice of any kind because of their height, unlike men. It won't make them more attractive, won't give them more opportunities in their carrier, more respect etc. Some here talk about help in modeling career but even that is very far fetched if you consider age. To have the money you need to have savings which are hardly possible before 20, the operation itself takes at least a year to be able to walk ok, but even more to get your balance (and grace) back, and then there are the scars etc.. It's hard to imagine an agency taking their chance with a model in her mid 20's with no previous experience.

Bottom line, the risks involved, time consumed, money wasted, pain suffered, lies involved (or social stigma if she will not hide it) are simply not worth it. If they feel like giving it a go still, than by all means... we're all here for support.

I can only speak for myself but I couldn't care less about women height, if she's taller than me or not. I've dated girls from very tall (6") to very short (less than 5") even before my LL and will gladly continue to do so.

I am a woman and I want to be 3"-4" taller.  I want to be taller not be attractive to the opposite sex, but for my own personal satisfaction.  Even as a kid, I know I wanted to be this certain height.  My torso and arms are long.  Actually everything about me looks tall except for my short stumpy legs.  Definitely LL will make me look well-proportioned.

Great topic, I enjoyed hearing about how women feel about their height.
I am 5 foot 1, and I think it definitely makes me less attractive.  I'm happy with my face and torso up, I'm thin but my legs look stubby and it throws off my appearance.  I find it very hard to believe that guys don't care about a woman's height, especially if they are 6 foot.  In addition small stature results in an inferior complex especially in the work place.  Women get ridiculed for short stature too.
I don't have the cash for LL, however I don't have any expenses other than my car insurance.  I have $45k saved and would need another $30k to have the surgery in France.  My question here to MML and the forum is do you think carrying a 30K debt at 8 percent will significantly hurt me.  I make $80k a year pre tax but I have the potential to make more in my field.  I'm also fairly old, 32 years.

Hi all,

I was always measured 150cm in school since I was 12 years old. When I was 19, I was even measured 1,49 by a doctor. Now I'm 35 years old and had my appointment with Dr. Betz. Since I have a few health issues with my neck and my feet, Dr. Betz sent me to a colleague of him, who is a specialist for inner medicine and chronicle pain treatment, before I'd get the surgery. This guy, called Dr. Zimmermann, is amazing. He applies alternative medicine and treatments and he gave me homeopathic growth hormones, which act on your pituitary gland. This gland acts on all the organs to improve cell growth. He said, though with a smile in his face, maybe you'll grow a centimeter ;-). I take this hormones for 4 weeks now.
But guys, no joke, I keep on measuring myself for a week now and I measure myself 151,5cm every day!!! Since it was always by night when I measured myself, I thought, well this thing with being taller in the morning does not apply to me, I'm as tall in the morning than in the night. WRONG!
I measured myself this morning immediately out of bed and I was 153,5cm !?!?! Though, 2 hours later I was 151,5cm. Which means, you are taller when you get out of bed, but only 2 hours later, you're smaller!? Anybody can confirm that?
Though if I really grew, then not on my legs, because the pants remain on the same level. There's a chance that I grew 1-2cm after I was 19 years old, cause since the experience with that doctor measuring me on 149cm, I never measured myself again, just telling people I'm 150cm (cause 149cm is even more embarrassing:-().
What do you think? I didn't grow anymore since I was 12 and I got my hand palm revised at 14 years and this doctor said that my growth process is over. So I can hardly imagine, that I did not grow from 12-19 years and then I grew afterwards for 2cm. So I have to believe, that these weird homeopathic growth hormones really worked at the age of 35?? I'm confused!
On the other hand it's quite stupid now, cause I sent all the papers to my health insurance, asking if they cover the costs. Betz wrote on the document, that my actual height is 148cm, cause if you're over 150cm the insurance won't cover ANYTHING.
Now I'm scared a bit, if they ask me for an appointment to check on my height and state of mind, how do I explain the discrepancy between their measurement and Betz'?
One more question: If you do a lot of sports and had a stressful day or so, will you be then even shorter by night? Cause if the insurance calls me for a review, I'll just get up at 4am, go running and clean the house before the appointment, so that they measure me 151,5cm in the morning, allowing me to argue, that I'll be under 150 in the night. Any comments on this?

Greets,
T.

Tess,don't worry I don't think they will call you just to check you height.
And for the grow,yes it's normal,you didn't grow in the bones,but you did grow in your catrilages from that medicine.This growth it's not too much,it will never go over 3-4 cm,and maybe in time it will be gone.When you'll be older.
Can you tell me what is the name of that homeopatic medicine that you take? ;D

Hi Littleangel,

what you say sounds logic, thx for the clearing up and the encouragement for the insurance company. I'm already happy if they do not simply say NO by letter and do not even want to see me ...
About the tiny white pills, sorry, I really did not find out. He has them in a small brown glass bottle and when I was asking for the name, he told me rather some ingredients and a combined Latin name, I'm pretty sure he didn't want to tell me. I first thought they were placebos ;D

Greets,
T.

Hi Tess, those homeopathic growth hormones sound interesting. Do they look like this? May I know what's Dr. Zimmerman's first name?

Anyway, if the insurance people call you up and say they will be measuring you, go wake up really early and lift so many heavy things with your back. LOL. Ouch! That would hurt and you probably will have bad posture for the rest of the day and make you less than 150 cm.

This is just my opinion as a man..

For women who already 5'3 or 5'4.... please DON'T DO LL...

Unless you want a career in catwalk modeling...

You'll ruin your romance chances...

Yup, men like longer legs just like women like taller men, we cannot control what natural selection and evolution has done to our preferences! Unless we have to ability to control natural selection, we are going to have to change ourselves, because no matter what, in general, women are going to like taller men and men are going to be attracted to longer legs.

@Pattymatty: His first name is Bruno. The picture of your pills is maybe taken from veeeery close because my pills are really tiny, not even as big as a baby ladybug. Though the glass bottle looks the same, it could be that! What are those pills on the pic then? So, weight lifting makes you get smaller, not running? Ok, I'll do that then, but being careful not to hurt my back, lol, thx :-).
@Littelangel: got it and replied :-)
About men liking tall women, they can't resist ... I got a flatmate, quite good looking, married 47 years old. When he had a few beers, he always comes home telling: There was this girl talking to me, she was sooooo taaaaaalllllllll, absolutely gorgeous ... He never talks about sweet faces or beautiful hair, just TALL. Since he knows about my surgery he never said that again :-) he's a great guy, my flatmate :-)

It's great to see the ladies represent on the forum. More importantly, more and more women are writing journals of their LL experiences. Good stuff!  ;)

I just found that pic online, it wasn't any particular pill. Yes, just be careful with your back.  ;)

I am 5'2. 5" and I want to be around 5'4"-5'5" and definitely not any taller than that.

I think my torso is slightly longer than my legs and I just want them to be evened out and get those long shapely legs.  I think that short women with long legs tend to be just incredibly gorgeous.  For the most part I love being petite and being a tall woman just wouldn't suit me.  Therefore I have absolutely no desire to be Amazonian height or anything over 5'5" at most. 

With heels on my legs look amazing; long lean and perfect.  Even just 2 inch wedges can do the trick.  But I don't want to have to wear heels/wedges all the time, I want to be able to enjoy a pair of flats without being overcome by insecurity. 

The few people I've told about my height dysphoria and LL have told me I am insane.  But I'm sure many of you have heard that as well from your loved ones you've disclosed it to as well.  At the end of the day, it's up to the individual to take the plunge and do it for themselves and not anyone else.

Agreed.  If you are really ready to do it, then your friends - the ones that matter - and loved ones will have no choice but to try to understand and support.

I recently told my boyfriend of one year that I will go ahead with leg lengthening.  He told me he was hurt that his love for me wasn't enough to help me overcome this urge to change my legs.  But I told him that this is not anyone's decision but mine, and no one has an influence on my thinking.  It's my choice alone.  I think that my boyfriend is trying to understand, and he still cares for me the same as before I told him. 

I'm 157cm.  My boyfriend is 180.  My mom is 163ish and so is my sister.  I want to make it to 161-162 cm.  My legs are short comparative to my torso, but since I'm short I think even 4-5cm will make my legs look significantly longer.  I won't have to alter pants finally! This will make me able to look my female family members in the eye, as well as not have to crane my neck back to look up at my boyfriend.  >:( Most importantly, though, I hope that I will become at peace with my stature and be able to feel like my legs are sexy, not short.

Doing my surgery in January.  I can't wait.
