Agree with Andre01. Also .... some black women have really long legs. Definately, long arms, but because of they short torso, arms appear even longer.
Watch the difference here

Check out the leg / torso difference between these 2 babes (apologies in advance if these woman are too hot for the site LoL)

The girl on the right seems to be very slightly taller but has significantly shorter legs with a much longer torso/sitting height! I say it's all good! Different can be good with no complaints from me either way!

wow Rogan that is a really cool picture!
I'm curious as to which body would be preferred by majority of men  Huh?

my male friend just said def the girl on the right!
I find the girl on the left more attractive (aside from a prettier face, her legs are nice and slim and she appears more athletic). She actually looks as if she's post leg/arm lengthening procedure.

I wonder if the girl on the right got LL if she'd look overall too long with her already long torso and long legs  Undecided

The one on the right looks more natural. The girl on the left has legs that look way too long, imo.

LOL this pic is really interesting.  I'm not sure about other race, but in asia, shorter torso=better.  mostly because people with long legs are rare and even the ones with long legs in asia are considered quite average compared to other races.  With no clothes on, the girl on the left looks a bit out of proportions (torso appears to be too short) but with clothes on, i think she'll look better than the right.

you can not really judge from a naked picture, movement is necessary to make a better judgement.

the girl on the right is definetely sexier. She is more feminine looking. At the same time I agree it may look different with clothes on.

Hey guys! This is my first post on this forum.  I'm from Russia and I've already had my tibia lengthened by 5cm at the Ilizarov center.  It turned out to be not enough and now in a few days I'll be having another surgery, this time I'll be doing cross-lateral tibia-femur lengthening, from which I plan to add at least 12cm.  Obviously the topic of proportions got me interested.  Well, I've got some pictures too. . .  (I hope it's ok that I didn't censor the genitalia, but tell me and I'll replace the pictures)



The female model is 168cm.  As you can see, after the edit their navels are on the same levels and they're pretty much the same height (the guy's head is about 2cm longer)
The male model height is not stated, but if you assume the female's head is 24cm long (usually it's 1/7-1/7. 5 of body height), it can be measured that he's around 185cm.  His wingspan though seems to be at least 195cm - you can see how close his hands lie to his knees.  A few more. . .


The female model is the same one posted above.  She's measured at 167cm on the studio site.  Now as you can see her legs are quite long and bringing her navel on the same level doesn't make her the same height with the guy.  (her arms are also very long, it's easy to notice)


With a white male now. . .  He seems to be at least 195cm (more than a full head taller than her).  With navels on the same level, the guy's still approx 10cm taller, but that's mostly due to his long neck spine, head and his haircut (around 4cm in head with haircut, 3 in neck).  His wingspan also seems to be proportional, close to ape ratio of 1.  His hands, as you can see, lie on the same level as his dick, while black guy's hands lie much further.

Now I'd say that we shouldn't be worried about torso length, but wingspan indeed could be a trouble for some.  I personally have a wingspan of 170cm and I started at 167cm height, now at 172.  When I get to 184 after two surgeries, I'll have a negative ape index of 14! Then again, there're quite a lot of people with their wingspan being 10-20cm longer, than their height and this doesn't seem to get viewed as a problem! It's just a question of how did we get to conclusion that having a positive non-proportional ape index is ok, while having a negative non-proportional ape index is not.

Even if they get arm lengthening they will still look weird with such short torso and thin shoulders. shoulders make a big different too not only arms

Dear users i'm new on the forum. .
i decided to join the forum to be certain about some aspects before opting for LL. . .
let's begin by saying my height is 170. 4 cm, and my only goal is to join "average" short stature, which i always regarded as 174-175.  I don't wan't and i cant't think of me as tall (179+). . i just don't want to be dwarfed by every single men and women and feel discomfortable as i feel now. . . that's it.

my main concern, though, is on proportions.  The problem is my sitting height, because it's 87. 7 cm, and i think it is really tiny (actually, it is). . . also, i'm very skinny at 55 kg, but that's less of a problem because you can always put on some weight. . .
i wandered through the forum before joining, and i found out that sitting-height/height ratio is the index to be taken into account when considering your maximum lengthening objectives. . . Being 87. 7 cm tall (sitting height), i 'd be 0. 50 (s-h/h ratio) at 175 cm. . .
Do you think it's acceptable? I read ranges are as follows:
- long-limbed <0. 51
- norm-limbed  51,1-53,1
- short-limbed >53,2
In the forum, it is reported Dr.  Guichet considers 0. 50 to be the lower limit (so I'd be in if I go for LL +5cm), but some users argue you can even go slightly lower (0. 49), but i didn't need to. . . still, i don't want to look awkward at 175 cm and 87. 7 sitting, so i really need to dismantle every thought on that.

What do you think? Do you think it will be proportionate? I can post photos if needed.
