It's good to finally see the unicorn in person and realize that all of the tall about torso length is bunk. 99% of the people in the world will not notice your arm length either. Height is far more important in the grand scheme of things.
I completely agree.
That's why I believe that it is insane for someone to do arm lengthening. Noone will mention it people!

ps Citizen Kane is my favorite movie of all time.

Wingspan matters folks. There is no point in denying it. Wingspan 15 cm below height will look odd to a certain extent. To go 10-11 cm above wingspan is really max in my opinion without considering arm lengthening

I've been doing a lot of research on the golden ratio, and I have a very proportionate body mathematically. But I'm still going to get LL since it doesn't throw it off that much..

As long as you're not fat you're within the proportionate range. Although I did see some Asian guys with extreme short arms but long torso which is bad for LL purpose.

Hi, nice to meet you!

I always worried about my torso length lately, but now I am more relieved that armspan matters. My wingspan is 5'10, which is enough for 3 more inches as there are people out there who naturally have a negative ape index.

I have always been told that I have perfect proportions where I currently stand, but maybe it's just perceptions as I am close to 5'10 with trainers on. I also think that if you wear your trousers higher than most people, you will be perceived to have longer legs.

Another thing I wondered was why it's possible to lengthen tibias, femurs and the humerus, but not the forearms.

173cm (5'8") tall at the moment, hoping to be at least 180cm (5'11") tall quite soon (or 6'1" at most).   Saving money for my first LL surgery!

The other factor no one talks about is bone width/thickness.

I am 5'7. 5" tall and have a 5'11. 5".  Yet anything more than 2. 5" lifts look ridiculous on me because (1) I already have long legs, and (2) My wrists and ankles are tiny.  I have thinner wrists than most girls (small bone structure).

I look like I'm on stilts past 5'10" and it looks unnatural.

Works fine for me.  I just want 2. 5" tibial lengthening and then I'm done.

In my opinion torso length does matter because in some cases person may have long torso/short legs.  In this case +15/+20 cm may still look really good.  Also clothing can help cover up disproportions if they exist.  Unless you suffer from achondroplasia arm lengthening is stupid move.

it doesn't matter my torso length if I expect to grow (naturally as a teen)?
My sitting height was my bet to get more height bcs is below average but the only thing that matters is my wingspan?
