Still not quite sure what you mean by "as proportionate as everyone else".

Do you say that everyones tibia/femur ratio is the same? (cause that statement doesn't make any sense to me at all)

I am pretty sure what he means is that just as with height, the vast majority of the population fall within a certain proportions ratios range and thus is normally proportionate, even very short or very tall people. Lengthening any bones will quite quickly move where you are on these bell curves and could make you a statistical outlier, that is, getting ratios that would not readily occur in nature unless there's likely some medical abnormality (ie growth disorder or deformity) involved.

I could get back to you with some research papers showing some examples of these kinds of ratio ranges if you want.. at least for sitting height vs height.

I would be very interested in these charts, and I think quite a few others would be too. Please post them, if it's not too much trouble. Thanks!

If you look at the sitting height thread ( http://www.makemetaller.org/index.php/topic,1387.0.html ), it seems like there a pretty big range in torso/leg length. It would my guess that tib/femur length is pretty much the same (just like there a lot of different face proportions).

WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE RESEARCH PAPERS! Smiley

Proportions are probably my main concern with LL, Would 7 cm be to much?

This girl looks better with her tibia's lengthened, if it is the same girl?

They don't.
It's just that you can get away with longer tibias than nature gave you.
