    I was just thinking about how tall the average woman is these days, and I don't know. Is 5'5" the average height for a woman (in the USA)?

    I'm short (5'2", though the doctor says I've shrunk to 5'1" - huh), so most people are taller than me anyway. So just looking around and assessing isn't giving me the answer.

    So.... I'm taking a survey. How tall are YOU?

    I'm 5'6", too. But I have short legs and a long torso. Makes buying things difficult sometimes.

    I'm only 5'5", but I have the opposite problem, long legs and a very short torso. This also makes buying things difficult.

    I am 5'61/2" but my mom was 5'2", dad is 6'4"? I guess I just got caught in the middle because my younger sister and brother are 6ft. Who knows? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    buying any slacks or pants are near impossible to get them long enough.....even the talls are short on me.

    I'm 5'11 and I agree, it's really tough to find pants long enough. I have a 36" in seam.

    I always said I was 5'5", but at my last doctor's visit, the nurse said I was 5'3". Guess those extra two inches went to the width instead of the height.

    I have the same problem only in reverse. Have you ever tried on capre (sp?) pants that were so long you were stepping on them. Try finding pants with a 29" inseam. Short length is still 32" in most pants. My DD's don't mind "Walking" off the bottoms of their pants, but if I have to pay $40 for a pair of jeans, I'm not walking them off. I cut and hem them and save the scraps for a quilt. DD's say that is what old ladies do. Yep 43 is the new version of the old lady. :D
