Do YOU have long/average/short legs?
« on: June 23, 2014, 02:13:18 PM »

Do YOU have long/average/short legs?
Ok, so statistically:

An average leg has an inseam that represents 45% of the height.

You measure inseam, bit stading, with no socks, or shoes, and measure from your crotch to the floor. (nr 5 in the pic)


I'm 177.5cm in height.
my inseam is 81 cm.

You calculate it by going:

inseam (cm)
___________ x 100
height (cm)


mine works out to 45%


Which sounds about right, as my legs appear average.
What's yours?

P.S. This post is borrowed from an asian female fashion forum  ;D .  Keep in mind that females have longer legs compared to their torso's!

45-48% is in the norm, everything under or over is short/long
So if i went ahead and lengthened my legs by 2x 3.25cm, my inseam would be 87.5cm divided by 184cm = 47%

Mine is 44% (31"/79cm) so plenty of place for LL  ;D
Will be 47% after lengthening 5 on femurs + 4cm on tibs.

In those pics it doesn't look like the line goes all the way up to the crotch, or "taint" (the skin between the penis and the butt).

I can't reconcile that my inseam is 31.25" at 5'8, when my x-ray measurements show my legs were shorter than Apotheosis, who was 5'7 and had a decent sitting height. I also am pretty skinny, and have a 94 cm sitting height.

I mean I have pure scientific evidence that my legs are on the below average side, they are equal to a guy who was 5'6 on old forum . Meaning I would have to be 6' to have his pre-LL ratios (assuming 4 inches of leg growth for every 2 inches of torso growth).

I don't know where these people are measuring to, there is no standard "crotch" location it seems. It's too variable.

Well, It seemed fitting for them.

No, no, no!  Start measuring from the floor!  Pfff, chix and tools! ;)
But she can measure my inseam anytime!  :P

Hmm, well from the top of my pants (hip bone) to the floor is 37 inches, or 94 cm. And it's not like I have long tibias or something, my tibia/femur ratio was right about average according to x-rays. I doubt my heels are long either. I'm really not getting this floor to crotch business. Whatever.

Btw, How much do you plan on lengthening ?
Here is how i see it, You can have length or good proportions but not both. Even if you have shorter legs and great sitting height, there will always be something to ruin our proportions. There is more to proportions than legs/torso (arm span,shoulder width,hand size,feet size,head size... and more)
You could probably go up to 6'0" but you need to sacrifice some proportions to do it, IMO there is a threshold but then again i am not a doctor.
Whats you'r arm span btw ?

I plan to do 4 inches to get to 6 foot, quad lengthening with Paley.  My armspan is pretty crappy: 173-174 cm. Which is why I was annoyed of the thought I don't have short legs. Short limbs are usually a package deal. I know a 10 cm difference seems bad, but I saw Mysteryman at old forum  who had a 10 cm difference (165 wingspan, 175 cm post LL height), and no one would be able to tell unless they were looking for it.

Without measuring I know I'm on the shorter side for my legs, It's just easy to tell when I look in the mirror or when I'm next to others. And it's probably overemphasized because my wingspan is nearly 4inches higher than my height.

Please read my post more carefully. I was referring to Mysteryman from old forum  who was 175 cm post LL.

I think my post was pretty clear, your English must be pretty weak.

I did.  I suppose that's how I could get away with lengthening 3 inches without looking weird.

174 height vs 79 inseam means 45,4 %.
So on the edge of short legs.

I always noticed that just by sitting height I am not doing bad against most men who are much taller than me.

LL would look good on me, I think, and I would have around 47% with 181 height and 85 inseam (I think 7cm is a bit on the extreme already, I am aiming for 6 cm).

So, slightly more leggy but still on the good side.

Before my Lengthening i had very short legs. Now they look much more proportionate to the torso than before. But i really think that they are still in the short range and that 4/5cm more could be ideal.

Sitting Height: Around 90-91cm

I'm 64 inches in height, or around 163cm's, and my leg length from floor to crotch is 34 inches, or 86.4cm's. meaning I have a 53% leg to torso ratio. Long stride much?

Mine is 48.4% apparently. Does this mean I have a really short torso for a 5'2 person?

Damn... I just measured my inseam and my sitting height. Turns out I am on average side, always thought I had a long torso/short legs combo. My inseam is ~76cm and my sitting height is 87cm on the evening. I'm 167.2cm tall. So my leg to torso ratio is 0.4545. I'm now interested if my arms are long or short, can I use the same formula but with arm lenght/wingspan?

so for me it is 73cm/168.5cm x 100 = 43.32%

The bigger wingspan the better(obviously).

Just measured for you and my arms are around 74cm.

If you want some kind of image how you could look like after some amount of lengthening make mockups.
