Wow. I got 43.5%. I always thought my legs were short for my height but I had no idea they were actually below average. No wonder I'm always dressed to make my torso look shorter and legs look longer.

169cm height, 73cm inseam. 43%, with 5cm i would get to 46%, so much better/normal proportions. it sucks not having the money for the precise :(

measuring sitting height is much more accurate...

With 5CM you would be just under 45%. Did you remember to add the 5CM to your initial height alongside inseam? 78/174x100=44.82%. If you don't change your initial height, the sum comes 46% - 78/169x100=46.15%

measuring sitting height is much more accurate...

Not particularly, a fat/muscular person could have a sitting height of several CM more than someone at a very low body weight due to the size of the buttocks and thighs.

I just found this and did mine. I'm a white guy.

Height: 171cm
Inseam: 80cm
Floor to hip: 101cm

My back is straight, so I have a very short upper body. How do I gain height in my torso?

Edit: my sitting height is 93cm, so I disagree that sitting height is more accurate. My hips throw off my sitting height despite being part of my legs.

My height is 170 cm (5'7")

My inseam is 79 cm (31 in)

I got 46% leg to torso ratio

IMO, I have average leg to torso ratio,but I want to see what you guys think. Here are a couple of photos of mine:

Have to make it public, I'd rather not ask for permission since it's my real account and all, plus I don't think you want to be spammed.

There's an option you have to set for the link, look where you get the link and ensure that it's public or whatever. Whenever I try to click on that link it says I have to ask for permission, which means everyone else who wants to see has to ask for permission; ergo, it's not public

I think you have good proportions for LL.
Go for 6-6.5 cm in tibias and you'll look veey good. At your height 1 LL is enough imo.

So you say my leg to torso ratio is average?

Yes and maybe your feet are a little on the short side compared to your torso so your proportions won't be ruined with LL. On the contrary, I think you'll look better.

Thanks, mate. Well, my shoe size is actually 27.5, so I do not have small feet.

Shoe size is different from leg's length. With small feet I refer to the latter.

Here I my stats:

Relative lenghts, starting from the floor:
floor: 0 cm
ankle: 7 cm
knee: 42 cm
hip bone: 87 cm
shoulders: 130 cm
below the chin: 135 cm
top head / total height: 156 cm

Absolute lenghts:
head length: 156 cm
neck length: 5 cm
torso (hip bone to shoulder): 48 cm
femur (knee to hip bone): 40 cm
tibias (ankle to knee): 35 cm
foot (floor to ankle): 7 cm

inseam point to hip bone difference: 15 cm [(floor to femur) minus (inseam)]
inseam - 67 cm
wing span - 164 cm

sitting height - 84 cm
weight - 63 kg
strong/athletic physique, almost overweight for BMI, cuz of muscles, not skinny, can stretch very well

Notes on ratios and proportions:
max height, before looking weird (rule of thumb) = wing span + 10 cm = ape index of plus 10
average Sitting Height Ratio (SHR) = sitting height/height: 48-52%
average (inseam/height) = 45%
average tibia/femur = 80%

Current ratios before LL:
ape index = minus 8 cm
SHR = 53.85%
inseam/height = 42.95%
tibia/femur = 87.5%
When my arms hang, my inseam point is at half of my palm length

The plan is to go from 156 cm to 172 cm, starting after 3.5 years from now with 10 cm on femur,
and 3 years later with 6 cm on tibias. Since my femurs got loads of muscle mass, and they are shorter than they should in terms of proportions to tibias.
(This would also fix my bow legs simultanously. In my initial mail I got the reply that is no problem to achieve.)
I will go with Dr. Betz, cuz I live in germany, and he gives the patient what he wants, and I trust my body to withstand it without problems.

Ratios and proportions after two LL procedures:
height 156 cm > 172 cm (+16)
femur 40 cm -> 50 cm (+10)
tibias 35 cm -> 41 cm (+6)
wing span 164 cm
inseam 67 cm -> 83 cm

ape index from minus 8 cm -> plus 8 cm, good thing my arms hang low enough to look good anyway
SHR = 53.85% -> 48.8%
inseam/height = 42.95% -> 48.26%
tibia/femur = 87.5% -> 82.0%

Haven't had the appointment with Betz yet. It's planned for autumn.
