3 inches

:iconsyroniene8898:
Yup. Another height thread. However, this time, I have a question for you:

If you had the opportunity to grow or shrink 3 inches, would you take that opportunity or stick with your current height?

I'll go first:

I'm 6' (6 foot). If I had the opportunity, I would like to grow 3 inches to 6'3". Not only would I like being taller, but I would also look slimmer, since my BMI is in the 'overweight' category.

What do you think?


Edit 12 Jul 2020: I have to go to bed, but here's what I have so far (I'm only including people who put their heights):

Key: R = Remain, G = Grow, S = Shrink

ElviraCheyenne666 – 4’11” (G to 5’2”)

alphashad0w – 5’ (G to 5’3”)

chaseawaythedark – 5’3” (G to 5’6”)

SpaniardWithKnives – 5’7” (G to 5’10”)

ScottToms – 5’8” (R)

Spook-A-Palooza – 5’9” (S to 5’6”)

N1cknameHere – 6’ (G to 6’3”)

Syroniene8898 – 6’ (G to 6’3”)

nightsvallow – 6’1” (G to 6’4”)

SophitiaCroft – 6’2” (G to 6’5”)

Katforce – 6’5” (S to 6’2”)

^^ I might update this further on.

I agree. If your community is quite rough then maybe an extra 3 inches would help. :(

3 inches are 7,62cm (0,0762m)
I´m 1,63m tall.

I would go smaller, to 1,57m

I like to be smaller than others ~ I dunno why. It just feels more comfortable.

Well. Everyone wants to be tall, including my partner. They can put me on their shoulders.
Also. I have a good orientation. I just have to sneak trough~

Not everyone wants to be tall here. Some want to shrink.

I guess being put on shoulders would be a good idea!

Yuss.
And even while being smaller, I can still be the tallest on the shoulders of others :D HA no-one saw this coming.

You would probably gain a lot of attention, though. I would hate that, but maybe you would like it!

i would stay 5'4 I definitely wouldn't wanna be shorter and I think 3 more inches would just be too tall at this point even though it would be interesting to see what its like.

I guess it would be interesting to see what one would look like either 3 inches shorter or taller. I'd be either 5'9" or 6'3".

No, but I would not mind to be even a taller woman.
Women like to be smaller, I would not mind to be even taller because I do not fall for short men anyhow

My height or taller. I am not that demanding but at least he has to be my height
A good looking fella over 6 feet is a 😍😍😍.
But in my experience, shorter men that their partners tend to have a lot of issues, I know by experience, done that, not anymore

Not really issues, it's just a matter of taste, I prefer my small aesthetic nowadays, even if as a teen I would have done anything o be on the taller side.
