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.

5'4

I'm OK with staying 5'4 or adding 3", but shrinking is a definite no.

I'm 5'10", which is already pretty tall here. I'd like to remain the same height, because people already don't stop talking about how I should try basketball even though I'm not athletically inclined in the slightest, but I also like Tall-ish People advantages. :>

I am more sort of impressed by the fact I can be almost too tall for shower(when I strech my arms, I risk getting the shower head in my head), and wonder what people thought when installing it(because it wasn't installed right, well, the waterlines are), there is even marks after an older shower higher up on the wall. But then said I am confused by the apartment's layout in that regard, I can barely reach the top shelf in the kitchen(not the back of it), and definitely not on top of the cabinets, but the inside doors isn't super high either, as I can reach comfortable over them.

160 cm (5'2). I don't mind being this height, so I'll happily stay this way.

I'm currently 5'9". If I could, I would go for one more inch. So, 5'10" though I doubt it would make much of a difference.

Been noticing that most ppl on your list would go for at least 3 more/less inches :0 and I find that intriguing. Is that a special number or something?

1) I see that you want to grow taller, but it's THREE inches, not one :)
2)I don't know if it's special. I think people are just sick and tired of their height!

Theres no benefit to being really tall, infact youll lead a healthier life if you were normal sized, id personally lose the 3 inches, and go down to 5 ft 10.5 inches, though im mostly fine as i am at 6 ft 1.5 inch, given the choice id stay, id never want to be over 6 ft 4 though ooof

Maybe not HEALTHIER, but LONGER. As for being over 6'4", maybe it would be hard. Katforce is 6'5"! (Look at previous pages to find it)

The only downside to growing 3 inches is some of my favourite clothes won't fit anymore and they have been discontinued so it's not like I can buy them again in a larger size. But yeah I wouldn't mind being a bit taller. However an extra 3 inches elsewhere would be great too :shifty:

:iconsyroniene8898:
