You’ve probably heard this before, but 6’ really isn’t all that tall for a woman any more. So many gorgeous women are that tall, and they enhance it with heels. Be you! I’ll be down here trying to see past all the regular height people.

Good point ! Its gotta beat being a 6' dude with tits !

I used to be 5'11"

Somehow, I've lost an inch.  I'm not ready to place it on HRT yet, because it could be due to the abuse I subjected my body to over the years.  It could also be the difference between the combat boots my height was initially measured with and the tennis shoes from a couple months ago.  So many variables to consider.
All the worlds a joke, and the people, merely punchlines

To be exact the nurses that measure me have said 6 1 and 1/2 for several years so I think I shrunk a touch.

I am very self conscious about my height but at my new place of work there is a woman taller than me in the office YAY
and she is very pretty also I saw another one in the main concourse (huge campus ) and she was at least as tall as me and was also very attractive.

Taller women are getting more common, thank God  :D

Many years ago I dated a woman my height - she was very self conscious as well but she was striking.  My guy friends used to ask if I was paying her.   ;D

I remeasured my height tonight and I was 5 foot 9 inches so it seems that I have shrunk an inch.

I just measured with no shoes on. 5'8" for me. This is the first time I have checked my height in years.
My drivers license shows me at 5'11" and I remember being this tall for years. Maybe I just put it down
on the paperwork back then because I didn't know my height lol. Either way I just lost 3 inches and that is
fine with me.  :laugh:

That is exactly my experience!  I initially  clicked 5'9" but then had to subtract shoes so 5'8" down from 5"11"  I wonder if lack of testosterone is reason for the height lost or is it just getting older?

I was always told 6'3" but my doctor measured 6'2" at first appointment.

I'll see in June at my next if any change.

179.5cm (basically 5'11").
I do gain half an inch when corseted because my scoliosis has a chance to straighten out.

I was actually 5'9" when I started oestrogen (same height as my twin sister) - of course we were only 19.

I'm 173 cm or 5'8" tall, and all of my female colleagues are 4" shorter, but I often look up to the teenage girls I teach.

OK, in real numbers 6' give or take a quarter inch :laugh:
I am one of the shorter Transgender women in my social group (the shortest is around 5' 8" and the tallest about 6' 6" in flats) and each of us is amazing  :icon_yes: .  Now finding amazing clothes to fit...quite another issue :icon_wink:

Before HRT, I'm right at 5'5". I can't complain! When I was an angsty preteen (who had dysphoria but wasn't yet aware what being trans was), I was trying to be a boy, and was worried about me being so short. Now I feel very blessed. I'm very near average for a woman. =D

179cm - whatever that is in imperial!

fairly tall, but I'm lucky to have a pretty slim figure and size 8 feet, so I can't complain too much.

I was measured once (probably when in the military) at 5'8".  That has been my answer ever since then.  I haven't measured myself in a long time, so I have no real idea if my height has changed or not.  It won't have changed a lot, so it is probably close enough.

Once upon a time, I used to be 6'1".  Now I am, depending who is measuring, between 5'10" and 5'11".

I am a little on the tall side for a female, ad to make matters worse, I like to wear 3" to 4" high heels.

Six foot one or so. I have no dysphoria around it though. Plenty of tall women in New Zealand.

I was 6'7" when I started HRT and lost nearly 2 inches to 6'5¼". I'm still a tall amazon woman, but those 2 inches allow me to wear some heels without worrying about hitting door frames, LOL

Sydney, you mean 5'19"??
I was 5'20" when I started....still 5'20"
Grew 18" in one year as a kid so that destroyed most of my cartilage, so I'll be 5"20 when I eventually assume room temp.
I duck through all door frames whether in heels or otherwise.
Born 1963
Knew I should be female 1972
Grew 18" in single year 1978
Resigned to self that I never will pass regardless, and will always and forever just be seen as a giant dude, but will pursue femme self ID anyway.
started HRT 2002 DIY
Prescribed legitimately 2012
Just going to be me.
