i think a lot of the quote unquote 5'11 models are actually taller than 6 feet and they're only saying they're 5'11 so that the client won't be scared

same thing with the shorter models.... they're like 5'9 and under but the agencies say they're 5'9

Giants!
When I saw this photo, I just had to post it and I think this part of the forum is the right place .. Take a look at this;

Have you ever seen anything like this? Is the model insanely tall or is the assistand extremely short? It's mindblowing ..

Yep in the AusNTM LA episode she talked about how if the other finalists wore heels that she'd still be taller than them...

Quite a few giants among the newer crowd...

Taryn Davidson's listed as 6'0 at Why Not
Flo Gennaro used to be listed as 6'0
Chantel Lee (stunning IMG newcomer) - 6'0
Alexandra Tomlinson - 6'0 at IMG
Marikka Juhler - 6'2(!) at Women Paris
etc...

And of course plenty of models listed as 5'11 (and pretty much everyone listed as 5'11.5'') are really closer to 6 feet, or even taller...

It's true!Caroline Trentini said in a interview for a brazilian newspaper that she is 184 (6'0,5) and that she used to lie saying she was 178 (5'10.5) because people always got ''chocked'' by her hight telling her she is huge and she wasn't very comfortable with that


In a interview for The Fashion File on E entertainment television Michelle Buswell said that she is 189 (6'3). So I believe Tiiu Kuik is around 193 (6'4) cause they are often pictured together and Tiiu looks a little bit taller than Michelle

^ adding to what you said, a lot of models start out very young, which means they're still growing so they end up adding 1 to 2 inches more.
