  • considering that 5'4 is the average height for girls, 5'7 is kinda tall but not abnormally so. Right now most guys probably haven't hit their growth spurt but once you get into highschool and guys start to catch up your height shouldn't be a problem. 5'7 is a pretty good height for a girl, you're tall enough that you have decent legs and proportion but still shorter than most guys.

    short answer: chill out , you'll be fine :)

  • It is tall for an 8th grader but that's not a bad thing. Tall girls can look very nice. I remember a tall girl in my high school. She was liked by many many guys. So don't feel unattractive.

  • Average female height in the US for an adult is 5'4''. I personally consider my ideal height for a girl to be 5'2'' - 5'4'', but I'm short.

  • It is tall, but only because the guys have not grown yet for the most part. give it 3-4 years and I would say that is a great height for a woman! In fact I usually only like 5'7ish or taller as I am tall myself.

  • It's just the rate you're growing. It'll slow soon and hey you'll still be taller than average and that is not a bad thing.

  • Well girls hit puberty before boys, so it's probably normal. I was probably 5'8 in 8th grade.

  • I do not think it is not normal, but it is definitely above the average.

  • Well, it's not going to do you any good to be self-conscious about it. It's not like you can do anything to change it.

    Just own it, and if anyone's got a problem with it, they can fuck off.

  • You might not grow anymore, so don't worry about it too much. I stopped growing in the 6th grade! I was a little taller than most.

  • I was tall when I was your age but I stop growing. Girls just grown earlier than boys. Once you get older you will stop growing and soon the boys will chetch up. Your are uniquene enjoy it.

    • about the age thing, I had a growth spurt when I was 13. Don't worry, most of the boys will catch up soon they just tend to have growth spurts older

  • That is not abnormaly tall.
    You are normal for you.
    Nearly super model height !

    When I was in school the girls liked being tall and it was seen as cool.
    Boys take longer to grow and you might notice girls shorter than you are taller than or always will be taller than some of the boys.

    Embrace your long legs. It's not a bad thing!
