Can I grow after age 21?

I am currently 20 (almost 21) and I'm about 5'3 or 5'4 and I would like to grow 1-2 inches maybe even 3 if I could. Is there a way I could grow even an inch after age 21?

  • Its extremely unlikely. Puberty closes the ends of the long bones of the legs and arms, which is where you get most of the growth that makes you taller.

  • I actually did. I was 5'4" since I was 12 years old. Then at age 25, I was 5'6". I don't know if that is common or not, but I did grow 2 inches after 21.

  • Unfortunately, I think around age 19-20 is when the growing stops.
    I wouldn't be too concerned about your height. I've wanted to grow more too, as I'm 24 years old and I'm stuck at the same height I was since high school (5ft2)

    You can always work on posture, as that is a key to looking taller or gaining an extra half inch in height but other than that you're probably done growing height wise.
