I just heard the host (Colleen, I think) on HSN state the average height of the American woman is 5'8". She then related it to some other feature of clothing that I didn't catch. (Did anyone?)
In any event, that statistic did not sound right at all. A bit of checking confirmed the average height is still 5'4". I don't know where she came up with her statistic.

Wow, I’m 5’7”seems as if everyone is taller then me.
You’ve given me a gift, I’m TALL.

I would never have thought 5'8" was average. I'm 5'5" and always thought that was average. It's pretty close I guess.

Average is 5’4” for women. Has been for years and I checked and it hasn’t changed. I am 5’4” and haven’t changed...every time I go to dr and they measure my height I get a high-five! I don’t always get a high-five after they weigh me though....ahem....my mother was 5’8” and she was always considered tall. Maybe Colleen was trying to seem something long.

The stats say 5ft4 is average, but who wants to be considered average at anything!LOL 5ft 8 is tall for a woman, but the fashion industry always wants women to be taller, like 5ft10, then they don't actually have to design for a womans body.

I can't believe it's still 5'4". Each generation gets taller. I think the average is 5'6" now. I've seen plenty corn fed teenage girls and they are about 5'6" or 5'7". Not only taller, but bigger too. Same with boys. 5'4" sounds part of the baby boom when they were girls.
The first thing my Russian co worker said to me when I asked her what her first impression of Americans were. She said "Big"
