HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A fitness and swimwear model from Houston is the record holder for longest legs in the world. Lauren Williams is 6 feet 4 inches tall and her legs measure 49 inches from the top of her hip to the floor. Her inseam is 39 inches.
The average woman’s inseam is about 45 percent of her height. Lauren’s inseam is an impressive 51 percent of her height.
Lauren comes from a family where everyone is at least 6 feet tall.
The contest started on a runway in Russia. It picked up steam and eventually grew online. Models everywhere submitted their statistics. Lauren has held the record for about a year.
The former volleyball player’s legs can be seen in swimwear ads for Nike and Maralese. Lauren told KHOU that the only thing she wins from this contest is pride… and a lot of work!
She currently does not have a boyfriend. Yes, she would prefer someone taller than her, but it’s not a deal breaker.
