Comment on the Height of Britney Spears

@aronne so 5'4 is tiny nowadays in your eyes?

I've always looked up to Britney's body image. She's always looked like a healthy, average-sized female for her build- she has a curvy body type, but she is toned. She never seemed to be pressured to be too skinny for her natural body type (as many celebrities and everyday girls have succumbed to that pressure) or wear gigantic heels all the time to be "supermodel height". She seems happy with who she is; girls could learn from her. I still fail to understand why people think certain heights/weights/body types are better than others and that having a certain body type makes you a "superior person". Screw anyone who thinks that way; be yourself!

when she began in music she wasn't so "diva". She appeared listed as 1,62 cm as in many sites appears like that. so she is 1,62 cm. Downgrade please
Daniel said on 5/Sep/15
Legit 163cm.
pj said on 5/Sep/15
i always thought she could pull off saying she's 5'5. she seems about that and holds her own next to other celebs. Nice to see she doesnt lie about her height, guess she doesnt care. i guess 5'4 it is.
aronne said on 30/Aug/15
Britney is tiny she's like 5'4 ; a friend of mine met her and said she is pretty tiny ; on stage looks tall it's just television makes you look bigger . If you see the picture with beyonce she's shorter and Beyonce is 5'6 , so what?
weirdo said on 11/Aug/15
Britney in high heels with 5'9 michael jackson,he was still shorter than him about 4-3 5'4 maximum for her!
Resh1988 said on 11/Jul/15
Guess if you put the average Handspan on her she's seeing Cristiano ( 9 inch -- 6'1 ) Would be a bit of a shock in the flesh
maryanne said on 17/Jun/15
If she was like 5'8-9 she would look better cause she looking so stunning in high heels. But anyway, i love her so much.
Me said on 1/Jan/15
I watch the video Rob. I clearly heard her said 5'4.
[Editor Rob: yes it sounded like four rather than five five.]
lee said on 23/Dec/14
i just watched that vid and for sure she says five four
[Editor Rob: it sounds more like four than five]
kay said on 14/Dec/14
Click Here this guy's 6'7", there's a video of them posing for the pic and he asks how tall she is, she says 5'5". she looks about 14-15 inches shorter than him and he's got footwear advantage. i'd say she's 5'4.5"-5'5"
[Editor Rob: I don't know what she says, here is the clip Here...could be five four.]
177cmGuy said on 30/Nov/14
162cm or 163cm should be right for Britney
Cami said on 28/Oct/14
I'm surprised, I thought she was shorter! I remember when she appeared on glee she didn't look much taller than jenna ushkowitz and lea michelle, both 5'2 and Lea said in a red carpet interview that britney was " so tiny!". I think 5'3 or 5'3.5
AJ said on 4/Sep/14
She is big boned and athletic it makes her look taller

Britney to me is one the best singer. I love want she have done she look more mature than ever here face look growing up more mommy look go britey I love this look all it take is some good love
Alex 6'0 said on 11/Jul/14
I remember in high school I saw a magazine where she wrote down 5'8 1/2 for herself! That or I made a mistake and it didn't say that. She does seem a 5'4 range girl. I think Rob as her right. That puts Aguilera at 5'1
zeinab said on 19/Jun/14
shakira want to look short but in fact she is 162cm and this is my height too !! NOT SHORT
and beyonce want to look short too !!
even that she is 171cm !!
and britney is listed in the police peaper as a 5'5ft =166cm
i really want to know WHY THEY WANT TO LOOK SHORT ??
is it because they want to look younger or because they want to wear high heels !!
zeinab said on 9/Jun/14

I've met Britney at the VMA's and she's a good 5'3 . I'm 5'8 and I was towering over her , I understand how in the entertainment industry you can be portrayed a lot taller then you are as an actor I'm told to add 2 inches to my real height so I'm 5'10 in the movie industry . Katy is a solid 5'6 and Paris is a tall leany stick so would be about a 5'8 . Britney is a sold 5'3 !

Click Here here are all her measurements. her height is stated as 5'4" so this is right, even if I would have said she was a bit taller than that...
mark said on 10/Sep/13
she's only 5-3 or 5-4...she's not 5-5...she had slippers on and was close to me
Billy said on 27/Aug/13
I'd say 5'5" perhaps, here's a picture with apparently 5'7" Katy Perry: Click Here
Katy doesn't look any more then 2" taller in seemingly the same footwear, plus Britney isn't stood up straight.
Brad said on 27/Feb/13
5 feet 5 at the lowest.
Tt said on 8/Feb/13
In the picture with her and paris, she is wearing flats and Paris is wearing heeled boots. I would guess Britney to be at least 5'5.5"
J said on 26/Jan/13
They seem about right Britney Spears is about 5'4 because Beyoncé is about 5'6 and if you look at the picture with those two Britney looks about 2 inches shorter.

i think she always looks to have a good height in pictures. not too short, and not too tall next to other people. i think she could pass for being 5'5". but i do believe this listing is just on the dot. also, on her "baby hit me one more time" single, she had a card where it listed her as 5'4". it's nice to see she never lied bout her height.

If madonna is 5'2 , she is 5'3 ;
maximus said on 11/Oct/12
I thought she was least 5'6 to 5'7....heels do add alot of height.
johnnyfive said on 10/Sep/12
@ Overzero people DO NOT lose height this early in their life! unless they are extreme bodybuilders and lift 300 lbs over their head on a daily basis! I just turned 31, I'm a couple of months older than Britney and I assure you I am the exact same height as I was 10, 11 years ago, and NO, people are not oldsters at 30, we are just older and wiser than you freshly turned 20 year olds, that's all.
ano said on 9/Sep/12
@overzero "No person is as tall at age 30 as at age 20"...
People are not oldsters at 30!!
Johnnyfive said on 2/Sep/12
Well, Shakira, who is the only celebrity up here who I feel deserves a major upgrade, is quoted as saying her and Britney are the same height. In my opinion, based on pics of Shakira and J-Lo together in where they look the same height, I believe Shakira is 5'3 flat (J-Lo is about 5'3 as well, she needs a two-inch downgrade). So, Britney must be about 5'3 as well, or 5'3.5 at the most!
leonari said on 31/Jul/12
marla singer. Paris alone in pictures can look tall( so skinny, long arms and legs) but once you see with other folks you realize she is a good height but far from tall.
marla singer said on 30/Jul/12
@leonari sorry my fault (just saw her 5'7" listing here) but I swear I actually read on a site that she was 5'9" :/
leonari said on 28/Jul/12
Maria singer: Wow... Paris 5'9". Great whats next? Salma Hayek 5'6" ? Scarlett Johanson at least 5'7"??? Spare us. And Britney is as listed not a good 5'5"
marla singer said on 27/Jul/12
Looks a good 5'5" next to 5'9" Paris Hilton: Click Here
Stephanie said on 8/Jun/12
@overzero that's not true for everyone. there are people who are 40-50 who visit their childhood rooms and still match up to the height they were at 16 and stopped growing. Not everyone shrinks that quickly, although by age 70 I think most people will have lost a little height.
overzero said on 1/Feb/12
Everyone is forgetting that she is now 30 years old.
As we get older we lose height.
No person is as tall at age 30 as at age 20.
Brit has probably lost at least a tenth of an inch.
Angela said on 28/Jan/12
Britney is 5f31/2 to 5f4. No taller than that. She doesnt look taller. She has big shoulders so she may look "larger' not necessarily taller.
Bulky woman.
Kandy Kane said on 23/Jan/12
She's 5'3 - 5'4. When I met her she was very close to my height & I'm 5'3.5! =)
tinus said on 8/Oct/07
Ik believe she's is 5.4.
I have a question. Britney looks always so buf, she has a very muscular body. Does anybody know if she is strong? Her body looks stronger then a average man!

Felicia you are very big! I am 5.6, as a male!
Al said on 1/Oct/07
I believe she's 5'4 I have met her when she wasn't revolting I am an accurate 5 foot 8 1/2 and I was like a head taller than her we were barefoot on sand.
JK said on 2/Sep/07
I agree with the 5'4''
Lindsey said on 2/Sep/07
Shes at least 5'5 but no more than 5'6. I think they said she was 5"5 when she was 16 so she may have grown. But she alwyas wears shoes that make her taller,in video thats why she looks like 5'9
marlon said on 30/Aug/07
I read somewhere she could be 5ft 8.5inches. She even looked much taller than me and im 5ft 7.
Milez said on 17/Aug/07
I love Britney she's an Icon who I happen to see at the Mtv Awards ,she's 5'5"
felicia said on 11/Jul/07
sometimes crazy things just happen...everyone in my family is on the short side, no one is over about 5'9" mom is 5'5" and my dad is 5'7", i am a 19 year old female and 6'0", my 21 year old sister is 5'10", and my 17 year old brother is 6'4"
mouldy said on 9/Jul/07
hah, the incredible shrinking Britney ! Everytime I check this site out, she's shorter than before...Soon she'll be 4'11.

Rob, I have a puzzle for you : I've seen photos of Spears and "K-Fed" when she was pregnant back in '04 walking on the beach (the couple, not the pictures, hihi...). He was at best 4 inches taller, maybe 4.5. So I according to where you list Britney at, he should be somewhere between 5'8" AND 5'9" . BUT at a red-carpet event recently where Federline bumped into Justin Timberlake and they shook hands, he looked only about an inch shorter, maybe an inch and a half. I couldn't see their shoes, though. (Justin always wears sneakers like AllStar though, doesn't he ?). So unless Federline was wearing shoes with a (small) heel, JT might be a lot shorter than he is usually listed at. He could be as low as 5'10" then ..?
Alex said on 15/May/07
Britney does have Christina by 3 inches it looked like to me. So Christina at 5'1 and Britney at 5'4 seems most accurate.
Anonymous said on 22/Apr/07
but now she's always wearing those ridiculous hats, which makes it nearly impossible to judge her height now. I'd stick with 5'4" for now.
X said on 12/Apr/07
At least she can no longer be accused of padding her height with her hair like some women.
Charlotte said on 7/Apr/07
I agree with Kathryn.
Click Here
In that picture Spears looks a good 2 inches taller than Aguilera.

Click Here
And in that picture they seem to go tallest to shortest from left to right. If I remember right, they were all wearing roughly the same size heels, and Madonna is listed at 5"3(?).
Kathryn said on 2/Apr/07
i think she´s 5'4.5'' (164 cm), maybe 5'5'' (165 cm). Because when u look at her on pictures with Christina Aguliera, then u can see a huge height difference. Because X-Tina is only 5'1.5'' or so. So , I think this might be right. 163 - 165 cm.
Alex said on 24/Mar/07
Yea the 5'4 seems right, 5'4.5 at the most. Funny how still back in 1999 I saw this magazine where she wrote 5'8.5 for her height. I'm pretty sure she wrote that because it was in handwritting. Mistake from herself I would assume because I believed it at first but on TV she didn't look nowhere near 5'8.

About her being bald, I think its terrible.
Brooke said on 28/Feb/07
yaeh im 20 and im only 5 foot im also a mom of 2 on my 3rd and i am bi but my husband doesnt care i have a porn sight it is Click Here all of u will love it by the way nina,
my house 7:00 in the bed !!
Viper said on 25/Feb/07
Rob as her right. 5-4
Nina said on 24/Feb/07
I think 163cm is too short for her. She seems 5'5" lately!
A Girl said on 16/Feb/07
Leah- that almost undoubtedly did not stunt your growth. I'm 5'7", I've done weights and gymnastics since I was 9. My mother's only 5'5", my father 5'6" and three of my grandparents are well shorter than me, both of my grandmothers being only around 5' even.

Once a week is not going to affect your height... .

Britney looks so stumpy sometimes because of her thick legs and wearing mini skirts. What do you mean, dear editor, that 'she can hold a good feet-together pose'?
Johnny said on 8/Feb/07
I was wondering what we thought between her and her sister. Sometimes her "little" sister Jamie Lynn looks 5'5" (taller than Britney) and sometimes she looks shorter. If Brit is 5'4.25, then how tall is Jamie Lynn?
Alex said on 26/Jan/07
I have big legs for a guy myself quite above average actuall, and by looking at her you can clearly tell her legs are above average for a female and maybe about the average size for male's legs. But her legs are toned,not all flabby.
Martijn said on 16/Jan/07
Indeed, she must have strong legs. I think stronger than the average girl (maybe even boy?) And she is very quickly back in shape!
In the clip Toxic her legs look very impressive! She looks big!
Alex said on 15/Jan/07
Britney does have good legs. They're not huge but they're bigger than normal size for a female.
Martijn said on 15/Jan/07
I think Britney has done that too. She has very big muscles on her legs, arms and shoulders, especially on her legs! But she's not very big!
Leah: You're indeed small. But you must be very strong then!
Leah said on 3/Jan/07
I'm actually pretty sure it may have affected my growth. My mother is 5'7", father is 5'11", brother is 5'6.5" except he's only 14. And then there's me, this 5'2" thing. Well there's nothing I can do about it now, hey, at least I'm quite strong for my size. Oh and Alex, they made us do weights at least once a week for the whole year, same with the year after, so we did it pretty consistantly, I also did it in my own time a bit to lose a couple pounds. Hence why I'm convince it stunted my growth.
Martijn said on 20/Dec/06
Did you train too?
Leah: Did it affect you're growth or strenght?
Alex said on 19/Dec/06
Leah, when I was in gym class from 6th grade to 12th grade every year we did weights for 2 weeks out of the school year so it wasn't near enough at all to affect you. You gotta be doing it consistantly a lot. When I was in 12th grade I wasn't much stronger than when I was in 9th grade because you gotta be doing it consistanly to get results.
FiveOne said on 19/Dec/06
I grew half an inch after I turned 18. And I'm a girl. My cousin (also a girl) grew an inch after she turned 18. It has to do with genetics.
Martijn said on 18/Dec/06
Leah that could have affected you're growth! Maybe you're smaller then you should have been. But on the other hand, maybe you're very strong now!
Leah said on 17/Dec/06
Really? I remember a couple years ago in gym class they would constantly make us do bicep curls and a hell of a lot of weight training. I was only 15. Do you think that could have affected my growth?
Alex said on 16/Dec/06
They say for guys that they shouldn't start lifting weights consistantly unless at least 16 but more better at 18 they should start. I started at when I just turned 19.
Martijn said on 13/Dec/06
A girl is right! That's why muscle training isn't very good if you're younger than 18. You're muscles are still growing, and training can cause trouble.
But when you do start training at 14 (girls also) and it's goes well, you can grown really, really strong.
Anonymous said on 12/Dec/06
Hmm.. someone said she wrote down in a magazine that she was 5'8.5" maybe she actually wrote down 5'3.5". A 3 looks close to an 8 and with sloppy writing, maybe the magazine misprinted.
Anonymous said on 12/Dec/06
a girl - you are and extremely rare case. Many girls stop growing in their pre-teens and most stop growing in their early teens. I am not saying you didn't grow but have you been measured by a doctor who has said you are 5'7"?
Alex said on 12/Dec/06
A Girl, I see it often where girls only grow a bit after 13-14. I remember in 7th-8th grade more than some girls were taller than me and then by 9-10 grade I was taller than them all. But sometimes girls can grow more than a bit after that age though.
A Girl said on 11/Dec/06
Uhg, these statements about girls not growing past the age of 14 are really irking me! I continued growing until I was 19. At 16 I was probably 5'4.5", by 21 I saw the guy I had been dating when I was 16 for the first time in over four years, and he noticed right away that I was a good deal taller at 5'7".

Britney doesn't have the greatest body proportions and doesn't help that at all by wearing her super-minis. They just make her legs look stumpier and thus shortening her. She looks tallest with her midriff as the attention-getter.
Alex said on 9/Dec/06
Britney is 5'4 and Christina is 5'1 which I think is the most accurate. When you see them together you can see Britney has around 3 inches on her. Britney is 5'4.5 tops.
Anonymous said on 8/Dec/06
I saw the Tyra Britney show and someone said Brit isn't in heels. Actually she was in tall heels, she just has short legs. Tyra was in moderate heels (2-3") and dwarfed her. No way more than 5'4".
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/06
K- Fed is 5'9 at best. He was on Tyra and she was in low heels (I'll say they made her 6' as she is a real 5'10") and dwarfed him by at least three inches and you figure he had on shoes. Probably 5'8ish. She is 5'4, no more maybe 5'3.5". I thought her publicist people always say she is 5'4 and I doubt they would downgrade her.
Brad said on 2/Dec/06
She's 5' 5" but in meltdown now. She needs to get a gig in Vegas and get her career in gear in front of people. The staging on her last 2 years was amazing. She's far more talented than people think.

Glenn said on 22/Nov/06
3 inch inflation.
Alex said on 21/Nov/06
Glenn, kinda funny though that she writes 5'8.5 for her height in a magazine though 7 years ago huh?
Glenn said on 19/Nov/06
5-4ish,sometimes 5-5.
Alex said on 19/Nov/06
I said on the Christina Aguilera page that in a magazine in 1999 where Britney has a handwritten profile about her and she writes her height down as 5'8.5. Thats at least a 4 inch inflation. She looks 5'4, maybe 5'4.5 to me now. I use to think 5'5 not long ago.
Alex said on 19/Nov/06
Glenn, How tall does Britney look to you?
Brad said on 15/Nov/06
Her sister is starting to look like a fox.
Glenn said on 9/Nov/06
Wasted my time with her last night.too much paparrazi.
Brad said on 8/Nov/06
Well, we might see her at The Palms in Vega$ for 20 weeks a year. Tough call with a young following and a high ticket price for a short might bomb.
Alex said on 7/Nov/06
She's anywhere from 5'4-5'5, closer to 5'5 to me. I swear in a magazine 7 years ago she wrong down 5'8.5 for herself.
D. Ray Morton said on 4/Nov/06
"Poor Christina."

And her millions.

Never liked her songs or voice, but her bands are always slammin'.
Brad said on 3/Nov/06
Hard to judge Brit cuz she wears big heels. Aguilera wears huge heels but still looks tiny. Poor Christina. I hear she might dump her tour again....her ticket sales are dead in some cities and keeping 15 semis & a crew on the road with no shows for days is massive money. Britney lipsyncs her whole show and gets 10,000+ everywhere.
TNTinCA said on 23/Oct/06
Agree with TJ. The average age that male's reach maximum height is 16. Although later age growth can occur, that is rare. Women usually mature earlier so they will reach max height by 14 or 15.
TJ said on 22/Oct/06
Raz, that is false. Very few girls grow in their late teens. As anon said, most are done by 16 and many earlier than that. Guys are more likely to grow in their late teens, but even then some are done by 16 or so.
Raz said on 20/Oct/06
Almost all people grow until their late teens. Some grow even longer, but at increasingly smaller rates. I thought I stopped growing when I was 15, as I was the same height between 15 and 19, but today (at 27), I'm more than 1 cm taller than I was at 19.

I still think she's no more than 163 cm though.
anon said on 13/Oct/06
When her first single was released she was 16 but by the time the album was released, perhaps 3 months later, she was already 17. A 17 year old girl isn't still growing, not even a 16 for that matter. The extreme few that are still growing are late bloomers and Brit seemed to be developed already. Most girls don't grow past 14. That was a lie to cover up her mysterious change in breast size. I'll say 5'4" max. You can't compare to other stars since they lie too. I really think Christina Aguilera is no more than 5'1", if that. I always thought 5'0.5" fo her.
venus said on 10/Oct/06
She looks like she got Agiulera by 3 inches. She looks 5'5 to me.

Actually, she was 5' 4" when she was 16, and I think she is a legit 5' 5" now.
pamela said on 20/Sep/06
she is 5´3. she is short. just cuZ she is a big superstar doesnt have to make her tall. trhe truth is that she is fat and short. elf. deal wit it.
Viper652 said on 18/Aug/06
Britney has always looked kinda short to me.
andrea said on 16/Aug/06
I always thought Britney looked sorta tall...but I guess I was wrong. I figured her to be at least 5'4. Some people look taller/shorter than they really are. I'm 5'7 but I look like 5'5, max. When I'm slouching, I bet I lose another inch and I think theres a couple inches lost in my messed up neck:P Juding from these pictures, I think 5'4.5 sounds about right then.
Viper652 said on 4/Aug/06
K-Fed can look as short as 5-7 in pictures, its crazy.
Natalie said on 3/Aug/06
I am not sure. Sometimes she looks shorter than 164 cm and some times taller. But she is not taller than 167 cm and not shorter than 157 cm.
mouldy said on 3/Aug/06
Alex: There's no way K-Fed is 6'0", because then Brit is 5'7"-5'8"! I've seen a lot of pictures of them at the beach (when she was still pregannt with Sean Preston in 2004) and they're both barefoot, walking side-by-side. Kevin can't see over Britney's head, (which he could if he was 4.5-5 inches taller) so he's maximum 4 inches taller than her.
Raul said on 2/Aug/06
hi,i think Britney is either 5'4 or 5'5, any one of this,any ways u cant change her height now, however she is, she look good.Dont try to change her,plzzz...
Brad said on 1/Aug/06
I saw her at a casino in Vegas with boots on. She must have been 5'8" with ease. She's a legit 5'5". Ms. Aguilera can't be more than 5'1".

Danielle said on 6/Jun/06
Britney is quite a hard one to pin down, she can look (relatively) taller than the smaller celebrities, but at the same time most female celebs are hard to judge because of heel size, after just measuring myself - im short, a tiny smidge over 5'0, i measured myself again wearing my 4 inch heels, (the usual size most female celebs wear round about), and this only added around 2 and a half to 2 and three quarter inches max to my height. I think Britney is just under 5'5 looking at her she does appear to be average in height.

i rekon shez 5'5....she just looks it you no...i just think that she looked a good 3 inches taller than Christina A in all those pics of them
Alex said on 16/May/06
That picture with Melissa Joan hart puts Britney at a solid 5'5.

[Editor Rob: assuming they had identical heel heights of course]
Luis said on 15/May/06
Well, i meet her at The Onyx Hotel Tour, she is really pretty! and shes about 1.65 cm in no heels!!!! shes really sweet!
Alex said on 12/May/06
Viper, I am unsure on Kevin's height though, but I'd guess 5'9 maybe. What do you think Britney is? She can appear about 5'5.
Viper652 said on 4/May/06
If hes only 5-6 1/2 to 5-7, which I do not doubt actually, then its amazing how a skinny build in pictures at the right angles can make you look close to 6-0 at times.

Well I work at a casino in arizona, brittany spears was visiting scottsdale. While of course her husband was at the casino I worked at playing poker... On the way out he stopped by for a couple of hands of blackjack, he is no where near 6ft. I am 5'9 he was more around 5'6.5- 5'7 I remember thinking he is a little guy!
Alex said on 16/Apr/06
How tall is Kevin though? I've heard of a 6'0 claim. Next to Britney he looks only 5'9 maybe?
Alex said on 14/Apr/06
Well, yea in a magazine about 6-7 years ago I was reading and she had her profile that she wrote herself and for her height she put down 5'8.5 to be exact. I actually believed it for sometime until she was towered over by people 5'11-6'0. Shes anywhere from 5'4-5'5. Not the best to pin down.
Kats said on 12/Apr/06
Well, just wipe away my last post. I currently think Beyonce is 5'5.5 which puts Britney around 5'4-5'4.5 to me.

LOL, she claimed 5'8 once? Only in certain heels, Britney! I still have trouble with Christina btw. I don't know if she's 5'2 or maybe a little less...
Alex said on 6/Apr/06
I remember once Britney wrote down she was 5'8 in a magazine! LOL
She can appear 5'5 though. She's a few inches taller than 5'2 Christina Aguilera so 5'5 is possible but NO more than 5'5. Anywhere from 5'4-5'5.
Anonymous said on 27/Mar/06
Found a great pic of her and Sean Hayes (5'11"). She's in what looks like 3"+ heels. 5'4"-5'4.5" seems right.

Kats said on 23/Mar/06
No one should think Britney is more than 5'4 when Beyonce has been found out to be no more than 5'5. (See her page with her picture next to Glenn.) Britney could even be a little under 5'4. She has excellent posture and actually is shaped (above the waist) to look taller.

yeah I agree with 164 atleast...
Alex said on 10/Feb/06
I don't think Britney is over 5'5. I'd say 5'5 exactly she is.
Stephenie said on 10/Feb/06
In your picture, Britney looks about 2" taller and Kelly's heels seem to be slightly taller as well. So Britney is 5' 5". She was 5' 4" as a teen, but that's not saying much. Most girls are done growing in their early teens (or even late pre-teens) but some of us grow past 16... and if she was 5' 4" before then 5' 5" is only one inch, and I know a few girls/women who grew one inch since they turned 18.
Kayla said on 9/Feb/06
I was watching the E True Hollywood story on Britney Spears And Kevin Federline Well long Story short I saw A video capt. of Britney Spears standing next to Melissa Joan Hart (both probably in heals)Melissa who is listed at aprox. 5'3" on websites and britney LOOKED atleast 2 inches taller maybe 2 and a half to 3. so I'm betting at Brit being anywhere from 5'4"-5'5" and a half.

[Editor Rob: the 5ft 3 is 1-inch too for Melissa...she's said numerous times she's 5ft 2 and looks all of 5ft 2]

i think britney is at least 5'5, she's clearly taller than kelly ripa, who is an inch taller than jennifer lopez. either j.lo should be downgraded or britney upgraded here.

Kevin is a lot shorter then 6-0.

Hey ed can u tell me the height of jamie plz?

[Editor Rob: about 3 months ago she didn't look over 5ft 4...but she's around age of growth, so I'll add her eventually...]
J. said on 30/Dec/05
Kevin Federline has recently launched his own website. In a message to vistors, he states "I'm six feet tall ...". So, he has said he's 6'0". We can compare Britney's height to his.

[Editor Rob: might as well add this he six foot? I've not seen enough, anyone see him on ellen show?]
david .gh said on 29/Dec/05
i think she should be shorter because i met her and she told me she is 5'3
Nazish said on 25/Dec/05
I would have to say Britney is no more than 5'4'' because it has been reported by People's Magazine and also by my favorite site :)

CelebHeights Editor, what do you think Britney's height is? I think not more than 5'4''.

So in that sense I'm better with 5'5.5'' at 16 and still growing :)

Take care ppl! Hav fun!

jamie lynn is no where near 5'5 get over it brit is about 5'4 no taller!
mr. kennedy said on 12/Dec/05
judging by recent pictures with the two of them together they looked about the same height. But keep in mind that these pictures are hard to find so the most recent was from august. durring the time from august to now jamie lynn might
have grown since then. i would guess now that britney is 5'4 and jamie lynn is 5'5-5'6 but most likely 5'5
Anonymous said on 12/Dec/05
5'6.5" does seem like a stretch for Jamie Lynn, but by all accounts of recent pictures of the two Spears girls together, Jamie Lynn does definitely look taller than Britney.
jamie tall said on 10/Dec/05
On Imbd jamie spears is listed as 5'6'1/2"... I was really suprised. Shes only 14 and is taller than her older sister by 2 inches.. Hey Bob when you gonna make a name for Jamie lynn

[Editor Rob: no idea...doubtful unless she's grown 3 inches in 4 months...?]
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/05
Thats a bad angle with her and Jackson. Aguilera is 5'2 but Spears looks about 3 inches taller. I would think Brit is close to 5'5.
Kay said on 2/Dec/05
Check this. This was the opening to an article about Jamie Lynn Spears in Girl's life.

Jamie Lynn Spears is short--barely over 5 feet tall. You could probably lose her in an elevator.
mr. kennedy said on 25/Nov/05
well I would say britney is about 5'3 and her sister jamie has gotten taller than her... so she is probably 5'4.5? Maybe but just a guess, a very bold guess. In recent pictures britany is wearing heels and is about the same height as jamie so I would say that jamie is definently taller than britney.
Madeline said on 20/Nov/05
There is no way the Britney Spears is 5'4". I met Britney in Las Vegas a few months ago and she was the same height as me. I might even be a bit taller than her. She is really a solid 5'3" because I am 5'3".

Carson Daly doesn't look all that much smaller than he seems on TV in that photo. He appears close to 6'1" next to the 5'11" tennis player. Naturally, he'll seem taller and bigger on television. That pic also proves that Britney is no taller than 5'4".

[Editor Rob: yes, I agree...I meant the '6ft 3' he's supposed to have said sounds ludicrous because he's no bigger than 6ft 1.]
CelebHeights Editor said on 25/Sep/05
The picture of Britney aged 17 3/4 beside those tennis players Mary Pierce and Alexandra Stevenson all in trainers is on (click guest then enter B89 063896 into the search box). Now Pierce in 92-95 was regularly described as '5ft 11' in articles. You can also type in B89 063895
to see Carson Daly beside Mary, which maybe emphasises that he isn't quite as big as he wants folk to think...
~Nate~ said on 12/Sep/05
I saw Britney on Ellen and she had about a two inch boot heel on beside Ellens shoes and they were the same height. So I'm guessing Britney is about 5'5-5'6 MAX.
CoolJ said on 31/Aug/05
Once knew a girl that took a tour of the TRL studios in NYC. Watched Britney go over her routine for the show. This girl said Britney was small and no more than 5'3". Then again, you know how those sightings are.
J. said on 31/Aug/05
Well, I don't want to burst your bubble but Halle isn't 5'6". Many people who've worked with her or know her say she's more in the 5'4" range so that would make perfect sense for Britney being 5'4". It all makes sense. Britney- a solid 5'4"; Halle- 5'4" (possibly some change?); Ripa- 5'2.5"

[Editor Rob: the ripa girl is the puzzle. Another thing - remember that celebrity dancing girl who says she's 5ft 3 but the dancing series has her as 5ft 1? She was on Kelly's show and the 5ft 1 would match up the 5ft 2.5...of course if anybody has seen the halle/britney snl sketch there really doesn't appear a great deal between them, certainly having Halle Berry at 5ft 7 and britney at 5ft 4 looks to be a big stretch.

Now, I've never seen Crossroad but apparantly Kim Cattral is in it. Kim has been on the net as 5ft 10 and 9 for 10 years ;) Of course that quote she said 'I'm 5ft 6.5'. Maybe the truth about britney can be seen in her movie!]

ice said on 30/Aug/05
I just did a quick scan of the net. Almost every site has her listed at 5'4 now. Where do you see her listed at 5'5 and 5'6?

[Editor Rob: On the 5ft 6, it's out there i.e. Sites like this. The 5ft 5 thing is out and about from a profile page years ago.

She still puzzles me. I mean the kelly ripa pictures - every site has kelly at 5ft 4, me included - but I found that quote where she said '5ft 2.5' and the pictures of her and britney would then fit britney being 5ft 4 and her 5ft 2.5...hmm, but then she was on that saturday night show with halle berry and truly did not look greater than an inch shorter....

In recent pictures, Britney has looked shorter than Jamie Lynn. Here is a picture of them wearing similar sized heels and a fairly equal perspective, and Jamie Lynn definitely looks taller:

I was in hawaii like 5 years ago and I had seen her and I dont remember how tall she was and neither do I remember how tall I was that time accurately but I think shes like 5"3-5"4

In a photo, where Britney is entering a Public Bathroom(barefooted), I thought she looked like a MIDGET. I think she hasn't grown from her Mouseketeer days. I think Britney is somewhere between 5'2"-5'3". That's why when Britney first came out onto the scene, she told everyone she was 5'4". Now that she's replaced Madonna, she insists she's 5'5"(she CLEARLY doesn't look 5'5"). Britney looks 5'3"(in shoe). Check out Britney's SHORT femurs.

I am 5'8" and when I stood next to Britney, she was shorter than me and she was wearing heels. So I don't think she is more than 5'5" at all. Most likely she is a bit shorter than that.

Yes, says she's 5ft 6,but usually the oficial sites lie about the heights of celebrities (like by Kate Moss).

briteny was on the elen show today and when she stood beside ellen she was the same height as her. britney was wearing 1 intch cowboy boots and ellen was wearing running shoes so that would make britney about 5'6 -5'7 even ellen said they look about the same height.

Jack osbourn is 5'8 and you can check it. britney is 2 inches taller than him c and look at her next to madonna britney is 3 inches taller

[Editor Rob: I wouldn't say the Jack picture tells a 2-inch difference ;) Look at the way Jack is leaning and britney isn't leaning exactly either...but she does have on some big heels there, 3-3.4 inches in my view. Britney can still be the 5ft 5.5 though and it is possible.]

Britney looks taller than ellen degeneres she is on 2 inches heels

[Editor Rob: they could be 2 or 2.5, but man that other photo isn't really the best beside she does look to be leaning a bit dubiously. Ellen wears shoes a lot, is she in them or boots like britney's at that show?]

Ok, I've found another picture, which I believe is the best yet.
It features Britney between two SUVs, a Ford Expedition and a Range Rover III.
The Ford is 77.6 inches high and the Range Rover is 73.3 inches.
Measuring as carefully as I can, and taking the sole thickness of her trainers, and her posture, into account, I get 164-164.5 cm. A bit taller than I expected, but I truly believe this is Britney's true height.

Of course, there's always the chance that she's taller in the morning.
For me, the difference is more than half an inch. At my tallest, I'm 5' 10 1/4", and at my shortest, 5' 9 2/3". In the case of Britney, who has short legs for her height, she has a relatively long spine, and that allows for a greater variation in height over a day.

My personal opinion is that Britney's 5' 4 1/2" at the tallest and half an inch less than that at her shortest.

Here's the picture, by the way:

171 cm?Yeah,right.Just look at the pic,where she's standing next to Beyonce and Pink.Beyonce isn't even standing straight and Brit looks about an inch shorter than her (you know Beyonce is 5ft 6).So she's no more than 5ft 5.

For smoke.i agree with youre claim about britney and justin but it was a few years ago and she is taller now.have you seen her in austin powers 3? or with halle baree? look at her latest photos and see that she looks 5'7 more than 5'4
Smoke said on 29/Apr/05
Wow Anonymous, I'm sure if you had your way all of the women on this site would tower over all of the men! Let's be real though, Justin Timberlake is in the 5'11"-6'0" range, and he passed himself off as being 6'2" for many years beside Britney, even when she was in significant heals most of the time, to be honest until I saw Justin beside some other people I really did believe that he was actually 6'2". If you compare her to Timberlake, I would say 5'4" at best.
J. said on 26/Apr/05
Britney Spears' teenybopper internet fans are so cute! They truly insist she's tall when she looks like she's barely 5'5". As for the 6'1" for the husband, that's questionable. Sometimes in pics, he does look that height but when Spears puts on her heels, he's doesn't. So who knows? As for Michael, he really is 5'10", a solid 5'10" and nothing shorter. He had on low-heeled dress shoes when he got measured for the mugshot so hey, maybe he's a tad over the 5'10" mark and close to 5'11". Don't shortchange him to make Britney taller ;-)
Mr. R said on 26/Apr/05
Kevin Federline has been listed most often at 6-1. I only see him with Brit, so it is hard to measure him against anyone else.
leonari said on 26/Apr/05
Micxhael Jackson is 5'9"!! Not 5'11"!!!! On is police mugshot he is listed at 5'11" cause he is wearing his plateau shoes these days like he does often when not performing!! Britney is 5'5 max...

Not to get too far off of subject, but does anyone know her husband's, Kevin Federline, height? Standing next to her even when she's in sneakers he only looks 2-3 inches taller than her.

Even from this pic you see that halle is taller just because she wears boots.The pic of britney with alexandra stevenson is from 1999 and britney grew taller since than.If you look at britney in the last 2 years you can see that she is tall

[Editor Rob: yes, that's what I'm saying - judging ladies heights depends a lot more on their posture and heel differences. If you look at the britney and beyonce (who does look a solid 169cm) pictures on Getty images I just can't see britney being over this 5ft 5 mark...but yes, 165cm is still a possibility...she may have gained a bit extra in 18-21 years range...]

britney walked barefoot 2 a gas station restroom so u should check her height right there. she 5'5 because my mother is 5'5 and she stood next 2 britney.
Raz (yes, the same one as above!) said on 28/Mar/05
I still believe she's no more than 5'4".

The Alexandra Stevenson pic says very little.
1. We don't know how tall Stevenson was back then.
2. They're not equally distant from the camera.
With a wide-angle lens, even small differences can make peoples' relative heights vary a lot.
3. Finally, Britney's soles look thicker than Stevenson's.

[Editor Rob: Stevenson at 18 in that pic can be seen at 5ft 11.5...yes the distance favours britney slightly although even with such a lens I agree that there is still easily 6.5 inches difference]
J. said on 20/Mar/05
Oh yeah, guys, don't think it's only movie stars who fib their heights, I could go and on about athlethes (particulary in the NFL and in boxing)whose height is jacked up. I met several of them, and with the exception of two, all were smaller than what their profile listed them as. Anyway, about Britney, she an easy one to figure out as she looks dead on 5'4". With heels on, she's a good height (5'6"-ish maybe). There's no way she's 5'6" in her stocking feet as I've seen her without shoes on television before and she looked exactly 5'4"-ish.
CelebHeights Editor said on 17/Feb/05
Jimbo, I saw the pictures and yes, without doubt Britney is 0.5-0.75 inches taller than Madonna, especially since they both had the same heel size. I also saw pictures at a 1999 (when Britney was just about 18) tennis event where she's beside Mary Pierce (who is measured properly) and both wearing trainers - she's maybe just possibly a small amount over 5ft 4, but not 5ft 5. Madonna these days is under 5ft 4 for sure.
jimbo said on 17/Feb/05
Britney Spears said on mtv's TRL that she is 5'5 and I would say she is because madonna is supposedly 5'4 and a half and britney looks at least an inch taller than madonna when ever they are standing together , britney is at least 5'4 .
