I have a case for her being 5'11-6'0. Here is her with some 4-5in. Heels, about 3in of actual height if that, about the same height as 6'5 jason pierre-paul. 5'11 minimum.
jeff said on 30/Sep/16
Seems about right, maybe a bit taller though, like 5'10.5-5'11
Karl said on 18/Aug/16
She is way shorter than maria sharapova . Maria is little over than 6' and katebis about 3-4 inches shorter than her so that says she is a legit 5'9" no more than that.
J said on 26/Jul/16
I saw Kate Upton walking in NYC, literally was two feet from her. She's easily 6'. Not exaggerating at all. I'd say she's probably closer to 6'1". She was freakishly tall, wearing only sneakers.

[Editor Rob: maybe the clothing looks better with models who are 5ft 9-11 range? They do have more 6ft 3-5 range models but they seem to never list them above 6ft 2.5 range. It's bizarre to me. Just measure and put the correct height.

Personally, I think the modelling industry should employ people of a variety of sizes so it is more realistic with how clothes/styles look, but then they are selling an image, an 'ideal'. 5ft 5 145 pound models, regardless of how pretty their face, are not wanted for runway.]

Good points. Yes, for some reason 6'3-5 is rarely cited in male modelling, I guess it's because they think those heights sound too big and clumsy or something. Yeah for advertising you can understand using only super attractive people to bring out the best in their product and have normal people longing to look like that if they buy the item, but for runway you're not just showing the product, you're showing functionality too, how does the product look when worn? At fashion shows they ought to have a range of heights and builds just to show how they look on different people.
Editor Rob: to be fair, I find models like Ashley Graham very attractive, moreso than a model that is very skinny.

5'10.

5'9.5-5'9.75. She hates her boobs .-.
Jacky Huynh said on 2/May/16
Definitely not under 178cm. She could even be 181cm!
Allie said on 1/Feb/16
What are you talking about Charlie.. she's at least 177 cm!
Also, Swift is not under 5'8! She's appears at least in the 174-175 range most of the time.. unless her posture's bad.
littlesue said on 19/Jan/16
Charlie, someone wearing 6 inch heels will not be 6 inches taller, its just the back of the leg thats raised not the whole foot, 6 inches probably give about 4.5 inches of added height
John said on 18/Jan/16
@charlie
First you say Upton's 5 foot 8, and all of a sudden, you say she is 5 foot 7 now? I'm quite confused.
Crane said on 18/Jan/16
5'7.......... What a ridiculous claimed! She's about 5'9.5 - 5'10.
charlie said on 17/Jan/16
she is no where near 5 foot 10. I am 5 foot 10 and im her height when shes wearing high heels. Kate Upton is 5 foot 7 inches in height no more than that
charlie said on 17/Jan/16
Kate Upton is 5 foot 8 inches in height (Flat feet) She is 2 inches taller than Jimmy Fallon who's listed as 6 feet tall and shes wearing 6 inch heels maybe 8 inch. and Taylor Swift is 5 foot 6 inches as shown in a photo with her and Kate Upton and she looked 2 inches shorter than her. And Tayor looked 3 to 4 inches taller than Ellen DeGeneres who is 5 foot 7 and Taylor was wearing Playform shoes. If she took those shoes of she would be eye level wit Ellen. See Most people assume Kate Upton and Taylor Swift are monsterous size women and yes with 8 inch heels any woman will be monsterous. Put a 5 foot 4 females in 8 inch shoes guess what? she becomes 6 feet tall.I am a 5 foot 10 male flat foot and if I wore cowboy boots with a huge heel I would look like a giant literally. Kate does not look that tall even with extremely high heels on.

Also, modeling has changed. Cindy has said that models are now getting thinner and she probably wouldn't be a model with her body. As for Kate Upton's weight, I'd put her around 145lbs. Maybe shave or add a few pounds. Anyways, Kate was never really a high fashion runway model, the only runways she ran was for swimwear and maybe minor no dress brands. She was more or less strictly commerical modeling from SI to swimwear. She does grace high fashion magazines though.

But enough about her weight and measurements for me. She's 177-178 no more or less.
Allie said on 9/Dec/15
Cindy Crawford's weight is only much more healtheir looking cause she's shorter and better proportioned. Most of the models who are her weight are the taller ones, like Toni Garrn and Karlie Kloss height. Though I don't if she weighed that much younger, her modeling card lists stats then they do today, as she's gained weight and her body changed,
Tunman said on 24/Nov/15
Ironically,sportsheight,those 5'8-11 models basically super thin not to say anorexic are miles away from what a healthy woman should be,maybe Cindy Crawford at 5'9 and 130Lbs was one of the rare with acceptable weight.At a solid 5'9.5 and 135 I rarely see a woman thinner than myself and the ideal for 5'8-11 is between 130 and 155 if you take into consideration the whole parts of the body.I know a girl who is 173-4 cm and around 115Lbs,I can tell you she looks quite blemish for eating so little and gives a frail though tall impression
Allie said on 14/Nov/15
LittleSue, if you ever read this or see this, do you think these could be closer to her measurements? 36-28/30-35.5?
I use to think she was probably 38-30-36 but looking at more shorts, it's her waist and boobs that had me fooled. Her hips aren't really a stand out feature, but it's obvious bigger than listed waist that me thinking.
Janet said on 12/Nov/15
Yep. I think this is a spot on. She's a tall 5'10 meaning she could even pass for 5'11 but definitely not shorter than 5'10
Will said on 8/Nov/15
Rob. If Cameron Diaz is 5'8. Then Kate Upton isnt 5'10. She is more 5'9 than 5'10
Allie said on 3/Nov/15
Rob aside from little lies here and there another reason why height could be different is cause of shoes! I once read from a guy who interned at a model agency said that sometimes girls would show up in sneakers or converse and when asked to go measure, sometimes they don't have time for them to take the shoes as they're dealing with other people so they ask the model to just get measured with shoes on! Either that or the model shows up bright and early in the morning so the morning height is listed.
[Editor Rob: that might account for some instances, I can believe that.]
littlesue said on 3/Nov/15
I used to measure for bra's in one of my jobs in the past, if the back size goes up the cup size comes down, for eg, a 34d would be similar cup size to 36c, so a 36e which is what Kate may be would be like a 38dd or 40d or 42c
Duhon said on 1/Nov/15
littlesue said on 10/Oct/15
She could be a c cup if she 38 or 40, looks more like a 36e to me and maybe 28 to 30 waist, she has very flat hips though and skinny legs, typical upside down pair

She is certainly not a C cup. How to say this? but there were some leaked or hacked nude pics of her that were released on the net some time ago, if one were to stumble on those pics you would see she is possibly beyond a D in all honesty.
littlesue said on 1/Nov/15
A Model is supposdely a 'clothes horse' so you notice the clothes and not the model, thats why they would'nt have a shorter curvier woman who would fill the clothes out too well and then they would be more noticed than the clothes. There is also the idea that a lot of male designers are gay so they want their models to look like the young men they see as ideal.
SportsHeight said on 1/Nov/15
Rob, do you have any idea why modeling agencies look for women who are 5 to 7 inches above average (if you consider the average around 5'4"), and men who are only 2 to 4 inches above average (if you consider the average around 5'10")? It seems the fashion industry is more interested in having men who are closer to normality in terms of stature. 6'1", the benchmark male modeling height, is only in the 88th to 89th percentile for men, whereas 5'10" is in like the 99+ range for women. What are your thoughts?
[Editor Rob: maybe the clothing looks better with models who are 5ft 9-11 range? They do have more 6ft 3-5 range models but they seem to never list them above 6ft 2.5 range. It's bizarre to me. Just measure and put the correct height.

Allie said on 8/Oct/15
They do lie about measurements as well. We all know Kate's not just a mere c cup. And her waist and proportions look too big in contrast to models who have stats similar to hers.
Dom said on 24/Jul/15
Looks a very solid 5'10 but there is no way in hell her waist is only 25 inches.
hector said on 31/May/15
I agree 5'10. Rob how much does she weight , what do you think 140lbs maybe?
[Editor Rob: probably nearer to 150 than 40]
Jack said on 11/May/15
she is 5.10
Skye said on 24/Apr/15
I do see her as a 5'10er. In several pictures she was taller than 5'8 Cam in both heels and flip flops.

Although, I swear I saw a picture where Kate was wearing shoes and Cam was wearing heels yet Kate still looked taller. Those heels probably weren't that big then.
tiny said on 10/Apr/15
In the pic with Taylor Swift, it looks like Kate is ready to cradle Taylor in her arms. Kate could do it with ease too cos at 160 lbs she is huge compared to Taylor who must be about 120 lbs soaking wet.
Skye said on 10/Apr/15
Taylor Swift is not 5-11.
This site lists her at 5-9.5 and people tend to agree that she's more or so in the 5-9 range.
Josh said on 7/Apr/15
She looks 5'9
littlesue said on 4/Mar/15
She quite broad backed so I would reckon 38d
Silent_D said on 4/Mar/15
178cm. No way she is 34C. At least 34DD.
Greg said on 14/Feb/15
I think she's 6 ft. In pics with Taylor Swift, she is about and inch taller even though her heels are smaller, and Taylor is 5 ft 11.
S.J.H said on 3/Feb/15
PR Photo makes her skinny. Def 5'10 and nothing over
Hetty said on 10/Jan/15
She seems more 5'9, even a strong 5'8 at times.
Maximus said on 29/Nov/14
She may seem at times taller than 5'10" but you have to understand that 5'10" is not short and with shoes or high heels she can be anywhere from 5'11" to 6'2..so 5'10" is probably correct.
Just said on 27/Nov/14
With similar footwear she's certainly taller than Taylor Swift. Click Here
BGee said on 27/Nov/14
If Diaz is 5'8.5 then she's 5'9.5 max.
yoyo said on 2/Oct/14
Kate Upton is a smoke show. I'd guess she's a tad under 5'10.

Verlander is 6'5" or 196 cm.
If she is 5'10" or 178 cm, there are only 7" or 18 cm in that photo?
She is 5'8" or 173 cm.
Ed said on 11/Jul/14
She seems 2 inches taller than Diaz from the pictures I saw from earlier posts below. So her being 5'10 and Diaz being 5'8 is spot on for me.
Somebody's Problem said on 7/Jul/14
I personally see her as 5'9".75 (177cm ), sometimes she slouches a little, and that makes her look like she's 5'9" or 5'9".25 (176), but she's practically 5'10.
Rob is almost always right, so yeah, this is it...
176,2Tunman said on 4/Jul/14
Absolutely hot.But maybe not quite 5'10.She seems shorter than Tyra Banks though Tyra could be a strong 5'10 like 5'10.25.
Looks too often 5'9 in my opinion.
Rob,maybe a listing between 5'9 and 10 would be a better compromise?
Lenad is sexy said on 7/Jun/14
I could be eye to eye with Kate. She seems a weak 5'10 to me
tiny said on 19/May/14
Kate Upton at 5'10" & 160 lbs is a tall, well built and very good looking woman
Sean.rt said on 14/May/14
Guys "4 inch" heels don't give actual 4 inches
Glen said on 3/May/14
Rob, is it possible she's 5'11 or 6'0? She seems taller than 5'10 to me
littlesue said on 22/Apr/14
I would say around 5ft 10,She not a patch on our pin up Kelly Brook, kelly more hour glass with better legs, Kate has flat hips, no bum and spindly legs
Glen said on 21/Apr/14
I think she is even taller than 5'10, but she's at least that tall
Knowen said on 10/Apr/14
She looked an inch or 2 taller than kimmel in high heels
Yupyup said on 24/Dec/13
Taller than Lily Aldridge, who's about 5'8" to 5'9" I'd say 5'10" easy. Click Here

Rob is she a strong 5 ft 10 or a weak one
MetalKid said on 9/Nov/13
I didn't know she was that tall! She's a really good looking girl. Probably like 6'2" in heels.
Toddy said on 3/Nov/13
She is so hot that I can't focus on her height
J.Lee said on 20/Aug/13
Is she a legit 5 ft 10 at all times Rob? Rob I have a question. On some days I am taller than others by a quarter inch at the same time of day. Which day is more accurate?
tiny said on 19/Jul/13
Kate Upton - 5'9" & 150 lbs , Cameron Diaz - 5'8.5" & 125 lbs
J.Lee said on 17/Jul/13
Rob the pics with Diaz confirms she could use a downgrade
steven said on 15/Jul/13
Rob, what do you think about her pics with Cameron Diaz? I don`t think she looks a full 2 inches taller.

I don't like when they airbrush her so much and always make her look skinnier. She is hot the way is. 178cm.

5'9 or a little under. She's shorter than Rosie Huntington Whitely + Brooklyn Decker.

From what i've seen i'm not sure she's 5'10. 176-177cm might be closer. Gorgeous girl though, love her curves.
Conti said on 13/Feb/13
I would say 5'9 solid and 5'10 in heels.
Greg said on 30/Jan/13
@Peter I don't think Jason Pierre-Paul is really 6'5 because that is NOT a 7 inch difference.
Silent d said on 22/Jan/13
5 foot 10.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Jan/13
Looks 5'9.5"-5'10", 5'9" flat in the above photo though, but let's be honest, none of us guys really give a rat's ass about her height when looking at her..
Peter said on 11/Jan/13
She's genuinely tall: 5'10" seems right on target to me. I spotted a few pictures of her with the 6'5" tall Jason Pierre-Paul that are helpful.
(1) Click Here - about 2 inches shorter with 5 inch heels. Would put her at 5'10", as stated.
(2) Click Here - both wearing sneakers, but certainly not dwarfed by him completely. Viewing this and other pics from that event, I'd say she reaches about the end of his nose, again consistent with about 5'10".
SAK said on 12/Dec/12
@GD, those heels would not give 12cm of extra height. Maybe 8cm @ best.

She is 177-178cm, the listing is fine.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 12/Nov/12
@ GD - Tom Ford is 183cm? 3cm shoes = 186cm.Now Kate isnt wearing 12cm heels there! Little platform on front maybe 3cm(at most) then up Id say 6cm..maybe 9cm at best overall. So take 9 away from 186 = 177cm.
Id say she is between 176.5-177.5cm so 5'10 is pretty fair..she looks tall.
GD said on 25/Oct/12
Click Here
Tom Ford is 183 cm plus 3 cm of men's classic shoes make him 186 cm.
Kate wears 12 cm hels: so 186-12=174 cm.
Kate Upton is 173-174 cm, according with the vip practice to increase height of 2 inch.
J.Lee said on 7/Oct/12
Anonym, if Jimmy is 1.75 inches taller, than that is an accurate photo. See, he would be 2.75 inches taller with 1 in shoes. But she has 4 inch heels that make her about 3 inches taller.
RV said on 3/Aug/12
176cm
Anonym said on 23/Jul/12
Mmm...
How can she be 5' 10''?
Look here: Click Here and here: Click Here
Fallon is 5' 11.75'': only 1.75'' of difference and she wears at last 4'' heel...
