Her left leg is 135.267 cm (53.255 in) long, according to the official Guinness World Records website, while her right leg is 134.3 cm (52.874 in). She said, “I was never bullied for my legs… I was bullied because I was taller than everyone.”
Maci Currin, a 17-year-old resident, recently broke two world records in Texas, USA. First, the longest legs in the world (female) and second, a teenager's longest legs.
In the Guinness World Records 2021 book, the teenager's extremely long legs, both measuring over four feet, have earned her a place.
In 2018, she first discovered she had longer-than-average legs when she couldn't find a pair of leggings that fit her and a custom pair was suggested.
Currin's left leg measures 135.3 cm (4 feet five inches) and her right leg measures 134.3 cm (4 feet four inches). Her legs represent 60 percent (208.28 cm) of her total height of six feet ten inches.
Currin's family members, based in Cedar Park, are all relatively tall, but none of them match her extraordinary height or leg length.
Currin has therefore decided to apply for the Guinness World Record for the longest legs (female) in the world.
The Guinness World Record for longest legs (female) was previously held by Russia's Ekaterina Lisina. Lisina 's legs are four feet three inches in size, and she stands at a stunning height of six feet nine inches.
Maci Currin admitted that her height and long legs come with both challenges and benefits.
She said, “I was never bullied for my legs… I was bullied because I was taller than everyone.” Currin also recalled how she blocked out her bullies:
“Around sophomore year I just stopped caring what people thought of me and once I just stopped caring I wasn’t affected by anything.” Her long legs also make her an exceptional volleyball player and have helped her secure a spot on her high school’s volleyball team.
Inspiring tall women to embrace their height, Currin said, "I hope that tall women can see that height is a gift and that you should not be ashamed of being tall, you should really embrace it."
In addition, the teenager, who is already a popular figure on TikTok, shared her plans to study at a UK-based college and break the record for being the 's tallest professional model in the future.
