Apparently, everything is taller in Texas too.
Maci Currin, 17, has officially broken the Guinness World Record for having the longest legs.
Currin “is strutting into the brand new Guinness World Records 2021 book after being confirmed as having the world’s longest legs (female) and the longest legs on a teenager,” according to Guinness World Records’ Kristen Stephenson.
Currin’s legs make up about 60 percent of her six-feet-10-inches height, with her left leg measuring at 135.267 cm (53.255 in) and her right leg at 134.3 cm (52.874 in), as reported by Stephenson.

“I was never bullied for my legs, I was bullied because I was taller than everyone,” Maci shared with Stephenson. “Around sophomore year I just stopped caring what people thought of me and once I just stopped caring, I wasn’t affected by anything.”
The Texas teen said she didn’t realize her legs were unusually long until about two years ago, when someone asked her if she wanted a custom pair of leggings because standard leggings didn’t fit her.
She went on to research whether she could hold the Guinness title, and now wants to encourage other tall women to “see that height is a gift,” adding that “you shouldn’t be ashamed that you’re tall, you should really embrace it.”
Since officially making history, Currin has also achieved TikTok fame, and enjoys making videos that show off her record-breaking legs.
