You may have seen Caroline’s legs whipping up a media storm around the globe as she embarks on a mission to challenge the Guinness World Record for ‘The Longest Legs In The World”. As a magazine and online destination for tall women, we wanted to know more! So, keep an eye on our Inspiration pages this weekend to read what Caroline had to say in our recent TALL GUIDES Q&A.
Caroline Arthur, a 39-year-old Australian woman is set to challenge the current Guinness World Record Holder for having the ‘Longest Legs in the World.’ The current record holder is Svetlana Pankratova, whose legs measure 51.9 inches.
The Current and Former USA “Longest Legs” title holders Chase Kennedy and Holly Burt have legs that measure 62-64% of their entire bodies. However, the two are much taller than Caroline. Caroline’s legs measure an extraordinary 51.6 inches, or approximately 70% of her entire body.
Caroline didn’t set out to be the Guinness Book of Records Holder. It was actually one of her girlfriends, who after seeing an article about the battle of two girls from the USA having a “leg war”, who went on to post a comment on the social media platform “….Caz you’ve got them on toast ….”.and then proceeded to challenge them to a “leg off!” This was noticed by USA radio journalist, Michael Thomas, 12 months later who reached out to Caroline.
Since then, and virtually overnight, Caroline has become a media sensation. Accumulating more than 200,000 YouTube hits within 48 hours. She appeared on Channel 7’s Sunrise and New Zealand radio. Even the New York Post (and TALL GUIDES!) has written about her.
“It has just utterly amazed me that my legs, which I have lived with my whole life, have made such a huge impact with so many people. It is crazy!” said Caroline.
We’ve already grabbed our tape measures over in #TEAMTALL and many of us have clocked in around 48 inches. A few measured up at an impressively close 51 inches from hip to toe. So get your measuring sticks out ladies. And let us know whether you can give Caroline a run for her money! Stay tuned… We’ll be hearing more from Caroline this weekend on our Inspiration pages.
