  • I'd say maybe 16 or 18. I've gained a few pounds since then, but basically am the same size.

  • I havent gotten any taller since I was about 20. I remember at 18 I was 5'5" but now at 22 I am 5'7". I have noticed lately that my boobs are still growing also. At 18 I was a small A now I am a large C.

  • We thought I was done in 7th grade, when I was 13. I was 4'10" To my surprise, I went for a physical before my senior year and I had grown 3/4 of an inch! I was so excited! So now I am 4'10 3/4" but I always round up to 4'11" lol
