View Full Version : Does my butt look big in this? (Classic length measurements please!)

December 9th, 2013, 05:57 PM
Okay so I really hope there isn't a thread identical to this, I did a search (on Google, I know the search on here can be a bit funky) and got nothing sooo... Also if this would be better off in another forum, mods please feel free to move it :)

On to business...

My goal for Christmas 2014 is Classic Length. I just measured where I'm currently at, what Classic is on me and using my average growth (not factoring in trims), well uh, I hope my maths is wrong because it's apparently going to take 20 months for my hair to grow over my ass and reach Classic. Is that about average or do I have an incredibly big ass over here? o.o Classic for me is 43" which sounds about right, until I say that I'm only 4'10".

Is my butt just big or what's going on over here? I'm rather sad now, my goal seems impossible, booooo!

So, anyone care to tell me their height and how many inches Classic is on them? I need to know that I'm at least (semi) normal :lol:

December 9th, 2013, 06:13 PM
I think the problem is that you've got an incredibly big ass. lol, just kidding as I can't :eye: see your ass.
I'm really tired and can't do the math right now but your post just struck a funny bone and I had to comment.
When more rested, I'll put on my thinking cap. I'm sure you're "normal, whatever that means. :bigtongue: Just can't seem to help myself tonight, I think I better sign off and go check the size of my butt! :D

December 9th, 2013, 06:19 PM
I just measured what classic would be on me, and I got 43". :flower:
I'm 5'7" and a pear shape, if that helps.

Sorry I can't help more - I hope others will chime in. :)

Classic on me is also 43 inches, and I'm eight inches taller than you! Then again, I have the kind of legs film producers like to slap a saxophone solo on. My husband and I are the same height but you wouldn't know it if you saw us sitting side by side. Aren't proportions funny?

Oh, I have a HUGE amount of ga-donka-junk in my trunk. I was just lamenting the long trek over the mountain that classic is gonna be if I go for that. It might rival some epic Tolkien journey.

Anyhoo, I'm about 5'6" and classic seems roughly about 45".

(It also looks like waist to hip is gonna take way over a year in itself as well, but that's another thread.)

December 9th, 2013, 06:42 PM
Nope, classic 43 inches on me and I'm also short I'm 5'1.

It's all about proportions, I'm short but very busty (long torso, high waist) and I do not have a big butt. In fact I'm trying to get one :lol:. My BFF is 5'6 and I don't get an upper hand on measurements until past classic, her legs are longer and mine are shorter.

December 9th, 2013, 08:28 PM
It's 44" for me at 5"5.

December 9th, 2013, 09:29 PM
Classic is 43" for me, I'm 5'4, and have textbook sewing pattern size 12 proportions except for my muscle, lol.

December 9th, 2013, 09:37 PM
Yep yep.

I just hit hip and I think it's going take me at least 18mos to hit classic. All all about the curvature of my juicy beeehiiind. Lol.

Whatever. A year+ will pass either way. I'll just wait it about and be classic in 2015!

December 10th, 2013, 12:33 AM
I'm 5'5 and classic on me is around 46 inches :)

December 10th, 2013, 12:37 AM
I'm 5'3-4"-ish and classic is 45-46" on me! My backside is rather rotund. lol

December 10th, 2013, 12:58 AM
The one chart showing lengths I remember seeing, I think on here?
My classic will be the chart gal's "thigh/fingertip." Lol

December 10th, 2013, 02:31 AM
I'm 5,51 feet (168 cm) and classic is 42 inches on me, but then I have a pathetic flat arse.. I wish it was bigger! My ass is 10 inches long (never thought I'd write that sentence!!)

Everyone are shaped differently, thank goodness!
I think that you just have a longer torso then legs - nothing weird with that and it's very common :)

My legs start exactly after half of my bodyheight, which is kinda weird.. But my arms are way too long - aren't they supposed to be as wide from fingertip to fingertip as your height? Mine are far longer.. Boxer's arms my dad always said. ;) Fingertip length on me will take a while XD

This made me laugh so hard!

December 10th, 2013, 02:57 AM
I just measured how long is classic on me and i got around 40,5'', and i'm about 5'4''. Right now my hair is around 29,5'' so i have quiet a time to go.

December 10th, 2013, 04:10 AM
Classic is 43" on me and I'm 5'5". I have some junk in the trunk lol, but the rest of my torso is pretty short.

December 10th, 2013, 08:31 AM
rough estimate (no tape measure here at work) is about 43-44" on me at 5'5"

December 10th, 2013, 08:50 AM
I'm 5'1" and classic for me would be 41"-42"

December 10th, 2013, 10:53 AM
This is such a great thread, LOL!

December 10th, 2013, 10:58 AM
From tail bone to classic on me is about 6 to 7 inches which is 12 months to 14. Going to hip you add another 4 ish inches and another 8 ish months. Woohoo hair math.

December 10th, 2013, 11:03 AM
... It might rival some epic Tolkien journey. ...

The Lord Of The Ringlets? *snerk!*

I also have a butt that just won't quit, I suspect my travails from my current APL to (hopefully!) Classic will be epic. But hopefully with fewer Uruk'hai... ;-)

December 10th, 2013, 11:10 AM
Last I measured, it was 45" straight down for me, but the journey is rather longer when you have to take the route over the mountains. Also, my trunk seems to have acquired more junk since that measurement.

ETA: I'm 5'7". Short torso but huge butt.

December 10th, 2013, 11:10 AM
tailbone on me is about 38" and classic on me is 44.5"... and I'm 5'5" ... but I do have a big ass lol thank you squats ( I love my big butt, I think it's awesome)

December 10th, 2013, 12:12 PM
I am 5'5" tall and classic is about 45".

December 10th, 2013, 03:43 PM
I'm not going to classic, but I have something odd to share... Fingertip length and classic are pretty much exactly the same on me. Because of this I can get away with wearing short shorts at school because of the "fingertip length" rule! :lol: I blame my long torso.

I'm 5'3.5'' and classic is 45'', give or take an inch or two. It's hard to measure by myself.

December 10th, 2013, 05:50 PM
Mine is at 45' which is a little past classic. My behind is a roundy moundy!! I am on the computer all of the time so I need to get up off of the roundy moundy and walk or work out.

December 10th, 2013, 08:02 PM
I think the problem is that you've got an incredibly big ass. lol, just kidding as I can't :eye: see your ass.

Ha ha! Thanks for the laugh! My classic measurement is 43.5" and I am 5' 4.5"

December 10th, 2013, 11:56 PM
I'm 5 foot 5.5. Classic on me is 43 inches. I have a short torso and long legs for my height, and a big round butt! Lol. Hope that helps.

December 11th, 2013, 05:41 PM
WOW! I'm amazed at how many of us with different heights have 43" for Classic length. :p I'm about 5'4", 60 yo with a draggy butt and I, too need 43" for Classic :p

December 12th, 2013, 08:42 AM
I'm 5" 3 and it's about 42 on me.

December 12th, 2013, 08:47 AM
WOW! I'm amazed at how many of us with different heights have 43" for Classic length. :p I'm about 5'4", 60 yo with a draggy butt and I, too need 43" for Classic :p

I'm 5'2" with a *ahem* padded rear and I also need 43" for Classic! :hmm:
Theory! We're all measuring wrong and the universal measurement for Classic Length is 42! ;) :p :silly:

December 12th, 2013, 12:00 PM
At 5'3" with a long torso and somewhat proportionate measurements (my legs are a bit short, I have only a 27" inseam) classic on me is at 44", about twelve inches past hip. I am somewhat pear shaped so that probably adds a few inches.

December 12th, 2013, 12:02 PM
Haha, maybe I grabbed the tape two inches too low! I just missed the "universal" measurement.

December 12th, 2013, 12:33 PM
I'm 5'10", and classic on me was 46" - 46.5". (I cut back to hip from about 48" due to thin ends.)

The Lord Of The Ringlets? *snerk!* :p

I'm 5'7" and classic on me is somewhere between 44" and 45" because I suck at measuring. My butt isn't big but it's kind of saggy.

December 12th, 2013, 03:06 PM

I wrote in another thread about how it really has nothing to do with height, and more to do with proportions. Most humans are proportionate, you learn this in art class the cannons of proportions are uniform, rarel do you get someone who is completely out of them. If someone has big eyes the truth is that they are "slightly" bigger (usually by millimiters!). Most developed torsos are around the same, we all have the same bone structure. That reall does explains why someone who's 5'6 (BFF) has the same inch measurement as me who's 5'1, because we all share the basics cannons of proportions (one eye length between our eyes give or take, it will never be two eyes it bight be closer together or father apart but it's not going to be radical).

Now the ONLY people that defied all proportion rules were "little" people (midgets, sorry I don't know what the PC word would be) but I'm talking 4 feet and under. It was VERY hard to draw them accurately.

December 12th, 2013, 03:12 PM
It's a while since I measured but as far as I can remember Classic is 42 or 43 on me and I am 5 foot 10 high.


I just measured and Classic for me is 44 inches.

WL = 33 inches
HL = 36 inches
TBL = 40 inches
CL = 44 inches

December 12th, 2013, 04:19 PM
I'm 5'8" and classic would probably be about 44-45 inches on me. It feels like it is going to be forever and a day before I get there though. :(

December 12th, 2013, 04:51 PM
I'm 4'11 and with a round bubble butt and classic on me is 42"

December 13th, 2013, 04:30 PM
Wowzah this got a lot of replies! :D Glad to see I'm not alone! Seems 42" - 45" is pretty much ballpark average, no matter the height of the individual, it's kinda cool... I'm 4'10", reasonably curvy (hourglass, waist is 10"+ smaller than my chest/hips) (bra= UK size 32E/34DD - depending on the brand) and I do have a bum that you can ''rest a tea tray on'' as my grandma likes to say :lol: I got DBF to double trouble tripple wipple check and Classic is 42" on me, not 43", so I'm looking at 18 months, not 20, but still, dayummmm! Maybe I'm just impatient ;)
