Meet The Woman Who Claims To Have The World's Longest Legs. See Photos
Posted On 25/01/2017
A mother of two whose legs measure 51.5 inches from hip to heel claims she has the world’s longest pins. Caroline Arthur, a former model who lives in Melbourne, is 6ft 2in tall – meaning her legs account for around 69 per cent of her frame.
The 39-year-old dermotherapist is now challenging the current Guinness World Record holder – Russia’s Svetlana Pankratova – in a bid to claim the coveted title. “I believe that they are definitely the longest in Australia and, as far as I know, in America, too,” she said. “The lady in the Guinness Book of World Records has legs that are 51.9 inches long so it’s quite close. “Because it’s so close I think it is worth contacting them and finding out exactly where they measure from and getting an official, accurate measurement done.” Caroline has passed her impressive height on to her two children, 13-year-old Cooper, who is already 6ft 2in, and Zoe, who at 15 stands at 5ft 9in. Caroline, who is married to builder, Cameron, says her mother-in-law makes her clothes for her and that her husband thoughtfully designed their house to have 10ft ceilings and extra-high kitchen worktops to accommodate his super-sized family.
