A towering teen has broken the world record for the longest legs on the planet - and she's not even finished growing yet! Confident 17-year-old Maci Currin stands at a massive 6ft 10ins tall. Her legs make up 60 per cent of her total height, according to Guinness. She now holds the record for having the world’s longest legs for a female - and the longest legs on any teenager. Heartbreakingly, she was bullied growing up but soon came to embrace her figure.

“I was never bullied for my legs," said Maci, who confirmed other members of her family are tall. "I was bullied because I was taller than everyone else. Around my sophomore year I just stopped caring what people thought of me, and once I just stopped caring I wasn’t affected by anything."
She added: “I hope that tall women can see that height is a gift and that you shouldn’t be ashamed that you’re tall. You should really just embrace it."
But she has other ambitions as well. Maci wants to set the record for being the world’s tallest professional model. She has 1.7 million followers on TikTok - and another 50,000 on Instagram. The teen regularly posts about confidence and body image and has built up quite a fan base.
