Woman, 29, had world's second longest pair of legs - and loves showing them off

 Rentsenkhorloo Bud, 29, has the second longest pair of legs in the world

Her legs are up there with the longest in the world, but still Rentsenkhorloo Bud wants to raise her game in platform heels.

In her stocking soles, Rentsenkhorloo, 29, stands 6ft 9in tall.

And her legs measure 52.8ins from hip to heel, just short of the 53ins world record held by 16-year-old Maci Currin, from Austin, Texas.

Rentsenkhorloo, who is originally from Mongolia and now lives in Chicago, comes from a tall family, her dad 6ft 10in and mum, 6ft 1in.

But rather than hide her legs, Ren loves nothing more than to show them off in shorts and high heels.

Ren said: “I like to wear shorts and high heels especially so my legs look more long.

“I love my long legs, and I think they make me more beautiful.”

Although Ren believes she has the longest legs in the world she insists she has no desire to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.

She said: “I'm not planning to do it because I don't have any interest in it.”

Being above average height comes with its fair share of challenges: from finding clothes that fit to being too big for doorways, Ren’s extraordinary height means she sometimes quite literally doesn’t fit in with the world.

Ren said: “The doorways are so short for me. I hate to hit my head on doorways!

"Finding clothes is really challenging. My shoe size is US 13 and you can’t find any shoes in Asia and even in Mongolia and Korea.

"I tried to go shopping in the United States a few times when I came here, but I couldn't find any clothes.

“I just try to buy some clothes online.

“Even when I was in the first grade, I was the same height as my teacher - 168cm. I was a little girl and I wanted cute clothes, but you can't find any cute clothes in this age, in this size.”

Although Ren wasn’t bullied at school, she admits feeling less positive about her height when she was younger.

 She says she likes to wear high heels to show off her legs

She said: “When I was younger, I felt so bad because of my height. Some people made me feel uncomfortable, but nowadays it seems like I'm seen more as unique, so that's why I feel so good.

“In the last 15 years, I started to like my height and I'm really comfortable with my body and also long legs.”

And having been tall all her life, Ren couldn’t imagine being any other way.

“I live with my long legs, and my tall height my entire life. So, I think it's just a normal thing for me.”

And now Ren has even had the opportunity to do some modelling work.

She said: “Many people asked me: ‘are you a model?’ so I feel great when they ask me that.

"I do modelling part time, and I just started to work with one brand, which is leggings for tall girls.

“Being tall is beautiful, and you can look so unique from other people.”
