Meet Holly Burt, the girl who claims to have the longest legs in America.
The 20-year-old design student’s pins measure in at 49.5 inches, trumping model Lauren Williams’ previous record of 49 inches.
6ft 5in Holly told The Mirror she used to get bullied for her height, but since moving from Florida to New York she says men can’t get enough of her figure:
Back in middle school I was called daddy long legs, tree or giraffe – but the dating scene has gotten better since I moved to New York.
I definitely have seen guys come up to me who have a fetish for long legs. When people see me in heels their jaws hit the floor.
I have a rule that I won’t date anyone under 6ft 3in and fortunately New York is full of tall, hot men. If I see someone in a bar who is taller than me I will go straight over and try to chat him up. My legs are definitely an asset now, being older I feel like people appreciate them more.
Extreme height runs in the family, and Holly first realised she was destined to become as tall as her relatives in 2nd grade, where she was taller than her teacher.
For now Holly’s focus is on finishing her studies at college, but hopes her legs will create opportunities for her in the future, saying:
I love the attention that I get. I’ve been tall all my life and sometimes I was picked on so now it’s like I’m being recognised for something good.
I’m hoping my legs will generate good opportunities – I’m very open to modeling again.
