Notes: (Written by the other writer of course)
There are a few criteria for this list.
1) Only women whose heights are verifiable to be true will be added to the list. People whose height cannot be verified (or hoax) will be listed at the bottom with an asterisk denoting the lack of verification.
2) Women whose height may have decreased due to their age will be denoted as such. We will try to list the actual height in the list, with a side note for her decrease in height. A few of the height statistics come from sources whose claims of height may be different due to conflicts of interest. These stats are denoted as such.

If you know of any information which could help improve this list, reply to this thread to add more sources and verifications.


Here is another list of the tallest women in History. Note that some of the women on the list are no longer living. I found the list from the Top20List.com website link HERE.

1. Trijntje Keever, 8’4.4″, 255.0cm

The oldest and tallest woman in recorded history. She lived from 1616 to 1633.

2. Zeng Jinlian, 8′ 2″, 248.9 cm   (Most sources she would be 8′ 1″ if corrected for spinal curvature)

Zeng was the tallest female ever recorded in medical history. She passed away in 1982.

3. Yao Defen, 7’8″, 233.7cm

Her gigantism is due to a tumor in her pituitary glad which I believe releases the HGH (Human Growth Hormone). There were disputes about who was taller – Yao or Sandy.

4. Sandy Allen, 7’7″, 231.1cm

Recognized as the tallest woman during her life according to Guinness World Records. She passed away in August 2008

Zainab Bibi is now settled in the UK after getting an asylum their on grounds that her height is making her life very hard in Pakistan
