It all has to do with your family. I am 5' 9" at 23 and still one of the shortest people in my family. I mean my grandmother is still taller than I am. And will all ways be.

I come from a family of very large (tall) women. I am the shortest in my whole family.
I am 5'6", 27 years(almost ). I think I stopped growing around 16 or 17. My husband is the tiniest bit shorter than I am and he is 31. My 18 year old sister is something close to 6 feet, my mom is also something like 5'10". I have heard that some of my other long gone relatives (we are talking female here) were well over 6 feet. I like being on the short side.

Any chance the female members of your family inhabited the Amazon region of South America in years past?

LOL! The women on this side of my family are portuguese.

Your joints and bones wear down, and you start to slump over (maybe your head is too heavy for your neck bones?) and you just *appear* to shrink

Growth can and does occur right up until your 21st year, so don't fret just yet...however, long-bone growth slows dramatically after about 15. I am about 5'11¬Ĺ", mid thirties, and I have been that tall for about 20 years now.

I know that as I age, osteopenia, then osteoporosis, and the subsequent compression of my spine will "shrink" me, but it sure is hard to accept. My mother is definitely shorter than she used to be. :|

I think I stopped growing at around 14 or 15, I can't remember for sure though. I'm 25 now and ended up at about 5'8.5". I also can't wear heels much with my BF being only about 5'9" but I dress up so seldom it doesn't really matter.
