Long Torso, Short Torso...

Which is more pleasing? I find short torso to be more attractive. There is something strange about a very long torso and short legs.

Men with long torsos and short legs should never put on weight. If they do, the develop the porportions of gigantic babies.

You made me laugh, R1. I know a guy so configured and he *does* look like an overgrown toddler!

torso to leg ratio is what makes a man look "humpy". I prefer longer torso-ed guys myself.

Long Torso, Short Legs - sounds like a Little People reality show.

Most men under six feet tall have longer torsos and therefore look somewhat squatty. Even if they manage to hit the six foot mark they always look shorter than the guy with longer legs and shorter torso. It's a simian thing and solely controlled through ones genetic makeup. Shorter torsos yield men with more acceptable proportions. I have the problem of being six feet tall and only wearing a 31" pant leg. Now that I've grown older, a 30' works just as well:(

I'm 6'4" and only have a 30" inseam, does that make me long torso'd?

Didn't Brad Davis have the Long Torso, Short Legs Syndrome? I think that's why he looked so simian (but oh-so delectable).

by Anonymousreply 804/12/2010

It's the Golden Ratio again. Long Torso/Short Torso are violations of the golden ratio and look... "off".

In Chinese culture, to be short waisted is bad luck.

I have a long torso so I prefer men with short torsos.

This dovetails nicely with my scientific theory that men with high belly buttons have wondrous rocket-shaped dicks.

Unfortunately, they're the ones who age with that high paunch.

Long torso men are real men not leggy scrany guys, long torso men mean upper body strenth yea it would be bad for a longer torso person to gain wheight but i would want a long torso over a short one any day. women its ok to have a long one but not too long and not too short either.

I unfortunately suffer from this. My legs are very strong from supporting my disproportionately long torso.

In the "heartthrobs" who are ugly thread, somebody came to Tom Cruise's defense and said he had a great body. Great for what? A misshapen dwarf? Cruise has a short torso and even shorter legs. Not to mention a wide load flabby ass that he has to continuously get lipoed. Did you ever get a look at his fat desk jockey backside in Rainman? I'm pretty sure Dustin Hoffman was in better shape in that movie.%0D %0D Speaking of torsos, Matthew McCauneghey. Great torso, great legs, tiny little tyrannasaurus rex arms. Notice how many publicity stills of his cut off his arms.

by Anonymousreply 1412/07/2010

Totally agree about Matt Mc's arms. Christina Ricci and Dolly Parton have the same problem.

Long torso if it is muscular and buff.

by Anonymousreply 1901/05/2013

Such a turn off is the long torso with short legs. Low crotch area. It's like two different types melded into one. I know someone like this who was cursed with his Italian grandfather's legs with a tall WASP torso. Unfortunately his son inherited this trait. It's a really hard trait to breed out of the bloodline.

I have a long torso and thick thighs and round phat ass. I am an even 6 foot. My legs are a bit proportionally short but I have broad shoulders, a small waist and narrow hips.

No one seems to complain.

I am not a fan of high asses on stilts, give me a shorter guy anyday.

Women with long torsos frequently have fupas. Just look at Angela Lansbury.

My partner has that Long Torso/Short Legs syndrome, and it's impossible for him to find a well-fitting pair of pants off the rack. He has everything tailored, even his jeans. I have no trouble finding well-fitting pants, but I hate my stilt-legged spider-legs body.

by Anonymousreply 2301/05/2013

6' and 31" inseam I too have very muscular legs and a bubble butt that has been declared the best fuck by more than one of my FWB's (including a so called straight bud who say no pussy compares to fucking me). it is true long torso you tend to carry weight in your stomach, I have to fight every day for my 6 pack..and it is 99% diet..

Women with long torsos look good if they have some meat on their bones. Slimmer women look better with short torsos.

Long torso and very short legs is a super hot and sexy combination!

31" inseam is not short legs. I have a slightly under 30" inseam and I am taller than you.

by Anonymousreply 3210/15/2013

Never realized this was even a thing. I'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam.

by Anonymousreply 3310/15/2013

Me neither, R33. Same size here. I cannot even conceive of R7's disparity of proportions. He must look like a below the knee amputee.

by Anonymousreply 3410/15/2013

Long torsos are good for one thing, swimming. Otherwise, they are not sexy people. You boneheads that say a long torso is great are just self-promoting.

by Anonymousreply 3510/15/2013

I would prefer the extra inch in my legs than in my torso.

Hard to find pants with legs short enough. My extra inch is in my neck and makes me look like a goon.

I'm 5'10" and I have a hard time finding pants off the rack that fit me. Even 29 inseams are too long. Sometimes I can find 28 inseams on line, but often I have to have things shortened or order them with my inseam. And I can never wear activewear (sweats, etc.) without elastic on the ends of the pantlegs.

by Anonymousreply 4212/06/2013

Ewww...long torsos are gross.

I much prefer short torsos with long arms. I don't go for short guys, a guy I am FWB is 5'5, but his torso is much shorter than his legs...I just get turned on by it...I can't explain it, .

Short torso men rule !!! WOOOOO!!

It's amazing to note the amount of things we learn at DL. I never realized that everyone with a long torso has short legs.

Anything's better than those Asian short-leg, long-torso muscle boys. They're so sad.

John Cena has a short torso. Makes him looked really jacked though

Short legs tend to be more muscular.

Long torsos are ugly on men and those short stumpy legs ruin it for me.

Love short torso men with long legs. Not a fan of short guys, but this short guy had these muscular long legs.

current FWB is 5'5, 2 inches shorter than me, his torso is as long as his femur, it was such a turn on for me

WOOOO!! Short torso men, LOVE EM' so hard to find, but worth it.

by Anonymousreply 4802/20/2015

not a big fan of long torsos.

much prefer a short torso, long legs, but legs need to have muscle.

I also like good calves on a man.

Claire Daines has a very long torso. I disagree that it's a bad thing on a woman, if she's thin and fit. Having strong abs on a long torso looks fantastic.

Zac Efron is wide-busted. How does that fit in with this?

by Anonymousreply 5202/20/2015

So how does this break down? Who has short torsos/long legs and long torsos/short legs? In my experience it seems black guys tend more to the former and white guys to the latter, but it's not a hard rule. Latino guys seem to go either way, but what about Asian guys? I don't have enough experience there. How are they generally proportioned?

by Anonymousreply 5302/20/2015

You're full of shit, r53. It's opposite.

by Anonymousreply 5402/20/2015

Seems legit to me, R54. I know an interracial couple (b/w) who can wear each other's pants. One is 5'8" and the other is 6'2". I'll let you guess which is which.

I have never heard of the torso/leg ratio

I am 5'6", 31 inseam.

Has anyone ever noticed that long torso/short legged men usually have long penises?

Short torso here. I'm 5'9", 138lbs. 29 waist and 38" inseam, very hard to find.

by Anonymousreply 6205/04/2015

No I can't say I have.

by Anonymousreply 6305/04/2015

I'm 5'10" and I have trouble finding pants short enough for me. 30" inseam is always too long, and it's not always easy finding 29" (or shorter.) And even though I'm far from tall, I have to buy tall sizes in shirts if I want them to stay tucked in.

by Anonymousreply 6405/04/2015

Seriously always thought I had short legs, but I guess not, I am 5 foot 10 with 33 inch inseam, guess that should do for a guy I hope
