Snooki's True Height Revealed: Just How Short Is She?

Wonder Woman 16

snooki These days, Snooki's post-baby body is making headlines like crazy. There's no question -- she looks awesome and seems to be shaping up by employing some pretty down-to-earth tricks. But long before the new mom was being scrutinized for her pregnant or post-baby body, she was getting teased for her diminutive height. It's not exactly news that she's extraordinarily short -- yep, even shorter than Deena Nicole. Just how short? Well, for a while now, Snooki has said she's 4'9". But apparently, that's not exaaactly the case ...

During a recent episode of Jersey Shore, Snooki’s true height was revealed after she asked nurses to measure her height during a visit to the doctor with Jenni (who fractured her foot during a fight). As it turned out, she actually measured in at ...

4'8"! Yuuup! Some might say, "Awww, how cute!!!" (while others will jokingly remind you that if you're under 4'10", that "legally" makes you a "little person" -- sigh). But her true height is not a fact Snooks is particularly proud of. As she left the doctor's office, she pouted and "wah wah"-ed about having "shrunk." Hmm. Not so sure that's the case. Seems more like she was "off" in thinking she was 4'9". But, man, if I had a chance to chat with Snooki, I'd say, "Chin up, short sister!"

After all, I sure as heck know where she's coming from! I myself thought I was 4'11" -- and would actually tell people I was 4'11", not 5' -- but, like Snooki, I went to the doctor a couple of years back and was informed that I am actually 4'10.5". If that. Okay, well, so what?

I'll admit -- when you're as petite as we are, you have to get most of your clothes hemmed/tailored. (And sometimes, overly concerned "fabulous" stylist types will offer unsolicited advice about how you should make your hair bigger and heels higher to make up for your shortness! Pfft!) But whatever! It's a small (tee hee) price to pay in the scheme of things, and believe it or not, as much as I've been teased about my height (my whole life!), I've also heard plenty of envy from taller friends. The grass is always greener right? Everyone's got their own personal challenge, and all in all, being petite is beautiful. You gotta own it! After all, shortness is just one more characteristic that makes Snooki, me, and other under-5-foot women like us unique -- and whatever makes you different is always gorgeous.

What's your personal body image "challenge" comparable to this?

I'm 5'2"... and you'd better believe those 2" make a HUGE difference! lol My sister barely stands 5' and there are times when I am next to her that I feel like a giant. haha


Then the rest of the world towers over us both. haha

Haha i'm with you HistoryMama! I feel like everyone towers over me! That always means there's the misfortune of being at most people's elbow height though!

I'm 4'10, and while I spent most of my youth being embarrassed and teased about my height, I'm kind of over the social aspect of it now... but I have to say that being this size is just inconvenient!  The world is not made for us!

I kind of feel weird when I stand around you shorties. You make me feel like a giant.

I'm only 5'3" and all of my favorite shoes/boots have at least a small heel.  I am the tallest girl in my family but in the real world everyone towers over me.  I actually think it's kinda funny sometimes how I'm attracted to tall men but it doesn't make sense for me to discriminate against short people since I'm short myself.

I'm only 4'9. And my height never truly bothers me . I'm from a family of shorties but I'm the shortest . My husband is short for a guy at around 5'7 ish and he is the shortest in his family .

I'm 4'10'', so I get her being upset about being an inch shorter than she thought she was, and I share her love of high heels :)
