Did she look like this?



Not what you were expecting, was it??!!

The tallest and biggest woman in the world lives in Holland.

She is 7'4" and weighs 320

What a relief!! Now we ALL know we aren't overweight, .........just too short!

This is an urban legend, of sorts. While she's tall, she's nearly a foot shorter than claimed. And she's not from Holland.

From urban legends web site:

Comments: The first in this series of emailed images is of unknown origin and shows signs of being digitally edited to make the blonde on the left look unnaturally tall. The rest of the images appear to be unaltered, however, and were evidently culled from HeatherHaven.com, the Web site of a real, live woman who calls herself Heather and claims to stand 6 feet 5-1/2 inches tall in her bare feet and over 7 feet tall in heels. She is not from Holland; nor, if those statistics are correct, is she really the tallest woman in the world. That distinction belongs to 7-foot 7-1/4-inch Sandy Allen of Indiana, according to The Guinness Book of World Records.

Still, Heather is no pipsqueak, even if the photos of her are slightly misleading (she consistently poses in high heels next to people of shorter-than-average height, thereby enhancing her stature not that there's anything wrong with that). Albeit with considerably more glamor and self-determination, she is essentially marketing herself as a modern-day sideshow attraction la Anna Swan of P.T. Barnum fame in the mid-1800s.
