Height Conversion Centimeters to Feet and Inches

In my articles I sometimes refer to cm and meter, but other times I refer to feet and inches when talking about height or any other measurements. However I try always to include both feet + inches and cm or vice versa. If I forget to do that you might refer to the conversion chart chart below.

That is why I have put up here a height conversion chart, in case some of you have trouble with finding how tall is 172cm in feet and inches or if you want to know how tall you are in cm and vice versa. You can check out the below height chart and see what´s your height. So you are able to easily convert for example 170 cm to feet and inches or only inches.

This height chart covers  most people´s height.
It does not contain a conversion from meter to centimetre because it is extremely easy to do so: 1m is 100cm.

I am 5´1.5 or 156cm Tall (short).  156cm is 1m 56cm or 156 cm is 5 feet and 1.5 inches

Similar height to the following celebrities:

Kevin Hart (5 feet 2 inches which is 157 cm ) source

Angus Young ( 5´2) source

Hector Sandoval ( 157cm = 5´2 ) source
