How to increase height of a 21 year girl?

Make a taller image

Heterosexual
Since a 21 year-old woman cannot increase her body's height anymore (her growth plates have fused), she must work on presenting a taller image. Expressing confidence and good leadership skills, standing with a straight posture, walking gracefully, wearing heels, wearing clothing with vertical stripes, and using other wardrobe techniques can all make a woman seem taller.

What is a good height increasing method for 18 boys?

Depends on bone age

Open-uri20140319-5257-1mk92sn
The additional height anyone can expect depends on areas in the long bones (arms,legs)called growth plates. This is where growth occurs and an active open growth plate means more growth.An Xray of the hands & wrists can be evaluated for bone maturity since there are many growth centers to see.Proper diet and exercise help you reach your potential while lack of it can stunt you.Most 18 yo are done

i am 21 year old girl. can i increase my height?

Unlikely

Open-uri20121124-31428-uihdyh
The major driver for height originates in the long bones of the body,primarily the legs. When the growth centers of the legs have quit making new bone, as would be expected by 16-17y in a female, you're as tall as you will ever be. An x-ray if the hand can be used to demonstrate you're bone maturity & if the growth centers show open growth centers you may grow taller.If not you,re done.

Done growing

If you're 21 years-old , then growth in height is finished. Wearing platform type shoes or shoes with heels would make you seem taller. There is nothing to be done medically.

It is possible

Baby
This can be normal but how tall she will grow is genetically determined and unless there is intervention with an endocrinologist with hormone therapy, you must let nature take its course.

I am 15 year old and my height is just 65 inches how to increase height?

Balanced nutrition

Open-uri20130404-25839-vgf0wq
At fifteen your growth centers have some potential for growth & simple measures help the best.Keep active & a healthy diet but don't expect to grow taller than your genetic potential.If you want to know how much longer you have to grow,an X-ray of your wrist & hand can be analysed for bone maturity & your doc can give you an estimate.
