I'm going to start Pilates because I have really bad posture. Will that help me grow more?

In brief: May appear taller

If growth plates fused, no.
, stretching, exercising, supplements nor dietary modifications will cause you to grow taller. Your tanner staging (puberty), bone age, general health, hormones, parent height are factors that determine your adult height. Pilates improves your posture, and i've seen improved posture increase height by 1-3". Stand tall!
