Holly Burt was teased and bullied when she was in middle school in Florida for being taller than everyone else. Her classmates called her “daddy long legs” and “giraffe.” But now at 20, after moving to New York, she is set to take advantage of her physical assets to launch a modeling career and enter the record books as the woman with the longest legs in the U.S. and possibly also in the world.
Although, Burt was teased by classmates at school and called “daddy long legs,” the design student from Florida says that since she left school and moved to New York two years ago, she has found that more people appreciate her exceptionally long limbs.
Holly says that men, in particular, love her figure and that she has met a lot of men “who have a fetish for long legs.”
She has found that now that she is older her long legs have stopped being an embarrassment but an asset.
“Back in middle school I was called daddy long legs, tree or giraffe – but the dating scene has gotten better since I moved to New York,” Holly Burt told Barcroft TV. “I definitely have seen guys come up to me who have a fetish for long legs. When people see me in heels their jaws hit the floor.”
“I was called daddy long legs, tree or giraffe. Kind of, like, the ordinary tall things.”
