  • This couple literally stand out from the crowd because of their well-above-average heights.
  • Beau Brown is 2.16 metres tall, while his partner Sara measures in at 1.85 metres.
  • Beau says his height often attracts attention from the public.  
  • Meanwhile, Sara says she wants to help other tall women feel secure in their bodies. 

This towering couple literally stand out from the crowd due to their well-above-average heights. 

Beau Brown, 30, who measures 7ft 1inch (2.16 metres), and his partner, Sara, 27, who is 6ft 1inch (1.85 metres), stand tall and tower over their peers but insist that they wouldn't change their heights for the world.

Despite loving their height, the pair are faced with daily challenges such as travelling and buying clothes. 

At over 7ft, Beau says he looked for a tall partner because he didn't want to get on his knees to kiss someone.

"I dropped Sara a message after seeing her on social media," he explained. "I saw a beautiful girl who seemed to be tall, and I'd always looked for a tall partner.

"And Sara was on the lookout for the same thing because she wanted to be with a tall person too."

Sara dated shorter guys in the past, but it never worked out for her.

Beau says his height often attracts attention from the public.  

"I deal with people taking pictures of me, talking to me, and wanting to know about my life every day because of my height. A simple thing like shopping for food starts up multiple conversations."

While he used to get annoyed, he says he started "seeing it as a tool to meet more people."  "I also realised that people just aren't used to seeing someone my height, and it can make their day, which makes me happy."

He admits travelling can be tricky, though. "Especially for me, as getting on planes and trains is near impossible. I don't fit in most cars, however, luckily, I drive the new Bronco, and it's the first car I have been able to fit in comfortably." 

When the couple searched for a home, they had to be specific about the ceiling heights to ensure they would fit. 

They also had to buy a large bed so they could both sleep comfortably.

Beau, a content creator, said: "It's also a struggle to find clothes that fit me. I can't find trousers or shoes to fit anywhere, so I need to get them custom-made.

With his father standing tall at 6ft 9inch (2.1 metres) and his mom at 6ft 1inch (1.85 metres), Beau says he always knew he would reach great heights, too. 

"I like to try and help people embrace their different bodies using what I have learnt throughout my whole life," he added.

Sara's father is 6ft 5inch (1.98 metres), and her mother is 5ft 7inch (1.73 metres).

She also has a hard time finding clothes that fit, and she says that she can lose her balance in shoes that don't support her height. 

"I love wearing high heels because they make me feel confident," she added. "I am happy to walk around at 6ft 7inch when I have my heels on. 

"Another advantage of my height is that my friends can always spot me when I'm out."

About her relationship with Beau, Sara said: "Being with Beau is amazing because I now get less attention when I go out because he gets it all. 

"Our hugs are my favourite part of our relationship because I fit so perfectly on him. I've always wanted to marry a tall man, especially because I'd love tall kids."

The 27-year-old says she wants to help other tall women to be secure about their height. "I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share my experience of being tall because women are not always proud of it when they are younger. 

"I just want to tell any young boys or girls that feel awkward or insecure about the way they look, whether they're short or tall, to love themselves because there is not another you. You are beautiful the way you are."
