is my leg length considered too short or average for my height?

I am 5 feet and 1.0236 inches (height), my inseam measurement is 30inches. does it mean my legs are too short?
i am a female

Not in the slightest.
I'm 5'5" and my inside leg is about 31 inches so I wear 32" leg jeans.
30 inches is pretty normal (especially of your not very tall) hence why they sell that length jeans a lot in shops.

Depends whether you're male or female. Most attractive ratio (apparently) for males is 1:1 ratio of torso:leg so that would be you since you're legs are 2.5 feet and you are around 5. If you are female it is 1:1.4 torso:leg so you would be under by 1 foot. I think I did the maths right there. does that help?

That's all going off what is apparentely considered most attractive.

And that's going off length from heel to top of hip so I'd say you're ok :smile:

I'm 5"3 and my inside leg is 28". Then again, I have very stumpty legs.
i'm 5'7" and I wear 32" jeans but I literally have the shortest legs in the world - or at least that's how they look to me. If you want yours to look longer, wear shoes the same (or similar) colour as your jeans and wear a shorter bright coloured top with a vest top the same colour as your jeans underneath :smile:

I'd say you've got quite long legs for your height?
I'm 5'9" and wear 34" jeans :smile:
I'm 5'9" and my inseam is 30")
It's not short, its good, im 6,2 ft and my inseam is 36-37, i would love to have shorter legs. because its too hard to find jeans, and i dont think that its good to see long legs on man and short torso.
im 4'11 or 5'0 my legs are 30.5 or 31 inches is that long? i dont really know tbh
i’m also kinda confused because i’m a 5”2 female with 36 inch legs, measured professionally as well, are my legs too long? i’ve never read anything of this and i’m scared
I’m 5’8 and my inseam is 28 inches so your legs are probably more proportional to your height where as I’ve a really tall body
Im 5'8" and wear 32" Jean's.
My maths teacher told me once the length of your arms and legs combined is your height
