Guinness World Records Museum- The Longest Necked Woman

Today we see a figure of the longest necked woman in the world. Well, an example of a Padaung woman in Burma. The longest recorded neck length is 15.75 inches. They use copper coils to stretch the neck to the desired length.

Another view of the woman shows the neck in proportion to the body.

The neck itself. Unlike many world's records, this is more of a traditional practice, and not one to acquire fame.
