I've looked on the NCT website which says at my height 5'8, I should go for the 65cm ball, but I have longer legs for my height (husband calls me t-rex as I gave my seat far away from steering wheel but them my short arms won't reach) . Nct site says knees should be below hips so wondered if I should go for the 75 cm one?
Can anyone recommend?

I wonder if your local gym might have some gym balls that you could go and sit on to try? Not quite the same obviously, but might give you an idea as I'm pretty sure the sizing is the same.

My ball is too big if its fully inflated so i don't blow it up fully. could you get the bigger one then just inflate as much as you need?

Hhmn gym, I think I've heard of those?
I think I will go bigger and deflate if I need to, thanks both x

Im 6ft and have the 75cm on which is just right for me. My friend is 5'9 and she has a 65cm one which is just right for her.

I'm 5'9 and the 65cm was fine for me

I'm 5'7" but with disproportionately long legs like you and have a 75cm one which is perfect.

Go for the biggest because you can deflate it but you can't make a small one bigger!
