Wednesday evening at our Meetup I complemented Cherie (yesterday's post) about the beautiful heel she had on and she did likewise. We ended up discussing how much we both love high heels. So with a little research, I found this article on eBay. It seemed to hit all the high points (pun intended). Thanks Cherie for the photo.
1. High Heels Add Height
It may seem obvious that a pair of heels will add height on to the wearer, but it is the number one reason why women around the world wear high heels. Women may want to add height in a number of different situations. They may want to match their height to a taller date. Petite women especially use high heels to overcome their natural stature. If a petite woman want to feel taller and more confident, all she has to do is throw on a pair of heels and she'll be instantly more statuesque. Since heels vary in height even a woman who is already tall can benefit from heels, even if they are a bit shorter.
2. High Heels Draw Attention
A woman wearing heels definitely draws attention. Men love a woman in heels, and a great pair of heels can also draw compliments from other women. Stylish heels like high stilettos tend to draw the most attention, so stilettos may be the perfect choice if a woman is looking to turn heads. Heels with stunning accents will also draw more attention than plain heels, and exotic heels are an excellent way for a woman to add a focal point to an outfit.
3. High Heels Enhance Confidence
Wearing high heels can make a woman feel more confident. This is due to a number of reasons. For one, high heels enhance almost any outfit. Additionally, high heels can make a woman look more assertive, which in turn makes her feel more confident. As mentioned above, heels draw favorable attention to a woman, her outfit, and personal style. This makes her feel even better about how she looks.
4. High Heels Accentuate Legs
One of the benefits of high heels is that they make a woman's legs look amazing. Wearing high heels changes one's posture and can make a woman's legs look longer and leaner. Not only do wearing high heels give the look of long and sexy legs, but they can also tone a woman's leg muscles. Additionally, they improve the entire look of a woman's body by improving how she carries herself when she stands and walks.
5. High Heels Make One Look Thinner
A notable reason why women like high heels is that they make the wearer appear thinner. This is true with almost any type of outfit, including skinny pants. High heels make one look thinner in part because they force a woman to stand taller. In addition to making one appear thinner, they also tone one's leg muscles.
There are good reasons to wear high heels. They can add height and make a woman feel more confident. They always garner favorable attention and they give the appearance of long, lean legs. There are many different types of heels from which to choose. There are pumps, stilettos, wedges, and kitten heels. It is important to choose the right type of heel. This means taking into account what the shoes will be used for, the style and color, and the material they're made from. High heels can be a wonderful way to tie an outfit together, which is why finding the right heels is important. A woman looking to buy her first pair of heels will find a huge selection of shoes to choose from on eBay.
