I love high heels because they make me feel sexy and powerful. I love the way heels look on me and I love the way that other women look in heels. I love the way high heels change my walk, the way they make my legs look, that extra height boost they give me, and the physical appearance of the heels. A great pair of high heels can change everything.
This is the description one female writer noted when describing her high heel love. I could not agree more.
Just to make sure this was not a just personal preferences I did some research and found that there is, hold on, scientific evidence.
The article in THE LIST, discussed "The real reasons women wear heels". It begins like this and I am sure many of you can relate. "I am a 6'5" woman…when I wear heels. My confidence, my stature, my hip sway – everything is bigger, and some would say better with stilettos strapped to my feet. I can make heads turn, men smirk, and women gasp at the pure sight of me. I love and hate heels for all these reasons and more."
The article provides scientific evidence that many of these points are true:
- Heels make our walk more attractive
- They make us appear more feminine
- Heels are office dress code
- They're culturally-ingrained
- Heels get you more male attention
- Heels help you be more persuasive
- They symbolize power
- Heels even the playing field
What are your reasons? I am sure you have many in your closet.
