Heels are the very symbol of femininity: they accentuate your feet and have a wonderfully slimming effect on your body. But for some of us, wearing heels is something of a challenge.
Here are My tips for wearing heels without falling over...
Walking in heels
Make use of your hips pretend you are strutting down the catwalk in order to find your balance. Put some sway into your hips, but be cautious not to cross the boundaries of decency...
Practice wearing your heels on tiny journeys, when you nip out to buy a paper or around the house.
Select the right height. The lowest heels are around 3cm high. If they are over 9cm, your foot will be arched and you risk losing your balance. A nice heel height is around 5-6cm.
Stability of the shoe counts for a lot. When you try them on, your feet shouldn’t wobble and your knees shouldn’t bend. Select a heel which is slightly square, and a platform that gives you nice support.
