Do heels make you feel not only taller, but skinnier, better about yourself, raise your confidence level??

Every time I slip on heels or even wedges, I feel 100% more awesome than I already am! Am I the only one? If not, I want to know how heels make you feel!! How often do you get to wear them?

  • Absolutely! I don't wear stilettoes or anything, mostly wedges. I have a large collection of tennis shoes, and live in those mostly. But if we are going out to lunch or dinner, or if I am just hanging out with friends and my toddler girl is at home with her father, then it's heels all the way. It is my way of signifying that I am having "me time" and don't have to worry about being mobile for anyone else.

  • Yes but they hurt so dang bad every since I had my last baby, my dad gets so irritated that women are willing to risk their back (heels can really damage you and cause injury) just to look good. He thinks every woman who wears heels is stupid. LOL (he is a really cool guy though, just a quirk)

  • I don't wear them unless it's a wedding or funeral,lol... I believe in being comfortable and looking good at the same time. They don't make me feel any different than I do without them, well except that my feet hurt after a long day in them...

  • Me and heels are like oil and water.....we simply do not mix well. LOL I can't walk in heels to save myself. LOL I don't like to wear anything on my feet, but if i must, i prefer tennis shoes or flip flops/sandals.

    And that is how I feel about them. :D

  • Nope, not here, they're an accident waiting to happen, so I don't wear them - they're not comfortable and I feel even more "oddball" when I wear them!

  • Not at all. Heels make me feel physically challenged. I'm going to break an ankle, at least. I need nice flat, safe shoes.

  • Not at all. I'm 5'7" so I am tall enough. I only wear them for weddings, funerals. or interviews

  • I hate heels. I have messed up tendons in both feet, so they aren't practical for me to wear.

  • Nope. I don't even own a pair of heels or wedges.

    I have 2 pairs of shoes: My "new" sneakers that I wear to town... and my "old" sneakers that I wear around the yard.

    That's it.
