Personally, yes I feel more confident stomping around in ultra-loud high heel shoes. But the clic-clak of the heels also has me self-aware depending on the event. I don’t like when people ask me why I’m wearing heels- I usually do day to day- but I’m only 5’2’’ so really I don’t think my instant gain of 3’’ is hurting anyone.
You should wear what makes you happy, they’re shoes and you can take them off so if you really feel they’re not for you, it’s okay!
i personally believe that most, not all, girls feel more confident wearing heels because they feel sexy, therefore boosting confidence. but i’m 6’1 and have naturally avoided heels, but i’m starting to really gravitate towards them now:) but if you don’t like them just rock being shorter than the average crowd. show confidence in the fact that you don’t need high heels to feel taller or sexy!posted over 5 years ago
I am only 5’1 and I like flats too, I love wearing high heels but I have very muscular and athletic legs, when I have heels on, the muscles appear and its weird, lol.posted over 5 years ago
i know heels always make me feel much more confident. i have a bad habit of slouching and heels instantly make my posture straighten right up. i’m 5’’6 and i always wear heels when going out at night, and during the day i usually wear flats or boots.
for comfort, i would recommend lower heeled pumps (like 1-3 inches). if you get them half a size too big you can wear them with socks and slide in some arch support inserts and that will make them much, much more comfortable.posted over 5 years ago
The reason heels make people feel more confident is because they think they look better in them. Especially for girls who think they are too short, the added height makes them feel more confident. However, if you don’t like heels and they make your feet hurt, dont’ wear them. I personally don’t wear heels much since they hurt my feet if i walk around in them for more than 20 mins at a timeposted over 5 years ago
i just think heels look better with my clothes. I dont own any flats. theyre very unflattering on me.posted over 5 years ago
Heels have never made me feel confident…i’m always afraid i’ll fall on my face on high heels.
And I would like to point out it’s not only the height they give, heels give a nice posture and a nice strut when your walking down the street:)
I think, if you want to look taller, heel always helps! I mean, for comfort flats are great, but now and then, you want to wear heels..Good thing is platforms/wedges and platform heels are much more comfortable than stilettos and you can look taller without killing your feet!
For me, heels do make me feel more confident, but only to some extent. I personally wouldn’t wear heels during the day (not my style) and if I wore heels that were really high and uncomfortable, I wouldn’t feel confident if I thought I was going to trip over at any second! :P
I’m not that great with wearing high heels for a long period of time but i’m slowly getting better at it! I agree that you can try low wedges or heels with a platform, which are more comfortable, you can even find chic heels which are only 1-2 inches high. But you should wear what is comfortable for you, don’t worry if heels aren’t your thing!
