“If all else fails, make the heels higher.”
We’ve all heard it before right? The benefits of wearing high heels. They add height, make legs longer and butt look great. I’m not really sure about that last part though but they miss ‘out one thing – they enhance your calves too. It’s just funny how some men are into calf muscles. Obviously, it was through comments in my social media account that I found out about this. But I digress.
I know that those who don’t’ have a high threshold for pain are already taking about their disadvantages – sore ankles, pinched toes, swollen feet and the list goes on. But if there’s another thing to motivate you in slipping into those killer pairs, it’s this. According to a study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, you’re hotter when you wear high heels. It was published in Time – high heels increase a woman’s attractiveness! And it was confirmed through a social behavior study in France as mentioned in the same article.
But if you’re still not satisfied with that, then I’m gonna add another motivation here. This article from Business Insider says that being tall could make you richer and more successful which is also based on a scientific study. Well, that article says nothing about “genetically taller” so I guess the “fake it ‘til you make it” strategy can work here. Haha. Fake being tall in high heels, why not? =))
And for those of you who got inspired to wear heels from this silly post (lol!), then I’ve got this trick for you to make that teetering in sticks a bit bearable. Meanwhile, enjoy the gallery below showcasing some of my highest pairs. 🙂
