Today, we welcome all you tall girls and tall women out there to come and have a chat right here. Let’s talk about the issue that concerns us all. Are high heels for you? This is the sort of question that will cause anxiety to many and cause many to think yes, why not what’s the big deal? What is clear is that opinion is divided, even amongst tall women themselves, in the people that surround you and in men as well.
But, where is opinion not divided? There are always two sides of the coin right? The world has always taught you how to dress or not dress. The world tells women they are too fat or they are too thin. The world tells women they are too short or too tall. So, who do you listen to? It’s your feet, you heels, your life… If wearing that pair of high heels makes you happy then that is what you should do!
Ok let’s do an experiment. Look at our favorite heels below. And just be honest about how you feel looking at them. Do you want them or not? If you let go of all your insecurities or social norms, then will you wear them or not?
If your answer is yes then you should be wearing those heels right now! But wait, how can we say that before listening to all the doubts in your head? Shoot!
Will I look like a human lighthouse?
No. You will still look very much like a human, because YOU ARE! In fact you would look like a model. Embrace that as a gift. Many of us want to be you.
Am I not tall enough, already?
What is tall enough?? 6’2? So that means the girl who is 6’4 should spend her whole life feeling too tall? No! We all should feel absolutely perfect. And because we are all individuals, let’s not act like a mass.
Will guys still like me?
Those who wouldn’t and are intimidated by how tall you are, are not worth your time anyways. You need and will find a guy who finds you attractive with or maybe even because of your height.
But what about all the short people, I feel uncomfortable with them. They stare.
Oh dear. That is your issue. You should work on getting comfortable in your skin. That’s the only skin you have and the fact is not going to change. So you as well be proud of it, instead of hiding it. Read about Lindsay Kay Hayward and it may inspire you.
All that said, now we just want to state two facts. One, heels is not only about looking taller. It instantly instills confidence in you. If you are wearing the right size and comfortable in them, they will do something magical to your walk. So, heels are pretty much about confidence as well.
Second, a lot of garments will look way better if you wore heels. You spend your hard-earned money on buying your favorite dress but will not completely do justice to it by opting for flats for whom? Society? See these starts below, who are very well tall but wears heels and flats both with confidence. Who says you are not one of them?
