I normally hate wearing heels but there are few times a month I feel like I have to wear them, mostly on dressy dates and business meetings with people I’m seeing for the first time. I hate wearing heels because I have wide BoBo the Clown feet and can never find heels that feel comfortable after an hour.
However, I noticed that on the days I decide to sacrifice comfort for heels that there’s something different about the way I’m perceived and maybe even the way I carry myself. I know that heels make my legs seem longer and that I can’t really slouch in heels when I stand so I stand up straighter, which I think makes me appear more self-confident.
I think these slight physical differences are noticed by other people. It could be my imagination but I receive more compliments about my outward appearance when I’m wearing heels than when I wear my black ballet flats.
Do you feel more attractive in heels versus flats? Which do you prefer when you go out?
