Instantly Slim Your Legs, Flatten Your Stomach, and Make Your Femininity Unstoppable

What is the one thing you can add to your outfit that instantly slims and elongates your legs, makes your stomach flatter, lifts your booty, and makes your femininity unstoppable?

High heels

Yep.
Don’t believe me?
Ask any drag queen. They will tell you, the ability to rock a pair of fabulous heels is uniquely feminine, even if that high heel is a size 17.
Still don’t believe me? Go grab a pair of high heels and get in front of a mirror. Notice how your posture changes once you’ve slipped them on. In a pair of high heels you back arches, your pelvis and chest are thrust forward, your butt sticks out a little more and your calf muscles tighten.
There actually is physics behind this! As heel height increases, the location of the center of gravity is elevated causing a decrease in our stability. We auto correct our posture to maintain stability, mainly increasing the sway of our back, and this in turn changes how we stand and carry ourselves. But just because we have gravity on our side, it doesn’t mean walking in heels is easy!Ever seen those women in heels clunking down the hall or the street? It looks as though they have bricks tied to their feet? They look uncomfortable and rather than taking note of how fabulous her figure looks and how sexy she is, all you can do is focus in the “clunk clunk” sound she makes when she walks.

Ever wonder if YOU were that person? I am not talking about how you feel 6 hours into a long night of dancing in high heels and several cocktails. We’ve all had occasions where the very thing that makes us feel so sexy, high heels, also makes us want to rip our feet off only to return them to our bodies after a long soak in a hot bath. I am talking about how you walk down the halls of your office or along a city block, warm summer air around your bare legs as it causes your skirt to sway gently.
Ever wondered how you can stride gracefully in high heels? Well we’re gonna tell you how!

1. Put the heels on and just stand. That’s right. Just stand. Get in front of a mirror and get your feet used to how your weight is distributed and how your posture has changed. Take a few minutes and check out your profile, small steps in front of the mirror, taking all of you gorgeous long legged self in!

2. Get off the carpet! it is hard to walk in stilettos if you aren’t on a firm stable surface. Carpet is usually padded, the heels sinks in and you can’t quite find your balance.

3. Take small steps at first. Concentrate on putting your heel down first and rolling onto the ball of your foot.

4. Swing your arms to keep balance

5. Practice practice practice

6. Cross feet one over the other slightly when walking, like you are walking on a tight rope (that will help with the clunking)

7. Sway your hips slighty

8. Have confidence. Keep your head high, shoulders back and own it. Own it.

Give it a go and let us know if it worked for you!

Okay. Okay. I hear you! I hate heels typically. I am so used to being in flip flops and sneakers. I really need to give them a try…now if you would just send me those stilettos I wore in my boudoir shoot…I loved those! :-)

Fabulous tips, ladies! :) Love this!

Any tips on how to choose heels that will be the most comfortable? My problem is, I seem to always end up with shoes that HURT even after only a short time of wearing them, and I’m not sure how to find good ones. ;)

I used to hate heels, but they really make me feel so much more confident and less frumpy! After I became well practiced and stopped clumping around that is!! And those stilletos’ totally rock – we have to find out where Joanna got them. They’ll be awesome for your pole dancing practice too! ;)

Jessssss – that’s a great question! My feedback is to not go tooooo high and platform types (not super pointy, narrow heels) are better because the weight is distributed and feels more natural. BUT, I’m going to let Joanna chime in here too, because she’s the pro in this category. She’s getting her hair done right now, but she’ll get in here soon. :)

OooOo! This was one of my favorite post to work on with Amber. I am passionate about high heels. I love ‘em. :)

Hi Kim! Where did I get those heels? Hmmm I believe I bought them online, likely through Zappos.com or maybe even snaz75.com, both have great shoes ranging in style from office to bedroom to pole dancing class. Oww owww!

Hiya Jess! Amber hit the nail on the head with her high heel advice. I will just expand on it a little. :)

1) When looking for comfortable heels go with a platform.

2) A round toe or open toe is going to be more comfortable than a narrow pointy toe.

3) I would also suggest a heel that isn’t too skinny. I love heels that are a little thicker, to give more stability. For example Betsey Johnson has a show called “DISKKO.” That’s the kind of heel I like to wear.

4) And last but not least, the best secret weapon I can give you…Foot petals! http://www.footpetals.com They have a specific line of products designed for high heels, to give support, cushion, and keep your toes from sliding forward. ;)

Happy high heel shopping!
