    Umm………you may have been asked this before. But i am suprisingly tall (6 feet 5 inches). I normally wear low heels like classic courts and ballet slippers.  I’ve seen some cute heels and they are 6 inch.  I’m  debating on getting them, my main worry is I might look like a giant.  Does anyone have advice on my concerns. Or is it advisable to just wear them at home?

      I’m 6’9″ and i love my 4 inch heels. It puts me over 7′ but i just love the look. I do, however, have to watch my head when walking about.

      I say get the heels and enjoy them. At some point you may want to try wearing them out. If not just enjoy having and wearing them at home

      If you enjoy them; wear them and stop being so self-conscious.

      I am 5′ 10″ and have worn heels up to 6″ high.  I’m sure that I stand out in a crowd too.  Wear what you like and do it with confidence.  You’ll be fine.

      Hi Amilia

      I am 6′ 4″, and love 3″ heels – I don’t usually go higher, but recently have been wearing trainers and flats more often.

      The great thing about fashion is that you can do whatever you like – It’s all about your personal look.

      Do you like the overall effect once you’ve finished dressing and makeup? Does it make you feel happy when you see your image?

      That’s the gold standard.

      As others have said, mind doorways!

      Love Laura

      The way I see it any woman close to 6′ tall is going to attract attention. What difference does a few inches make? If she’s confident in heels more power to her. Plenty of tall women do it every day. Lack of confidence is obvious regardless of height. It’ll bring the kind of attention nobody wants.

      Amilia,

      Choices, choices. I find the advantage of high heels are they slim the legs and move the hips forward. Downsize as you say is low bridges. I try to stick to very low heels (I’m 6’3″) for the same reason as you, though I do have one pair of 4″ for with my LBN (Little Black Number).

      And as Jenny said, there are various tricks to reduce height like colours and patterns. If you look on YouTube there are a series of clips by a French woman, Justine Leconte, with all kinds of tips on dressing for body type and shape. Worth a watch!

      Hello Amilia

      I think that tall with 6″ heels might be too tall. Maybe 4″ Dont want to be smashing your head on doorways.

      Hi Amilia

      Just a word of warning, if you are tall and do wear 6” heels indoors be verrrry careful going through doors. I learned the hard way, duck!

      One way to approach it: I’m 6’1″, but I used to work with a GG who was 5’11” and who wore 3″ or more heels every day. I asked her why, and she said “It makes me feel powerful.”

      I’m 6 foot and I don’t care if I look taller. When I wear heels I usually wear 3 inch block heels. I also have some Espadrille platform shoes that add a couple of inches and some wedges but they are so much fun to wear and look great with so many clothes. I have as much right to wear them as any other girl no matter my height…and if you look around you will see women that are tall all the time.

      Hi Jenny

      Thank you for the hints. I don’t slouch anyway. But the other hints are a great help ^_^

      So I am six feet (okay, 5′ 11″ and 7/8ths), I play around with heels, but I don’t wear them that much due to the extra height really messing with the image. Height makes you stand out, sure, but there are some tips (borrowed from several sites):

      • Full and wide skirts. Increasing the width makes the height less noticeable, flared skirts and dresses help
      • Break up the colors. A long strip of color from top to bottom is easy to make it look taller, breaking it up with a different colored top, a sharp contrasting belt, breaks visual continuity and makes it look more like two different shorter objects rather than one long one.
      • Don’t Slouch. Slouching makes you look shorter, but it also makes it obvious you are hiding your height. Kind of standing out by trying to hide.

      It is important to note the tallest woman in the world is recorded at 7’7″ and several famous movie actresses are over 6′.

      Amilia, I am 6’3″ myself and understand your problem. I keep my heels, and I have only one pair, no higher than 2″.  At my age I would probably topple on anything higher.  It may not be a problem in your neck of the woods, but in my house, the ceiling fans are a limiting factor on heel height.  😉
