I guess we alway knew it. It is always good when science proves what we have just simply believed. University of Portsmouth report state heels change the way the entire body moves. From shoulders to feet move in a way the show off femininity. A woman wearing heals is seen as more attractive even before her face is notice.
To avoid the rating of attractiveness being influenced by anything other than high heels, the researchers used a process known as point-light display: lit markers are placed on key parts of the body and the raters or judges see only the patterns of these lights as the woman walks.
Men and women viewed 30-second video clips of the point-light displays of the walkers in high heels and flat shoes moving towards them. They then made judgements for femininity and attractiveness. All the women were rated as more attractive when wearing heels, and women judges rated them as more attractive than did the men.
In a second experiment, people were asked to judge whether the point-light display of women walking towards them was a man or woman. When the women were wearing flat shoes they were nearly twice as likely to be viewed as a man.
The researchers also analysed how women walked when wearing heels. They found that an average woman walked more quickly, changing from 106 to 110 steps a minutes, but with shorter strides: from 1.24 to 1.20 metres. “Judges rated the displays of the walkers in high heels as significantly more attractive than the same walkers in flat shoes,” say the researchers. “Women in high heels walked in a fashion more characteristic of female gait. The results are consistent with the idea that wearing high heels makes women look more attractive.”
This is a lot think about when buying stylish shoes. Personally this blogger loves wearing shoes of all types but typically I wear shoes with heel from 7cm to 11 inches in height. Watch the videos below and decide for your self. It could be fun.

I was poking around today just trying to find a new pair of shoe fr myself when I found this at sexyshoesexpert.com. Resource I mean real source that have High Heel Shoes for ladies with feet as small as size 3. The selection is not huge but the shoes are very stylish. So here is the post I found. Please feel free to check out the shoe sites listed.
The Sexy Shoes Expert inbox has been buzzing with emails lately. Thank you everyone for the wonderful feedback and comments. Here is a question from Sandy in St. Paul, she writes “I enjoy your website and come back a couple times a week to read your newest articles. Since you are the expert I have a question for you. I have very small feet, size 3, and I have a hard time finding high heels in my size. Any suggestions?”
First of all, thank you Sandy for your great question and allowing me to make it public.
A lot of small stature ladies find themselves in this kind of dilemma.
You finally find the perfect pair of high heels and the shoe company doesn’t produce the pair of shoes in your size.
Shoes for small feet
There are several things you can do if the shoes have closed toes and are only one to two sizes too large. One quick remedy is to stuff tissue paper in the front of the shoe to fill out the extra space. You could also wear a pair of no-show socks or Flats to Go, this will help fill in the extra space of the whole shoe. There is really not much you can do when it comes to sandals, other open toed shoes and shoes that are two or more sizes larger than your feet. If you wear shoes and boots that are way too big, you will end up wobbling around like a drunken sailor due to a lack of support. Now that is neither sexy nor fashionable.
Here are some websites I found that have a good selection of dainty sized women’s shoes at a reasonable price:
Cinderella of Boston– High heeled shoes, sandals and boots in sizes 2 – 5 ½ (1 – 3 ½ UK, 31 ½ – 35 Euro).
Dainty Feet.com – company is based in England and exclusively stocks women’s shoes sizes 3 – 5 (1 – 3 UK, 32.5 – 34 Euro).
Pretty Small Shoes – Petite shoes in small shoe sizes 2 – 5 (13 – 3 UK, 32 – 35 Euro), also based in England.
Petite sexy shoes
If you are willing to spend the extra money, here is a great custom made shoes website:
Shoes of Prey – hand made beautiful small shoes for women with small feet, designed by you. Starting at size 2 ½ (12 ½ UK child, 31 Euro, 20 Japan).
Keep in mind, if you are a size 2 you can’t possibly wear a high heel, anything over 3 ½”. There just isn’t enough foot to walk on. Most of us are not professional ballerinas, and walking on the tip of your toes is very difficult and painful.

Of all of Madonna’s many memorable looks, one of the most iconic is her cone bra. Originally designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, the bras became the costume staple from the singer’s 1990s Blonde Ambition tour, and they have staying power to this day: Two of them sold at a Christie’s auction in London for nearly $80,000. Gaultier’s fringed candy-striped couture corset (shown, inset) was originally expected to fetch between $16,000 and $24,000, but raked in more than double that, with an anonymous bidder shelling over $52,000 for the piece, The Guardian reports. The same private bidder paid more than $26,000 for the two-piece black Lycra piece, shown. Private “Vogue”-off, anyone?
