    Default Tall women; do you wear high heels?

    I'm 5'9, and I usually wear flats or a small heel because anything higher and I feel like, 'How's the weather up there!' I feel too tall. I love heels though and recently bought a pair of silver platform shoes that I am just in love with! I feel great in heels but I'm self conscious that I look too tall. I have a brother who is 6'6 and he hates being in public because he constantly gets stared at. His hang up has kind of brushed off on me, and I feel like looking too tall is a bad thing. But tall celebrities like Cameron Diaz seem to wear high platforms, so maybe it's not such a big deal.

    My question is for the tall women, do you steer clear of heels, or no?

    I'm 5'8 & don't wear much over 2 inches. My feet hurt to much working to much lately. Most of the time I'm with my daughter, she's 5' & kinda feel like a giant unless she has on her shoes that add 3 inches to her. Last night I wanted to wear a taller shoe going to a concert but knew my feet would kill me after working 19 days in a row. I settled for a lower shoe.

    I love heels, I can appreciate a beautiful shoe (or boot) but the truth is I can only walk well in them if I've been wearing them for a while and on a daily basis but that doesn't happen often because I hate to have my feet hurt.

    So, no I don't tend to wear them.

    I'm a little over 5'7 and already tower over most girls here,so I dont wear heels much even though I'd love to.

    5'11" and yes I do. If someone feels intimidated, that's their problem. I grew to my adult height at 13 so I've had a long time to deal with it and I got over the self-conscious phase a long time ago. I just enjoy being me and I'll wear what ever shoes catch my fancy. I might as well because I'm taller than average in my bare feet anyway!

    5'7" here and i most definitely parade around in 4" stilettos.

    i say go for it! rock those heels and be confident. keep your head up and be hot and people won't be stupid and make jokes because they'll be in awe of your confidence.

    I envy all you tall girls.

    If I were tall I'd still wear heels!

    A 5'11"er here and yes I wear heels almost every day, at least 2". Like Twitchy, I've had a long time to deal with it, and in fact like the fact I'm taller than most girls.

    I quite often get asked to pass things down to short-arses in the supermarket which tickles me!

    The only time it annoys me is when I try on short dresses which'd be fine on an average girl but look like a tunic top on me!

    Oh, and I thought 5'7" was kinda the average height???

    If 5'7 is the average height, then I'm really a dwarf...

    Hey, I'm the average American female height (apparently, I've grown half an inch recently even though I'm 26...)
