1. START SMALL If you are a beginner, do not start off with 5-inch stilettos. Try something smaller, like a 2-inch with a thicker heel. This will help your feet and body get use to balancing on high heels.

2. PROPER FITTING HEELS If your heels are too small or too big it will hinder your ability to distribute your weight and walk properly. Always make sure you have the right size with no pinching and no slippage.

3. GOOD POSTURE Always stand up straight, keep your shoulders back, and keep your head up high.

4. SMALL STEPS Do not stomp and attempt to take big steps like your normally do with flat shoes. High heels naturally shortens your stride, so just follow the rhythm.

5. FROM HEEL TO TOE Put your heel down first and then your toes. Do not place your entire foot down at once or tip toe thinking that it will ease the discomfort. It will only inhibit your balance.

6. INSOLES For a little bit of extra help, add some insoles onto your heels. This will provide some extra support and padding for your soles which should make the process a little more comfortable.

7. PRACTICE Walking in heels like a pro does not happen overnight so practice when you can on different surfaces. Look in the mirror while you walk. Learn your strengths and weaknesses, and target those. Soon enough, heels will no longer be a hindrance.

 

As you can see, walking in heels has its ways. It’s not just a regular pair of shoes you can just step into. If you had always thought heels were uncomfortable, try them again with these things in mind. During the process, keep a pair of flats handy just in case they start to tire out your feet. Keep practicing, and eventually you will get the hang of it! Let us know if this guide has helped you! We would love to hear your feedback.

How To Measure Your Proper Bra Size

Last week, we talked about the concept of sister sizes to give you more possibilities in finding that perfect fitting bra. After some thought, we felt it was necessary to also provide a guide to figuring out what your proper bra size is to begin with. After all, a good foundation is necessary before adding on any more information. So here it is, a guide for how to measure your bra size from yours truly.

Other good rules of thumb to remember:

– Re-measure yourself every couple of months or as needed to ensure you have a properly fitting bra to provide support for your bust.

– Wear your bras on the loosest set of hooks if possible. This will prolong the longevity of the elastic band. As the bra ages and becomes more loose, you can wear it on a the tighter sets of hooks.

– Adjust the shoulder straps to the proper length so that the front of the bra band aligns with the back and your bust is lifted up.
We hope this helps in providing you with a better understanding of your bra size. There is no need to go to a professional to get yourself measured, because you can simply do it effectively at home. Give a try and let us know how this works out for you.

Guide: Sister Bra Sizes Chart

When buying bras, sometimes sizing is not as easy as just 1-2-3. Depending on the brand and the style, there can be parts of a bra that just doesn’t seem to be fitting right. Perhaps the band is too tight, or the cup is too big. Instead of writing these styles off, especially if you really like the look, try their “sister bra sizes”.

What are sister sizes? Sister sizes are that surround your bra size. By knowing what those sizes are, you can easily try on different bras if the one you picked is not turning out to be true to size. For most bras, cup size increases when the band size decreases and vice versa. For example, if you are a 34B, you can either try a 32C or a 36A on to see if one or the other fits better.
