I'm 5'6" tall and I love wearing high heels although to be honest you won't really catch me wearing them out everyday as I feel too tall! Do you think tall girls look good in high heels? Say about, 4-5 inch heels maybe. Or should they stick to flats?

I do think that it depends. I do think that some tall women look good with heels. While others don't. Every woman is different, which might be why heels work for some women and not for others.

Yeah but then that's the same with short women as well. I was thinking more along the lines of whether others feel it looks stupid when a women 'towers' over them because she's so tall because of the heels.

It is a woman's right to wear whatever shoes she wishes - it is one of those things when men just cannot take away from us, no matter what they say. I will admit that it is quite easy for me to say this, as I am a tiny 5ft 3, but let's be honest if we like the shoes, they are that gorgeous pillar box red which we have been looking for, then why should we allow that extra inch stop us from wearing them?

That's true but then that's not really what you think about when you have self confidence issues lol.

I'm 5.6" too, and wear heels a lot. it's only an inch or two above the average height for a female in the UK (which is 5.4. or 5.5. I forget which) so it's not that tall.

It feels good knowing I'm not the only one. Where I live, there's not many people that wear heels when out shopping or with their friends or whatever which makes me feel even weirder about wearing them myself. But I'm gonna try and get over that now and actually wear them more as I have loads of heels that I've only worn once or twice.

I think girls who stand at 5'10" until 6" doesn't need heels.even if they are skinny.it will look them taller and intimidate others.for girls 5'9" below,if you love heels,stick to 2 - 3 inches.in my country,I am regarded as one of the taller girls - I stand 5'5".still,I wear wedges as high as 4 inches.it makes me look leaner.

I do normally just stick to 2-3 inch heels but the 4-5 inch heels are so much nicer and sometimes I just can't resist buying them even if I know I'm not gonna wear them. It's so annoying how the 4-5 inch ones are much nicer :(

i am 5'9" and so is my b/f yet he loves me in heels he says he is not intimidated by a girl who's taller then him and loves seeing how heels make a girls legs look no matter how tall they are. so i would say yea tall girls look just as good in heels if not better ;) plus look at all those runway models there 6' and all in at least 4 inch heels

Your reply has made me a lot more confident, thanks so much! Everyone just looks at you though if you look supertall because of heels and I guess that makes me paranoid although they're probably not all looking anyway.

I am 5ft 5inches and I love heels and wear them often. Luckily my boyfriend is 6 ft 5 inches. However, even if I was not with him I still would wear them and did prior to meeting him.

Lol I wish I were as confident as you! I just feel as if I tower over people and I feel like a weirdo because I look taller than everybody else when wearing heels. Self confidence issues, lol.

It depends on the shape of the leg. If you have spindly legs, then it just accentuates how spindly they are. If you have curvy legs, then the heels draw attentions to that as well.

I'd never thought of it that way but that's a good point.

I like it when tall girls wear heels. It shows confidence. Plus, 5'6 really isn't all that tall. Personally I don't like the feeling of wearing heels - they're uncomfortable and I don't like to feel like I'm towering - because me myself - I'm 5'9 already! I stick to flats for mostly comfort reasons. But it's up to personal preference.

if you like to wear it, it's ok, don't care about others too much

my wife wears high heels to but only on occasion. she only stands 5'2 so wearing heels is good for her she looks tall. but wearing heels is not the problem for me... i just want to give my point of view as a man. some women loves wearing high heeled shoes but they dont know the right way to walk with this. it is sexy to see women who wears heels that is if they know how to walk. there are also women who are bow legged but still can strut their stuff. so i guess it okay for you to wear heels specially on occasions or you can buy a 3 inch heels if you have a date.
