A gorgeous pair of heels instantly makes you feel slimmer, sexier, and more feminine. The trick, of course, is walking in them!
Walking in heels is definitely a skill – and it’s something many crossdressers and transgender women tell me they struggle with.
Ready to perfect your sexy strut? The first step is to learn these 7 dos and don’ts when it comes to walking in high heels.
1. DO Walk Heel-To-Toe
When learning to walk in heels, a common beginner mistake is to place the entire foot down at once. Unfortunately, this can make it look like you are “clomping” rather than walking.
The proper technique is to walk in a heel-to-toe pattern, just like you do on flat feet. Place your heel down first, followed by your toe. This will make your walk look as smooth and natural as possible.
2. DO Take Smaller Steps
Wearing heels naturally shortens your stride. The higher the heel, the shorter your steps should be.
Don’t try to fight this! Instead, take shorter, more frequent steps as you walk.
3. DON’T Lean Forward Or Back
Heels change your balance, so you need to be careful not to lean forward or back when you walk. Your weight should stay centered and lifted.
Imagine you are a puppet with a string attached to the top of your head. Picture the string pulling you up as you walk, giving you a regal and ladylike air.
4. DO Place One Foot In Front Of The Other
Have you ever noticed that runway models look like they are walking on an invisible tightrope?
Placing one foot in front of the other as you walk makes your steps more feminine. It also gives your hips a sexy sway!
The trick is not to overdo it. You should also avoid the temptation to look down at your feet to be sure they are lining up.
Instead, focus on keep your legs together. If you feel your thighs brushing together, your feet will naturally cross over just a little bit.
5. DON’T Go Too High
Not surprisingly, 5” stilettos are a lot harder to walk in than 3” pumps.
Start low and work your way up. A good place to begin is with a heel that is 2-3” tall. This will allow your ankles to develop the strength needed to support you.
Once you’ve mastered that, you can move on to the skyscraper stilettos you’ve been coveting.
6. DO Relax Your Legs
Another common mistake is to tense your legs and lock your knees when you walk in heels. This can give you a stiff, robotic look.
Instead, keep your legs and hips relaxed. The knees should have a slight bend, which will help the hips sway.
7. DON’T Forget To Practice
The time to test your heel walking skills isn’t when you’re out and about. Be sure to spend a lot of time wearing them around the house before you make your big debut.
As you practice, be sure to cover all of the real-world skills you’ll need to master, including:
- Turning around
- Sitting down
- Getting into and out of a car
- Walking up and down stairs
