Look HOT In Your Heels

The High Heel’s Work Out

Here at Heels.com we love high heels, but sometimes our heels don’t love us back. So, we have designed a simple workout routine with easy-to-do moves that can strengthen your legs, improve your posture & make you look HOT in your heelsHigh heels can cause pain and injuries in the knees, lower back and neck so its very important for high-heel wearers to strengthen and stretch these areas to prevent injury.

Bound Angle Stretch: From a seated position, bring the bottoms of the feet together with the knees bent out to the sides, and interlace the fingers around the toes. Inhale and press the hips down and reach the crown of the head up towards the ceiling. Drop the shoulders down and back and press the chest towards the front. Press the knees down towards the floor to open the hips. Some benefits are the bound angle opens the hips and chest, lengthens the spine and stimulates the reproductive, nervous and respiratory systems.

STRETCH IT OUT

Lower back “Superman”: Lie on your stomach with your hands and legs stretched out. Raise your left leg and your right hand at the same time, hold for three seconds, then alternate legs and hands.

WORK IT OUT

Basic squats: Stand with your feet apart, slightly wider than your shoulders. Bend your knees until you’re almost sitting, then stand up. (Important: Do not let your knees pass your toes.) On the way down, push the buttocks as far back as you can and lean forward with your upper body. Do three sets of 20 repetitions.

SQUAT IT OUT!

Lower back Stretch: Lie on your back. Bend your right knee and use your left hand to pull it over the left leg, keeping the upper body flat. This will “spiral” your spine and stretch tense lower back muscles.

STRETCH IT OUT!

You Can Also Do:

Calf stretch: Raise your toes against the wall and keep your heel on the floor. Lean forward and stretch, holding for 12-15 seconds.

BEST BOOTS FOR YOUR BODY TYPE

Have you ever wondered how to pull off a certain type of boot but didn’t know how to wear it or what to pair it with? We’ll here at Heels.com we believe its important to find the right type of boot for your body type. The trick to getting it: finding the one boot that works best for your body type

STEP 1. Find your body type

The two most important characteristics to consider before you decide which boot is best are your height and your body shape. These features are very important to identify before you try to choose a certain type of boot for your body.

HOURGLASS -When your body measurements are proportional around the hips and bust, while having a small or narrow waist line.

INVERTED TRIANGLE -Your body measures wider at the upper part from bust, to shoulders, while having a flat waist line and narrower hips, or you gain weight faster around the bust area.

PEAR or TRIANGLE -Your body measures bigger around the hips, thighs and rear area, and you gain weight at these places easily, while having a smaller waist, bust and shoulders.

RECTANGLE -If you find your hips, waist, bust and shoulders are equal in measures, and you gain weight around the stomach and your whole body equally, with no defined curve lines then you are defined as rectangular.

APPLE -Your body gains weight around the midsection (that is the stomach, waistline and rear), and face, and you have bigger measurements from the waist and up to your shoulders, with smaller hips and slimmer legs.

STEP 2. How to Pick the right boots

ANKLE LENGTH

This type of Boot is one of my absolute favorites and is extremely versatile. This boot can be worn to different types of occasions and are extremely practical and comfortable. They also can be worn by different body types whether your, curvy and tall or petite and short. The only tip is if you are short you must wear pants in the same hue as the boot giving the illusion of longer legs. If you don’t follow this tip the boots can end up making you look shorter.

CALF LENGTH

These boots accentuate the thin body type. They will add a great amount of volume to your ankles and calves balancing out your thin frame. It adds sexy curves and gives the illusion of a more curvaceous figure and gives you a more feminine look.

KNEE LENGTH

These boots are perfect for woman with curvy figures. Especially if you have a more pear shaped body you will appreciate the effect of the knee high boots. For a more classic sophisticated look you would want to choose a boot with a higher heel. For a more casual feel you may choose a flat boot paired with skinny denim or leggings.

OVER-THE-KNEE

These specific type of boot were made for tall and slender woman who would like to add a bit more edge to their look. Shorter woman should avoid this type of boot because it will appear shorter than usual and if you are curvy this boot will emphasize your body type. This boot looks great with a mini dress or chunky knit and skinny jeans.
