Wearing High Heels Is Actually Good For You?
Labels: Beauty News
According to Dr. Maria Angela Cerruto, a urologist at the University of Verona, Italy, wearing heels can tone a woman's abdomen and pelvic floor and may improve a woman's sex life.
Based on her study of 66 women under the age of 50, Cerruto found that women who "stood with their feet at a 15-degree angle to the ground (the equivalent of a 3-inch heel) the electrical activity in their pelvic muscles was less — indicating the muscles were more relaxed with higher heels, thus improving their strength and ability to contract."
"We now hope to prove that wearing heels during daily activity may reduce the need for pelvic exercises," says Dr. Cerruto.
So this is a new shed of light on those who loves to wear heels like myself? hmm, I'd still wear heels regardless, but hearing this news just give it a better reason to do so. Wonder if it would be the same effect for heels that are higher than 3 inches.
