British women shortest in Europe, wear highest heelsJuly 20th, 2012 - 9:43 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 20 (IANS) Women in Britain are the shortest in Europe but wear the highest heels - up to 3.3 inches - to compensate, says a new study.
The height of stilettos worn by British women is almost an inch higher than French women who go for 2.4-inch heels, the Daily Express reported citing a poll of 3,792 women by foot-care brand Compeed.
Close to the British are Spanish women, who prefer 3.2-inch heels, and Danes who wear three inches and Germans 2.7 inches, the report said.
Around 25 percent of British women confess to wearing even four to six-inch stilettos in a bid to appear more striking and successful.
Coleen Rooney, wife of footballer Wayne Rooney, was recently seen in a pair of seven-inch heels.
