What a fab evening! Everyone learn’t really important lessons about their posture and control and how to cope with the changes caused by shoes of different heel heights. You have to be really fit and strong to cope with the postural changes created by the ridiculously high ones. Some of these girls tonight have been trained professionally to wear heels and actually struggle to walk with control on UK pavements never mind cobblestones. If in doubt… go lower!
This is just to tell you the reasons why I have started this initiative, to combat the surge of the Great British Wobbly Bum! (It deserves capitals! Lets just call it the ‘GBWB’) So many girls suffer from GBWB syndrome, it gives them knee problems, back pain, numb feet and generally Wonky (with a capital!) legs and bodies.
Lets look at really wonky knees, or let’s not in some cases … knobbly, in turned, over extended knees are prevalent on our high streets causing over strain to the backs of the legs stretching the bits that were never meant to be stretched and forcing otherwise gorgeous girls to stand just like storks with their knees bent back. This in turn causes you to stand with your pelvis tilted forward and encourages your feet to go flat and then turn out…. not a good position to train your body is it and we haven’t even started on what it can do to the alignment of your back!
As soon as you tighten your butt, and transfer your weight slightly forward over your toes, you move your knees out of this really lazy locked position and turn them back straight, this lifts your pelvis and allows your arches to spring back. Easy said but really difficult in practice if you have spent years developing this posture.
