Get Empowered: Can High Heels Be Good For You?

Some women are known to have a slight obsession with shoes. I have to admit, I'm one of them. I love a cute pair of flats paired with skinny jeans or a hot pair of boots (yes, with the fur), but because I'm 4'10", high heels are my ultimate weakness.

But according to a new study reported on by, my weakness could actually lead to some strength – pelvic muscle strength, that is.

An Italian urologist conducted a study that examined 66 women under 50 and found that "those who held their foot at a 15 degree angle to the ground – the equivalent of a two inch heel – had as good posture as those who wore flat shoes, and crucially showed less electrical activity in their pelvic muscles.."

Basically, when you wear high heels, your pelvic muscles are in a position that could actually improve their strength. This is fabulous news, not only because strong pelvic muscles can amp up your sexual satisfaction, but also because the pelvic muscles support important organs such as the uterus and bladder.

So go ahead and bust out your hottest pair of heels – in the name of good health, of course.
