That just looks horrible! Almost a 90 twist. Some women are just slaves to perceived fashion. Love independent minded women who do their own thang. On the other hand maybe this one is too independent minded. Although Lostinbread would approve due to lack of high heels.

Is she wearing incontinence pants under that?

Good point, but my incontinence comment still stands.

Public Announcement: The heavy set lady took off her heels and is now wearing slippers. Go figure!

She's obviously been reading EF and you've hurt her feelings.

Re: Why do heavy set women choose to wear heels?

Arrghhh - my theory echoes another made above - is you are a big girl (and I am) it is very difficult to find clothes that fit- especially in Swiss shops where large sizes are mostly unknown - so retail therapy is limited to jewellery, scarves, handbags and ... shoes! And if she is large, she might have big shoe size = lots of irresistible bargains in the sales (I am a 38/5 - so never find any shoes in sales - and anyway can't wear heels due to serious car accident injury when young!) - so hey presto - the shoes were the only thing she could actually fit in. Now try to have a bit of sympathy - they are obviously agonizingly painful- and she's realised from the look on your face that they made her look even more awful and ridiculous than usual - that must be even more painful than the shoes. Have a heart.

..because it's painful to watch her pidgeon walk, her unskilled attempt at walking, her failed sense of fashion, her ugly misrepresentation of herself.
Basically, she's a reeking sloth with heels...and I don't think anybody could find that attractive.
Tomorrow shut the office door and sleep sounder?

Can anyone tell me why women insist on flying wearing heels? Whats the point? Flying is difficult enough already
Flying? That's nothing.

Here and in Italy, they ride their motorcycles, scooters and mopeds with them (while wearing business suits)!

(probably so they can touch the ground)

My work colleague just strolled by and she weighs in at about the equivalent of a light-weight truck. Nevertheless, she was wearing heels and her head moved horizontally with every step she took (picture a pidgeon). Now, I could see that she was struggling...as a matter of fact, not only she..but the heels and the anklette were hanging on for dear life while she floated by oh so gracefully towards the cafeteria. Why would she do this to herself....?
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against heavy set people...nor do I ridicule someones sense for fashion, but I believe that one must know his/her limitations with what he/she can get away with. End of Monday Morning observation.
She will definitely ruin her feet this way.
It is also amazing how well made high heels are these days to support such weight.
I am well impressed.

Maybe she (and Paddy) need Kinky Boots. They are made to support heavier people.

I'm so sure... Seriously, maybe you should stop worrying about what other people wear/look like and concentrate on getting some work done. The sooner you finish the sooner you can leave & not see her anymore.

I wear business suits and heels every day and go to work via bicycle. My favorite thing in the mornings is to bike faster in my heels than people dressed up in sport outwears. Nothing that can make a better start of the day
