Question:Advice for the height challenged?

Aside from wearing heels, which I don't really like to do, what are some things I can do with the way I dress to make my appearance "taller" and "slimmer"

ha! good luck with that, right?

Answer:

I've found that when I wear clothes that fit well I feel much taller than the five feet three inches I actually am. Instead of drowning in long sweatshirts and pants much too big, a simple piece (like a fitted blazer) somehow convinces me to stand straighter (and look taller, I assume!).

Answer:

I have the same issue. I've found that when I wear well-cut trousers and matching shoes, I tend to look taller (even more so if they are in a dark color).
