Heels elevate your attire and can make you look stunning, sure but, the wrong pair of heels can cause you some real trouble (not to mention the pain!).

For anyone feeling all weary already, this math is worth the effort.
4. Best heel height for parties
Just sit back on a chair, relax your legs and measure the distance between your heels and ball of your foot. This helps in knowing the natural incline of your foot. And you’d know which heel height to don.
5. Hack to Find Out Appropriate Dress Length
It’s important to find the right dress length according to your height. Now, you can do that with ease.
Step 1 – Measure your height from shoulder till your toes. Then divide this height with this simple ratio 1.618. The result is your golden number.
Step 2 – Then measure your dress length from shoulders which should be equivalent to your golden number.
6. DIY technique to know right top length
Make the right choice of tops you wear. Now that you know your golden number. Just measure the same golden number length now from your toes. If it is below your waist then go for longer tops. If the tape measures above your waist then go for tops that are shorter.
7. Know the right jeans fit without wearing them
Sometimes, you don’t feel like trying on your jeans while buying them. So, if you want to make the choice of right fit jeans, then all you need to do is take the jeans and wrap it around your neck. If the ends of the waistline of jeans meet, then it’s a perfect fit. It works, do try!
8. Two Finger Rule to measure Ideal Fit Bra

9. Measure the perfect shorts length
Choosing the shorts that are long will make you look shorter than your actual height. It should be at least two inches above your knees. Unless it’s not bermuda style, make sure the length is ideal.
10. Keep heels shopping the last on your list

11. Shop for clothes that have Lycra
Make sure when you buy your clothes, especially a pair of jeans or some t-shirt, the material is more often than not containing Lycra. It is skin friendly and provides proper shape. For example, your t-shirt should be of 95% cotton and 5% Lycra Spandex while in Jeans there’s almost always at least 2% Lycra.
