Hi. It's summer time here. It's time I hit the beach. I l wear a bikini but I have short legs.So I always feel uncomfortable on the beach. Is there any way I could wear heels that suit my beach style?

Does anyone know of bikin styles that give the illusion of being taller?Thank you for your help.

Whatever you do just don't wear those hotpant-type-bikini-shorts... they'll make your legs shorter.

Tie-side bikinis are leg lengthening

Also high leg, but not too high because otherwise you look a bit odd lol

If you want to draw attention from your legs and say, to your bust area, where dark bikini bottoms and something funky on top

I agree, just follow the hints above, and DO NOT wear your high heels to the actual beach, it will look sooooo unnatural and overdressed. If you don't go out on the sand but just to the 'beach cafe/club' I think you can wear medium-high heels to feel more comfortable

seriously, what's the general opinion on wearing a bikini with a pair of high heels?
Posh (Victoria Beckham) has recently been slated for it at her hotel pool in portugal, Isn't it a bit naff? I think Id feel like a real wanabe

heels can be marginally ok by the pool if one is in the mood
(or a dedicated show off)
but never -ever on the beach,

basically, one cannot walk with heels in sand, pebbles or rocks..
please dont do it

don't wear heels to the beach! and don't wear platform flip flops! please...

like others said, don't wear hot shorts. your best bet is just regular flip flops.

if you're going to a cafe, pool maybe, etc. try flip flop kitten heels.
