For some, growing taller through natural means may not be as easily accomplished as it is for others. Depending on your physical condition and/or age, exercises or other procedures used to help gain natural height may not be feasible. Or perhaps you’re only looking for a temporary solution to make yourself look taller, without actually gaining any height.
No matter the circumstances, there are three methods in particular that can quickly and easily give the appearance to others that you’re taller than you actually are.
1) The first, and probably most obvious way to look taller is through the use of footwear, be it insoles inside your currently existing footwear, or a new set of footwear designed to leave you higher off the ground.
There are plenty of specially designed shoes on the market which can give you a height gain of two inches, while still being completely discreet. Insoles on the other hand are generally limited to a height gain of one inch, lest they not properly fit within the desired footwear.
2) Next is clothes, and not only can clothes make the man or woman, they can also make the man or woman appear taller. Unlike footwear, which will actually make you taller while wearing them, proper attire will not make you physically taller in any way, but can give off the appearance that you are.
Wearing tighter fitter clothing should be your first priority, as loose or baggy clothes give you a more squat appearance. Vertical lines on shirts are another great way to give off the illusion of being taller. Women should wear compact dresses or skirts, and no-waste pants. Men should also stick to wearing their pants as low as possible (within reason), and wearing cuff-less pants is also advised.
3) Climbing to the top of the ladder, we reach your hair, which also plays a role in how tall you look. This may require slight adjustments in your hair length and style to implement, but can have great effects when used properly.
We’re not talking about going out and getting a Mohawk or anything, but tricks that can be used include spiking your hair at the front for men, and women wearing their hair up.
Using one or more of these techniques, you can easily give the appearance of being a few inches taller than you actually are, no long workout regime required.
