Hey Bees. Being a plus size girl, high heels hurt the center of my feet within minutes of wearing them. I would really LOVE to wear beautiful heels to the wedding though. Anything I can do to make the more comfortable?

I’ve tried so many kinds of inserts and nothing I have tried has ever helped make my heels more comfy (I’m actually petite, so I don’t think heels are comfy at any size! Darn things have to be so cute yet so painful!).

Insoles. They will work wonders if you find the right ones! I’d either try a pair of Dr. Scholl’s for high heels, or go into a good shoe store and see if they can recommend or fit you for some good insoles.
If the middle of your foot is hurting, my guess is it’s probably about arch support (which is non-existent in most high heels I’ve had.)

Foot petals help. So does ibuprofen. And a couple drinks.

Try them on in person (walk around for several mins) before you buy them since they should be comfortable in the store. If they aren’t, then find a different pair until you do notice them being comfortable. Break them in at home as well, not just 5 mins but a couple hours minimum. If they still aren’t comfortable, then they won’t be no matter what else you do. Some people find gel insoles to be comfortable but others don’t, so try those out and see if that works for you.

Insoles for the arches and wearing them enough to stretch out the toe box so it fits well.

If shoes aren’t comfortable when you buy them, they never will be. I second the cole haan
or sofft brand

I’m with littlest bird – ibuprofen X4, and a couple stiff drinks! Have done it many times. The blisters the next day are worth it

i agree, if the shoe is really painful to begin with there’s little you can do about making them more comfortable. If they’re slightly uncomfortable then you can use an insole to ease the pain. I’d give these a try http://www.stilettohardware.com, i’ve been using them for a few months and really like them. I use insoles in all my shoes because I’m quite petite so i have room to spare. hope this helps! also definitely take time to break in the shoes before the wedding 😉
