Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the tallest of them all?
Not British women, which is why they have to wear the highest heels in Europe!
According to a study performed by foot care brand, Compeed, the Brits wear on average, 3.3 inch heels. They also concluded women in Britain's Northeast wear the highest at 3.46 inches.
Psychologist Emma Kenny explains why this may be:
"A tall woman is considered more assertive, confident, richer, capable, successful, independent and even more intelligent than those who are shorter. British women are ambitious and if putting on a pair of six-inch heels increases their career prospects the savvy individual will do so."
Other countries that are well heeled includes Spain, who came in second place with 3.2 inches, Denmark with 3 inches, Germany with 2.7 inches and France with 2.4 inches.
The jury's still out as to whether or not these women can actually walk in the ankle breakers.
