Fans and avid Royal watchers noticed a small albeit an interesting detail about the Duchess of Sussex Meghan’s shoes.

Fashion experts revealed the reason Meghan always chooses shoes that are a size or two big for her.

The Royal Ascott events are known to be a showcase of aristocratic glamour. The Duchess too was on the top of her game with a dazzling Givenchy outfit and an elegant hat.

Those with a keen observation skill noticed Meghan wearing chick black leather pumps, at least a size too big for her.


Commenting on the intriguing detail, fashion expert Harriet Davey said that people who spend a long time on their feet, especially in heels, choose to buy one or two sizes up for public events.

The reason for the practice is quite simple – to avoid the painful blisters. The problem is faced by many individuals who stand for hours and end up suffering from swelling that turns well-fitting shoes into some torturous equipment.

“Celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they're at an event or on the red carpet, and it's for one reason we can all relate to - to avoid blisters."

A swelling on the feet can cause blisters which became painful as the day progresses. Spending too much time in tight fitting high heels can result in deformation of bones, painful and unaesthetic bunions in the long term.

Though the oversized shoes save the wearers from painful blisters, can one walk in them without any awkward movements?


Davey said that the secret was to stuff the toes of the shoes with gauze, cotton wool, or another soft padding, which can be removed without anyone noticing if the feet start to swell.

It was not the only time Duchess Meghan was caught with oversized shoes. Close observation of her photographs shows that her shoes are always a size or two big for her.


Her engagement photographs also reveal the truth. A pair of strappy beige suede stilettos she wore, looked several sizes too big.

It was the same story during an official visit to Belfast in March earlier this year when she wore a pair of burnt orange Jimmy Choo velvet shoes.

Meghan has proved her incredible skill for combining her style and glamor with common sense time and again.
