    Plus wearing heels works so well when carrying a desktop computer, a couple laptops or monitors from one room to another! Those lower cut sweaters and blouses that look so nice when standing up, are sooo great looking when bending over to lift a computer, run a cable, replacing a NIC, etc.  It's pretty hard to lift a desktop computer with one hand and hold your shirt closed/up with the other!

    I work IT and depending on what's on tap for the day, wear either jeans or slacks, sneakers or boots (no heels higher than 1/2 inch). Shirts, sweaters or shirts and jackets are cut to allow movement without letting things pop out!

    Heck, the last time I wore heels to work was in 1992. I was walking in an Army facility with tiled floors that were wet due to snow. Slipped, hurt my back and ended up having back surgery. After I recovered from the surgery, told myself "Never again." When I go on interviews, low heeled boots or flats. Never lost an interview or job yet because of it, and I've been doing it for 20+ years now.
