Cherished for their reliable comfort, platform shoes have been a woman's heel of choice for 25 years.

But with this season's return to thinner-soled shoes, Vogue has declared that the reign of the platform, which they believe "enlarges the lower part of our bodies," is over, the Daily Mail reported.

Shoe designer and stylist Tabitha Simmons feels that when the shoe is big and clunky, one can look a bit heavier. Jimmy Choo creative director, Sandra Choi, agreed, saying that single soles have a daintier feel.
