I'm planning on doing my first bikini comp sometime between April and the summer. I'm 5'4 with a short torso and long legs. I've been looking around to get an idea for heels, but haven't found anything that works. Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would go with the 5' and a slight platform, nothing to crazy so that you can be comfortable walking in them. I like snaz75.comStephanie Miller

Girl, you gotta choose a heal that works with your body! i'm also 5'4, and have a high heal and short ones - and i choose the height i wear depending on how my legs come in... If you have lean/skinny legs/ or really cut - your better off getting a shorter heel to keep them looking full, if you have thicker legs you should go with a higher heel to make them look leaner. if you get a high 5" heel and you have lean/skinny legs/ or really cut you will just make them look even leaner and or cut and for bikini thats not what you want. i think this is a good tip for everyone who posted on this thread, because higher is not always better!
