Let me ask you lovely, how poised and graceful do you think you are? And, how's your DEPORTMENT as a feminine woman?
Well, an excellent deportment test for gauging how graceful and poised you are, is to first stand with your heels almost together, and your hands on the hips. Then, slowly rise on your toes, carefully noticing just how far you have to sway your body forward before you begin to rise.
Deportment teachers all agree that when you’re truly poised, you’ll rise directly onto the toes without any need of swaying forward.
