Hello!
I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

I am sorry to tell that there is no way to increase your height after 18 years old.
An individual stops growing in height after the fusion of the epiphyses of the long bones, which occurs by the age of 16-18 years in females.
Considering the fact that you are 28 years old your bones had already fused and neither food supplements or specific exercises can have an obvious effect in increasing your height.
Just accept your height and try to feel comfortable with it.Be happy and enjoy yourself.

Take care!
Dr.Rovena Murati
