Pick the Right Handbag for your Body Type

Choosing the right handbag for you body type can be very difficult. Most women always keep their eyes on hot styles and designs of handbags so they are more focused on following the latest fashion trends without considering if the handbags will suit their figure. But, keeping up with the latest fashion is not just enough to make you shine.

Here are some tips to help you choose your handbag

If you are petite

The most important point here is the size of the handbag you carry. Smaller people can easily become overwhelmed by large handbags.

Avoid shoulder bags with a long strap as they will weigh you down, making you look even shorter and pick a style that is taller than it is wide.


If you are tall and skinny

Choose a large unstructured handbag like the hobo style. If you prefer a smaller bag, choose one that hits you right at your waist when worn over your shoulder.

Both of these will help you create the illusion of a curvier figure.


If you are plus sized

Don't carry a bag that is too small as smaller bags will make you appear out of proportion when it’s compared to your size. It is better for you to carry a bag that is wider than it is tall as it will help balance out your figure. If you love prints, steer clear of tiny patterns as it will only make you look larger.

Now that you know what style of handbag will flatter you the most, you can make a more confident decision when it comes to purchasing a new bag.

Good luck!
