Choose the Handbag that Flatters Your Body Type

But, besides the style and look, what else you should consider when purchasing a handbag? It’s important to find the purse that will flatter the rest of your look, isn’t it? However, don’t forget to take your body type in consideration. Because every handbag isn’t ideal for every woman, carry the bag you would like to purchase to the dressing room and check how it suits you from all angles in the mirror. In general, there are some basic things you should keep in mind.

If you are Petite, skip over-sized handbags. Forget what you see in Hollywood, larger bags will overwhelm your frame. Also, don’t think about shoulder bags with a long strap, because they can weigh you down and make you look shorter than you already are.

If you are a Plus-Size beauty, make sure you don’t carry a handbag that’s too small. Instead, go for a boxy or large structured bag to balance out your lovely curves. Prints are alright, but better skip tiny patterns.

Tall & Thin ladies should opt for a handbag with a slouchy, short shape. A purse should be wider than taller: a clutch, for example. To avoid looking even taller, don’t carry a shoulder bag with a short strap.

If you have a Curvy Figure, the most flattering style would be a shoulder handbag ending just above your waist. You should, however, avoid the purses too small or too big in relation to your overall body size.

Large Hips can look really sexy, but women usually want to draw attention to that area. A hobo handbag or a shoulder bag that hangs slightly, but ends above the waist line is perfect for this body type.

Women who are Top Heavy, on the other hand, usually look for bags that draw attention away from their bosom. If, however, you would like to wear a shoulder handbag, it’s recommended to purchase the larger sized one with a long strap.

So, next time you go shopping, think about our simple tips and we’re sure you’ll make the best choice ever! Stay fabulous and gorgeous with our help!
