The Right Handbag For Your Body Type

Aug 17, 2007
What woman doesn't love handbags? In fact, if you try to go through a woman's closet you will definitely find many bags in varying sizes and in an assortment of colors to choose from. Most men don't get the idea of why women should have several bags. Basically women can't live on having just a single bag because the various bags are there to mix and match with their different ensembles and is one of the most important accessories that could definitely put an outfit together.

A handbag is just like a pair of jeans. Having the right handbag can definitely flatter your figure so it doesn't go to say that just because one bag looks great on another that it'll look great on you. Getting a handbag that is flattering for your figure can definitely make you look slimmer (no kidding!) and can give you chic and style no matter how simple your outfit may be.

The shape of your handbag should be opposite your body figure. If you are rounded and curvaceous, structured bags would be the best way to go. It doesn't' have to be the hard box type but those in a squarish or rectangular shape with soft silhouettes in a fabric or leather material would flatter your figure. For women who are thin and tall, rounded bags or those that look slouchy like a hobo bag for example would do the trick. For those who may be short and voluptuous, try a handbag that is sleek like a rectangular clutch or one that is somewhat tall to give the illusion of height. There are numerous popular bag shapes and if you are not that familiar with them, you can always research on the internet for how the particular shapes look.

In terms of scale, the bag's size should be in proportion with your body figure. A small and cute bag would look lost with an oversized figure. In the same manner, the small bag would likely emphasize more her big shape. A petite woman would look smaller if she brought with her a huge bag.

The length of the bag is important. Wherever the bag's bottom would sit on your body, it would definitely accentuate that particular body part. Shoulder bags that sit on the hip area will definitely draw attention to the hips. Bags that go in the mid-torso area would accentuate the waist.

In shopping for a bag, shop as if you are buying apparel. Always try the bag on in front of a mirror. Don't be drawn to purchasing trendy bags most especially if it doesn't suit or flatter your figure.
