Selecting a Handbag for Your Body Type
When shopping for a new handbag
style this season, make absolute
certain to consider your body type. Not every handbag is ideal for every woman.
It is important to follow a few basic tips to help you find the perfect handbag
for your body type.
If you are slim and tall
You are lucky! Being tall and slim allows you to get away
with most purse styles. Oversize bags, shoulder bags and clutch bags will all look
great. The only thing you really need to watch is the size of the handbag you choose.
Small bags should be avoided as they will make you look bigger. Mid size, large,
floppy or bulky handbags are best. Bright colors, prints and patterns are okay,
too. Avoid shoulder bags with a short strap as they will make you look even taller.
Select handbags that are wider than they are tall.
If you are short and petite
The most important thing to watch for as a petite girl
is the size of the bag you choose. A good rule of thumb is to remember proportion.
Small bags work well for small girls. Choose small bags and wear them close to your
body. Oversized bags aren't for small women. Large bags tend to overwhelm
your frame. Avoid shoulder bags with a long strap as they will make you appear shorter.
If your hips are large
If you wish to draw attention away from the hip area try
a shoulder bag. Choose one with a short strap. The purse can be tucked easily under
the arm. The best look for you is a shoulder bag or a hobo bag that hangs slightly
but ends well above the hip line.
If you are top heavy
If you are generously endowed on the upper half of your
body you will probably want to draw attention away from your bosom or waist. A messenger
bag or a handbag is a good choice for your body type. If you really want a shoulder
bag try one that has a long strap and is fairly large in size.
If you have great curves
A shoulder bag that ends just above the waist is the most
flattering style for you. The only type of bags that you will want to avoid are
ones that are either really big or really small.
If you are a Plus Size
Any style of bag that is wider in width like a Hobo bag
suit you best. Stay away from bags that are small. A small bag will make you look
larger. Go for bags with short to medium length straps. If you enjoy prints,
steer clear of tiny patterns.
