Choose The Right Bag For Your Body Type

Admit it – you are prepared to spend countless hours in a store to find the perfect dress or the perfect pair of fitted trousers, but when it comes to your bag, you usually just go for the one that catches your eye, without considering the way it could flatter your silhouette. Here are a few tips that you should take into consideration when buying your next bag:

If you’re petite – never choose a bag that overpowers your small frame. Instead, go for a bag that is longer vertically, such as a tote, to elongate the appearance of your torso.

If you’re tall and thin – choose a slouchy or a rounded bag to add curves to your figure.

If you’re curvy – go for a structured model – a rectangular shape or even a long and sleek clutch.

If you’re pear-shaped – choose a bag that hangs at the length of the upper torso, instead of the hip area, so that it will draw attention away from the problem areas. A satchel or a bowler bag work beautifully.

If you’re busty – go for the opposite of pear-shaped – choose a bag that hangs at the length of your mid-section, avoiding bags that have short straps. A cross-body bag is a great option.
