The right handbag for your body shape

The right handbag for your body shape

A lady should constantly consider her body type while making fashion-related decisions. Every body type is attractive, and each has a piece that would complement it better than another body type. The style of handbag you carry can influence your appearance, just like clothing does. There are more connections between size, form, and bag selection than you realize.

Before anything else, you must be able to describe and understand your body form. There are five different body forms:

  • You have an inverted triangle shape if your shoulders are broader than your hips.
  • You have a pear-shaped figure if your waist and shoulders are narrower than your hips.
  • You have a rectangle shape if your shoulder, waist, and hips are all the same size.
  • You have an apple shape if your waist is wider than your shoulders and hips.
  • You have an hourglass figure if your hips and shoulders are proportionate to your thin waist.

Therefore, if your body is shaped like an inverted triangle, you should get bags with lengthy straps. In this way, the bag would rest against or on top of your hips. Doing so would draw attention to your waist to give yourself a balanced appearance. Don't choose extremely little or huge shoulder bags with wide straps because you don't need extra room around your chest. Try clutches long-strapped handbags, crossbody purses, and belt bags.

If you have a pear-shaped physique, you should maintain the attention on your shoulders and chest as long as you don't want to appear bulkier from the waist down. Only the strap's length needs to be taken into consideration. You shouldn't wear your purse below your waist. Generally speaking, shoulder bags and bucket bags are the best options. To avoid drawing attention to your hips, avoid carrying bags with long straps, loose bags, or bags that fall on your hips, such as messenger bags and waist bags.

If you have a rectangular body, you must modify the shape by adding curves to make up for your crisp figures. You value the bag's design and construction because of this. You can wear a clutch under your arm, or a hobo bag randomly dispersed across your shoulders to give the illusion of size and flexibility. Maintain the strap's length so that your purse hangs about your hips.

Women with apple-shaped bodies may want to minimize their middles to give the appearance of a smaller waist. We advise against the use of long shoulder straps. Top handle purses and handbags made of hard leather are ideal for you. Avoid sling or crossbody purses since they tend to protrude from your body when carrying them. Small luggage would also give the impression that you are larger than you are.

The hourglass shape is regarded as a fantastic choice for any sort of bag, as everything typically looks beautiful if you have it. You must still maintain proportionality. Oversized purses should not be worn by small or shorter women. Avoid selecting bags that conceal your attractive physique. Ladies, resist the urge to grab the first bag you come across. Pick something good to both you and your body instead.
