tips: match your handbag to your body shape

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I found this guide useful when shopping for my girlfriend. I won't say what category she "fits" into though...

Universal tip 1: If you are unsure about your body type, choose a purse that lies in the middle of your torso. This size is universally flattering for most women.

Universal tip 2: A handbag accentuates any part of the body that it hits.

Short women: Choose longer bags.

Short and round women: Choose a tall, rectangular tote with long straps, or a long sleek structured clutch.

Tall and thin. Choose short, plump bags. Hobo bags. Pouchy bags or half moon shaped bags.

Pear shaped women: Choose structured cigar box purse, or sleek rectangular bag.

Large busted women: Avoid close fitting handbags which rest under the arm. (These will further cram your bust and feel cramped) Instead choose a purse with long shoulder straps.

Petite women: If you are very petite avoid extremely large bags. Instead choose a long clutch or retangular tote that hits your leg and gives the appearence of elongation.

Slim waist: Choose a designer purse that has shoulder straps that allow the bottom of the bag to hit your waist.

6 feet tall: Avoid cute, miniture evening bags or mini handheld pouches that you will overwhelm with your stature. If you want to accentuate cleavage: Pick a bag that has short straps that lie right under your armpit.
