Best Handbags For Your Body Type

Handbag is an essential fashion accessory for all women. It makes their outfit complete and also holds all the essentials that they need to carry. Most importantly, handbags are a fashion statement and compliment their figure as well. But most women do not know that choosing the right hand bag for their body type can flatter their figure, as much as a pair of jeans does. Choosing perfect handbag isn’t just about latest style, colors or trends. Not every handbag that looks cute, stylish or fits your lifestyle will look nice and work for you. While shopping for a hand bag, you need to consider your body type as well.

Here Are 5 Best Handbags For Your Body Type:


If you are curvy or voluptuous woman (plus size), avoid choosing slouchy round bags. Instead choose a handbag that is long and sleek. Also avoid prints that are too small or too big in relation to your overall body size. Large prints will draw unnecessary attention to your size and small prints will make you look oversized. A shoulder handbag with a length above your waist will be most flattering for you.


Tall And Thin

Almost all handbag style will suit your figure but carrying slouchy, rounded bags will help to add some curves to your figure. Oversized Clutch handbags, shoulder handbags will suit your body size. The only thing you need to consider is the size of the bag. Avoid choosing small handbags as they will make you looker bigger than you are. Instead choose large, bulky or midsize handbags.

Tall and thin


If you have pear shaped body and carrying excess weight on your thighs and hips, look for the short length handbags that hangs up to the chest, not hit your hips. This will help to draw away attention from the problem areas.


Thick Waist

If your upper body is too heavy, you should choose a handbag with longer length. A hip length bag will be a good choice. Avoid bags that hang around the mid-section.

Thick waist


Small bag will look best on your figure. A handbag too big will make you look even shorter than you are. Small bags look best on petite women. Select bags that are vertically longer that can stretch the appearance of your height.


While buying handbags, try them in front of a mirror just as you do while you choose apparel. Don’t get tempted by the trendy designs and shapes that do not compliment your figure. Handbags come in huge variety and style; with little patience you will get the one that works best for you.
