But, did you know you there are certain handbag shapes and sizes that complement different body types? It’s true! Read on to find out which style best suits your shape so you buy your new purse with confidence.
If you’re pear shaped (Waist and rear are wider than the shoulders): Search for a handbag that falls between the natural waist and hips, which will make shoulders appear broader and help balance out the figure.
Purse to try: A satchel
If you’re ruler shaped (Waist, shoulders and hips are all the same size): Look for a handbag that falls at the natural waist, which adds slight curves to a long and lean body type.
Purse to try: A hobo or satchel
If you’re petite (have an overall small frame): Seek out a vertical-shaped handbag to help elongate a tiny frame.
Purse to try: An oversized shopper
If you’re apple shaped (Shoulders and thighs are narrower than bust and waist): Create overall balance by wearing a wider handbag with a defined structure.
Purse to try: A tote
If you’re an inverted triangle (waist and hips are smaller than shoulders): Look for a handbag with longer straps to attract attention to the smallest part of the body.
Purse to try: A crossbody
