Handbags for Curvy Figures
For curvy women, a shoulder bag that ends just above the waist is the most flattering style. The only type of bags to avoid is the one that looks too big or too small in relation to your overall body shape. Buti’s Camel Suede and Leather Satchel Bag or Francesco Biasia’s Naomi Leather Satchel Bag will create an edgy, feminine look accentuated by its rich color.
When shopping for a new bag this season, take time to ponder over your body shape. Don’t base your choice solely on trends – bags also need to flatter your body.
In general, when it comes to handbags, the opposite shape of your body type is said to be the most flattering. While shopping, head to the dressing room, carry the bag as you normally would and check it out from all angles in the mirror. A handbag can affect your body, look and shape in the same way as a well-fitting pair of jeans: it can add or take off a few pounds!
