How To Choose Bags?

1. Choose Small Bags Rather Than Big Bags

When picking the best handbags for petite women, size plays a significant role in how well they fit shorter people. Short girls should choose a bag proportional to their height.

Minor to medium-sized bags can meet daily needs, so there is no need to choose too large bags. It will play the opposite effect.

The small volume of the bag will not be too big in contrast with our body, and clothing with a good match will allow us to dress to achieve twice the effect with half the effort.

2. Choose Short Straps Rather Than Long Straps

The length of the shoulder straps of the bag is also critical. Choose short straps instead of long, let them fall on the side of your waist, and can set off your beautiful shoulders from the visual effect of pulling up the proportion of the body.

Even the crossbody bag should choose a slightly shorter style of chain straps because the chain is too long and will elongate the upper body proportion, making the lower half shorter. Excessively long straps make you feel like the entire thing is pulled downward, a minefield for small girls.

As long as the length above the hip is acceptable, the most appropriate size is probably the hip bone.

Small women tend to have narrow shoulders as well. A slim shoulder strap is ideal for short girls, which will not completely dominate the original small shoulders and can show more shoulder skin.
