For the past years, one of the quickly and most well-known accessory being sold in the market is the handbag. Handbags are available in different designs, styles, colors and sizes which make it a bit confusing to choose the perfect handbag suited for you. A lot of women are doubtful about the type of handbags that will work best with their body shape and often end up picking the wrong one. Admit it or not, choosing the right handbag suited for your body type will make you look your best. With so many options, you will realize that although a particular handbag looks fantastic in the market, sometimes it will not look as great and suitable when you wear it.

Presently, there is a wide array of designers for handbags that are available in the market. Thus, you have to make it a point to pick the right one for you. In order to get the perfect handbag, you can follow some tips that will guide you in choosing the right handbag that will not only be perfect for its intended purpose but will also look good on the type of body that you have.

If you are one of those who are fortunate to have a curvy figure or an hourglass type of body, you need to pick a handbag that reaches just above your waist. This length will flatter the type of figure you have because it will emphasize your waistline. Handbags that are medium in size will be perfect for a curvy figure to complement the already stunning body type.

Tall and Thin
The good thing about having a type of body that is long and lean is that almost any type of handbag will work. From shoulder bags to clutches, any form of handbag will look fantastic on you. However, you need to be careful in choosing sizes if you have a tall and thin figure. Oversized bags will look perfect on you while smaller ones will make you look taller. If you prefer to buy a handbag that is smaller in size, find one that will fit cozily beneath the shoulders.

Plus Size
If you have a plus size figure, a small bag and bags with shorter straps are not the best options as they will only make you look bigger than you already are. Find a handbag that has a larger and a bit wider style because they will create an illusion that you are smaller than your normal body size.

Plump and short
The best type of handbag for those who are short and plump are smaller bags or shorter purses because they will add height and have a deceiving effect that will make you look taller.

It is very important to choose the right handbag for your body type – it can help you in looking extra good. Choosing the right handbag greatly depends on the type of body you have however, you must also consider the outfit
you will be wearing and the purpose of the handbag. When using handbags, it is also important to consider your mood for the day and your fashion instincts to see if they will make your overall appearance look more pleasing.
