The strap length descriptions below are generalizations and are provided as a
guide only. Measuring is essential for the correct fit.
12"-29" - Short handle straps are used to carry handbags either as a
top-handle (carried with your hand or over your arm), or, as a tight-fitting
hobo-style strap. If you're a petite person, a shorter strap may work well to
hold your bag tightly under your arm. Keep in mind, when attaching a short
handle strap to a hobo style handbag, the weight of the bag will change the
shape of the bag and increase the drop length quite a bit, sometimes double, so
be sure to test this on your handbag.
30"-39" - Shoulder straps are generally in the 30-inch range and are typically
used to carry bags closely under your arm and close to your body. This is a
popular length because the strap can also function as a top-handle for other
bag styles, such as a tote.
40"-49" - Longer shoulder straps are generally in the 40-inch range and allow
your bag to hang down near your hip when worn over your shoulder (depending on
how tall you are, of course). For the petite person, this length can often be
used to wear your bag across your body, or often referred to as the "cross
body" position. When using as a cross body strap, this will have the top of
your handbag sitting near your waist, depending on your height, weight, and
clothing. For the perfect fit, always double check your measurements.
50"-59" - Crossbody/Messenger straps are generally in the 50-inch range. This
type of strap allows your bag to be worn securely over your head so that the
strap rests on your shoulder and the bag crosses your chest then sits around
your hip area on the opposite side of your body.
