Happy Monday all!
I love it when a brand recognizes the little things PS women need. Like a longer strap for cross body bags so they comfortably fit over our larger frames for example. I own a few cross body bags and it can be a challenge to find one to comfortably fit across my body. The shorter straps on these bags are made to fit across the body of a smaller woman. As you already know this doesn’t bode well for us. Shorter cross body straps bag ride up underneath our arms or sit under our breasts which is not comfortable at all. While this can be frustrating, Eighty Eight bags (an affordable vegan leather bag brand) is doing something about it. Eighty Eight offers an extra long cross body strap for plus size women up to a size 28. The extra long strap is available in their Jesse, Katie, Hayley and Taylor bags for FREE. The extended strap allows the bag to comfortably fit across PS bodies without any hassles. The strap is adjustable so you can fit it to your liking. It also detaches for those times when you don’t want to wear the bag across your body.
In today’s post I’m wearing the Hayley satchel (also comes in two other colors). To get a better feel for the bag, I wore it while I ran errands yesterday afternoon. After taking it for a test run, I learned its a really good “everyday” bag. The Hayley is big enough to fit all the stuff we carry daily plus other items such as a tablet. I really liked the Hayley’s soft slouchy shape and the magnetic closure on bag’s flap for easy entry. The interior also has pockets for your cell phone and a zip up compartment. The extended strap did what it was supposed to do and it fit across my body perfectly. I was able to freely move around without constantly adjusting the bag around my body. I was pleasantly impressed with the Hayley bag and look forward to making it a closet staple.
So if you’re looking for a good bag that won’t bust your wallet, give Eighty Eight bags a try!
Have a great day!
