The One Thing You Should Never Do When Carrying A Handbag

May 10, 2016 by Justine Schwartz

I love a good designer bag (is it bad if I asked to be buried with my Cabas Chyc?), but I am completely guilty of packing mine to gills with books and water bottles and extra pairs of shoes (seriously) to the point where I get knots in my neck and I have issues with my opposite hip (no, this is real, guys).

Obviously, there’s a problem with that–and the one thing you should never do is carry a handbag that is too heavy–but the question is: exactly how heavy should it be?

According to Dr. Evelyn Haworth, chiropractor and co-inventor (with her husband Kelly Haworth) of the Tru-Align Body System, shoulder bags should be 1/10th of your total body weight. So, if you weight 140 pounds, you bags should be no more than 14 pounds.

“Ideally, it would be less so you’re not putting too much strain on your body–and the wider the strap, the better,” says Dr. Haworth. “Be sure to not always wear it on the same side of your body.”

Well, there you go!
