A Strapping Bag

If you’re over 5’10, you’ll know that your height-related dilemmas extend further than too-tight shoes and ankle swinging trousers.ย Over the years on ATTT we’ve looked at wetsuits with give, prams with higher handles, and how to bag yourself some extra legroom on an aeroplane.

As a six-footer, one thing that I often struggle with (and get emails or comments about) is the cross-body bag. Most bags, even when stretched to as far as the strap will allow, will only fall as far as the waist and sit awkwardly above my hip.

This little green number from New Lookย (ยฃ15.99) has plenty of strap and comes in three different colour-ways. There’s even an extra 3 inches available that I haven’t utilised. I know… wowzers.

Furthermore, it’s a lot more practical than some of the miniature-sized satchels of other stores, so it makes a great all-day handbag.

You can now hover over the image for links to products. The shirt I’m wearing is a size Large and the skirt is a size 12.

Anyone else found any pretty cross-body bags on the highstreet that work with your measurements?

  4. Hi. I came across your website through a Guardian article. As a 6ft tall girl from Zambia(Africa) who does most of her shopping online. I must say I really love your blog as I have a similar style to yours. I. Have spent the past 3 hrs going through your posts and with the coming of Asos tall, I can honestly say I’ll be bankrupt by the end of the year and it will be all your fault! Just kidding. Thank you for this blog and keep showing how wonderful us tall girls can be.
