The Psychology Behind Your Handbag

In the 1940s, the term "bagology" was created - in an attempt to explain the science of handbags and the meaning of how a woman carries her handbag to men.   An article was published which tried to explain that the way a woman carries her handbag tells a lot about her.   In the same way that you can tell a lot about a person simply by the clothes they wear, you can tell a lot about a woman by the handbag she carries.    

Here are some examples - 

1.  Underarm Shoulder Bags -

Handbags which are smaller and fit tightly under the shoulder, usually indicates class and sophistication  

2.  Big and Bulky -

Big and bulky oversized bags are casual and are usually used by younger women - ie students who usually carry lots of books etc and also by down-to-earth women - usually mums who need the room for nappies etc!

3.  Designer Bags

These often cost an arm and a leg and tend to be used by high maintenance women who are confident and will settle for nothing less than a "name".  

4.  Leather Bags with Buckles and Zips -   

Women carrying these bags are usually unleashing their wild side!   They also tend to think before they act and are always ready for a good time.   The extra buckles and zips seem to signify a "bad girl" image!

5.  Bright Colours -     

Brightly coloured handbags usually mean that a woman is fun, friendly and approachable.   Woman who are out-going and sociable tend to choose these colours.   

6.  Black and Brown -  

Women who choose blacks and browns tend to be more reserved, down-to-earth and who may be shy at first but open up after a while.    

What does your handbag say about you?
