I have had the oak bayswater for a year and think that it still is in the same shape as I bought it. I have used it almost everyday.

Hi guys,

So I recently bought a Bayswater from Naughtipidgin and wanted a solution to the "saggy bottom". I had a look on UK Etsy and managed to find a handbag base liner made of acrylic to resolve the problem - http://www.etsy.com/shop/JohnnysBottoms?ref=seller_info

Now I seem to have been lucky and my Bays holds its shape well, but I think the photos show the difference the base liner makes. Hope this helps anyone who is having an issue with a saggy/slouchy bottom

Base liner and contents of bag...

Before and after photos. As I said my Bays holds its shape well, but I think you can see the difference:

If I was going to order this again, I would have measured slightly tighter length ways, as I left some space which means it may have the potential to move around a bit at the bottom of the bag. I didn't want to measure too tight as I didn't want it to look really obvious that there was something at the bottom of the bag, but I think I was a bit too conservative when I measured.

Hope this helps someone!

It really does depend on the leather your bag is made from, the weight you put into it and how - eg: balanced or not - as much as frequency of use.

Absolutely fair point - and I reckon a structured liner will enable contents to be more neatly and securely packed, so therefore a more even weight distribution. My, how technical us ladies become with our bag issues!!!.....

Wow! That's an excellent result and at only 12 it's money very well spent!

I've had mine for about 4 years (black Buffalo shine), I've used it a lot (I used to use it for work with my laptop in it) and it has become slouchy which I really like. When I put stuff inside it holds its shape perfectly but when empty it doesn't stand on its own. It's a big plus for me as I love slouchy bags and it's great to have a work bag that looks structured and still relaxed
