I'm not a small woman and I just want to pick up my bag and slide it easily on my shoulder. It seems like the new trend are these super-snug straps and I'm just going crazy about it now. I was thinking of getting a Carly this week and I went to Macy's to check it out and was just frustrated. I know there would be extra room after the stuffing is out and it relaxes, but still I thought there'd be more length. Maybe I'll just get the Ergo crossbody and call it a day.
