I just bought the jumbo and I am 5'3". With the strap doubled, the opening is comfortably at my fingertips. Worn cross body messenger, it's just below my hip; still relatively easy to open. I like a very roomy bag and this is smaller than a lot of mine, especially the Nancy Gonzalez tote (which is huge) that I've been carrying since Christmas. But it fits a lot, despite that, probably more than ample for most women. Hope that helps!
