I have always loved the day style but what has kept me away from possibly buying one is that the drop is not long enough for me. I don't like to carry bags that are right under my armpit~ I like a little space~ this is just my preference. Maybe it's b/c the ones at the store are BN and stiffer but does the strap stretch at all? IF SO MAYBE I'M BETTER OFF LOOKING FOR A REALLY USED ONE ON eBay AS OPPOSED TO BUYING BN. THANKS FOR ANY INPUT! I know there are a lot of day lovers here so help!!!
