anu, I'm 5'4" and I have a Cafe Besace which I use A LOT! Yes, it's a tad big, but not too overpowering for my height.Please take a photo. I saw a photo in the other thread where a fellow TPFer modeled a blue besace and she is around 5"4. I am seriously considering of getting one in naturel. I am 5"7. I think choosing a lighter colored besace will be better because it is more feminine and would not look as heavy as a dark colored one.
Yes the strap is on the shortest setting.I love it! In your picture, are you wearing it on the shortest setting? I've been thinking about this one, but I like messengers that ride high on my waist or hip and i'm ony 5'4"
