Hi all. This bag just arrived today and I wanted to share what a Large Hug Me looks like with handles that are 2" longer than the standard issue. Being a size 10-12, I did not find the standard handles were very flattering or comfortable on my shoulder, although they did fit. Wearing the bag over a coat on my shoulder would have been completely out of the question. Here are pics with the handles changed to 2" longer. I do not feel that it alters the look of the bag. I think that it drapes very well on me with these extra 2". I intended for this bag to primarily be worn over the shoulder and was a little bummed that it just wasn't working for me with the standard handles. I am very happy! For reference, I am 5'4". The bag is packed with my things.

Hope this helps someone!

Thank you for the pictures! She is LOVELY!

The reason for not even entertaining the idea of ever getting a hug me, due to the standard handles being too short, just flew completely out the window.

Completely. Out the window. :devil:

WOWSERS!!!!!!:yahoo:

I just LOVE it! Thank you so much for sharing these pics.

I think I know the answer to this question but are you happy that you didn't ask for 3 inches longer? Personally, I think it's just perfect and can't wait to receive mine!

that is a beautiful bag. i like how you customized it requesting longer handles. is it comfortable to wear over the shoulder? was there any cost to extend the handles? did jackie offer 3 or 4 inch extensions too? how long is your total strap drop?

i think the longer handles allows it to drape more which accentuates the pebbled texture. nice choice!

Camommy, do you know the measurement of the handle in inches? Right now my Hug Me's handles measure 12". My Love Me Midi handles measure 18" from one end to the other. I'm wondering if your handles are lengthened to 18" to give the drop an extra couple of inches or if it's less than 18". Pikey1 (I think that's right) had her pewter Hug Me handles lengthened to 18".
