I recently bought both the Regular Batignolles and the Horizontal. I could not decide between the 2 so I bought both. Originally the straps on the BH seemed really short. I have long arms and it was just not comfortable. But the SA told me they would lengthen. I was semi-obsessed with the bag so I bought even though it did not sit right. A few weeks ago, I took the BH out of the box to give it some air. I placed some soda cans and bottle of juice in it and left it hanging from a chair. Worked like a charm. The straps are now longer and it fits comfortable on both shoulders.
