Is there an age when wearing the bum bag...

Looks "wrong". I love the bum bag but I feel that it is a style that works best on a younger woman. Any thoughts? I know I should just wear what I love, but I wanted to see what everyone's thoughts are about it. Thanks in advance for the input!!!

Personally I think it depends on size and style. I'm 5'9" and about 160lbs. I found the bumbag hit me in an awkward way. If the strap were longer and it could hand a little lower, I would have been in. I don't love how it sits across my chest and prefer something that sits more on my hip. Given my height and the strap - this wasn't going to happen.

Definitely no! I see bumbags worn by people young and old carrying it

Thank you for both of your feedback. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to try the bag on yet, but I agree, I want it to hang lower. I am only 5’2” so maybe it would work for me.

I’m also 5’2” and it can hang all the way down to my hip!

Nope! I’m barely 5ft and don’t prefer it as a waist bag on my short torso. I have a full chest and like it as a sling in the front but it’s most convenient as a sling in the back. I also like it as a simple hobo. I am not old but I’m not 20 either and I don’t find it having and age limit. For my personal taste, this bag works for all. HTH :flowers:
