Hi all - what are your thoughts on the Estrela NM vs. the Neverfull MM? I bought my Neverfull about 4 years ago and have used it a ton - frankly, I am looking to upgrade to something that I can use everyday for work. Definitely tote size.

Any thoughts on the Estrela? Is it comfy crossbody? Other suggestion for a neverfull replacement?

Thanks!

I highly recommend the estrela nm as an alternative to the neverfull mm! The shoulder straps are very comfortable and the longer crossbody strap is nice to have as an option (even though I rarely use it). Overall, it's a gorgeous, well-made bag! The longer crossbody strap is a bit too thin to use when the bag is fully loaded, imho. I solved that problem by getting one of the new canvas guitar straps from LV.

Hi, do u find using the thicker straps stop the sides from folding/bending as much? I stopped using my reg strap because I hated how it made the sides look. I think the strap is too thin and too long. Looking at ur pics it doesn't look like it changes the shape of the bag much. I love the look of the strap- I may have to reconsider getting one.

I do think the shape of the bag remains a bit more intact when using the thicker strap, but the strap still pulls the sides up a little because of the way the bag is designed. The thicker strap is MUCH more comfortable and sturdy than the thin strap.
