I've decided to hang onto my Speedy 35 after much deliberating. However, I'm having just a sag question. I decided that I don't like the base shaper that I have. I don't like it because it's completely stiff and makes a like a ridge on the side of the bag as well. I don't know - it was like a weird flat bottom. No likie...and made the bag seem quite unwieldy frankly.....
So then I took it out and put a few things and found that it sagged too much. I know some don't think there's such a thing as 'too much sag' but it didn't look so good.
So took that out. And put in a Cooking Light magazine and JUST RIGHT! It kept the shape of the bottom with just the slightest bit of sag.....it really was nice! But I don't want a Cooking Light Magazine on the bottom of my purse with fraying weird pages!

Does anyone have a nice light-weight idea for a 'light' sag? Something that won't make my bag look like a stiff piece of luggage or a floppy mess? I'm not crafty, I don't own a sewing machine....should I get like a manila folder maybe? Yuck. A .99 folder in my $700 bag......but what else can I do? Ideas?

TIA!!!!

I have found I dont care for a lot of sag but dont like the structured look either. I decided with my miniline to put a mag(ok/gossip ) on the bottom. I cut it down so it was just a tad narrower then the bag and it worked perfect. I also covered it with some odd material I had laying around. Now it just sits perfect on the bottom and done lift.

I have the pursebrite and when my bag is full with my things, it just sags a little, not too much, not too little, just nice. But I have a 30..
or
Maybe you could use a nice thin cardboard? You can buy pretty decorated ones in hobbyshops or warehouses...

Does that hippiegal purse organizer allow it to sag a bit? I had a purseket in my 25, but with the 25 not really having too much of a sag issue, I couldn't tell......
Anyone with a hippiegal organizer? I rather like the way that it 'stitches' into the top part of the bag. I know that even the jumbo purseket won't fit all that great into a 35 either (too small)......

And I've never heard of 'pursebrite'. I have to look into that!
