What is a crossbody length?

  1. I'm having a tough time knowing what fits comfortably as Chanel makes bags for that are shorter cross body such as the m/l CF, but the Walk On Chain, seems comfortable?

    About how many inches does a drop chain have to be for a person to wear it crossbody and doesn't look to long or too short? I'm 5'2 and i'm wondering if this vary largely based on body stature.
     
  2. I would say 20 to 26 inches.
    Personally, I am 5'6" and I stick to 23 inches or longer, but I know some people who will do cross body with 20 inches.
    It depends not just on your height, but your torso length, also your girth (not sure if that is the right word!) topped with personal preference on where you like your bag to fall. I like my cross bodys to bounce off my hip bone. Some don't mind them falling higher.
