i asked this Q in prada shop days ago while trying the leather tote. the SA said i can cut the bottom of the paper bag (cause it's hard), trim it to proper size, and put it in the bottom of your handbag. then the bag doesn't drop that much and it looks nicer. i tried on my new miu miu spring satchel and prada bag and it works, esp if you take heavy magazine and labtop. do give it a try..
