Handbags For Women Who Hate Handbags

Okay this idea may be hard to grasp but there are women who simply hate handbags. There can be one of several reasons that a woman doesn't like or want to carry a handbag.

Some find them cumbersome or bulky, getting in their way, causing back or shoulder pain.Some just don't like keeping up with handbags and don't feel the need to carry one. Many had rather carry what little they need in their pockets.

Unfortunately that becomes impossible at certain times and these same women are forced to carry something, even if that means carrying some form of a purse or handbag.Designers realize this need and have created many different designs suited just for these women who need something a little less traditional.

There are handbags designed to be carried like backpacks, making them easy to throw over the shoulder or carry or your back with ease.

Some are small, some are large but they serve the purpose, being both functional and comfortable yet still fashionable.There are many designs that will fit a variety of lifestyles and careers. Maybe a small clutch bag or one that fits over the shoulder but looks more like a briefcase.

Regardless of which style you go with, just know there is a huge variety of designer handbags available, even handbags for those women who hate handbags!
