How do you carry yours? I'm getting one for my birthday & wondered how people carry it? It looks a bit low down if I hold it in my hand & doesn't feel comfy over my shoulder. Do you wear it over your arm like the Queen? Help please.
I only really use mine when it's warm enough to wear no coat or at least just a thin mac, as I can't fit it over my shoulder when wearing a thick coat and hate carrying it like a briefcase or in the manner of the queen.
Thank you. I get it next month so I'll be in a coat for a long time. I've just been googling it & Claudia, Kate & co seem to be going for the Queen look! In reality, it'll probably be hanging from my son's pushchair!
Are you better at not filling it with crap vital items than I am, Pagwatch? It's heavy when empty but by the time I've got all my stuff in it, it weighs a flippin' tonne and is uncomfortable carried like that. I have always assumed the celebrities seen carrying it like that are being followed by someone carrying another bag with all their actual stuff in it!
don't they do one with a shoulder strap now? the bayswater satchel or something? Why not try that one instead.I can also wear mine on my shoulder with a coat, but it does get a bit heavy, and you have to kind of slip it halfway down your arm to reach inside.
I always thought I was freakishly strong until DH bought me Bayswater! By the time I've stuck in a water bottle and some work on top of actual necessary crap, it feels like I'm going on holiday for a month!
If the Bayswater doesnt suit you, dont buy it!!! I spend all my working days talking to people about which handbag's best for them, so why on earth have a handbag that you already know has straps that dont suit how you like to wear a bag? If you must have the Bayswater wear it in the crock of your arm, as this is also the most showy way to hold a bag! Especially if you are very proud of it! And i would be if i had a Mulberry!
I am reading this a little I would love a Bayswater but can't justify atm because I need a big changing bag. Did treat myself to an Anthony yesterday though - no hands required so I can still child-wrangle
