How to Prevent Your Designer Handbag from Sagging

Your designer handbag is an investment, so don't let a little bag sag destroy its glory. Although sometimes it is inevitable, especially if the bag is made with soft leather without a solid and hard base at the bottom. But don't worry, with proper care and the right handbag accessories, you can prevent your designer bag from sagging.

There are steps you can do to make sure that your favorite designer bag keeps its shape. Here, we take a look at the two simple steps you can do to prevent your designer handbag from sagging.

Stuff Your Handbag

When you're not using your designer handbag, don't just stack it on a shelf or hang it in your closet. Bags, especially those that are made of soft leather, tend to lie in a heap when empty. This can change the shape of your bag and create folds in the leather. 

To protect the shape of your handbag,stuff it with pillow inserts, bubble wraps, or non-perfumed white tissue paper. Then place it in a dust bag and store it on a shelf.

Don't Bottom-Out Your Handbag

Having a saggy bottom after a bit of use is one of the common complaints we often hear from designer bag lovers. To prevent this from happening to your designer bag, do not carry too heavy things for longer than necessary. If this is not a possibility,use a purse base shaper to protect your designer handbag.

A purse base shaper is a plastic liner that allows you to put heavier or lumpier items into your bag without stretching the bottom. Base shapers are designed to fit comfortably at the bottom of your bag to help support and give it a straight line, no matter how much you put in it. 

You can purchase high-quality purse base shapers from Purse Bling. We have base shapers that perfectly fit with most designer handbags. Our base shapers are designed to fit comfortably at the bottom of your bag to help support it and give it a straight line no matter how much you put in it. Our custom-fit base shapers fit most designer bags, including the LV Speedy, LV Neverfull, LV Montorgueil, Longchamp Le Pliage, and more. 

Many base shapers are sold in the market, but not all are made the same. Some are light while others are heavy, and some are made with stiff materials that may damage the internal corners of your designer handbags over time. Purse Bling'sVegan Leather Handbag Base Shapers are double-sided, lightweight, have rounded corners, and provide the ultimate structure of your bag to avoid possible wear and tear.

Install Your Base Shapers Correctly 

The success of using base shapers to maintain the shape of your designer handbags depends on the fit. So make sure to install the shaper correctly by pressing it deep into the bottom of your bag so that it will lay completely flat and touch the inside corners of your bag. When installed correctly, the saggy bottom of your handbag will transform from sloppy to sophisticated.
