Purse Base Shaper 101

A purse base shaper has been around for some time. It is one of the essentials for protecting your favorite handbags from losing their shape. But, there are still some who are wondering if they should get one. Well, if you don’t want your favorite handbag to sag, stretch out or lose its shape when in use, it’s time for you to get one.

With so many sizes and options available, you might be wondering what base shaper to use. In this blog, we explore purse base shapers to help you determine what it really is for and help you decide whether it is the right accessory for you. 

What is a Purse Base Shaper?

A purse base shaper is a purse accessory that helps prevent your handbag from sagging by providing a base. Purse base shapers allow you to put heavier or lumpier items in your bag without stretching the bottom. Most base shapers are made of thick plastic with nice rounded edges to fit your bag. It also comes in a variety of widths, lengths, and colors.

Why Do You Need a Purse Base Shaper?

Base shapers provide a more aesthetic purpose and make your handbag more rigid and help them keep in shape when in use. Base shapers are designed to provide a solid base to your soft bottom handbags. Bags with a less structured base, foldable, and soft, such as duffles, totes, and hobos, are the bags that could benefit from base shapers. So if you want your designer bag to the last longer, use a base shaper to protect it.

When deciding if you need a purse base shaper, there are a few things you need to think about. First, think of the construction of your handbag. If your bag is structured, rigid, and holds its shape well when filled with items, you don’t need to use a purse base shaper. However, if your bag is soft and foldable and loses its shape when filled, you could benefit from the use of a purse base shaper.

What Material Should a Purse Base Shaper be Made of?

The most common materials used for purse base shapers are acrylic, leather, and microfiber. The solid acrylic material is the most popular due to its versatility and see-through feature. However, many purse base shaper users also preferred leather and microfiber materials because of their various color options.

One new material that is also being used nowadays is the vegan (faux) leather purse base shapers. These base shapers are lightweight, have rounded corners, and can provide the ultimate structure to your handbag. 

What Size of Purse Base Shaper Should You Use?

Almost all base shapers are sized to fit popular handbag models, but make sure that you pick the right size for your handbag. If a purse base shaper is too small, it won’t function the way it is intended to be. However, if it is too large, you risk unnecessary stress on the material of your handbag, which could lead to tearing or misshaping. If you cannot find the right size, there are several options that are customizable to fit your needs. To ensure that you are buying the right size for your handbag, simply measure the dimension of your bag and compare it to the dimension of the purse base shapers you want to buy. 

What is the Difference Between Purse Base Shaper and Purse Organizer?

Depending on your needs, you have the option to use a purse base shaper or purse organizer. Purse base shapers are designed to provide a solid base to soft bottom handbags, while purse organizers provide overall support, shape, and organization to handbags. Both can be used with one another, but purse organizers take up more handbag space. These accessories are both useful and protect your handbags.
