These Are The 4 Best Handbags For Plus Size Bodies

Chanel Classic Flap Maxi

Chanel Classic Flap Maxi Plus Size

There’s a lot to discuss when it comes to the practical realities of spending $5,000 on a handbag, most of which I won’t discuss here (and seven years later, this same bag costs much more at retail), but I will say that I have never once regretted purchasing my Chanel Classic Flap in the Maxi size.

Frankly, I struggle to fit the essentials into my Chanel, and that includes a wallet (which could be downsized, but for the purposes of this conversation let’s assume is a full-size zip wallet), modest makeup bag, phone, sunglasses, portable charger, and charging cable. Adding any item outside of that becomes a game of Tetris that I frequently lose.

From a proportion perspective, I feel like the Maxi was also the right choice for my height and size. It fits well underneath my arm and on my lap. At the longest length, I can’t wear this bag crossbody, but I never expected to. I usually carry it on the longest length, especially during the colder months, and reserve the shorter double strap for crowded environments.
