Why Ladies Buy Designer Bags?

​The main reason that many women buy a designer bag is because they can! You are looking for something that is certainly a bit more individual, and one that suits your own particular lifestyle. The good news is that there are plenty of options to pick from, and you will almost certainly be able to find one that matches into the kind of image that you want to project and maintain.

The good thing as far as diaper bags is concerned is that the range was wide, varied and of course distinctive high quality.

Designer Bag Features To Look Out For

​Easy To Clean or Have Cleaned

​If you are going to spend a lot of money on a high quality bag, then you want it to look good all of the time. Diaper bags get a lot of use and will always suffer from spills and stains. Make sure that the fabric you buy is easy to clean, and will hold its color. Some type of waterproof vinyl material is best, as it is strong and can be cleaned with a simple wipe. However make sure this is high quality vinyl as you do not want it to look like a cheap shiny plastic.

Straps and Handles

​Many of the cheaper bags come with thin shoulder or carrying straps. When a bag is fully loaded with all the baby essentials, it does get heavy. Carrying a bag like this that has thin straps will really dig into your shoulders and hands. So make sure the straps are wide and also very strong. If you can find one with straps that can be adjusted, then those are best as you can adjust them for comfort.

On many of the higher quality bags, these straps can be adjusted, so as your bag can be carried in different ways. This is ideal if you need to carry your bag like a messenger bag, or as a bag hooked over your stroller.

​Closure and Ease of Access

​This may seem obvious but is regularly overlooked. You want secure locking as you don't want any items falling out. At the same time you may need to get to the items inside the bag quickly, so you want a quick opening mechanism. My advice is to avoid velcro as an option at all times. Go for something like a solid magnetic clip, or a strong zipper made from metal. You are trying to get the magic combination of security and functionality and a magnetic closure is always best.

​Organization and Pockets

The more pockets and compartments you have for holding different items, then the easier it is to find items you need quickly. An insulated pocket for bottles is a great idea. A separate section for wet items is also a very good idea, and then a place to hold your own personal keys and mobiles securely is also really useful. In simple terms, the more pockets there are, the better. 

Designer Choices for Diaper Bags

​If you can tick all of the boxes above, then it comes down to your favorite design choice. If you include all of the important features I have listed above, then look for your own favorite designs. There are plenty of designer baby brands such as:

  • Kate Spade
  • Tim and Leslie
  • Babymel
  • Ju-Ju-Be
  • JP Lizzy
  • Tory Burch
  • Louis Vuitton
  • Coach
  • Rebecca Minkoff
  • Marc Jacobs
  • Michael Kor
  • Petunia Picklebottom
  • Storksak Elizabeth
  • Juicy Couture

Hopefully there is enough choice here to find one that you like. As I mentioned at the beginning designer diaper bags are not cheap, but if you want something as individual as you, then this is the sort of quality that you can get, and the price that you have to pay.
