What happens to your body when your purse is too heavy
We have all been culprits when it comes to the crime of carrying too heavy a purse. We love our giant totes and being able to accommodate all our essentials. We've been taught that it's always better to be prepared, so it seems only right to pack our purses to the brim — just in case. So what if we carry around those heavy bags for a few hours here or there. It couldn't have that much of an effect on our bodies, right? Wrong.
Several studies show just how much our fabulous purses can affect our day-to-day lives. According to the London Express (via CBS News), although it's trouble, it's also quite the trend. Some medics have called the condition "poshitis," named after Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham who has often been seen rocking a large tote bag. We'd all love to think we have Posh Spice's style and the Mary Poppins' mystery bag that can fit every item and barely weigh a thing, but that concept is straight out of the movies.
Let's take a look at just what really happens to your body when your purse is too heavy, as well as a few tips and tricks to avoid those pesky purse problems in the future.
