I hate to admit it but it was not until our trip to New York City and looking at the pictures that I realized how unattractive a saggy Speedy looks. Why did it take so long? I have no idea. Looking back on the several pictures that were taken of me…I should have caught on long before. But better late than never right?
This picture was taken just hours after I purchased the purse.
Online this timeless beauty looks so classic and has a great shape. Yet once purchased, she (yes she!) starts to sag and look unappealing. You know it is a big deal when your husband even makes a comment about how ‘weird’ it looks. So this brings me to the point of this post: a base shaper. After doing quite a bit of research (Purse Forum is godsend), I discovered several different ways to maintain that chic and gorgeous shape of the Louis Vuitton Speedy. And after purchasing and trying out several different products and solutions, my favorite by far is the Purse Bling leather base shaper. I purchased mine off of Amazon. Since I have Prime, it arrived quicker than I thought and in perfect condition. The best part is that not only do they have the shapers for each color that the Speedy comes in, but they also have them for the Neverfull, Keepall, Delightful, and other Louis Vuitton purses that are notorious for sagging.

I love how my purse looks now and I firmly believe everyone owning these bags should purchase a base shaper. As a forewarning though, they do have some weight to them. As a result, I only keep the basics in my purse now. But it is worth it to be carrying around a great looking purse. The price is very reasonable and I could not be happier with my purchase.
