However, for those who do not like this type of handbag, recommend choosing one that can be carried on the shoulder, with a wide handle, or two handles “rolled”, and change it by changing the shoulder throughout the day.

In addition, the person will have the habit of having unconsciously raised the shoulder uncharged and will adopt an incorrect posture to compensate for this imbalance.
