Handbags are commonly used as daily essentials for women to store belongings including wallets, umbrella, makeup, keys, etc. Occasionally, it is of vital importance for women to know how to measure the size of a handbag, to see how many of their stuffs can be filled inside or to compare how the size of a new handbag with the old one.
