Dr. Cannada shares the maximum recommended weight for a woman's purse.
You know, it’s going to depend on a lot of things. It’s going to depend if they have a long shoulder strap on their purse, how they are carrying it in relation to their body. Ideally the shoulder strap should be so that the purse goes down to your hip and it definitely should not be more than 10 pounds.
