If you ever owned a fanny pack in your lifetime you’re either proud or uncomfortable in admitting that the hands free solution to your most important essentials is in fact quite handy. Perhaps the majority of all fanny packs out there don’t win as the most attractive accessories in your closet, but change has come through the design creations of By Malene Birger.
It’s the ultra modern version of the infamous fanny pack; meet the Tummy Waist Bag. Judging from the name alone, I wasn’t too convinced that the Tummy Waist Bag sounded any more polished than the fanny pack. Upon discovering what the Tummy Waist had to offer, it’s quite the piece. At a glimpse, it resembles the mother creation of the fanny pack. It bears the cylindrical slouchy silhouette and an accessible leather strap.
The term “tummy” derives from the means to carry this accessory. Rather than at the waist, this contemporary fanny is made to be carried at the upper level of your torso. Of course, if you’d rather have it hanging at the lower hips, the adjustable strap should provide you with that liberation. Once you decide that the torso bag isn’t working for you anymore, simply turn the straps over for a classic single strapped shoulder bag look.
