You can take the measurements of your travel bag, shopping bag, tote, shoulder bag or accessory, by measuring the zipper (for length), the distance from the base of the bag and the upper opening of the bag (for height) and the base diameter (for bottom), as follows :

Length = measurement of the zipper
Height = measurement between the base of the bag and the top of the bag (excluding the handles or straps)
Bottom Width = measurement of the base of the bag
