We have 65 buckle carriers available for postal hire and many brands feature the ability to cross shoulder straps. However, its easy to do the straps up in a way that makes it uncomfy.
When crossing shoulder straps – top tip – do it like this:
1) throw shoulder strap over your shoulder
2) use other hand to pull the shoulder strap DOWN towards floor
3) buckle shoulder strap in
4) repeat for other shoulder strap
If you simply pull the shoulder strap diagonally across your back you will end up with the strap on your neck which could be painful after a while.
You should aim for the shoulder strap to sit in the middle of your shoulder and the cross at the back to be roughly at your shoulder blades or bra strap level.
Hope that helps!
