Generally, a well-stuffed wallet is a good thing (if we’re talking stuffed with cash). But an overstuffed wallet with numerous credit cards, business cards, membership cards, rewards cards, and receipts is a major back pocket fashion faux pas.
An overly large can stretch your pants pockets making them look droopy when you pull your wallet. No one wants a droopy butt. Additionally, a large wallet will add extra volume to your behind giving it an unflattering (dare we say fattening?) look. Finally, the back pocket is the favorite spot for pick-pockets and a larger wallet is a bigger target.
For those of you who can’t imaging going without everything in your wallet it can be helpful to take a second look. Of course, you need IDs, cash, and a credit/debit card or two. But when was the last time you had to used all of those other cards stuffed in your wallet? Never, right?
So, instead of packing everything into your poor wallet, slim it down by only carrying what you’ll need. If your wallet has been stretched out of shape by months of overfilling you may want to consider a sleek card case. It will easily hold the necessities like an ID, cash, and a credit card. Plus, they’re as flat as your smartphone and can easily go in your front pocket where it will be barely noticed by others (or pick-pockets).
