I had to change the type of purse I would normally carry, in order to keep the weight to something reasonable...
I had exactly the same problem. I developed back problems from something - not even sure how. But when I brought my purse into the Physical Therapist appointment and she picked it up, she told me I'll need to get rid of that weight - and I didn't have my gun in it at the time! I have since tried to quit carrying a purse altogether, or at least minimize the weight when I need to. Regardless, my gun doesn't go in the purse.

...and to lpo, the longish strap over the head and opposite shoulder is probably the most secure way - but an older lady last year here in Florida, who had her purse seemingly well-secured, was knocked down and dragged several feet - trying to hang on presumably. She later died from the head injury. Bad guys have nothing to lose and don't consider the consequences of their actions. Remember... violent and swift!
