I'm with D*Alex. Rack and pannier/rack trunk on my commuter. When I ride my road bike, I use a small backpack to carry a minimal amount of stuff.

That said you could try taking up some of the length with a couple of large safety pins or big rubber band just to see if that does any good. Many swear by messenger bags. A good one should have a torso strap and properly designed shoulder strap to keep it where you want it.
