Chanel Classic - Small vs. Medium

2014-9-25 fashion

Quite possibly the most famous bag in the world, the Chanel 2.55 flap comes in an array of beautiful sizes, making it nearly impossible to pick only one.

From small to big:

mini Chanel bag

mini (6.5″ x 5″ x 2.5″) — discontinued

East West Chanel

east west (10″ x 5.5″ x 2″)– discontinued

small classic Chanel bag

small  (9″ x 5.5″ x 2″)

medium large double flap Chanel bag

medium/large (10″ x 6″ x 2.5″)

Jumbo chanel on body

jumbo (12″ x 8″ x 3″)

Chanel Maxi Supermodel

maxi (13″ x 9″ x 4″)

Out of all these sizes, the small and medium/large are the most similar and also the most classic in size and shape. Naturally, a common question is which bag should I get?

Here are a few pictures to help you decide. As you can see the proportions are very similar.

Both the medium/large and small can have double flaps. The detailing and features are pretty much the same except the size difference.

Obviously, by looking at them, the size difference is not very noticeable when worn. Our opinion is that if you tend to like bigger bags, stick with m/l. If you tend to like more petite purses, get the small. Either choice is absolutely gorgeous!
