Birkin 30 capacity Vs. Speedy 30

  1. For those of you who have both an LV Speedy 30 and are lucky to have a Birkin 30, how does the capacity compare between the two?

    I have a Speedy 30 and it totally holds my life.
    Still wondering what sie Birkin to shoot for... :smile:

    Thanks in advance!
     
  2. I had a speedy 30 at one point (I do have the smaller one now) and felt it was too big for me.....plus I never cared for the smaller opening getting in and out of the speedy bags! I'm thinking the 30 birkin may hold slightly less? I may be wrong but because it's not "round" per se, as the speedy is.....In addition, I will add that the 30 birkin was a bit smaller than what I thought it would be! How tall are you?:amuse:
     
  3. So true!! The 30cm would look good on someone 5'4" or shorter, IMHO.
     
  4. I have the Speedy 30 and the Birkin 35 and I put into them the same things; I don't know how they would fit into a Birkin 30, it seems less roomy than the Speedy but I've never tried it...:smile:
     
  5. Jehaga, is yours a 30? How tall are you?
     
  6. Thanks! I'm 5'3" so either the 30 or 35 would be fine for me. I figured the Birkin 30 might hold slightly less because it isn't as "fat."

    Jehaga, how's the weight of the Epsom BJ Birkin you just got?
     
  7. ^^Shoes319: It's a 35, and I'm 5'7". The 30 was really small IRL

    ^Greentea: I think it's slightly lighter than my paddy. I'm not putting too much stuff in it. I just got my first scratch today :sad: on the inside :sad:
    Greentea, I think you're the one who posted that Epsom is not very scratch resistant. I wished I'd read your post sooner!!
     
  8. Greentea: the 30cm is pretty close to the size of the medium GP, if that helps any. Your Trim is cool!
     
  9. I'm 5'2" and the 30 cm is just perfect for me -- for some reason I thought it would be larger but I'm glad it's not, especially in the potiron color! :love:
     
  10. Ouch. :sad:
    Don't stress too much. The scratches give it character. I keep looking at your avatar because it's such a bee-yoo-ti-ful bag!
     
  11. Thank you! I love it! :smile:

    Maybe I should shoot for a 35, but in Chevre.
     
  12. I've read so much good stuff about the chevre in this forum, particularly that "spine" feature. I wish I could see a Chevre IRL! But I'll just have to see pictures of yours when you get it!!
     
  13. i have a 30 speedy and for some odd reason i cant carry this bag for more than 2 days or else my arm gets really sore. but the birkin 35 that i own in my own opinion is heavier but it doesnt hurt my arms. so i Know that brikins are a better purse for me :okay:
     
  14. I think the speedy 30 would hold a lot more because it has a lot more depth to it and is less structured.
     
  15. It's all in what you get used to. I'm 5'7". I own a couple of 35s a JPG a 30 and I'm waiting on another 30. (And am ordering a 30 at podium) I prefer different sizes in different colors.
