Ok. I'm a newbie.. YAY. This is my first "post" i guess you call it. Anyways, I'm wanting to buy my first LV bag and I can't decide between a Speedy 35 or 40. I'm a large purse girl, and the purse I am carrying right now is the Dooney and Bourke Medium Doodle Duffle, which is 15.5" long. I'm leaning more towards the 40, but everyone says its HUGE [even though i love big purses]. When you carry the speedy purses, do they stretch out over time? Ahh I can't decide. Can you all help me please? Thanks!!
