I have the Vertical and it's one of my favorites. So easy to use - I dump everything in it and still looks good. It's definitely one of my best buys ever!

I tried on both at the LV store, and I preferred the Horizontal because A) I just liked the shape more, and B) the wider top allowed for easier access to the contents. Both are lovely though, IMO.

i've got the vertical... i prefer the shape of it when it's on me... don't quite like the horizontal one coz it sticks out at my side a bit too much... =) besides, i don't like the feeling of having TOO easy acess to my bag (pickpockets) =/ although i do agree that it's a perk when u're shopping or need to answer a call. but then again... they're both not zippered, so... it's pretty easy anyways.

I think it might depend on your body type... My friend is really thin--she's like a size 2-4. On her, the vertical looks great--she looks long and lean. The horizontal looked a little too "casual"--like she was just using a totebag. Whereas on me (size 14), the vertical looked too small and odd. The horizontal looked really good and sophisticated.

thank you so much for all those who replied. would really appreciate it if you can also give a little input on why you prefer it than the other.

Horizontal.
The horizontal has a bigger bottom, I prefer the way my things "fall" into it. It's harder for me to find things is a narrower more upright bag - things seem to stack up more in it.

ita! i got the vertical because when i wore the horizontal it was twice the width of my body. vertical looked better because my body is very thin; horizontal looked like a diaper bag on me.

you have to try them on to know which is right for you.
