Bendy mirror?

Confused about Bal mirrors...

I've read that bags with mirrors capable of bending are not real, however, my Bal mirror does bend slightly...

Does this mean that it is a fake? What are the mirrors made out of?

Thanks in advance!

You can bend the authentic ones slightly. It should be very obvious when one bends too much though. If you can make it look like the letter C, then it's fake. The real ones won't bend more than 5 degrees or so.
 
Yes, I've had two Giant City bags and still have one now, both were purchased direct from Balenciaga.co.uk and both had a slight flex to the mirrors but not much. I'm guessing because the mirrors are designed to be carried, so can't be rigid because they would break easier. Some people also leave the mirror dangling out of the bag so it needs to have some give in it.
