Hey all! I got a jumbo beige clair caviar with ghw recently and i absolutely love it! however, i feel self-conscious that it might look too big on me. i'm 5'1, 100 lbs. any of you petite ladies rock a jumbo bag and don't think it's overwhelming? i will post a mod picture when i get access to a full-length mirror (in the middle of packing things up at the moment).

Second this! Originally I wanted to get m/l classic flap, but its really hard to find GHW caviar here in Aus so I end up getting jumbo instead and i love the size! Just need convincing that it will not look too big on petite frame :smile: I'm 5'2 and 115 lbs.

I think it’s way too big and looks like a person is trying to scream Chanel. If that’s what you are after “Look at me, I am wearing a huge Chanel”, then that’s the look.

But if you are after “look at me and my elegant Chanel” , then a M/L is the one to buy.

Plus, as the above poster stated, it’s a heavy bag on top of being huge.

For me, it’s a no and I have tried to love that size many times but everytime I look in the mirror, I have to convince myself it looks great on me, so then I know it doesn’t work.

Just my two cents.

I don't think every Jumbo lover here wants to convey that "look at me and my huge Chanel" look. It's all a matter of preference. Some women like big bags and some prefer small. I'm sure show-off's exist too but I don't think most of us feel that way.

Yes I think most people find the jumbo size is more practical as we can fit a lot more compare to m/l. For that high price we need to pay I personally think if I need to choose, its better to get the bag that I can get more use of. Nothing to do with showing off.

I respect your opinion... but I do not agree with this at all... for me it is a matter of what I carry on a daily basis. The M/L is simply too small for my daily essentials.
