  1. Hello everyone ;)

    I fell in love with the Ellipse recently and I have been saving up for a pre-loved one...

    Should I go for PM or MM??

    I am 5'6" and 145 lbs...

    Would PM too small or look funny on me??

    Will MM be bulky?? Instead of looking like a purse, would the MM look like a briefcase??

    I plan to use it as a everyday purse.

    Thanks so much for your suggestions!! :yahoo:
     
  2. Any suggestions, especially from the Ellipse owners, will be greatly appreciated!! =)
     
  3. I would say PM.
     
  4. Is PM too small for my height??

    5'6"...

    Thanks!!
     
  5. I'm taller and I think it looks fine on me. But you need to work out what's right for you - does the PM hold everything you need to carry? I find the MM far too large.
     

  6. Thank you for your response!!

    I carry quite much stuff...does the MM look too big on you?? Or, is it too large for your need??

    Thank you!! :smile:
     
  7. Personally...I like the MM size better.
    I am shorter than you (5'2").
    The PM doesn't fit enough to my liking.
    I carry lots of junk. :biggrin:

    Does it look bulky on you?? I like the MM more, but I don't want to look like I am carrying a briefcase instead of a purse :P

    THanks!!
     
  9. I just don't carry much; there's wasted space in a PM for me so an MM would be pointless! That doesn't really help you though.
     
  10. I´m 175 cm so about 5ft7" (??) and I have the MM and love it! It´s not too bulky or briefcase-like to me. It´s kind of having the Alma or Speedy 30 or 35 but having an easier access inside the bag. I don´t use mine every day because at work I need to carry A4 files. I take it around town during weekends and have been getting lots of compliments! It´s definately not a very common sight and people always give me curious looks. :yes:
     
  11. To Rikachan: Thanks for your sharing!! It's great to know that MM is practical as well due to its size~ :biggrin:

    I am also thinking to sell my Batignolles Horizontal for the Ellipse??

    What do you guys think??
    ;)
     
  12. Ellipse MM for sure! The PM is waaaay to small! I'm 5'3 and petite and the MM looks great!! The MM holds plenty AND keeps it's shape as it's a structured bag. Was my first LV! Absolutely adore it! Iv seen the PM carried by other taller ladies and I thought it looked a tad silly, as if they were carrying a childs bag... Not a good look IMHO!
     
  13. MM for sure. I'm 5'2" as well & it doesn't feel bulky at all. I wouldn't sell the BH for it though. You always need a shoulder bag.
     
  14. No MM doesn't feel or look bulky on me at all. It's the perfect size for my height and body shape.

    I agree.

    I agree with you also. ;)
     
  15. I'm 5'3 and I have the Ellipse PM and find it to be perfect. I don't find that it's too small or doesn't have enough room for what I carry. I carry essentials ( wallet, sunnies, phone, Clipa purse hook, brush, lipstick in Brighton leather lipstick case, gum, Brighton small leather zip case for grocery store shopping cards)) and it all fits just fine without being overstuffed.
