Help! I'm going to get my first Birkin, I saw an 30cm orange birkin with gold today, I LOVE IT. But do you think it's a bit small with a big body if I use it with jeans?
I know 35cm looks better on jeans. (But gotta wait for more colors)
(will be 5'10 with heels)

Any thoughts?
Thanks! :smile:

35cm..........it's a little too large for me....I'm 5'4", and I carry a 30cm.....but if you're 5'7".......it would be perfect!

35. Otherwise the 30 may look more like a handbag on you rather than a tote....

I went for the 35 when I got my Kelly. I was presented with every size up to a 40. The 40 was too brief case looking and the 35 was just perfect. I am 5'6". Wait for the right size and you will know it! Ooh, orange. Lucky you.

Another vote for 35cm if your using your bag as a tote/day bag. A 30cm would work more as a handbag on tall girls.
