Help... speedy 30 bandouliere too big?

  1. Hello everyone
    I am keen to purchase the speedy 30 bandouliere that I would like to use as an everyday bag and for the most part wear it cross body. However, I am 5ft 2inches and wear about a size 6 (US size) or size 10 (UK size)... quite petite!
    Having read many threads about this most people say that this would be just too big for my frame cross body however I quite like the relaxed saggy look!

    Any thoughts or modelling shots of someone who likes this size crossbody ?

    Thanks in advance x
     
  2. Do you carry a lot everyday?
    Bear in mind that a lot of people complain about the small opening of 25 and with a 30 I can understand why.

    I’m similar to your frame and wear size 0-2 US. I have a 30 but I don’t wear it crossbody. Glad that I’ve picked this size over 25 as I need the space!

  4. I'm 5'2" and about 115 lbs. I love my 30! I sold my 25 because it was too small. And I only wear mine crossbody:smile: Pics below!

  5. Thanks for these pictures! Looks really good on you and you are quite a bit slimmer than me! I do think it would suit me better for an everyday bag!

  7. Hi
    I don’t carry a lot on an average day. However I have young children so on days out at the weekend I would be more likely to take a few extra bits and pieces as we are just about out of a baby change bag. Also, if I was to go out for longer periods I like to take with me a book, water bottle, iPod etc.... so I am thinking the 30 would suit better. Thanks for your thoughts.
     
  8. I was going through this same dilemma a few months ago. I ended up going with the 25 because in my opinion 30 was a bit overwhelming to wear crossbody on my body frame (I’m size 0-2 and 5’1 1/2 on good days lol). Also, I normally don’t carry a lot of things in my bag so 25 is more than enough for me. But it all comes down to what your needs are: Do you need more space? Do you prefer a bigger opening? Etc. :smile:
     
  9. I say carry what you feel comfortable with no matter what your size. Something that I think works for me may not work for you. You have to go with your gut.

    By the way I have a 30B and 5'2 and a size 6/8 and it works for me.
     
  10. I am legit the same measurements as you and I got the Speedy B 30. I carry it mostly handheld. In the pictures, I have the 25 and 30 side-by-side and then the 30B worn crossbody.

    I hope this helps! 20170926_154504.jpg 20180112_220853.jpg

  11. I think the 30 is the perfect size ! Although the 25 is cute I find it small for an everyday fav . I have the 35 and it’s big but smaller when worn because it doesn’t keep its shape so I enjoy it because I can fit everything in that bag ! The 30 is a great medium bag not to small not to big .. perfect size
     
  12. I use the 25b for everyday and the 30b for travel because I need to carry extra items. They're both great sizes, just get the one that carries your stuff, happy shopping!
     
  13. Aw, thanks! :smile:
     
  14. I would suggest going with what you like. After all you are the one who will carry this bag and should be happy.

    I have a Speedy B 30 and wear it with the shoulder strap most of the time. Sometimes I wonder why I did not choose the 25 but then the next time I use my 30, I am happy I got this size:
    1. I tend to carry a tad more in winter time (or in general ) and want to be able to fit my scarf inside whenever I decide it gets to hot. The Speedy is my main bad wether / winter bag.
    2. I am only able to fit my planner and cosmetic pouch GM due to the bigger opening.

    Good luck with your decision! The Speedy is a great choice.
     
  15. I have a speedy DE 25 and i use it as my weekend bag. I always wear it on the shoulder strap, i am 5'8 and it looks perfect. The opening is a bit small though. I went to the store just last week as i want to get another speedy in azur. I was planning to get the 30 but after some comparisons the 30 does look rather bulky on me. Mind you i use neverfulls as everyday bags so 30 might be the right choice for you.
