Hello! I highly recommend the 25 Bandoliere. It truly is the perfect style and size - thanks to Audrey Hepburn! The 25 B's strap also makes it so versatile. You can wear it 4 ways - hand, crossbody, shoulder (long) or shoulder high (upper arm/shoulder). My only disappointment is that it is not as structured as I thought it would be. An idea when deciding - since you don't live close to a store: Sometimes mapping out the dimensions on paper helps me "see" a handbag's size. I measure and note the length and width on one sheet and hold up another sheet for the height. That has spared me from many an unhappy purchase (and returns). Good luck!Good Morning,
I am deciding between a Speedy 25 or 30 Bandoliere for my height of 5'0". Would you please provide your recommendation and reason? I am too far from any LV store to be able to try on. Thank you!
thanks for replying. will search. i actually wanted to be able to carry a book while travelling hence decided upon 30. 25 looked definately better on shoulder.I am no expert, but from what I read on here and heard, Speedy B25 tends to look better on smaller frames. it also tends to slouch less from what I hear than the 30. Maybe that's something to search around the forum for? Something like "Speedy slouching" did the trick if I remember correctly.
will chk that out. ThanksThe 25! I'm 5'6 and have two 25's one in DE and one in Mono. If you're wrong worried about the shape just use an organizer. I bought one from Original Club, it's a very soft felt. It keeps the bags shape perfectly. The 30 on me was huge even at my height.
i am too much in love with my speedy to change it. i am also pretty convinced with the size i got as it perfectly fits my needs. i wanted to use it as an everyday bag and escape the hassle of changing bags when travelling. also, i have always carried large bags. an organizer suggested in this thread seems like a great idea.i'm 5ft also and bought the 30.. found it too big so sold it and bought a speedy b 25 and couldnt be happier
