Hi,

I am considering getting a sofia... ideally I would like to get the mini or small sizes, but I am getting it pre-owned as based on my understanding this model has been discontinued, and it's also cheaper. The most common size available pre-owned where I am is a medium but I have a very strong feeling it's going to be too big for me

I'm 5 ft 4 inches and fairly petite - usually 00P in Banana Republic. My hips are very narrow, so its easy for bags to dwarf me. The largest bag I've been able to carry would be the Polene No.1; it basically follows the outline of my hips lol. Even then I have to carry that on the crook of my arm and not slung over my shoulder.

Are there any petite sofia-owners out there who can comment on how it looks on them? Would love to be pleasantly surprised.

Jennifer Aniston is 5’5” and carry a medium or large. It depends on your need. My mom is your height and carry the small? As a purse small would be more proportionate and medium large are more like a “work tote.”

Small or medium is perfect for your size. The large Sofia is too big. I have a small and a medium and I am 5'4", normal size, and they are perfect. The small is cute and doesn't fit much, the medium is a nice handbag to carry even with the shoulder strap, not too heavy or overwhelming. Either size, it's a good choice for you. Hope you get one!

Thanks for the datapoint too! I guess I was looking more for a casual bag - just to fit my phone and wallet and small stuff. But am now re-evaluating if I would get the medium as a work bag as well
