Question about rectangular mini structure

Hi all,

I live too far from a Chanel boutique to try anything on, so I’m hoping you can help. I’m on the waiting list for a black rectangular mini, and I’m wondering if it’s normal for the sides to pooch out a bit (for lack of a more elegant phrase)?

I’ve seen several where the sides look more vertical in a true rectangular shape and several where the sides are visible/come out even when looking at the bag straight on.

I’m wondering if this is a known issue with certain collections, or it has to do with how much you put in the bag, etc. I’ve attached screenshots of 2 bags that were unboxed on YouTube videos (both brand new—first 2 are of the one with sides that don’t protrude and the last one is one that does protrude).

Thank you!

Some Chanel bags will have less structure on the side than others even if they are new. Since they are all made by hand and by different craftsmen some will be better made than others. Hopefully you will find one you like, I've have to pass on a few bags due to lack of structure or flaws. Good luck !
