Good question! I'm 5.9" and very thin, and when I tried on what the SA "said" was a Birkin 30, it looked too small. However, it was SO small that after seeing pics of other tall women with 30's I believe what they showed me was smaller than a 30 (25?). In any case, I'd love to try a 30 so that I have a "going out in the evening/casual when I don't want to carry a Kelly" Birkin since I think the 35 is too big for that (but perfect otherwise). So I'm curious to see what others think....Mizzle's thread about petite women and 35s got me wondering. Are there tall women who prefer to carry the 30?
