I am soooo bummed today. I bought a GORGEOUS reissue 2.55 in black/gold for a great price but I can't fit all my stuff in it, for some reason I thought it'd be larger :crybaby:

If I decided to get the *jumbo* instead, would that make a big difference? Is there a place where I can see the diff in size between jumbo and medium? I want to make sure before I decide to sell the reissue that I can get a larger size replacement. I LOVE :heart: the style/color/everything about the reissue but this one is just too teeny for me to use :sad:

Thanks girls!

Smooth it's 9.5 x 7 x 2 which I think is the medium? The one I want to get measures 12.25 x 9 x 2.5. Is that the jumbo or large reissue?

Sorry to hear the small/medium size didn't work out...but it sounds like there are a lot of size options left for you! I'm sure you'll find the perfect size for you...good luck!!!!!! Post pics when you do finally get the keeper!

thanks girls! Smooth I was going by this which I found in the Chanel reference thread:

There are four sizes in the Reissue 2.55:
A302224 - The Baby ?
A302225 - The Medium 9.75" x 7.06" x 2.16"
A302226 - The Large 11" x 8" x 2.5"
A302227 - The X-Large, Jumbo aka A-4 size 12.25" x 9.18" x 2.5"

Are these bags both showing the medium size? Maybe I should keep mine as it is a nice size smaller bag :graucho:

I actually LOOVE the small 2.55 size. I'm petite, so I like small bags. The 2.26 size is too big for me and looks really boxy. I want one in the classic Grey or Blue or Off white.. or all of them!!!! AAAAH. :drool:

Yes, those pictures look like they are the 225's. Hm...I would never have considered the 225 a medium or the 226 a large. There is also a size 228 and THAT one is considered the Jumbo (not the 227).
