Hi ladies I've just purchased my first Givenchy bag a medium Royal blue Antigona but I haven't used it yet because I'm unsure on the size I don't know if I should exchange for the small...... I'm 5ft 4 & don't wear heels unless I'm going out & even though I love big bags there usually softer like Balenciaga so they don't seem as big, I do carry a Birkin 35 & Celine Mini & have just recently bought a Phantom which is a big bag but again it quite soft.

I'd love to hear which size you all prefer. TIA:smile:

I just ordered the Antigona in the small size. I've not received it yet but I've tried it along with the medium in the shop and I think it suits me better. I'm about 5'5" and 125 pounds. I don't wear heels very often either. I generally prefer smaller bags as I don't carry that much and I think they look more elegant. There seems to be a better variety of colours available in the medium size though.

If u carry the b35, then u shouldnt have a prob w/ the med. However, if u are having doubts then you prbly dont love the sz. That cobalt blue is amazing tho. Im sure if u return it, someone will snatch it up quickly.

Thanks honey I think I love the width but it seems quite high, I'd only exchange for a small in the same colour..... I really love this blue :smile:

This has been my dilemma too! The small seems a too small for me (I'm 5'7") and the medium looks bulky on me unless I am strictly hand carrying it. I think if I were to get a medium, I would only do black or another dark color. I think bright colors make the bag seem even larger. I was trying on the medium at Nordstroms the other day and the SA pointed out that the Celine mini that I was carrying was even bigger than the antigona! Yet I don't have a problem with the mini. I think it has something to do with the antigona's width and structured look.

I know exactly what you mean I have the Celine Mini & I've just bought a small Phantom but the Antigona seems bulky :smile:

Funny enough, I was at Neiman yesterday debating on whether or not the medium was too big. I was carrying my Celine Mini at the time and although the Medium Antigona is smaller than I first thought, I think the small may be too small. I'm 5'3 120 and do wear heels a lot. I think it's up to you and how you feel you can carry the bag. I'm probably going for the medium myself.

Not sure yet. If you can believe it, I only have one black bag (outside of a clutch and small shoulder I rarely use) so I was thinking black. Although the black is so common, I thought the goat skin would be good to own because of its ability to take wear and tear. They had that light blue color which looked great--just afraid I wouldn't be able to use it as often. The bright orange with the brown flap was nice in person. The smooth calfskin is also a lovely material but the floor model already had scratches and I don't want to have to deal with babying this one. What to choose...

I was sent a pic of the orange with brown triangle but I wasn't sure so I might exchange my blue one for orange although I love the blue but I've just bought another blue Celine bag so 4 blue bags is too many :graucho:

I have been sitting on the fence because I can't decide on the size. The small is a bit too small but still bearable. The medium is too bulky and chunky for me. I am 5"5 so am not petite but I can't get my head around the medium, maybe because it's too structured.
