    Default Bag Size: Small vs Big

    Let's talk about bag size. I've heard people say that bigger bags look silly on shorter/petite women while small bags look odd on taller/bigger purse carriers. I guess I kinda see it though I kinda don't . I'm really curious to know what you ladies think about this.

    Also, is there anyone that just prefers bigger bags because they 'look' better? Or do you base the size of the bags you buy only on how much you carry?

    Thoughts? Comments?

    You know me... I'm a little bag person all the way. Plus I am tall too, so what does that tell you?
    Let's see... I guess the reason I don't carry a large bag around is because I really don't have enough stuff to fill it. I don't like lugging a whole bunch of junk around with me... that would kill my shoulder and make we feel lopsided. What do I normally carry? Wallet, coin purse, cell phone, keys, pill box, and maybe some lipstick or lip balm. I've had terrible experiences with carrying makeup around with me. You know what happens to lipstick when its really hot out? LOL! I guess I have just learned not to bother with stuff like that anymore unless I'm going out somewhere special and think I'll need it.

    It depends on what I carry. But I do own mostly larger bags. I think if someone is like, REALLY short then maybe a huge bag would look weird on someone. Smaller bags look alright on taller people if they're not 6'2'' lol. I'm 5'7'' and I've carried bags that were like 8x5 and I think they look fine. I used to think big bags looked TOO big on me since I'm skinny.

    I am 5'4... and a medium size girl, i'm not tooo skinny, and i'm not big either, (check out my profile pic. ) ... anyways, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Big Bags!!!! Even if I am not carrying lots of stuff with me, I still carry a large size bag...

    On a daily basis, I carry my wallet, pouchette with makeup (I recently converted my pouchette into a makeup bag, permenantly), keys, cell, and sunglasses case...

    My smallest bag right now would be my MC Trouville... that's why poor trouville just sits in her dustbag most of the time...

    I can't wait to get my Lockit! The L. Horizontal is HUUUGE!!! But just the way I like em'!!!

    for me its a total toss up, all depending on my mood and what I'm carrying. I go through phases of liking small bags and large bags, I've been in a small bag phase for quite a while now, with my small botkier trigger being the largest bag I've carried in months, I'd say since November. I'm 5'1" so big bags can tend to look a bit crazy on me. And unless its a tote I'd rather them be structured and have a good amount of compartments because i HATE digging around.

    right now my little stam is bursting at the seems because I am carrying wayyyyyyy too much for it. It just randomly 'pops' open, noise and all, as i pick it up and walk, my boyfriend laughs at me and at dinner tonight says, so I'm assuming you want a new purse for your birthday...nailed it on the head! I think I need to find my botkier friend for a bit, and give my stam a break.

    I am 5'10" and quite skinny. Small bags look a little bit silly on me. I used to have only medium size bags, because I don't carry much stuff (wallet, organiser, small makeup bag and a tiny, extra-light foldable umbrella), but when I am out I almost always buy something (magazine, makeup, T-shirt, whatever....) and even if it was a little thing I could not carry it in my bag, because it was too small to accommodate extra-stuff.

    So, to avoid the problem of having to carry around plastic bags (yuk) or any of those horrible, foldable nylon bags (so "old lady") now I prefer to carry large bags which can fit any purchase I make during the day.

    In my opinion, what look really silly is women with a tiny handbags who carry other bags because they don't have enough space to fit all their stuff in their main purse. I just see so many around with a tiny shoulder bag and then a large, ugly carrier of some sort with extra-stuff. I know that many ladies like foldable (such as Longchamp) but I truly detest them.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that when I ask a SA to keep the shopping bag because I will just put it in my bag, they look at me like I am smoking crack or something.:rolleyes:

    before i am used to carrying huge bags back in the Philippines (i used to be a model) and then when i moved here in the states, i started using small bags, them medium, then big, but now it depends. i now usually wear medium-big bags and especially if they're lightweight.

    I am a short girl. (5'2) I live in three inch heels or higher- mostly higher. I love BIG, I live in Texas where big is always better. I have big shades, big rings and big handbags from mostly all designers. I think smaller bags are great for evening. Big bags just look more Hollywood to me and thats normally the look I want to pull off on the days that I am wearing a large bag.
    When I am opting for a more conservative look I will normally have a medium bag with little or no logo.
    Happy Shopping!

    I am 5'1", I like big bags, but not very big, they do look weird on my size, I think the Speedy30 size is perfect for me., I try to stick to that size.
