    I would say the 35. It's not too big and not too small, and I think you can fit a lot in there. It depends on your height though, or how much you carry. The 30 is better for shorter people since it's such a structured bag, but if you carry a lot, then you would need a 35.

    Hi Malou

    The best size for a Birkin is the size that you most feel comfortable with although the 35 seems to be the most readily available size in Europe/US and the 30 more popular in Asia. The 40 is also becoming more common although some leathers (Togo/Clemence) can make the bag quite heavy.

    All the best in your decision!!


    Quite happy and content with H for now!

    Hi! I would think the 35 is the best size. For me though, the 40 is really heavy, I used to have one is togo and it isreally heavy, having small kids as well doesn't make it easier. I only have a 35 now and a 30 and I think these two are the perfect size.

    All the best on your decisions! :)

    Go into the boutique nearest you. Hopefully, they will have one for you to try out. I prefer 30cm Birkins, and I am 5'2". Good luck!

    Hi,
    For me I prefer 30cm, Birkin is rather heavy, 35cm is not as much bigger but with some leather such togo or clemence can be heavy after an hour. Don't forget not many way to carry a birkin. However its all up to you how you like the look if you prefer more of tote look go for 35, if you like more of hand bag look go for 30. Don't worry about space I can tell you 30 do fit alot more than you thought.

    The 35 cm one would be perfect, in my opinion. It looks lovely and not too much.

    Never go over a 35 for a birkin, a kelly is perfect at 32cm imo

    For evening you need to consider smaller bags - formal events a clutch or 25cm Kelly would be great! less formal you can get away with a 28Kelly

    I prefer 30cm Birkin's in size and weight. I'm only 5'4" and I think 35's look a bit large on me.
    I do believe that you can never go wrong with either 30 or 35, and 35 seems to be the most desirable as far as the secondary market goes, in my little corner of the world.
