    Default A newbie to the forum and LV needs desperate help!

    Hi everyone! I just discovered this forum in my desperate attempt to come to a decision. I know it probably sounds so serious when it's only about purchasing a bag but i know fellow bag lovers will understand. I have never owned an LV and for Mother's Day and my birthday, DH is buying me my first one! I thought I'd already made up my mind on getting a Totally PM but now that I'm almost ready to purchase online, I'm having doubts. Please help me decide. Here are some factors that might help. I'm looking to buy an LV that can be used for everday. I'm a stay at home mom with two teenage kids. I'm only 4'11" with short torso, 95 lbs so I cannot rock big bags, I really look silly and have returned many a big bags from other brands after trying them on. I prefer shoulder bags to handheld ones. I also like bags that can be carried close to the body, not those with very wide bottoms that cause the bag to stick out (like a bucket). The only thing I'm pretty sure of is I want an LV mono.

    I have looked at a lot of websites and forums, even watched Youtube reviews of different LV bags. I briefly considered the Neverfull PM but am afraid of the lack of zipper closure. But now I'm considering it again. Would anyone know which is smaller between the Totally PM and the Neverfull PM? I'm not sure if the website measurements measure from the bottom or the top.

    Thanks for your patience and hope I hear from you!

    Out of the two, Neverfull PM and Totally PM, I would go with the Totally PM because it has a zipper and the extra outside pockets.

    I have a Neverfull GM and I LOVE it but then again I love big bags!!

    I think for your every day needs, the Totally will work better for you. The Neverfull PM is about an inch smaller top to bottom, and there really isn't a lot of room in the bag. It's very small, and even though you are tiny, I think it will still look pretty small. The Totally PM is bigger and I think you're getting more bag. It is $200 more, but I think it's worth it. There are pockets on the sides so you can utilize those, as well as the zipper you were wanting to close it.

    I hope this helped! And welcome!!

    I'd go for the Totally over the Neverfull. Neverfull lacks the zipper top and the Totally is more sturdy overall.

    Keep us updated on your decision!

    I have always like the Neverfull better than the Totally. But if you want a zipper, then I would say the Totally then.

    I'm not a LV expert but I like the look of the Totally PM better and I think it's a good thing that it has the zipper closure. Plus the pockets are a great thing! Can I just say I'm drooling and totally jealous. :) Welcome BTW!!

    I've been scouring the internet today hoping to find more modelign pics of the totally PM. I think I will go with the totally PM. The zipper closure is a big factor for me and I really like how it looks. I'll probably be ordering online tomorrow. Hope this bag works for me! Thanks everyone! I'll post pics when I get it.
