    Default Question about MAB's and MAM's?

    I'm not sure if this was already covered in another thread, so I apologize ahead of time if it was.

    I was wondering, what's the difference in size between a MAM and a MAB, IRL? I've taken a tape measure and tried to picture it (no, I've never seen neither IRL ), but it's not the same as when it's physically in your hands, KWIM?

    Is there a big difference between the two?

    TIA!

    Here's the difference... The MAM measures: 12.5" x 7.5" x 7.5" with a 6" drop & the MAB measures: 14" x 8" x 8.5" with a 6.5" drop. It's a difference, but I wouldn't say a big one. HTH.

    IMO, the MAM is the perfect size. I had 2 MABs and they were too large. Yes, I LOVE big bags but the MAB was too boxy to be that large. I hope that makes sense.

    Here is a thread for reference to the MAB: My new Rebecca Minkoff MAB! post #25.

    Here is a thread for the MAM: pictures of the Rebecca Minkoff mini in seagreen post #18.

    I agree with Zombiegirl, the MAM is the perfect size. I tried both of them on, and the MAB was just too big for me. I have a MAM and I love it!

    I think the "mini" throws people off, it's actually not mini at all! I'm 5'5" and I typically carry larger bags and the mini has plenty of room. The MAB is nice too, but IMO it serves another purpose - less of an everyday bag and more something you use when you have a lot to carry.

    One suggestion, if you can't try them on or see them IRL at a boutique near you, is to order from a site that has great customer service (like Luna Boston) - you could order both sizes, see what works for you, and send the other one back.

    So an inch and a half x an inch x a half inch really makes a big difference?

    (14 x 8.5 x 8 compared to 12.5 x 7.5 x 7.5 by vuittongirlxoxo's measurements)
