After SO many requests, I'm finally sharing a full SIZE comparison on my Louis Vuitton Nevderfull (MM & GM) & my Goyard PM tote.
I'm totally one of those people that love researching something before I purchase it - and I know if you are shopping for a tote, you may be confused on the sizing and what size is best for you. So, I'm going to give you a full comparison of the handbags including what all I can fit into them all and how they look on me!
***All outfit photos and purse content is linked at the end of the post.**
Lets get started!
First, its important to take note that I am kind of tall - I am almost 5'7 (because of this I feel tend to wear larger bags!) Also, I have wider set hips so bigger bags just don't intimidate me. For size reference I wear size 2 on top and size 4 in bottoms.
So the next 3 photos are me carrying each handbag on my should and on my arm! (they were all almost empty for these shots.)
^GM (largest size)
^MM (medium size)
^PM (this is Goyards smaller size)
Secondly, I'm sharing what all I can fit into each bag. (This is not what I carry each day - I just wanted a way to show what can fit since you probably are familiar with these items.)
First up is my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM in Damier Azur.
Out of the 3, I carry this one the most. I can fit SO much into it! In this case, I packed my 13" Macbook Pro (not my little gold one), a cosmetic bag completely full of makeup, full size Prada wallet, iPad mini, denim jacket, scarf, camera, LV cosmetic bag full of lipstick, keychain, Emily Griffin's new book (SO good!), Karen Walker sunglasses w/ case (these cases are HUGE) & my cardholder. I've been traveling with this one for ab 2 mos now and even when it is full, it still fits under the plane seats nicely.
All of these items fit nicely and I could've throw more on top if I were desperate or traveling. This 13' laptop is pretty heavy as well as my makeup bag so I hate to push the limits on the straps but I think the Neverful gets prettier the more you wear it.
Second is my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM in Damier Ebene.
The first Neverful I ever purchased was the MM and I loved it so much that I thought I'd never do anything but the MM. In general, I think the MM is the best for most women - unless you are a serious traveler (or an overpacked like moi..) Really, if you are petite, average, or taller - the MM will look great... I do think my GM is a little big for me but I love it for functional reasons. Also, if you tighten in the straps, it makes it look quite a bit smaller. I
In this bag, I eliminated the makeup bag, denim jacket, & scarf.
^the bag is full of those items in this photo - you can see there's room for more!
Lastly is this Goyard Chevron St. Louis PM in black.
This is the smallest tote I've ever carried, but honestly, I really, really like it. It doesn't hold quite as much as the other two but it's not TOO small. You can definitely size up to the medium if you are wanting for it to hold more!
If you are looking to save some money - try buying a look-a-like like THIS one or one with the same size & shape like THIS one. OR, buy it used - I'm linking some options below that are currently available.
Book is a new one by Emily Griffin 'first comes love'- it will be on shelves at the end of this month.
Tank (these are the bomb!)
