I don't mind the sag.
But I put a piece of cardboard in the bottom if my speedy is kind of empty - I don't want it to look too "flat".

i remember when i was in junior high it seemed like everyone had a monogrammed speedy and all i ever wanted in life was one... now, numerous bags collected later, still no speedy... and i'm remembering with fondness my old attachment... maybe i'll take the plunge this summer - seeing everyone with all their lovely bags just makes me fall more and more in love..

For 4 years, I always wanted the Speedy 30` but over the years....i noticed that all of my bags were big... so I opted for the Speedy 35` instead.....I like the 35` now that I have it...

I'm going to get the 35 though I'm 5'1 I don't think I'll have a problem filling it, but it's going to be heavy...

I am 5'6" and I have the Damier Speedy 25. It is the perfect size for me. It fits all of my stuff with room to spare. The 30 just seem too big.

if i don't want the handles to turn as fast, is there anything i can do?

should i put a protector on the handles, or will that darken them right away? i want to protect them, but i DON'T want them to turn dark. i know they will eventually, but i don't want to speed up the process.

that doesn't make much sense to what i asked, but okay.

does anyone ELSE know of any particular protectant i can put on the handles that won't turn them dark right away? i'm eager to spray them to use the bag, but i don't want to risk discoloring the handles in any way.

I would suggest "Shining Monkey" I've heard rave reviews about this stuff. Also it DOESN'T discolor the vachetta leather .

it is indeed nice. and after trying to fit stuff into the 35 I guess you can't put anything A4 into a 30. it does look big on me, but then again I'm used to big bags

as to sagging: I've cut some cardboard the very day I had the chance to... now it doesn't even sag with heavy books in it

I never thought I liked the LV monogram until I saw a very chic friend of mine carrying a Speedy 25 that was really broken in. The handles were dark and it was very slouchy - such a great bag.
