Glad I found this thread! I've been having huge trouble with deciding whether to get the 25 or the 30 in monogram or damier!
I'm 5'4 and the 30 looked like a suitcase on me, but after reading this thread I'm really not sure!
Why do some of you think the smallness of the speedy 25 looks silly?

the 25 at 1st glance is a good size but after using
it just seems like a teenager kind of bag...to me at least
but i still use it once every now and then

I have a Speedy 40 and it's way too big. I only use it for travel- as an overnight or carry on bag. I bought it intending on using it for school, but it's too big even for that.

I'm getting a damier speedy for my birthday. I'm probably getting the 25, just because I already have a huge speedy. I'm 5'7 and I always use little purses anyways. After reading this thread and seeing how much everyone likes the 30, I'm considering maybe getting it, but I'll probably end up getting the 25.

What size are you?
I'm an Australian size 10, 5"2 and carry the 35 and I think it looks great...

I'm AUS size 8 and 5'4. The speedy 30 just looked a bit bulky compared to the 25.

i have a 35 and it is so handy for travelling. i bought a 25 for my first speedy and didn't even use it often because it just can't hold much stuff.

The size of a Speedy is a matter of personal taste in my opinion - just try sizes in front of the mirror, and hopefully one will eventually "speak" to you!

It's the 25 (Damier) that "spoke" to me, and I'm 1,71 cm (5,7'? 5,8'? I'm not sure of the conversion to feet)

I just got the 30 and I find it small!! The 25 would be too small...what is the 35 like? I guess I expected it to be bigger (in terms of being able to stuff a sweater or something in there but maybe the 35 wld be too big..

the 35 is just right since i need to fit A4 in it, though it's 35 cm you won't be able to fit fat (like 2 inch) A4 stuff in it, just because you can't get through the zipper. a sweater does fit, and a jeans, a shirt, some underwear, a small waterbottle, makeupbag, wallet cellphone.... I was bored and stuffed it to the max, the dimensions are 35x23x19cm, so I can fit 15liters of stuff...

Yes see that is ideal and what I was looking for...something I can use even to stuff overnight things in but no worries..I think the 30 will do me just fine..thanks for the info ambidextrous!

depends....you can suntan them by placing the bag on a window sil or in sunlight somewhere, because it speeds up the oxidizing process of the leather. exposure to sun, natural oil from your skin, etc increases the darkening.

my mom got the speedy 30 before i was born, and I am turning 28 this year, my mom still uses the speedy, and it still looks great. I am not a big fan of LV, but i have to say the durability of their products is just amazing.
