Birkin Size Guide

Birkin Size Guide

The smallest of the Hermès Birkin is the Birkin Tiny.  These gorgeous little bags were only produced by Hermes for a very short time in 2012 and as a result are extremely rare and hugely sought after.  The demand and desirability for smaller bags has skyrocketed, and one by one new people are finding love for this trend of the year.

Next one is known as the 25 Birkin.  Also known as the ‘Mini Birkin’ (or Baby Birkin) this is a highly sought-after collector's item. It is a difficult size to find and usually only offered to VIP clients. This charming bag moves easily day to evening.  May be carried only by hand.

Larger bags, including 30 Birkins, are highly popular. The bigger handle drop on the 30 cm makes it easy for you to carry the bag on the crook of your arm. The perfect size to move you from day to smart casual dinner .

Birkin 32 Haut À Courroies (aka HAC) is no longer produced and very rare to find. Being slightly narrower and higher, some people think it gives the illusion the woman is taller.
