There’s no doubt that Gucci bags are hot and we are all dying to get our hands on them. However, there is a puzzling question that always comes up when we finally decide on a color, and that is…”What size should I get?!”
It is really difficult to come up with an answer when there are so many options to choose from. There is a maxi, medium, small, mini and now a super mini! Looking through all the #guccimatmont pictures on Instagram does not really help either because all the bags look amazing! The reality is that it may take you a day or two to decide if you are as indecisive as me! :p
Let me begin by saying that Marmont bags are one of my favorite styles and here are the reasons why:
- I like the flap and GG logo on the front
- I prefer the leather ones because they seem to be very durable and require less “care”. I’m not saying that the velvet or satin ones are not durable, but those materials require a lot more TLC, which in my opinion can be really annoying!
- You can wear them as shoulder bags or crossbody, depending on your preference. The super mini has a chain shoulder strap that can be removed so it can also be worn as a clutch!
- And BIG NEWS, despite their size, they are all very spacious, with the exception of the super mini, which I find tiny (6.5″W x 4″H x 1.5″D).
It should be no brainer, pick whatever size you feel more comfortable wearing. I tend to buy smaller bags nowadays, for no specific reason at all, I just love them!
I own the Marmont bag in sizes small (10.25″W X 6″H X 2.75″D) and mini (8.5″W x 5″H x 2.5″D), but if you ask me, the mini is my favorite! ❤

Both small and mini sizes can hold about the same amount of stuff. In my small Marmont I can usually fit a longer wallet, keys, sunglasses case, phone, charger and lip balm and maybe a small snack. 😛 To be able to fit all those items in the mini I would have to leave the sunglasses case and use a smaller wallet instead. Everything else would be the same. In my opinion, both the mini and small Marmont look very similar in size!
However, I you want the Marmont to be your everyday bag, I definitely recommend getting the medium size (12.25″W X 7.5″H X 2.75″D) so you do not have to worry about selecting what to bring in it.

So far I have no complaints about my Marmont leather bags. My only issue, when it comes to the velvet ones, is that you have to be very careful about how you store them so the chain does not leave any marks on the velvet. I do baby my velvet bags around and gives me anxiety just to think that they will someday get stained. My first velvet bag was the fuchsia and ended up selling it because I could not deal with the stress of taking care of it. Sadly, I have regretted it ever since! It has been a while since that and now I am willing to bear with that stress because the velvet bags are so pretty and the new designs are just to die for!!!
