Out of all the handbags in my collection, my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM and MM are the two I wear the most. One I purchased brand new and the second I bought previously loved. I receive questions every day about the size difference, quality, color, and how to organize them. Answering ALL of them on this post!
LOUIS VUITTON NEVERFULL REVIEW
SIZE: I love both the GM and MM for different reasons. Unless you are SUPER petite, I don’t think the PM is worth it (it’s the smallest of the three sizes).
My Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM in Damier Azur (or the white and grey checked) is perfect for a handbag! I can fit everything in it that I need to and then some. It fits on your shoulder perfectly and can be carried on your arm like a true handbag.
My Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM in Monogram (the tan LV on the brown canvas) is my travel tote, work tote, everyday tote. This can literally carry everything in it. If I need to work at a coffee shop, I will take this over my MM due to the size. When I travel, this sits perfectly on top of my carryon as I wheel it through the airport. If I am hanging out with my sister and her kiddos, I will carry this too since I can slip snacks and extra shoes in it.
Both bags can be compressed with the side ties to make it a smaller silhouette.
In my opinion, there is quite a big difference in the usage of these sizes but not necessarily a big difference in the actual size. It is 100% worth it to buy the GM because it has way more functionality to it. I don’t feel like I a lugging around luggage when I carry my GM but I am way more happy with what I can carry in it then my MM.
MATERIAL: Both of these bags are canvas with leather handles and piping. This is AMAZING for a couple reasons. Yes, you are investing in a non-leather handbag BUT the canvas wears like iron. I can wipe it down with a cloth and it cleans up, even the white based one. The leather handles and piping can be protected from the rain as well. THIS product can be sprayed on the leather to guard it against the weather. If it gets on the canvas, just wipe it off.
My GM is from the early 2000’s and looks SO GOOD! Investing in this brand pays off, they hold their value and hold their quality.
ORGANIZE: This is my hidden secret, I use THIS $20 organizer in all of my totes and is a complete game changer! I use the XL size for my GM and the M size for my MM. They help to give the bag shape, especially the longer you have owned them, the softer the canvas gets. This ensures that the bottom of the bag is flat. The material is super soft so it won’t damage the lining of your bag. Both of my Louis Vuitton Neverfull bags have tan interiors so I purchased the tan so that it would blend.
This is what my GM looks like when traveling!
TIP: I take out the removable center slots because I use toiletry bags in my handbag already. I line these in the center of the organizer and call it good. My favorite toiletry bags are from Tory Burch or clear ones!
Also, my laptop slides perfectly right next to the organizer when I am traveling or going to a coffee shop to work.
SMALL POUCH: All Louis Vuitton Neverfull handbags come with a cute little pouch. I use this as a clutch, it’s seriously the perfect size! Some women use it as a wallet as well. Unfortunately, when I purchased my Neverfull GM, it didn’t include the pouch so I only have it in the Damier Azur. I am on the hunt for the Monogram Neverfull Pouch!
BUY PREVIOUSLY LOVED: I am not opposed to buying designer items gently previously loved! It’s a great way to invest in these pieces on a better budget. I have used a couple of places in the past to source these designer products, sharing them all below.
eBay: ONLY purchase designer items from the eBay part of the site, it’s called eBay authenticate. eBay goes through these listings with an authentication team that will verify it’s authentication take professional photos, and list it on this part of the site. I do not personally feel comfortable purchasing designer items on the other part of the site due to hearing too many sob stories of unauthenticated handbags being purchased.
StockX Bags: I purchased my cute little Gucci card holder from them. I was SO impressed! It came in a StockX Bags dust bag, authentication card, and with the original Gucci box and authentication. I saved $50 on my first purchase! The process was easy and fast.
The Real Real: I haven’t personally purchased through The Real Real but I do know they are a reputable company to purchase through. They have a skilled authentication team! Their prices are super affordable and the process is quick. They even have a $25 off your first purchase coupon.
I hope this Louis Vuitton Neverfull review was helpful!
