Chanel Classic Maxi Flap Bag Review


Oversized bags can be useful and with the right shirt and shoe, you will look stunning. The Chanel classic maxi flap bag is the biggest size of the Chanel classic collection. It can fit twice your essentials. But who would want such large bag?

If you are tall, the medium and jumbo might be too small for you. I would consider the maxi flap bag.

If you have an obsession for carrying a lot of essentials, then the jumbo might not have enough space for you. Head over to the maxi flap bag.

And if you simply adore large bags, the maxi can look very cute. I have seen several celebrities with the maxi. Love it!

The Chanel maxi flap bag comes in different colors and materials. The most classic color is black in caviar or lambskin. Most people prefer caviar, because the lambskin can get scratched very easily. But note that the caviar is much more heavier. The maxi flap bag is not light, even when you choose lambskin as your favorite.

There are two kind of hardware available; you can go with the silver or gold.

The size difference is not much difference between medium and jumbo, from the eyes perspective. But the jump between the jumbo and maxi is huge. Here, allow me to give you an indication.

Chanel Jumbo flap bag is sized: 12″ x 8″ x 3″.
And Maxi flap bag is sized: 13″ x 9″ x 4″.

The bag is larger in every way. The Chanel maxi flap bag was introduced back in 2009, no one had expected that there would be a size bigger than the jumbo. But then Chanel had also released the reissue 2.55 size 227.

The price of the maxi is a bit more expensive than the jumbo. Because Chanel change their prices regularly, we thought it would be more simple if we just update one page. For the latest Chanel bag prices, please go here.

    I love my Maxi. I do not feel that it is too large for my 5’2 frame. I purchased mine at the beginning of 2010 and it still looks perfect. Beige Caviar with gold hardware.

    I bought this bag in Paris last year. I have dreamed a long time of getting one. It’s my little baby. It burned some cash out of my wallet it is DEFINETLY WORTH every euro’s. I might be going back to Paris next year for an internship. So excited.

    i don’t feel the maxi is large at all. I love inside maxi bag, the space are so organized and I have bad habit of bringing my whole garderobe with me when going out. Maxi is also very handy when you are on holiday. Most stuff fit easily.
