Louis Vuitton Neverfull Review: MM vs GM
There is no doubt that Louis Vuitton is one of my favorite luxury brands. It’s not only a pioneer in the fashion space but an iconic brand with long-standing heritage. One of the pieces they’re most known for is their classic handbags. I personally find them to be so functional and durable, especially the Louis Vuitton Neverfull totes. It’s by far one of my favorite line of designer bags. I own both the GM and MM sizes – and can honestly say that they are easily some of the most versatile bags in my collection. I foresee myself carrying them for years!

If you are thinking about purchasing your own iconic bag, I’ll be sharing my Louis Vuitton Neverfull review today. You can expect a break down everything you need to know about the MM and GM sizes. The Neverfull itself was incepted in 2007 and is one of the most timeless pieces in the entirety of the luxury handbag world. Since many of you are always asking about which one you should go with, this post will answer some of those questions.
If you’re looking to put your hard earned dollars in an investment piece, you really cannot go wrong with one of these totes. All bags in the Neverfull line feature a sturdy canvas exterior with a soft, luxurious textile-lined interior, and natural cowhide leather trim and straps. The structure is sleek and practical, which makes storing your everyday necessities easy. Plus, each bag comes with a detachable zippered clutch that you can use as a pochette or interior pocket.
Here’s what you need to know about the two sizes:

Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM – $1,500
The MM’s dimensions read at 12.6 in x 11.4 in x 6.7 in. It is perfect for those who lust after this iconic bag but want to personalize it to their taste. Unlike the GM, the MM is available in 5 different material options, including the Damier Ebene, Epi Leather Denim, Damier Azur Canvas, Monogram, and Epi Leather.
This bag is a true medium-sized tote that’s great for everyday. It allows you to comfortably fit a phone, wallet, planner, and laptop or tablet with enough space leftover for your other personal belongings. It is the optimal size throw on your shoulder and bring along to the office or to run errands, especially if you’re on the petite side like me.
However, if you are looking for one handbag to fit all your needs when going from work to the gym or especially for travel, you might find that the MM is too small to do so with ease. In that case, I would consider going a size up with the GM.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM – $1,580
The GM is the largest of the Neverfull collection and is 15.7 in x 13 in x 7.9 in. It is only available in Damier Ebene, Damier Azur Canvas, and Monogram. This handbag shares the same exact features as the MM but is slightly larger. This means a lot more space for toting everything you might need no matter where you’re going.
I find that the GM can comfortably fit a lot more things than the MM. It is the perfect solution for an easy overnight bag or for a stylish carry on. I’m always pulling mine out when I’m traveling. On the other hand, this larger size means it might not be ideal for daily use if you don’t regularly carry a multitude of items. Given the small price difference of the GM & MM sizes, you definitely get the most value for your money here.
When making the big decision about which Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag to invest in, you should definitely think about how you intend to use this bag, what you plan to carry, and how often you’ll carry it. Personally, I don’t use the GM everyday although I do use it regularly. The MM is a great sized bag for daily use and looks great for any occasion. Regardless of what size you go with, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM or GM is something you won’t regret.
