Lady Dior Design

The Lady Dior is the most popular and iconic Dior bag. It is known for its structured tote bag shape with its two top handles. The Lady Dior bag features calfskin with the famous cannage stitching, signature Dior lettering charms, and flap closure. All Lady Dior bags are handmade by extremely skilled artisan who has trained for years.

What I love about the Lady Dior design is how timeless and classy it is. This bag has been popular since 1995 and will continue to do so for years to come. The Lady Dior bags hold up extremely well over the years. I went vintage shopping in NYC and saw some impeccable vintage Lady Dior bags from the early 2000s that looked in remarkable condition for being over 20 years old. 

Micro Size

The smallest Lady Dior size and newly added to the size lineup is the Micro size. This bag was added to the lineup during the small bag craze. This bag is so tiny but very cute. If you are into tiny bags and are looking for a structured one then the Lady Dior Micro is perfect for you. Given the tiny size, the Micro size can be held by your hand or worn cross-body. When I tried on this bag, I found it super cute and perfect for an evening out.

Mini Size

The second-smallest bag is the Mini Lady Dior bag. I had a hard time choosing between the Mini size and the Small size. The main difference between the two is the mini size comes with a chain strap which makes it a more formal bag to wear during the evening. If you are looking for a bag that can fit all your essentials, you can wear to a formal evening out, and wanting a bag that has a chain for it’s cross body strap then the Mini Lady Dior is perfect for you. The chain on the Lady Dior mini strap is not adjustable.

Small My ABCDIOR Size

The small size Lady Dior bag is called the Small My ABCDIOR bag. What makes this bag unique is that you can customize the letters on the strap. I have my initials, but they also have symbols such as the Dior bee, hearts, flowers and several other options. This is the size I have and I absolutely adore it! This bag is perfect for someone who is looking to customizer their Lady Dior bag, wants a small bag but not too small, and wants a thicker strap that is adjustable. 

I ultimately purchased the Small ABC Lady Dior in matte black because it can fit all my essentials, the thicker strap makes it feel more secure, and you can wear it both day and night.

If you are one of those people who loves carrying several items around and are constantly throwing items into your bag, then the Medium size Lady Dior bag is perfect for you. As someone who has a petite frame (4’11 / 150 CM) when I tried this bag on it look like a large bag on me.

The biggest Lady Dior size is the large size. This bag is the ultimate big tote bag, can be used as a travel bag, and carry tons of items. I will caution you that when you wear this bag and start filling it up with items it can get quite heavy. I tend to see taller people gravitate towards the large size as it fits nicely with their frame.

The most popular Lady Dior size is the size small. This is the size I purchased and absolutely love it. It can be worn during the day and also taken out at night. I opted in for the matte black style, but the traditional black and gold hardware is beautiful as well. In my opinion, the Lady Dior bag is definitely an investment worthy bag. It is a timeless piece, that is easy to style, to wear and can hold your belongings.

    I love LADY DIOR and have a medium in blush. Visiting Paris next month and just can’t decide if I get another or a Chanel Classic (I have a Boy and a Gabrielle). But the cost of a classic is eye watering! Such a difficult decision! Help!
