What sizes does the Chanel 19 flap bag come in?

There are 4 Chanel 19 flap bag sizes at the moment: waist bag, small, large and maxi. The small bag is 6.2″ x 10″ x 3.5″ so it’s plenty big enough for your wallet, phone, keys and lipstick.

Because of the metal straps, which are substantial, it’s a little heavier than the classic flap bag but the leather at the top of the shoulder strap means there are no chains digging in.

I like the smaller bags but this is more practical and a great size for going from day to night. It can also be worn as a shoulder bag or top handle bag. The larger ones were too big for my frame or to be able to use as an evening bag.

Measurements are L x H x D and in inches.

  • Chanel 19 belt bag sizing varies from measures 7-9″ X 4.5-5.25″ X 2-2.5″ and the strap measures 38-39″ depending on the style and material.
  • The Chanel 19 small bag measures 6.2″ x 10″ x 3.5″
  • The Chanel 19 large bag measures 7.8″ X 11.7″ X 3.9″
  • The Chanel 19 maxi bag measures 9.8″ x 14″ X 4.3″

How much is a Chanel 19?

This flap bag comes in 4 sizes and at the time of writing this (2022) the Chanel 19 bag prices are:

  • Chanel 19 belt bag is no longer available in boutiques but the Chanel 19 waist bag is available pre-loved and range from $1995-$3295.

Is the Chanel 19 bag worth it?

At the end of the day, Chanel’s a luxury brand so that’s a personal opinion. All Chanel bags are excellent quality and the price reflects that. However, when you go for a lambskin bag, factor in that it’ll scratch and wear more easily than calfskin, goatskin or bull skin leather. They have also been doing price increases this year putting the cost up quite significantly. So personally I don’t think this bag style is worth it and prefer calfskin.

What materials does the Chanel 19 flap bag come in?

The Chanel 19 flap bag comes in several different finishes including calfskin, tweed and fabric but the small version (pictured) is lambskin. It’s not currently available in goatskin in boutiques (2021).

Will Chanel 19 become a classic?

This is debatable. I personally think the black leather version has more of a chance of becoming a classic than a more colorful, fabric version, as its not so fashion forward with its shape, material and or a color that will date.

However, other versions like the tweed, metallic or material ones are more likely to date than become classics as the material and prints will come in and out of style.

The chunky chain is the only thing that might date the black version of this bag but as you can see from the photos, the chains really not that thick. So I don’t think it’ll go out of style anytime soon.

Is the Chanel 19 bag still popular?

Yes! Just look at fashion bloggers, celebrities and influencers and you’ll see this style in all sizes and colors is still popular and trending. I really wanted the pink one but it had sold out and I was told at the Chanel boutique they wouldn’t be bringing back that exact version of the bag.
