The Hermes Birkin bags sizes are available in 25, 30, 35, 40 and 50cm sizes. There are also two bigger models, the 45cm and 55cm, which are intended to be used as traveling bags, but these are no longer made.
The Hermes HAC is similar to the Birkin and most people cannot tell the difference. This bag comes in 27cm, 32cm, and 37cm sizes and features shorter handles. It is no longer made though. But you can find some in the resale market.

The 35cm Birkin is regarded by most as the best choice and remains the most coveted bag from Hermes. For most women, the size is not overpowering and holds a lot for our busy lifestyles. Though the 30 cm seems to be the current bag of popularity owing to the fact that so many 35cm are flooding the resale market at a discount while the 30cm are as well – at an extreme markup.
Price Approx: $13,000
It’s the size of the first Birkin, made by the requirement of Jane Birkin. The 40cm Birkin will always be known as the original design. It is a little too big for most women but is a great size for a man. Also great for a woman looking for more of a briefcase or a small travel bag.
Price varies per Resale market
The 45cm Birkin was once the biggest model available with two types of a handle and a shoulder strap.
This is now the largest Birkin bag currently sold by Hermes. It is clearly a travel bag and only comes in certain leathers. The price is rumored to be around $17,000. Unfortunately, I cannot find the actual dimensions. The next time I’m in the store, I’ll ask and update the post.
