This case is much larger than I expected! There is so much room, and the compartments are very large. It's a bit awkward pulling the section dividers out of the bottom and 2nd row, but it can be managed once you realize everything is sturdy and is not going to break. Just give the dividers a twist, and they will pop out. The case is really more than I need as it is less than 1/2 full. It's convenient to lock up my make-up though, and store it away where my curious 3 & 5 year old daughters cannot play with it.
