When I first opened it, it seemed humongous! But I pulled the drawstrings to bring the corners in and now it looks less bulky and has more of a square look. I'm able to put my 11.6" laptop and case in there perfectly along with all my other things. Sometimes I find myself digging for stuff because it's so spacious. The only downside to this purse is the handles. It hurts my shoulders whenever I put it on no matter how much weight I have in it. As you may see, the handles are thin for a pretty large purse. If they had put more material or padding on the handles, it would have been a more comfortable fit.
