We can change the size of the button groups using the following classes .btn-group-lg for larger buttons, .btn-group-sm for small buttons and .btn-group-xs for extra small buttons.

<!-- large button group size -->
<div class="btn-group btn-group-lg" role="group" aria-label="button group">

  <div class="btn btn-default">Copy</div>
  <div class="btn btn-default">Paste</div>
</div>

<!-- default button group size -->
<div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="button group">
  <div class="btn btn-default">Cut</div>
  <div class="btn btn-default">Copy</div>
  <div class="btn btn-default">Paste</div>
</div>
