It can vary greatly by the type of shapefile and what data you drop but for a 31M building file I got a 155M output .osm. As a snapshot DB it'll be 2x-3x larger.

This would make your shapefile 25M as .osm and about 60M of database space.

Just for reference, the largest single .osm I've had ogr2osm generate was 25G and I'm looking at applications that involve planet-sized amounts of data across multiple files.
