Why Do They Do That?

Beth wasn't real happy the other night when she got her new jeans. She was happy with the jeans, she just wasn't happy with the size. She usually buys 3 Longs, but when she tried them on, they didn't fit. So she had to go with the 5's. I have a pair of jeans from that store, same brand - 5 Regular, because the Longs were too long for me. So, I was giving her a hard time - not really, I just said, "I can borrow you jeans now, except they'll be too long." And she said "Shut up."

This morning I decided to try a pair of her new jeans on. They didn't fit. Beth didn't need a bigger jeans size. They just made the sizes smaller. Why would they do that?

It just proves that, no matter how long you've been buying and wearing the same size in the same brand of anything, you should always try it on before you buy a new one.

  1. Now that's weird. I've found that as I gain weight, my jeans sizes get smaller. There is no way I am a size 6.

    I heard on one of the morning shows that manufacturers are making the sizes smaller (like a size 10 is now a size8) to increase our self esteem. Yeah right. Although, I don't know what this has to do with your daughter's jeans....LOL.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
