Yes, I fall for it

There are some stores where you just wear a smaller size than others, and even though intellectually I know it’s just a number and doesn’t mean anything, emotionally I am secretly please and tiny-feeling. (I’m aware that I have issues, by the way.)

So when I recently discovered that I am one size smaller in pants at Eddie Bauer, yeah, it’s possible I started to like them a whole lot more than I already did. My husband’s been shopping there forever; now I have a new favorite place for chinos and shorts, too. I mean, as long as they’re telling me how skinny I am….

Anyway, why am I telling you this? Through tomorrow (May 20th, 2010), you can use code MAYFREE for free shipping on your whole order at Eddie Bauer ($3 handling fee still applies). It’s a good time to stock up if you’re already a fan, or a good time to try the magic of smaller pants if you haven’t checked them out before. I’m just sharing the joy.


  1. Learnig this is a great relief for me. I have a friend who always buys a smaller size that me. She LOOKS like the same size as me…Made me feel more frumpy than usual. Now I know. The secret in in her (Eddie Bauer) jeans!

  2. I don’t know if this will work in conjunction with the free shipping–or if you have to be registered for their rewards–but I have a code that’ll work for 25% off online. It’s SUMMER25. Good through May 23.
