Dear LL Bean,

Oh how I typically love you. I love your quintessential Maine boots, your jackets, your tote bags. However, I have a bone to pick with you. I just came home from Maine and what a great trip it was. On the way home I needed to stop in Freeport to return a fleece jacket I bought online from you. Reason for returning the jacket; it was too big. Typically this wouldn't annoy me, except that I have the same style and brand of jacket upstairs that I purchased a few years earlier, and I made a point to check the size before I placed my order with you so that I wouldn't have to return it. But apparently you have changed the sizing. I went from a Medium to an Extra Small, and the XS it a wee bit big at that. If this meant I lost weight I would be rejoicing, however, given my lack of dieting will power and my love of all things sweet this is not the case. I bought an Extra Small, too big shirt anyways because I have been silently battling with you, LL Bean for almost a year. Last Christmas I got a vest that needed to be returned because it was too big, which got exchanged for a skirt, which was also too big, and then most recently a fleece, also too big. I know I am not the skinniest person in the world, so my questions to you LL Bean are; where do the skinner people shop? Do you think they don't exist? Is this an elaborate plan to foil my weight loss dreams? Please resolve this issue before I am forced to gain weight to fit properly into your clothes.
Thank you,
Lauren Q. Cassidy.
P.S. I still love you, especially your shoe selection, how you carry Smart wool socks of many colors, and also that you are open 24 hours a day.

  1. Lauren is right. Clothes designers want people to think they don't have to worry about dieting if the clothing size is unknowingly (to the customer)dopho changed. I have the same problem. I rarely buy anything from LL Bean unless I can go there and try it on as the sizes have changed so dramatically to make the obese feel better.


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading what you have to say :)
