About 5 years ago I was given a pair of jeans. They are Eddie Bauer jeans and for whatever reason I LOVED them. I tried them on, They didn’t go past my knees. EVEN though they said they were a size 14. (Just remember as I tell this all jeans are made different) As the years have gone on I have tried these jeans on and off and still never been able to put them on. The story of my jeans then goes like this.
It may surprise you to learn I’ve been trying to lose weight. (I know I know I never talk about it. I’m just such a private person.)
Feb-I tried on the jeans they still didn’t go past my knees. They are put back into the closet.
April-I tried on the jeans they didn’t go much past my knees. They are put back into the closet.
July-What! The jeans go up to the middle of my thighs? Thats awesome. They are put back in the closet.
September-No WAY the jeans now go up to my butt!!! They are put back in the closet.
November-The jeans GO OVER MY BUTT!!! I never saw that coming. They are put back in the closet.
Feb-Its been a year. The jeans can button but its not cute. Too much is falling out. They are put back into the closet.
March 12th-The jeans come out. The jeans go over my butt. The jeans button. THE JEANS LOOK GOOD!!! Stop it! So excited. They are in my pants rotation now but I don’t plan on taking them off for a few days because I’m that happy.
The moral of all of this. First just because the jeans have a number on it doesn’t mean they will or won’t fit you. All my other jeans are 10’s at this point. Except for this. I don’t think Eddie Bauer makes jeans for big butts. Second…Never give away clothes. Ever. No matter what people say. If that dress, pair of pants, that skirt , that shirt is your goal KEEP THEM! Its going to keep you going and one day they WILL FIT
