LOL! My name is not Ellen, but I agree 100% with the original poster that these tags are way too big, bulky, scratchy and totally annoying. My ritual upon receiving any new Athleta clothing is to remove the hang tags and then, with a sharp pair of sewing scissors, I carefully clip out these tags. I then try to fluff out the edges of the remaining stumps to soften them. All the while, I am praying that I haven't snipped too close to the fabric and caused irreversible damage. Please find another solution! Thanks!!
