    How long to drop a dress size?

    This maybe a bit like asking how long is a piece of string! I know the average weight loss is 14lbs a month, but I've bought my Christmas dress a size too small - what are the chances of it fitting??

    Thanks!

    Re: How long to drop a dress size?

    I think it depends a lot on how much you have to lose, I found that the more I had to lose the more it took me to lose a dress size. Also depends on how your current clothes fit too I think.
    I'm squeezed into size 20s that have a lot of stretch in them so I'd say it'll take me at least 2stone to get into a proper 18 whereas you might be a lot smaller and your clothes might fit better so it may only take 10lbs x x

    Agree with happybunny it totally depends on how much you have to lose and your current size. I lost 3st10lbs and only went from an 18 to a loose 16 , however my mum only had to lose a stone to go from a 14 to a 10/12.

    Good luck I'm sure if you stick to it that dress will be yours x

    How long to drop a dress size?

    Flipping heck jewel that's awesome like I said in pp I lost nearly 4 stone last year and only dropped one proper dress size- everyone said I looked a lot slimmer yet it was still only 1 size! Hopefully getting to the next one won't take quite so much weight loss lol x

    Amazing Jewel! :thumbup:
    Reeeeally hope to be a size down by Christmas but I'm not going to over think it, I think that's been my problem in the past. I'm going to go by the different "stones" like when I weigh next Sunday I should see the next stone bracket down and so on.

    How long to drop a dress size?

    I think it all depends how toned you are aswell as after 2 kids I've got the big mummy jelly belly muffin top so find it takes me a long time to drop a size especially on the bottom. Like lucy last summer I dropped 3st from 14st to 11st and only went from a 16 to a 14 in jeans .

    This year i started back at 14st and a size 16 jeans and now after dropping 1st I'm feeling no difference so think I will need to loss at least another 1-1.5st to get back into my 14's so I think how much loose fat you have to loss makes a huge difference.

    They do say you should drop a size with every 10lbs lost but I think that's only if your already fairly toned (so not me ) x

    I think height is a factor too, I find that taller people seem to take longer to drop sizes than shorter people. I'm only 5ft tall x

    Yep jewels right I'm 5'7 and if I drop a stone is does nothing for me in the clothes department. It's only when I drop two stones that I see. Difference!

    Basically for me this is how it works 16.5stones I'm a size 16 , when im 14.5 stones I'm size 14 and so forth it's unusual but that's how it works for me.

    So currently I'm 15.10 and still a size 16 can't wait to get to size 14 again, however I've been rubbish as of late ad so I think it will deffo take me longer that I anticipated.

    But if you stuck at it I'm sure you'll ft into your dress before Xmas! Good luck x

    Thank you v much for all the info. I'm short, so hopefully that'll help. I guess it also depends on where I lose weight from, as I carry a lot on my bum and thighs which makes it harder to drop trouser sizes!

    I had 28 lb to lose and it took 20lb of that before I dropped from size 14 to 12 at the bottom and 14lb to drop from 16 to 12 at top. Then only another 4lb to drop another size at bottom to 10 but I'm still a 12 at top. Unfortunately I carry all my weight on belly and boobs, proper apple me. X

    That's interesting fatty girl cause I'm 5ft7 aswell but as of today I'm exactly 13 stone dead and I'm a 16 on the bottom and 18 on the top

    To drop a size and get into a 16 top and 14 bottom I have to get down to 11st7 (my goal weight) so im assuming it must all be to do with my mummy tummy as my o/h always tells me i carry all my weight round the middle and it must be true if i am 13st and a size 16 yet you were 16.5st and a 16??

    I think I will need to start doing some tummy toning exercises x

    Hiya luv, it's always been that way for me, I've got a big bust and bottom but my waist is smaller compared to the rest of me. I guess I'm relatively lucky because I'm kinda even everywhere and my stomach on a Good day is relatively flat....Lol
    So I can wear 16's without a problem most days.

    I would so love to be your weight right now and in all honesty Hun you've only got a stone and a half to go which I'm sure you will get to in good time because your committed. It will be interesting to compare our body shape and weights when we reach our target.

    I don't really have a target but anything below 13 stones would make me very happy! :0) il change my profile pic so you can see what I look like well it's when I was around 16.7 stones xx
