    on average - how much do you have to loose to drop a full dress size - ie from tight to tight - or good fit to good fit?

    Just curious !

    Depends on your body shape etc.

    I started as a size 16/18 at 14st 7 and 5ft6
    I am now a size 10/12 at 9st7

    Someone else on the forum may be built differently to me, and despite being the same height and weight, be in larger or smaller clothing sizes. Some people 'guesstimate' at a dress size per stone - but it really does depend on WHERE that stone comes from!

    I have to agree with DebG that it depends where it comes from. My big tummy always held me at a higher size ... I had to wear at size 18 at 12st 7lb to fit over my tum even thuogh the shoulders, legs and bum were baggy. Had my weight been more evenly distributed then I may have reasonably been a 16.

    This is so true. I read once that most women start by losing weight in the face and breasts!

    My GP said 10lbs to 1st for a dress size, but again it said it corresponds an advanced stage of a diet.

    I have lost 16lbs but I can not get into a smaller size yet. Tops or bottoms. I am 5' 10"" tall.

    I've dropped 4 stone and 4 dress sizes in 10 weeks!!

    I'm dropping an average of 5/6 pounds a week (well up until this wk when I lapsed!) and treat myself to size smaller jeans every 3 weeks if I can!
