    Hey girlies

    So im hoping to have lost about 2 n half stone by Xmas. I am currently wearing mostly 16's...
    My question iss...if i reach that goal, do you think it would show in dress sizes? Im really hoping not to buy a size 16 xmas day dress. :p
    Plus we are all off to Cameroon for Xmas and it will be baking! Kind of hoping i may be a little trimmer for a bikini :eek:

    I know everyone is different...but personal experience stories much appreciated ;)

    Thank you much xxx

    I think you'll definately drop dress sizes with that weight loss because you're not massive to start with. xx

    I think I read somewhere that on average it's a stone per dress size. Depends though, everyone is different.

    I did get a bit self conscious on holiday in and around the pool, especially when there was young, slim women around with large boobs! At one point too there was some models around the pool being filmed - this made me feel really ugly.

    Hi frumpy2sexy
    I'm the same height as you. when I was 128lb I was just aboutr in a size 10. at 163 I was a size 16, at 149lb I am now a size 14. I know we're all different, but at your goal you will definately be a size 10, allow about a stone for each size. Good luck hon xxx

    Hi, Personally, I dropped a dress size each stone I lost, but everyone is different. I'm sure you won't be wearing a size 16 though!

    You're all so lucky! It takes me 2 stone (ish) to drop a dress size! I think it depends if you carry your weight evenly like being an hourglass - which is a blessing on the way UP and a killer on the way DOWN - it takes longer to drop a dress size. But if you are bigger in any particular place - like being an apple shape where you carry your weight in the middle are, but your limbs are thinner - then you dross dress sizes quicker.

    I don't know if that makes sense!

    I've lost 5 stone 9lb and have just managed to get into a size 16 from a size 22. I'm hoping to be a 12 when I reach my goal of losing 10 stone. Fingers crossed :)

    Good luck with your weight loss and one thing is for sure - you won't be a 16 by Christmas.
