    I am a size 24 bottom 22 top at the minute.

    What size were you?

    What size are you now?

    How long did it take to drop a dress size?

    Thanks

    It takes me a stone and a half to drop a dress size, it seems like forever.

    Hi,
    I was a 24 top & 22 bottom when I started (verging on the next size up) and was 17 stone 1lb. I am now 12 stone 10lb (as of last sunday) and a size 14 top & bottom.

    I think a lot depends on shape etc...
    Good luck

    I started a size 22 (16st 11lbs) and i'm now a size 12 (11st). It seemed to take a long time to drop a dress size when I was bigger but are now going down faster.

    I am a size 18 at 13 stone 2 lb (started at 13. 8 size 18 as well). Thinking it will probably take a stone at least to get "squeezed" into a smaller size. A few years ago at around 14stone I was a 20.

    I'm 16 bottom and 14 top at the moment.

    Started at 18 bottom and 16 top.

    2 stone 2 lb's down and only down one dress size! :cry:

    I think it'll be another long while before i'm down again as last time i was 12 top 14 bottom i was 11st7! So 2.5 stone away!!!

    Arggghhhh!

    It must be to do with frame size as I have broad shoulders etc i guess.............

    I used to be a size 26 at biggest 17 st 12 - now 11 2 and am wearing a 10 to 12 top and 14 bottoms - I agree about a stone to a stone and a half a size - gets less as you get smaller for some reason

    Hi I was 12.6 when I started and a size 16/18 top 16 bottoms, I have now lost 24lb in 7 wks and can get in a size 14 top and 12 bottoms. Can't believe how fast the weight comes off with Cambridge

    Great thread!

    I can't contribute a lot i'm afraid... i started at a 22 (18 st 2 lbs)all over and nearly 2 stone later i think i'm a 20 but not sure as i'm refusing to buy new clothes until i will defo fit in the next size down. I don't want to be disappointed if after all this effort i'm still in a 22!
