    I just wondered at what kind of weight loss did people notice a dress size change?

    i assume the slimmer members notice a dress size change with fewer pounds?

    i think i was in denial about my size pre-sw so was wearing a size 18 but was probably more a size 20. I am still in my size 18's but they are getting lose, i can't wait to get into a size 16!

    I have gone to a size 16 waist that were getting tight! Sometimes a 16 wouldn't fit either :( Top 16/18 & again they sometimes wouldn't fit comfortably.

    Now :D Size 12 waist & some of the new jeans I already have are getting loose!! & tops, comfortable size 14 :D

    I am so so pleased so far. Monsoon is my fav shop ever. I have a few dresses upstairs in an 18 - I have just recently purchased one in a 12:eek:

    When I was doing WW (the only time I have ever managed to lose a substantial amount of weight to date), it was around 2 stone before I felt a difference and people started to comment on it too.

    my C says the rough guide is every 10lbs! i was a 22 and i am currently a 19 bottom - although some 18's fit, and a 16 - 18 - 20 top....strange!!! :D

    all shops are different, so i never really know the actual size, as a Next 18 is not the same as a New look 18, or a River Island 18!!!

    stress-tastic! x

    I have just gone down to a 12. I have lost 1st 8lb, it does seen to take a lot of weight loss before I see a change in size. I dont have loads of weight to lose about another 1st 7lb.

    I didn't notice a proper change until I had lost 1.5 stones, once I got past that though the changes happened so fast I barely had time to wear the new sizes before they got too big again.

    I am just about fitting into size 12s after being a size 16 initially, and even then some 16s were starting to get tight! Size 12 is fitting better from waist and below - need to lose more off my chest.

    Saying that my wardrobe currently consists of a variety of sizes - I have a size 10 cardigan, size 10-12 tops, size 12-14 tops, then clothes ranging from single sizes of 12, 14 and even some tiny 16s that fit more like a 14! Don't you just hate the huge difference in sizing from shop to shop?

    I was an 18 squeezing into size 16 lol I have lost almost 2 stone and now wear comfortably size 14 some are actually too big and recently I bought myself some skinny jeans from tesco in a 12 with the intention that I will slim into them when they came I tried them on and they fit!!! I do agree tho some sizes are way off I find asda jeans huge had some 14s which I bought before christmas to slim into and they were too big at christmas and I mean hugely too big yet I have a pair of 14s I got from matalan and they only just fit although once I have worn them an hour or so they do loosen a bit :D at christmas I couldnt even get the button close to doing up.

    I dropped a size for every 1.5 stone or so. I decided that in the same way I had my official wi each week on the ww scales - no other sacales counted - I would make next my official shop for gauging my dress size lol. Since all shops are different. So every now and then I would go to next to try on jeans, and that decided in my mind when I dropped sizes.

    I was comfortably into a 20 when I started, now the 20s are very loose, my 18s are 'snug' so I think I'm _almost_ down a size at 10.5lbs

    I am currently in 20's, but have loads of 18's upstairs just waiting to get into and even some 16's!
    I reckon I will have to lose at least 1 to 2 stone before i can get anywhere near the next size down.........watch this space!

    Matalan is my shop that I gauge myself by as I know they cut small. Therefore if I can get into a size 18 in Matalan then most other shops will be fine too.
    I have lost 25 lbs in the past 12 weeks and have gone from a very large size 22 (Asda sized) into a Matalan size 18 (and they are loose, but not quite a 16). My biggest change has been my waist, people started noticing it straight away, I actaully have an hourglass now. Also, my boobs are shrinking. I only just bought a brand new properly fitted bra in one of those Rigby and Pellor type shops, cost me £36, and it is loose already!

    I'm actually looking forward to going to a bbq this weekend for a friends birthday, haven't seen her for a year and I was always her fat friend, but now I suspect I will be slimmer than her as last time I saw her she was piling on the pounds.

    I would agree with every 1.5 stones I think! I've nearly lost that now and my size 16 jeans are literally falling off me! I've been buying size 14 tops and I bought a skirt in a 12 the other day! (very elasticated waist tho) :p

    I started at a 16..

    I have lost 21lb and am now into 14s.

    Although my SKINNY jeans from PRIMARK are a 14 and are starting to fall down when I walk, so I am hoping it will soon be 12s all round :) !!

    Also, speaking of Primark....saw some lovely linen pants for summer, only had them in a 14. Thought I would risk it for a biscuit as by the time the summer actually got here, they would/should fit. Tried them on and they fit me now!!

    Everyone knows Primark sizes are dodgy, so I am happy-ish lol.
