I dropped a dress size after I lost 1.5 stone but it depends on the individual and where you lose the weight from 1st. I am very close to dropping another size too.:D

I think they say 10lbs on average but it varies from person to person. I think there's usually 2 inches on a waist size difference between sizes so that's quite a good guide. But don't forget that all the shops size things a bit differently (or, as I find in H&M, wildly differently - I can be in a 12 top and 20 bottoms! LOL!)

In Mark One i'm a size 12 top but in H&M i'm an 18. Pfft. lol.

New Look is the only shop that gets it right for me, size 14 in every top they do lol. xx

H&M is so annoying! Love the shop but the sizing is crazy! I was a size 14 and I had to buy a size 20 blouse! Size 14's there feel like size 8's most of the time... I think I have one or two items from H&M which are actually my correct size.

I've dropped a dress size and I've lost a stone so far... but my bottom half is still comfortable in a size 14.

Does anyone else get annoyed with how low slung some jeans and trousers are? I find they're ridiculous and emphasise my belly even more so I don't buy them, I very rarely buy jeans/trousers because the cut most of the time is so weird on me! I becoming a big fan of dresses!

It is horrible being in between sizes, everything feels big and you have to keep pulling trousers up but next size is far too tight grrrr.

Rachella i know what you mean about the low cut jeans, i hate this as when i have had jeans like that the top half of my stomach falls over the jeans and when i sit down the back of them goes away down so that i'm practically bearing all. i try to look for higher waisted trousers and jeans now.
