    I was in monsoon today and on the spur of the moment i bought a beautiful wedding dress in their 70% sale - last one in a size 18

    I am currently 19stones 4 and a size 24 and im trying to work out what i would need to weight (approx) to fit into the dress

    Just looking for motivation :) and an approx date to aim for

    Hope its not too personal a question

    Thanks in advance :)

    Quite alot of difference between me and busy mam for being similar heights! - I still think that everyone is different no matter if their height is the same....

    I'm 5'5" and a size 18ish (depending on what it is and where I get it). I'm in the high end of 14 stone.

    I've just been and looked at the sizes of my monsoon dresses and they are a size 16 and too tight but will probably fit soon I can get them on and fastened but would not look nice in them.

    I'm 5ft 5.5 and a size 18 still at 12st 9. I suppose it depends on how your skeleton is arranged.

    I think Monsoon's sizes come up quite small. I've got 2 size 18 dresses, one I wore at 13 stone and it was perfect fit, the other one was too neat. Neither fit me right now, but I bought a size 18 top in their sale at the weekend and it fits perfectly.

    Like the others say, just depends how your weight is distributed but I reckon you'd be looking at roughly 13-14 stones.
