    I've been reading that it was a myth that Marilyn Monroe was a Size 16 - how disappointing. Apparently her measurements fluctuated around 38-23-36 and 37-23-37. I reckon that would make her a Size 12. Clearly she had a great hourglass figure and I can only dream about a 23 waist - that's more like my thigh!!!! I'd love to hear what your statistics are guys............

    perhaps sizes have changed since then too, even now i can walk into 3 different shops and be 3 different sizes! I have never been able to go into i shop and know that i am just 1 size because each shop varies so much

    like pinkie says sizes vary wildly over the years, Livi jeans haven't revised their measurements since the war! Wasn't everyone on rashons then?? a size 14 then is much smaller than now

    Also, Mazza was one of the first famous women of her time to weight train hard and heavy.

    Whatever size she was, she was/is an icon! She was born in 1926 so would 82 now if she'd lived - hard to believe huh!
    My stats when starting 47 - 41 - 46
    Now 44 - 36 - 43
    Lost 3 - 5 - 46

    A long way to go yet, but you all inspire me!

    If she was a size 12 usa then she was a 16 in the uk. So that would be about right to what the media says x

    Lol Helena!!!

    Bust overflowing (38G)
    Waist rotund (was size 22/24 now 16/18)
    Hips size 14!

    But then I'm a typical apple shape!

    Daughter was devastated when we bought her prom dress in the US coz she had to have a bigger size (can't remember what it was now) and I had to reassure her that she wasn't fat, their sizes are just smaller than ours! She's tall and curvy and gorgeous.

    I am utterly confused by this whole sizing thing.
    Today, I went out, happy in the firm knowledge that I was an 18/20 on bottom, and an 18 on top. M&S n Monsoon sizes!
    But...then I start shopping, and all the 18s n 20s are too big, and only 16s are right, top and bottom.
    But, I'm short (5'1"), and I have this horrendus tummy, and I am a 38D bra! The lady measured me and declared I was a 40DD, so I whipped off my top and showed her my 3 month old 40D that was falling off me it was so lose, so we then found out by trial and error that I was a 38D. So...how can I be a size 16 (admitedly Monsoon size 16)??? Especially since peeps on here, have much smaller BMIs and are also a size 16!
    Anyway, I will be posting photos in the next few days of me in my new outfits.

    Love ya peeps,

    Guen

    Guenevere I would say monsoon and m&s are the real size 16, all the other shops skimp on material. You must just think your bigger than you are. Embrace it its awesome :D x
