    I remember a lady saying what weight she needed to be to be a certain size...
    I don't know how she worked it out or where she found the info but if someone knows can you please tell me what weight I'd need to be to be a size 14? (I'm 5'5)

    There is no right or wrong answer to that question. Based a person's bone structure/density, muscle weight, etc, it will be different for many people even if they are all 5'5.

    You can probably make a guess for yourself by noting your current dress size and making a goal to be one dress size smaller. Note how many pounds you lost to get to the smaller dress size and that can help you guess how many pounds you need to lose to fit into that 14. Don't forget to take into account that, from one clothing brand to the next, sizes will run small and large. :)

    Good luck!

    at 5ft 8in i need to be 11st 4lb to be a 14, although in certain things i can get away with a 12 and others i need a 16 (like monsoon dresses - states us12 is uk 16 which is rubbish.... it's only 1 size difference so a us12 is a uk14,,,,, rant over :)).

    Hi Ladies --

    Great things is correct -- for the most part the difference in US and UK sizing in clothes for women is a little more than one size. For example: a UK 12 can equal either a US 10 or 8 depending on the design.

    I am about 5'4" -- I carry most of weight in bum and thighs -- and I am wearing a UK 14/16 (which is a US 12/14) depending on how it is made and I weigh about 12 stone. When I have a BMI of 22.5 (9 1/2 stone) I wear a UK 8/10 (a US 6/8).

    Question: KeighleyJoJo2010 -- Why are you aksing about being a Size 14. Do you have something special you want to wear?

    Note: Clothes have been sized up over the years. Vintage clothes are much smaller for the sizes they are marked.

    I have a wedding to go to in aug, and I was thinking about buying my dress now to give me a goal.
    But I have changed my mind I'm just going to lose the what weight I can and buy the dress nearer the time.
