    wow - clearly difference in height distributes the weight differently - how bizarre that there can be such a difference in it (but then again, different shops have different size 16s too!).

    I'm constantly surprised watching programmes on telly people who weigh much more than me being the same size or people weighing much less than me being bigger, you soon learn to try on in different shops hee hee xx

    My great tip mellie is get to a charity shop, buy some smaller sizes then keep trying them on every week it's amazing how they soon fit and it doesnt' cost loads either. I get great per una jeans (they're always a great fit) for about three or four pounds!!!

    yes but don't do what I did - bought a LOVELY pair of ralph lauren work trousers in chocolate brown. The label the charity shop put on it said size 14 so I thought, fair enough, I'll fit them at some point . Got them home and the label inside said size 4. No idea if that is a US size 4 (and hence a real size 8) or a size 4 in terms of 1, 2, 3, 4 (for being the largest available). So i put one leg in .... half way up the thigh. Don't think I'll ever fit them so they must be a size 8. Anyone want them (for cost of postage)?

    I find Dorothy Perkins sizes are generous as are monsoon and Tescos are really good if you don't want to spend a lot on clothes while you are still shrinking. I can actually get into a pair of size 16 jeans I got from Tescos even now, although they are very tight (don't have to lie down to do them up though).

    Hi Mellie

    Can't remember exact weights but I did find when I was bigger I needed to lose more weight to drop a dress size, as I got smaller I went down the sizes alot quicker. Someone once posted about the Ed principle (sorry can't remember who), think of yourself as a kitchen roll and every sheet as 1lb, when you first start one sheet only goes a small way round the roll, but as the roll gets smaller each sheet wraps further round it until it goes round a couple of times, ie the smaller you get the more noticeable the lbs you lose are, if you see what I mean!

    That explains why people used to stay that they'd put on a few lbs and they could really feel it and I would go up half a stone before I noticed!

    I'm 5ft 3 and still a 16 in places on top - until I get round to the reduction surgery!!

    I've just bought myself a size 16 pair of jeans from matalan and they fit :) I'm 5ft 8 and currently weigh 13st. they're a little tight around the waist, but not too bad.. but my old 18's were so huge on me that I'm putting up with the tightness!!
    most of my size 16 skirts (which I already had) fit really nicely as well!
