    I'm 5'4'' - what weight do think I need to be to get into a size 18?

    I went shopping today and bought this lovely suit in the sales. It was a bargain but I could only get it in size 18. Problem is I'm a tight size 22 at the moment!!

    Hi I'm size 18, 5' 8" tall and weigh 14.1. Depending on label I can also wear a size 16. Hope your outfit fits soon.

    5ft 4" size 18 at just under 16st. I think it all depends on your build rather than your weight hun.

    I am 5' 4" small frame and I was a size 18 bottom and 20 top from 15st. down to 13st. 5lb. then they started getting too big.

    12st. 11lb on my own scales first thing in the morning...Most all my size 18 tops fit now and squeezing into a size 16 jeans...just about... not comfortable enough to wear, need another one or two pounds off.

    Thanks for all your replies. I've a bit of a way to go then! Lovely suit though so I'll just have to make sure I stick to the diet to make sure I can wear it.

    I'm very hourglass (my bust and hip measurements are only 1 inch apart!) so I go right in in the middle so I tend to get into smaller sizes quicker than people with a different body shape.

    This poses a good question really, about where we all carry our excess weight. Mine is on my bum/hips/thighs. I have a small waist, which only accentuates my large bum.
    In answer to the question, when I am around 14 stone I am in an 18 (or was pre having a baby, been a while since an 18 has gone over my knees lol).
    At my lowest weight of 11.5 stone (8 years ago) I was a small 16 bottom and a 14 top, with a lovely flat tummy. Oh, the memories....
    That's what I am hoping for again. A 14 all over would be grand, but if I can't do it, then a 14-16 is perfect for my build.

    I'm 5 ft 4, weigh 15 1/2 stone & a comfy size 18 from most shops. It does depend on your build though. Stick with the diet & keep trying the suit on, it will fit before you know it xx
