    This one is for the ladies really. Was just wondering if those of us that are similar in weight are similar in dress size? I am trying to get a rough picture in my mind of when i am going to fit into each dress size? Although I know some of us may weigh the same but be a completely different shape therfore a different dress size, I just thought it would be interesting to see! So I weigh 13st 10lbs and am in a size 20 top and bottoms although I think I may be an 18 on top as I like my tops baggy at the minute :)

    I weigh 13stone 3 and I wear a size 16. When I weighed 11 stone 10 I wore a size 12/14 more a 13 so in between sizes. I'm hoping to get down to 10 stone and wear a comfy size 12
    Hope that helps x

    Thanks stephielou87, that is my main goal also, a comfy 12! I think I may actually be able to fit into an 18 as when I walk a size 20 starts to fall down on me and I have to keep pulling them up- shopping at the weekend it is then! x

    I'm 13 stone 7, wear a size 18 on top (big boobs), size 14 on the bottom! How tall are you though? Obviously someone who is 13 stone and 5 foot will be considerably broader (and so a larger dress size) than someone the same weight who is 6 foot!

    Well that would explain it then as I am 5ft 2!! Reckon it's my huge hips and baby belly that makes me a more larger size also! x

    I am 5ft 4 and weight 12 stone 12lb and I'm currently a 14 in a large majority of shops. Obviously the likes of Topshop (tiny sizes!!!) I am still a 16.

    It all depends on your height and bone structure, so how you carry your weight.

    I am interested to see how this works out for me, so far I have:

    Start: 43.5 (20) 36.0 (18) 46.0 (20) BMI 32.4 Obese *
    0.5 st: 43 (18) 36.0 (18) 44.5 (18) BMI 31.3 Obese
    1.0 st: 42 (18) 36.0 (18) 43.5 (18) BMI 30.2 Obese
    1.5 st: 42 (18) 36.0 (18) 42.75 (16) BMI 29.1 Overweight

    *at my heaviest I was 9 lbs heavier than this but I have no stats. I just wore 'big' sz 18 clothes - I have never bought a sz 20 even though I clearly was that size.

    I am 5'5.75'' so I round that to 5'6'' for BMI purposes.

    When I was 137 lbs - BMI 22.5 - I was a size 8-10 waist and size 12 bust and hips.

    So far it has taken me 1.5 st to drop a dress size - going from a size 18/20 to a size 16/18

    I'm 5'7, 27, and weigh 16 stones 10 pounds and wear a size 20, I usually need a 22 dress, so it doesn't cling to me or so my bum doesn't lift it up lol I can fit into size 18 bottoms but I like my bottoms really loose and baggy, 18's can be clingy on my thighs :S

    I have a nightmare with clothes!

    I'm nearly 5ft 8 my last weigh in was 12st 3lb depending where I shop to what size I am!? I still don't know!!

    Top 12/14 depending on where
    Bottom 14 now but I still can't fit in certain. 14s all depends on the style.

    At the minute there is nothing I like in the shops so haven't really tried much on since losing just over 2 stones so I'm not really much help!! Sorry! I've always been out of proportion so I don't think I'll never end up one size all over!!

    I'm 5ft 9, weigh 18st 2lbs and am currently in size 22 bottoms, but they're loose, some 20s fit. Tops vary from 16 to 20.
