    Really interested to know what dress size you are if you're 5"8-5"9 and around 175lbs. asking because I've never been smaller than a 16 and never been 175lbs, so am hoping I'll be a 12/14 when I get to target :)

    I was a size 16 at that weight, but I think either clothes sizes have changed or I'm a funny shape as the sizes people say they are at certain weights is vastly different ti what sizes I was at those weights!

    It's really hard to say as people of the same height report vastly different sizes at the same weight.

    I'm 5'9 and get into most (though not all) size 12 at my current 157lb weight.

    I know that at 183lbs I was a 14, so hoping that an 8lb difference might bring me down to a 12. All through my teens and adult life (just turned 20) I'be been a size 16/18 :( Only got down that low because I was really ill for a couple of months.

    I'm 5ft 8 exactly and I was a size 14 at that weight. Mind you, as someone has already said, I depends on your individual shape and also where you shop. I'm a 10/ 12 now in most places but some shops come up so damn small (such as Primark) that I would still be a bigger size in their clothes.

    Good luck and well done so far! You've done really well :)

    I'm 5'8" & 14st 4.5lbs at the minute & wear a 16 at the minute though have a few 14's as well. I guess its all down to body shape as its interesting to see the variations in clothes size from people of the same height & weight. I'm hoping that I'll get down to a 12 but will be surprised if I drop below that.

    Hi Sheepy

    I became a size 12 at around 11.5 stone though my bottom half it was a bit before that. Hope that helps. I have always been bigger on the top and have a broad back ( I can't blame it on big boobs anymore cos since weight loss they look like a spaniels' ears!)
