    I know we are all different, and shop sizes vary a lot, but Im really interested in approximately what dress size people are at what weight.

    Im average height - 5'6 and I can't wait to be able to buy clothes from normal shops, in their normal ranges. What kind of weight are people when they can fit comfotably in a size 20? I'm sure Next goes up to this size.

    Hi Angel

    Im 5'7 and I think Im one of those lucky people that carry weight quite well, as Im 14 stones but can comfortably wear a size 16 and some size 14's.

    When I started out I was 18 stone 1lb, and I was a 20/22.

    Next does go up to a 22 I think.

    Hope that helps.

    sizing is weird, if you ever shop in places like Primark ( sorry to bring the tone down) their sizes are really small so when they say 18 take that to mean 16 and so on.
    I am 5"6 and now can wear a size 18 in most places but did fit into a pair of jeans from MK1 that are a 16 - my happiest moment so far until my daughter mentioned MK1 sizes were cut bigger - I could have happily throttled her!!!!

    I think it is very difficult to say what dress size people are at what weight. It depends a lot of how tall you are. For exemp├╝le I have a friend who weighs almost the same like me, but she ist much taller than me. So actually she doesn't really look overweight-I would even say that her weight is perfect compared to her size, but unfortunately I still have to lose quite much weight :-(

    Oi I like Primark!! :D and I find there OVER sized - I supposed it depends where you carry your fat to what size you are. I'm a kinda all over spread kinda thing where as some people get big bums or bellies or legs

    Well I must carry my weight EXTREMELY well! I'm currently 14st 11 (probably less now to be fair as that was last Friday!) and 5ft 4" and I'm a size 16/18 on the bottom and a size 14/16 on the top.

    Suppose I shouldn't moan about that really (despite the fact I would much rather have significantly smaller thighs and calves (where I carry most of my weight sadly) but it would be nice to be the same size top and bottom!

    Oh well - maybe by Christmas my bottom half will have started catching up with my top half - fingers crossed!

    I am 5ft 2ins tall, and am about 13stone 5. I am somewhere between a 16-18. Especially on my bottom half. Saying that, I have on a pair of size 16 trousers today, adn they are hanging off me - I might be able to get into a 14 of this style, but I ahv a pair of 16s at home that fit well, and yet more that I cant even squeeze into.

    Like everyone else has said, I suppose it depends on what shape you are, and where you buy your clothes from!

    Not much help, am I???

    Sooooo jealous SoonToBeGorgeous. I am the same height as you, and just 3lbs heavier and I would say I am a comfortable size 24 - Im just beginning to find things loose round the waist and even bought a pair of size 22 trousers yesterday. I do have a top from Tescos (one of those soft feel jumpers) and its a size 26 and still way too small.

    Thankyou everyone for your answers, and keep them coming - I'm fascinated and its really inspirational for me

    This is a really interesting post!!

    I am 5ft 9" weight pretty even all over!! at the moment before weigh in at about 15st 3-4 maybe!! (fingers crossed!!)

    Got a pair of 14 jeans in new look the other day, high waist band quite flairy, almost fell over in shock!! :eek:

    There a little snug but as i'm on the way down didn't wanna get a 16 as i'm a little strapped.... my 18's fell virtually clean off over ma hips!

    About 2-3 years ago when i was about 11st 10lbs i was in a 10 occasionaly a 12...


    I have always 'weighed' alot heavier than i look, if that makes sense!! Not an excuse or big bone syndrome!! lol :rolleyes:

    Whenever i've been weighed for medicals etc people are always visibly shocked and say i look 2-3 stone lighter than i weigh... this of course is no consilation when you're 17st +

    I once had a nurse march me into a doctors office, whilst they were with a patient!!, and weigh me again coz she thought her scales were wrong... then blurted out - OH YOU ARE 17st 9lbs!! Needless to say i was a tad embarrassed in front of the Doc and the foxy patient with him!!

    Anyone else found this?

    We are all such varied and wonderful shapes!!! :D

    rade, can't say I've had your experience but it made me laugh.

    I'm 5ft 10 (and a half), 15 stone 5lb and size 16 (and 18 too in some things but I'm saying I'm size 16)
