    I know this varies from person to person but I just want a rough Idea of how much more weight i'll need off to be a size 16. My 18's are getting a bit loose now. X x x

    Hi Jen,
    I was a size 16 when I started, my BMI was 28.7. But it does depend on your height as well. But if you aim for around 28 - 29 BMI you should be about right!
    Good luck

    Hi,
    When i joined SW last year they said 10lbs was about a dress size, but everone is different, and it depends whether you're a small 16 or comfortable 16 etc. Hope this gives you something to aim for. When i was a 16 my bmi was 31, and i'm 5'4".

    Yep, I'm also 5' 2" and BMI was 30 at size 16, so your guess is probably spot on, Jen.

    My BMI is 30 and i'm a loose 16 bottom and 14 top. I'm 5"7 (nearly 5"8 actually but BMI is based on 5"7).

    What BMI are people at size 14?
