    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".

    thanks for all your help. i'm 5 foot 4 and my bmi is 32.5 at the min so i reckon i'll be a 16 by bmi 30 at the most as my 18's are already getting loose. X x x

    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?
