When you lose a dress size ?

Yeah I'd say about a stone and half, that was just the case for me, guess it different for different people cos people could lose weight in different areas first etc, I dunoo


I want to be fitter again
It really does depend where you lose weight from. The inches fell from my hips for the first stone but my waist remained the same. So at 10 stone I was still a size 16. Now at 9stone 11 i can just fit into 14s. However my daughter who weighs 10 stone 8 is in size 12 s now X


Can't w8 2 b "Dr.WMBB" :)
i had to lose 10lbs to drop a dress size it depends on your body shape, im pretty even shaped and hour glass so the weight when i lost it , came off everywhere so i dropped a dress size quicker i guess.

i started off in size 18/20 on bottom and 16/18 on top ... now i'm a 16 on the bottom, and a 12/14 on top! and that's nearly 3 stone down, think somewhere someone said it's on average 1 stone 5lbs to a dress size... but like others have already said it's down to the individual and your body shape :)
Ive lost 26 pounds and gone down about one and a half dress sizes I reckon... Was 16/18 now i am a proper size 14 at 12.2 stones ish. Saying that last time I was 11 stone I could buy 10/12's so all depends on shape and height. My big boobs account for about a stone of my weight! My poor back! x
This dress size to weight thingy always bugs me.

When you read in a slimming magazine "gorgeous Sally now weighs 11 stone and comfortably slips into her size 10 jeans" :eek: I'm thinking... how come Gorgeous Sally, who's 5 foot nothing, is a size 10 at 11 stone?? When I know for a fact I'm 5'9" and at 11 stone I'll be a size 14!!!!!!

Admitedly I'm pear shaped but........ :mad:
