Size 2- but lumpy

I am 5'2 and weigh 112 lbs. Going by the statistics, I should have no worry. In reality, by body fat is very visible on the tummy and on outer thighs and buttock.
The lumps are so visible when I wear yoga pants especially. It happens with some cuts of jeans and skirts. The 2 huge lump of fats just protrude out and the overall shilouete is not nice. I do not fit bigger size they do not fit my waist. Mine is a case of small waist but big, lumpy hip.
Any one has the same problem?

Some cellulite is genetic. Clothing sizes are generic -- everyone's body size is different so they can't fit everyone properly. My advice (which is what I do), is buy the bigger size and get the waist taken in. It doesn't cost that much and you'll feel more confident/comfortable. Also if you don't already, you might want to try working out with weights or talking to a personal trainer and having him/her set up a routine for you.

I know exacly how you feel. I'm actually the same height/weight as you! My problem is that i have small narrow hips, which makes me have love handles no matter what I do. I also wear size 0-2 because of my small hips. But I still can't get the sleek look on the side because my stomach is not as narrow as my hips. My husband says I'm not fat, it's just my hips are small, but it's really hard when you can't wear some tight fitted clothing because it looks like you have fat bulging out of your pants. And I do lift weight, and cardio/abs etc. My stomach even has some definition so I don't think it's so much that I have too much fat as it is my body shape. If you find something that works, please let me know.

I'm the same way...size 0-2 but lumpy belly! the thing that has worked the best for me is pilates. Honestly I used to do a billion crunches...I even had a personal trainer for a little but nothing worked... and now I've increased my cardio and I do the pilates plank exercise( I'm sure you can find it online....basically its just the push up position), and I'm seeing results like never before! good luck!

I am a similar size and have always carried weight on my lower belly. I have found that concentrating on sucking in my abs during walking and running has really helped flatten that area out, but there is still some awkward skin there. I use Dove firming cream and feel like it makes a slight difference.

Im NOT a size two but I understand what you mean....I think your focus needs to be toning, not weight loss. I would like to lose a little more weight first, but then I want to do the same thing. As you can see from the "height/weight/size" posting, those stats don't seem to matter! :) But I liked your post, made me stop hating and being jealous of anyone who was a size two!!! (Just kidding!)
