What size are you?

I am 5'5 145 which for me equates to a size 7/8 (a little tight) in juniors or a size 9/10 in juniors. Not sure what this is in a "misses" size, but I've seen postere where they are the same weight/height as me but wearing a size 4? I should also mention that I am a 34D.

5'4" about 195 lbs, 38DD, petite frame, wear 18 comfortably/confidently, but fit better into 16 sometimes. when i was 130 lbs, i fit into an 8 almost always, but some things were a 6.

5'6" - 129 lbs wear size 4 pants, size 6 to 8 tops. I'm built a bit like a guy with broad shoulders and narrow hips.

It's interesting how much sizes can vary within the same height/weight range.

5'5'', 165, 14s are frumpy and 12s are tight. when i was in the best shape of my life (exercising 2-3hours per day) i was 125lbs. the 8s were too big and the 6s were too small. 34B when thin, 36B when not-so-thin. and i have absolutely no idea what size i wear on top, but it's usually a size or two smaller than the bottoms.

that's interesting (to me at least!). I am also 5'5" and 165. 12's are frumpy and 10's are tight.

When I was 125, I wore a size 6 or a 4. My chest has gone from 34C to 38D.

i'm 5ft 3in, 165 lbs and wear a size 10 or a 12 usually.

going back to the first poster's question about how someone their size could possibly be a size 4 . .. . .remember ladies that depending on our body shape, as well as build (muscle vs. fat) someone can weight the same or more than you and wear a size or two smaller.

5'5", 170, 36C and a size 12, usually. I won't get much smaller than a 10, just because of the way my shoulders, hips and ribcage are built, plus the fact that I tend to put on muscle.

Too many variables

It depends so much on body composition, (muscle vs.fat), style, quality, etc..

Clothes purchased from different stores will fit and be sized differently. How you are comfortable wearing your clothes will make a difference.

I think there was an earlier thread about differences in sizing by store, designer, even style.

The body fat% is much more important than weight when comparing clothes sizes.

5'1.5", 119 lbs as of today (I've been down to 116 lbs). 34D. Most of my pants are a size 4 short (and still too long!), and some are size 2 short, all from places like Express, Gap, or Ann Taylor Loft. Jeans, who knows, they're all too different. Tops, small or medium. If they're a number, though, it's always an 8 or a 10. No idea why!

Re: being a bigger size on top than on the bottom - You may be longer through the torso, you may have shoulders that are proportionally more broad than your hips, and the size of your chest will also factor into being a bigger size on top than on the bottom - nothing wrong with it, it's just different from the "average" that manufacturers make clothes for. People come in all shapes and sizes, and they're all beautiful in their own way.

5'10" barefoot, 198 pounds, size 14 pants just hang on me, but I haven't been shopping yet for size 12s. in tops, the 12s they sell at Lane Bryant are now getting too big for me. got sized for bras the other day and am now a 38B down from a 42B last time I went bra shopping. bought a pair of gym shoes the other day. is it possible that even my feet are getting smaller?

5'7" 226 lbs, jeans & pants size 18, can wear some xl tops, some L tops. I am long waisted, big boned, and have very large thighs, and calves. So alot of times I have to have the little larger size, so my top covers the top of my jeans, (I don't like fat showing think it is very unattractive)
As for bra size, If you measure and use the charts they supply I would be a 38dd however, That is very tight on, so I tried a 40d, still not exactly fitting good. So I wear my old stan bys of 42C, but do notice the cups are getting a little looser, and I am on the smallest link.

to the 12:11 poster.. yes I do think we loose weight on our feet as well, but shoe manufacturer's are as bad as clothing for inconsistent sizing.

I don't know about you, but my weight is pretty evenly spread out. If you carry your weight around the middle, or have skinnier legs, etc., that'll explain size differences.

I'm usually a 8 in pants, 6 on top, but it varies by brand... I find that more expensive things or things geared toward women in their 40s are often bigger, so i wind up with a 6 pants. Also, I sometimes wear a 4 dress or skirt (since they fit at the waist and not the thigh)

5'5" and 145, 34 b/c (depending on the day), size 8 pants, 6 tops. Sometimes I can wear size 6 pants and a 4 top or dress in misses sizes, but that's usually with more expensive brands with vanity sizing. With junior sizing, I can go up to an 11 easily because the clothes don't have any curves.

I'm 5'3", I weigh 145 and I'm a size 6/8. In Ann Taylor clothes I'm usually a size 6 (a bit tight) and definitely a size 8. I still have a size 10 skirt I used to wear about 10 years ago that does not fit me yet. The only reason I fit into a size 6 is b/c of the recent change in vanity sizing.

Not the Jan 2 posters, but...

So I don't think anyone is in a 'dreamland' as you put it. Size really depends on what brand you're buying.

You are so rude

My point was, size really depend on what brand you're buying. And your shape and where you carry your weight. So an inch or 5 pounds really may not make a difference, depending on your shape, and I can believe those posters.

Why would they lie, and why would you bother making such rude comments? But eeven if they are lying, there is no need to be so testy about it.

It IS Possible to be 5'4 130 and wear a size 5

I've lost about 18lbs and now I am fluctating between 127-130. In the Juniors dept at Macys, I wear a size 5 (some of the pants are even a little big) and can fit into the 3, but it is a little tight. So, it is possible. I think it has to do with how much of your weight is muscle vs fat and how your body is shaped. I have a flat tummy but I have curves and I'm a 34D. The brands I usually fit into those sizes are usually Rampage and XOXO. I am a size 4 in the misses section, but those clothes seem so much older and kind of I stick to the juniors section. Maybe it is vanity sizing, but still....that is my size.

Shape of Clothes

I don't know about you guys, but I have an awful time finding pants that fit. I am 5'5" and weight about 120. I usually buy 4's, but they are often way too big around the waist, but fit (or are sometimes tight) in the thighs.

I am wondering if part of it is that I am a runner. My thighs have definitely gotten bigger since I started running (I currentlt run about 30 miles per week), but they are not out of proportion or anything.

Am I just a freak? I am just so frustrated ever time I try to find pants that will actually fit me without having to wear a belt or have that inattractive "tight thighs" look (which I see a lot and hope I don't look like that!).

To the 3:23 Poster

If you buy in the juniors section particularly....I have been able to find many flattering pants -- either polyester/spandex, cotton/spandex, polyester/spandex/rayon. They are very form fitting and very flattering -- especially the boot cut. My problem area has always been my legs as well.

I have no clue - it depends on the store

I'm 5'4.5 and I weigh 133 right now. I have a very small bone structure (My ethnicity is south indian) and my best weight where I looked nice healthy and my muscle definition showed was 118. That was 20 yrs ago, when I was right out of college.

I look small in clothes - moslty because I know how to dress for my shape. I wear express editor premeire stretch pants and usually a fairly fitted top- old navy tiny tees, Mossimo v-neck junior tees, banana republic fine-gauge knit tees - and this is a good look. It makes me look about 28-30, too, which is neat, considering I'm 41.

However, I do need to lose flab. It's there, even though in some target sizes I'm a 4. For gap, I'm 8.

I'm a 4 up top. I bought a size 2 dres from white house black market, but it had a flared skirt - it was the top part that had to fight great because it would otherwise look bad and reveal everything!

It's vanity sizing that's too blame. If people see my sizes and then see I want to lose weight, I risk being thought of as unhealthy with unhealthy goals - but when you see my in shorts ... you see what i'm talking about.

It depends on the store. I'm 5'7 and 146 lbs... not very athletic or toned build. In juniors I am typically a 9, occasionally an 11. In misses I am usually an 8 but sometimes a 10. I probably more of a "true" 10 but I shop at a lot of stores that definitely have vanity sizing. I don't care about sizes that much anymore but I would like to be permanently in the single digits! What I care about now as far as the "superficial" stuff goes is how I look in a bathing suit!

Oh, and I am a 36C though I can still wear some of my old 36Ds. I lost 30 pounds and went down a cup size.

180 lbs
Size 10 bottoms, or 31/32
Size M or L tops

When i was at my lowest of 167 i fit into a size 6 and 8. I think it was just the pants from this one particular store because i never fit into a size 6 anywhere else. Regardless, i still wear the clothes i bought then (at 167) and they fit fine. They did however fit better when i was 167. On my way down again. My goal is to fit into a size 8 and stay there. I think i can, but i dont know if i will since all these low waist pants sit right on my hip bones, which will obviously not get any smaller. Ok...enough. I dont want to think about it anymore.

what size are you

5'3" chest 34 waist 29 hips 36 132pounds

i wear a size 3,4 or 5 depending on who makes it. can always wear a 4, rarely a 3 and most 5's. I am 40 and have had 3 kids so the fives are iffy because they arent made for women who have had kids, i think. I would still like to lose about 7lbs but I think a 3 is as small as i would ever hips are down to just bone and skin no fat there and i dont think they will fit a smaller size.

I lift weights for an hour a day 3 days a week so I am carrying a lot of muscle. Having lost 168lbs I also deal with lose skin.And the 7lbs i would like to lose is all fat distributed pretty evenly between my upper arms, lower stomach and thighs. I have a medium frame and pretty much an hourglass shape. I always thought you had to have boobs to have that but really it just means you are wider on top and bottom and thinner in the middle and that's me.

my best friend is 5'2" a 38DD and 142lbs, she carries most of her weight in the stomach and she wears an 8 or a 10, huge difference in sizes.

I just lost down to 224 lbs and I am now in XL tops (some at least!) and size 16/18 pants. I am very muscular though. I am able to shop at "normal" stores now. YEAH!

5 foot, 2 inches
Just a hair above 130lbs
Size 10 or 11..

Down from 170lbs and size 13

I would love to be smaller.. I think most of my body fat is in my hip/thighs/lower ab region and I think that'll be the last to go because I've *always* had it.

I have pretty wide hips too and they've always been annoying but I like to think I'll appreciate them more once I lose the rest of this weight.

In response to the 5' 10" commenter I would love to start a group! I am 5' 11" and 206 (I have lost 11 lbs) when I am 185 I am a size 8. I was down to 150 in college for a while and was a size 4. I have a lot of muscle as well.

I would love to start up a group.

I am 5ft 5-1/2 and weigh 140. I typically wear a 6 in pants, and depending on the style of top, a small. However, I have long arms and muscular arms, so if I want something with long sleeves, I have to buy a M, but then it is too large around the midriff. I have also found that sizes have migrated over time. About ten years ago, I probably would have been a 8/10. I came across some old clothes in my closet awhile back and since they were a 6, I tried them on - NO WAY!! There is some play by manufacturers to suit our vanity about sizes and just size them larger. That is part of the reason that "size" really doesn't matter. It's not apples to apples.

Tall girls!!

I saw some of the taller ladies were interested in a tall group for weight loss. I would be very interested in that. Did anyone start a group for that yet?

I'm 5'7", 113 lbs (on average), 32B

I wear between a size 0 and 3 in juniors depending on the store or style of clothing, and an XS or S in tops.

My biggest issue is that I have a large ribcage in proportion to the rest of my body, so certain cuts can look really awkward on me, and tight/stretchy shirts cling too much.

Nobody's perfect.

When I was 175 lbs (my goal weight) I was a size 12 and I just loved the way I looked.

(Some of you girls have a BMI under 18 which is underweight. Are you really here for weight loss?)

Garment sizes may vary depending on many factors, including differences in style, brand, and country of manufacture. Sometimes, people have to experiment with different sizes to find the one that works best for them. suika
