OK, yes, inspired by the 5'8" weight thread, but I am curious to know if I have a freakishly large build for my height. I am 5'8", 13 stone 2 lbs (but loosing, aiming at 12 stone) and have big, broad size 8-9 feet. At my fattest, they were bigger than a 9. I can now pretty much rely on generous high street size 8s - M&S, White Stu,ff (and Land's end), also DM, Clark's but post 2 babies my feet ain't getting any narrower.

Just had a baby 3 weeks ago and when preg I needed to wear some size 6's. Think I am mostly back to 5's, but not too sure yet. I seem to have small feet for my height then!! Hoping to get the weight down to ten stone, feel much better then

Pochemuchka Fri 23-Nov-12 19:44:18

Usually weigh around 60kg but am very pregnant and have no idea how much I weigh at the moment

Happiestinwellybobs Fri 23-Nov-12 19:46:33

I have trotters, not feet.

JudeFawley Fri 23-Nov-12 20:28:11

FairPhyllis Fri 23-Nov-12 20:33:23

MrsBungleBear Fri 23-Nov-12 20:39:32

I am 5'9 and have size 7 feet. Used to be a 6 until pregnant but they seemed to grow then and never went back.

shock at the 5'8/9 ers with size 3 feet! I had thought mine were quite small at a 6!

jumpinghoops Fri 23-Nov-12 20:43:30

5'8, usually 9 stone 12 (pre-pregnancy), feet 5-6.

ariadneoliver Fri 23-Nov-12 20:52:41

5ft 8 ins and 9 stone 12, my feet are 7.5 or 8 depending on the make and style. I have lost quite a lot of weight recently and my feet are definitely narrower so more 7.5's now fit me than before.

BigBoPeep Fri 23-Nov-12 21:16:09

12st6 and losing - aiming for 12st

BUT, my two sisters are 5ft10 and 5ft11 and both have smaller feet than me hmm and my mother in law is 5ft6ish i think and has sz 8s....

puggirl Fri 23-Nov-12 21:21:43

5'10" and size 6 1/2. The cruel hand of fate dealt me a huge arse and relatively small feet.

5'11 and a size 8 wide, same size as I was at 11!

auldspinster Sat 24-Nov-12 02:25:07

5ft 8 with wide size 42, pretty hefty.

howdoo Sat 24-Nov-12 02:36:14

5ft 10, around 10st 5lb and a size 6.5/7 feet - used to be a 6 but then I had babies and, like they say, they never went back down!

newyearnewattitude Sat 24-Nov-12 08:55:16

5ft6, size 9 feet (10 if they are girly/pointy)

Currently 15st and a size 16... Want to get down to size 12-14 and about 11 stone,..

I have huge hands too! :-D

Got size 8-9 feet by age 16....

Bonsoir Sat 24-Nov-12 09:09:17

I am 1m73, 58 kgs and have size 39 feet (well, they vary between 38.5 for summer sandals and 40 for winter boots).

OP we are very similar.

Size 8 feet but very narrow.

Mine feel ridiculously long compared to my height.

RooneyMara Sat 24-Nov-12 09:23:48

I'm 5ft7, and my feet have been a size 8 since early teens (7 when I started secondary and I was only about 4ft11 then!)

So now the shops call a 42 a 9, and that means sometimes i'm a 9 I suppose but always a 41 or 42.

RooneyMara Sat 24-Nov-12 09:25:29

Mine are fairly wide as well, not excessively but not 'narrow' for sure. I am very proud of my well proportioned feet though my art teacher once looked down at them (no shoes in art room, I was a hippy) and said 'My God, you have huge feet!' grin

I weigh around 55-60kg btw (8 1/2-9 1/2ish stone) when not preggers.

trikken Sat 24-Nov-12 09:27:56

5'11 and have size 9-10's here. it is a bit of a nightmare shoe shopping.

yani Sat 24-Nov-12 09:29:28

5'9. 10.5 stone. Size 7 feet.
Narrow heal, yeti style toes. Width not hair!

Thistledew Sat 24-Nov-12 09:32:01

Shoe size 5 or 6 dependant on shop/brand.

MamaGeekChic Sat 24-Nov-12 09:38:48

5ft 8/9, 12st, size 6 feet

ThisIsMummyPig Sat 24-Nov-12 09:41:10

5'9 1/2! Size 8s - actually mens size 8s fit me better because they are bigger, but that's only any good for trainers.

5"8' here too with size 8 narrow feet that are usually flopping around inside shoes as width seems to increase with size?!
blushing my best friend is a petite 5"3' with size 8 feet so maybe you should swap!

unillustratedmum Sat 24-Nov-12 09:53:25

5'9", 11.5 stone (and losing) size 6 feet, size 18 top (much to my husband's delight) and size 12 bottom with very slim legs and hips and little bum.

polyhymnia Sat 24-Nov-12 11:22:28

5'9'' and have Size 41 feet. That usually means 7 and a half in UK sizes, though I take 8 in a few brands, eg Boden.

I'm 5'9", 12 st & size 7-8 but with very narrow ankles that make me wobble precariously in any kind of heel.

Lizzylou Sat 24-Nov-12 11:31:19

Am 5ft 9", size 8 feet, size 14 clothes. Am broad of hip and back, long legs, big boobs. Bit more kettlecise and spinning and I could be a defined hourglass again.

frantic51 Sat 24-Nov-12 11:33:23

I'm 5'8" feet size 7 in length but so wide they are practically square! Usually end up buying size 9 wide fitting. So wish I could find pretty/elegant shoes! sad

5 11, size 10-11 feet, but really narrow. V jealous of all the size 8s!

Faxthatpam Sat 24-Nov-12 11:50:52

I'm 5'8" size 6-7 feet (was 5.5 - 6 pre 4 DCs). Am classic apple - size 16 top, size 12 bottom, though aiming for 14/10. Long slim legs and small hips but people ask if I'm pregnant quite often sad / angry !

Highanddry Sat 24-Nov-12 22:31:15

5'11", 12 st and size 8 feet. Really pleased to be able to get high street shoes, if they ever have 8's in stock. Size 14 since I was about 18 years old. Think my build would look strange much lighter.

hellymelly Sat 24-Nov-12 22:36:47

Just under five foot eight. A bit over 10 stone which is at least a stone over my "proper" weight. Size 5 feet. Or 5.5 shoes sometimes as my feet are wide.

darksideofthemooncup Sat 24-Nov-12 22:41:36

I am 5'10'' and a size 8 or 9 depending on how fat I am. My neighbour can't be much more than 5' tall and very slim but she also has size 8 feet.

steppemum Sat 24-Nov-12 22:53:37

I am 5' 81/2 ''

size 10 feet

Nice to see some other size 10s out there, maybe we shoudl start a little quiche!!

So, size 10s where do you buy your shoes?

steppemum Sat 24-Nov-12 23:28:05

don't tell me you have all gone to bed, I'll have to start a thread about it tomorrow grin

(blatant thread hijack)

hortensemancini Sat 24-Nov-12 23:38:48

5' 7" and size 42 feet since I was about 15.

I've grown to love my feet - I see them as long, rather than big, and I keep them nicely pedicured with an interesting colour on the toes, like seagreen or bronze. They're the one bit of me that doesn't put on weight and is always roughly the same size...

bigTillyMint Sun 25-Nov-12 10:29:48

5'8", size 6 feet. Don't know what I weigh ATM, but am currently a size 12.

5'9-and-a-bit", and I have size 9 feet. Not telling you my weight but it's a good 4 stone more than it should be... Pre-Dc I used to wear 8's (but they were uncomfortable until they wore in, so I guess I was probably more a 8.5) I'm quite irked that now it's fairly easy to buy that size, they don't fit!

shadesofblue Sun 25-Nov-12 11:33:09

MamaChocaholic me too, only wide rather than narrow. Feel v depressed around shoe-buying time normally just go for trainers again.

toffeefee Sun 25-Nov-12 17:11:10

5' 10" with size 6 feet.

I have 3 friend with size 8 feet. One is about 5' 8", the other 2 are around 5' 6". Also a girl I went to school with had size 9 feet and she couldn't have been more than 5' 6".
