... from different shops including M&S, Next, Tesco, Sainsburys and Very, so not just a fluke of sizing.

How much would you assume I weigh? Because I think it’s all completely wrong. BMI as well.

What would you estimate?

Around 10.5 stone? I'm 5'2 and a 12 at around that weight

Furx Tue 19-Jun-18 21:45:20

Yup. Me too.

But it really looks like I do need to lose a little weight or possibly tone up. I don’t carry the extra very well compared to some people

Im 11st 8lb a size 12 and 5'2" blush

Im 5,2 12 stone and size 14/16 depends on stores

Anditstartsagain Tue 19-Jun-18 21:47:26

I'm 5"2 and a 12/14 depending on shop I weigh 11.8. My mums the same height and clothes size and weighs 10.5 I look smaller than her.

I've always been heavy for my size even my gp told me to ignore my bmi as I'm very healthy though I could still lose a stone.

I'm 5ft 4, 9 stone 12, and firmly a 12. So I think you are somewhere between 9 1/2 and 10 1/2 stone.

I don't know but you must have really big feet.

user1471459936 Tue 19-Jun-18 21:48:55

10 stone unless you were stretchy clothes. What are your actual measurements?

TheGhostsOfPresidentsYetToCome Tue 19-Jun-18 21:49:46

I’m 5’3”, size 12 and I weigh 12st. I’m quite muscular though and have massive boobs.

9.5 - 10.5 st?

TokenBritPoshOfCourse Tue 19-Jun-18 21:50:39

Lots of us in the same range then!


I’ve lost three stone so I wasn’t sure if I was having a bit of reverse dysmorphia because I don’t look like I would think 11.5stone looks. My BMI is 28!

My sister is 5’2 and eight stone and she looks much chunkier than I do.

When I was young and skinny I was 9.5stone and was all ribs and shoulder blades. I think I must have bones made of concrete.

OutsideContextProblem Tue 19-Jun-18 21:50:44

From those shops I’d estimate 10.5 stone and therefore a shade overweight.

Canshopwillshop Tue 19-Jun-18 21:51:05

10 stone 3 - I’m same height as you and a 10/12.

TokenBritPoshOfCourse Tue 19-Jun-18 21:53:05

I was 10.5stone when I got married and was a size 10.

I could happily lose another stone but I’m not trying overly hard and I like my shape. It’s just the numbers on the dial that are messing with my head though.

Ducksinarow1 Tue 19-Jun-18 21:53:08

I'm 10st 2, 5'8" and also a 12. So I would have said about 9st

BrazzleDazzleDay Tue 19-Jun-18 21:54:12

I doubt it very much.

DextroDependant Tue 19-Jun-18 21:55:06

Oh I was going to guess 10st.

Funny you mention about your sister. My sister is a size 6 - 8 weighs 7st 10lb but is totally wobbly, thighs and belly. You wouldn't guess she is so light. It's bizarre.

NotMeNoNo Tue 19-Jun-18 21:55:40

I'm the same and weigh 10st 3lb. The Bmi 25 limit is, 9st 12 isn't it?

TokenBritPoshOfCourse Tue 19-Jun-18 21:56:42

Honestly she does, we both laugh about it (up until recently I was much bigger than her).

She’s a normal size for herself at around 7 stone. Her bones are filled with air.

Oh, I’ve just realised I said she’s 5’2. She’s 5’ even. It’s my daughter who’s 5’2!

Foodylicious Tue 19-Jun-18 21:57:01

I'm 5ft 2
11.5 st has me at size 14-16
9.5 a size 12
8.5 stone has me at size 10.

Ginspiration Tue 19-Jun-18 21:57:02

I lost 2st too, definitely a solid 12 now but muscular with huge boobs!

Branleuse Tue 19-Jun-18 21:57:18

I'm about 10 stone, 5ft 6 and about a size 12-14, so I'd say about 9stone for you?

user1471459936 Tue 19-Jun-18 21:57:41

But what are your actual measurements? Waist to hip ratio?

PhyllisWig Tue 19-Jun-18 21:57:51

My height and size and I'm 10 and a half too. I'm probably a bit closer to the 14 than the 12.

So a bit overweight and this is visible on my thighs especially. I'm an hourglass/pear shape and on a good day my waist is around 27 inches but my hips are around 40 inches and my tits are around 38/39.

According to the M&S measurement guide I just checked this has me at a 10 for waist and slap bang between 12 and 14 for hips and bust.
