Why is it when someone starts a thread asking 'if your 5'2 how much do you weigh?' Or 'if your 5'2 what dress size are you?' Everyone chimes in even if the question doesn't apply to them?

' I'm 5'8 and wear a size 4'
' I'm 10ft2 and weigh 5 stone'

WHY?! It's no help whatsoever! Ok rant over. grin

I'm 5 foot 2 and weigh 9 stone and wear size 10.

Tru fax.

Lol, because mn attracts some right weirdos who love nothing more than to bang on about how they're 18 feet tall, a size -67 and weigh a horrifying bloaty 17 grammes and anyone who isn't them is a freak! I may be exaggerating but you get my drift.

FlyingElbows haha!!! Yes that's exactly it!

The hey ho doubters get to me.

"You're 5'2, 9 stone 10 and wear a size 12? Really? I'm 7 foot and when I weighed 9 stone 10 I was definitely size 18 but hey-ho.'

A lot of people like to show off about being slim, and since it's not really a socially acceptable thing to do they take the opportunity when it's presented.

The plum I just ate was about 2 inches in diameter.

What I never understand is how one poster can 5ft 2 and 11 stone and be a size 12!

cherrycrumblecustard Tue 17-Jan-17 20:06:23

I'm not far off Navy

DJBaggySmalls Tue 17-Jan-17 20:09:11

Perhaps they wear an outrageous size in hats?

Helloitsme87 Tue 17-Jan-17 20:11:36

I'm 5ft2 I don't know how much I weigh....

MargotsDevil Tue 17-Jan-17 20:16:04

I'm 2 stone heavier than I've ever been before yet am wearing a size smaller than I was at my previous biggest size. I put it down to significant weight loss followed by serious health issues meaning weight all went back on plus more but in different places....

9 st 2 at 5 ft 2 DEFINITELY makes you a size 14. Fact. I refuse to listen to any other opinions on this. If you try to tell me that you are a 10 or a 12 with those stats, you are lying. There is just no way.

Mollyringworm Tue 17-Jan-17 20:25:45

I'm 5'8" and 11 stone and wear a size 10 in m&s, 12 in next and 18 in primark..

For me, I suspect it is a bit of neediness - I just want to be part of the conversation. Sad, I know.

It reminds me of recipe reviews where the person says, "I followed the recipe exactly, but swapped the butter for coconut oil, added a handful of basil, omitted the mushrooms, doubled the chilli and skipped the last step. Wouldn't bother making again"

Emmageddon Tue 17-Jan-17 20:29:24

Oh the stealth boasting of the naturally slender, or newly slim...I would be the same, if only it were true. wink

NavyandWhite Tue 17-Jan-17 20:31:33

How Cherry? I'm 9st 2 and 5ft 2 and a twelve. I suppose it is down to weight distribution grin

SquarePegRoundHole Tue 17-Jan-17 20:33:05

I'm 4ft 14inchs and 63502.9 grams. Gods honest truth grin

HarryPottersMagicWand Tue 17-Jan-17 20:34:56

Uh, YANBU OP. I always think this exact thing, and did today on the thread this is about. grin

I am the height mentioned in that thread, I have no idea how some posters are a stone or 2 more than me and apparently the same size.

derikthesheep Tue 17-Jan-17 20:35:23

Allchatted why not? I'm 5ft 2 and I used to be a size 10 in every shop at 9 stone 2. Now at 10 st 10 I'm a 14. Just to do with weight distribution

tobee Tue 17-Jan-17 20:35:26

I agee with SDT. See what I did there?

StrangeLookingParasite Tue 17-Jan-17 20:37:58

I find it so braggy, all these people telling you how you can't possibly eat/weigh/do that, as if people weren't infinitely variable, and different things work for different people.

No, your experience isn't wide enough to make that statement.
