i think im a 16, which is good as a few months ago i was a 20!! my new size 16 stuff from next was a bit snug when i first got it a few weeks ago but is feeling looser now so am hoping to be in a 14 by my sisters birthday (25th of this month) wish me luck!!!

oh, my boobs are still a 20 or bigger which makes shopping for nice tops and dresses difficult!!

Size 14, 5ft 9" and it's a constant battle to stay at this size hmm

oh, also dependent on item. I got skinny hips so 6/8 trousers, big norks, so a 8/10 on topgrin

oh AAW same problem as me!!! if you can afford it bravissimo sell fitted dresses and tops especially for amply 'gifted' girls grin but they are out of my price range atm!! i stick to stretchy materials where i can get away with it! fitted stuff fits on boobs but looks like a tent around my middle!!

You know micci, I took my measurements this week to check against a couple of online size guides - my waist appears to be two full dress sizes smaller than my hips and bust. Weird or what. Don't they cater for us hourglass types any more?

5ft7 size 14/16 34G norks.
am trying to get to a 12

girlandboy Wed 02-Jul-08 10:26:09

5ft 10 and a size 12/14 depending on what shop I am in; and very long legs, so most things look too short (don't like showing my knees!)

wessexgirl Wed 02-Jul-08 10:27:02

Recently 16, now 14, aiming for pre-pregnancy 12.

micci25 Wed 02-Jul-08 10:27:25

i know its a bit silly isnt it! i ordered a lovley top from next not realsing it was cotton but ordered in a size bigger anyway because of the style of the top i didnt want boobs hanging out!!! i couldnt get the zip (started just below the bust)even a little way up!!! ordered in two sizes bigger got the zip just less than halfway, but already looked silly around my waist!!

i had to send it back and get one with lycra in instead sad

AnAngelWithin Wed 02-Jul-08 10:27:34

i was looking at those the other day micci and wondered if they really were any good!! i am only 5ft 4 as well which is a right pain! i used to buy stretcy things but they tend to grip too hard to my muffin top!!

JacobsPrincess Wed 02-Jul-08 10:27:39

Massive norks mean I need a 22 top, but total lack of arse and thigh mean a 16 waist with industrial belting to keep trousers up. Thank God I've got a tummy!! hmm
Try buying a dress for that!
(actually, wrap dresses in a jersey material are about the only think that works)
