Well, I'm not skinny,buy due to a recent illness I've changed shape. I really don't know what dress size I am. I'm a 35" bust,35" hip and 29" waist. I've trawlled all the size charts and I'm told I'm a size 16! no way! Can anyone tell me what size I should be looking at? I know I'm a bit of an odd shape, but hey, who isn't?

Try 12?

No way 16! Size 10, 12 perhaps I'd say.

Those are my measurements and I wear a size 10, often a size 8 on top in fact.

I've found sizes vary so much,I tried on a Windsmoor skirt ( charity shop) supposedly a 10?? Well, it fell off me,quite literally.Older clothes tend to be sized smaller. I was going to order some clothes online, but I think it's best to brave the shops.

Trt Dressipi - you put your measurements in and they tell you what size you are in different shops.
I'm a 12 in Top Shop, 10 in Oasis & Warehouse and 8 in M&S!!
