Inspired by the 5'7 thread, i was about to add to it, but I am 5'8 (nearly!)

I was thinking about weights and sizes and i thought it would be interesting to see where people are? - i had to look up my weight in kilos so if you could do both that would be great

I'm 5'8 - currently about 13st 1lb (83 kilos) and i take a 14 in Next jeans, but cant fit in 16 jeans at primark - tops mostly size 14

I'm 5ft 10 currently 10st 13lb (after losing 6 stone!) and wear a 12 on top 14 in bottoms.

I'm 5'4'' and around 11 stone, I seem to be a 14 in most clothes, before xmas I was getting into some 12s but a few mince pies later that seems to be a distant memory!

DefiniteMaybe Sun 10-Jan-16 09:00:55

Oh and according to Google that's 69.4kg

Breasts disproportionate to rest of body so I look quite frumpy up top

Im 5'8 and approx 12 stone 10. I get in a 14 in most places.

I'm only just 5'3" and I weigh around 10st. I'm very pear shaped so I'm generally a 10 on top and a 12 below. I should be about half a stone lighter but it's doesn't make a huge difference to my dress size when I am.

I have proportionally big legs. I think I carry most of my weight there. I hate it but at least it's relatively easy to hide legs.

CallieTorres Sun 10-Jan-16 09:28:06

Savagebeauty - thats really interesting, you are lighter than me, taller than me, and wear bigger clothes (on top)

LoadsaBlusher Sun 10-Jan-16 09:28:07

9 stone
Size 8 /10 depending on shops
I'm about 32DD/E depending on bra.
Most of my coats and jackets are size 8 as Im quite small shouldered too.

Some brands are ridiculously sized , in Tesco Super Skinny Jeans the size 8 is loose, I could probably size down to a 6.
I find Topshop/ River Island/ Asos true to size .

dementedma Sun 10-Jan-16 09:30:30

5 foot 7
11 stone 6.

Size 14 or 16.

Donge13 Sun 10-Jan-16 09:33:35

5 foot 5
12 stone 4 pounds
Size 16

Savagebeauty Sun 10-Jan-16 09:36:35

Callie I have E cup boobs and find so many tops are tight across my back. I have no hips. And 35 inch inside legs.
Dresses are usually a no no as a the hips in a 16 are massive.
But as always it depends on the brand. A Mint Velvet 14 top is fine.

justjuanmorebeer Sun 10-Jan-16 09:38:13

5 ft 1
8 stone - 8 stone 6 depending on the day
Size 8 top and 10 bottom. 28 waist jeans.
30 D bra.

JimmyGreavesMoustache Sun 10-Jan-16 09:39:50

depressingly, 12st 2 currently
12-14 tops and dresses
16 bottoms

wide pelvis so have never worn less than a 14 in trousers, even when about 9st 12 as a student. Small boobs though so can would be wearing size 10 tops when thinner.

CwtchMeQuick Sun 10-Jan-16 09:54:11

Currently 9 stone 8, I was 10 stone 4 a couple of months ago. I want to settle at around 9 stone 4
I wear size 8/10 depending on the shop
Bra size 32D

CallieTorres Sun 10-Jan-16 10:01:33

I'm a 34D = i put on fat all over my body, i think i am very northern and use it for insulation, more than a person from a hotter climate, who would store on hips & bums

PUGaLUGS Sun 10-Jan-16 10:05:01


8st 21b

Depends where I shop. Sometimes 6, 8 or 10.

RVPisnomore Sun 10-Jan-16 10:10:06

5ft 2
Size 6 or 8 depending where I shop

IjonTichy Sun 10-Jan-16 10:11:06

Currently 11st post xmas, on my way to 10st 7lb (ideal 'happy' weight)

10 or 12 up top (wear 32dd), size 14 in trousers - of course these never fit round the waist but can't squeeze my hips into a 12. Am a 12 or even a 10 in dresses, depending on the cut.

GrouchyKiwi Sun 10-Jan-16 10:11:19

5'8", 10.2 st. I wear a size 10 pretty much everywhere, though like to get bigger cardigans and jumpers for Winter so I can put layers underneath.

I think my bra size is wrong, but I'm pregnant so not bothering with it right now.

pollylovespie Sun 10-Jan-16 10:18:07

5'3", currently 13 st which is the heaviest I've been, and my 16s are getting tight. Usually weigh 11.5-12 st and 16 on top, 14/16 on bottom (apple shape). Lightest I've been is 9.5 stone and I was still a 14- broad back, big bobs and no waist!
