Inspired by my mini Sainsbury’s TU clothing rant (size too big)- what UK clothes size (May differ ‘vanity sizing’ shops and ‘teenage’ shop) would you expect this person to wear?

5ft5 8 stone 5lbs

I know it’s a ‘guessing game’ doesn’t account for where weight stored etc. But I’d be interested in getting a general idea of what people thought

Of course being particularly generously endowed in one area could make a difference.

Size 8, I guess? Maybe a size 6 if the fit is generous.

8 or 10 depending on the person's shape.

Size 6. But as above depends where the weight is sitting. Although at 5ft 5 and less than 8 and a half stone I'd say this person is quite slim and doesn't have weight "sitting"

6 or an 8 depending. I am cheating as this matches my dd.
Saying that you never know with sizes, she has some jeans shorts that are a 12. A skirt xs. Most things an 8 or a small, but is 18 so mostly likes things big.

worldsworststepfordwife Wed 03-Jun-20 07:37:07

8 or occasional vanity sized 6

I’d guess a small size 8

I’m 5’9, 10st 9lbs and wear a pretty comfortable size 10

When I weighed that much I was a size 6/8. Those were the dayssad

6-8. That is very slim.
