I am 5'6" and when I was 11.7 I was about a 14.

that is probably compeltely no help whatsoever but there you go.

When I was 11 stone 3, bearing in mind I'm 5'2" I was a size 14/16. My mum is about 5'3" or 4" and she was always a size 10 at 8 and a half stone, she's a 12 now and weighs just over 9 stone.

Thanks BBB

so - if 5ft was 16 and 5-6 is 14 I'm guess that 5-4 will be a 15 grin

I'm 5'5" , weigh 11 st and am a v large size 12 , i.e. belly squlches over jeans or a smaller size 14 , some stuff too big. BUT if you go to TK Maxx or other fashion shops I'm probably a size44, all the size 14 jeans don't even get over my thighs.

I am 5.6 and currently weigh too much. 11 st 10lbs. Some times I need a 14, other times it is too big but a 12 a bit too tight and other times a 12 will do. Really, I think a 13 would be better for me.

wildpatch Sun 23-Sep-07 16:35:48

big. when i was 11 4, at 5 2.5 i was a 16.
why are you asking? weight and dress size are not that majorly related. its more to do with shape, fat versus muscle etc. o and shops

InMyHumbleOpinion Sun 23-Sep-07 16:36:38

I was a 14 at that weight, am about 5'3.

splishsplosh Sun 23-Sep-07 16:39:27

Well I'm too embarassed to put my weight down here, but it's lots more than 11.5 stone, I'm 5'6" and a size 16 - I just think my bones and boobs are exceptionally heavy!

dalmatianbabe Sun 23-Sep-07 19:42:39

I'm 5'9" and 11st 7, and I wear 14/16. Seems to follow the pattern of 11 stonish=14/16ish??

I am 5'7", weigh 12 st 4 and am a size 12.
Interesting to see the variants!

toomanydaves Sun 23-Sep-07 20:22:04

I am 5.6, weigh 11.5 and am a 16.

Surfermum Sun 23-Sep-07 20:22:20

I'm 5'4". At 10.5 stone I fit easily into a 12. I'm currently just under 11 and squeezed into the 12's. So I'd say size 14 for 11.5.

That's bottoms. Tops for me are a different story because of my enormous norks.

sarahhal Sun 23-Sep-07 20:22:50

I'm two inches smaller than Spookymadmummy and weigh the same and am a size 16!!! But always a 16 top due to big norks grin

kidsrus Sun 23-Sep-07 20:23:58

18 (big boobs) top 14/16 bottom

oregonianabroad Sun 23-Sep-07 20:25:17

It depends on the shop, doesn't it?

nomoremagnolia Sun 23-Sep-07 20:26:43

I'm 5'5" and 11st7lb and am a size 14. (though when ironing today I found I have some size 10 tops from Next from a few years ago that still fit me, so I'm now convinced that sizes are getting smaller )
