Women, 5'6", I have a question for you.

Quote  |  Reply

Hey there. So, I am 5'6", small frame. I'm a size 14 now, and I want to be an 8 or 10. I was just wondering. You other 5'6", small frame ladies: Around how much did/do you weight at size 8?

I know it won't necessarily be the same from everyone, but I'd like to get a general idea.

Thanks! Embarassed

I am 5'5" with a small frame and when I was a size 8 I weighted about 140-145.  Unfortunately I blew that after I found my wonderful husband but I will soon get back to it.  Hope that helps! Smile

Hi victorechka,

I'm 5"6 and currently wear an 8 (sometimes a 6 if its a bigger cut) and I weigh 154.

I'm a medium frame (so not big boned neither petite).

Hope that helps.
I'm a little under 5'6" with a very small frame.  I wear size 8's at about 125 to 130.  When I was younger, I probably wore 8's at more like 130 to 135.  

I'm a measley 5'5", medium frame; when I was a size 8 I'd estimate i was 145 pounds or so.

I'm 5'6 with a medium frame. I wear a size 10 right now and weigh 140. I assume I'll be a size 8 when I weigh 130 or so.

I'm 5'6 with a medium frame, and I believe I was 145-150 when I was a size 8, now I'm 130-135 at a size 4...it really depends on the store though.

I agree with misspriss316, it really does depend on the store.

I am 5'6", small frame, and when I was in late teens/early twenties, I wore a size 8 at roughly 125 pds. Then they went and changed the sizes. I weigh a few pounds less now, but wear anything from a size 0-4, depending on where I get it from.

Keep in mind that your body shape (pear, hourglass, etc) will also determine what size you wear at any given weight.

I started wearing size 8 around the 150 lb mark.

I'm 5'6 and I was probably about 155.  I had decent muscle mass tho.
5' 6", at 132 ish I wore a size eight.

Depends on the store and the age of the clothes for that matter.  Vanity sizing is all the rage lately. 


I had some 8s I could fit into when I weighed anywhere from 145-159.

My guess is I'm currently an 8 in 1970s sizes, but at Target the 6s are loose on me.  I'm 130 this morning (yeah!  new low!).

I weigh 139 pounds and wear a size 8.  I am 5'6".

I'm 5'6", size 8, weigh 153

It depends on the brand.  I'm ~130 now, and wear size 8 from The Limited.  However, my Banana Republic 8's are WAY too big.  I think I was fitting into BR and Ann Taylor 8's when I was around 140-5 (but those brands definatley have vanity sizing).
To be noted, I'm very bottom heavy, so that skews things a bit.  My dress size is more like a 4.

I weigh 145 - 148, have a medium frame and wear an eight or a big six.

I'm 5'6" and wear size 8 bottoms at 120 lbs. One size smaller tops, though (boobs where are you? Embarassed)

I think it all depends on your body type and muscle mass and stuff. I was about 140 when I was in an 8 and I'm 5'6", but I have no ass and a big gut.

Ah....good memories, those size 8 jeans....can't wait to get back into those.

I'm about 5'5.5 and I usually wear 8's...sometimes 6's.  I bounce around between 130-136.

Also at stores aimed for young adults, sizes are different than stores selling to middle aged adults. And you have to take vanity sizing into consideration. Gap/Old Navy sizes tend to run big. At 150/155 I was a 6 at the Gap. I am now at 135 a 4 at American Eagle. At the stores themselves the different cuts fit differently. At one store I own a size 4 capris, and a size 6 jeans each fit the same. Where do you usually shop?

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
