Just curious to see how everyone else out there fares with women's sizing. I currently weigh about 155 and am relatively fit/muscular, and wear a size 8 (I am 5'5"). Two years ago (before baby) I was about 142, very fit, and was easily wearing size 4. Size 6 for me is about 146.
What are everyone else's experiences with weight and sizing?
I am 5'9"-10 and 199lbs and wear a size 16 pants, size 14 or L shirts. I just had a baby in June though...so things are still tightening up. I would say even at this same weight by Christmas I will be back in 14s.
Even at 150lbs I was in size 10-12s. A lot has to do with your hip structure.
Interesting. Here's another thought: about fifteen years ago, I clearly remember weighing 122 (skinny for me!) and squeezing myself into a J.Crew size 6 skirt (I loved that skirt). Given that size 6 for me now ranges somewhere around 146....what does that say about the way sizing has changed?
I'm 5'4" and 144, and I'm wearing a 11 or 12 in pants, getting close to a 9/10, but not there yet. Still at 12 or 14 in shirts (otherwise there's gaping... I'm relatively well-endowed in the chest. <grin> ).
At 132 lbs I was wearing size 5 jeans ( 6 years)
At 160 lbs I was wearing size 11 jeans (4 years)
At 180 lbs I am now wearing size 15 jeans (current)
Lower 130's was size 6, 150 was a 10 and currently at 175ish, I wear a 15 or 14, depending on brand/cut
I've weighed that for 10 years aside from pregnancy weight (going up and down) but I think I was a size 6 at around 135-140 and a size 10 at around 150 maybe?
Are we talking women's sizes?
I'm 5'6" with an athletic build at 145 pounds. I wear a size 11 in juniors because I have wide hips (I am 20 years old). Would I be a smaller size in women's? That would be a confidence boost!
Yes, the odd-junior sizes are for more straight figures, and would fit me great it they had something other than little girl styles to pick from. Jeans with beaded flowers and bright colored inserts do not go over well with professional adults.
I'm 5'6", and at 152, and I think I'm finally officially comfortably fitting into 10s. I was wearing 12s from like 155 up to 170ish.
Of course, this is all on my gym's scale. Mine (analog) thinks I'm 7 pounds lighter. I'm not sure which is more accurate; I just use the gym one because I can get a more precise number.
I have a lot of muscle mass from skating for years and I'm 5' 8''...but I always thought it wasn't normal that I'm about 250 lbs and wear sizes 14-16. I don't know, I generally hear of people much lighter than me fitting in those sizes
Man, there are some tall women here. I am a bit envious. Anyway, I am 5'3" 111-112lbs and I wear 2's and 3's in pants/jeans and small tops. When I weighed 172lbs 2 1/2 yrs ago I was wearing 12's and 14's and lg/x-lg shirts.
At 195 when I was 19 I wore a very tight 16
At 165 I wear a 10 or 12
I need to drop at least 15 pounds to comfortably drop a size :(
Size 10 in pants, Size 6-8 in shirts....as u can see, a 'pear' shape ;)
