Talking Okay... weight and clothes

I know we are all different shapes and sizes. And we all wear different sizes at different weights from one another. But what size WERE you... and what size are you NOW? And at what weights???

I used to weight 376. I was a 4X top (or a 28 ish) and a 30 bottom (or 5 X in stretchy type pants)

I now weigh 297. I am a 2X top and a size 22 jeans.

What about you?
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!

S/C/G: 298/218.1/170

Height: 5'8"


Last year, I ended at XL top and 18 pants at 214 from a 298 with pants 26W and 2x shirts.

Now, I don't know. I can still wear the skinny clothes tightly or with a bit of a roll. The pants that used to fall off me are just baggy comfortable. Yet one of the stretchy 18s are perfect. When I started this thing again, the 18s I bought last year were a bit tight. I haven't really worn them recently. I doubt there will be a difference since my inches lost have been minuscule with lack of exercise. I started this again from 260 to 248(now).
Still trying again. Never completely quiting this journey.

Height: 5'8"


OK I have to change my answer since I got measured at Catherine's and Lane Bryant today... I am a 0X/1X top (18/20) and a 4 Red True-Fit sizing bottom, which THEY claim is a 16. I think this whole vanity sizing thing has gotten way out of hand. I walked into that store wearing a pair of size 24 jeans (from 1995, and baggy, but still) and am now sitting here wearing a pair of size "16" jeans. This is totally insane.


When I was 360 I wore a 30 in most pants and a 30/32 in most tops. At 300 I was a 26 in pants and a 3X/26-28 in tops. Now at 265ish I am a 22 pants, 2X top. I'm 5'8" and my weight is pretty evenly distributed all over; I guess you would say I have an hourglass figure.

I started at 270 and wore 2XL tops and was just about to have to move into size 22 pants. I am at 252 this week and am comfortably back in my size 20 pants (and even have started to wear some that were on the smaller end of 20! ). I still wear 2XL tops, but I've noticed they're much looser than they used to be.

Height: 5'8


These are always fascinating! the differences are amazing! I'm 5'8 and started at 320ish, I wore a 4x top, and 24 pants. It was summer and I couldn't squeeeze into my brown size 24 capri pants and could not bring myself to buy a 26 because at the store i like to shop at there IS no 26! So that's when I started! Now I'm 240ish, and 1x top, sometimes a 2x if it's a trendier store (as in 1x at wal-mart, but 2x at Reitmans), and same with pants, but usually a 20

sigh.... can't wait to hit those teens!!! hehehe

Started: 323
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now! Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
Goal: 160

S/C/G: 256 / TICKER / 140

Height: 5'3"


I was 256lbs and a 22 pant, 1-2x shirt.
Now, at 217, I'm an XL shirt, and 18 pant.

I have really wide hips. Really wide. The pants usually don't fit around my legs - way, way too loose. But what can you do?

I was a tight 24 (meaning, I didn't want to buy a size 26!) at 290ish.

I'm now at 249, and have been wearing 22, 20 and have one pair of size 18 pants that fit me. Though my 22s are too big, but I'll still wear them if I dont have anything else to wear. I figure I'm a 20

S/C/G: 287/120's

Height: 5 foot nuthin'


I was 287 lbs at 5 feet tall. I was wearing a 26/28 and they were getting snug on me. Scared the living c*#p out of me, 3X's were too small on me. Oh my gosh, just typing that brought back such horrific memories for me.

Anyway, I maintain in the mid 120's, wear a size XS, lots of petites if I'm lucky enough to find, and am mostly a size 4. But wear some 2's and an occasional 0 depending on the cut and make - especially on the bottom where I completely lost my hips and behind - so weird. I have a very hard time finding pants. Which I guess is better then when I was 287 lbs. I literally could not find any pants that fit me. I was soooo bottom heavy. Went almost 15 years without wearing ANY pants. It was horrible.

I began in an 18 @ 215. I was wearing an XL top.

I am in a 6 now and wear usually a small blouse--sometimes M depending on style. One of the biggest joys I have found is that as your weight goes down, your sizes go down more rapidly. It seems like I could not get out of a 16 for months.

I'm about 5'9"

When I was 350 lbs, I wore a size 24 in pants, and a 4x in tops.

At my current weight, 265 lbs, I wear a size 20 pants and 1x-2x in tops(depending on the make).
