For me personally, the perfect size is always the next size down

As for the final perfect size? I haven't the slightest clue. I figure I'll just know when I get there.

I like how Queen Latifah puts it "I'm a size healthy", although if I could could pick, I would love to be a size 8, but thats just me, I haven't been a single digit size in ages.

my perfect size is 4/6 US.
But the perfect size ranges from one to another person.

It's different for everyone I suppose. That question lead me to have an eating disorder. I think that was because I was convinced it was out of my reach. I had such low self esteem thinking I could not do things. Now I'm just reaching for 'reasonable'. haha

Nothing is perfect. I'm not sure if you mean "size" as in body, or "size" as in clothing. I don't have a "perfect" of either one. I'm always going to be a differen size depending on what I'm putting on. It doesn't really matter. As far as my body, well, I can't really tell you. It all depends.

I would LOVE to be a size 6 bc when I was in 6th grade I remember my mother telling me that that was the size where you knew you were skinny. Ever since then in my head I've just dreamed of being a size 6 bc that's my standard of skinny. But I also have several friends who are a size 8 who I think are tiny. Basically, like someone else said, I would be thrilled to be an 8 as that is in the single digits and I haven't been there since the 8th grade...

I have a weird body shape. I carry all of my weight in my stomach, and none in my hips or legs. I'm a definite apple. So, whatever I can get to a flatish stomach will be my perfect size. lol.

I wish I knew! I remember being 180 and feeling fine. I wasn't too skinny, but I wasn't a big blob either. I was a size 13 in juniors, and I never thought I was fat.

And at 200 I felt fine, too.

Then at 225, I felt little confidence.

And at 256, I had no confidence at all.

So I know I want to be at least 180. I wonder if 140 is too small? I know everyone's body differs.

When I was a size 8/10 I was okay. Being a 10/12 was perfect for me-all my curves & healthy, full of energy.

i have no idea. I'd like to say that when i am in a healthy BMI i will be at my perfect size, but i realise that there will always be things that i will not be happy with, even at that size. A size where i can comfortably go bikini shopping for the first time with my friends would probably be my perfect size

Agreed! I wouldn't care if my thighs were huge or my butt was big, all I want is a flat stomach! Genetically, I don't think it's in the cards for me.
