I think you can take for granted, on a thread comprised mainly of women, that everyone understands that your size is a range or a tendency, and not an absolute or objective thing; we all try on clothes, right?
For me, I mostly wore 12s for the most gigantic range--like from 190 to 163-ish.
Now, in the mid 150s, I'm suddenly a 10 leaning more toward 8s than 12s. Since lately all the weight is coming off my stomach, and most of what's left seems to me to be on my butt/thighs, I'm hoping that the next ten pounds could make enough of a difference to make the center of my size zone an 8.
