I'm VERY top heavy. I should probably be a consistent 12 in dresses and a M-L in shirts but my chest is crazy. Ugh!

I'm the opposite - very bottom heavy!

Height: 6'1"
Weight: - 265
Dress size - 18 but the top is too big by quite a bit
Pant size - 20-22
Shirt Size - L

I always find it interesting too how people of similar height and weight can wear different sizes completely!

Weight: 177
Dress Size: 10*
Shirt Size: S-M-L*
Pant Size: 10

*Depends a lot on the style. I wear something like a 30J/JJ-32HH/J bra so finding tops/dresses that fit is really hard. If it wasn't for my bust I'd probably be easily S or M in everything.

ETA: I've recently started buying clothes in brands that cater specifically to those with larger chest and in those brands I'm typically a M on top and/or a size 8-10

Shirts are so annoying. My chest is so huge I always feel like shirts are tight. Hopefully some weight loss will help with that. :)

Shirt Size: 1X
Pant Size: 15

I'm top heavy and thick waisted but relatively small hips and no butt. So I wear juniors in pants because they are low waisted and narrower - a size 16 would be too tight in the waist and much too big in the butt and hips and legs but a junior 15 fits.

But I still wear a 1X shirt - my goal is to get into all non-plus sizes but there is a pretty big leap from a Misses L, even an XL, to a plus size 1X so I've got a ways to go!

Its weird though, I have a tiny frame. Sure, I look overweight but I don't look like a size 20. And so many women are larger than I am and they are size 14s. I'm so confused. And at the doctors they always assume I'm about 150. So its weird.

M thoughts are the smaller your frame, the larger the pant size you will wigh at any given weight of a larger framed person. Different size frames support the fat differently.

I have a large frame (wrist is 7" circumference with a fabric tape measure). And at my highest weight I wore a 20 at 275. So, it takes more pounds foe me to drop sizes than someone with a smaller frame.

I don't think a large frame explains it all. I have a large frame as well and at 276 I was wearing a 26 in jeans and now at 190ish I am in an 18. I have a lot of muscle mass as I have always lifted weights. Maybe that has something to do with it. Different body types fascinate me.

See, and I thought I was onto something. I guess we are all so different that I can't make assumptions. I just know that between my mom and me, when we weighed the same, we wore very different sizes and dropped sizes very different. She was wearing a 26 at the same top weight and she dropped sizes so unbelievably fast. She had much more of a bumpy/wider bottom than me and I assumed it was because she had a smaller frame so therefore the fat held/clung differently. But... I'm probably full of hot air and should just chalk it up to we are all so very, very different. It's actually amazing with so many shapes that we can look nice in similar styled clothes!

I think it has to do with the amount of lean muscle you have too. I use to be super fit in my teens to early 20's, at 165lbs I was a size 5! At 240lbs I was a size 16! I've always been strong, and now that I'm back into strength training my muscle is coming back very quickly. Down a size in 2 weeks of starting! I'm more medium framed than large. It's how and where you carry your weight too. Amazing how the body works!

omg, yes, pants have the worst fit on me! haha, my waist line is really narrow compared to the rest of my body, but i hate where fat tends to collect instead. arms and thighs and butt! grah!!

My measurements that I took this afternoon are:

So...sizes are tough. What fits around my chest is huge in the waist. What fits in the butt/hips is huge in the waist. Always have to wear a belt.

Dress Size: I'm not really sure? I wear a L at Forever 21 and 12/L at Express (the only places I normally buy dresses)
Shirt Size: I tend not to wear women's shirts as I have a big bust and long torso, they never seem to fit me right. I wear a M in adult sizes though. I'd guess I'd be an XL in women's.

I have a "curvy" body type. It seems like no matter how much weight I lose, I can never get into a pair of size 5 jeans! I dropped down to 114lbs but it didn't look right on my frame.

I live in England, therefore all my measurements will be UK sized.
Height: 157 cm / 5'2
Weight : 134 pounds
Dress size: Size 12 UK
Shirt Size: Size 12
Pant size Size 10 UK. ( I'm small around the hips but big around tummy and big boobs)

I think a 12 UK is the equivalent of a US 8/10 depending on the brand.

OK this is just so depressing. I really just want to cry reading it. Routinely people weighing 30 to 50 pounds more than me wear a similar size or smaller. People my weight or maybe 10 pounds above my weight wear 2 sizes smaller.

Height: 5'4"
Weight: - 164.6
Dress size - No clue - don't wear
Pant size - 16 (can wear a 14 only if it is special "curvy" cut)
Shirt Size -XL to L depending on style

I know why it is. I have a large waist. My waist at the narrowest point is 38". I actually have records from when I first joined WW in 1988. At that time I weighed 167 (a couple of pounds more than I weigh now) and my waist was 33" == a full 5" smaller than my current waist.

Part of it is, I guess, age (I'm 57). I was sedentary for several years. However a year and a half ago I joined the gym and started seeing a trainer and did weight training (and did cardio also). I've slacked off the past 5 months but I was very regularly exercising for months and while I have lost weight (40 pounds) it really hasn't made much of a dent in my waist size.

Finding pants to fit is difficult. To get them fit my waist then everything else is too large. But if they don't fit my waist then I can't get them on.

Back when I weighed 207 I was wearing size 22 and now I see others at similar weight wearing sizes the same or less than I weigh now at 164.

I have seen this too!! I am 122 and have a pair of size 8 jeans that fit well and there are others who are 150+ who also wear a size 8. It's inconsistency in sizing between stores + different body shapes.

It doesn't matter what size we wear, it matters what looks good on us! :)

I hear you koshka, I've noticed the exact same thing, although due to hips, rather than waist size. I'm about as pear shaped as a person can be.

Another factor might be how tight/loose people prefer to wear their clothes. My sister is tiny (much smaller than me) and likes to wear everything baggy so she routinely buys larger sizes than me and would say those are the sizes she "fits".

That's a good point. Theoretically I wear a size Large T shirt. But I hate tight T-shirts particularly around the neck so I usually buy an XL.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, koshka. I'm very very apple shaped myself, always have been, and I knew that when I lost weight it would come off everywhere but my stomach first. (I swear...the last on = first off philosophy is true according to my body.) I lost my first five pounds entirely off of my face hands and feet. These next ones seem to be coming off of my hips and thighs, and I fully expect the very last thirty pounds to come off of my waist.

Just remember, when you're as close to goal as you are the only place left for the fat to come from is your problem area! Something to look forward to. :)

And I haven't been shopping recently enough to know most of my sizes, but I've got a fitted size 18WP shirt from Talbots hanging on my closet as my minigoal prize. I expect to look nice in it at 195. (I'm 5'3".)

This thread was kinda freaking me out because there have only been like 3 posters shorter than me. So I looked it up and, in fact, 10% of the population should be as short or shorter. How odd!

Anyhow...

weight 186

pant size 18

My sizes are WAY bigger than the other poster w/ very similar height and weight. Gah!

Weight: 137 pounds

Shirt Size: S/M (In juniors I get a L to accomodate my bust and shoulders)

Me too. It drove me nuts when I was younger because I wanted to be a smaller size and it just never was going to happen...the waist could fit an 8 or so but the breasts and hips never were going in that size no matter what....

Since losing 40 lbs, I'm now:
Weight: 193.8
Dress Size: XL, 14 or a 16
Shirt Size: XL
Pants Size: XL or a 16 but starting to fit into 14's!! Waist is huge but pants are tight in the butt, thighs and hips.

im 5'8 (really 5'7.5 but i dont care lolll)
276 currently
in N.A i'm anywhere from a 14-18 its really hard to know with american/canadian stores
In UK sizes im a size 22 so I guess I'm supposed to be a US 18
top wise I'm the same, I have the same measurements on my hips as I do my chest, it usually translates from a 18 to a 1x or 22 in uk :P

i dont live in the uk but i do alot of my shopping from there, the shipping is dirt cheap to get to Newfoundland versus getting it from canada or the states. In newfoundland clothes or canadian clothes i guess its same I'm a 14 with XL tops. so lets see

canada-14 and XL
us-18 and 1x
uk-22 and 22..lol

Height: 5'3

Weight: 162

Dress Size: 14? tried some on but none fit really well yet. I'm a short torsoed large busted apple so even if they "fit" they don't really FIT. I don't think the dress exists that fits me everywhere.

Shirt Size: If I try on a L, I need an XL. If I try on an XL, it's too big and I need a L. 14's fit, unless they are too big, or too tight in the bust, but 12's are always too small

Pant Size: 12 in dress pants, though 50% of what I try on gives me "clown pants syndrome" and are way too baggy in hips and legs. The other 50% fit great, but are way too long even with heels. In jeans, some 12's fit, but some are still too tight, but all 14's are way too big, as though they were 2 sizes from a 12 instead of 1. But one pair of 10 jeans fit the other day.

I'm in a very annoying between sizes spot right now and incredibly frustrated, in case you can't tell. I hope I remember in my next life to be born rich and have all my clothing custom made. I'm buying all my clothes cheap from Goodwill, but putting my tailor's children through college.

Interesting to see all of the differences. I guess every one (and store/designer) is different. I find that my own sizes change depending on the shop—in “trendier” stores I’ll be a 12 (maybe even 14)—in lower end store (like Old Navy) I’ll be a Medium/8-10.

Was trying on dresses today, and had the “bottom too tight, top too loose” problem :( Arg.

I feel really odd now since according to reading this I should be a few sizes larger than I am for my height and weight. But I am 5'7 233lbs and a size 14 US 16UK (18 in smallllll brands) and XL tops. I'm hourglass shaped maybe that helps? My weight is very distributed so it takes me a long time to lose enough inches on the important areas to go down a size but I seem to be a couple sizes smaller than most people at my height and weight. I feel like an Oddball now lol

Height: 5'7

Weight: 212
Dress Size: 18/20

Shirt Size: 18/20 1x-2x
Pant Size:18 and 20

All my sizes are based differently wherever they might be purchased. I do at times buy Juniors and there I run higher. so that's why I have the two options on my sizing here.
