Default Small, Medium or Large Frame?

Does anyone know how to determine what your body frame is? Since I have been wrapped in fat most of my life I have NO idea what my natural "frame" is...I do know that I was comfortable when I was around 128-130 pounds (for a split second in time) , straddling a size 8-10. I am 5'0 ....

Thanks Chicas!

Schatzi, it sounds like you're a medium frame. I'm 5'-2", and weighed 128 during high school and college. I was running almost every day, and was very fit and muscular.

I think there's some measurement you can do with the wrist, but I can't remember what. I think I found it on the internet once... I think the logic behind that was that it was the boniest place on the body? I'll look and see what I can find.

The fact is that most people are med build. I work in the operating room and the biggest differences in bone is it's density (hardness) not it's size.

Thanks for the link, reaffirmed my belief in the 'large frame' issue i've been having. At 5'11", i've got a 2 7/8" measurement of my elbow. Which would make me a medium frame, if I were a boy, according to that site, but a freakishly huge-framed woman (not even on the chart). Ahh well.

Well I guess I must be a small build cause my elbow don't even measure 2 inches. I didn't see the chart for it which is probably a good thing! lol

That was fun. I think I am medium frame, but couldn't find a measuring tape. I also have tiny wrists and ankles, but I know I am not a small frame. At 5'4" I tend to look enormous if I stand next to a petite woman (say 5'2" and under). I have disproportionately long legs (my inseam is 30 in.) I am also an apple. I think all those factors make us "carry " our weight as we do.

158: size 12, but size 14 top (apple!!!!!)

I live in China Town, and there are lots of beautiful, petite Chinese and Vietnamese women here. I feel like a frickin' buffalo beside them.
