Default Are you or were you a Size 16 &18?

I know every person's body is different... so I was wondering what a size 16 or 18 person would weigh??? So I can get an idea of how much I would weigh at a 16.. i'm in a 18 and im 5'6 ... Thanks



Update: Thank you so much for all of your responses it really helped me.. looks like I can narrow it down to be a size 16 I would have to be around 200... great 29 pounds to go! I'm looking forward to wearing 16's havent wore that size in 4 years!

I was a comfortable size 16 at 195, and I'm 5' 6" too. But I think I tend to wear bigger sizes than most people my weight b/c of my ghetto booty

I can wear size 16 now but they are really baggy. I am 5'2 and weigh 173 pounds. A better fit for me is 14/15.

I'm currently wearing a size 18 and I'm 202-203. I have pretty large hips so I've always been bigger in jean sizes. Oh and I'm 5'2".

Height is a major variable here so you might want to include that in your question.

Otherwise, I can say that I was a size 16 when I was 215 lbs. I'm also 5'11" so that plays a big part.

I'm 5'3" and I was a size 18 at 203 last time down. (Of course, then life happened and I gained back 60 pounds... but that's a different story.)

I was wearing 16s when I was at around 165-170 at 5'5.5". I carried a lot of my weight in my tummy, so often had to size up higher than some others.

I was in size 16 for a long time. During that time, my weight ranged from ~185 to 192. A few months ago, around 185 pounds, I was able to fit in size 14.

I was in an 18 at 190-195...I'm 5' 3" and tend to carry the majority of my weight in my stomach. Right now I'm at 229 and I can fit in an XL in tops sometimes...which is annoying!

I'm bottom heavy and when I say 16, I mean my bottoms which are the biggest part of me. I am 5'6" but wear a 16 petite (current weight 212). When I get closer to 200, I wear a size 14. Also, I can wear 14 short because petite pants are actually a size down, if that makes sense. So I'd say if you are asking about a true 16, I was probably around 230.

Yup! I agree. Height is a huge factor. I am 5'9" and at 215, I am fitting into 16's comfortably. At 230, MOST of my 16's were way too tight...

I will have to get down to 200 b/f I can wear 14's.
170 - 180 = 12 and I don't think I will EVER get back to 10's.

I'm 5'6" and wearing Khol's 16s now (at 191). I've been wearing them (less comfortably) since about 200, and was wearing Lane Bryant jeans before them. Hips, I haz em.
