Default a size question

I would love love love to be a stable size 3/4.. what weight do you think id have to be? I know theres all sorts of factors like muscle, height and blah blah but generally, I wonder what 3/4 people weigh. I am 5'3.5" (all short people take pride in their half inches, haha) I have a ton of 5/6's from express but I really can't remember how much I weighed when I wore them.. anyone know?

I don't know for sure but I would guess 125ish? I am 5'8'' and around 140 I am a good size 4. But like you said, body frame and muscle work into it a lot.

I'm 121 at 5'7 and i'm a size 7. I think it really depends on your body frame.

Everything depends upon height, your shape and how much muscle you have.

Of course, if you read the weight loss issues of "People" magazine, everyone, no matter their weight, wears a size 8! I remember when Carnie Wilson was down to 150, they said she wore a size 6! She's shorter than I am, and when I weight 150, I wear a 12 on top and a 14/16 on the bottom! (And I'm in good physical shape!)

Another factor -- In women's clothing, there are no standards for size. A friend of mine once told me that if I tried on enough clothes, I'd be some designer's size 10! The longer I live, the more I believe it to be true.

I agree with everyone-- I mean, Lizzbabe and I are the same height and she said at 140 she's a size 4-- when I was 140 I was a 10 or 12! There is just no way to know.

I am 5'5 and about 142 and a size 3/4. I attribute this to an apple shape, my hips and butt are small. I think it definitely depends on shape, etc.

the US size vs australian size is 4 sizes isn't it? ie size 10 US is size 14 australian?

if so my lowest weight at 5'9" was 140lbs (65kg) and i was in a size 10 aus, so size 6 US. I love US sizing!

I think it is Daisy, I'm an Aussie too.

Heh, yeah, American sizes sound so flattering :P It's kind of nice to think over there I'm a 4/6 whereas here i'm an 8/10. Never mind the fact that they're really just the same thing. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet!

I don't usually pop in here because quite frankly my kids fit in this category better than I do ... however. My newest jeans are made by Santa Barbara and they are a 3/4. My Levis however are a size 6 so I dunno.

Any time you are shopping try on lots of different brands. I had on a British made blazer the other day that was a 2. It was too big ... ugly a sin but GIRLS! ... a size two that was too big!

I'm 5'4" and throughout about a 20 pound fluxuation am anywhere between a loose six and a loose four. I have huge boobs though for my height so I'm convinced that a lot of my weight is in them (range between a full D-DDD, depending on weight), even though they don't look that big. It really just depends on your build, your bone structure, etc.

I'm 5'4" and at 145 pounds I wear a size 8.
It seems that for about every 10 pounds I lose I also lose a size as well.
So when I started out I was 183 pounds and in a size 14.

But of course, everyone is different!
