What size do you wear, and what do you weigh???
So here's a topic for discussion. This whole size thing has me completely confounded. Today I went out and bought two dress slacks for work in size 16, and they fit perfectly. Me??? Size 16??? I feel like I should be wearing a 20 at 186 lbs, at least. And yet others have posted that they wear a 16 while in their 200's, and others are at higher sizes at about my weight. Recently I read a post where a woman and her BFF both wear a size 6. One weighs 125, one weighs 165, and they attribute the difference to muscle, because the heavier one is a dedicated exerciser. They didn't mention any height difference, although I imagine that can make a big difference too.
So what's up with clothing sizes vs. weight? Anybody care to "weigh" in? LOL!
To answer your quesitons....
I weigh 122 and am 5ft 1 in...
I wear a medium top and size 2 jeans. I had real issues with dress pants sizing...the 2's fell off my butt and most places that carry misses sizes don't tend to make them any smaller.. though I don't know why because I am not overly small....so I had to go to the Jr department and ended up with a size 5 there. 35 years ago when I was this small....I wore a 7 junior. Sizing is wacky.

I am 5'3" and weigh 143 lbs.
I remember before I had kids I was 135 lbs and wore a size 3. After my son was born and I finally got back to 135 I tried on a pair of my jeans and couldn't get them up. I wore a size 6 or 8 then and that was in 1985.
As far as tops go, that is depressing. I am still wearing XL because of my boobs.

I weigh 146 lbs
I fit in a snug 8, or a loose 10.
I was in 12s and 14s when I was 155 to 165 lbs, and 14/16 between 185 down to 165
I'm also anywhere from a 4/6 top to a large. The extra skin on my arms (batwings) makes it so that any top with very slim arms is too small.... mostly I wear medium tops.
