Female here.

I am 5'4" and I weigh around 180 lbs. I wear a size 14 - 16. I am about 50 pound overweight and I am working to reduce that number. My issue is not so much diet as it is lack of exercise which I am trying very hard to change.

I'm 5'10" and about 165-168lbs, which has hardly changed since I was about 13 (11-12 years ago). I generally wear a 32" waist and last time I went to a cross-dress party (only time, honest...) I wore a size 14 skirt, though British sizes and US sizes for most things are confusingly similar but not the same.

I am 5'10", weigh 146. I wear a size 30 waist on my pants (although those are a bit big, should be more like a 28-29 I have no doubt). I workout pretty hard, have lost 60 lbs since March 2010. Small to Medium sized shirts.

Easy to find those sized clothes, as most people are considerably heavier here in S. Texas, and consume the Large to XXL, to 2-4 XXL sized clothes. Love the clearance sales, as they always have my sizes available!

I'm 5'2", 156 lbs, wear a size 12, and I am definitely overweight, but I also like my clothes loose-fitting.

Like LookinforMayberry, I'm also 5'2" and about 156lbs but there's no way I can fit into size 12 for pants or jeans. For pants/jeans, size 14 is tight on me but size 16 is too big. (however I can sometimes wear size small for things like robes, sleepwear.)

Must be my hips, they've always been very wide. Even when I got down into the 120s (about 20yrs ago), my hips never got smaller than 38" & I only got down to size 8. Maybe clothing sizes are different today, could get into size 6 these days if I weighed in the 120s? Also, since my waist is always 12 inches smaller than my hips no matter what I weigh, even at my lowest weight, it's tough to find clothes that fit right -- always too tight in the hips & too loose in the waist. (Seems to me that they make clothes for women with no hips & long legs/long arms, just the opposite of me!)
