    I think it depends on your height if size 12 or 14 is obese. I weighed in the upper 180s and am 5’ 8” and wore a solid size 12 pant and 14 dress. That’s in the overweight category for BMI. I now wear size 10 pant and still 14 dress (large ribs, shoulders and bust line, so it’s too big around the hips, but fits around the chest) and am still in overweight category at 170. I Will probably wear a size 8 pant and 14 dress (maybe a big size 12) if I ever get into the normal weight category. So clothing size really doesn’t tell you if you are obese/overweight or not.
