    I'm 5'6" and between a 18 and 20 (some 18s fit, some I have to wear 20). My shirts are XL or XXL but I'm breast feeding and my boobs are huge (40DDD). I am hovering around 248 lbs right now.

    5'6"ish, 144, a medium up top and a 8/10 on the bottom. I'm all thighs and booty. Working to trim them down and hopefully pull a little more off my hips and arms. Of course, though, the boobs are the first to go :/

    Check out this website. It has a ton of photos of real unphotoshopped women and their height, weight, age, size, etc . . .


    Hmm, I look nothing like those women. I hate being oddly shaped. I'm currently 143 ish in size 6/8 bottom, s/m top. Most of my fat is in my gut still.

    I have to ask what brand some of you ladies wear. I'm 5'6" 143 and wear a 9 jeans, 8 dress pants, medium or large top (depending on brand). I'm amazed when I see someone with the same height and weight saying they were a 4 jeans.

    It's all about body composition.

    Current weight: 125 US pant size 3 (I wear Jr sizes as Women's wear does not fit me right), shirt Small

    Previous weight: 129 US pant size 3, shirt Small

    Weight before that: 130 US pant size 8, shirt size Medium or Large

    although brand plays a big role, especially in different areas of the world, so does body fat percentage and lean muscle mass. a runner, a couch potato, and a body builder all with the same height and weight will not wear the same sized clothing, no matter what brand.
    *but since you asked, and i'm 2 lbs less than you, i wear a 4 in Old Navy, New York & Company, Calvin Klein, Ann Taylor, etc. and 5 in most junior brands, albeit with little room in the thighs.

    ***Edited because I can't seem to spell anymore...

    Thanks for the reply. I agree on the body type definitely. The brands make a big difference too. So I'm stopping at Old Navy on the way home LOL

    I'm 66.5 inches tall and weigh 141 lbs right now. Most of my pants are US size 6, though they are getting loose enough I may have to buy replacement pants in US size 4 (yay!). On top I wear small or medium depending on the brand and style. I have longish arms and torso and a pear shape.

    5'6", 163lbs, US size 12 in tops and bottoms. Want to get down to 130lbs, figure I'd be about a size 6 or 8 there.

    Hello everyone! I'm a little taller than 5' 6" but I weight 158 and I'm currently a US size 8/10 depending on the brand of pants/dress. I usually wear a medium top as well.

    I am 5'6.5" and currently weigh 159.5. I have a hard time with pants because my thighs are thicker and my waist is pretty small. The best jeans I can find are junior size 7 (from Kohl's, women's size 6 at Express) with a little stretch in them so they can stretch over my thighs and fit correctly in my waist lol. For dress pants, I wear an 8 right now but they are big in my butt and waist. Dresses depend on how they fit, if they fit in the waist and flare out, I can wear a 6 or sometimes even a 4. If they are more fitted in hip, I need an 8. The majority of my clothes which consist of mostly tops because jeans/pants are so hard to find, are from Express and I wear a small. I gained some "relationship" weight over the last 3 years but now that the relationship is over, I am losing weight again, When I weighed around 145, I wore size 4's for the most part and x-small tops. At my heaviest, which was 211 lbs, I wore 14's and large tops.

    I am 125 pounds and have a very small frame. I don't fit into the juniors or womens clothing yet and wear a 14 in kids.

    I'm 5'6", 42, and weigh 170 (with a GW of 150). I'm hanging out between a 12-14 bottom and size L top (except places with crazy vanity sizes where I'm a M).

    I'm guessing when I reach goal, I'll be a size 8-10 on bottom and a solid M on top which is A-OK with me. :)

    5'5 and 246.8 wear US 18 in pants and L/XL in pants. Oddly enough, when I weighed this much 6 years ago I wore 22/24.

    I'm 5'6" currently 218.2 lbs. Just got into my size US 16 pants this weeks after finally getting into size 18 last week. Starting weight was 256 lbs US size 20/22. I'm an hourglass with big hips and chest and small waist. My goal weight is between 135 - 140 lbs.

    If anyone with similar stats wants to add me, feel free.

    I am also 5' 6" and 55 years old. I weigh 159 lbs. I finally fit into medium tops and size 10 pants. It is amazing how many who are the same height and weight wear size 8. I don't think I will be able to fit into a size 8 until I weigh less than 150.
