    6'0, when I was 145 I was a US 6 or 8, depending on cut.

    When I was 155 I was in an 8 of my fav jeans. I am hippy/butty, so there are certain types that did not fit, but if i could get them over my butt, they gaped horribly in the waist. I figured at 145 I would have been in a 6 of them, and would be able to do any 8, and some 6s.

    I'm 5'7 (barely) and weight 179. I can comfortably wear a size 8. At my thinnest, around 150, I could fit into a size 4. Everyone carries their weight differently so it's so hard to compare sizes!

    At 145, 5'9", I was wearing a US size 12. But I don't like tight jeans.
    I have no idea how all you size 4/6/8 people are doing it! At 173, I could only find one pair of size 12s that fit me, and I think they lied and labeled their 14 a 12 so we could feel better about ourselves.

    It depends on where you shop. Women clothing sizes are crazy and unreliable. I am 5'3" and weight 137 lbs. I can wear, on average, a size 8 in pants. I wear my weight around my middle.

    I'm 5' 3''- at 145 I'd be around a size 10. I have wide hips and never had a small waist-

    How much do you weigh now? What size do you wear now? Subtract 1 size for every 10-15lb of weight loss.

    And who checks the tags in pants to see what size they are labeled? I just go by "do these pants feel and look good on me?" And "do I feel awesome wearing them?"

    I'm 5'4" and when I weighed 145 (back in high school), I'm pretty sure that I wore a size 8.

    Well, don't you have to start with SOME idea of a size to choose a couple off the rack to try on?

    With this in mind how do you actually avoid seeing the sizes? Do you hold a few up and eyeball them, guess that they look like they're probably somewhere near your physical shape and size and then try them on all the while still avoiding seeing the sizes which often as not are listed on the outside tear-off as the inner label?

    And in addition to all this labeling, many shops have color coded hangers for sizes, and nearly all will have those round things with the size number on them grouping the 8s, 10s, etc. You're managing not to see those either? The only "shop" I know of that throws cr*p together with no regard to sizing is the Goodwill, not that I have anything against that store but literally...it's the only one. Even thrift and consignment shops stack or rack items by size.

    It takes a lot of work to actually not see what size you're trying on. I can not imagine how a person could literally just not know. I suppose if you were to go into the shop, close your eyes as you enter so you don't see roughly how the pants are laid out in increasing increments on the racks or in bins if you're at Wally World, feel your way carefully forward to where they're located and put your hands all over them one after another until you find one that feels like your hips, stumble back to the dressing room to pull them up while tilting your head back to stare at the ceiling so you can't see the double-labels plus the size and possibly a color-coding of the hanger, scream "NO! Don't tell me what these are! I have an unbroken 39-year record of having literally no clue what size I wear" when the salesperson ducks her head into the dressing room if you need to try a different size, hey, what size do you have there right now, decide they seem "awesome," take them to the checkout with your eyes closed again, take them home and rip off the label and cut out the inner label by feel (careful with those scissors!)...then sure. It's doable.

    But I'll be honest. That seems like a lot of work to me. So...I, well...check the label instead.

    Saves me hours of time, stares from fellow customers, falling and breaking my neck in a store, and cutting myself with scissors.

    I recommend my method (checking the label). Give it a try. You'll thank me later.

    What I meant was "who, other than myself, looks at the tags in the back of my pants?" I meant it really doesn't matter to me if my favorite pants/slacks/jeans are labeled size 0, 10 or 28. As long as I think they look good and I feel good, confident and attractive in them.

    Oh, I see!

    Okay, but still...the OP was curious about sizing...I didn't see this as a "nobody's going to know" sort of thing although this point is true, in general. No, nobody's going to "know" what size I wear but the OP was curious about what she might expect once she gets closer to her goal weight, which is kind of a different matter. She's just wondering whether she's guessing all this correctly.

    That's how I understood it, anyway.

    I am 5'5". Back in the day when I was really fit, at 145 lbs I wore a size 6. Between 135-140 I wore a size 4 and even some size 2s. I couldn't ever get below 135. So, my weight wasn't super low, but I was pretty small. Right now, at about 180, I wear a 12.

    This could have been written by me..I used to wear a size 5/6 at 148# and I am also 5'5"..I was a size 0 at 125#..Now I am a size 12 at 177#..I wish I could see your body type it must be the same as mine..

    Depends on the brand. At Banana Republic, I'm a 6. At White House Black Market, I'm a 2-4 in jeans, or a 6 in their Suiting line but an 8 in shirts and dresses. I'm 5'6" and 140 pounds. My body shape is an inverted triangle. All my weight is in my shoulders and bust, and I have pancake butt lol.

    Alot depends on maker. Things made in asia are absurd sizing. The higher end makers size totally different and more to my liking. Appeals to my ego.....hmmm....
    Psychology most likely.

    Are you asking what size we SHOULD wear or what size we do wear haha. I’m 5’4 and used to be a solid 120-130 and wore a 4. Recently I gained weight over the holidays (thus starting this journey) and got up to 146. I needed a 6 at that point but it was snug. I’m back to 136 as of today (trying to get back to 120) and I can fit into my 4’s again but it’s a bit snug.
