    5’7” and 165lbs. Size 10 mostly

    I'm one inch taller and just a few pounds heavier and wear the same size.

    It's cool to see that - because I have found a lot of people either wear size 8 or 14-16 at "our sizes"!! So crazy how it can differ.

    Although today I tried on like 8 pairs of jeans and the two that didn't fit were low rise 12s. All the 10s worked.

    148 lbs, 5’8”, size 6 mostly in pants with some 4s and some 8s thrown in. I try on all three sizes. Size Small or Medium tops. My worst is that my shoe size changed and now nothing fits. It’s good I live down south, because it’s mostly flip flops for me!

    I am 121 pounds and 5’4’’. I have skirts and pants in size 2-4 right now. But I had large hips so anything constraining like jeans is more a size 4 but dresses and looser skirts or pants are a 2. My goal is 118 so that I can wear the rest of my size 2 pants! It’s been about eight years!

    I’m 5’8”. At 163 lbs I felt like my size 12 jeans were getting a bit tight. Now at 140 lbs I’m wearing a size 8. Goal is a size 6 which should happen for me around 130 lbs.

    5'11, 160, and my pants are an 8, but I could do with a 10...At goal, 150, I'm a comfortable 6/8 depending on brand. I need Talls (36" inseam), so my brands are limited.

    At my highest weight, 248, I got really stretchy 16s from Old Navy, otherwise I would have gone up to an 18 in non-stretchy jeans. I am now ~220 and the stretchy 16s are big, but not too big so I still wear them. I can now fit 14s but they are really uncomfortably tight, so I am thinking another 10 lbs and I'll drop to a 14.

    I'm 5'8" and currently 130 lbs, exclusively wear American Eagle brand denim; just like the fit best. I own pairs (the oldest probably being 8 years old) sizing between 2 and 8. Right now I'm wearing size 4 in my jeans and 6 in my shorts.

    5'4, 262 pounds (down from 285), just got into some Old Navy 16s, but I have a feeling they are the most vanity of the vanity sizing...

    I started out in a 20 also. I'm 5'6 and started at 220 lbs. Fortunately, I never threw away any of my old clothes as I was coming up. I was a size 9/10 until I was in my late 30's then start up the sizes. 11/12, 14, 16, 18, to 20. I've lost 71 lbs since Jan 1st. The gain has been over the past 20 years so I've thrown my 9/10, 12, and 14 away! But I still had size 16 & 18. I went through all those and had to buy size 14 cause 16 was starting to fall off. Now, I'm 148.8 lbs, 5'6", and wearing a size 14 but really need a 12! The 14 feels pretty good on the waist but the butt and legs are huge. I think the waist in the result of extra skin because when I put on 12's, they do fit well but i have some skin that goes over the top, which I dislike so I stick with 14 for now!

    5’1” and currently 160 lbs. I wear a size 12 in pants. I’m bigger on top and wear a size large in t-shirts. Sometimes an XL. Used to wear a size 4-6 in pants and medium in tops. Working to get back there!

    I’m 5’9” and 164 lbs and I can wear anything from a size 6 to a size 10 depending on the brand and the style. It makes telling my hubby my sizes for Christmas shopping interesting!
