Size 0
I dont think that I would ever be that sive even if I was just skin and bones!
My 13DD is a 0.
My 18DD got my a Choir T-shirt for Christmas to wear. Size M. It's a little snug in the chest but not in the waist belly area. And that was without my shapetop under it! I can't believe she ordered me a med. That was the best present of all!

Stats: Lost 100 lbs. & 6 sizes; 30 lbs. and 2 sizes left!
WOE: Low cal, mod carb, and cycle it all
Start Date: Summer 2002
I'm 5'11" and currently weight 213 lbs; I wear a size 20 bottoms and size extra large (sometimes extra-extra large, depending on the brand).

At my lightest weight, I was 170-175, and wore a size 16 bottoms, and size large tops comfortably. I will always be a bit more substantial due to my bone structure (wide hip bones and shoulders) and height. But if I could pick my size...a 12 or 14 would feel skinny to me.

As for shape. I am a solid hourglass. I have to wear well-fitted clothing and heels. I like nice (expensive) clothes...it's extra spendy for me due to my size, height and shape. So I am learning to sew.

I am 5'4", and currently weigh 182. I wear a size 16-size 14. Size 16s are starting to feel way to loose on me, but 14s are still a little tight I am well proportioned, so it doesnt make my pant size go down quickly, everything goes down at the same time.

Update from me: I'm about 181-2 these days, and just yesterday fit into a 10 at Ann Taylor Loft. Not a perfect fit, but on and zipped and I'd have bought them if they had been the color I want. I'm 5'7".

Our stats are pretty similar, and we must be similarly built as well. The funny thing is, though, that the last time I lost weight (eyeroll), I don't ever remember buying a 10. In fact, the smallest pants I had (and I was under 170) are currently too big on me. Very strange, but I'll take it. Congrats on your progress!

Christine, same here. I'm wearing 18's at 276 and the last time I fit into 18's I was 210-220 ish. When I was 276 before I'd gained all my weight I was wearing a 26/28. The low carb and exercise has made me leaner so I weight more but in a smaller size cause of more muscles.

Thanks Christine, I have never had a butt or hips, I was always called slacka** so I can fit into much smaller jean

Thanks, CJ! I feel a little less disoriented now; good to know it's not just me. I was thinking that perhaps clothing sizes changed drastically in the past five years or something!

I'm 5'7" and weigh about 160. I wear between a size 6 and 9. Because of the sport I'm involved in I have a lot of muscle in my thighs and bum area. It makes finding good fitting pants rather hard. ;-)

I'm 5'8" and I'm a size 20

I'm concentrating really hard on not buying any elastic-waisted pants because they've gotten me in a heap of trouble over the years. You can gain 20+ lbs. and your pants will still fit! No more!

I would love to get into single digits, like an 8, but I have no idea what weight I would have to be because I have NEVER in my life been smaller than a 12.

Lizzy- You are so funny. I am very very small framed. I can't wear most bracelets if it gives you an idea. The bad thing is every little gain in weight looks like I have gained 5x's that amount.

Okay, I need to amend my earlier post...I went clothes shopping today and I actually fit into a size 18! I haven't been an 18 since I WAS 18!!!

So, I'm 254 and a size 18.

Wow- can't believe I'm chiming in.. but currently I'm 245 and in a 22. Sometimes a 24.
I can be in a 22 all the way down to about 210- then I start dropping the sizes.

At my adulthood thinnest (190) I was wearing a 16. That's my goal this time.. a size 16.
