Kilos per dress size

Postby Julz » Mon Nov 02, 2009 12:47 am

I know this is something that varies a lot for different people but I was just wanted to see what other people experiences were with how many kilos they had to lose before dropping a dress size. I think for me its around 7-9 kilos per dress size. I figured at goal weight that would put me about a size 8 :o lol getting back to size 12 would be an absolute dream but size 8 i dunno lol has anyone else thought this far ahead?

hi! well, i started at a size 22...27kgs later i am size 14. about 4-5 kgs between sizes i think. i often focus on sizes more than weight..eg now i am aiming for 'size 12' rather than 70 kilos.. size 8 does seem tiny! but we are all built so differently!

See... it truly depends on body shape, height etc etc.

When I first started my weight loss journey I think losing 10+ kilos was a dress size... Whilst when I was close to goal a size 10-12 was the differences of 2-3 kilos.

It is so hard to tell!

On average it is meant to be 5-6 kilos per dress size.

I'd love to get to a size 8, currently sitting on size 12. I'm guessing i'd have to get down to around 55kg or so, seems impossible!

For me it's anywhere between 4 to 6kgs. It all depends on the brand etc.

I like the idea of looking at size drops rather than kilos.
I would be thrilled to be a size 10/12 I think. I think the last time I lost weight it was about 8 kilos per size as I was a size 8 at 58 kilos ( i am 165cm tall)
My goal now is 65 kilos so that would roughly be a size 10. OMG! :shock:
So...
SW 104 kilo was size 20
Now 100 close to a proper 18
96 Maybe a "true 18"
89 Maybe a 16
81 Maybe a 14
73 Maybe a 12
65 Maybe a 10
57 Maybe an 8... I dont think so! :lol:
