Okay call me dumb but...

Postby MissReena » Sun Feb 03, 2008 11:13 pm

I don't understand the whole weight/dress size correllation??? Like I understand what weight I should be for my height etc but when it comes to the sizing of clothing that I should aim for I am so confused! I am 6ft, but have no idea what size clothing would look right for my height! What should be my goal outfit??? :?

I wouldn't aim for a size because you could walk into 5 stores and be 5 different sizes.

Aim for a healthy weight range for your height. Don't get stuck on this "size" thing, its silly!!

Thanks Hun,
That makes heaps of sense! The only reason that I was looking for sizes is I am getting married in May 09, and people keep asking when I want to go dress shopping, I am like eh, I want to try and get healthier and fitter before I go there. So they all ask what size I will aim for!

I googled around the web quite a lot to work out I would need to be about 90kg to fit size 16's and that looks about right for my height as I get closer, I recommend you do the same or ask people? It wasn't easy to find info but if you're willing to search for it and do a few calculations the info is out there :mrgreen:
