I'm about a 14 at the moment and I'm not really keen. My trouble is that around size 10 I'm pretty close to a perfect hourglass but when I put on weight, it mostly goes on my bottom half and I end up much more pear shaped. So no, I was more comfortable when I was smaller (and slowly but surely getting back there again!)
I'm a size 14 at the bottom but take a size 16 at top due to my boobs lol, I am comfortable with this size. The only thing that bothers me is I don't have a flat stomach but with dedication this summer I'll try my best. I like my size. Not too thin, not too fat.

So I read in an article that women who are size 14 are happiest with themselves. In your own experience is that true? Reason I ask is I personally find women with this size/shape very sexy but I find if they're curvier like this, they're often fat. Im certainly no perfectionist and don't mind if she has a little bit extra chub, hardly expecting a Britney Spears washboard mid-rift. Female celebs I find hot are Kate Winslet and Nigella Lawson, haha.
Anyway, I seem to find few girls with this shape around, i.e curvy with booty and breasts, full bodied:
I'm a 14-16 depending on where I shop.
I'm really happy with how I look most days, but everyone has rubbish days where they feel fat etc.
It's got a lot to do with being in proportion. I have an hourglass, but just wish my boobs were a bit bigger!
I'd probably be even happier if I was a 12 but I'm losing weight the healthy way
Kelly Brook = perfect body
sizes are weird. So much depends on your bone structure etc etc etc. Of course 'ideally' *cough* we're all supposed to be size 6, tanned, blonde with flawless features.
I really think you have to look at each person for who they are... there was one music teacher I had once.. she must have been a size 14ish and my god, she was curvy BABE! (and that's coming from a straight girl! haha)
