    picture removed - experiment over

    okay enough is enough.

    I'm size 16

    so basically you were all wrong, and it proves my point doesn't it. That people who go on about size 10/12 being overweight clearly have a warped sense of perspective.

    12, maybe. I'm not very good at judging this sort of thing.

    But now... your post doesn't actually make much sense.

    I got a tad confused as there was no picture. It's not a warped view though, surely it's more dependent on what peoples preferences are? One person may have an idealised image of a girl and that's one who is a size 8, and so to THEM, a size 12 is overweight however when people say "overweight" I'm not sure weight is the right term as obviously it's more like body structure along with the weight. A girl can be a size 14-16 and be a healthy weight for her height and bone structure.

    technically though I'm not even (BMI wise) a healthy weight for my height. I AM overweight. Yet people all guessed incorrectly and placed me at a lower weight than I actually am.
    It just goes to show that if somebody says they're a size 16, it doesn't necessarily have to mean billowing rolls of fat!
    It shows that peoples perspectives when it comes to judging dress sizes isn't very accurate. So people who say "oh yeh, anything above a 12 is enormous" clearly don't really know what a 12 is at all!

    Well my girlfriend is 14-16(depends on the style of clothing obviously) and so I know this already. But yes I suppose it's a little like the confusion some seem to have with breast size and how it links with cup and back measurement, in that many think the cup is the only thing which seems to matter where as a 36C is clearly bigger then a 28D volume wise.
