    I have a BMI of about 29. I'm a size 16- 18 and want to be about a 14 (possibly lower but don't think that's gonna happen lol).

    I was wondering what my BMI would have to be for me to be that size, so thought I would ask you guys for a little comparison. I know everyone is different but it could be interesting.

    Here's a good BMI calculator: http://www.bbc.co.uk/health/tools/bm...ator/bmi.shtml

    So all I really want to know is your BMI and UK dress size.
    BMI isn't really helpful, neither is dress size. I think mines somewhere between 18-19 (it was 18.5 last time I checked so I'm just giving an estimate) and I'm an 8-10.

    Your BMI will not always necessarily correlate with your dress size as it is dependant on your height so it's not a great measurement.

    In any case, my BMI is about 22 and I'm a dress size 10.
    Exactly. I have a BMI of 24 and I'm a dress size 6-8.

    my BMI is 20.5 (i'm 5 ft 8 & weigh 62kgs) and i'm a size 8 - 10, although own a few size 6 things and a few size 12 things so it totally depends...i don't really think you can trust bmi, and also size totally depends on the shop!

    I have a BMI of 30, but fit in sizes 10-16 depending on the shop. Very little 10, obviously! I'm usually a 14/16 on the bottom and a 12 on the top.
    However, it seems that i'm pretty uusual in this, and people with lower BMI's wear bigger sizes... and no, before you ask, I don't have to squeeze into my clothes and have a massive muffin top!

    I agree! And hey, daffodil, you're lucky if you can fit into a size 18 if your BMI is 34 but then everyone says it does depend a lot, I reckon if I was that weight (nearly 18 stone lol I'm tall) I would be about size 22

    26: 14 on top, 16 on bottom.... 5"5'
    And I don't like tight clothes, so I suppose I could get into a size smaller on each, if I wanted to go for the whole 'muffin top' look...
