    BMI is rubbish if you have more than average body muscle for your height/weight.
    Mine's about 25-26 and i'm a size 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.
    How does that work? I'm 9st 6 and 5"6 - BMI is 21. Yet I'm a size 12.

    I went to buy some new trousers in H&M yesterday and I tried on a size 10 and I couldn't even do up the zip. I would not dare squat down, they'd split open!

    Twice in a row I've squeezed into 12's, they've been tight and uncomfortable yet I feel too ashamed to buy 14's for my self esteem.

    Dress sizes are mental.

    Muscle is a lot heavier than fat! I've got a low body fat percentage! I weigh about 11 stone 4/5 but i have a 25 inch waist.
    I took notice of bmi a couple years back and it said i was overweight so i lost weight and to do that i was literally eating about 700-800 cals a day and walking for at least 3 hours :l I got down to just under 9 stone and i was literally muscle (what was left) and bone, hardly any flab and i was a size 8 when i had been size 10-12 before at 12 stone. I grew up doing swimming, gymnastics and 5 kinds of dance though combined with a physical job!

    Loads of things such as actual measurements affect it and what body shape you are. For example, my waist is 24.5" meaning on that alone I'd be a size 6. However that's not going to happen with my boobs and hips, so I have to get a 10 usually. I have a friend with a bigger waist than me, but because she's straight up and down, she's a smaller clothes size. It all depends on the girl to be honest.

    i find size 8 is just tooo close fitting and i feel all exposed, however i dont want to admit a size 12 so I stick with a solid 10 :cute:

    I dunno exactly what my BMI is at the moment because I have no scales and I fluctuate quite a bit. But it's usually 18-19, and I'm a size 10 at 5'11.

    My BMI is around 25 - 26 and my dress size is a 12 on bottom usually and 14 on top for my boobies AND that extra tyre . I think the smallest I could be is a 10 and that's my aim for this summer. Don't mind if I stay larger on top just as long as its just because of my boobs lol

    I'm a size 12 and very happy with my figure... yes I am a pretty strange girl :P I don't personally know my BMI as I feel healthy and do enough exercise etc etc

    Plus BMI doesn't take muscles into account, so I don't want to worry myself over nothing :/

    The thing is though, I am short - a girl with the exact same BMI could be sizes bigger than me just through being all round proportionally gianter.

    So really, upon a moment's thought your question is a bit useless to you OP (sorry)
