    I've seen in magazines that UK size 16 is the national average size for a woman in Britain
    Was just curious to see what everybodys size was?
    Is 16 actually an accurate average?
    And what size would you like to be? (boys answer what size you would like girls to be..)

    I'd just like to say that the results you'll get here won't actually be an accurate average...
    1) It would be an average for TSR
    2) Not everyone in TSR is going to post

    I'd like to be a perfect size 8.

    well no i was just gathering a sort of idea
    it would be an average of some sort
    not everybody on tsr is fat
    neither is everybody on tsr thin.

    I t hink it just averages out, like there's one town up north or something that has 3/4 overweight people or something ridiculous. Whereas some other areas may have a high proportion of thin people for example.

    Well most people on TSR are going to be teenagers and adolescents so wont get much 16's and the average etc

    But I'm a size 10 and wouldnt want to be any other size as I think 10 is the best one in my opinion at least for my height.

    There are probably just lots more morbidly obese people than stick insect people. And since you can get much much fatter than you can lighter, that's going to skew the stats a bit.

    im a size 8/10.

    and im 5ft 11

    but because of my height i always have to buy sise 10 trousers, for the length, so i reckon height has a lot to do with it,


    as for national average,
    id say 12 is more realistic,

    well obviously 16 isnt going to be the average size amongst teenagers, but when you incorporate everyone else in society it bumps it up to include all the fat menopausal chicks.

    I'm a size 8, i wouldnt want to be any other dress size but i wouldnt mind losing 5lbs.

    I'm a size 14, making my way to hopefully be a 10-12. I wouldn't want to be any smaller than that though.
