    i've been a size 14 and a size 4 and I definitely think I look best at a size 8/10 and still good at a 12. i'm 5 foot 2.
    It differs for everyone but I think most people look best at a 10/12.
    I'm a size 6/8 at the moment and trying to get up a size, but in a way that doesn't involve just eating cakes and getting flabby I'd like to be able to wear strapless dresses please!

    :rofl: I'm used to that reaction.

    I know a guy who's 6'2 and I have to look properly up at him!

    I'm almost 5'10 and nearly always feel like the tall girl!

    With my small frame, size 6-8 looks best.

    12. Anything else and I would look ridiculous. I'm 5'9, and curvy. I've been a 10 and looked ill, so 12 it is.

    5'10 is classified as tall for a girl, as the average is 5ft 5 I think, or 5ft 6.

    I was 5'10 at 12 (!), and my parents were worried, so I got referred to a 'growth specialist' who said not to worry as I'd probably just had my growth spurt early. The 'growth specialist' got that wrong though!

    The worst thing is, girls can grow up to the age of 18, and I'm still 17. Therefore there is the potential for me to grow a bit more. I'm hoping I've stopped though.

    Do you like being that tall? I mean, it must be like impossible for you to get fat. :p:
    Plus, long legs and all that. You just need an incredibly tall boyfriend.

    Back down to where I was this time last year at an 8/10 rather than a 12ish. I looked an awful lot better then and would love to be able to look good in some of those outfits again!

    10. I'm already there on top, wouldn't mind losing a bit on the thighs and getting down to a 10 (currently a 12) on bottom as well. I've got pretty broad hips though, so it probably wouldn't work, size 10 trousers wouldn't fit over them! I think I'd just look dead at a size 8, I have quite a broad frame (shoulders/hips) so I'm pretty happy with my size.

    Like anything, it has it's pros and cons, for example:

    Pro: I can reach high shelves
    Con: People in shops keep asking me to get things off high shelves for them, as they can't reach, and usually this happens when I'm in a hurry

    Pro: Long legs
    Con: Getting trousers that are long enough (my inside leg is 36")

    Pro: I stand out
    Con: I stand out

    You get the idea.

    On the whole I like it though, apart from the lack of tall guys, as they tend to get snapped up by shorter girls. Leave the tall guys for us tall girls! :rofl:

    Im 5ft 11 and my ideal dress size varies, I would love to be a 6, however this isnt possible as I have rather large boobs and matching hips, so im an 8 size 6 around the waist tho.

    My inside leg is 36 and i just avoid wearing jeans or trousers. I always wear a pair of 4"+ heels aswell, I like being able to look over everyone.

    I think I size 10, and I am a size 10 atm so I'm quite happy. But I have to wear 12's because of my boobs sometimes, which is annoying, but I don't suppose it's a bad thing. They should invent a 11 really.
