Final pant/dress size?



Recommended Posts

I started my journey at a UK 32-34, I’m 2 years post op and am now a UK size 6 although I’m just about to embark on my next journey to fix the left over skin and I weight lift too so I expect I’ll be a bit smaller once I’m further along that path too 😉

I just want to share this. Today I went to Walmart and tried on jeans. In Levis, I wear an 8. But when I found these High Waist Skinny Jeans I tried on 3 pair. Now I usually wear 8's and 10's with all of the other pants. I had to get a size 12!!! I hate that there are so many different sizes, this is why I never buy anything without trying them on. I have made the mistake of buying some pants online and then had to go thru the hassle of returning them. THAT is SOMETHING I hate to do!!! Well heck, I hate everything that pertains to clothes shopping!! Hate to try them on and etc. I did go a little crazy at first, just look in my closet. LOL I guess it is a guess and bicollie.

I'm curious where everyone who has gotten to goal has rounded out, size-wise, compared to where you started.

I wore a size 20 on the day I was sleeved. By the time I reached goal I was wearing a size 2 to size 4 depending on the clothing designer or manufacturer.

I’m 5’6, the highest size I wore was an 18 at 239. At 242 for my revision I was wearing 16s (8/8/17) yesterday I purchased jeans in size 12. They’re a bitt snug but my 14s are getting too big. I also always work 2x or 3x tops. I just purchased T-shirt’s in a large. My crescent roll stick out a bit but my other T-shirt’s in xxl are like dresses.

That’s very interesting! I am only a few weeks post and I started at a size 18 but I was 295. Crazy how everyone’s body is shaped and proportioned differently!



I was just thinking that in my head bc I too started at a 295 and wore a 18 ...But the way I was shaped no one ever believed that I weighed that much.

Sizes are messed up, each manufacturer is so different and vanity sizing is crazy. I have been married 29+ years. My wedding dress was an 8. In those days there was a store called 5,7,9. They were the "small size experts". Things like 00, 0, 1 and 2's and even 4's didn't exist.
I am 5'6". Most people on here are not listing height. A year ago I weighed 248. Had VSG last Halloween and currently weigh 138.
At surgery I was wearing tight 18's in pants. I am bottom heavy. Tops were an XL in regular sizes. Rarely did I need a 1X in tops or dresses.
I now wear a 6 on the bottom and small tops in most brands. I still have some 8 pants that are okay and some 6's that are saggy on my butt.
My daughter is getting married in a couple of weeks. My mother of the bride dress is a fitted 6 and is honestly pretty roomy on my waist.
My girls and I have gotten out my old size 8 wedding dress. It seriously fits my oldest daughter. She is barely over 100 pounds and wears 1's and 2's. My other 2 daughters are 8's in most clothes. My wedding dress doesn't come close to fitting them or me!
I am happy I can wear a 6 but sizes are dumb. I am not small at all, no one would look at me currently and call me skinny.
No wonder they have 00, 0, and 1's and 2's now. It's insane.

I started in a size 20, am now wearing a size 2 or xs. I thought a size 6 was ambitious when i was starting.

People come in all shapes and sizes..at 5'3" and 230 I wore a size 22 Levi's...At 201 I can still wear them, they are baggy but not falling off me. Today I am wearing size 18 levis, they are a little snug. I am def of the apple shape variety, as most of my weight is right in the middle.
