  • I dont think there is really a way to difine it, I think normal size depends on every person. Some bodies can have no fat and still look a bit bigger, and some can have lots of it, and look small. I guess I think of normal as having some chunk to them, but not being overly overweight. It really does depend on how a person carriers their weight though.

    This is pretty much exactly what I was going to say. :)

  • Depends on the woman's build and height. I'd say size 7-13 depending on the woman.

  • If you look on the clearance racks you will notice that the sizes there are more of a selection are either really big or really small, making the sizes missing in between average or just to ugly to wear! lol

  • Well the average size women is 5'4'' and weighs 145lbs has 36C boobs. But normal? You'd have to define the word. Everyone would think of it different. I think it would become increasingly bigger as the people became bigger and vise versa. In the United States, we would probably think of a women that wears anywhere from a 5 to a 9 normal(ish) but in other countries it's different (*cough* FRANCE). I personally think anyone that doesn't look like a 6' tall 100 lb model is normal. Normal just varies from country to country. state to state, city to city, person to person.

  • I really can't put one size to it because there are so many different body shapes and heights and stuff.

  • I think I'm kind of blind to body shapes and sizes. It's weird, but if someone is trying to ask me about a certain person, to figure out if we are talking about the same person, and they are describing their weight or clothing size, I just have no clue. Unless someone is extremely skinny, like anorexic, or morbidly obese, everyone just kind of looks the same to me. I can't guess a size or a weight for anything. We have a family member or two who can glance at somebody they know and say that they have lost five pounds since they last were together, but I couldn't tell you for anything. Maybe it's because I really have never been self concious about it. I don't even know how much I weigh and couldn't guess, and I don't own a scale.
