Oprah's trainer and co-author Bob Greene was asked how many pounds you need to lose to go down a dress size, by an audience member... He said 10 lbs  and he also indicated that the closer you get to your target weight you may need to lose 15 pounds to go down another size.

However you may be able to go down a size in less than 10 lbs (more like 8) if you are doing weight resistance exercises daily then muscle weighs more than fat on the scale however it takes up less space so is smaller in sizes.

Have you already tried it on? It's not how much weight you need to lose, it's how many inches. Check out the Weight Loss group, they have tons of idea!

 Thats a good question because I don't remember the difference but I wore a very different size wedding gown than I do regular clothes or dresses, so find out the difference first of all. THEN you can go by the guidelines I shared by Oprah's trainer and author
