The Average American Woman is a Size 14- What's your size?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Several times a year I hear that a size 14 is average. What size do you wear? And because everyone is shaped differently, what is your height and weight? What is your dream size?


I am 5'2". I was wearing a size 14 last winter when I weighed 180 lbs. I have since lost 40 lbs. I now wear a size 6 and weigh 140. I want to lose another 15 lbs. and get down to a size 4.

I'm honestly not sure right now.  I just had a baby and I can't get back into my jeans yet.  Before this pregnancy I was a size 1.  I'm 5'5" and was 112 before this pregnancy.  I'm still at 134 now and I had my baby a little over 2 weeks ago.

I'm 5'3", 140 and I wear an 8/9. I'd like to lose about 15 but I'm not trying very hard at the moment.

Size 10. I'm 5 ft and weigh about 135. Some days I'd like to be a 6 or even an 8, but then my dh grabs me by my fluffy hips and lays one on me, and I'm perfectly happy with my shape. The man can't keep his hands off my slightly puffy shape.

Depends on the brand but in jeans/shirts, usually 00. Tops is small or medium, depending on the cut.  I'm 5'1" and weigh 90#.  I'd like to be a size 5.  It's harder than a lot of people think to find anything in 00.

I wear a 0-2 depending on the brand. I'm 5'8 and somewhere around 130lbs.
