    StormAngel. I have friends who wear size 16 jeans and look absolutely stunning in them. The number means nothing really.

    im pretty much a size 10 in most things, but it depends on the brand, doesnt it. i can be an 8 in some shops and a 12 in others.
    I still buy size 14/16 kids clothes if they have cute styles.

    12 usually.

    Oops, forgot to answer your other q's! I consider a 16 big but like you said, some size 16 woman look great and then some size 12 women...don't. It's odd.

    as i said in my post, coming from a much larger size, being a 16 IS small.

    dont compare yourself to anyone, 18 kilos is awesome, you should be proud of yourself, im sure you DO look great in your jeans

    ATM I'm a 14. I'm 5 weeks post birth and have 8 kgs to get to my goal weight. My 14s are tight on me and I feel like a fat frump in them. I'm happy with a 12. I'd love to get back into my 10s but my body shape has changed so much after 2 kids that I can't see that ever happening unless I stop eating. For my body shape a 16 is too big. It puts me at 10+ kgs overweight which isn't healthy for me.
    I'm ridiculously jealous of all the mummies in here who wear a size 8.

    Don't be silly loosing 18kgs is a big feat, good on you! looking good also has nothing to do with what size you are.

    My sis is 5'6 and pulls off wearing size 22 jeans, really well. I think it depends on the kind of tops and jumpers she wears with them too.

    Oh and also, my favourite brand of jeans only went upto a size 16 at the time So when I was a size 18 and couldn't find my favourite jeans, I just thought I was too fat to wear jeans and went over to wearing stretchy/dressed pants instead
    I'm sorry, please don't mind me, I'm having one of those nights, getting upset of silly things

    I have gained a lot of weight in a very short space of time, that is my concern more than the actual size of clothing. Health and weight and looking good are not all the same thing.
