174cms, 56kg and BMI of 18 which just puts me in the underweight category but I'm by all means NOT underweight. I wear an 8-10 on the bottom and 6-8 on top.
I have a very curvy body and so have bigger thighs and bum and hips. I'm trying to lose another 6kgs but something tells me I'll never be happy with my body

I'm 164cm and 57.5kg (bmi 21.4) and wear size 8-10 and xs-s clothes. I have an athletic build, I do pushups on my toes and am a decent runner, so I accept that I have what i call 'hockey thighs' during hockey season- my body just puts on muscle pretty easily. I'm fairly happy with my body, it's injury free and does anything I want it to do. When I was 55kg a few years ago quite a few friends were concerned that I was too skinny, so probably the weight I am now is fine.
As far as clothes go, as I'm always a 10 or under if a 10 was too small for me I'd be going for a run asap, so yes size does matter to me. I know logically that sizing can be all over the shop but for the clothes and brands I usually buy it's fairly consistent.

Pre pregnancy I was 76kg, 172cm and a bmi of 26 (using online calculator due to measurements etc. though I don't ind them accurate at all)
I am sitting in a size 12, i'm happy. I've been as high as a size 18 and sat in 16's for several years, to be down to a size is an amazing feeling

I'm 170cm, (at the moment) 71kg and I'm not very happy with my weight. I'm happiest at 67-68kg but I've put a little on recently. I think I look too skinny if I go under 67kg.
BMI is useless for me, because I put on muscle mass really easily when I do weights etc so even if there's not much fat on me, I still will have a disproportionate result on the BMI scale compared to my actual size. I go by waist measurement instead as it's a more accurate risk assessment guide. My waist is usually 4-5cm under the recommended 80cm for women so I'm happy .
Oh, and as an aside, I'm anywhere from a size 10 to size 18 depending on the store. I think Australian women's clothing sizing is RIDICULOUS and needs to be standardised asap. DH can't buy clothes as a nice suprise for me because any time he's tried, he's asked my size and it's been the right size that he's gotten but it doesn't fit because it's either way too big or way too small!

I am 164cms and 107kg just under 38 weeks pregnant (yay not long to go). I have always been larger, at 16 I was in size 14 clothes and have just gone up since then. When I got pregnant with my first (shes 2 now) I weighed 100kg, got up to 112kg with her and then once I had her breastfeeding took me down to 90kg (I was HAPPY) then I got pregnant with this one I was 97kg and have gone up after initially losing 2kgs in the first 20weeks of pregnancy (don't know how that happened). Hoping to lose a good 20 - 30kg in the first year after I have had my girl, gonna be lots of walking with the toddler in the stroller and bubs in the ERGO!!!!! With my first I just sat around all day and lost the weight with breastfeeding so hoping this time the walking plus breastfeeding will drop more off than the 22kg I lost the first time.

I am a size 8 top and bottom with no bust whatsoever after BF at 170cm and weigh 50.5kg which is BMI 17.4
BMI does not take into account shape which is why it shouldn't be used. Under 17.5 is anorexic which is rubbish because I am slim and healthy

I'm 177cm, 68kg and size 12, though I do fit my size 11 jeans. I carry any extra weight on my bum and thighs, but breastfeeding DD for the last 6 months seems to have helped shift some weight (plus I suppose I have been eating less).

156cm 47kg BMI 19 size 8 I have a huge problem buying clothes as my boobs are DD and are totally huge and out of proportion to the rest of me, I hate them and I hate having an hourglass figure as NOTHING in the shops suits me, everything is way too long in the body, so no I'm not happy with my size/shape

I'm 173cm and around 73-74kgs, BMI about 24 I think..
I also have a muscular frame.. Am I happy with my body? Yes and no.. Weight wise I am happy, shape wise I am not.. Need to get back to the gym to tone me up a bit.. I fit into size 12 on the bottom (although a 13 is ideal, and very hard to find!!) and a 10-12 on the top depending on where I shop..
As for BMI I dont really believe it, as I dont think it is an accurate representaion of ones true size/health/fitness level etc.. My DH is classed as obese.. He is 190cm about 115 kgs and if he was in his 'healthy' weight range he would look so sick and unhealthy!! As long as you are happy with yourself who care what the number is.. You could be a BMI of 18 or of 28 and still be heathier than someone in the designated 'healthy' weigh range..
