Jeans- size 9.
8s are too small, 10s 'just fit' until I wash them, then they are too big.
I have to either by brand name (levi's) in size 9, or size 8 no name and wear/wash them a couple of times to get them to fit.

There are a lot of people on this thread who are size 8, but don't stress about it. Without knowing them, you can't know if they are naturally thin, or whther it's something they have to really work at. My natural size is 12, but if I work my absolute butt off I can be a size 10. I will never in a million years be a size 8, and would look ridiculous if I was.
They reckon jeans shopping is as stressful as shopping for bathers, as it's so hard to get a pair to look great and it can make a person feel they carry weight in all the wrong places.
If you're fit and healthy and kind to yourself, that's all that matters. I think Ishty's original point was how fantastic it is that we are all great mums, no matter what our shape or size, and if we do lose a few kg through taking better care of ourselves, then that should be celebrated too.
No one should feel bad about themselves because of this thread

I wear Size 7 but the only pair I have is size 8 and they're a bit loose but I'm pregnant so that will come in handy until I have to get new pants.
I don't think of sizes as big so much as how they look on the person wearing them. Eg. If you are a size 14 and wearing size 18 I will think your jeans are big.

I totally believe that effort towards health (mental, emotional, physical or otherwise) should be recognised and the OP should be applauded but this holy grail of pants size just grates.
ETA, Sorry went OT.

I was a size 6-8 before pregnancy, put on 22kgs during pregnancy, then a year after I lost weight and got down to a size 10. Now due to health conditions and just pure laziness I have let myself get to the biggest I have ever been! Working on it now though.....I looked the healthiest when I was size 10-12. Size 6-8 was way too thin for my height and build.
