  •  Yep... (none)
    I used to fit into a size four, but then i grew another six inches (i'm 5'10") and doubt i could break size ten. That's fine, i guess, though i do have some body image issues of my own. (In the interests of full disclosure i'm not precisely what most people consider strictly female, but that's a different story.)

    My sister, on the other hand, is slightly taller than i am and she fits into around a 5 or 6. The difference isn't just weight, though i'm a fair bit heavier. I currently wear around 14-16, though that's been slightly tight recently (been neglecting my Aikido recently), but that's what my last round of clothes were.

      it's more about health than it is about weight  - and attitude, in how a person carries themselves (you grew six inches? I don't think I've ever grown six inches in my life. That is why I am only 21" tall. )

      (Actually I'm 5'4", and at this point shrinking)

      •  Growing six inches... (none)
        In between my junior and senior years (IIRC) in high school i grew about six inches. It was very, very bizarre. I'd much rather give those six inches back and be shorter again, but that's not really my call.

        I agree that health plays a big deal with respect to body image.
