It would appear to me that the options for a lady to describe her size are very subjective.


That's true. I never knew that there were so many words to describe fat chicks until I discovered internet dating. It's been very educational.

The average dress size for women in the uk is a 14/16 .
I used to have average up on my profile as thats what size i was up untill last year when i gave up smoking and gained a few pounds,so now have a few extra pounds up.
Well i kept relapsing with the fags,still cant have a drink and not have a fag,but i am loosing the wieght i gained so will be back to average soon i hope
They should have an option where you can put your dress size as i think when you have a few extra pounds as the option,it can be decieving and alot of people see it as being really big.

I agree with that i think if you have a view to meeting someone you have to be honest,what would be the point in lying.
I always have loads of different pics on my msn and will be honest about my size,a couple of times in the past before going on dates i had,had chats via web cam with them so they knew exactly what i looked like before hand.

Average UK size is 16 as has been said, but the fact is this is not fat. I'm a size 14 now, I want to be a size 12 again but I am continually told off for putting myself down as I am apparently not fat, but to myself I am. Its probably a problem of where I have my weight rather than the weight that I am but only I can change that.

BMI is a pointless thing as muscle is heavier than fat so anyone that is slightly muscular is going to have a higher BMI than someone who isn't. A good mate of mine is built like a brick house and its all muscle but his BMI makes him clinically obese.

Body fat index is slightly more accurate as it says how much fat is in your body but its not an easy thing to do on your own.

Reading these posts I am now in a dilemma. I thought I was 'average' (although lacking somewhat in the bust area) but i wear size 10/12 in clothes. If 14/16 is average and I'm definitely not 'thin' or 'athletic' - aaaaagh I'm a misfit
