Looking for some guide as to what size I might be at 5"8 and 198 lbs. I like my curves and don't want to get super-skinny but may want to adjust my goal as I'm nearing the 1/2 way mark.

I know everyone is a bit different - but all comments are welcome! Thanks a bunch!

A healthy weight for your height seems to be around 150...I'm 5"6 and hated the way I looked at 198. I guess it depends on the person.

I was a size 14/16, L/XL shirt when I was that weight and I'm 5'8"

At 5'7 and ~200 lbs I was a size 14/16 and still had plenty of curves!

I am 5'8" and when I was at 195 I was fitting into a size 14. I am currently 160 now and am a size 6.

that's a hard question to answer, you could be anywhere between 14 to 18, size has more to do with measuremeants. I look smaller than I am, i have more fat than muscle so it really depends, you might have to wait til you get closer to your goal.

size 16

I am 5'9 and at 198 I wore around a 14.

I'd guess a 16. I was a 14 at 180 and I am 5'9".

I'm 5'7" and 195 right now and 14/16 seems to be about right for bottoms. For tops it totally depends on the brand and cut - Large for some, XL for others.

I am 5'8 and was size 16 or XL at 198. I am now 188 and moving into 14s (16 is really loose, but I am not a comfortable 14 quite yet).

My guestimate is size 14. I am 203 and i'm 5'9 and I'm a size 16, but they are a bit ill-fitting though. A 14 is still a bit snug, but I think by the time I make it to 198, they will be PERFECT!!

I wore size 16 bottoms at 198 (and at 188 still) and my tops were mostly L. I have a big booty though so it takes me a lot of weight to change sizes.

I'm 5'8" at 152 lbs. Still have beautiful healthy curves. I'm about size 8 comfortably. I carry my weight around my belly though.
