I've lost 70 pounds and 7 dress sizes so it's about 10 pounds per size for me.

I have always been told it is 10lbs in a dress size but I suppose it would depend wether you are in the "top" end of your size or the bottom.

I was always told 7lb a size, but as clothes go in 2 size jumps that would be 14lb per dress size ie a 14 - 12 (or 12 - 14 if you are going the wrong way lol)

I felt the same when I was able to use the 2nd clasp on my bra instead of the 1st! Small things, eh!

I have lost 11 but still in the same size but in all fairness i should have been buying bigger clothes. The current size is getting loose in some things but not others. it's only a matter of time before i'm down a size.

About 10 pounds a size for me.

For me I think it's 12-15 lbs. It seems like a lot but I attribute it to being 5'8".
July 4, 2012 5:57 AM
It depends on your size i have gone from 13st 9 to 12st 4 and my trousser size has just gone from a 16 to a 14 but some can feel bit tight as i have a more fuller figure (i have a bum and hips lol). but my top size has gone from a 16-18 to a 12-14 depend on type of top as i am big chested and have square shoulders lol
July 4, 2012 5:57 AM
Iv lost over 50 and was a UK 18 to begin with and im now a comfy 14 or fitted 12.

Wish i could have dropped one with every 7lbs haha! Everyones different :) x

I'm nearly down 3 dress sizes. I'm not quite there on the 3rd yet :-)
July 4, 2012 5:58 AM
I think it all depends on where you gain most of your weight. Like I have big hips and thighs so for me so far I've lost 20 lbs before the site and 15 since being on this this and I've only dropped 2 sizes, however I'm almost in a size smaller than now, it would just be a little too tight for my liking.
July 4, 2012 5:59 AM
i was 13st 13 and a size 16 botton and 14-16 top .. 5"7

now i am 10 st 8 and a size 12-14 on the bottom and 10-12 on top ...

So i look different but didnt go down that many dress sizes...
July 4, 2012 5:59 AM
Its about 14lbs for me, maybe a few pounds more.

I was going to say 15 pounds for me.
By numbers would be 2 sizes, but by actual clothing options one "dress size".

When I got sick a couple of years ago and dropped 23lbs in 3 weeks because I couldn't eat (due to an infected gallbladder), that's how much it took for me to drop a size.
