What size is this woman?

My sister says she looks to be a US size 8, but I think she is way bigger. Probably a US size 16.

by Anonymousreply 9301/14/2015

12 US / 10 UK

by Anonymousreply 112/28/2012

If she's 5'9", she's about a size 12. She carries it well.

by Anonymousreply 212/28/2012

It says she is 5'10". She looks great.

by Anonymousreply 312/28/2012

I meant 5'10"

by Anonymousreply 412/28/2012

About a U.S. size 10.

She is no where near a size 16, it's sad that you would consider her obese.

by Anonymousreply 512/28/2012

Here she was a few pounds slimmer.

by Anonymousreply 612/28/2012

Why is there an entire article criticizing this woman's body? It's funny that the comments section shows more maturity than the news article.

by Anonymousreply 712/28/2012

Are 29 year old women suuposed to have that much cellulite? She's not obese, but she is overweight.

by Anonymousreply 812/28/2012

Where did OP call her obese? Even at a size 16, she would not be obsese at 5'10". Overweight, yes, but not obese.

by Anonymousreply 912/28/2012

She's probably a size 12, but her bikini is more like a size 8.

by Anonymousreply 1012/28/2012

I'm envious of her waist.

That's breedin material.

I'm 36D and wear a US size 10/12. She's far, far bigger than me, especially her flat behind. Her pants size must be at least US 14 if not US 16. By the way many clothes now come small, medium, and large or are made to stretch, so that you can gain or lose 20 lbs and can still wear the same items.

How tall are you R13?

R13, how tall are you?

Her suit looks like an 8. She's about a 12. Not fat, but wrong-sized. She'd be fine in a better suit.

I'm 5'4" with very long, athletic legs and toned behind.

She is a fat sow.

by Anonymousreply 1812/28/2012

She is closer to 16 than to size 8. Says she is 5'10" so I am guessing she weighs about 180 190.

by Anonymousreply 1912/28/2012

I;'d guess she's a solid 180 too.

by Anonymousreply 2012/28/2012

NO WAY that's a size 8.

She's at least a US 12/14.

by Anonymousreply 2112/28/2012

She's a 14, and there's an entire article on her appearance because she's parading her fat ass around in a swimsuit that's at least two sizes too small and not even age appropriate for a grown woman.

Sorry, but she's a cow. R3 you need glasses.

This woman gets away with calling herself a fashion designer? And she admires Anna Nicole? What a fucking joke. Are there no standards anymore? At all? So all we need to do is flash our pussy on the internet and launch a fashion career off of this.

[r22] just adores the "gamine" body of self starvation victims like Audrey Hepburn.

She's not a cow, R22. She could lose a few pounds, but her midsection is tight.

by Anonymousreply 2412/28/2012

R22, you're a fucking idiot. She's not skinny, but she's certainly not a fat cow either. Wow.

by Anonymousreply 2512/28/2012

I'm 5'4" size 6. She looks fat, no two ways about it I have never come close to looking her size. If she is 5'4" or taller, she is minimim a size 12 in the United States.

by Anonymousreply 2712/28/2012

I'd say 14. Of course, pics add pounds so it's hard to say.

by Anonymousreply 2812/28/2012

Remember this? When people actually gave a shit? This woman... THIS woman, and man, are feeling the need to lose a few.

I liked this standard much better. Everyone is such a slob now and we're so worried about hurting feelings or getting sued that no one identifies a person as being ft until that person has furniture collapsing under their ass.

by Anonymousreply 2912/28/2012

She does NOT look "great" by any stretch of the imagination!

She looks, at best, normal (meaning "overweight").

That too-small swimsuit isn't doing her any favors, either. She could look a hell of a lot better if she stopped trying to jam herself into a small size.

She's overweight. Deal with it.

by Anonymousreply 3012/28/2012

The camera doesn't add cellulite R28, and the camera might add 10lbs, not 50.

For reference, here's Katie Green, a size 8/10 (USA), 12 (UK) model

by Anonymousreply 3212/28/2012

Size 14 pants, M-L size clothing on top.

by Anonymousreply 3312/28/2012

R32, that woman at your link is no size US 8/10. No way. She's about a 14 too.

by Anonymousreply 3412/28/2012

Katie's slimmer than Josie. She's not a 14.

by Anonymousreply 3512/28/2012

R35, looking at the pics Josie look taller and smaller. Except for Josie's big tits.

by Anonymousreply 3612/28/2012

Josie's bigger in the rear too.

by Anonymousreply 3712/28/2012

R32, I agree with R34 - that's not a size 8 or 10 US. A 12 US at the very least. Her "campaign" shots are obviously 'shopped, as the ones at the beach, she is much fleshier. Looks the same size as the chick at OP's link.

by Anonymousreply 3812/28/2012

Those aren't size 8 thighs (esp if she's 5'10"), but great tits! She's lovely.

by Anonymousreply 3912/28/2012

I would say she is at least a 14, probably a 16. No way, no how, even with the vainest vanity sizing is she an 8.

Also? 29 my Aunt Fanny.

Lizzie Miller was 5'11", 180, size 12 here.

by Anonymousreply 4112/28/2012

Your question has no meaning. Clothing sizes in the US have not been standardized for decades. We've been over this many, many times.

Her suit (which may be an 8, 10, 16, whatever depending on the manufacturer) is too small. Beyond that, those who answer are talking out of their...hats.

by Anonymousreply 4212/28/2012

Robin Lawley used to be a much sought after plus model, but even she (Like Crystal Renn), has caved and lost weight to get more work. While I think Crystal looks better with more weight, Robin (at link), looks much better thinner IMO.

by Anonymousreply 4312/28/2012

It genuinely depends on her height. As someone with similiar proportions at 5"7 I'd say she is easily a 12 pant given the hips and butt. Definitely not a 16 though. Dress size obviously would be bigger to accommodate her boobs.

by Anonymousreply 4412/28/2012

She's a US 14.

No one who is 5'4" has "very long" legs.

She's a US 16 in lines like Banana Republic and J Crew

She's a US 14 in Old Navy and Ann Taylor

by Anonymousreply 5012/29/2012

I'd also guess a 36DD.

by Anonymousreply 5112/29/2012

R49, I'm totally out of proportion, there's very little space between by breasts and hips, so yes that description would be totally accurate. I wear tunics as dresses, for example.

by Anonymousreply 5212/29/2012

I think she's US size 14.

by Anonymousreply 5312/29/2012

R49, I have seen any number of short statured women with short torsos ("short-waisted" seems to fit R52s description of her body) and comparatively long legs. There are professional dancers on Broadway and in ballet companies who are built this way. It's about proportion, not stature.

by Anonymousreply 5612/29/2012

Click on the link to see what a plus size US size 12-14 model look like. Check out the photo in the white swimsuit and you can tell the models legs and butt are several times larger than your model OP.

Based on this comparison your model is closer to an 8 but is probably about a size 10-12.

by Anonymousreply 5712/29/2012

I've actually been anything from an 8 to a 16 - she's a US 12.

by Anonymousreply 5812/29/2012

R57, that is not a 12 unless she's 4'9".

Check out this chart. You can search by height plus weight or height plus pant size.

This is 5'"10" and a size 12

THIS is where it gets crazy.

ALL these women are 5'10" and a size 16. However, they are different shapes and weights.

by Anonymousreply 6112/29/2012

Now for height and weight only.

All of these women are 5'10" and 200lbs. But they wear sizes 14 - 18

by Anonymousreply 6212/29/2012

She's a lard ass, a watermellon bottom, a shapely mess.

I would say she's a Louise Jefferson till the waist, then she's Oprah from the waist down.

by Anonymousreply 6312/29/2012

R54, Thank you for helping me.

R55, Is you body PERFECT? Yes, R54 gave a better explanation, of being very short-waisted with comparatively long legs.

This woman is apparently being stalked by the Daily Mail. Here she is in 2010 with the same headline story trying to shame her for her weight and her swimsuit choice.

by Anonymousreply 6512/29/2012

Now here she is again with the same weight shaming storyline in 2011.

This must be the Daily Mail annual holiday special to make all the over indulgers feel better about themselves. Look, ho ho ho, there's someone fatter wearing the wrong bikini.

by Anonymousreply 6612/29/2012

I dated a woman who was 5'9 and 140 lbs, 36D with no gut, hourglass but not huge hips, and she was a size 10/12. This woman has about 40-50 lbs on her, a much bigger waist, wider hips, and fatter ass. So I would have to say she is bigger than 8, and probably closer to 16.

I have also known a size 22 woman who was not much bigger than this lady.

by Anonymousreply 6812/29/2012

I dated a woman who is 5'9", 135, 34D/DD, and she was a size 6.

by Anonymousreply 6912/29/2012

Since this is what a size 22 woman looks like, I think R68 is full of it. Some women like to exaggerate the size of other women because of their own insecurities so I'm not surprised by the ridiculous guess.

by Anonymousreply 7012/29/2012

These are also all size 22's

by Anonymousreply 7612/30/2012

She's a size 12. There's a little spare tire, but not much, if she didn't have that I would put her at a ten.

If you think about it her arms and legs are small. Her breasts are a decent size, but there is nothing to put her pass a size 12.

by Anonymousreply 7712/30/2012

True, it's actually smaller. More like a 6 or as 8. See link

Only Americans and Brits would consider this woman 'normal' sized. She is fat.

by Anonymousreply 8512/30/2012

I went to Columbia Sportswear to buy hiking pants today. The smallest women's size they carry is size 2 and they were too big for me (I ended up a boy's 14/16 and they are a bit big in the waist).

I did not used to have this problem of not being able to buy clothes off the rack (back in the 70s). I used to be able to buy men's Levi 26 inch waist pants just about everywhere that jeans were sold. Now, the smallest size seems to be a 30.

by Anonymousreply 8604/16/2014

It's really hard to tell what size a woman is by looking at her in a bikini, or by weight. You need measurements. She may not be entirely proportionate from top to bottom either, though that's usually more of an issue with shorter women.

Perhaps that is because you are always searching for size 42/30.

by Anonymousreply 9001/14/2015

R90, no. Just never saw them. I was a pretty skinny teen and always wore a 28 with a belt. Not that size any longer! Thankfully I filled out. 32/34.

by Anonymousreply 9101/14/2015

16 or 18. Probably closer to 18.
