Hey girls - what size makes you feel the most confident?

What dress size makes you feel the most pretty, sexy, confident? I think that's a size 6 for me. I'm not there yet.

My confidence isn't in my size, thankfully.

The last time I was a size 6, I think I was 12. LOL

My clothing size isn't nearly as relevant as how I look in them. Clothing sizes fluctuate so much from brand and style, it's impossible to really say. One brand you may be a size 8 and in another a size 6 or 10. Women's clothing sizing is so fricken retarded.

Size 10-12 was my size when I was in the best shape I've ever been in. (read: In ****ing awesome shape) So I guess I kind of mentally aim for that right now. But, my confidence lies in how I look and feel, not what the number on my pants says.

Mine either. But I do like how my body looks when it's not too skinny. I look way better naked at size 8 than 6. I don't even want to imagine how revoltingly skeletal I'd look if I ever went below a size 6. I think one has to be quite short or have a petite Asian body type to fit into anything that small.

I don't even think it would be physically possible for me to get into something smaller than an 8. No matter how skinny I got. I think my hip bones alone would prevent it. LOL

Exactly. :lol: . Even if I were just skin and bones, my hips wouldn't fit into anything smaller than a size 4.

I don't think it's all under one umbrella. I'm very confident when I'm talking about my political opinions or my career, but I'm definitely NOT confident in a bathing suit on the beach or in a wedding where the other bridesmaids are size 2. There will always be times for all of us where we feel really good and others where we'd rather crawl in a hole. Size is one of those things for me.

If you're plus size and don't mind rockin' a two-piece, more power to ya. I just wouldn't feel pretty if it were me.

That's all.

I think that's the same with me. Back in college, I was really close to a size 6 and my hip bones stuck out. I think if I had gotten any thinner, I would've looked deformed or something.

Yep, 5-6 for me. 8 is *okay*, but over that, and I'm miserable.

Size 8 is as small as I'd want to get. It's too small for me, too. When I was a size 8, I looked anorexic. My head is just too big to have a body that ****ing skinny. I look like a ****ing bobble-head.

Dress size is unimportant to me, but I feel best when my pant size is anywhere between 4 and 8. What's got me very happy at the beach this summer, is the muscle I've gained from adding weights to my workouts.

2 or 4. Depends on the manufacturer.
Women's clothes sizes aren't standardized.
In one brand, a two might be baggy on me; in another brand, a four might be tight.
I just wear whatever's comfortable, and don't worry about the size.
I've never even seen a size zero, I don't think.
Maybe "size zero" is only sold in upscale shops and boutiques.

I just looked up "size zero", because I was curious about it.
I've heard of it, but never seen it in stores.
It's a vanity size, apparently:

Size zero - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It says it fits 30-22-32 to 33-25-35, so yeah... I guess I'm a "size zero", too.
Except you wouldn't know it from the clothes in my closet.
They all say 2, 4, or even 6. :lol:

Holy crud.
I thought my husband's feet were big.
I think he wears a size 11 or something.
My dad wears size 8 shoes.
My kids were so excited that they had bigger feet than their grandpa... when they were like ten and eleven years old. :lol:

Not uncommon in Taiwan and Japan and you can find clothes in these sizes everywhere from outdoor markets to upscale boutiques...

Do you have a hard time buying shoes? My wife also has size 5 feet and even in Taiwan has a hard time finding a good variety of shoes... When we travel to Japan, we make sure she gets enough shoes to get through until our next trip there...

I usually wear Converse All-Stars. I don't have a hard time; they have them in every size.
On the rare occasions that I need dress shoes, I usually just borrow them from a friend... and then stuff a bunch of crumpled paper towels in the toes because they're three sizes too big, and then end up kicking them off and going barefoot before the night's over, anyway. :mrgreen:

I have a harder time finding pants that aren't too long; way, way too long.
I'm only around five feet tall.
I always have to cut four inches off the legs of my jeans, or else roll them up, which looks pretty stupid.
