If you've ever pressed your nose against the glass of the
department store window, wishing you could fit into that
perfect size 6 dress, then take heart. Size 6 may not be as far
away as you think.

How much weight do you have to lose to get into a size 6
dress?  The answer, it turns out, has changed over the years.


Just What Is a Size 6 Dress?

Here's some good news. Fitting into a size 6 is easier than
ever before. What constitutes size 6  has changed over the
years. We’ve all experienced the unfortunate "delight" of
fitting into one size in one store but in another we’re two
sizes bigger.

The Official U.S Misses size chart places size 6 between
"small" and "medium". A size 6 woman has the following
measurements: Bust: 34.5”-34”, waist: 26.5”-27”, Hips:
36.5”-38.5”.  These are just averages. But to be a size 6,
your actual numbers should be somewhere in and around
these average size 6 measurements.


Cross the border or the ocean, and size 6 changes again.
Size 6 in the US is the equivalent to a size 10 in the UK. In
the UK a size 10 should be around bust, 34", waist, 27", and
hips 37", according to the British Standard 3666 from 1982.
The discrepancy between US and UK sizing occurs in part
because there is no official standardizing body in the United
States.  Also, in Europe, not everyone follows the UK
standards.

The reason for all these wishy-washy sizing standards? Our
own vanity!


The culprit is called "vanity sizing". Vanity sizing is the
reason most manufactures don’t follow the standards. To
play to our vanity, companies have increased what the
traditional sizes were to suit our expanding shape. The
method of sizing compiled from data in the 1940’s bears little
resemblance to the average sizes today. In the 50’s a size 6
was a size 12 but today the average size 12 found in shops
is much larger.


But you can’t rely on vanity sizing to make you a size 6, even
by today's more relaxed standards. You have work at it. The
question ‘how much weight do I have to lose to be a size 6?’
is difficult.  How much weight you need to lose is different
for every woman. It depends on your shape and which part
of the body you carry your weight in.  Some large-framed
women will never be a size 6. And or if your body shape
doesn’t fit the traditional clothes shape, you may be destined
to wear ill-fitting clothes until they develop a better system.


Don’t forget that along with losing pounds you also have to
tone up. Doing
targeted exercises can help if you want to
lose from a particular area that is keeping you out of a size 6.

(Read about
the only type of exercise that reduces your
waist.)

The following table shows the ideal weight for someone with
a small frame and would hope to fit into a size 6.


Again, try to aim for the measurements of Bust, 34.5”-34”,
waist, 26.5”-27”, and Hips of 36.5”-38.5”. If you achieve
measurements around these numbers, then should be able
to fit into a size 6 or even smaller depending on the store.
The important thing is to stay a
healthy weight for your
height as being underweight can lead to many health
problems that even shopping can't fix.
