Vital statistics so wrong!

My measurements:

B 37, W 30, H 37 (5' 1" height and weigh 8 stone 9lbs or thereabouts).

Which according to many sites means I am a UK size 12 to 14.

WRONG!

I wear size 8 jeans (easily and no squashing involved) and size 10-12 tops. Dresses are size 10-12 too.

I want to do a blog post on this and am interested in what others have found re sizing. If you can, please put your measurements and what size tops and what size bottoms you wear (comfortably).

I can't remember my last measurements so specific but they are always so off for varous reasons.

Like my tops should have been 10-12 according to measurements but I'm broad (broader than I look) and actually I am a 12-14 tops.

Jeans are always a pain in backside for me. My measurements said 10 but my thighs are thick so I had issues with this.

That is so weird about your thigh size Wobbles. Mine say I should be a bigger size! #weirdsizzing

That is so weird too Debobeb ... I am about the same height as you when you were 10-6 and I am now 8 stone 9lbs and wear size 10-12 top and size 8-8-10 bottoms! In fact the other day I bought a skirt. From the kids section. Age 7-8!!!
