So lately i gained a bit of weight, nothing extreme! But now a size 8 is getting a bit tight in some things, (but not others) BUT a sie 10 literally falls off me... so I'm inbetween sizes with no hope of buying new clothes I'm rejoining the gym to rekill those few extra pounds!!

I do hate clothes sizes! Does anyone else have this problem or am I just weird?

Is it not asda that do imbetween sizes? like size. 9 clothes?
Best bet is just to try different shops as sizes can vary quite a bit. Or just take 3 of the same thing in same size into primark changing rooms. theyre never the same size.

Had the same half year ago. I did get a bit of extra weight (say stone in a year, but I am way underweight when I started my journey), but thanks God weight landed in right places, i.e. I gained 1.5 boob size (woohoo). Went to buy new mid season coat and really struggled. Size 8 had no chance to fit my boobs in, size 10 was like parachute on waist line.
Unfortunately there is no way around it. You still can find "some cloth", but it's pain in the ass. So go bigger or smaller...
After 2 months of light diet and gym I got myself size 6 dress xxx

I will get back down to an 8, but for now my clothes all fit strangely!

I will have to see about those half sizes, nmight be what i need at the moment.

I get that with coats all the time, they are too tight on my shoulders but massive around my waist.

Different stores are more "generous" with sizes than others, I can fit into a next size 12, but in karen millen I have to have a 14...it can be depressing but dont worry too much, Its what you look like on film that counts..... xx

In top shop i'm a size 8, yet I own a primark polo neck thats a size 18.

Sizes are a load of rubbish, I just look at the clothes and estimate their fit.

aww bless you young girls... just wait till you pass 30 and have a kid! you'll be glad anything fits, when you boobs and waist and hips are nearly the same size... lol! I stopped buying from chain stores and the like years ago... the markets and charity shops are a wonder in my town... and costs nothing to try things on!

Im a size 6 (can even squeeze into a 4 on top) around my waist and 8 on my hips but when you look at size charts online they say im a 10 and i have a pair of 10 jeans and they fall off me so i just buy what fits let alone a 10 up top 8's are a bit big around my chest area sometimes grrr
