    I thought I read somewhere that the average size of a UK female is 14?

    Not sure if thats what you mean tho?

    Or do you mean the size that we think most UK females would like to be?

    I think the ideal weight for a woman is her natural healthy size regardless of what size that actually is. I hope that make sense!!!

    I meant ideal as in, what most women would want, what people think looks best, what we think women are happiest with in general, Gosh even what we think men prefer us to be...?

    Ideal, as in 'best', or preferable.

    CareBear: Yes that made sense - good answer :)

    I am my ideal size- 14-16 top 12 bottom. I'm only 4'11 so look bigger than I actually am, but I'm happy

    I don't know UK sizes...in US ones I think about 4-8 would be ideal to me.

    Of course,I'd think of it as idea for me,I don't think of it as ideal for every woman.

    I agree with this. I know people who are naturally a size 6 and look great, but when I was ill and lost loads of weight I looked awful (even when I was healthy again but still thinner). And I know people who are naturally a size 16 and they look amazing, and probably better than they would look if they were a size 10. I guess it depends on the person - for men too...everyone seems to like something different.

    For me though, I'd say 10-12 because that's what I am and happy with (ignoring the post-Sam belly :blush:) x

    Hmmm, hard to say as UK sizes seem to have got bigger in the last 5 years since I've been away. I would say I am a size 10 although these days that's often too big on me. I'm a 10 with curves and I'm happy. I was once a small size 8 and I looked hideous.

    I've put 8-10 as thats when I'm at my happiest.
    Although that's probably because the top half is nearly always 8 or 10 and the weight goes on by bum and thighs, I once bought a suit with a size 10 top that was a bit big and size 14 trousers that were on the tight side!:blush: Once the bottom half (like at the mo :happydance: ) reaches a 10 at least I'm in proportion!
