Ht. 5'5", Start: 200 lb, Today: 160 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 130 lb - ok so i have read a few of the stories below and i have a few sugestions. Now i no that we all want those juinoir sizes but lets be real. They arnt made for anyone with a figure at all. Go to the misses or womens. I love to get shirts in juinors but they just dnt look right. I have a boobs! and they r made for girls the are a cups so they dnt work. And they all have cuts misses stuff to look at. Now in jeans i go for a mid rise type of juinors. Arizons fit me really well. but i lost weight and now levis fit super good.
Lastly DO NOT PAY ATTENION TO THE SIZE!!!! come on they will say its a 0 if u will buy it. all diffrent types of clothing will have a diffrent size so dnt worry about it. Best of luck!

Ht. 4'6", Start: 249 lb, Today: 249 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 150 lb - it's soooooo bad to go to the beach for me, because my big bro is normal sized, he's 16, and we go to this exclusive beach club, where ALL the girls there wear bikinis except the lifeguards, and even they find some way of showing off their perfect bodies. it's SOOOOOOO embarrassing when i went shopping in the mall at hollister, my bro went in to shop, and i nervously asked if they had bathing suits in my size, and the lady gave me this smirk, and said, sorry, i don't think so. maybe torrid has something. and my cheeks turned red, and i almost ran out of the store. she was just trying to be nice, but then i went to this other store, and my parents told me they wouldn't buy the bikini i wanted unless i came out and showed them, and i figured it might not be that bad, and went out of my stall, and some girl STARTED SNICKERING! so, i went to the beach in an old one peice and a shirt on top. i can't even wear tankinis because my belly won't stay in them!

Ht. 5'6", Start: 206 lb, Today: 182 lb (BMI %tile: 94), Goal: 175 lb - TIPS* *JeAnS dark wash jeans(light wash colors like the almost white ones dont flater thunder thighs at all and darker colors make you look slimmer and sexy and they are over all more classy) 2.muffin top! ( this is a big NONO, girls if you have a little bit more up top dont buy low rise jeans! they will do nothing for you but give you a muffin top! try a midrise waste) 3.skinny jeans (some big girls can pull off the skinny jean look but keep in mind if you are not happy with the size of your butt or thighs then these are not the jeans for you,,if you waant jeans simmilar to the skinny jean look then go for a slim boot cut) 4.lenght ( now the lenght of your jeans should be touching the floor but not making you trip all over the place when ya walk) 5. butt pockets ( ALWAYS HAVE BUTT POCKETS ON THE OUT SIDE OF THE JEAN! it will make your botty look smaller and more formed. and...

I wear a 9-10 in teen clothes and I hate turning around to see my thunder thighs and flubbr stomach. And also, I hate how you can't really wear short shorts when you're fat. They always look really really bad. I want to be stylish, but it isnt working.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 212 lb, Today: 204 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - hey everyone! i just wanted to share my story. reading some of yours made me realize that there are other people out there just like me! i know how it feels to go shopping for bathing suits or shorts or any kind of clothing for that matter and all you want to do is cry! but i recently realized that the reason i got so upset with how my body looked in clothes was because i was shopping in the wrong departments. i love the juniors department clothing at khols. but to tell you the truth, a lot of the stuff i liked didn't fit me. their pants fit fine but only in the biggest size they offer, size 17. so my mom dragged me over to the misses department. turns out, they actually have some really cute shirts and even pants! and i found out that those sizes made me feel better about my body and felt more comfortable! i am on my way to my goal weight, although it's hard and i've already hit a few...

Ht. 5'4.5", Start: 206 lb, Today: 201 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 120 lb - i am 14 yers old and have never had a bofriend. Guys laugh at me and ask me out when they are just joking. My best friend weighs ony about 105 (lol) idk but she is soo skinny. Not like too skinny but she is nothing like me. I cant even go shopping for a swimsuit, shorts, or just regular stuff without breaking into tears. Most of my weight is from my dads genes but why does it have to be so hard to lose weight. I walk and/or ride my bike about 9- 18 miles a week but it is not a regular thing. Mainly just walking to the ball diamonds or to my friends house about 2-5 times a week and back which is about 1.5- 2 miles away.
I also have trouble finding clothing that fits and looks good on my body type if it fits the neckline is too low or if the neckline is right then the shirt itself is too tight. pants are not that hard to find for me. Bathing suits are a different story. I hate my thighs. "thunder thighs" some people would call them.
Any tips or comments are greatly appreciated.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 170 lb, Today: 196 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 220 lb - Well, to start, i can only go to certain stores to get my clothes. In American Eagle, i fit into a XXL shirt and pants, and nothing below that (without exposing my plush belly - haha) I love super low rise jeans, and I wear them all the time, but my fat always flops over the top of them (and I get made fun of sometimes, but just by my friends). I HATE regular jeans, they just feel weird on my belly. I like having my belly hanging freely tho. more about shirtss, i also wear tight fitting shirts because i love all the patterns on them! haha

Ht. 5'6", Start: 170 lb, Today: 150 lb (BMI %tile: 87), Goal: 125 lb - Actually there are stores that you can get "plus" size clothing. Best one is Aeropostale. It can go up to size 17 (in teens. also the shirts that can be polos or any other can go up to XXXL. Only online- but it's for a reasonable cost and nice. Hope this helps someone!
