don't try and see too much correlation between size and weight, sure there's a link between the 2 but 2 people can have the exact same weight and height and totally different bodies and carry a different size.
There's this thing called vanity sizing, I'm sure you're familiar with it... It's less pronounced in europe, but in certain (often US based) shops I can easily wear a size 12, although my measurements clearly don't put me at a 12 (I'm a solid 16).
H&M is a european brand, so that makes sense, I guess...
so sizing in stores is often not the same as the sizing agencies use (and they use the correct ones). You could check out models with your hip measurements, and see what size their agency puts them in, but I know from experience you'd be a size 8-10 for an agency.
and nothing wrong with that, you and your hips look great . An 8 is not "big" on a tall frame!
Hey thanks for all the info! And the rest of you's too! I'm just getting back to this thread.
