    Are you referring to street size or bridal gown size? I’ve heard they can be quite different

    Street size I say 10 is full figured. I’m a size 10 in brides dresses but a size 4 in street sizes.

    I would consider anything above a size 16 as full-figured, but only because statistics show the average woman from the U.S. weighs 162 lbs and wears a size 14.

    I definitely don’t see a size 10 as full figured but I’m a size 12 so I don’t know. My Darling Husband says I’m pretty average so I really have no clue.

    I voted size 16, primarily because, at most stores,”misses” sizes only go up to a size 14.

    I voted 16, because as the PPs said most women’s sizes usually only go up to 14, and the average size is also a 14. I would not consider a size 10 plus size at all.

    I think it depends on height vs size more than just size. I’m a 12, but i’m also 6’1″, so a 12 on me is like a 6 or 8 on a shorter girl.

    I voted 16 because that does tend to be the cutoff for sizing. I used to be a size 16 and I considered myself plus sized at that time. I am currently a size 10 and do not feel that size 10 is a plus size. Of course this really all depends on each woman’s height, body type, muscle mass, etc. We all wear our sizes differently.

    I don’t think you can make a blanket statement that a size [fill in the blank] is full figured. I think it is hard to say because everyone is shaped differently. Some people are very athletic and are a size 10/12/14 and others feel overweight at that size.

    @cassy.thompson1:  Totally agree. Some brides with a full figured dress just aren’t full figured as bridal sizes so squiffy compared to street sizes. In the UK I’d say an 18 or above is considered full figured as national average is 14-16. However I agree with the other posts in that some people, not myself, can carry the weight ie if they’re taller. Depends on what you feel I think. I feel full figured now at 14lbs heavier but my Fiance loves me anyway so who cares?! x

    size 10 is not full figured. I know the plus size sections in stores usually starts at 12, but I think full figured is 16.

    HOLY crap people think a size 10 if FULL figured!???? WHAT? This is what’s wrong with society.


    I used to weigh 118 pounds and be a size 6. I’m now 190 and a size 16.  I would never consider a size 10 plus size, even when I was a size 6, I knew a 10 was bigger than I but not plus size


    I consider full figure the size that  no longer in woman/missy section.


    so anywhere from a 16-18 up.
