    @alishaloo:  I wish you would at least try to spell correctly and use correct grammer.  It just seems like you have no respect for anyone you talk to.  I applaud @mrsSonthebeach for even trying to have a conversation with you.

    Alishaloo – You are coming across as very judgy, which really surprises me since you are often referring to being a Christian.

    Personally, I think plus size in’t a specific set number, it caries on how the person carries themselves and the cut of clothing. There isn’t a specific cookie cutter number that works for everyone, so I voted other.

    @Lyndzo:  “I think that what matters aside from being healthy, is being happy.”

    I completely agree, especially since mental health (which includes happiness) is a very important component in overall health and especially in quality of life.

    I think it is very dependent on body type, height, bone structure. I am small and in a size 8 I am overweight. In a size 4 I’m fine. So I really hesitate to say someone is plus sized due to clothing size.

    Personally, I think Waist-to-height ratio is a better gauge of a healthy weight, and is more easily correlated to whether someone actually is healthy/unhealthy.

    @ChemistryBride:  I think that’s a better way to determine healthy weight, but “plus-sized” is a fashion term, not a health term.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  Very true, that was a bad way to phrase it, I edited it to be more accurate ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m size 12-16 depending on the store and what I’m buying, but I haven’t ever bought anything out of the “plus sized” section. I think 16+ is in department store sizes is plus sized. I also think at 6′ and a size 14ish looks pretty different (luckily for me!!) than if I were shorter and the same “size”. Also another one for a “Tall” section in more stores. Guys have big and tall and little women have petites, tall women are just doomed to short clothes. ๐Ÿ™

    I’m a size 14/16 right now and that’s about what I consider plus size. I’ve recently lost 14 pounds but I wear all kind of different sizes in jeans. I can wear anything from a 13 to a 16 depending on the brand. Otherwise, my doctor says I’m healthy.

    @alishaloo:  it’s really annoying when people use blanket statements like no one over a size 14 is healthy. I’m over a 14 and have perfect cholesterol, blood pressure, sugar levels etc etc etc. so lets refrain from mindlessly spouting arbitrary health indicators. 

    OP I’d say 16 and up but society teaches us that 12 and up is too big.

    Also is size 12 the same in the US as it is in the UK?
