Are you a size 12 woman and think you’re ‘too fat’?
According to a study by Slimming World, only 1 out of 17 size 12 women believe themselves to be slim.
The current national average size of UK women is a dress size 16, therefore it is sad to hear a substantial amount of size 12 women feel unhappy with there weight.
What is the ‘normal’ dress size that women would feel happy with?
There is a large amount of size 6 and size 8 celebrities currently promoting a range of fitness DVD’s which suggest that any dress size greater than them is considered to be overweight. However depending on your height; a dress size 12 is considered to be within a healthy BMI range.
The study also showed that those who feel overweight have negative thoughts at least five times a day, regarding their current size. These include the envy of others you feel look better than you, or looking in the mirror while trying something on when you’re out shopping.
