There are more inches between larger sizes than smaller sizes. When I was size 16/18W, it took more pounds to drop a size than it does now. Once I got to size 10, it would only take 10 pounds to drop a size. It took 30 pounds for me to go from a 16W to a 14.
This makes so much sense! Why hadn't I thought of it?! Thank you for posting.

I agree with posters who say it really does depend on your body shape and size. I gained about 25 pounds when I hit menopause in my late 40s and was wearing size 10-12 on the bottom and M on top. Due to a long illness, I have now lost those 25 pounds. I am now wearing size 6-8 on the bottom and S on top. My face looks less full and round too.

For me it is about a 10 pound loss to go down a numeric size in jeans. Funny thing is that is seems to take a 15 (or more) pound loss in the yoga pants. I do not like my active wear to be skin tight though! Then again, they are usually sized in S, M, L, XL.

I have gone down two dress sizes just from working out--have not lost an ounce. Much depends on diet, level of activity, metabolism, and genetics.

Same here. Short and smaller but add 10 and I am squeezing in my pants. Older I get harder it gets to take it off. I have too many nice clothes in my closet so I have to keep at it because I am not starting over.
