Pounds in a pant size?

Question Posted Tuesday April 10 2007, 7:38 pm

How many pounds are in a pant size?

For instance lets say a person weight 140 pounds and was a size 9 and they wanted to drop to a size 6 or whatever the next size down is, how many pounds would one have to loose.

I'm a size 2 currently but would like to gain a size.

that's a lot of depends.
i know when you lose 20 pounds you go down a pant size along with each 10 after. gaining is different though. my bff says that she gained a pant size after gaining only 5 pounds. so gain 10 and you'll be almost on point.

It actually depends on the store because sometimes sizes run small, or sometimes they run large.

Also, sizes arn't based on pounds. It's based on height, shape, size, just everything. Two people with different weights could wear the same size.

Here is the size chart for Hollister to give you an idea -- [Link](Mouse over link to see full location)

If you're planning on trying to gain a size then gain weight in muscle. Muscle weighs more then body fat and would be a healthier way to go up a size then just trying to gain weight in general.

Good luck -- Hope I helped!

When you go down a pant size, there is not a necessary number of pounds that you have lost because of the way they size pants and your body type. Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you have been working out to build muscle, while you slim down you may not have actually lost any weight (not to be confused with actually losing fatty tissue, which you have done). If you were dieting and working out to lose fatty tissue, there is really no telling how many pounds you lost just by the pant size. The only thing you can tell from this is how many inches you lost in different areas.

hope i helped =>
