    I agree on the sizes all over the map. I own sizes ranging from 4 to 8! It all depends on where I buy them. AND my size 8 Banana Republic jeans fit exactlly like a size 6 in another brand. My t-shirts range from small to large.

    Kirstie is looking fabulous. I am amazed at how much she has lost in her legs!

    If you are a size 2, then you ARE skinny.

    I'm 5'1 and am trying hard to get back into my size 4 jeans. Almost there! I'd love to be back in to my 2's, but at 48, I think that may be a lofty goal lol.

    It is funny how sizes can go all over, but I think with jeans anyway, they pretty much run the same no matter the designer. Dresses however, might be a different story.

    I agree sizes are all over the place. I normally wear a size 3 in Aero jeans. I bought a pair of size 2 white capris there last week; I can't even get them buttomed yet my jeans from the same company still fit.

    The thing here & my point is; yes Kirstie lost weight & she looks great. Even better is that she is 60. It was her camp or DWTS that had to of released a statement that Kirstie was now a size 4. Instead of putting a number out there what should have been said was dancing is a great way to lose weight & that Kirstie lost a few pounds doing the show. Don't say a size. That just opens up the floodgates to scrunity.
    Yes I am guilty of it & I apologize.

    We all know how the media and the PR industry in general can exaggerate or spin a bit of truth for maximum effect. Kirstie being able to squeeze into one loose fit style, stretchy fabric blouse in a size 4 could translate into "Kirstie is now wearing a size 4".

    I agree she looks great, and the weight is MUCH harder to lose at 60, so kudos to her.

    So back to dancing. I would love Kirstie and Ralph as final 2. Don't think it is going to happen, but a girl can dream!

    She was just on TV saying that she started at size 12 and her goal is size 6. She is not there yet.

    I would love to see Kirstie in the finals. Len gives her kudos on her foot work each week. That is a huge part of any dance.

    I'd love to see Kirstie and Hines in F2....but if Ralph was there with her, I'd be totally fine with that
    I hate to brag but I tried on some earrings that I wore in highschool... and they still fit

    Ain't no way Kirstie was a size 12. I say 16-18. Size 6 would be anorexic for a woman of her height and bone structure. She should aim for 8 or 10...IMO, of course.

    ITA. Kirstie and I are the same age and height. I wear a 16 so I know there's no way she's wearing a 12, even if she's Spanx'd from her chest to her ankles. Her thighs and backside are way bigger than mine, and yes I know the camera makes you look bigger, but that doesn't entirely account for the difference.

    And I agree, an 8-10 is more realistic for her age/height and IMO she'd look great. At her age, losing the amount of weight to get to a size 6 would not be pretty for her face. Sure, there's always plastic surgery, but I think people have really appreciated that she looks like herself at this age, unlike so many who've had work done.
