The astonishing amount of times a woman’s weight fluctuates in her life
Fitting into the perfect dress can become an obsession as many women battle with their weight.

But it seems fluctuating weight is the norm for most women.

Incredibly, a woman will change dress size an astonishing 31 times during their adult life.

New research says life events such as having children, moving in with a partner and during the first few years of marriage and after the loss of a loved or following a break-up have major impacts on weight.

Regular ‘blips’ also happen during Christmas and the winter period more generally – and also after holidays away.

Men will typically go up or down a clothes size on 24 occasions as an adult.

Interestingly a third blamed stress at work as the reason for the change.
