I am 152lbs, 5'8".
Waist: 27.5" (mostly)
I am asking this because my friend, when in Forever 21 told me where the plus-size section was after telling her my size
Would you consider me to be plus-size?
I am 152lbs, 5'8".

Plus size is a term used by clothing designers for women whose body dimensions require using more fabric than what normally goes on the "Sample size" (which is basically a mannequin). This is most people. It is a fashion term specific to the fashion world with a meaning that is in no way hurtful or says anything about your health or attractiveness. To attempt to use that term to translate to "fat" or "not fat" is setting yourself up for a self esteem disaster.1
A picture would make answering this question so much easier.4
I suck at using all of those numbers to imagine someone in my head. LOL
5'8" and 152 sounds completely within the healthy range to me. BMI, while an imperfect measure, would tell you the same thing, I think.0
i don't know about sizes that much but I'm going to guess you are probably a pant size 10 shirt size medium which is not plus at all that is just curvy in a good way1
plus-size or not both your height and weight are great0
i guess I don't know
-_- and that was nice of your friend...
"yay here's my size (white girl voice)... oh plus sizes over their for you"0
it's really hard to say without a picture , just off numbers I assume maybe a little heaver then average but not large1
I would say your body is just right... but I like a girl a bit curvy. ..2
No I don't think so. A busty average body type girl though.0
Got a pic of yours?0
We are the same height and you weigh almost the same as me :P I go to the gym 5 days a week and am muscular I'm 168 lbs0
It will depend on the clothing maker's way of determining size, so hard to know from just that information. Either way, it sounds like you've got a great hourglass figure with a great waist-to-hip ratio and big boobs! Very nice!0

Without a photo, it is hard to say since I don't have a lot of experience with shopping and clothing sizes etc... but I don't think you are plus size at 5"8, 152 is normal and average.1
I wear size 36 for european standards, it is small for US i guess. Usually whenever I go Forever 21, i never find my size in the correct place. They design for kids i think. LMAO1
No, not at all. You sound like a "regular size" to me. You could probably wear a 28 or 29 from Forever 21. NOT plus-size.0
More importantly, why are you buying at Forever 21? Ugliest clothing ever! D:0
You have boobs.. And hips.. So maybe?
But your waist size isn't big1
Because forever21 is like petite sizes and so what if you're plus size. People really need to accept themselves really before wanting other people to accept them. Be confident, everyone is beautiful.0
maybe for at forever 21 but no1
No, not unless you're modeling.
My measurements are similar, but I'm only 5'2 my measurements are 38-25-39 and I wear a size 5-10 depending on where I'm shopping. I'm a medium in Forever 21 clothes. Definitely not plus sized.
I will admit that I'm bigger than all of my friends, but we're not plus sized though.1
