Why am I in a bigger pant size then other people my weight?

I'm trying to lose weight so I talk to a lot of people also trying to lose weight and a lot who are around the same weight as me (185) and most of them are in a size 10-12 pants. Im a 16, why is this? I wear my jeans tight so I couldn't go down a size. Here are two pics for reference
