To dream of the size of something represents how important you feel something is. A reflection of how powerful, competent, or dangerous you feel a situation or person is exerting. A reflection of you feel you "measure up." Your feelings about how big of a deal a problem is.
Big sizes may reflect importance, dominance, or the danger of being overpowered. Feeling that an issue is the most important or too dangerous to be ignored. Feeling that something is impossible to control or defeat. A sign that your anxiety or insecurity may be magnifying a problem in your mind.
