Also many thin women have collagen injected into their facial area in order to " plump " up certain areas.

Heavier women already have this.
I don't know,I see thin,older women who still look younger than their overweight counterparts.


The key,imho,is to stay 10 pounds of your ideal weight.
too much fat makes you look older,but so does being thinner.

No, just makes her look emaciated. And/or makes her look like she is a fanatic devoted to useless things like extreme dieting, instead of dedicated to living life.

There was an article about this a while ago comparing Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis and how different they look even though they are similar in age.




I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

It depends on your body type and face and shape. I don't know about older women, but personally I lost about 15 lbs between my early and late twenties, going from an average weight for my height to slightly underweight, and looked younger after I did it. Now at 29 I can't say I look younger than I did at 20 per se, but I still think my face looks a lot better and prettier. I tend to gain weight in my face easily, and it really tends to give me a matronly look; I also have deep set eyes and a larger 'jewish' nose that looks okay with a thinner face but just awful in combination with chubby cheeks.

Ever notice that almost everyone on TV, in the movies and in commercials is thin?

And there is a whole industry dedicated to making fat people feel bad about their weight?

Have you ever dated someone who is morbidly obese and eats more than you do? Have they ever fallen asleep on the beach and the populace organizes to push him/her back into the water while shouting, "Sauver les baleines!"

Well, the polar opposite is some babe who is X-ray thin, with the translucent gone from her skin, and when she takes her bra off, her breasts drop like hanged men.

I'm sorry, what was the question?

Not necessarily, I've seen plenty fat women that look rather youthful.

Maybe from a distance....it's the face that gives the age away.

It varies. The plumper women in my family actually look younger than the skinny ones. I went to my 30-year high school reunion recently and there was a mixture. Some skinny people (guys and gals!) looked a LOT older than the heavier folks---and vice-versa. I think staying out of the sun (especially your face) really helps with premature wrinkling--no matter how much you weigh.
