I was told once by a doctor, it's because we have the children(put in a simple way of course).
It would make sense, but! why does it always stay around our hips?
It's just how women are made up...is far different to a man, so the body stores the fat.Something also to do with 'if' there is lack of food...the woman can draw from her extra body fat.
Because women have babies. Nature is always preparing for that in advance, stockpiling little bits of fat "just in case" there is a food scarcity and we're the ones left to carry on the human race. Pity nature doesn't get with the program when we've had enough babies and slim us down in preparation for middle age.
They say that it is a hormone thing...which leads to more fat around organs and the body. However, there are women with lower fat...so I am not entirely sure why they have more body fat outside of the fact that it is a biological thing.

I don't think there fatter then men they just have more body fat
Do we? Yes, those crazy hormones. I notice I get fatter at that time of you know what as our hips widen, and then that fat disappears.
We have breasts so yes.
Chocolate and cake!
I wasnt aware this was a fact -perhaps it is because we work harder and need more energy, and we seem to like desserts more than a lot of men!
