Everyone is different. Typically, men carry more weight around their middles and women around their lower bodies. However, as we age (both men and women) the weight tends to shift more to the middle. Hormones play a huge role in this shift, so as women age and estrogen levels change, this plays a role ... with men and testosterone levels. All that being said, some women will always carry their weight around the middle and men around their lower bodies. Genetics also plays a role.
