I think this is a North American phenomena (US and Canada) as a result of an obsession with youth. Travel in Europe, Mexico, Latin America - women are appreciated in all shapes and ages. But return to US or Canadian soil and the perception of women is very different. To a certain extent as well, by buying in to youth culture, we also do it to ourselves. However, I agree. If you smile and engage with the world. use open body language etc. generally the world smiles back, no matter the country.
