    If looking at it from a science perspective the underlying muscle changes the ontop fat apperance. So a taller person may look wider especially around the theighs due to the amound of muscular tissue under the layer of fat. A shorter person has less muscle mass underneath the fat layer so it changes.

    Tall people can end up with bmi's over the obese range easily due to this but really they are not fat.

    4 I could go either way - healthy or overweight.
    I agree with this. Except looking more closely at #2 maybe a little underweight.. ribs on show.

    Pre baby I was in the 1-3 range,

    And looking at it from the bmi and not body fat perspective if those women were over 6'5" even lady 2 would probably be overweight. Where as 5 in a 4'0" person would be in healthy weight range

    1 underweight, 2-3 normal, 4 overweight, from 5 on obese (although 5 I'm not sure whether to say obese or overweight, but I'm saying obese purely because there isn't much wiggle room between overweight and obese.

    But that's why BMI includes your height...because it does factor in your height when calculating. It's flawed, yes...but it's not flawed just for taller people.

    I agree with this answer - that's exactly what I thought when I first looked at the picture.

    As I mentioned earlier, look at it from body fat perspective. How the fat is located on their bellies and limbs.

    It's a simple test really.
