    Which gender do you think is the bigger critic of a woman's appearance? Men or women?

    Women. Part jealously, part insecurity, part meanness.

    Definitely women. We define ourselves by what society says is "acceptable" through magazine ads, t.v. commercials, etc. We are more emotional creatures than men and more critical of other women. And I think we are more critical of ourselves when we look at our OWN appearance, so we tend to compare ourselves to other women.

    you just need to get an haircut or new glasses and you'll see that most of the men don't even notice, but girlfriends can have a one-hour conversation about it. And then another hour after you leave to criticize the style and the color, and the salon you went to.

    Women. When people are insecure about themselves, they tend to make fun of others.

    Women without a doubt, even if there's nothing wrong with a woman's appearence, women in general sure can always find something...

    women! no doubt about it! they say that women dress more to impress women over men also.

    Woman, you never hear men cribbing bout others. Men just get on with it, they don't make a big deal about things or bitch as much as woman.

    In my experience men are more critical. I've had them all but foaming at the mouth, ranting about over weight women. Meanwhile women are more understanding or more worried about their own appearance than mine.

    I completely think women are way more critical of the appearances of other women. Comparisons run rampant with our gender I think.

    Women are bigger critics of each other, we forever are picking at what's wrong with that woman's hair or outfit, how fat or how skinny. We are hard on each other.

    I would think women. Men like the overall appearance of the package but women will pick you apart from head to toe.

    I think it's the women themselves. It's mainly due to jealously and a sense of competition.

    Definitely women. We judge ourselves more than men judge us.

    I think, without a doubt, that women are far more critical than men. Women are far more focused on "appearances" than men are. Most men don't care about talking about appearances, even though they obviously appreciate how a woman looks.

    I would say women on the whole. I think some women will try and judge other women on their appearance and it's usually down to their own insecurities. Men on the other hand may notice a womens appearance, but are less likely to be critical of it.

    I'd say women. I've seen many very concerned about the smallest things, worrying about eye lashes, if you have the right shoes, etc. With all due respect to them and not wanting to say anything bad about men but most males are pervs. Males primarily are looking at a woman's body. Not everyone, I would like to think I would get to know a woman before pursuing a relationship and not base it on the physical but to be honest most guys want "hot" women. So if your already "hot" then you don't need the right shoes or to tweek your eyebrows, guys won't care about that. If your not unfortunately most guys won't start paying attention just because you worry about eyebrows or shoes. All I can say to all women is love yourself, don't work on every little detail of yourself just to impress guys. when you meet the right one, a non-perv, he will like you just the way you are too.

    To be fair, it should be women, because they know what themselves hate and like. It is like a natural gift that they can judge whether this color or that style is suitble for another lady or not. However, as a popular saying, "Women's feeling is as deep as the sea", they may not give real story when judging the appearance of another woman. So, the judgement from men could be more helpful. Of course not absolutely, but many times.

    Being a woman, I dare say it's my gender. Too much pressure to be "beautiful" in a certain manner. At least that what has happened in my experience.
