What causes cellulite. I have recently acquired progressive cellulite on my thighs and have no idea why.
have you gained weight or went through menopause recently?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I had a full hysterectomy 10 years ago, I am presuming that I would have gone into the menopause then. As for weight I have been gaining weight slowly for a couple of years from 10St 12lb to 12St 2lb about 2 months ago, but then suddenly, for no obvious reason lost half a stone before Christmas.
