that is a good and long lasting question, of course height has a lot to do with. but generally i would say, over 600 the ultrassbbw is granted. ssbbw just above 400-450 and bbw over 250 if you agree

I think it has less to do with weight and more to do with overall body composition. Consider this: Two people have the same weight (say 250 lbs). One is 5'2" and the other is 6'0". Which one do you (or most people) consider a BBW/BHM? Depending on how the weight is distributed, the taller one could look rather average or (if pear shaped) more BBW-ish.

A BBW meant any woman of average height (5'4" tall) whose weight exceeds the threshold of Class 3 obesity relativelly to her height, so to speak 220 pounds; a heavier BBW is amy woman whose weight exceed 300lbs, SSBBW is any woman who reached Class 4 obesity (400lbs) , then a USSBBW is any woman whose weight exceeds 600lbs. But given the fact the BMI indec table is not accurate at all ans that that women comes in a wide variety of height, lean mass weight and body shape, let's figure out that BBWs meant any women whose body fat mass index exceeds 40% (morbidly obese) , heavier BBWs as women who already appears bonafide obese prior reaching SSBBW status, 60% for SSBBWs (superobese) and 600lbs for USSBBWs.

A taxonymic term used in WG fiction coins about MUSSBBWs (Mega-Ultra Super Sized Big, Beautiful Women) or inhumanly obese women whose weight vastly exceeds the uppermost limitations of extreme obesity ever observed by medical records (1,000 ~ 1,434lbs) and can only sustain such heft by otherwise seemingly superhuman or paranormal means... like these women illustrated by Deviantart author Kraban / Krabanart.

A long-obsolete term in the 2000s to early 2010s coined about MBBWs or "Medium-Big Beautiful Women" or any woman (of average height) whose weight exceeds 180lbs or Class 1 obesity. Alternatively, any woman who reached clinical early obesity status or a body fat mass index of 30%.

This varies depending on body shape and height... I'd say 200 can make a BBW quite easily and 350 for an ssbbw (this is plucking numbers from thin air though)

I consider a SSBBW to be a lady needing to make special adjustments to her daily routine that otherwise she wouldn't have to make like avoiding some restaurants because of the seating or back in time table density.

The great white north, eh?
Once upon a time BBW was generally taken as 'has to shop in plus-sized shops (sizes 16-26), SSBBW was 'too big to shop in plus-sized shops (over a size 26). But since then sizes have become much less consistent, stores have varied a lot in what sizes they carry, and the internet has taken the terms and run with them. So I suspect that if you ask a dozen people you will get at least 10 answers.

I had a wee visit with my knee specialist two weeks ago and he told me that I am classed as super obese (the supposed new medical term past morbid), but he also said that has a lot to do with my height at 5ft.

I agree with Tad. Everyone seems to have their own idea as to what constitutes a BBW/SSBBW.
