On the internet, there are a lot of references to the so-called "Babushka bomb", which is defined at Urban Dictionary as

Eastern European women are pretty when they're young, but age quickly and badly. The babushka bomb hits.

Are there any studies that have looked into this, for example, by comparing photos side by side of Eastern European and Western women, for different age groups?

    Urban Dictionary is the notable claim here? – MrFox Feb 24 '14 at 15:59
  • That was an edit made by @Oddthinking, not by me (defending myself in case you were the guy who down-voted, lol:). – sashoalm Feb 24 '14 at 19:25
  • Urban Dictionary is (a) a step up from the original Google Search, which changes daily, varies between people and contains a lot of unrelated links and (b) used the exact word choice of the OP, suggesting a common origin. – Oddthinking Feb 24 '14 at 22:24
