Fans were quick to sympathize with Dawn, sharing their own personal experiences regarding how their bodies have changed with age.

“I lost my waist in my fifties! Woke up one morning and there was nothing between my ribs and my pelvis,. It went from there to gone. Amazing. Sorry, going to check if I still have ankles,” one fan wrote.

“I’m not even 50 and mine are already gone.”

“At least I can’t see any varicose vein’s like on mine you lucky lady,” wrote another.
