In brief: Uniqueness

All women/people are created differently, and factors such as muscle tone, the basic "shape" a women is in, body weight and structure, height, etc, will all play a role in when a woman starts to show.

In brief: Body habitus

Depending on a woman's weight and height she may show earlier or later than other women.
Of course women with twins or triplets start to show much earlier as well.
