Does anyone know of any studies showing how to increase levels of subcutaneous fat naturally?

Not sure it's possible, but you can try cold thermogenesis maybe.  The exposure to cold might in some people cause more subcutaneous fat to increase.

Go swimming. Way back in the 1990s, I read somewhere that swimmers had thin layers of subcutaneous fat all over their body, which made them look 'younger' (it makes for slightly 'plumper' skin). I used to go swimming for several hours a week, sometimes a day (slipped discs) and I definitely had more subcutaneous (not belly) fat than now. However I was in my 20s, that might have been a factor.

Um..... pretty sure that's just water retention after a salty meal......

I noticed once that after exercising well, eating plenty of pork belly, then resting/sleeping for a long time, that my hands and face/cheeks were noticeably plump the next day. I'm a 6,4" ectomorph so it was a very noticeable overnight difference.

The only thing i can associate with it was exercising well then eating plenty of the fatty pork belly followed by a good long rest. Although i've tried it again since and not been able to repeat the effects. I'm not sure if subcutaneous fat could even be stored that quickly...

I think Rays suggestion is a good one, can't hurt to switch the shower to cold once in a while ;)
