What affects the water pressure of the bathroom shower?

Mine varies and I don't know why.

Usually is a factor of hard water. The harder the water, the more minerals it leaves behind to clog the shower head.

Water pressure is affected mainly by the uses of water elsewhere throughout the building. If there are other bathrooms in your house, someone else using a sink, toilet, or shower will cause your water pressure to drop a bit. Sediment buildup in and outside of the shower head can also cause water pressure to drop.

A lot of things, water running in other areas of your house, leaks, or problems at the pump station can cause noticeable changes in pressure.

I believe water pressure has to do with how high your water tank is. Water should come out harder the higher above the tank is in relation to the shower-head.

If there are other pipes, bathroom toilets and showers operating at the same time. The debris from the pipes which the water passes through to get to the bathroom shower could break apart and clog the pipe .

Sometimes if the toilet is filling or there is another person running water that can effect the water pressure. It could also be a flaw in your plumbing some where as well. You might wan to test out and see if your other faucets are having the same problem as well.
