"chubby" and "stout", huh? hmph...i always preferred "zaftig" ;)

(zaftig: of a woman : having a full rounded figure : pleasingly plump)

of course, that won't apply for too much longer, now that I'm exercising & "eating to live" ;)

Lol @ LILLY. You Go!! Haha. I recall "Pleasantly Plump." No real nice way to say it is there? :) I wonder if back then it was as offensive?
Nowadays, telling someone they're too thin can be hurtful!

Hey Lilly and Llouise-

I was thinking, what about "husky" and "tubby" for men? LOL!

Oh, those bite too, lol. Or "stocky" :^D

Chubby sizes for girls, husky for boys. Not something I remember fondly.
