I love this word, and I think the dictionary definition clears up just whose standard of "fat" zaftig is! http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=zaftig
I have an average chest but VERY curvy hips and shopping for pants makes me sad. I have enough confidence in myself to feel sexy except when I'm trying on lousy blue jeans--why the hell do the manufacturers think your waist must be the same size as your hips? that's boy proportions!
okay, deep breath. stop ranting, girl.
I'm just sad that I always end up with clown pants that gape at the waist 'cuz i'm an hourglassy kinda girl in a kate moss world.
I'm so excited to see this thread, i hope we can all share some zaftig ideas for looking our fabulous best in hand-crafted splendor... I'm working on the infamous glampyre boobholder, I'll let you know how that works out...
