Rubenesque (roo-buh-NESK) adjective
Full-figured; rounded; voluptuous.
[After Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) known for depiction of plump female figures in his paintings.]
"But our society admires thinness -- the Rubenesque Marilyn Monroe likely
would be considered too plump these days -- and so some of our children,
in the quest to look attractive, may starve themselves."

Never let your zeal outrun your charity. The former is but human, the latter is divine. -Hosea Ballou, preacher (1771-1852)
