Just what every young girl and teenager wants to be called- Chubby!
I remember one of my friends telling me of how when she was growing up she had to shop in the Chubette department.
She told me of how the boys that were bigger shopped in the "Husky" department.
We discussed how the name for the girls department was humiliating.
Whereas the name of the boys department didn't really convey such a negative image.
