What’s a non pejorative way of saying that a woman is bigger? [duplicate]

In French you could say that a woman is plus en chair, plus ronde, which are not necessarily pejorative.

How can I say the same thing in English?

Lindsay Lohan was cuter when she was […].

Answer

I’d probably opt for one of the following (and definitely not use the word large – I don’t know any women who’d take that as an unambiguous compliment):

She was cuter when she was curvier (or I liked her better when she had curves)

She was cuter when she had a fuller figure

She was cuter when she had a little meat on her bones (a bit old-fashioned)

Edit: Since people seem to be having difficulty imagining a fuller figure without conjuring up images of Godzilla, here’s a comparative photo of the actual person OP is referencing, before and after she lost weight. I don’t think anyone in their right mind would call the curvier Lohan fat.
