Sadly, that was even what they called those sizes in the stores when I was a kid. I hated going clothes shopping for that reason.
See, I’m not fat, I’m a “chubby”
“I don’t understand why all the chubbies are mad at us. Look, we’re making them actual clothing instead of just potato sacks!”
Winning at comments. ;)
Aw crap – I hoped this ad wouldn’t surface again. Three years of therapy and summers at fat camp have all been undone. Sigh.
Well, I just might have to take my “Chubby” self out of Lane Bryant for this…
I actually enjoy the bargains on the male side of the store in the “Fat Fuck” garment department. Then I cry in the changing room and cut myself.
Yeah, the Husky guys and the Chubbie girls. What a wonderful world.
My poor husband had to endure shopping in the ‘Husky’ section. Yeah, it definitely screwed up his self-esteem.

I like that it’s Free for Chubbies. Everyone else has to pay!
Little girls get the ‘chubby’ catalog, while the male equivalent in clothing is labelled ‘husky’ which sounds much more positive. Figures, since fashion was a male-dominated industry at that time. harumph.
I always thought chubbies for slang for erections…although I suppose that a wide skirt would help you conceal one.
I was hoping for a rude dick reference here, wtf? Fat girls?
I feel so bad I think I’ll go eat someone. Yes, time to eat something.
I’m glad I’m too young to have seen these ads. I already had my mom to make me feel bad about my size.
This is so sad. I was one of those “chubbies.”
Happily, with half of all kids overweight, I don’t feel so bad anymore.
