Grace Potter is hot stuff, and not remotely "full-figured"!
"Full figured" means not anorexic.

Remember when the movie "Titantic" was released? And the big media flap about Kate Winslet's alleged "overweight" ? Gimme a break.

Speaking of "statuesque", this lady was the cat's pajamas. Pun intended.

Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson have always impressed me because they refused to conform to Hollywood body standards.

Retired July 2, 2010 at 62. My only regret is that I couldn't do it sooner.

If "full figured" means "full breasts and hips," then not being full-figured doesn't necessarily mean being dangerously thin or anorexic. If it did, I would be considered anorexic, and I'm certainly not that.

Stepping back, it's kind of funny even to consider "Hollywood's weight standards" remotely applying to the rest of us Thank goodness, they don't! The medical community allows a broad healthy weight range for every height. For example, I could gain or lose 15 pounds, and still be in my range. My healthy weight doesn't match what looks good on a movie screen, but I don't have to appear in movies.
