Once, years ago, I was very slim. I could have pulled an old potato sack over my head, and I think it would have clung to me in an attractive way.

Now I have transformed to a body type that can only be called Rubenesque. I have a great deal of trouble fitting into new clothes, let alone potato sacks.
