A page full of positive synonyms of ‘fat’

We are all too familiar with the negative connotations of the word ‘fat’, since it is used constantly to revile people, mainly women, who may or may not actually be fat.

But never fear. We aren’t going there today.

Today’s exercise is to get Fatadelic on the word, with a little assistance from Mr Roget.

The thesaurus only gives a few positive direct synonyms for ‘fat’:

affluent, cushy, fertile, flourishing, fruitful, good, lucrative, lush, profitable, prosperous, remunerative, rich, thriving

But we can go further.

By sprinkling these wonderful words with some Fatadelic fairy dust*, I have come up with my (by no means exhaustive) list:

    abounding, abundant, ample, blooming, blossoming, booming, bounteous, bountiful, burgeoning, comfy, copious, copiousness, cornucopian, delectable, delicious, deluxe, extensive, extravagant, exuberant, fecund, fertile, flourishing, flowering, flush, fresh, fructiferous, fruitful, full, gainful, galore, generative, generous, grand, gravid, halcyon, heavy, juicy, lavish, loads, lots, lucrative, luscious, lush, luxuriant, luxurious, luxury, opulent, ornate, overflowing, palatial, pleasant, plenitude, plenteous, plenteousness, plentiful, plentifulness, plenty, plethora, plum, plush, productive, profitable, profuse, progressing, proliferant, prolific, prospering, prosperous, replete, ripe, ritzy, robust, rolling, scrumptious, substantial, succulent, sufficient, sumptuous, superabundant, sustaining, teeming, voluptuous

I’d like to invite you to suggest your own positive associations for ‘fat’.

* by means of following the synonyms to their own synonyms and a little judicious editing of the results.

    Yay! I abhor the word “fat” itself, but your list is just delicious. :-)

    Maybe I’m mistaken here, but I always thought ‘gravid’ meant pregnant specifically rather than fat. I love the list, though!

    Well, we can use tha Latin root, gravis, which means “heavy”

    Thank you for making this list! I was trying to find a way to describe a beautiful figure model who once came into our classroom and how wonderful it was to draw her and needed the right synonym to describe how positively luxurious is was to get a chance to draw curves and flesh all decorated with tattoos, and I used ample and luscious. She was so nervous, but she was by far my favorite figure model to stop into our class!
