    What's your opinion? Can you give me more advanced words or something for a fat/thin person?
    Thank you

    I've never heard "husky" used for anything other than describing a voice.

    The picture brings to mind emaceated, cadaverous, twiggy for the thin girl.

    The fat man suggests distended, gargantuan, porcine. No offence intended.

    "Husky" is the word used for the sizes of pants/jeans in the US that are larger than "regular."
