Pointless Poll Day

Apparently today is pointless poll day, which became evident when yonmei linked to that post.

Wherefore I present a pointless poll:

Dictionary.com describes Rubenesque as meaning "Plump or fleshy and voluptuous. Used of a woman".
Possibly these days fewer people are aware of the works of Rubens, and it's less evident how this word took it's rise.
Poll #273987 Rubenesque

Suggest another word for Rubenesque ...
