A youngish man, usually gay
, who has gotten quite fat
but is neither old enough nor obese
enough to qualify as a full-fledged "chub
." Less insulting than the term "heifer
" used sometimes to reference the same kind of individual.
"Joe may not quite be a "chubette
," but with that paunch, his goatee
and chest hair, he's a Bear
by anyone's definition." If he gains much more weight he'll qualify for chubette. Moo! But chubby chasers
will stand in line around the block to get to him.
Q: How many "chubettes" grow into full-time "chubs"?
A: They all do, unless they lose some weight and tone up; in which case they might pass for muscle bear
