a compliment given to overweight people. basically, it means "you might actually pass for pretty if you lost some weight". overly trying to take emphesis off the body and make someone feel good about SOMETHING. origanally meant as a compliment, but now sort of a putdown because most people know it means the person saying it thinks you're fat.
