large voluptuous lady, usually of West African origin, so large that it takes 3 pagnes (wraps of cloth) to girdle her ample waist
The term can be used to describe a personality type, i.e. a loud, aggressive lady (usually a market woman) who will steamroll her way to the front of a line, or make fun of you for trying to get her to sell her watermelons cheaper
(A pagne is a French word, widely used in West Africa for a rectangular piece of cloth used as a wrap or to make clothes - a large person would need 3 pagnes to cover themselves
"Oh My God that lady is so rude, she just elbowed me out of the way, shes a real three pagne lady"
"No shes not yet a three pagne lady, she can be sweet sometimes, shes really only a two pagne or at most a 2.5"
