: chubby and somewhat squat
"He was already cozily, as of wont, seated upon the widow's little fubsy sofa, with the lady by his side, and he had just taken her hand, and was about to renew his suit, to pour forth the impromptu effusions of his heart, concocted on the quarter-deck of the Yungfrau, when who should bolt into the parlour but the unwelcome Snarleyyow." Frederick Marryat, Snarleyyow: Or, The Dog Fiend, 1837
About the Word:
Fubsy is a dialectal English word which came into use at the end of the 18th century, and has not seen much use of late.
It is a pleasant little word, and useful to boot, since we have so many things in this world that are both squat and chubby. The earliest current evidence for its use comes in 1775, in Michael Dorset's Philosophic Venus, in which he wrote "Slighted by those who look with wishful eyes, on fubsy cheeks and crumbiness of size."
