Either the definition of 'stout' has radically changed in 50 years, or those dresses really live up to their claim to "make you look slimmer".

To me she just looks tall - maybe she has some hips. She doesn't fit the image of "stout" to me - Marilyn Monroe was more "stout" than this Lane Bryant model!

Lane Bryant has only recently begun to use plus size models in their catalogs. I called them as a teenager and asked about it and was told that plump women want to see slender models for inspiration. They don't want to see what the garment will really look like, which is just absurd. Thankfully they're beginning to come around.
