scintillatingly corpulent

I wasn't sure if the word corpulent was a word but it sounded like one to me so I typed it as the subject and then looked it up:

corpulent 
–adjective
large or bulky of body; portly; stout; fat.

So I've found a word to describe a fat person without calling them fat. I, for one, have never been described as being corpulent or by any other synonym.

If you called The Debstar corpulent you would end up with a corpulent nose. hehe That sounds silly.

I think i'd rather just be fat then "corpulent". Corpulent sounds corrupted. Fat sounds naive.
