portly; of added girth; extremely non-bulemic; larger than a breadbox, smaller than a bread truck; less than athletic build; underheight for his/her weight; more than amply sized; hefty;
There are many other ways to describe, as the airlines call them, "persons of size", so feel free to use any of these if you are in need of a word to keep the PC Police at bay.
