What does "zophtic" mean? I looked it up on Google and I couldn't find a translation. I THINK it's Yiddish but I'm not positive.

Zophtic means corpulent but it's not a derogative word like 'fat' or judgamental like 'overweight'.
It's often used in art to describe corpulent women (for example Rubens paintings). I was not aware it's a Yiddish word, I thought it's greek.


I do not want any google ads here.
