Even fat often doesn't land where you want it. My husband, who's outrageously thin, once spent a whole year deliberately overeating so he could wear pants in a normal men's size and not have to hunt high and low or pay special order fees for his 26-inch waistband. He put on 3 pounds--all just above the belt.
