Our pastor told is it meant she was blue eyed, and fair complected, which was considered a birth defect among brown eyed, dark skinned people.

I think this statement means the Leah was ugly and at the least unattractive.

I have read that Leah was fat or heavy set and can not remember what chapter I had found it. Could help with this?
