  • Mark Nunes for verse 17
    Leah had beautiful tender sad eyes far apart and slanting down at the sides like Marylin Monroe This was her best feature but Rachel still had more going for her and was beautiful also and had a nice body. Fat was considered beautiful back then at a time when everyone worked so hard, ate so little and hardly any one got overweight. So maybe Leah was skinny. Well favored probably meant Rachel had a fuller figure but with a nice hourglass shape.
