Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) became a frumpy mother of two overweight daughters.
The knits were heavy, the grape prints looked like table linens, and the long skirts with the high waist were frumpy.
More hokey than the inspired objects recalled by the curators: A frumpy teddy bear.
1746, "cross-tempered," from frump (n.) "bad temper" (1660s) and an earlier verb meaning "to mock, browbeat" (1550s), of obscure origin, perhaps imitative of a sneer or derisive snort. Sense of "sour-looking, unfashionable" is from 1825, but this may be a shortening of frumple "to wrinkle, crumple" (late 14c.), from Middle Dutch verrompelen, from ver- "completely" + rompelen "to rumple." Related: Frumps. Cf. also frump.
Dowdy; run-down; unattractive: The message is that soft frumpy fellows are not only lovable but sexually attractive (1845+)
