"Peachy Patsy Parsons is 5'6" of creamy loveliness topped off with honey-blond hair that feels soft as velvet between your fingers. If you want the key to the rest of her charms - she's 34" in the bust, has an exquisitely small 22" waist, and curves out in a smooth 36" around the hips. Like her looks? So do we!"
