clumsy, heavy
Explanation:
The adjective gumpetung is often used about people, and it means that they are a little slow or clumsy in their movements, often because they are overweight or have a large arse. The meaning of this phrase would seem to be that the person in question does not wear clothes that are baggy and unflattering.
