I think the implication is that Nina is overweight, and Polly wants to gain
weight to look like her.  The eye-squashing thing made me think that Nina
probably had small eyes, or that her face was plump enough to make her eyes
look small by comparison.  Apparently she's not fat enough to feel insecure,
and by the time she hits puberty it's not an issue any more, because she is
attractive to boys.  I imagine Polly as a very elfish body-type, willowy as
an adult but stick-like as a child.  (My oldest daughter is like this--no
spare flesh anywhere.  She's so thin she makes her younger sister look plump
by comparison, and Aerin's not even a little bit fat.  But she eats like a
bird--you know, twice her own body weight every day? so I guess it's just
Meant To Be.)
