Just tell him or her. Save you and yourself the embarassment of someone else telling them. Just be bold and honest. It's ok, its your friend.

My friends have a name for mee and that is "HONEST A$$" as I tell them the truth no matter if they like it or not. I am an A$$ when it comes to honesty as I was always taught that honesty is the best policy and I try to live up to that. I have a few friends that take offence to what I say and I could really care less but most people I know deal with my honesty as it is better to be truthful than to lie. Atleast they know with mee there is no plattitudes. I try to hint at things at first and if they cannot take the hint, I will tell meekly, and then if that does not work I become an a$$. I'll tell you a story of the a$$ to let you know what I am talking about. My closest friend (L) I have known him my whole life and his BO really kicks. I tryed to hint to him like asking if he was going to shower before we went out, then when that did not work I offered to buy him some body wash at the store, that did not work so I came right out and gave him some body wash so he said "What is this?" I told him "that is the problem, you don't know what body wash is and you smell like A$$!! Go take a F***ing shower or we go nowhere!!" Mrs. Mee is always upset with mee since I always tell her the truth about everything. Everytime she asks mee a question I ask "Are you sure you want mee to answer that?". Half the time she asks someone else since I am an a$$ and "Fishing for compliments" doesn't work with mee since if you look like hell I will tell you so!! Anyways I have rambled on enough so I will close. Have a great day!!!

Simply say it with no other people around. It may be embarrassing on her part, but it is you as a friend giving an advice, to save her from further embarrassment.

Put another way, what sort of friend are you if you don't? That's a pretty serious social problem she might have there, and for females I think the possibilities would be pretty brutal. She's setting herself up to be torn to shreds. She may not want to hear it, but she'll hear it from somebody, for sure.
