  My cat can't groom herself?
She's a very chubby cat
I've been giving her smaller portions lately but she's still very big
She can't groom herself down there, and it's gotten really gross and it looks painful
She doesnt smell very nice either and I feel so bad for her

How can I groom her myself until she's thin enough to do it herself?

It sounds like she can't groom herself because she is too fat. Go to the store and get some cat shampoo, then fill the bathtub with a few inches of warm water. Put her in the water and saturate her fur with water by pouring cupfuls of water and working it in with your fingers. Then thoroughly work the shampoo into all the fur (except for her head), and be sure to get her private areas clean. Rinse very thoroughly with cups of water. Do this when she starts getting too dirty. Keep her on a diet in the meantime. I suggest a formula specifically for overweight indoor cats. Also, I suggest calling your vet, and they can recommend some pro advice on how to deal with your cat's dilemma.

If she doesnt groom at all, then when/if she loses weight, she may not groom herself because she is used to not doing it.
But yeah, giver her a bath. maybe inspect her to see if something could be infected.

Wow! That is really bad if she can't even clean herself. You should be ashamed, letting her get that big. If it smells that bad and you said it doesn't 'look very nice' she may have an infection going on. Normally there isn't much of a smell, even if she isn't cleaning herself. There's plenty of waterless shampoos for cats on the market or use baby wipes. If you're able to and have a pair of clippers handy or can afford to take her to a groomer, you need to shave around the area and that will help the situation. The hair makes it harder to keep clean. Make sure to keep her on a diet and make sure she isn't going outside eating a bunch of critters. People overfeed thinking food=love but really too much food is a good way to put your pet in the grave early.

i have the same problem. Once his hair starts growing long, I'll have him shaved at the groomers.
