[Nano] Describing body curves

So Ultra was trying to figure out a way to say hourglass figure without actually saying hourglass figure. In the interest of making more words, this is what we came up with:

Breasts/Hips:
Like ripe melons/mountains
Mounds of delight
Tall mountains and deep valleys
Like ripe nangka (jackfruit)

Curves in general:
Like a ripe gourd (not sexy enough)

    Curvy? describing each part – waist, hips, breasts – individually?

      We did suggest curvy, but she wanted something more purple-prosey.

        ah, I forgot this was for NaNo, where the purpleir the prose the better!

          Yes, at least until it’s editing time. XD

      Eventually said ‘ah sod it’ and instead of describing Character’s lovely figure as a whole, copped out and typed ‘generous bosom and willow-like waist’. Everything else was suitably purplefied.

    Curvaceous, statuesque/Junoesque, voluptuous, pulchritudinous, Callipygean (although that’s more for the backside)…

    Another good place to look is classic Arabian literature, they really knew how to wax rhapsodic on their feminine descriptions.

      Oh yeah, we forgot about that! In any case it’s been done already, so we’re all satisfied with the results.
