Zaftig /zäftig/ adjective: (of a woman) Having a full, rounded figure; plump.


Today, I was surfing the internet for the latest plus size news around designers, beauty, fashion, etc.  Then I came across this word with a definition attached.

  • Zaftig /zäftig/ adjective: (of a woman) Having a full, rounded figure; plump.

Here we go again, another label for the plus size physique.

Mainly, it was used in content with a historical cartoon character pin-up girl name Hilda in the 1950s, used to describe Marilyn Monroe, and others plus size women of that time. For some this word could be thought of as negative and to others as sexy/flattering. However you position it, just know this word exist and you may here it again.
