zaftig

Use the adjective zaftig to describe a woman who is attractively curvy.

The word zaftig is almost always used to describe a voluptuous body. You might admire a particularly zaftig sculpture of Venus in a museum of classical antiquities, for example. The word comes from the Yiddish zaftik, which literally means "juicy," from zaft, or "juice," and it became a common English adjective in the 1930s.
