You Learn Something New Every Day

Most days, anyway.

Today's bon mot is callipygian.

Definition: having well-shaped buttocks.

Usage: "Gwyneth Paltrow is an outspoken fan, and the famously callipygian television personality Kim Kardashian makes frequent requests for free Spanx. "It just really smooths everything out," she told me."

From an article in the New Yorker about Spanx.

The corresponding term for having beautiful boobs is callimastian.

The late novelist Robert Jordan used to use them both quite a bit, at least in his Conan pastiches.

As far as Kim Kardashian...whatever your opinion, but there can be no denying that is in fact calliphgian AND callimastian.
