Zaftig by Uncommon Parlance

Need the philaverist’s term to describe a busty wench? Then settle on zaftig; an adjective for buxom, plump or full-bodied. Etymology: from the Yiddish word, Zaftik, meaning juicy or succulent; from German, Zaft meaning juice, sap.

“A spark flickered in the old man’s eyes. They lost their rheumy, lifelessness as memories of the zaftig widow came flooding back. He smiled. He hung out his tongue. He described an hourglass with his hands and pumped his eyebrows.”
