(pronounced ZAHF-tihg)

This unique word comes from German and Yiddish sources meaning juicy and succulent. Applied to a woman, zaftig is an adjective meaning pleasingly plump or having a full, rounded figure. Think it’s too esoteric” Look for it used in the media. It’s been out there lately.

Example: Lucky for the team presenting to win the monumental development project, they had brought Jill, a zaftig redhead who had an aura about her that commanded attention in quite a positive, impressive fashion.
