embonpoint |ˌäNbôNˈpwaNnounthe plump or fleshy part of a person's body, in particular a woman's bosom.ORIGIN late 17th cent.: from French en bon point in good condition.
I don't recall where I picked up this beauty. Might have been a book by Terry Pratchett. Or was it KJ Charles? They are both excellent at broadening my vocabulary.
