Dear All,

Let's leave aside political correctness for a second Emotion: wink
Today I'd like to ask about this expression: love handles
Is the following sentence correct? I'm not sure if we can use it in such a way.

I don't mind having some love handles on a girl.

Now, in my humble opinion love handles doesn't carry any negative connotation, if I may say so. What do you think?

Are you serious? Why is that?

Is there a similar expression for women?

I don't think so... Here are two definitions taken from Urban Dictionary:

referring to the deposit of fat on the sides of your lower waist; a handle to hold onto, when making love.

I think the topic has been abandoned and lost among others so I'll bring it back to life Emotion: smile

In the US, "love handles" is only used for men, and many women consider them cute on a man. But women in the US are very sensitive about their weight, and "love handles" indicate excess weight, and so the term is not used for women - regardless of what the urban dictionary says.
What expression would be use to say the same thing but about women?
