I also don't care for the use of the word  "hiney" (however it's spelled).  Sounds like something a five year old would say.


Hopefully, a five year old would have been taught about body parts using the actual word for them.

Personally, I like the word 'chest' area'. 

 

'Chest measurments', etc.  

 

Call me old-fashioned (said in a nice, non-offensive way).

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

Breasts ... that's what they are.  Hate hiney.  Grow up and speak like an adult woman.

At least we know what they are. Better than not having them to talk about.

I prefer proper words.  Despise QVC's use of "girls" to refer to breasts.  Chest would be fine, I believe that is accurate.  Haven't heard the b word used.  Maybe it was a slip of the tongue.

Off topic, but this reminded me that years ago my SIL worked with a patient in a hospital who kept saying "a flea bit me."  She had phlebitis.
