fine figure:

The female form of the body, more often one with fairly large breasts and hips and a narrow waist.

Quote: Tillie Schlaine (Carol Burnett) to Pete Seltzer (Walter Matthau) in Pete 'n' Tillie (1972):
-- Tillie: ' What do you think? '
-- Pete: ' I think you are a fine figure of a woman .'
-- Tillie: ' I wasn't asking about me. I was asking about the apartment .'
-- Pete: ' Oh. It needs a man's touch .'
-- Tillie: ' Incidentally, for future reference, no woman who fancies she has a good-figure likes to hear she's a fine figure of a woman . The two aren't the same at all .'
