    Default Bombastic

    Dear Sir,
    Can the word bombastic be used to describe a person's life style or beauty as being overly lavish or is it strictly used to describe an overblown speech or writing? And are the words grandiose and bombastic interchangeable?
    Thank You!!!

    Offhand, I would say that "bombastic" can not be used to describe either a person's lifestyle or a person's appearance.
