    IMO means 'In My Opinion'. It's an initialism used mainly in Internet chat. :)

    First of all, assuming that the piece is talking about a woman, it might be better to start it with "She's the one". There definitely should be a comma after "class". :wink:

    Try:
    • She's the one with both beauty and class. She has a graceful and excellent figure and long, shapely legs.
