What you say for a girl's vital statistics?

I feel "vital statistics" too formal.

Hi Natalie,

A girl's vital statistics refers to the circumferences of the girl's breast, waist and hips.

It does? I have never heard that phrase used in that context before, NH.
These are woman's body measurements. Maybe someone else can come up with something different. Can't think of anything right now:-( .

Only of my English-Chinese dictionaries says so

So I am not sure if it is acceptable.

I don't see how it can be, NH. Vital statistics relate to records of births, deaths, marriages, etc. I looked up a slang dictionary for you wondering where you got that from but came up with nothing.;-) :lol:

I've seen this one before too. No need to say I've refrained from using it whatever the context :-D

Cool Shane!

But I didn't get why Cambridge dictionary wated to used "breasts", not "breast", which refers to "The superior ventral surface of the human body, extending from the neck to the abdomen."

When using "breasts", they would refer to "Either of two milk-secreting, glandular organs on the chest of a woman; the human mammary gland."
