What is Thickness?

Thick, adjective. Term  referring to full-figured breasts, bottoms, and thighs.

thick emerged as urban  slang, in the American South, describing a woman as physically attractive. It’s found in print by 1998 but, as slang, likely predates that time period when used in speech. The term appeared on Urban Dictionary as “not skinny, with meat on your bones” by 2002. Thick, here, alludes to a fuller body type the term’s users value as beautiful.

Thickness, a term and concept, is particularly used and celebrated in hip-hop culture. As far back as 1992, Sir Mix a lot, celebrated thickness in his song “Baby Got Back”.

A word to the thick soul sistas, I want to get with ya,

I won’t cuss or hit ya.
