指胸部丰满的女性。

DEFINITION

Noun

Refers to a voluptuous lady.

由来
  • “波”在香港、澳门地区是广东话(广州话、粤语)“球”的意思,音译自英语的“ball”。
  • 女性胸部被称为“波”,“霸”则有硕大或最大的意思。因此,胸部丰满的女性便被称为“波霸”。 有些人认为该词寒贬义色彩。
  • “波霸”一词源于香港,是香港媒体给胸部丰满的女艺人起的绰号。
ETYMOLOGY
  • The Mandarin term “波” is the Cantonese transliteration of the English term “ball”. It is used mainly in the Hong Kong and Macau region.
  • The term “波” also refers to a woman's bosom, while the Mandarin term “霸” is used to describe something that is big or substantial. Hence, voluptuous women are referred to as “波霸”.
  • The term is considered by some to have negative connotations.
  • The term originated from Hong Kong as a nickname used by the media to refer to female artistes with voluptuous figures.
