    חתיכה - פצצה

    Hi everybody,
    These two words used to describe a beautiful girl seem passé to me.
    Could you give me other words more up to date?
    Thanks in advance.

    כוסית (a bit frowned upon, but vastly used) it's pronounced Kusit.
    שאפה (Shafa)
    פצצה is still used.

    BTW, it's חתיכה not חתיחה.

    Tararm: I don't know how old are you, but as far as I know- שאפה is not used today any more.
    My generation used to use it during the 70's when I was a teenager.

    As for "כוסית" and as far as I know, it does not adress the way a girl looks<
    What young Israelis would say today?

    haha, I'm 22 and I still hear שאפה...
    כוסית does address the appearance of a girl. It's considered vulgar but it's used a lot along with פצצה.
    In a guys conversation it's acceptable, but I wouldn't recommend saying it to a girl - I'd opt for פצצה in that case.

    If you don't want to be vulgar, you can try מְהַמֶּמֶת (stunning) or הוֹרֶסֶת (devastating, I think less used).

    There are another few word that I have sensed to be less used lately, but are still around: "לוהטת" (hot), "מושלמת" (perfect).
    If you want to be more formal or don't want to take a risk with informality, you can use words and expressions like "יפהפיה" (beautiful),"מושכת" (attractive) and "נראית טוב" (good looking), although a little unformal, or simply "יפה" (pretty).
