    I had a look on Urban Dictionary and it seems that "plumber's crack" is the upper part of the bottom visible when a person bends over.
    I am afraid that there isn't an expression for that in Italian, so probably you would just say:

    La parte superiore del sedere/:warn: culo

    Anche a me non sembra che esista una definizione in italiano. Una simpatica spiegazione:
    plumber's crack - The term used to describe someone's ass-crack showing above his pants, usually when bending down. Called plumber's crack due to the high amount of overweight plumbers in Australia who cannot get shorts to fit them. Example: Hehe, get a look at his plumber's crack. His stubbies are wayyy too small. (Stubbies are an Australian brand of shorts.)

    Ogni tanto sento dire "sorriso all'incontrario" :D ma forse è solo regionale...

    In England this is also called "Builder's Bum"...probably because (in common with the Aussie plumbers) our construction sites are full of overweight builders in badly fitting jeans...

    Ciao Adriano,
    Mmmm, io direi di no.
    Il décolleté è proprio in tutt'altra parte: è sul lato , anzitutto, e poi è nella metà superiore del corpo.

    Se mi consentite il neologismo, in questo caso si potrebbe parlare di ... decul:)
