I think I have heard the phrase "Qué balcón!" to express admiration for a woman well endowed up top - big bust. The English expression would be "what a pair!"

Is this a genuine Spanish phrase?

I am writing a description of the time I saw Sophia Loren making a movie. She was wearing a tight, low-cut dress and she had to walk into the cafe immediately below where I was standing, looking down on her from the cafe roof terrace. I had a perfect bird's eye view of "un grand balc ón". I was only 15 at the time and I still remeber the view to this day, just a month from turning 60!

    And I just discovered from an Italian student of English at University of the West of England that the phrase has the same meaning in Italian.
