Question by  Darcy (25)

What are "love handles?"

I don't know what my girlfriend is talking about.


Answer by  Lottadogs (1258)

These are excess rolls of fat around the waist area. They are an indication of calories being stored by the system that are in excess of what is needed to run the body. When they get bigger a 'spare tire' may be the next term used. They are called love handles as they provide a grip while making love.

To me, love-handles are the affectionate term representing all the areas of ones body that are maybe a bit more chunky (you can hold on to them)than one would like.

Love handles are small rolls that exist on the sides of the abdomen. They typically sit above the belt line and below the rib cage on both sexes.

Love handles are small (or large) deposits of fat on the back right around your waist. If you put your hands on your waist and go around to the back, you may feel that you have some love handles back there. Many people have love handles, although abdominal exercises can help you get rid of them.

Love handles are a collection of fat in a girls midsection, most specifically at the side of her hips. Love handles usually make the upper hips look wider than the lower section.
