What does grippy mean on TikTok?
Urban Dictionary defines grippy as follows –
Word to describe a girl who isn’t rail thin. Also, not meant to describe a fat girl, but just a girl with some curves/a little meat on the bones. Not a derogatory term at all, in fact, something of a term of endearment if anything. It refers to a girl not being too thin, and having just a little something extra to grip onto, hence “grippy”
“Remember that cute tiny chic that used to tend bar at our work? Looks like she’s put on a couple pounds since then.”
