I hope that you are not offended by these 4 Spanish words that I am about to share with you — which include how to say cleavage, breast implants, butt implants, etc. in Spanish.
You may be thinking why would I want to share how to say such words in Spanish. Well, I want to share this with you because I have found knowing these words to be very helpful. I did not learn these 4 Spanish words from the COUNTLESS Spanish books that I used to learn the language.
I learned these words while living in Colombia. And I have heard them used very often here in Medellin, Colombia. And by the way, these words are not only spoken in Colombia but everywhere in the Spanish speaking world.
