* In ''Go West'', [[TheMarxBrothers Chico Marx]] asked [[TheVoiceless Harpo]] what he had spent $60 on, and Harpo made an "hourglass" figure with his hands. Chico replied "Oh, [[CompletelyMissingThePoint you bought a snake]]." (The gag also appears in ''A Day at the Races'', in which Harpo's attempts to tell Chico about TheVamp who plans to seduce and frame Groucho are interpreted as, "A snake! A big, big snake!" After Harpo's gestures and whistles get more and more exaggerated, "That's-a no snake.")

A StockPhrase for narrators describing [[MsFanservice an attractive female character]], and for FanFic writers trying to make a female character [[PossessionSue inexplicably more attractive than she is in canon]]. It probably describes an hourglass figure - that is to say, large breasts, round hips, and a small waist connecting the two - but ''exactly'' what it means is kind of vague and highly subjective, since readers' ideas of what "all the right places" are, and how ''much'' they should curve, will vary.

** ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Harry Dresden inwardly note this about Wanda Maximoff in the two-shot side story ''Chaos Reigns'', while simultaneously noting the hackneyed nature of the phrase.

* Blatantly stated in FanFic/OneLessLonelyGurl when [[MarySue C'ren]] arrived at Bikini Bottom and someone says that she has "curves in all the right places". Given that this is a TrollFic, that line is a ShoutOut to this.

* TheSunAlsoRises has a rather bizarre variation when it describes Brett Ashley as having "curves like the hull of a racing yacht". However striking that line may be as a description, [[FridgeLogic a boat does not exactly have a shape comparable to a conventionally attractive woman]]. Note that the description is not intended to be a StealthInsult or suggest the narrator has a fetish for unusual body shapes, as Brett is considered beautiful by everyone.
* One ''{{Shadowrun}}'' novel describes an attractive woman as having 'more curves than a box of snakes'.
