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'.

* In the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' series, Kyon uses this description when Haruhi and Mikuru debut their [[PlayboyBunny bunny girl]] costumes in the first light novel.
-->'''Kyon (narrating)''': The combination of Haruhi, who has a slender build yet with curves, and Asahina, who looks small yet sticks out in all the right places, was too much for my eyes.
