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.

[[folder:Anime And Manga]]
* ''YuYuHakusho''
-->'''Yusuke Urameshi''': Whoa Keiko, you seem to be busting out in all the right places.
* 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.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* Overused to the point of becoming first a cliché and then a meme in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfic, concerning Hermione [[SheIsAllGrownUp getting a visit from the puberty fairy over the summer]].
** In fact, it's probably the oldest of all the clichés in ''Harry Potter'' fandom: people were making jokes about Harry noticing that Hermione has "changed over the summer" (another stock phrase) when ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' was released.
* 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.

[[folder:Film]]
* ''Film/NorthByNorthwest''
-->'''Eve Kendall''': I'm a big girl.\\
'''Roger Thornhill''': Yeah, and in all the right places, too.
* Played with in ''OsmosisJones''.
-->'''Osmosis:''' [looking at a centerfold in ''DNA Monthly''] Nice genes. You got the chromosomes in all the right places.
* ''Murder on Vine''
-->'''Gina Babs:''' She was a swell girl, and swollen in all the right places.
* 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.")

[[folder:Literature]]
* From the ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' series: "'But [[MsFanservice Nada]] weighs as much as you do!' Indeed, Nada weighed more, and in all the right places."
* In ''Stalking the Unicorn'' by Creator/MikeResnick, takes this UpToEleven, describing a CatGirl as having "curves in places other girls don't have places."
* 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'.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' episode "Day One"
-->'''Captain Jack Harkness:''' Now, first of all, she's no little girl. From where I'm standing, all the right curves in all the right places.
* Played with in a Harpo Marx TV appearance. When the host of the program asks why Harpo is late coming out Harpo makes an hourglass figure with his hands. Unlike Chico (see Film above) the host gets it immediately, and asks Harpo if he has one for him (the host) too. Harpo nods, walks offscreen, and comes back with two bottles of Coke.

[[folder:Music]]
* {{Mika}}'s "Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)":
-->A watering hole\\

And curves in all the right places
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Lola's song "A Little Brains—A Little Talent" in ''Theatre/DamnYankees'':
-->You gotta stack those decks with a couple-a extra aces,\\
And this queen has her aces\\
In all the right places!
* "Honey Bun" from ''SouthPacific'':
-->Where she's narrow, she's narrow as an arrow\\
And she's broad where a broad should be broad!
* Theatre/{{Ghosts}}: Regina Engstrand, a young, apparently good looking girl, complimented on by all the other cast members.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' characters Charlene Norris and Kallie Majors, from versions four and three respectively, are described this way.
* Blog/WorstMuse [[https://twitter.com/WorstMuse/status/486988217397178368discusses this trope.]]
--> ''If a character has curves, make sure to specify that they are in all the right places. Otherwise, readers will be confused.''
