svelte Audio pronunciation of "svelte" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (svlt)
adj. svelt·er, svelt·est

Slender or graceful in figure or outline; slim.

If it's any consolation . . . while I knew what it meant (darn Wordly Wise tests that Miss Gillulli made us take in 11th grade English composition class!) I couldn't remember how to spell it and had to look it up in the dictionary.
