Synonyms for Beautiful

Quite a few people found their way to Ego Dialogues looking for “other words for beautiful“, and since there isn’t such a post here yet, I thought it should be (it’s not cool to come to a site looking for something specific and then not find it).

So.. if in need of other words for beautiful, try these…

alluring (very attractive or tempting; enticing; seductive)
angelic (like an angel, esp. in virtue, beauty, etc. Example: angelic sweetness.)
appealing (a rather dry substitute for “beautiful”..)
beauteous (beautiful, especially to the sight)
bewitching (as in enchanting, charming, fascinating, so beautiful with spice)
charming (as in pleasing, delightful – again a not quite up-to-the-task word for beautiful)
classy (stylish, admirably smart, elegant)
comely (pleasing in appearance, attractive, fair)
cute (pleasingly pretty, hardly an adequate replacement)
dazzling (deeply impressive)
delicate (dainty, exquisite or refined in perception or feeling; sensitive)
delightful (highly pleasing)
divine (perfect, of superhuman or surpassing excellence)
enticing (highly attractive and able to arouse hope or desire)
exquisite (of special beauty or charm, or rare and appealing excellence)
fair (pleasing in appearance, attractive)
fine (meaning a multitude of things, amongst other good-looking and handsome)
good-looking (a pretty descriptive and self-explanatory variaton on “beautiful”)
gorgeous (splendid or sumptuous in appearance, magnificent)
graceful (characterized by elegance or beauty of form, manner, movement, or speech)
grand (first-rate, very good, splendid, noble, majestic, dignified)
handsome (having an attractive, well-proportioned, and imposing appearance suggestive of health and strength)
ideal (conceived as constituting a standard of perfection or excellence)
lovely (charmingly or exquisitely beautiful, having a beauty that appeals to the heart or mind as well as to the eye, as a person or a face.)
magnificent (of exceptional beauty, extraordinarily fine, superb)
marvelous (superb, excellent, incredible)
nice (really? No…)
pleasing (much better than “nice”, huh?)
pretty (pleasing or attractive to the eye, as by delicacy or gracefulness)
pulchritudinous (this has got to be the best alternate word for “beautiful” of them all – AND – it’s so easy on the tongue! Anyway, it refers to physical beauty)
radiant (bright with joy, hope, etc.)
ravishing (extremely beautiful or attractive, enchanting, entrancing)
refined (oil? No, they mean “having or showing well-bred feeling, taste, etc.”)
resplendent (shining brilliantly, gleaming, splendid)
shapely (having a pleasing shape, esp. with reference to a woman’s figure)
sightly (pleasing to the sight, attractive)
splendid (gorgeous, magnificent, sumptuous)
statuesque (as in “beautiful as a statue”? How about ficusesque as an additional option?)
stunning (of striking beauty or excellence)
sublime (complete, absolute, supreme, outstanding)
superb (ace, of a proudly imposing appearance or kind)
symmetrical (this is actually listed as a synonym for “beautiful”, which I find rather odd. Who is to say that symmetry is beautiful and assymetry isn’t?)
taking (captivating, winning or pleasing)
well-formed (I’ll say no more)
wonderful (of a sort that causes or arouses wonder, amazing, astonishing)

    I’ve been calling the mother of my children beautiful, gorgeous, sexy, breathtaking, fine ect. Since I was a teenager. None of them do her justice! It’s not just her attractiveness or figure and so on. It’s countless things that make me love her! Personality, kindness, humor, intelligence, spirit, and she’s sexy as fuck on top of it all. But I’ve grown tired of calling her beautiful and such for 16 years ya know. So I started looking for words that could possibly more accurately describe her beauty. Although I truly believe there is no such word, as probably most everyone who visits this website, I am intrigued by the word pulchritudinous. Not only will she more than likely have to look up the definition, but it will hopefully put a smile on her amazingly beautiful face. For her happiness and that smile are my reasons for breathing. If not for her, my best friend and true love, I wouldn’t see a reason to get out of bed day after day. She is my penguin :) thank you to the creator of this page for the time and effort. And for those who are wondering why I would refer to her as my penguin, penguins like lobsters, mate for life :) but I choose penguin for the fact that the male penguin devotes himself to his mate. Doing things that most males, animal and human alike usually don’t do. She is my penguin :) to all reading this….. May you always have Peace, love, and happiness :)
