plumpness
Noun

plumpness (uncountable)

  1. The quality or state of being plump.
    • 1913 Eleanor Porter: Pollyanna: Chapter 8:
      For five minutes Pollyanna worked swiftly, deftly, combing a refractory curl into fluffiness, perking up a drooping ruffle at the neck, or shaking a pillow into plumpness so that the head might have a better pose. Meanwhile the sick woman, frowning prodigiously, and openly scoffing at the whole procedure, was, in spite of herself, beginning to tingle with a feeling perilously near to excitement.
Synonyms
