What is the Definition of Love Handles?

Love handles are stomach/side/back rolls parallel to the abdomen. If you wear hip-huggers and have a ‘muffin top,’ the ‘muffin top’ is actually a set of love handles. Essentially, any extra flab around your mid-section qualifies as love handles. They are called love handles because they are the part of the torso a lover grabs and holds when going in for a kiss (or making love).
