from Greek leptos, "slender, fine, thin", the same place we get "lepton".
n. A person with a slender or frail body. The adjectival form is "leptosomatic," e.g. females find achromatic leptosomatic males attractive on multiple levels. Yet another word I would never have known if I didn't read Infinite Jest with a dictionary handy.
