Her figure was slender, not too tall, but supple as a snake's, with softly rounded, voluptuously expanding outlines, in which the freshness of childhood mingled with womanhood's nascent charms.
Альбина была не очень высокая, но удивительно стройная и гибкая, как змея; фигура ее отличалась мягкой сладострастной округлостью линий и редким изяществом еще развивающегося, полудетского, но уже созревающего тела.

He caught sight of Gemma, caught sight of Sanin, and with a sort of inward snort and a backward bend of his supple figure, he advanced with a dashing swing to meet them.
Он увидал Джемму, увидал Санина - и, как-то внутренне фыркнув и перегнув назад свой гибкий стан, щегольски пошел им навстречу.

'Oh, but you're one of the "hands off!" sort,' I thought, in my turn stealing a look at her supple frame, her hollow breast, and her quick, angular movements.
"О, да ты «не тронь меня», – подумал я, в свою очередь украдкой посматривая на ее гибкий стан, впалую грудь и угловатые, проворные движения.

And when she clasped him with her supple curving arms, he half expected to see her, so slight and slender she was, twine herself around him.
А когда она обвивала его голыми, гибкими, как змейки, руками, ему так хотелось, чтобы эта худенькая девочка свернулась рядом с ним калачиком, да так и заснула бы, тесно прильнув к нему.

And so accurate was his recollection of her that he could once more see a scratch upon one of her supple wrists, a rosy scar on her white skin.
Воспоминание о ней было таким отчетливым, что он видел сейчас даже маленькую царапину на ее тонком запястье – розовую царапину на белой коже.

She vanished altogether under her hat; nothing could be seen but her neck, supple and tender as the stalk of a big flower.
Она вся исчезла под шляпой: виднелась только шея, гибкая и нежная, как стебель крупного цветка.

In spite of his fifty-four years, he was so slim, agile, supple, he made puns and hummed to the gipsies' tunes so charmingly.
