What is fab short for?


Anything excellent or wonderful may be described as "fab," which is short for "fabulous." It is most often seen online, especially on social media and in text messages, but may also say it in real life.

Most people use fab to describe superficial things like haircuts, outfits, food, homes, shoes, and cars. However, people (mostly females) may also use it to describe others they are particularly fond of or encourage other females.

Keep in mind that "fab" carries a stigma of hyperbole and entitlement. So be judicious when you use it because you may be judged harshly.
