Accurate translation


This morning a good friend of mine visited the gynecologist.
The scene took place in Amsterdam; they spoke Dutch to each other.
The gynecologist used the Dutch word “bips”.
The dictionary says that “bips” means “buttocks” or “bottom”. But I don’t think this is an accurate translation. I would say that “bips” comes close to the German word “Popo”.
I wonder how you can translate “bips” into English.
