Scanchy

adjective; blending
describing someone or something as scandalous or raunchy Scanchy is a cross between scandalous and raunchy; it could be used interchangeably with either term. It is derogatory term used to describe someone who is dressed not very appropriately; the person is showing a little too much skin. It is a mix of two similar words, so it was probably used instead of choosing one of the two words instead. It is a slang term that is replacing two other slang terms. Young people are always looking for ways to create new words that describe risqué things.
