Pink, topless and mouthy? (4)


I believe the answer is:


'mouthy?' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'pink topless' is the wordplay.
'pink' becomes 'coral' (coral is a shade of pink).
'topless' means to remove the first letter.
'coral' with its initial letter removed is 'ORAL'.

'and' is the link.

(Other definitions for oral that I've seen before include "Kind of exam" , "Vocal test" , "Spoken - examination" , "Relating to speech" , "from the trap" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
