The word means rich, aristocratic, wealthy, loaded, fancy, toff, toffee nosed, upper crust, well off, or well to do. The origin of this word actually derives from an old Romany Gypsy slang word for pennies, i.e. if you've a lot of pennies you're well to do, rich, etc. In this light, the word posh can be used as a term of light hearted derision. Please note: a wrong but often repeated even on this website is the urban myth is that the word POSH orginated from Port Out Starboard Home - based on based on the position of the more expensive cabins on a passenger ships from England to India - but this is actually nonesense whch has been commonly repeated.

POSH is an acronym for Piece Of Shit

Now why isn't it just POS?
Simply because Posh is also a word meaning 'Rich or trendy' and it's funny how the word and the acronym contradict =P
