An ogee (/ˈ/ /ˈ/) is a curve (often used in moulding), shaped somewhat like an S, consisting of two arcs that curve in opposite senses, so that the ends are parallel. It is a kind of sigmoid curve.

The term has uses in architecture, mathematics, and fluid mechanics, as well as marine construction, clock design and plastic surgery.

Ogee is also written O.G.. This long-standing variant may have originated from a mis-hearing of the spoken word ogee as an abbreviation. Nevertheless, the quasi-abbreviation is often seen in print within the millwork trade.
