What Does BMS Mean?BMS means "Broke My Scale." The abbreviation BMS is used on social media, especially on TikTok and Snapchat, to express an approval rating that is "off the scale."
BMS is typically posted in response to a user's request for followers to rate their attractiveness from one to ten. BMS, meaning "Broke My Scale," indicates a score higher than ten.
BMS has nothing at all to do with breaking the bathroom scales by being massively overweight. (Usually!) However, it could easily be applied to many other situations in which approval ratings are requested. For example:
- Toni: How cute is my puppy?
- Jo: Awww. BMS.
- Sam: How would you rate your date last night?
- Robin: BMS!
