What does BMS mean?

BMS is the abbreviated term for the phrase Broke My Scale. Just where TBH is used to convey your feelings to someone, BMS is used when you want to rate someone’s beauty on the scale of 1-10. TBH and BMS are usually used together. Another abbreviation that accompanies these two is, OOTD.

The initial usage of this acronym was to measure how beautiful or gorgeous a person looks that it does not come on the scale. Now it is used to rate just about anything that is absolutely awesome. A person’s Jeans, their pose in a photograph, their new hairstyle etc. that is way good to fit on a rating scale.



The acronym has a very high usage in Instagram since it is a platform where people post hundreds of photographs on a daily basis. The Acronym works both as a form of the comment on these pictures or also as a TBH on your friend’s Facebook and Twitter walls.

Even though the idea behind this acronym was to compliment someone who has gone beyond the usual standards of beauty, it is also a dangerous acronym just like TBH. Whereas, TBH acts like a medium for self-validation and acceptance from the public to like you. The case is quite similar to BMS.

The slang is entirely responsible for a lot of people to feel a sense of self- doubt and judged. People go out of their way to maintain their image on social media even though the path to their popularity is pretty intense. These acronyms have not only given a boost to this lifestyle but today we are ok with it.

TBH, OOTD, WCW and BMS can be easily grouped as a part of one category. These can get you likes, followers and social acceptance.
