What does BMS mean?

Broke my scale

On social media, the acronym BMS means "broke my scale." It is used to say that something is unbelievably good and can't be quantified on a scale of 1 to 10 (or any other numerical scale).

How is BMS used?

TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat users often ask other users to r8 them or their content. (Yes, this is weird.) Sometimes, users ask others to rate things using a numerical scale, such as 1 to 10 or 1 to 100. If another user responds with BMS, they think the user or their content is off the charts good.

BMS nearly always carries a positive connotation. You'll likely never see someone use BMS to mean that something is incredibly bad (even though scales can technically break in either direction).


"How pretty am I? 1 to 10"
"Girl, you BMS - so fly. A 10 wouldn't do you justice."
